ABSTRACT

It is well-known by the food industry practitioners that raw material waste is one of the biggest issues related to the industrialization process. These wastes affect costs directly and also affect production planning and control. This work will present a real case applied in a big food industry in Latin America where the DMAIC process were used to reduce approx. 2 millions of dollars of waste per year. By the end of the session, the presenter will discuss lessons learned focusing on costs and production planning and control.
