The location of a warehouse is important since it determines the cost of transportation. The plot should be large enough to handle current truck traffic and future expansions. Which one of the following shapes for warehouse building design has proven to be very efficient at giving the shortest average distance to be traveled during pickup and distribution operations when the units having about the same demand are stored over the entire floor evenly? (2) a. Square b. Diamond c. Rhombus d. Rectangle e. Parallelogram 2. Which one of the following describes a section of a manufacturing system where there are numerous servers in parallel with exponential service times and with exponential inter-arrival times to the system? The capacity of this system is infinite. (No arrival is turned away). (2) a. E/E/M b. M/M/1 c. M/M/C d. E/E/C e. M/M/C/k 3. Two workers receive units for service from an accumulator line. The main conveyor feeds the accumulator as long as it has room to accommodate a unit. If the accumulator is full, the units continue on the main conveyor and are processed later by a relief worker. If the units arrive at the accumulator line following a Poisson distribution with parameter λ = 8 units / minute and the probability that the line is full at any given moment is 0.10, what is the effective arrival rate for this service area? (2) a. 0.6 (1 - .10) = Can Accept b. 5.4 (8 x (1 – .10)) = 7.2 c. 6.0 d. 10.8 - 1 -
