This report, prepared for Stonyfield Farm, was focused on identifying work process standards for the reduction of fruit and flavor usage on the 6 oz yogurt cup assembly lines during the fruit and flavor changeover process. A series of interviews, observations, literary research and analysis, led to the identification of a standard quantity of allowable usage to be generated from the fruit changeover process. Additionally, analysis on the feasibility of upgrading the current fruit dosing system was performed.
