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.

comments to your discussion to help clarify. The difference in my mind is the
big picture versus a small part of the picture.
