Using Lean Six Sigma to
Optimize Material Consumption
The rising inflation and reduced profit margins in the food and beverages industry justify the need to optimize the consumption of materials and raw materials representing a considerable portion of the cost structure of these companies. To do this, it is necessary to eliminate causes of variability in these consumptions, standardize the production process, re-engineer the product, and reuse the materials. In this case study of the food industry, find out how reprocessing and raw material non-quality costs can be reduced.
