Abstract

Rapscallion Brewery, located in Sturbridge, Massachusetts is interested in implementing a canning system into their current business operations. The goal of this Major Qualifying Project was to determine the best fit canning system that Rapscallion should invest in based on their current needs, available resources, and demand. In order to evaluate whether Rapscallion should outsource to a mobile canning company, or purchase their own equipment, we focused on using three different methods to analyze each canning option. These methods included forecasting, Arena Simulation Software, and a cost analysis. These different forms of analyses allowed us to recommend that Rapscallion should invest in the WGC – 100 beer canning system.
