Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training program will elaborate factors affecting the target weight decision and help determine the tolerable risks of under-filling and the costs of over-filling. Attendees will gain an understanding of process stability and process capability concepts and methods for process optimization.

Why Should You Attend:

In order to maximize profitability while complying with government regulations regarding net package contents, food manufacturers and packagers must achieve an optimal balance. Consistent overfilling to minimize risk is inefficient and sacrifices profitability, while aggressive filling practices result in significant risks of non-compliance with net contents regulations leading to potential penalties, loss of reputation, and impaired customer relations. Statistical process control and process capability methods may be utilized to determine optimal targets for product fill weights or volumes for a given process. Subsequent focused efforts to minimize variation will allow the target to be further optimized, resulting in less waste without compromising risk.

This webinar will illustrate the use of statistical process control and process capability methods for optimizing product target weights given the inherent tradeoffs between minimizing overfills and minimizing risks of non-compliance to government regulations. This webinar will also briefly discuss methods for reducing excessive variability which may be necessary to achieve optimal results.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand factors affecting the target weight decision
  • Determine the tolerable risks of under-filling and the costs of over-filling
  • Estimate the proportion of non-conforming product
  • Understand process stability and process capability concepts
  • Determine and justify targets for product weights
  • Understand methods for process optimization

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • U.S. regulatory requirements for net contents of foods (NIST Handbook 133)
  • Estimating the risk of non-compliance
  • Assessing process stability
  • Process capability
  • Z values and proportion non-conforming
  • Determining target weights
  • Process optimization

Who Will Benefit:

  • Manufacturing Personnel
  • Quality and Process Engineers
  • Plant Operations Personnel
  • Plant Management
  • Quality Management
  • Personnel utilizing data to make decisions and improve processes
