5, Current plans are to make 100 units of component A, then 100 units of component B, then
100 units of component A, then 100 units of component B, etc, where the setup and run times
for each component are given below.
Component
Setup / Changeover Time
Run Time/unit
A
5 minutes
0.2 minutes
B
10 minutes
0.1 minutes
Assume the packaging of the two components is totally automated and only takes 2 seconds
per unit of the final product.
This packaging time is small enough that you can ignore it.
What is the average hourly output, in terms of the number of units of packaged product
(which includes 1 component A and 1 component B)?
5 + 10 + .2(100) + .1(100) = 15 + 30 = 45 minutes/100 units
45/100 = 60/X
X = 133.3 units/hr.

a.
Take Order = 100 per hour * 12 hours = 1200
Pick Order = 80 per hour * 24 hours = 1920
Pack Order = 60 per hour * 24 hours = 1440
Maximum output is determined by order taking (1200) since the pick and pack
operations can work up to 24 hours to clear out their order backlog.
