This project was carried out in order to complete the requirements of the Master of Engineering Management degree at the University of Canterbury. The project objective was to examine the reasons for Attainment to Plan (ATP) misses at the Meadow Fresh Christchurch plant, specifically the Fresh Beverages division. ATP is a measure of how closely the production team follows the daily packing plan, and is a site Key Performance Indicator (KPI). This report describes the action plans that were developed to decrease the number of misses to the target value, an analysis of the success of these plans, and recommendations which were made around the purchase of plant equipment in order to further improve the ATP results.
