Nationwide Cranberry Cooperative Case is a study made by the Harvard Business University about a process of warehousing in the delivery and arriving of cranberry into a manufacturing in the warehouse. Countrywide Cranberry Supportive was a business formed and owned simply by growers of cranberries to process and markets their particular berries. The handling of process fresh fruit RP1 was highly mechanized. The process could be classified in to several businesses; receiving and testing, dumping, temporary possessing, destroying, dechaffing, drying separation and bulking and bagging. The objective of the entire process was going to gather mass berries and prepare them for safe-keeping and control into iced fresh fruits, sauce, and juice.

In the case, there is a capacity for drying method only 600 barrel each hour and convenience of the damp bin is also 3200 clip or barrel per hour.

Also, insufficiency of the damp bin storage capacity makes vehicle drivers to wait until the fruits are unloaded. Because of this issue, the overtime, however, cost were still uncontrollable in the fall, that is the peak time, and the growers continue to be upset that their trucks and drivers had to dedicate much time to get waiting to unload procedure fruit into the receiving herb. 1 . In the present flow from the process, identify the logjam areas. What recommendations, both short-term and long-term, might you make to resolve the logjam problem? As I mentioned earlier, the logjam area of the case is the short capacity of dryer and that of the rainy bin. Specifically, in the optimum, approximately nineteen, 000 barrel or clip of the cherries arrives to the plant in a day and 70 percent of those, 13, 300 barrels, are rainy and needed to be dried.
