THE EFFICIENCY IMPROVEMENT OF HANDBAG FORM WATER HYACINTH.
The purpose of this research was to improve the production efficiency of handbag from water Hyacinth. The target groups were 8 manufacturers of handbag from water hyacinth in Udon Thani province, Thailand. The results of the study were as follows: (1) The production efficiency in aspect of production cost was found that when the salt is used in the drying and sulfur baking processes, the cost of handbag producing increased from 31 baht to 41 baht per production cycle. As a result, the production efficiency which is considered from the relationship between inputs and outputs has decreased from 8.07 before adjustment to 6.25 after adjustment. (2) The production efficiency in aspect of the production process was found that When salt is used in the drying process, the drying time can be reduced 1 day from 5 days to 4 days. And when using salt in the sulfur baking process can reduce the time by 1 day, from 2 days to 1 day. (3) The production efficiency in aspect of the satisfaction in the work was found that manufacturers are satisfied with the development of production efficiency. Because the manufacturer can reduce the time it takes to produce by using salt that is easy to find from the area to use in the production process.
