本篇文章讲述的是创新包装，美国广播公司(ABC)表示，自2011年公司计划引入“流包技术”以来，一直在考虑哈尔斯登网站的创新计划。建议采用这种包装技术，以减少产品的浪费。开发和创新分阶段进行，最终在2014年整个工厂至少有6条流水包装线，这也得到了食品加工部门的批准，正如ABC (Parry, et al.， 2010)所说。本篇澳洲英语语言学论文代写文章由澳洲论文通AssignmentPass辅导网整理，供大家参考阅读。
ABC informed that innovation plans for Harlesden site was under consideration since 2011 when the company planned to introduce ‘Flow Wrap Technology’. This packaging technique was suggested to reduce the wastage of the products. The development and innovation took place in different phases and finally in 2014 the entire factory had flow wrap lines at least six lines, which were also approved by the Food Processing Department, as told by ABC (Parry, et al., 2010).
ABC explained that the idea of introducing innovative wrapping came back in 2008 when repairing and maintenance of old machines became impossible. As per the commercial output was concerned, the old technology was not limiting the required pack sizes. Even after the company adopted the process of increasing the pack size, the entire operation was taking long hours, around 4-5 hours to complete. There was a considerable output loss because the facility was manufacturing 2-2.5 tonnes hourly. ABC stated that there was lot of discussions among the production and operations managers about the innovative technology that can improve the output and packaging at the same time. This was a crucial decision as Harlesden is the largest facility in Europe for production of biscuit and 40% of UB’s UK biscuit production comes from this facility (Parry, et al., 2010).
As per the information obtained from ABC, the new wrapping technology was set up in association with Bosch. The pilot facility with flow wrap technology was first positioned in UB’s Manchester site. ABC told that after the setting up of new technology the output of the facility was better and even the manning was reduced. Though it was a trial, it enhanced the efficiency.
One of the utmost advantages to the new innovation is the facilitating of the blockage in the wrapping territory. “This innovation runs persistently without halting,” clarified ABC. The single line increased the output from 55 tonnes daily to 70 tonnes per day. The lines chip away at 3 pins each, and the favourable position is that 2 pins can upheld the full yield of the line, so all changeovers are done on the keep running, without ceasing the procedure, sparing us four hours every time. The facility likewise made impressive reserve funds as far as wasting. A similar line that kept running at 4.5% waste worked well under 2.5% waste since the update as the facility spared millimetre on every pack with the new wrapping. Financially, it’s worth over a million pounds a year. Likewise, the new innovation utilizes airbeds for the rolls to slide down before they drop onto the belt. The sustain frameworks are much gentler than the old line. The facility had made more reserve funds on waste diminishment on the digestive biscuits as opposed to the chocolate digestive related, most likely in light of the fact that the half-covered biscuit is more powerful where it’s held together by the chocolate, told ABC. The company was running at around six for every penny waste and now it’s around two for every penny, clarified ABC (Food Processing, 2015).
