============================ Ch. 6 =============================== 7. 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. b. If we take the maximum of 1200 orders then: Pick Order = 1200 orders/80 per hour = 15 hours Pack Order = 1200 orders/60 per hour = 20 hours c. Orders can be taken at a rate of 100/hours and can be picked at the rate of 80/hour so they build at the rate of 20/hour. Orders are taken for 12 hours. Maximum orders waiting for picking = 20/hour * 12 hours = 240 d. Orders can be picked at a rate of 80/hours and can be packed at the rate of 60/hour so they build at the rate of 20/hour. Orders are picked for 15 hours. Maximum orders waiting for packing= 20/hour * 15 hours = 300 e. (b. revisited) If we take the maximum of 1200 orders then:
