Production flow analysis - CA-Verken in Sävsjö (English)
Abstract [sv]

Examensarbete utfördes på CA-Verken i Sävsjö som bl.a. tillverkar hydraulcylindrar. De senaste två år har CA-Verken haft en kraftig ökning av omsättningen och det som står i vägen för fortsatt expansion är produktionen som har begränsad kapacitet.

Målet med detta arbete är att studera CA-Verkens produktionsflöde för att kunna identifiera flaskhalsen/flaskhalsarna och därefter ge förslag på lösningar och förbättringar. Den teorin som har använts som grund till arbetet är Theory of Constraints (TOC). Intervjuer, företagets affärssystem och observationer har använts vid datainsamling. Genom analysering av produktionsflödet för cylindrar som står för den största delen av omsättningen identifierades monteringen som flaskhals.

För att kunna optimera produktionsflödet krävs det att monteringen utnyttjas effektivt samt att olika störningar och slöserier i monteringsprocessen elimineras.

Abstract [en]

This diplomawork is a study of the making of hydraulic cylinders at CA-Verken, a Swedish company located in Sävsjö. The last two years has showed a substantial increase of the company’s turnover. The only remaining obstacle of an ongoing expansion is the limited capacity of the company’s production.

The purpose of this diplomawork is, for that particular reason, to study CA-Verkens production flow in order to identify the bottleneck-issues and ultimately be able to suggest possible solutions and improvements concerning the production process.

The theoretic foundation of this study is based on the Theory of Constraints (TOC). Interviews, company business systems and observations have been used as important sources during the collection of data. By analysing the production flow concerning the cylinders, which represents the greatest deal of the company’s turnover, the assembly was identified as a bottleneck-issue.

In order to optimize the torrent of production it’s necessary for the company to increase the efficiency of the assembly and eliminate different disturbances as well as all unnecessary wastefulness in the process.
