Question details

QUESTION 7 A study to replace the operator in Problem 3 with a robot indicates that the burden rate for the cell would increase to $345 per hour, the part machining time would drop to 12 minutes, and the setup time would drop to 0.4 hours. Would this additional automation decrease part cost? What is the part cost for the ideal lot size of 25 on this new cell? (Enter your answer as a number without the dollar $ sign.)
