I have engineers, technicians, chemists, supervisors and laborers working under me. My task is to approve of the right formula for each thing produced to start with. I instruct the engineers taking care of boiler and freezer maintenance to variously monitor the atmosphere for each production function. The supervisors and foremen report faults, if any to me. Since this factory runs each day of the year the inventory also has to be procured and maintained in a safe and proper condition. The perishable goods produced are to be stored in hygienic conditions under the right temperature.
Task 3 is the most important because faulty raw materials in turn produce low quality products. The freshness, durability, microbial content, right amount of lipids and other contents of raw milk decide the right taste that will be derived from the end produce.
Task 4 becomes easy once proper planning has been done beforehand. It requires a lot more teamwork with the technicians and engineers involved. The maintenance of machinery on a regular basis is of utmost importance as even a small hitch can affect the entire process.
Task 5 is very important as the end product consumed by consumers of all age groups needs to be of excellent quality. Quality can never be compromised especially in the case of perishable goods. The shelf life of milk, butter and cheese is printed on the packs to intimate the users of safe usage. Complaints if any, received are seriously considered and errors eliminated.
Task 6 is an easy one but also involves answering to the top management on the production done daily/weekly or monthly.
