Mutmainah, Dimas Eko Saputra



defects of package pouch, design by experiment, Taguchi method.



This research was conducted to determine what factors are very influential on the defects of pouch packaged cooking oil products and design the best input level with the result that can reduce defects of pouch packaged cooking oil. Actual data shows average of defects of pouch packaged during january to march 2018 produced as much 4,11 %. This research with experiment Taguchi method. Involve controlled and uncontrolled factors. The controlled factors is temperature heater sealing with 3 levels (126°C, 130°C, and 134°C), pressure air vaccum with 2 levels (5 bars and 6 bars), conveyor speed with 2 levels (900 rpm and 950 rpm), machine speed with 2 levels (35 rpm and 40 rpm), and packaging material with 2 levels (15 gr and 20 gr). With determination the level of each factor this research conducted 48 times with one-time iteration and data was taken by number of defects produced during the production process. The Result of analysis data shows that from above five factors controlled and interaction among five factors significant react to process produced cooking oil into pouch package. The best levels combination measure by smallest defects parameter that produced production process and statistic test (in particular S/N ratio) is temperature heater sealing 126 °C, pressure air vaccum 5 bars, conveyor speed 900 rpm, machine speed 35 rpm, and packaging material 15 gr can reduce defects with average from 4,11 % to 2,96 % (decrease about 1,15 %).
