DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Setting Benchmarks

On the last canning day, optimism ran high with every team in the field and factory aiming to meet annual targets and set new benchmarks for success for the years ahead. Coming from a team of achievers, hard work has more than paid off. The last trucks moving out of the Plantation drove the year's total cannery fruit delivery to 617,000 tons, quite a leap from 580,000 tons delivered a full decade earlier (2000). Enhanced farm practices introduced by the Plantation team under Operations Director Andre Jaranilla have raised fruit quality and volume.

At the Cannery, under Cannery Head Frank Molas, improved technologies and greater productivity and cost efficiencies saw milestones - 18 million cases processed at a higher recovery rate. The team attained total pineapple recovery of 39.72 common cases per ton (ccs/ton). This is the Cannery's highest total recovery since December 2014, which also set new records, including the highest slice recovery since August 2014; the highest juice recovery since February 2014; and the highest production for fruits in plastic cup and in Stand-up Pouch (SUP).

As the last fruits were packed, an ocean-plying vessel docked at a nearby seaport opened its cargo hold for the last load of container vans packed with cased-up products. Total shipment at nearly 17 million cases of processed products has set new benchmarks for our domestic and export markets. As the ship blew its horn and left port, Mindanao workers and service providers marked the occasion as they eagerly lined up for free lunch servings at the Plantation and Cannery. Two days later, on the last day of the year, the Fresh Fruit Packing Team led by Sr. Mgr. Bobby Villanoy and S16 Operations Technical Head Alejandro Chavarria cased up the year's last cartons of fruit. Refrigerated vans carrying these cartons rolled out of Camp JMC for the long drive to ports in Davao and Cagayan de Oro. By year-end, 2.6 million cartons of fresh fruit had been shipped worldwide.

Mindanao Operations Group Head Manny Nisperos thanked all Mindanao workers and service providers for their support in attaining key targets. He summed up the team's performance as “a dress rehearsal,” a preview of things to come as we prepare for more challenges to sustain our business and grow opportunities for our families and community. This early, everyone knows only a lot of hard work can make this happen.

Last fruit haul takes road to cannery and last shipment gets dockside cheers from Mindanao senior executives Bong Cabanas, Nixon A lay, Allan Salcedo, Rufo Labis, Benjie Nacua, Manny Santiago, Ed Sena, Bobby Villanay, Boboy Caballero, Andy Gutierrez, Ben Mabanta, Teng Acut, Chesed Sison, Boy Estrada, Armin Narciso, Mae Linaac, Manny Santiago; Haide Guangco and Ann Pozon; at the cannery fruit receiving station, Cannery Operations Group Head Frank Molas, DMPL Group COO Cito Alejandro, Mindanao Operations Group Head Manny Nisperos and Plantation Operations Group Head Bunnie Jaranilla; and Plantation team meets up with Cannery team at the receiving station.

Celebrating wins, Plantation and Cannery workers and service providers enjoy free lunch servings at mess halls.

Join our journey to manufacturing excellence

In line with our Company's commitment towards Total Customer Satisfaction, Team Cannery takes the road to operational excellence and builds a unique edge - amid tough competition, high production costs and a slow global economy. With the full support of Top Management, a culture building program is being launched with TPM and 5 'S' as the driving force towards a world-class Cannery.

Team Cannery led by Operations Director Frank Molas takes the first steps to an exciting journey of learning, to awaken everyone's deep sense of involvement in the cannery's total production system. The road the Team has chosen for this new journey to manufacturing excellence is a program called Total Productive Maintenance or TPM. Production frontliners can now trek a new path, leave behind a passive or 'piecemeal' outlook, and take on broader responsibilities in a working environment that nurtures champions.

Investing in this program opens doors of opportunities to workers who aspire to attain full potential, build long-term careers with the Company, and ensure the future of their families. It’s sole requisite: a burning desire to learn one's way to the next level.

Core Group organized and trained, TPM Consultant Joylan Nadal briefs the Cannery Management Team on building a new TPM culture. A Core Group leads implementation of this program. Supervisors who were trained, serve as resource persons during orientation seminars for production workers.

Quantum gains in shaping the future. This program is not just a set of skills or competencies. This program will help us change the culture of the cannery, emulating values on continuous improvement and the involvement of our workers - whether they are high, middle or low in the organization - in forwarding a culture of continuous improvement. I urge everyone to absorb, master and apply these principles. Because all of these will give us quantum gains in shaping the future.

What is TPM?

TPM stands for Total Productive Maintenance. It is a maintenance process developed for improving productivity by making processes more reliable and less wasteful. The foundation of TPM is 5S. 5S is a productivity program (workplace organization) adopted from 5 Japanese words starting with the letter “S”.

TPM = Preventive Concept + ZERO Orientation + Total Employee Involvement

ZERO DEFECT/WASTE, ZERO BREAKDOWN, ZERO ACCIDENT

To support this journey, a core group was formed composed of representatives from all areas of the Cannery. The group spearheads efforts to promote and grow a new culture, formulate policies, implement guidelines, and track progress as Team Cannery journeys towards operational excellence.

TPM Core Group Member and Cannery Systems Manager Benjie Arsua shares learning tips.

1. Be open to new ideas.
