3  Improve working conditions at palm plantations  Improve last year’s mechanism  Define Phase:  Define Phase: Gave the areas of improvement  Measure Phase:  Measure Phase: Tests current mechanism in those areas of improvement INTRODUCTION 3 Presentation AgendaIntroductionBackground Research Presenter: Maurice Derius

4  Palm oil is the 2 nd most consumed oil in the world after soybean oil  Malaysia is the 2 nd largest producer of palm oil after Indonesia  Malaysia has less strict laws on palm oil plantations than Indonesia BACKGROUND RESEARCH 4 IntroductionBackground ResearchRecap of the Define Phase Presenter: Chris Chiros

5 BACKGROUND RESEARCH 5 IntroductionBackground ResearchRecap of the Define Phase Presenter: Chris Chiros Produces 4.08 tons of palm oil and palm kernel oil per hectare per year [2]

6 RECAP OF THE DEFINE PHASE 6 Background ResearchRecap of the Define PhaseProcess Improvement Presenter: Chris Chiros  Objective:  Objective: Create a safe, reliable, inexpensive and competitive device to retrieve palm fruit.  Budget:  Budget: $2,  Improvements:  Pulley System  Materials  Mobility  Automation
