Powell Logging Company - Production Optimization

  1. 1. Powell Products<br />Presented by, <br />Iron MBA’s<br />Net, Velvet, Christopher<br />
  2. 2. Overview<br />Harvested Agreements:<br /><ul><li> Oak logs = 18,000 feet
  3. 3. Pine logs = 16,000 feet</li></ul>Machine Capacity:<br /><ul><li> Stripping machine = 60 hours per week
  4. 4. Cutting machine = 40 hours per week</li></li></ul><li>Goal and Recommendation:<br />“The optimal production plan that achieves the highest contribution.”<br />No unused time on both machines! <br />Highest Contribution!<br />
  5. 5. Limitations<br /><ul><li> Pine Wood
  6. 6. Stripping of Pine Wood
  7. 7. Cutting Machine</li></li></ul><li>Limitations: Pine vs. Oak<br />Pine Wood:<br /><ul><li> Bark has more resin (sap) making it harder to strip
  8. 8. Softwood on interior, it lacks pores that transport more water, therefore it is easier to cut</li></ul>Oak Wood:<br /><ul><li> Hardwood
  9. 9. Has pores, so it has greater water transportation throughout the wood
  10. 10. More consistent from bark to interior – same amount of time to cut and strip </li></li></ul><li>Limitations: Stripping Pine<br /><ul><li>Bottleneck in stripping pine
  11. 11. Stripping takes longer time than cutting process, therefore, cutting machine is not being productive 2/3 of the time
  12. 12. Backlogged pine in stripping process</li></li></ul><li>Limitations: Cutting Machine<br /><ul><li>Inefficient cutting machine
  13. 13. Needs more maintenance and has less production capacity</li></li></ul><li>Questions?<br />
