Description Nowadays, the growing popularity of flexible pouch-type containers is a palpable reality, marking a trend that clearly stands out in food production processes, and especially in canned tuna, due to its great versatility, in addition to the numerous advantages vs. rigid packaging, like glass or cans. Among these advantages, the main factor is a lower cost of production and therefore more comfortable profit margins. For this reason, a project has been considered to determine the feasibility of optimizing the process of making pouch at the Fishcorp company. S.A., determining different aspects that must be considered if the implementation is feasible. Within the technical analysis, the restrictions that limited the growth and fluidity of the process are determined, and through the application of proprietary process engineering methodologies, improvements are identified that allow the monitoring of results with real production information and positive variations in terms of productivity and profitability in the process.
Keywords: flexible packaging, pouch, Fishcorp. S.A, processes, productivity, profitability.
En la actualidad es una realidad palpable la creciente popularidad de los envases flexibles tipo pouch, marcando una tendencia que destaca claramente en los procesos de producción alimenticia, y de manera especial en las conservas de atún, por su gran versatilidad, además de las numerosas ventajas frente a envases rígidos, como vidrio o latas. Entre estas ventajas destaca como principal factor un menor costo de producción y por ende márgenes de ganancia más holgados. Por esta razón se ha considerado realizar un proyecto en el cual se determine la factibilidad de optimizar el proceso de elaboración de pouch en la empresa Fishcorp. S.A, determinando diferentes aspectos que deberán ser considerados de resultar factible la implantación. Dentro del análisis técnico se determinan las restricciones que limitaban el crecimiento y fluidez del proceso, y mediante la aplicación de metodologías propias de ingeniería de procesos se identifica mejoras, que permitan el seguimiento de resultados con información real de producción y las variaciones positivas en términos de productividad y rentabilidad en el proceso.
