Fresh ideas food for thought at Burra
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.
