Ex-job/thesis work: Raw Material Purchasing IKEA Components, Älmhult
The ex-job will be done at IKEA Components (ICOMP). ICOMPs task within IKEA is to pursue the development of future unique and customer friendly solutions within fittings and components to the IKEA range. We create substantial cost-and quality benefits for IKEA in our development and trade of raw materials, components and fittings.
IKEA Components is part of the IKEA group and share the IKEA vision and values. Our business is global and we are 750 employees based in Sweden, Slovakia and China. Through co-operation with IKEA Trading Offices we are in addition represented at several other sites around the world.
The assignment is to give suggestions on how to make a very professional risk analyze for purchasing of raw-materials. Further, to give recommendation for a systematic way for ICOMP to collect and analyse this information in the future and to create risk senarios.
As a base for this thesis there will be IKEA internal sources of information available, but it is also possible to conduct a market survey or other forms of research in order to collect more information. You are welcome to come with suggestions on how to solve the task.
Final result should include:
• Give recommendations for how to make a professional raw-material market analyze and what factors to analyze
• Give recommendations for a systematic way to collect and analyse this information in the future
• Find main market key performance indicators to follow
• How do other companies purchase and speculate in raw-materials (Benchmark)?
Most of the ex-job will be done from home or at the university.
