Production is the most important and major activity of a production system. It may relate to goods used in various industries, as well as in agriculture or horticulture. The aim of this article is to analyse a selected production process and to propose several technical and organisational changes within the process of producing cucumbers in greenhouses in the form of a conceptual design. The scope of the article includes analysis and presentation of the current state of the selected production system, presentation of the modification project, as well as the possible impact of the proposed changes on the process under analysis. The subject of analysis herein is the greenhouse equipment, the production process organisation, technical facilities, production quality system functioning, proposition of changes and their effect on production. The analysis and modifications involved the production of cucumbers in greenhouses and their further preparation for sales, i.e. planting, harvesting, loading, segregating, weighing, packing and greenhouse liquidation. The article presents technical and organisational changes related with: the company’s technological facilities, space organisation in the production hall, recordkeeping of hours worked, as well as the number of employees. The aforementioned modifications will effect in inter alia: reduced working time, elimination of redundant stoppages and modernisation of technological facilities.
