Supply Chain


Master thesis. 2 students completing 30 credits each


Providing world class aftermarket service is an essential part of Axis offering. Reverse Supply Chain at Axis focus on aftermarket repair/replacement of defect products. This is operated in a global network of partners (footprint). Return of defect products is authorized (RMA) by Axis Technical Service team and then shipped to local Repair partners located in different markets for repair or replacement. Products that cannot be repaired locally are shipped to central repair partners and to EMS partners with more advance repair capabilities. The Reverse Supply Chain footprint is continuously reviewed and updated to enable excellent customer service, minimized environmental impact as well as resilient and cost-efficient operation.


The goal is to research, develop and verify a computerized model to simulate Axis Reverse Supply Chain to form base for decisions on how to optimize the footprint going forward.

Examples of model input parameters: Repair volume and growth, CO2 emissions and cost of transport, repair capabilities, inventory locations, customs regulations, repair cost in relation to cost of new products.

Examples of model output parameters: expected repair/replacement turn-around time, CO2 emissions, total repair cost.

The result shall be presented as a demo of the simulation model.

We are open to adapt the goal and scope based on the students’ interest and competence.
