Capacity planning process for installation/integration and software resources at Ericsson
2003 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Ericsson is one of the world’s leading mobile system suppliers. Their order stock is growing and has to be met by adapting the supply chain. Historically, focus in the organization has been remained on the production of hardware and its supply chain. Currently, the focus is shifting towards services and support, which reveals the need of processes for capacity planning of installation/integration and software resources. The aim of this thesis has been to map the current capacity planning process of installation/integration and software resources and suggest improvements. Two Business Units and one Division at Ericsson were to be studied: BMOS, BMOR and DMN. Apart from the three units, other supporting units were studied to acquire background information and to understand the interaction between the supporting and the main units. The forecast, order as well as capacity planning processes for hardware, software and installation/integration were studied. One conclusion of the study was that the decision where the actual capacity planning is set, is when the Medium Range Plan, which is the production plan overlooking six to 24 months, is established. Another important finding was that only Division Multi-service Networks had any activities concerning capacity planning of installation/integration or software resources. The analysis resulted in two new processes. These processes were one for software and one for installation/integration resources. These processes are built around different solutions, depending on their connection to the hardware capacity planning process. The importance of the processes lies within the fact that they are tying the hardware process together with both the installation/integration process and the software process. Presented is also where the interaction between these two processes and the Corporate Operational Planning board should exist.
