E3 How the production process is planned and monitored, and what this means for productivity and efficiency Cadburys plan the production process by time series, when the chocolate is produced it is monitored accurately to ensure that nothing is wrong with it and it tastes as it should and that it does not have any side effects on customers such as feeling sick after eating the chocolate.
