This can be done by using the following formula: Minimum of Workstations = Σ for Task i Cycle time To find Cycle time the following formula is used: Cycle Time = Production Time Available Per Day Units Required Per Day Based on the information provided by Alistair Wu of a 40 hour work week and 6 work boots per hour we can conclude that the cycle time is 10 minutes per unit (480 minutes per day / 48 work boots per day). With that being said using the formula above, we can conclude that the minimum number of workstations required for the work boot assembly line is 4.6 or 5 stations. Reducing the number of stations from 8 to 5 would provide a drastic improvement in proficiency from 57.5% up to 92%. To verify my results and determine how the stations should be arranged I used POM for Windows Assembly Line Balancing Module. The results from POM are attached.
c. Solve the equation. Show your work. d. Find the number of minutes that Allegra went over the time that the plan allows. Answer: a. Variable = v=how many minutes she over used… b. T=total money spent a month t=55m+.10v m=1 c. 58.50-55=3.50 3.50/.10=35 v=35 d. 35 minutes (6 points) |Score | | | 3.
In the case of COPD patients, proper nutrition can help reduce carbon dioxide levels and improve breathing. It is important to focus on the percentages of total carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that the patient is consuming to see how their diet composition impacts their R.Q. Basically that means, following metabolism, in
The lead times for the components are bracket (1 week), base (1 week), spring (1 week), clamp (1 week), housing (2 weeks), handle (1 week), casting (3 weeks), bearing (1 week), and shaft (1 week). a) Prepare the time-phased product structure for the bracket. b) In what week do you need
1. How long will it take for you to fill a rush order ? If we assume that this order is for one dozen cookies, we will need to do the following : According to table illustrated above, we will need the minimum of 26 minutes to an order. 2. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night?
The company has 60 hours available each week for molding. After the tiles are molded they are baked in a kiln: 0.27 hour for a batch of 100 larger tiles and 0.58 hour for a batch of l00 smaller tiles. The company has 105 hours available each week for baking. After baking, the tiles are either colored or patterned and glazed. This process takes 0.16 hour for a batch of 100 larger tiles and 0.20 hour for a batch of 100 smaller tiles.
(Assume that 30 operations would still be performed each day.) How would this affect the utilization of the bed capacity? Is this capacity sufficient for the additional patients? 3. Now look at the effect of increasing the number of beds by 50 percent.
Decision Analysis Tool A precedence diagram (shown below) helps us to understand which tasks in the production of the work boot have predecessors. Looking at logical procedures to balance efficiencies in the assembly line process I used assembly line balancing as the analysis tool. The efficiency allocated is 92% when the work boot assembly is broken down to 5 work cells with the longest cycle time of any work cell being 10
