Abstract

The main goal of this project was to provide the Beijing plant of Pacific Can with a more cost-effective, energy-efficient alternative for drying their cans prior to paint coating. We analyzed the current drying process and conducted experiments to determine the feasibility of our proposed alternatives. Methods used include statistical analysis, time-study, seven-step process improvement, and cost-benefit analysis. We also took into consideration the potential for expansion of our alternatives to other facility locations of Pacific Can.
