    Suppose a cycle time is 90 seconds.

    (a) Compute the theoretical minimum number of workstations.

    (Round your answer up to the nearest whole number.)

    TM = workstations

    (b) Compute the outputs.

    (Round your answers to 2 decimal places, the tolerance is +/-0.05.)

    The maximum output?

    units per hour

    The minimum output?

    units per hour

    (c) Compute the efficiency.

    (Round your answer to 2 decimal places, the tolerance is +/-0.05.)

    Efficiency = %
