Task 3 + 4 Introduction and Background Information I have chosen Cadbury's as my manufacturing organisation. Cadbury's was first opened as a little shop in 1824, which sold tea, coffee, mustard, coca and drinking chocolate.

All this is because of computers and scientists. Process which are used in Cadbury's Factories The Computers & Electronics: The computer monitors recognises the production line for errors, this reduces labour costs and is more accurate. The electronics are used to check the temperature at which the chocolate is kept. Engineers: To check all the computers are working to the standards and to fix the computers that aren't functioning properly. This uses Physics.

The machines before were not tested regularly, in fact, they were only tested once every year. Not many people where up to standards with "Health and Safety", whereas now everyone knows just in case a member of staff may be ill and someone has to take over. Also there was no white uniform and women were allowed to keep long hair and long nails but now the modifications have changed and the white uniform is a must for hygienic purposes and for the safety of the consumers. There weren't many setbacks for Thames Water because they always have to be alert when supplying to water. Any sort of contamination would cost them severely and will affect millions of homes. Cadbury in the Market Today: Cadbury's is the leading UK chocolate confectionery market with thirteen brands in the top thirty. This is eight more than anyone else!
