Abstract [en]

As a result of global competition, companies within the automotive industry are required to improve their production systems to achieve sustainable and competitive production. To attain operational excellence, companies have adopted concepts like lean and World Class Manufacturing (WCM).

In order to deliver, companies need to increase the availability and reliability of production equipment. This demands focus on both operational and strategic maintenance, and efficient equipment acquisition and management. The main objective of this thesis is to identify processes and success factors that are necessary for improved maintenance performance. By conducting a case study and by performing a literature review, the following has been studied: 1) how companies within the automotive industry work with maintenance and maintenance strategies, 2) implementation of maintenance strategies, and 3) new acquisition and spare parts management for maintenance.

 The results show that basic maintenance concepts and related terms are well defined in the literature. However, maintenance strategy is not unanimously defined. Results from the case study reveal that Professional Maintenance (PM) within WCM has been considered as a maintenance strategy. Furthermore, driving forces and obstacles for implementing maintenance strategies have been identified. The study also reveals that there is a strong link between maintenance performance, new acquisition and spare parts management.

Abstract [sv]

Den globala konkurrensen inom fordonsindustrin, har medfört krav på företag att effektivisera sina produktionssystem för att åstadkomma en hållbar och konkurrenskraftig produktion. Detta har resulterat i arbete enligt koncept som lean och World Class Manufacturing (WCM). 

För att kunna leverera behöver företag öka den tekniska tillgängligheten på utrustning. Detta i sin tur ställer ett ökat krav på både operativt och strategiskt arbete med underhåll, anskaffning och reservdelsstyrning. Målet med examensarbetet är att identifiera processer och faktorer som bidrar till ett förbättrat underhåll. Med hjälp av litteraturstudie och en fallstudie har följande studerats: 1) hur företag inom fordonsindustrin arbetar med underhåll och underhållsstrategier, 2) implementering av underhållsstrategier, och 3) nyanskaffning och reservdelsstyrning för underhåll.

Resultat från litteraturstudier visar att det finns en enighet om att underhåll delas in i förebyggande och avhjälpande underhåll. Däremot, visar resultatet att det inte finns en enig definition av underhållsstrategi. Fallstudien visar att Professional Maintenance (PM) inom WCM betraktas som en underhållsstrategi. Som ett resultat har även ett antal drivkrafter och svårigheter som påverkar implementering av underhållsstrategier identifierats. Vidare visar resultatet att det finns ett starkt samband mellan underhåll, nyanskaffning och reservdelsstyrning.
