Unformatted text preview: it is conceivable that resources would idle even during periods of their net availability. Thus, resource idleness reduces the capacity of the process even below its effective capacity. Finally, recall that throughput cannot exceed process capacity. 3.) Resource pool – a collection of interchangeable resources that can perform an identical set of activities. The bottleneck of a process is the resource pool with the smallest capacity. 4.) Resource pools ultimately determine the capacity of a process. The more resources you have in the resource pools, the more capacity you will have. 5.) Theoretical capacity of a resource unit = (1/Tp)* load batch* scheduled availability, where Tp= unit load Theoretical capacity of a resource pool = Rp = (Cp/Tp)* load batch* scheduled availability, where Cp = the number of resource units, Tp = unit load Pp = R/Rp, where P = Rho = capacity utilization of resource pool p...
