Abstract [en]

This master thesis is written on assignment by Ericsson AB, Business Unit System (BUSY). Today, Ericsson has a standardized product catalogue, composed to meet the demands in the worldwide market. On the other hand, statistical information has shown that as much as 27% of BUSY’s purchasing involve material that is not included in the catalogue. Non-catalogue material generates a time-consuming order process, it complicates the financial control and make forecasting more difficult. This study looks into the non-catalogue material from two angles. Firstly, by answering why Ericsson is selling non-catalogue products and how the situation could be improved. Secondly, by answering why the order managers are purchasing non-catalogue material despite set-up routines that should regulate it.
