dc.description.abstract This report documents the work that was conducted for the Business Optimisation of the Ya Rena Precast Plant. The project focuses on four different areas where improvement could be made namely the storing of production information, production planning, material requirement planning & production and onsite ergonomics. To address the issues at hand the following items were developed; a Microsoft Access Database system to aid in data capturing, a production planning algorithm which is executed using LINGO and interfaces with the Access Database, an ARENA Simulation of the block forming production line and recommendation over onsite ergonomics including relevant aids and worker moral improvement suggestions. The project aims at empowering the onsite manager with the required tools which would enable him/her to make more informed decisions on the day to day running of the plant. A user manual has been attached to the project which clearly explains how each tool is to be used. en_US
