Determine the capacity of the production system shown in the below figure. The operation process WC-1, WC-4, WC-7 occurs separately and simultaneously with WC-2, WC-6, WC-9, which are independent and sequential operations. A product need to go through one of the assembly operations (either 1,4,7, 2,5,8 or 3,6,9 once only the operations are in parallel). Please note the bottleneck is based on time not units produced. 1. Which operation is the bottleneck? 2. What is the bottleneck time? 3. What is the throughput time of the overall system? 4. If the firm operates 8 hours per day, 20 days per month, what is the monthly capacity of the manufacturing process? 5. Which work center capacity should be increased, and by how much? 6. How much monthly capacity will be increased based on question 5’s answer?
