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

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...
