The director of a factory is planning, like every month, production for the next four months for a key machine in the process. This month planning is particularly delicate because, for the first time in the year, the month of August is included within the planning horizon. In August, as every year, vacation leave will leave the company with no production capacity, despite is one of the strongest months in demand. Secondly, the customer service policy of the company expressly prohibits the use of delayed orders. On the table below you can find demand in units and working days for each month in the planning period. Month Demand Working days May 1.270 21 June 1.360 22 July 1.800 21 August 1.570 0 For planning purposes, it is considered that the machine makes an average of 3 units / hour under normal conditions; the company works 2 shifts of 8 hours each per day. In the same days, a third shift could be used, at night, but at an additional cost of 150 / hour

    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.
