Möjligheter till effektivare lagerstyrning : på Eco Log Sweden AB
Small stores are one of the most important goals in business today, but if companies have small stores it can be issues that the production doesn’t run easy. Small store can create liquidity because less money is bind in the store, and the company can use this money to better investments.
The purpose of the examination work was to give Eco Log condition to keep their store small and still make the production run without problems. Since I have worked at Eco Log for one and a half year I had good insight in the company.
First I created a theoretic reference frame, with this and my insight in the company I discovered one thing that was very interesting. This thing was that all the parts in Eco Log store were controlled in the same basics.
The biggest task was to divide all parts in the different groups, which could be controlled different to keep the value of the store, as low as possible. From that I created an ABC-analysis based on the parts volume-worth. The ABC-analysis showed which parts had the most effect on the value of the store and which had the less effect. Three different classes were made A, B and C. For these three classes different types of planning were suggested. The suggestions that were made have created from the company possibility.
To make things easier for Eco Log in the future some suggestions were made how to keep the ABC-analysis correct in the future.
