OM 335 Bagchi Name: SOLUTION Individual Homework-3 Consider the Fishing Fleet and Cannery exercise. Suppose that daily input to the cannery follows the following pattern: (1) 100 tons/hr. between 8 a.m. and 12 noon, (2) 75 tons/hr. between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m., and (3) 100 tons/hr. between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. The processing capacity of the cannery is: (1) 100 tons/hr. between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., (2) 50 tons/hr. between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and (3) 100 tons/hr. between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Assume that there is unlimited freezer space for unprocessed fish. Draw an inventory buildup diagram that shows inventory of unprocessed fish in the freezer starting at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m. Consider a fish that enters the cannery between 8 a.m. and 12 noon. What is the average time (in minutes) spent by such a fish in the freezer before being packed? Method 1. It is clear from the inventory build-up diagram above that 300 tons of fish enter the freezer between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m., experience no waiting at all, and are gone by 11 a.m.; an additional 100 tons of fish enter the freezer between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, are processed at the rate

What students are saying

• 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.
