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.
