Product Y: 3 min/unit Machine available: 7 hrs/day, 20 days/month or 140 hrs/month. hrs/day, We must produce X and Y in the ratio 1: 2 Preliminary calculations: Machine Capacity in term of standard product: = 140 [hrs/month] * 60 [ min/hr] / 4 [min/unit = 2100 [units/month] Production time division between X and Y: We must produce X and Y in the ratio 1: 2. One unit of X will take 4 minutes and two units of Y will take 6 minutes. Therefore, the production time should be divided in the ratio 4:6 or 40% to 60%. Questions: Suppose there is 1 hour set-up time when you change products. set--- How should we schedule, and what will be monthly production if Part (a) We need to maximize monthly production. Part (b) We must produce both products daily. 21 Example: Effect of s...
