The Fine Wine Rack Company Introduction Welcome to the wine cellar business. As Production Manager of the Fine Wine Rack Co., you supervise a small factory which builds custom bottle storage systems. These storage systems, or "wine racks", have been installed through out the country. Your typical customer is a private wine collector, usually wealthy, who is either building or remodeling a wine cellar to store his or her own collection. Ben Parker, the owner of the Fine Wine Rack Co., closes each deal personally and turns the order over to you to build. The order then becomes a "job" released into your factory, and is usually referred to by the name of the customer for whom it is being built. Ben promises that the job will be shipped by a certain date, although customers are happy to receive their cellars earlier, if possible. For more information on sales and revenue, see the "Financial Information" section of this packet. The Fine Wine Rack Factory is a modest sized job shop located in an industrial park adjacent the Bayshore Freeway outside San Francis, California. You currently have four crew members staffing the factory: Juan Vasquez (senior employee and master carpenter), Debbie Bates, Mike Parker (the son of your boss, Ben Parker), and Stan ("the Man") Reeves. Your job as Production Manager is to schedule the activities of these four employees, as well as keep them supplied with whatever materials they may need.

Building Fine Wine Racks Wine racks are made from clear-heart redwood, which is lumber cut from the center of a redwood tree. (Redwood is the preferred lumber of wine cellars, because it is highly mildew and insect resistant. Redwood gets its unique color from an acid which makes it unappetizing to most pests.) Individual racks consist of horizontal and vertical pieces fastened into ladder-shaped sub-assemblies, which are then held in place by horizontal bands of trim across the front and back of the rack. Step One: Part Making: Cut horizontal and vertical pieces Step Two: Rack Making: build ladder shaped subassemblies Step three: Attach Horizontal Trim to assemble wine rack The wine racks pictured above are twenty-bottle high, single depth racks. Four columns of wine rack are visible in the break-away section of finished racking on the right. Note that attaching the horizontal trim in the third step above is not done in your production shop at the Fine Wine Rack Company. Rather, the horizontal trim is created to order at your shop, and shipped separate from the ladder shaped sub-assemblies such as the one in the center of the picture. Step Three of this drawing is actually completed once all these items are delivered to the wine cellar
