Q.1) Compute the following quantities for the current production process as well as for Mike’s and Ike’s plans, assuming the plans are implemented as described in the case. Answer The production process at the Executive Shirt Company will depend on the types of shirts produced. The color and size will also be considered. The single cutting machine can cut just 60 layers and 8 patterns of clothes. This takes half an hour. One and half hours will be used to roll all the 60 layers of clothes. Four operators will be operating the machine, to achieve the company’s full capacity. Shirts in a single run = 480 Time taken = 2 hours Minutes/ shirt = 25/100 Workers = 4 Labor content =25.76

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
