Technical Analysis of Error Sources on the Egg Packaging Section at DAVA Foods in Skara : using production engineering methods and tools (English)
Abstract [en]

DAVA Foods is a food industry that is one of Sweden's largest companies in the processing and packaging of eggs. The company on which this degree project is carried out in is located in Skara and the work has its main focus on the packaging process of the 24-pack as well as 10-pack egg cartons sold for grocery shopping.The thesis work is to do a technical analysis of sources of errors regarding the egg packaging at DAVA Foods. Students will use various production engineering tools to identify and evaluate improvement proposals on 24-packflow. Students will also identify and evaluate improvement proposals on 10-packflow and identify and evaluate improvement proposals to better alert staff when stops occurs in the process.The PDCA planning tool was used to plan and structure the work once and then a current analysis of flows was made. To gain a better understanding of the current state of the process, observations and interviews were used for data collection. The current position analysis was the base for the work's implementation phase where the root cause tool five why and the fishbone chart diagram was used to find root causes for found problems.The technical analysis of flows resulted in the creation of fourteen improvement proposals, of which eight of these improvement proposals belong to 24-packflow and the remainder to 10-packflows. A pick chart was then used to show which improvement proposals the students believe the companies should implement.The conclusion is that there are two improvement suggestions that should be considered in the 24-packflow. These are to smooth the flow with a new wrapping machine and to extend the conveyor belt, which would reduce wastage that occurs in the process.For 10-packflow, there are two improvements suggestions that should be implemented. These are the implementation of new boxes that have a different lock mechanism than the current ones, and the installation of new light beams to alert the staff the different conditions of the process. A rebuilding of the denester that supplies the flow with the packages, where the task of the denester is to separate the bottom package from the magazine and transport it further to the rotary machine that reverses the package, should also be considered to reduce losses that occur as a result of the packages being damaged in the magazine as the package pile bends when these have been stacked too high.
