Abstract
This master’s thesis is the final step of the Master’s degree in Supply Chain and Logistics, carried out in the Department of Engineering Logistics of Lund University.

This study deals with how to improve a supply chain side of a part of the Sandvik’s products, which is carried out with the collaboration of the company, in the Sandvik’s base in Svedala.

The study focuses only on a part of their spare parts, the commercial designations spare parts and SRP special components. Both are spare parts of the stationary business unit, which is within the Crushing and Screening product area, and at the same time, is in turn within Sandvik’s business area, Sandvik Minning and Rock Technology.

This master’s thesis is the final step of the Master’s degree in Supply Chain and Logistics, carried out in the Department of Engineering Logistics of Lund University.

This study deals with how to improve a supply chain side of a part of the Sandvik’s products, which is carried out with the collaboration of the company, in the Sandvik’s base in Svedala.

The study focuses only on a part of their spare parts, the commercial designations spare parts and SRP special components. Both are spare parts of the stationary business unit, which is within the Crushing and Screening product area, and at the same time, is in turn within Sandvik’s business area, Sandvik Minning and Rock Technology.

Likewise, this thesis is in charge of the supply chain from the central European warehouse of these pieces to either the final customer or other smaller stores in Europe. The study has been divided into two parts. In the first one,in order to identify some of the main problems that this supply chain is performed,through interviews and great research, as well as, and through cause-effect relationships, their consequences.

Secondly, to measure what the result would be and effect of Sandvik and the client if these problems in the supply chain disappeared is wanted, trying to explain the value they would have. For this, two variables are measured, the cost related to Sandvik, and the lead time, related to customer service. In order to evaluate these variables, a simulation model in Excel is created that reproduces various situations in which Sandvik would be found. After three simulations, the scenario that would represent the situation in which the problems of the supply chain would be solved arrives and where both Sandvik and its customers would like. Finally, several conclusions are drawn from this study, as well as some challenges in solving these problems and producing the perfect situation for all actors involved in the supply chain. The latter will form part of the proposed further studies. (Less)
