Suppose a work center has a setup plus run time of
30 minutes to make 50 parts. Also assume it takes
10 minutes to move a standard container of 50 parts to
the next work center and the demand rate is one part per
minute throughout the day.
a. Schedule this situation by drawing a picture of when
work center A should be producing and idle and
when movements of containers take place from A to
B, the using work center.
b. How many standard containers are needed for this
part to circulate from the picture in part a?
c. Use the formula n = DT ÷ C to calculate the number
