Chapter 3 TECHNICAL STUDY This chapter evaluates whether the project is technically feasible by assessing its physical and

manpower requirements. It specifically contains the information about the product, the raw materials needed, direct labor requirements, the plant layout, production, manufacturing overhead and the process. 3.1 Objectives of the Study To determine the description and uses of the product. To determine the required equipment and kitchen

utensils, its cost and availability. To determine the strategic plant location, plant site and layout of the proposed business. To determine the cost raw materials needed and its availability. To determine the cost and needed direct labor

qualifications of the proposed business. 3.2 Product The proposed product will be somewhat similar will the to the

existing similar products but the difference innovation and packaging. One innovation is

be on the presence of

malungay, a plant that has a powerhouse of important nutrients needed by our body like Calcium, Phosphorus, and Iron, Vitamin A, niacin, and Vitamin C etc. Another is that table sugar was replaced by coconut sugar, derived from the coconut palm tree and is touted as being more nutritious and lower on the glycaemic index than table or cane sugar. The glycaemic index (GI) is a measure of how quickly foods raise blood sugar levels. Glucose is given a GI of 100 and if a food has a GI of 50, then it raises blood sugar half as much as pure glucose. The packaging of the product is also distinct because it uses versatile

packaging in the form of a round-transparent container that is handy, useful and more sealable compared to the cellophane type. The product will also be made with different shapes to attract more customers especially the younger ones. 3.2.1 Description of the Product The product Corioso is a cookie-like food with varieties of shapes and is considered as one of the delicacies in Samar. The product is packed in rectangular-shaped transparent

cellophane with the brand name NutriMade Corioso de Malungay printed over a piece of sticker paper. It has a taste partly similar to a cookie and is distinct because of the presence of Malungay leaves and coconut sugar. The researchers applied

innovation over the product to make it consumable in the market and to help consumers in maintaining their health. 3.2.2 Uses of the product The proposed product will serves as breakfast to those who have no time to prepare the food for breakfast. It will also be a perfect snack in offices, schools, cafeterias, households, and terminals.It is also a perfect pasalubong because it is one of the delicacies in Samar. Earlier stated, the product will help to boost the consumers overall health because malungay is one of its active ingredients and could avoid them from disease such as diabetes as it contains coconut sugar instead of table sugar. In addition, the business has to meet all the legal

requirements like permits and taxes imposed by the government. Thus, this will also help the province to improve its economy. 3.3 Manufacturing Process The proponents decided to have a quicker but careful and detailed manufacturing process with the aid of equipment and kitchen utensils. The procedures will be done under quality

control ensuring that the product that will be produced will satisfy the demand of consumers.

3.3.1 Description of the process Corioso baking is relatively similar to the process of

baking cookies. The difference is that corioso baking is more intricate because it has to follow the procedures thoroughly; otherwise the product will not be as perfect. Corioso Baking is a food cooking method that uses prolonged dry heat by convection, rather than by thermal radiation, normally in an oven. The Procedures and methods of baking corioso are as follows: 1. Prepare first milk, grind all the necessary ingredients (flour, malungay leaves, eggs, sugar, butter,

margarine, baking powder), equipment and utensils. 2. Preheat the oven to 2500C. 3. Sift flour, and then set aside. Add baking powder. 4. Cream butter and margarine in a separate bowl. Add coconut sugar, evaporated milk, egg yolks, flour

mixture, and malungay. 5. Mix all with hands and knead, and roll the dough on the table using rolling pin. 6. Weigh the dough into 9.26 grams. Roll and mould into desire shapes and bake for about 15 minutes. 7. Using a spatula, lift corioso off and place onto a cooling rack. Let cool for about 5 more minutes. 8. The corioso are now ready for packaging.

Baking for about 15 minutes

Packaging, storing and selling to the retailers 3.3.2 Alternative Process Considered The production involves both hand-made and mechanical process. However, it can also be made under mechanical

process alone wherein machineries do the entire task, but this could be very expensive so the researchers considered the process otherwise.

3.4 Production Schedule Pieces/ Units Produced Year 1 2014 Production Daily (in packs) 45 1,170 14,040 50 1,300 15,600 Monthly Annually Daily Monthly Annually Year 2 2015

The business will operate 26 days in a month and 312 days in a year because it excludes Sundays and holidays. The estimated daily packs to be manufactured are 45 packs a day to come up with the annual production of 14,040 packs in 2014. In the next year, the estimated daily packs to be manufactured will grow to 50 packs garnering to about 15,600 packs annually. 3.5 Equipment and Kitchen Utensils

Detailed Map of Catbalogan City

3.6 Small Plant Location

The proposed plant is located at Legaspi Avenue, Brgy. O8, Catbalogan City. The proponents pick this location because the supplier of raw materials is just a few meters away from the site and its channel of distribution; some are located near this place. The roads are also accessible to this place so that

delivery can be easily done.

3.7 Plant Layout

The plant is composed of six product storage area,

parts namely the finished storage area, packing


area, processing area, cooking area, and waste storage area. The finished product storage area is the place where the sealed boxes containing the finished products are stored. The equipment area is where the tools or equipment used are kept. Packing area consists of a table wherein packing of the products is done. The processing area is the place where raw materials/ingredients are being processed. Cooking area is the place where you find the oven and other kitchen utensils. The waste storage area is where you find cleaning materials and trash cans being partly isolated from the other area.
