Abstract:As there is a declining trend in the beer market, Heineken Nederland Supply (HNS) needs to increase the innovation rate. Many markets introduce new pack types, designs, label changes etc. This results in a growing number of changeovers on the packaging lines. To minimize the impact of the increasing trend of changeovers, the flexibility of the lines must increase. Therefore the management of Heineken Zoeterwoude asked for an investigation of the flexibility on the lines. In order to execute a successful research we focused this investigation to the ‘One way bottle lines’.
