dc.description.abstractThe research addresses the growing concerns over excessive use of technical documentation in the installation package. In conjunction with the overproduction, preparation costs increase from sending the installation package to the offshore platform in physical copies and by boat. The study attempts to identify the main obstacles centered in the process, with the use of Value Stream Mapping (VSM). The analysis determine two rigorous, yet viable hurdles throughout the VSM, highlighting those potential improvements as both necessary and liable to feature Lean tools and techniques. The objectives are ‘irrelevant content reduction’ and new ‘electronic installation packages’. By applying qualitative research, empirical data collection, alongside convenience and snow ball sampling method to gather relevant information from two departments, the study designates towards benefitting from the Lean tool 5S and the implementation cycle PDSA. In doing so, it manages to evaluate the total lead-time of the VSM, inspect the process cycle efficiency and investigate the cost reduction program.nb_NO
