This project’s objective was to reduce the cost of palm oil’s loose fruits (LF) handling in harvesting processes. Based on the group’s findings, the lack of efficiency in the segregator machine was found as one of the major issues that led to the high cost in the LF-handling process, as well as causing contamination of some loose fruits and the delay in other field maintenance activities.
Using IDOV methodology and various LSS techniques and approach, leveraging tools like fishbone diagram, cause and effect matrix, FMEA, gemba, Pugh matrix, pay-off matrix, scamper, quality function deployment, force field analysis, and decision-making analysis resulted in reducing the cost of handling loose fruit by 49 percent. The project had a tangible savings of more than $56,000 in LF/MT handling cost as a result of eliminating one process step, along with the nontangible benefits such as reduction of carbon footprint by 80 percent and improving employees’ ergonomics during the process, which, by doing so, upheld the organization’s triple bottom line sustainability policy.
