Abstract [en]

The subject of this master thesis is to evaluate the technical and commercial efficiency of different material supply concepts for the assembly hall of the BMW production plant in Munich from an external supply centre. The material supply can either be carried out via public roads or via a bridge that directly connects the external supply centre with the assembly hall. The aim is to develop and implement a methodological procedure for the technical and commercial evaluation of applicable conveyor and transportation systems. This methodological procedure shall provide a basis for decision-making and recommendations of action shall be derived. The first step of the methodological procedure was to conduct a pre-selection of suitable conveyor and transportation systems to conduct the material supply with. A value benefit analysis of the different alternatives was carried out in order to evaluate their technical efficiency. The alternatives’ commercial efficiency was then evaluated by means of an investment appraisal. The final step was to conduct an overall evaluation while taking the results of the technical and the commercial evaluation into account. Recommendations of actions were then derived based on the results of the steps described above.

Abstract [sv]

Fokus för detta examenarbete är att jämföra och utvärdera effektiviteten ur ett tekniskt och kommersiellt perspektiv i en monteringshall då olika materialleverantörskoncept testas och externa leverantörscentra används. Studien har genomförts i BMW:s produktionsanläggning i München. Materialleveransen kan antingen ske via allmän väg eller via en bro som direkt sammanbinder det externa leverantörscentrat med monteringshallen. Syftet med detta arbete är att utveckla och implementera en metodik och procedur för att tekniskt och kommersiellt kunna utvärdera lämpliga transportband och transportsystem. Denna metodik och procedur ska ligga till grund för beslutsprocessen och rekommenderade åtgärder. Första steget i utvecklandet av metodiken och proceduren var att göra ett förval av lämpliga transportband och transportlösningar med vilka materialleveranserna kunde ske. En nyttoanalys med avseende på värde genomfördes därefter för att utvärdera de olika alternativens tekniska effektivitet. De olika alternativens kommersiella effektivitet utvärderades också genom investeringsbedömningar. Det slutgiltiga steget var att genomföra en övergripande utvärdering med hänsyn tagen till tekniska och kommersiella aspekter. Baserat på de erhållna resultaten utformades rekommendationer för åtgärder.
