Chapter 15: Problem 2: a. 4 5 6 7 8 Total Planned input 40 50 50 60 60 260 Plus Backlog 75 115 110 95 90 85 Planned output 70 70 70 70 70 350 (Backlog + input)/Planned output 164.3% 157.1% 135.7% 128.6% 121.4% This percentage is declining, so if this continues the backlog will be in control in a few more periods. One has to be concerned if Workcenter 2 has enough capacity to keep workcenter 3 running efficiently. Additionally, based on the actual output to planned output, one must be concerned if Workcenter 3 can efficiently supply workcenter 4. b. 4 5 6 7 8 Total Actual input 45 45 45 55 60 250 Plus backlog 75 120 105 90 85 85 Planned input + backlog 115 110 95 90 85 Actual input/ planned 104.3% 95.5% 94.7% 94.4% 100% c. 4 5 6 7 8 Total Actual Output 60 60 60 60 60 300 Planned output 70 70 70 70 70 350 Actual Output/Planned output 85.7% 85.7% 85.7% 85.7% 85.7% Total actual output/Total planned output = 300/350 = 85.7% d. The work center is producing almost 86% of its total planned output. Since both the planned and the actual inputs are below or equal to the actual output, and are below the planned outputs, the backlogs may be a temporary problem.
