Abstract [sv]

Föreningen av digitala tekniker och logistiska funktioner genom koncept som Industri 4.0 kan komma att förändra många marknader. Detta medför nya förutsättningar för industriföretag som vill fortsätta växa och vara konkurrenskraftiga. Denna studie syftade till att undersöka implementering av modern digital teknik i industriföretag. Författarna undersökte i denna studie vilka motiv som finns för en sådan implementering och vilka faktorer en verksamhet kan behöva beakta vid implementering. Dessutom undersöktes hur effektivitet kan mätas efter implementering både ur tillverkningsperspektiv och perspektiv på interna transporter. Intervjuer genomfördes med såväl ett tillverkande företag som implementerar ett modernt digitalt lagerhanteringssystem i sin verksamhet samt ett konsultföretag som bistod med kompetens för implementeringsprojektet.

Fallföretaget i studien befann sig i slutfasen av implementering av ett digitalt lagerhanteringssystem med en funktion för att spåra material genom produktionen. Tidigare hade all planering och inventering gjorts manuellt.

Författarna identifierade 14 motiv som kan finnas för tillverkande företag att implementera ett digitalt system samt åtta faktorer som är viktiga att beakta vid sådan implementering. Dessutom identifierade författarna KPI:er som de fann relevanta för mätning av tillverkningseffektivitet samt truckförares effektivitet efter implementering av ett digitalt system.

Abstract [en]

The union of digital technologies and logistical functions through concepts such as Industry 4.0 could change how a lot of markets operate. This creates new requirements for manufacturing companies who wish to keep growing and to stay competitive. The purpose of this study was to look at implementation of modern digital technologies in an industrial manufacturing context. The authors of this study explored which motives exist for such an implementation and which problems that need to be considered. Furthermore, the authors examined how effectiveness can be measured after implementation from both a manufacturing perspective as well an internal transport perspective. Interviews were conducted with a manufacturing company in the process of implementing a digital warehouse management system as well as a consulting company that provided support to the project.

The case company in the study was in the final phase of implementing a digital warehouse management system with a primary feature of tracking material and goods through the production. Prior to this warehouse management system, all planning and stock keeping were performed manually.

The authors proposed 14 different motives for manufacturing companies to implement a digital system and eight important factors to be considered when implementing a system such as the one the case company did. The authors also proposed Key Performance Indicators for measuring effectiveness and efficiency of manufacturing operations and forklift drivers, respectively, when a digital system is applied.
