Recall the evanstonian, an upscale independent hotel that caters to both bussines and leisure travelers, introduced in chapter 3 in exercise 3.10. when a guest calls room service at the evanstonian, the room-service manager takes down the order.

Honda´s 1,100-cc motorcycle, the “American classic edition” (ACE) is assembled in the united states from four major subassemblies. The first subassembly produces the engine from three activities: a left and right part of the engine block come out of the automatic mold every 2 minutes. These two parts are welded together , requiring 1 minute of the continuous welding machine. Finally, it takes the engine assembler 3 minutes to insert the two pistons and four valves. The second subassembly produces the frame in two steps: first, heavy metal bars together with the continuous welding machine to produce the frame. The third subassembly consists of the front and rear fenders , both of which are formed using the same ( as used for the metal bars) 10,000-pound press for 1 minute each . the fourth subassembly makes the seat. It takes an assembler 7 minutes to cut the padding, pit it on a preformed piece of sheet metal, and wrap the two witch synthetic leather. In final assembly , first the four subassemblies are put together. Adding front- and tail-lights, wheels, driveshaft, brakes, and cables produces a new bike that is ready for test-drive. It takes 30 minutes to finish assembly of one motorcycle. Currently, honda ACE staffing is as follows there is 1 molding machine operator, 1 welder, 1 press operator, 1 engine assembler, 2 seat assemblers, and 10 final assemblers. a. Draw a process
