Given the data in Problem 16.18, solve the problem except that (a) the proposal is to divide the line
into threestages, that is, with two storage buffers located between stations 10 and 11, and between
stations 20 and 21,respectively; and (b) the pr
In the transfer line of Problems 16.18 and 16.20, suppose it is more technically feasible to locate the
storagebuffer between stations 11 and 12, rather than between stations 15 and 16. Determine (a)
the maximumpossible line efficiency and productio
Solve Problem 16.20 but assume that the downtime (Td = 8.0 min) follows the geometric repair
Solution: From previous Problem 16.20, Eo = 0.238 and E = 0.385

A manual assembly line has 17 workstations with one operator per station. Work content time to
assemble the product = 28.0 min. Production rate of the line = 30 units per hour. The proportion

A proposed synchronous transfer line will have 20 stations and will operate with an ideal cycle time
of 0.5min. All stations are expected to have an equal probability of breakdown, p = 0.01. The average

In a mixed-model assembly line, what is the difference between variable-rate launching and fixedratelaunching?
Answer: In variable-rate launching, the time interval between the launching of the current base part
and the nextis set equal to the cycle tim

A manual assembly line must be designed for a product with annual demand = 80,000 units. The line
willoperate 50 wks/year, 5 shifts/wk, and 7.5 hr/shift. Work units will be attached to a continuously
movingconveyor. Work content time = 42.0 min. Assume li
A product whose work content time = 47.5 min is to be assembled on a manual production line. The

A part is to be produced on an automated transfer line. The total work content time to make the part
is 36minutes, and this work will be divided evenly amongst the workstations, so that the processing
time at eachstation is 36/n, where n = the numbe
A single model assembly line is being planned to produce a consumer appliance at the rate of
200,000 units peryear. The line will be operated 8 hours per shift, two shifts per day, five days per
week, 50 weeks per year.Work content time = 35.0 min. For pl
What does the term line efficiency mean in production line terminology?
Answer: Line efficiency is the proportion uptime on the production line. It is the ratio of the
theoretical cycletime Tc to the actual average production time Tp when downtime on th
What are storage buffers and why are they sometimes used on a manual assembly line?
Answer: A storage buffer is a location in the production line where work units are temporarily stored.
Asidentified in the text, the reasons to include one or more storage
A 30-station transfer line has an ideal cycle time of 0.75 min, an average downtime of 8.0 min per
line stopoccurrence, and a station failure frequency of 0.01 for all stations. A proposal has been
submitted to locate astorage buffer between station
A transfer machine has a mean time between failures (MTBF) = 50 minutes and a mean time to
repair (MTTR) =9 minutes. If the ideal cycle rate = 1/min (when the machine is running), what is the
average hourly productionrate?
Solution: Tc = 1/Rc = 1 mi
Identify and briefly describe the three major categories of mechanized work transport systems used
Answer: The three major categories of mechanized work transport systems are (1) continuous
transport, whichuses a continuously moving
What do the terms starving and blocking mean?
Answer: Starving is the situation in which the assembly operator has completed the assigned task on
the currentwork unit, but the next unit has not yet arrived at the station. The worker is thus starved
To cope with product variety, three types of assembly line are described in the text. Name the three
types andexplain the differences between them.
Answer: The three types of assembly line are (1) single model line, in which only one product is made
What is the application of the rank order clustering?
Answer: The application of the rank order clustering in GT is grouping machines into cells based on
incidence matrix, which in turn is based on route sheets.
What is the principal application of group technology in product design?
Answer: As indicated in the text, the principal application of GT in design is to implement a design
system that reduces part proliferation.
What is the application of the

What is a manual assembly line?
Answer: The definition given in the text is the following: A manual assembly line is a production line
thatconsists of a sequence of workstations where assembly tasks are performed by human workers.
