    Hi All,
    I would like to get some assistance in project of sea food processing product.
    The product flow out from processing and stored in freeze foe next day delivery .
    Next day when they get it out from freezer one person go for pick it and then place at dispatch area , There it is wait again for inspection of correct order then paste sticker on it for location with date and time .
    Then again wait for dispatch .
    no sequencing on floor .
    no visual control of product.

    My query is how to reduce this time, however I already found many ideas but ,I need to know some other opinions and more metrics for this process.

    Looking forward for to Get some information.

    Have you put a team together and mapped the process and gotten data?

    You might start with a time-value map. This is simply a time line that shows how long each step takes and how much wait time occurs between steps. Draw a line and mark it with equal time increments. Shade a bar above the line for each value-added step, as wide as it takes to do it. Shade a bar below the line for each non-value-added step such as inspection. Leave a gap for wait time between steps.

    I have studied and discussion with management they wants to reduce 2nd shift in which currently pack all order .

    I have an Idea but To put all items according to order in chiller direct from the process all day and when order complete pack order and load in truck but their are many concern,

    Space ,Sequencing ,Extra Product handling after order pick, Storing in chiller at different hight with fork lift .

    However by this we can reduce totally 2nd shift or we can manage all this by 2 person .

    But I want about you ideas .

    Looking forward for that.

    Regards

    I Have done process mapping and having data as well ,But Management first to implement to reduce 2nd shift then start work on whole thing by that we can pull the product at the moment we have push and waiting in extreme excess.

    Interesting business approach with making the problem worse to force a need for a solution.

    Who knows why but maybe there’s a big need to make the changes like that. Now that you’ve done a process map and hopefully with team members from the process–get some data points to begin to know where to proceed. Do you have a project champion and do you have a primary metric established for the team to succeed? Are you presently measuring the project metric or do you need to start right away gathering it.

    You’re still in the Define/Measure phase. Grats on making progress. Too often people want quick silver bullets and most problems can’t be solved with a silver bullet or arrow found on the web log.

    Hi,

    So if you have one truck with limited capacity, have you decided your production output basis that or target basis that.
    if target is decided and they are not able to produce then you might have to have a look in terms of load balancing. probly your first shift is overstaffed , you need to transfer some people from 1st shift to production so that production,1st shift and 2 shift all work in sync.
    and yes your overproduction is it profitable as compared to the cost of Overtime and extra loading.
    If yes then should not worry unless extra loading is a issue
