(g) If the process needs to handle 2000 students per week, what should be the largest processing time per student (in minutes) at the bottleneck stage? Question 3 Consider the three-stage process shown here with hourly capacity of each machine. a) What is the cycle time at Stage 1? b) What is the cycle time at Stage 2? c) What is the cycle time at Stage 3? d) Which stage is the bottleneck? e) What is the minimum TPT? = Suppose two new machines are added to the process (in parallel to other machines at a stage): P4 at stage 2 (with cycle time = 10 min / unit) and M3 at stage 3 (with cycle time = 6 min / unit). f) What is the process productivity? (There is one worker per machine). Question 4 Consider the three-stage process shown here, what is the minimum TPT? Question 5 Consider the four-stage process shown here with the processing times in minutes(: A1: 9, A2: 9, M1: 6, D1: 5, X1: 8 and X2: 12). What is the minimum TPT?...
