Fresh ideas food for thought at Burra

Dairy News Australia - - GENERATION NEXT -

As part of the 2017 Monash In­dus­try Team Ini­tia­tive (MITI), stu­dents Meghna Lahiri and Prathamesh Dukhande, un­der­took a busi­ness process anal­y­sis at Burra Foods, Kor­rum­burra to de­ter­mine mod­i­fi­ca­tions that would im­prove pro­duc­tion per­for­mance.

The Monash stu­dents fo­cused on analysing the ar­chiv­ing pro­cesses, elec­tronic data trans­fer sys­tem and food prep map­ping meth­ods.

The stu­dents pro­posed the use of a doc­u­ment man­age­ment sys­tem, the im­ple­men­ta­tion of a weigh­bridge and the in­stal­la­tion of fac­tory in­te­gra­tion.

Dur­ing their place­ment, Meghna and Prathamesh also iden­ti­fied that the im­ple­men­ta­tion of RF scan­ners would au­to­mate the food prep process and en­sure greater ef­fi­ciency, in terms of plan­ning, pack­ag­ing, trans­port and lo­gis­tics.

Anal­y­sis of the cur­rent elec­tronic in­bound and out­bound data trans­fer at Burra Foods was also a fo­cus, par­tic­u­larly in re­gard to the re­duc­tion of man­ual data en­try and best prac­tices for ware­house man­age­ment.
