**Sally Field**, Thursday, November 15, 2012 at 6:17ama) What is the process time of the system?

Since the product must go through one of the two machines at Station 1 before proceeding to Station 2, the process time of the system is 20 units per hour. Therefore, either Machine A or Machine B represents the process time of each assembly line.

b) What is the bottleneck time of this work cell?

The bottleneck time of this work cell is Station 2, which has a capacity of 5 units per hour. This becomes the bottleneck for the entire product because Station 1 can product 20 units per hour and if they both send to Station 2, that would be 40 units per hour. This would cause a delay or bottleneck because Station 2 is only able to produce or accommodate 5 units per hour.

c) What is the process cycle time?

The process cycle time is 20 units + 5 units + 12 units (total of 37 units per hour)

d) If the firm operates 10 hours per day, 5 days per week, what is the weekly capacity of this work cell?

10 hours per day

5 days per week

37 units per hour X 10 hours per day = 370 units per day

370 units per day X 5 days = 1,850 units per week
