Overproduction and its Connection with Economic Sustainability : Factors that Contributes to Overproduction. (English)
Abstract [en]

Abstract

 

Purpose– The purpose of this study is to investigate factors that contribute to overproduction and what economic consequence overproduction has. To fulfil the purpose, two research questions has been formulated:

  1. Why does overproduction take place in companies with CNC-machines?
  2. How does overproduction affect cost items that contributes to economic sustainability?

Method– To fulfil the study’s purpose a single case study has been conducted on a manufacturing company within the automotive industry. Interviews, document studies and a focus group have been the methods for the empirical data collection. The empirical data has been analysed together with the theoretical framework and created the study’s result. 

 

 

Results– The study resulted in identifying several cost items that are affected by overproduction and different factors that contribute to overproduction have been identified. 

 

Implications – The study contributed with new information to the knowledge gap regarding overproduction and the consequences of it. Findings from the study can be used as a template for companies that are interested as to which factors contribute to overproduction. 

 

Limitations– To conduct the study one focal company was used, the focal company is of a manufacturing type with a CNC-machine park and are active in the automotive industry. Because of the characteristics in the automotive industry and the use of only one focal company the generalizability of the study is reduced. To increase the generalizability further studies are required. 

 

Keywords– Overproduction, economic sustainability, automotive, Leagile, Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), Economic Order Quantity (EOQ), Just-In-Time (JIT).
