Abstract :

In this research study, the process layout for dehydration of fruits and vegetables processing plant was examined. Flexsim was used to perform simulation runs and optimization alternatives on production lines were drawn, with special emphasis on tomatoes. The simulation was done on the basis of flow chart of the processing of dehydrated fruit and vegetables. Based on the analysis of the simulation data, the study identified the bottlenecks in processing and proffer alternative solutions for inproved and optimal output respectively.
