• 72

51. A paced assembly line has six work stations located one right after the other and runs with a cycle time of 30 seconds. Average queue time for the entire process is 2 minutes. Which of the following is the throughput time? Throughput time includes the time that the unit spends actually being worked on together with the time spent waiting in a queue. If the stations are located one right after another and every 30seconds parts move from one station to the next, then the throughput time is three minutes (30 seconds 6 stations/60 seconds per minute) plus queue time of 2 minutes = 5 minutes.

### What students are saying

• 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.
