Process Information provided:

Operation A - design capacity 400 units/hr - planned utilization


Operation B - (4 machines) design capacity 100, 80, 150, 125 units/hr - planned utilization 77%

Operation C - design capacity 350 units/hr - planned utilization 95%

Operation D - (2 machines) design capacity 190, 235 units/hr - planned utilization 72.5%

The sequence of flow is A -> B (any machine can be used if available) -> C -> D (any machine can be used if available). Calculate the overall flow rate for maximum (design) capacity and effective capacity.
