Case: Designing Toshiba’s Notebook Computer Line (pg. 93) Assignment: As a team, answer the following questions: 1. What is the daily capacity of the assembly line with the workstation assignments given in the case? a. Determine capacity based on the bottleneck workstation, assuming work-in-process computers are moved from one workstation to the next at the speed of the bottleneck. b. Hint – in workstation #9, the software load is performed on three different units at the same time so you need to divide that time (and only that time – the other tasks in workstation #9 do not change) by 3 when calculating the time it takes for that workstation to complete a unit. Station 9 is the bottleneck workstation because it takes total of 31+ 208/3+71= 171 sec to finish which is the longest time in 10 stations. Therefore, its daily capacity is (7.5*60*60)/171= 158 units/day 2. When running at the daily capacity (as determined in #1), what is the efficiency of the line? Remember that you are operating the line at the speed of the bottleneck.
