Question

The Highway Case

Driving on the highway is analogous to a manufacturing system. Suppose a

4-mile section of highway I70 is our manufacturing system. Cars that drive along route I70 towards the Dayton airport direction represent parts which are being processed in this system. We assume on this particular day, all cars travel towards the same destination, follow the same route, and take the same exit.
