Abstract [sv]

Grus i maskineriet – en fallstudie om förbättringspotential

Växeln AB, a company that provide sales, service and repair of industry gears, has contacted the authors of the essay and asked us to investigate in which areas of the company that has improvement potential. Persistent improvement is a recurring and up-to-date issue that many business leaders not put enough resources on. A big problem in many companies is the issue that there is no comprehensive view and therefore some of the workers tend to not follow the routines that are required for the whole system to work.

The goal with the essay is to give Växeln AB advice on to which areas in the company that have improvement potential.

We have used a qualitative method with mainly semi-structured interviews which has led to an inductive approach. 13 co-workers that work in different areas of Växeln AB have taken part in the interviews. The empiricism lead to the essay being divided in three improvement areas regarding improvement potential: information, communication and handling of suggestions.

The three big areas with improvement potential are all linked together within the whole company. Problems that have been found and categorized are consideration of the entirety, that written routines and goal is not found or poorly followed and that Växeln AB miss a decent way to handle suggestions within the company. By informing and involving all co-workers in the development of the company’s working process we think that Växeln AB can improve.
