Abstract:To stay ahead of the competition on the competitive beer market, Heineken needs to increase efficiency continuously. Mainly, this means producing more in the same time, preferably with fewer resources than currently, to save costs and remain competitive in industry. One of the packaging lines for which this holds is line 51 of the Heineken brewery in Zoeterwoude, which fills and packages bottles of the Heineken brand for the USA market. The current performance of this line is below the target stated by management, and therefore improvements are necessary. Therefore, the objective of this research is to determine how the operational performance of packaging line 51 can be improved. As safety and quality are really important, the research is bounded by some constraints. This leads to the research question: How can the performance of packaging line 51 of the Heineken Brewery in Zoeterwoude be improved, while taking into account the quality and safety regulations?
