Abstract [en]

This bachelor thesis was conducted in a distribution center that desired to improve its internal communication and information flow. This is a challenge that many large organizations have today, as copious amount of information is communicated daily between different parties within an organization. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to examine the communication and information flow in a distribution center and examine whether it can be more efficient with the help of Lean. The following questions have been formulated based on the stated aim:

  • What are the visual and communication challenges in a distribution center and how can a visual and communicative environment contribute to Lean production?
  • How can organizations overcome the challenges and take advantage of the opportunities that arise when implementing visual communication?

In order to answer the questions above, a case study and a literature study have been carried out. The case study has been conducted at a national distribution center in Mälardalen in parallel with a literature study which, among other things, concerned the areas of visual communication, implementation and Lean. The literature study was conducted to gain an understanding of the concerned subject on the case company, interviews and observations were carried out to get an insight into the organization and collect data.

The visual communication contributes to a majority of positive consequences if applied correctly. As a result, the case company can potentially improve the information and communication flow with the help of implementing visual tools, as it can contribute to increasing understanding and that important information reaches more employees.
