Consider the process flow diagram that we made in class for McDonald’s. To simplify the scenario, imagine that the process only produces burgers (1 patty & 1 bun). In particular, the GRILL can produce 15 patties in 4 minutes. The PLATEN can produce 20 buns in 4 minutes. A worker in ASSEMBLY can assemble 1 burger in 10 seconds. One worker at the COUNTER can give 1 burger to a customer in 1 minute. There are 4 workers in COUNTER operations and 1 worker in ASSEMBLY. Which is the total capacity of the process?
Solution: Grill operation Cycle time= 4 mins per 15 patties= 4*60 secs/15=16 secs per patty Platen operation Cycle time= 4 mins per 20 buns= 4*60 secs/20=12 secs per bun assembly Cycle time= 10 secs per burger Coun ... See the full answer
