A certain job shop specializes in one-of-a-kind orders dealing with parts of medium-to-high complexity. A typical part is processed sequentially through ten machines in batch sizes of one. The shop contains a total of eight conventional machine tools and operates 40 hours per week of production time. Average time values on each part per machine are: Machining time = 0.5 hour; Work handling time = 0.3 hour; Tool change time = 0.2 hour; Setup time = 3 hours; Nonoperation time = 12 hours. A new programmable machine is being considered that can perform all ten operations in a single setup. The programming of the machine for this part will require 20 hours; however, the programming can be done off-line, without tying up the machine. Setup time will be just 2 hours because simpler fixtures will be used. Total machining time will be reduced to 80% of its previous value due to advanced tool control algorithms; work handling time will be the same as for one machine; and total tool change time will be reduced by 50% because tools will be changed automatically under program control. For the one machine, nonoperation time is expected to be 12 hours, same as for each conventional machine.   (a)Determine the manufacturing lead time for the conventional machines and for the new programmable machine (b)Determine the plant capacity for: (i) a job shop containing the eight traditional machines, and (ii) a job shop containing two of the new programmable machines.

    A flow-line mass production operation consists of six manual workstations. Work units are moved synchronously and automatically between stations, with a transfer time of 10 secs. The manual processing operations performed at the six stations take 45 sec, 50 sec, 40 sec, 42 sec, 30 sec, and 55 sec, respectively.  Determine (a) cycle time for the line, (b) time to process one work until through the six workstations, (c) average production rate, and (d) time to produce 20,000 units.
  • One operator services a bank of five machines. Machine running time and service time are bothexponential. Machines run for an average of 90 minutes between service requirements, and service time averages 35 minutes. The operator receives $20 per hour in salary and fringe benefits,and machine downtime costs $70 per hour per machine.a. If each machine produces 60 pieces per hour while running, find the average hourly output ofeach machine, when waiting and service times are taken into account.b. Determine the optimum number of operators.

  • A batch of 35 parts is ordered by a customer about every six months. The parts are currently processed sequentially through five conventional machines, listed in the following table with setup times and work cycle times per piece. These machines all require an operator to be in attendance during the work cycle. There is a delay of 10 hr/machine dueto transport between machines and waiting in queues of other parts processed by thesemachines. A recommendation has been made to process the parts on a new multitaskingmachine that would complete the batch in one setup, which would involve a simple fixtureand a setup time of 2.0 hr. The work cycle on the multitasking machine consists of thesame operations that are accomplished by the five machines, but the cycle time would beless than the sum of the five cycle times by one-half because of tool path improvementsand reduced part handling. Determine the manufacturing lead time (how long it takes tocomplete the batch of 35 parts, including…
    In a casting machining company, it takes an operator 30 seconds to load ,15 seconds to unload each machining center. There are several same centers, all working on the same type of part, and the duration of the automatic operation is 1 minute. The travel time between machines is 15 seconds. Given that the cost per hour of the operator $8 and the cost per hour of the machine is $10, using the man-machine diagram, determine the value of the highest production rate for the system
    A toy factory is planning to make an additional item, which would be processed in 4 departments. The company is proposing to produce 600,000 units per year, working 250 days per year.
