Abstract
Xylem Inc., with the main production plant in Emmaboda, has in one of the
product workshops decided to analyse the benefits of creating a central packaging station for its five assembling lines. The author of this report was given this objective as a master thesis.
The methodology of the project is divided into three different phases – one descriptive, one explorative and one problem-solving phase. The main work strategy has mainly been attached to the DMAIC step method. A vital part of this thesis has been to work close to the responsible production engineers in the workshop.
In the first two phases, the author presents and analyse the existent production regarding mainly a logistic point of view. A brief introduction to the function... (More)
Xylem Inc., with the main production plant in Emmaboda, has in one of the

The methodology of the project is divided into three different phases – one descriptive, one explorative and one problem-solving phase. The main work strategy has mainly been attached to the DMAIC step method. A vital part of this thesis has been to work close to the responsible production engineers in the workshop.
In the first two phases, the author presents and analyse the existent production regarding mainly a logistic point of view. A brief introduction to the function and the components of the products is introduced and the phase is ended with a cost analysis followed by a list of objectives and goals for the central packaging station to fulfil after implementation.
In the problem-solving phase, the author concludes that the main benefits of install a central packaging station are related to savings regarding balancing losses, relocations of personnel and less work regarding managing material handling. Though the implementation will generate large changes and displacements in the workshop, the installation of a central packaging station will impact all flows in the factory layout. The result and conclusions of the thesis is consequently that the factory management analyse all flows in the workshop before decide to implement or not. This report has only processed packaging related flows and it is obvious that from a package point of view, an implementation is clearly advantageous. (Less)
