Departments to bottleneck reduced or restricked flows of products through system productions and starved downstream departments (Vonderembse & White, 2013). When we add capacities to bottleneck’s department increases that capacity to a system that brings its capacities of that department at balanced levels to other departments. Decisions being made need to be based upon good estimates of demands (Vonderembse & White, 2013). 4. What are the key factors that determine when to add capacity? Capacities are variables to factors being determined when added capacities relate to increased for demands over periods of time. These increases should be circumstanced to higher that meets by other lesser forms for greater scheduling, operated procedure, increased over-time, added shifts, great qualities of rare material, and increased employee motivations (Vonderembse & White, 2013). 5. Why would an organization want to reduce its capacity? An organization reduce capacities because of decreased in demands or new location moves with better efficiencies and new technologies. This can be lesser because of a global lifestyle and extra products. Dept.

Thank you for the post. Please see additional comments within your paper. You included references. You included citations. Please keep up the good work. You can increase capacity without adding machines by doing any of the following or any combinations: 1. Work overtime on the grinding and drilling functions 2. Decrease the reject percentage on both function by process improvements 3. Reduce the run time on each piece for both functions; grinding and drilling.
