How many pieces are produced during both working shifts? Considering both production lines, we get 200 pieces per hour. Thus, we get 3.200 pieces in 16h (2 working shifts). How many pieces are packed during 3 working shifts? 100 pieces are packed in 0,75h. In other words, 133,33 pieces in 1h. Consequently, 3.200 pieces are packed in 24h (3 working shifts). Packaging operation starts one hour later than bread production. This creates an increasing inventory until the end of the 2 nd shift (67u x 16h = 1.072u). This maximum inventory is cleared during the 3 rd shift. Average WIP = 0,5 x 1.072 = 536 u. Which is throughput time of the whole process? Little’s law to packaging process: - Throughput rate = 100 pieces 0,75 h = 133,33 pieces/h - Throughput time = 536 pieces 133,33 pieces h = 4 h - Total throughput time = 1h for bread production + 4h of inventory + 0,75h for packaging process = 5,75h

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
