Abstract


This research aimed to investigate the satisfactions in current machines using in manufacturing processes and the purchasing factors when food factories plan to purchase new machines. The data was collected by questionnaire survey from 58 food factories in Nakorn Pathom Privince, Thailand. The results indicated that the difference in experience of using machines in manufacturing processes and the size of factories affected the satisfactions in current machines and the purchasing factors for new machines significantly. The experience and size of factories also affect the type of machine and the payment method when buying the new machine. The result should be useful for the businesses related to manufacturing machine such as developer, supplier, distributors, and so on.
