Case Studies

Brief

 

To analyse current order processing at packing benches, with a view to targeting any waste.

 

Findings

 

  • Bags in use were excessively large for the items being packed
  • Approx. 1 hr/day cutting bubble wrap into the correct size strips
  • Packers took an average of 14 seconds to wrap orders in bubble wrap
  • 90% of all orders would fit into a bubble lined mailing bag
  • Large bags were folded down to suit the size of the product meaning the bags are not secured

Recommendations

 

  • Use of bubble lined bags will achieve a 34% productivity gain in the packing process
  • Use of correct sized bag will result in a direct consumable cost saving
  • Correct sized bags will result in correct sealing improving pack security
  • Use of bubble bags will remove the need to cut bubble rolls into strips
