Abstract
As companies compete on the global market with an increasing amount of competitors trying to win market shares the need for an increasingly effective production becomes apparent. By utilizing the correct indicators the company can identify and improve their weaknesses to becoming more effective.
The project is performed at five of Alfa Laval’s production sites, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The study is also done for two different divisions A and B. For each of the sites a production line will be studied as well as a couple of products produced by those production lines. The sites will be studied with regards to their production performance and the performance measurement system used. The production performance and the performance measurement system... (More)
As companies compete on the global market with an increasing amount of competitors trying to win market shares the need for an increasingly effective production becomes apparent. By utilizing the correct indicators the company can identify and improve their weaknesses to becoming more effective.
The project is performed at five of Alfa Laval’s production sites, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. The study is also done for two different divisions A and B. For each of the sites a production line will be studied as well as a couple of products produced by those production lines. The sites will be studied with regards to their production performance and the performance measurement system used. The production performance and the performance measurement system will be analyzed using empirical data, interviews and questionnaires.
Using the empirical data it was established that the production lines have a fairly low availability. It was also possible to conclude that there are some discrepancies in the reporting of data regarding the performance. The five largest downtimes for each site was established to be responsible for a majority of the total downtime giving the company five targets to prioritize when trying to increase the availability.
The company’s work with their performance measurement system is standardized when observing the higher levels but is not standardized when observing the lower levels. It was found that although the company measure OEE it was not used as a tool for improvement. There is also has a lack of documentation regarding the definitions and goals of the indicators used.

In order to compete on an increasingly competitive global market the production must run efficiently and be improved continuously. This master thesis aims to answer questions of how to utilize the performance data in order to improve the production.
