by Johansson, Mikael; Magnusson, Andreas; Stråth, Simon

Abstract (Summary)
The work with this report has been focused on developing a methodology model for control at purchase. The methodology model covers parts classification, dispatching systems, batch shaping and more. The aim with the methodology model is that it will be used as an aid for a cost effective material planning to increase the value for customer.The work covers also a description of the present situation and the purchase process at Company X. Six parts have been applied, two from each class (A, B and C), in the methodology/model. The parts that have been applied are included in the flow between Company X and their supplier Company Y.Data have been collected trough literature studies, interviews and the company’s business system. The methodology model has been developed with a broad literature study in the concerned areas.The application of the six parts shows that the methodology model works well and shows that there is a possibility to reduce the costs. The methodology model can also help finding news ways in the material planning.The conclusion can be drawn that the methodology model is a good help for material planning and that the correct control and batch shaping gives a significant cost reduction. Company X has today an effective purchase activity, but there are potentials for improvements, especially concerning the batch shaping and an increased use of kanban. Moreover there is potential to gain more with a better use of the company’s business system.
