Question details

hot round until the final answer. Round only the final answers to two decimal places if necessary. Question 1 (3+4+4+3 -14 points) Consider the following process. The processing time (sec/unit) is given for each worker. M1 100 40 M2 60 Stage 1 Stage 2 a) Calculate the following design parameters for this process: sec / unit Designed CT for Stage 1 Designed CT for Stage 2 Bottleneck Process Designed CT Process Capacity sec/unit Stage: sec /unit units / hour
b) Customers arrive at this process in the following way: Every 120 secs one customer arrives at M1 starting from time 0 and every 60 secs one customer arrives at M2 starting from time 0. Draw the Gantt chart. Each grid in the following chart represents 10 sec. You can extend the below chart as needed. M1 M2 Bu M3 c) Under the arrival schedule given in (b), calculate the following run-time parameters: Demand Rate Flow Rate Actual Cycle Time WIP for M1 WIP for M2 units/hour sec/unit units units WIP for Buffer WIP for M3 Total WIP Flow time units units units d) Use the total WIP and the flow time calculated in (c). then apply the Littles formula to get the flow rate and the actual CT. Underline the correct answer The flow rate calculated using the Littles law is the same/more/less than the flow rate calculated in (c) using the Gantt chart a. b. The actual CT calculated using the Littles law is the same/more/less than the actual CT calculated in (c) using the Gantt chart
