The Impact of material feeding on assembly systems performance - a comparative study between Japan and Sweden’
Paper i proceeding, 2005

There is a large difference in materials feeding principles between Sweden and Japan. The purpose of this paper is to understand how the design of materials feeding impacts a manual assembly system performance. The paper shows that in Sweden a few large standard packages are used and in Japan small alternative packages are used. This leads to large differences when it comes to physical design, work tasks, process support, flexibility, and materials planning.
