Abstract [en]

This project was conducted at AGA S.A. in Montevideo and Luleå University of Technology as a final thesis. The aim of the project was to study the internal cylinder flow at Charrúa, which is AGA's main plant in Uruguay, and to study the distribution of cylinders to the branches in Mercedes and Tacuarembó, to reduce cost, manpower, lead-time and increase their service level. To fulfill the aim some proposals were made for the following areas: Control- and tracking of cylinders in the internal flow, Layout, Cylinder park and Distribution to the branches. The proposals that will solve the most important problems at AGA S.A. today are the control system, the movement of the CO2 station and the inclusion of the industrial gases in the AGA truck used for medicine gas distribution.
