Experimental determination and evaluation of ten (10) different production lines producing different brands and sizes of alcohol beverages was carried out on each of the lines according to the standard operating procedures (SOP) of the machine operation, processes and quality inspection standard. Operation was carried out for 2 shifts of 12hours each for 26 days in the month of September, 27 days in October, and 25 days each for the month of November and December. The set target for each of the lines were used as critical control limit for each line, monthly operation and the monthly output for each line was recorded by converging the result of the daily production for each month. The result from the plot revealed that line 10 performed better than every other line in September and October with average output per hour of 126.6 cases and 106.9 cases respectively, while line 9 performed better in the month of November with an average output per hour of 1113 cases followed by line 8 with an average output per hour of 108.8 cases in December. The experimental analysis had really revealed the reasons behind the poor performances of each line for each month hence there is need for performance improvement for increased productivity.
