ABSTRACT
This paper explicitly gives the details of the design of an integrated process plant for poundo yamproduction. The paper covers the deign analysis of each machine involved in the productionprocess of the process plant. Viz a viz peeling and slicing machine; parboiling machine; conveyor;sieving machine; drying machine and grinding machine. It explained the material required for thefabrication of each part of the machines used in the process plant and the cost analysis. Asimulation was done to confirm the workability of the design for fabrication purpose. The plant hasa capacity of converting 23tubers of yam(discorea alata) into 250Kg of poundo yam in 7hrs.
