Food packaging industry is competitive in nature, with growth driven by the increasing new ... product introductions to keep the food fresh for longer periods. In Malaysia, demand for food packaging product continues to rise from native consumers as well as around the world due to its necessity to ensure food safety, minimize food wastage and make the food handling easier. It is therefore necessary for the manufacturers of plastic food packages to do a production planning in order to meet their customer's requirement by producing the right amount of best quality product within a specified time. Today, most sectors have taken the opportunity to adopt simulation-based modelling technique in their operation to improve. productivity efficiency while reaching their business target, especially for the manufacturing industry. Key performance indicators (KPis) such as cycle time and quantity may able to indicate the effectiveness in a manufacturing system. Hence, this work focuses on examining the variable factors influencing the manufacturing system of food packages using a simulationbased modelling approach. The conceptual model of system must be verified to ensure the arrangement accuracy of modules used. Furthermore, the simulation model also needs to be verified and validated to ensure its mimic the real system. Based on the bottleneck analysis from the basic simulation model, the variable factors including quantity ofraw materials, setup time of extruder and setup time of forming system are selected for this study. Statistical design of experiment (DOE) is applied for identifying the effect of factors influencing the production cycle time and quantity of food packages manufacturing system. Plus, analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to assess the main effects of factors and their interactions, whether or not they are significant. In addition, the sensitivity analysis is performed to determine the effect of parameter values changes in factors towards the production cycle time and quantity. Finally, some suggestions on improving the productivity performance of manufacturing system for food packages are proposed in the study. ii
