M=12.27. We need 13 machines. Problem 2 2) Q B in the above equation is unknown. We let M=12 and solve for Q B , with all other parameters unchanged. Q B = 261.82. Rounded up Q B =262. 3) The cushion level, C, in the above equation is unknown. We let M=12 and solve for C, with all other parameters unchanged. s B =23.3%. Problem 3 4) The packing step is the bottleneck of the process. The capacity rate of the process is 60 orders/hour. This is the maximum output rate of the process. Note: the total output (# orders) processed over a day is more than (60)(12) = 720, because the packing may work over time....
