Gang Chart (cont’d) The chart should not be constructed from observation of a single cycle. The average condition should be reflected on the chart (e.g., the length of waiting time). The basic purpose of the chart is to analyze the activities of the group and then compose the group so as to minimize waiting time and delays while keeping the number of operators small.

    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.
