Investigation of Ericsson's lead-times: a model for cost-effective lead-times
2002 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

In the down turning telecom market it is important to be cost-effective. Ericsson has recognized the lead-times as an important factor and would like to have a tool to be able to derive cost effective lead-times. Cost- effective lead-times will lead to better customer satisfaction if the product arrives on time. Another important aspect is to clarify which function that should be responsible for the product lead-times. To be able to get an understanding of the organisation, the project has been performed through making interviews. Another method has been to invite relevant persons to brainstorming meetings to discuss ideas and get further suggestions. The project has resulted in a model for deciding the cost for lead-times. The model will be of help to decide which lead-times to use. The system business area (SBA) department has the responsibility for the lead-times but this is not well known in the organisation. Other suggestions have also been made when it comes to the lead-time and organisation. The conclusions from this master thesis are that Ericsson hopefully has a useful tool to determine cost effective lead-times. Ericsson has been informed that there exists some confusion regarding the responsibility for the lead-time.
