Slide 4 The Process View Inputs  are used in the process and transformed into outputs, e.g. raw  materials  Outputs  are coming out of the process, e.g. the finished products Resources  are used to transform inputs into outputs but are not  incorporated into the outputs, e.g. labor and capital Work-in-process  inventories are kept in the process Flow units  are transformed from inputs to outputs Inputs Outputs Flow Units (Raw Material, Customers) Goods Services Process

Slide 5 Elements of Process Activities Carried out by resources Add value and are required for completion of the flow unit May or may not carry inventory Have a capacity (maximum number of flow units that can flow through the  activity within a unit of time) Arrows Indicate the flow of the flow unit Multiple flow unit types possible Inventory/Buffers Do not have a capacity (may be limited) Multiple flow unit types possible

Slide 8 Process Flow Diagram @ Subway Flow unit = a customer’s order for a sub = a sub Convention: we call successive  tasks  performed by the same (set of)  resource(s) an  activity. Cut bread, add  cheese, and meat Cut bread, add  cheese, and meat Add  vegetables Add  vegetables take payment take payment Waiting sub  orders Add dressing,  cut and wrap Add dressing,  cut and wrap (Worker A) (Worker B) (Worker C) Waiting  subs Waiting  subs Waiting  subs toaster  oven toaster  oven Waiting  subs

Slide 9 Capacity of a Resource How many subs can be sold in 1 hour? To compute process capacity, we need to compute the capacity of each  resource or set of resources in parallel Capacity of a resource or a set of resources in parallel: maximum amount the  resource(s) can produce in a given time unit Activity time : time it takes to process one flow unit by one resource (can  be the sum of successive task times)
