Author: Viriyapituk, Tunyarut
Abstract: This study is focused on the cost justification of the different levels of packaging line automation: manual, semi-automatic, and fully automatic of canned chunk pineapple in syrup which is packed in #10 cans. The packaging line criteria and the line designs are established. The suitable machines and the labor input for each step of the packaging line are indicated. In addition, the total machine cost and the total labor input for each level of packaging line automation are shown and compared. As a result, in Thailand, the manual packaging line shows the lowest production cost However, in the US, the fully automatic line results in the lowest production cost The result of the study will aid a manufacturer in making a decision on the appropriate level of packaging line automation, the location of the plant, and the machine selection.
