<Process Flow Chart>

<Operations> 1) Receiving and Testing
☞ RECEIVING * 243 trucks deliver 75 barrels(=7500 pounds) per truck on average * 75*243 = 18225 barrels (1822500 pounds) * Last truck arrived (1140min) – First truck arrived (411min) = 729min (=1140 - 411) → 729min/60 = 12.15hrs (Total receiving time)
∴ For 12.15hours, 243 trucks delivered 18225 barrels. NCC receives 1500barrels/hr. - Delivering 75 barrels per truck - Capacity at each Dumper = 75 (barrel/truck) * 6 (trucks/hr) = 450 barrels/hr : Total capacity of 5 dumpers = 450 (barrel/hr) * 5 (dupms) = 2250 barrels/hr
3 dryers are used for Bagging and Bulking berries processing. ( 3 * 200 (barrels/hr) = 600 (barrels/hr) ☞Process of Dry Berries(no drying) * Destoning : 3 * 1500 barrels/hr = 4500 barrels/hr * Dechaffing : 30% of total are processed in dry process = 1500 barrels/hr ☞Process of Wet Berries(no destining) * Dechaffing: 70% of total are processed in wet process
(1500 * 2) = 3000 barrels/hr * Drying: 3 * 200 barrels/hr = 600 barrels/hr → Bottleneck
