Volvo Hauler & Loader Division in Arvika produces wheel loaders which they deliver throughout the world. The factory which is situated in Arvika is the largest wheel loader plant in the whole world, with its 1 100 employees. The different models stretch from L60E all the way up to the brand new L350F, with a loader capacity from six tons up to a staggering 35. The assembly of the different models are divided into three different assembly lines, Small (L60-L90), Medium (L110-L120) and Large (L150-L220). The assembly of Heavy (L350)has just been started with an upcoming pre series. This examination paper gives recommendations of improvements and necessary modifications to rationalize the pre-assembly of boom units. Three different scenarios are presented in the paper. One scenario, where the work-station resembles the current workstation, but with a improved layout and safer working environment. The second scenario states a working-station where fully pre-mounted boom units should be produced, although this station requires some alterations in the construction which are mentioned in the paper. The last scenario is a vision of the future, where all three lines are gathered into one big line, accordingly with the visions of the company outline.
