How to make the Transference of Information more Efficient : A study of the Supply Chain of Medicine (English)
This report is the documentation of a project in the education Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering. The project was carried out at Alfakonsult AB. The purpose of the project was to map out the transference of information between the different operators in the supply chain of medicine in Sweden and to analyse this in order to reduce lead-time and the total throughputtime. The supply chain of medicine in Sweden consists of producers, distributors, one wholesaler, prescribers and patients. The mapping of the transference of information showed that most operators in the supply chain have done well introducing technical aids to facilitate the transference of information. However, the interface between the wholesaler, prescribers and patients, has not reached the same level. The analysis results in several suggestions making the supply chain more efficient by improving the transference of information by rationalise, automatize, reconfigure and collaborate activities in the order process.
