Abstract [sv]

Detta arbete har genomförts hos ett Företag som tillverkar maskiner till skogsjordbruk. Per dags dato anser Företaget att en Komponent till dessa maskiner har för höga tillverkningskostnader, vilket medför en risk i att kunder hellre köper andra företags liknande komponenter. Komponenten tillverkas idag av en underleverantör, Underleverantören. Arbetet började med en kartläggning av Komponentens delkomponenter och fallstudier av tillverkningsmetoden gjordes innan alternativ på hur tillverkningskostnaderna kunde påverkas togs fram. Integrerade delar, standardiserade delkomponenter, olika beställningsvolymer och upptäckter av tillverkningssteg som kunde avlägsnas var de åtgärder som togs till vidare analys och jämförelser. Resultatet av arbetet har inte genererat kostnadsreduktioner som gör Företaget konkurrenskraftigt på marknaden för den specifika Komponenten, däremot har arbetet genererat förslag som Företaget kan arbeta vidare med för att sänka inköpspriset av Komponenten.

Abstract [en]

This investigation is made in cooperation with a manufacturing company making machines for the foresting industry. The Company is of the opinion that a Component of these machines has a manufacturing cost that is too high, which in turn brings a risk of customer buying similar components manufactured by competing companies to The Company. The Company’s Components is today manufactured by a subcontractor, The Subcontractor. This work began with an investigation of the individual parts of The Component and case studies of the manufacturing process. Further on where suggestions of how to affect the manufacturing costs defined; integration of parts, standardize components, analyse of different ordering volume, and elimination of process steps in the manufacturing process. These actions effect of the manufacturing costs were then examined and compared. The result of this work has not generated cost reductions of The Component that would make The Company competitive on the market of The Component. However the work have generated suggestions on other alternatives that The Company can continue working with to reduce the manufacturing costs of The Component.
