Abstract [en]

This degree project is based on identifying and allocation of costs in a packaging section at Electrolux Distriparts in Torsvik.

The purpose of this thesis is to identify the costs that emerge when packaging different articles and show how the costs are allocated. The report also contains improvement suggestions about how the company can use the current computer system more efficient.

The methods that have been used in order to approach the problem and the collection of information have mainly been literature study, interviews and observation.

The work started with answering the questions; which expenditure cost and direct cost exist in the section, how can they be allocated, if improvement can be done and how the flow of information is supposed to happen.

In order to answer the questions we used our former experience and the knowledge we achieved by reading literature, interview relevant persons in the company and observations carried out in the section.

Through our studies, we came up with an Excel file, which is the groundwork for a template that can be used by the company in different occasions depending on the situation and need. It is important to remember to modify the template if the presumptions change. In the template, we have identified the different kind of costs that emerge when packaging different articles and we have also allocated the costs. In addition formulas and estimations that are necessary for the cost calculation are presented.

The work consisted in making the groundwork for a template. That means there is a lot of work for the company left to do until the template is ready to be used in working routine.

The template includes estimations that are not tested with real figures and therefore can contain hidden defects. The company could not supply us with the figures on the relevant costs, because of secrecy reason. Therefore it is very difficult to eliminate the risk for hidden defects in the template. In order to distinguish obvious defects, made up figures were used. These can differ essential from the real figures, but the purpose is to minimise the defects and help the company to see how the template works.

An improvement suggestion is that the company should use the proposed flow of information in order to save time and therefore be able to spend more time with the main operations. The flow of information saves time by:

• Using more the current computer system

• Being simple

• Identifying unnecessary activities, so that it can be removed or modified
