Ledtidsanalys på Peltor AB med logisk gruppindelning på elektronikprodukter
Abstract (Summary)This report is the result of a case study at Peltor AB during the spring semester of 2007. The task Peltor gave us was to improve the delivery accuracy and to lower the high finical value of delayed orders (backorder), and to divide the products into logical groups. The logical group will be a useful tool to remain a high level of service. If the level of service increases the company will be more competitive.The electronic department at Peltor has problems with delayed orders. According to Peltor, the problem is based on delivery lead time which is presumed.To increase the delivery accuracy, a lead time analysis is made to find the accumulated delivery lead times for each product. This is a way for Peltor to give the customer a more correct delivery lead time when the order is placed.The analysis shows that many of the delivery lead times which the company use today, are often miscalculated. The difference can be either longer or shorter than the presumed lead time. One example of a longer lead time is when the accumulated lead time is 91 days and the presumed lead time is 30 days. The difference will be 61 days, and this is the major reason why Peltor thinks products end up in the “backorder”. Our result shows that there are more factors than the delivery lead time which affects whether an order will be delivered on time or not.
