GETTING STARTED WITH FINE WINE RACK Overview. Fine Wine Rack is a job shop scheduling problem with necessary predecessor relationships reminiscent of MRP. However, the MRP algorithm is not the key to completing Fine Wine Rack because Fine Wine Rack is a finite loading problem. The key to creating the schedule is understanding the precedence relationships and how activities effect inventory levels from one hour to the next. I don't understand what to do. Schedule the shop for one week. Four people are working for you for 5 x 7 = 35 hours. What do you want them to do? But I can't get all those orders done in one week. Exactly! Most job shops run on a backlog - they have to choose which jobs they will complete in the near term and which will have to wait. You must choose also. Do not schedule more than one week of work. I don't understand how to get started. Start with the first hour of Monday morning. What do you have on hand right now? Table 3 tells you. Maybe you want Juan to make some 20 bottle high, single depth racks. That's activity code 5. If he does that for an hour, he makes 10 columns, but he uses 22 verticals and 420 horizontals. Do you have 22 verticals in stock at the beginning of Monday? No. So, you'd better not ask Juan to build racks first thing Monday morning. Can you give me an example of what I could tell people to do for the first hour of Monday morning?
