Question

Solve problem 17.5 but assume that m = 0.5 for all stations.  Other data are the same

17.5 listed below

 

17.5 (a) A 10-station assembly machine has an ideal cycle time of 6 sec. The fraction defect rate at each station is 0.005 and a defect always jams the affected station. When a breakdown occurs, it takes 1.2 min, on average, for the system to be put back into operation. Determine (a) the hourly production rate for the assembly machine, (b) yield of good product (final assemblies containing no defective components), and (c) proportion uptime of the system.
