Unformatted text preview: day through Saturday. Block 2 corresponds to a state where the machine is run on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Block 3 corresponds to a state where the machine is run Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Block 1 Block 2 Block 3 Number of possible MTSA runs/week 6 runs 4 runs 3 runs Table D.2: The three experimental blocks with the number of possible MTSA runs in each block. Block 1 corresponds to the current state in CCA (Monday through Saturday operations). Some experimental results are shown in Figure D-2, specifically the predicted size of the queue in front of the MTSA machine over the course of the year. It is clear from these results, specifically Figure D-2(c), that running the machine only three days a week leads to a steadily increasing queue size, which translates into increasing cycle times. However, running the machine four days a week (Figure D-2(b)) appears to produce a slightly elevated but stable queue size compared to the current state (Figure D-2(a)). The queue sizes in Figure D-2 lead to average cycle times over the 50 week perio...
