Abstract [en]

KSL Trading Inc is a trading company in the Jönkoping area that distributes

material for the furniture and interior design industry.

The purpose of this report is to analyze the existing material flow and

warehouse layout as well as to identify the issues there are today at KSL’s

warehouse for board material. When we identified what kind of problems that

existed we were able to design a new plan for the material flow and storage

possibilities. The problems we found where:

• There is no well-organised warehouse layout

• There are no routines to keep the warehouse clean and in order

• There is no formed plan how to handle material

To solve these problems we have used different methods like interviews,

observations, calculations and literature studies. The information we have

gathered from these methods have been analyzed and developed into a result

In the result we have made two time studies on different orders in the existing

layout. We have presented two proposals on layout improvements on the

warehouse that improves the handling and flow of the material. Then we

simulated these orders in one of the two layout proposals to make an estimate

of time improvements. In packing orders we can show on an estimated

improvement in time of 45 %

We have divided the material into eight different families and then performed

an ABC-analysis on these families. We have also analysed how much material

of each family that is stored.

We have designed a new marking label that simplifies the work to maintain the

materials that are stored well in order and structure.

Finally we have been able to draw some overall conclusions on how to improve

the situation for the entire organisation.
