Abstract
Research questions: How to implement a traceability system in an automated sanitary ware production system
Deliverables: This thesis establishes whether it is cost beneficial to implement a traceability system for an automated sanitary ware production system where there are no legislative requirements.
Methodology: The research method that is used in this thesis is a combination of action research and experimental methods. A literature review, observations and interviews were performed in order to identify existing traceability theories and applications as well as fully understand the production characteristics of sanitary ware manufacturing. In addition, experiments were performed in order to evaluate the most suitable traceability... (More)
Research questions: How to implement a traceability system in an automated sanitary ware production system
Deliverables: This thesis establishes whether it is cost beneficial to implement a traceability system for an automated sanitary ware production system where there are no legislative requirements.
Methodology: The research method that is used in this thesis is a combination of action research and experimental methods. A literature review, observations and interviews were performed in order to identify existing traceability theories and applications as well as fully understand the production characteristics of sanitary ware manufacturing. In addition, experiments were performed in order to evaluate the most suitable traceability application for the use in an automated sanitary ware production system.
Delimitations: This thesis covers the use of traceability and its applications in the automated production lines at Ifö’s factory in Bromölla and it only includes the internal flow of goods at Ifö.
Conclusions: The solution includes a direct part marking on each and every product that is produced in Bromölla, with an individual serial number. All product movements will be stored, allowing for the ability to conduct follow-ups on defects and performance of different parts of the production system. It can be concluded that the use of an automated traceability system is cost-beneficial in the automated production lines at Ifö Sanitär. (Less)
