Meritor is s o pleas ed with the outc ome from prev ious s ugges tions that the c ons ultants are inv ited bac k for
more work . The c ons ultants now s ugges t a more c omplete robotic automation of the mak ing of muffler
as s emblies and als o a reduc tion in c ontainer s iz e to four per c ontainer. Meritor implements thes e
s ugges tions and the res ult is that the muffler as s embly fabric ation c ell now av erages approx imately 30
as s emblies per hour, and the c ataly tic c onv erter as s embly c ell c an now res pond to an order for a batc h of
c ataly tic c onv erters in one hour. The s afety s toc k remains at 14 perc ent. How many k anban c ards are
needed? (Round up your answer to the next whole num ber.) Number of k anban c ard s ets 9 Explanation: D = 30 c ataly tic c onv erters per hour
L = 1 hour
S = 0.140
C = 4 c ataly tic c onv erters
k= DL(1 + S)
C k= 30 × 1(1 + 0.140)
= 8.55 or 9 Kanban c ard s ets
