Scheduling system for nutra manufacturing
This capstone project focused on Nutra's manufacturing scheduling system. Originally there were numerous scheduling tools in place for the softgel, hardshell and tablet manufacturing processes. After identifying users, conducting surveys, and generating metrics, we came to understand that the new system needed to be automated, easy to use, standardized, and capable of meeting due dates. The team then developed an initial scheduling solution. Following this, multiple usability tests were conducted to help refine and improve the solution. The final solution reduced the amount of time and manual input it took to create a manufacturing schedule and has the potential to be scaled across all departments.
