S7.3If a plant has an effective capacity of 6,500 and an


efficiency of 88%, what is the actual (planned) output?




S7.5Material delays have routinely limited production


of household sinks to 400 units per day. If the plant efficiency is


80%, what is the effective capacity?




S7.7Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s business


program has the facilities and faculty to handle an enrollment


of 2,000 new students per semester. However, in an effort


to limit class sizes to a “reasonable” level (under 200, generally),


Southeastern’s dean, Holly Lutze, placed a ceiling on enrollment


of 1,500 new students. Although there was ample demand for


business courses last semester, conflicting schedules allowed only


1,450 new students to take business courses. What are the utilization


and efficiency of this system?




S7.11The three-station work cell illustrated in Figure S7.7


has a product that must go through one of the two machines at


station 1 (they are parallel) before proceeding to station 2.


Station 1

Machine A








Capacity: 20 units/hr



Station 2

Capacity: 5 units/hr

Station 1Machine B




Station 3

Capacity: 12 units/hr


Capacity: 20 units/hr


a) What is the bottleneck time of the system?


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


c) What is the throughput time?


d) If the firm operates 10 hours per day, 5 days per week, what is


the weekly capacity of this work cell?


S7.15A production process at Kenneth Day Manufacturing


is shown in Figure S7.9. The drilling operation occurs separately


from, and simultaneously with, the sawing and sanding operations.


A product needs to go through only one of the three assembly


operations (the operations are in parallel).


a) Which operation is the bottleneck?


b) What is the bottleneck time?


c) What is the throughput time of the overall system?


d) If the firm operates 8 hours per day, 20 days per month, what


is the monthly capacity of the manufacturing process?








S7.28James Lawson’s Bed and Breakfast, in a small historic


Mississippi town, must decide how to subdivide (remodel)


the large old home that will become its inn. There are three


alternatives: Option A would modernize all baths and combine


rooms, leaving the inn with four suites, each suitable for two to


four adults. Option B would modernize only the second floor; the


results would be six suites, four for two to four adults, two for


two adults only. Option C (the status quo option) leaves all walls


intact. In this case, there are eight rooms available, but only two


are suitable for four adults, and four rooms will not have private


baths. Below are the details of profit and demand patterns that


will accompany each option:








A (modernize all)





B (modernize all)





C (status quo)






Which option has the highest expected monetary val
