Sammanfattning: The search for profitability in these days’ enterprises is naturally a search for cost savings. Formanufacturing enterprises is often the biggest cost founded in labour. In the search for savingsome of these costs, automated manufacturing is a common and successful solution. Theenterprise Kinna Automatic AB has come up with an automated solution for fabric filtermanufacturing, this solution needs to be investigated to know how it will affect the fabricfilter enterprises’ profitability. This study uses two different degrees of automation, since theautomated sewing line is modularized. The framing of a question for the study is “How doesdifferent degrees of automation impact on the profitability in fabric filter manufacturing?”.The two degrees of automation is in the study compared to the classic way of fabric filtermanufacturing, the manual way. Calculations of productivity shows that the needed labourtime will decrease from an implementation of the automated line. This decrease affects theprofit positively, and the capital turnover decreases from the investment, which then make theprofitability increase for the both degrees of automation. Since the sewing line still is aprototype and not a finished product, it is not ready yet for 100 percent manufacturing. This ofcourse affects the reliability and validity of the study, but not that much since the purpose ofthe study is to give a pointer for what way and how much the profitability affects. The studyshows that the labour costs are being lowered when the two degrees of automationimplements. It gives us the conclution that the two degrees of automation affects theprofitability of the enterprise positively when being implemented.
