Abstract:The company at which this research is completed is Eshuis. It is a printing company that among other labels produces shrink sleeves. These are a specific type of product label. The problem at Eshuis is the excessive production waste generated during the manufacturing of shrink sleeves. This waste can be categorized as avoidable and unavoidable. In 2021 and 2022, the total production waste has increased significantly. Eshuis identified that a huge portion of this waste is avoidable. The goal for the future is to reduce the amount of avoidable production waste. Multiple factors contribute to the high volume of unused shrink sleeves and plastic, leading To analyse the waste produced at the production line, observation data is used to get insight of the various waste types and their corresponding quantities. Because the corresponding machine in the first stage of the production line is being replaced soon, this study focuses on the post-processing stages of the production process.
