In order to maximize profitability while complying with government regulations regarding net package contents, food manufacturers and packagers must achieve an optimal balance. Consistent overfilling to minimize risk is inefficient and sacrifices profitability, while aggressive filling practices result in significant risks of non-compliance with net contents regulations leading to potential penalties, loss of reputation, and impaired customer relations. Statistical process control and process capability methods may be utilized to determine optimal targets for product fill weights or volumes for a given process. Subsequent focused efforts to minimize variation will allow the target to be further optimized, resulting in less waste without compromising risk.
Join expert speaker Steven Wachs in this webinar that illustrates the use of Statistical Process Control and Process Capability methods for optimizing product target weights while minimizing overfills and risks of non-compliance to government regulations. This webinar will also briefly discuss methods for reducing excessive variability which may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
