Abstract

The present format is an investigation of the principal problems found at the present time at a Mexican Recycling factory. Said problems were analyzed and the ones with greater urgency to be solved or with greater negative impact were selected. These selected problems were analyzed, measured and calculated to find the optimal solution or the best recommendation possible. A change in the current layout was done with the objective of optimizing the resources of the plant as decreasing costs and errors that create an inefficient productivity inside the plant. This recommendations in the accommodation will be replicable in the other plants the company has around the Mexican Republic
