Lagerhantering på Voice AB

by Wirzén, Andree; Samuelsson, Martin

Abstract (Summary)
This examination paper is a lead in the educational program Industrial Management at Jönköping University. The paper itself contains an analysis of the warehouse organisation and its efficiency at the furniture company Voice AB in Torsvik, just south of Jönköping, Sweden. The report also contains propositions to raise the level of efficiency in the company warehouse and warehouse management.In the investigation of the warehouse a number of possible improvements were found. Examples are lack of a system for labelling shelves and racks, lack of an efficient location system and development possibilities in work routines. For the empirical investigation both qualitative and quantitative methods ware used. The quantitative methods were used to investigate the physical prerequisites of the warehouse layout, and ratios concerning the handling of components and products. The qualitative methods have been used to get an overview of the handling routines in the warehouse.Examples of proposals are among others a system for labelling racks and shelves, new routines in warehouse management and location system. The warehouse slots should be labelled with a system where department, racks, shelves and height can be read from the warehouse slot address. Voice AB should also write a document where it is stated which tasks are associated with specific workers in the warehouse. They should also have a discussion about the strategic parameters in forming an efficient location system for the warehouse.
