Abstract

World’s Finest Chocolate (WFC) is currently hand stacking each case of chocolate coming off its production lines onto pallets. This is leading to strain and potential injuries on employee’s backs and hands, as well as improper stacking that leads to less than sturdy pallet loads. This can result in employee recovery time off and medical bills. Also may lead to poor quality of stacking causing warehouse and shipping damage. Other companies have decided to utilize automatic palletizers to alleviate this issue. This is the current plan of action we are researching and proposing.
