Welcome to P10712: Wegmans 2 Process Improvement
|Project Summary||Project Information|
Wegmans is a private, family-owned corporation that operates approximately 47 supermarkets, with their headquarters in Rochester, NY. In 1950, the son of the founders of Wegmans, Robert Wegman became president of Wegmans stores, and the company began to invest in businesses that would enhance its central focus. Wegman acquired an egg farm and developed an on-site meat processing center and a central bakery. The central bakery is still in the same location, while the Meat Process Center (CIC) has recently moved.
The aim of this MSD project is to improve the Cheesecake Bakery Process in the Central Bakery Facility in Rochester, NY. The central bakery provides the baked goods for all the Wegmans stores. Specifically, the cheesecake process has some process problems, as well as a need for updated techniques to more efficiently make the cheesecake.
Improving the Cheesecake making process and providing the workers with more ergonomically correct and efficient methods will increase throughput of the cheesecakes. This will enable Wegmans to deliver the product to the customer in the most cost effective way.
