2/21/2016 Collection – MBA675­T303 Operations & Logistics in the (... 10/32 (Post is Read) only outputting 100 golf balls. If this were a company and only had a single 6 hour shift, then the bottleneck would be that the machine could only produce 25 balls (100 / 4 = 25) per shift. This bottleneck could be improved by adding additional shifts but would be restricted to a maximum of 4 shifts (6 x 4 = 24). I should have used something other than golf balls, but the difference can be applied to most any other product being produced.
