According to “X Hydroponic Farm” facilities, a 40 x 60 square feet farm, with a capacity of producing 750 plants weekly; and actual production rate of 250 plants a week, is expecting a demand increase of approximately 60%. However, no capital or initial investment is available. Therefore, actual harvest process needs to be analyzed in order to identify significant factors that could impact productivity, maximize its business capacity and produce the new demand consistently. Therefore, a DMADV (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify) methodology was followed during the process to achieve goals and customer satisfaction.
