    STEP 1:
    Determine the setup, runtime, and total time for the shaping department. Copy your answer to an MS Word document.

    STEP 2: Pickling
    Determine the setup, runtime, and total time for the pickling department. Copy your answer to an MS Word document.

    STEP 3: Packing
    Determine the setup, runtime, and total time for the packing department. Copy your answer to an MS Word document.

    STEP 4: Bottleneck
    Determine which department is the bottleneck for this production operation. Remember that it often helps understand the relationship of the different processes by putting everything in a nice, neat table like we did last week.

    Scenario/Summary

    Situation: Maruchek's makeshift manufacturing facility has three departments: shaping, pickling, and packing. Maruchek's orders average 100 pieces per order.
    Each of the three shaping machines requires 1 hour to set up and can run one piece per minute.
    The pickling department lowers baskets into brine tanks and subjects them to low-voltage current, heating and cooling, and a rinse. The whole process takes 4 hours for any number of baskets or pieces. One brine tank is available and it is ...

    Solution Summary

    The setup, runtime and total time for a shaping department is determined for pickling, packing and bottlenecking.
