NCC is a leading organization in the fruit industry and it has failed to find the bottleneck in its Receiving Plant 1. It is faced with the challenge of long queues at RP1 leading to reduced operational efficiency. This paper aims to determine the bottleneck of its operations, calculate overtime, and the time wasted while trucks are waiting to unload the berries. It will further provide recommendations on the best ways to improve the operations at the organization.

- Determine the bottleneck of the operation(s)
Number of dumpers = 5
Average time used = 7.5 minutes
Average = 75 barrels
Therefore, the total dumping capacity,
= 75* 5 *(60) / 7.5
Individual binsí capacity 1-16 = 250
So, total Individual binsí capacity 1-16 = 6*250
= 1,500 barrels
Individual binsí capacity 17-24 = 250
So, Individual binsí capacity 17-24 = 8*250
= 2,000 barrel...
