Q6.2. Simple Set-Up (a) First, we calculate the process capacity at each step using the formula for process capacity with batching: B / S + Tb where B = batch size, S = set-up time, and Tb = time to process the entire batch. So, the first step has a proce

b. The average wait time = 1.8 minutes. The average time to walk to the destination = 25 minutes. Therefore, the total time between calling and arriving = 25+1.8 = e. 26.8 minutes. c. Again, we know that a=3.125, m=8, and p=25. We also know that if the co

Q3.3. Cranberry Cranberries arrive at a rate of 150 barrels per hour. They get processed at a rate of 100 barrels per hour. Thus, inventory accumulates at a rate of 150-100=50 barrels per hour. This happens while trucks arrive, i.e. from 6am to 2pm. The h

There are three ways in which to improve the sustainability of logistics and supply chain systems:

Q7.2. My Law (a) inter-arrival time: 10 emails per hour = 1 email / 6 min a = 6 min, CVa = 1 processing time: p = 5 min, CVp = 4 min / 5 min = 0.8 waiting time = 5 min * [5/6 / (1-5/6)] * [(12 + 0.82)/2] = 20.5 min total response time = waiting time + pro

a) The overage cost is Co = $2 because left over burritos are disposed. The underage cost is Cu = $2.55, because not having a burrito means the gross margin is lost on a burrito plus a soda. The critical ratio is 2.55 / (2 + 2.55) = 0.5604. From the table

Q2.2. Airline We use Little's law to compute the flow time, since we know both the flow rate as well as the inventory level: Flow Time = Inventory / Flow Rate = 35 passengers / 255 passengers per hour = 0.137 hours = 8.24 minutes Q2.3 Inventory Cost (a) S
