The two steps in preparing chocolate candy bars are molding and packaging. Personal fatigue and delay allowances are set at 15%. The molding machine operator is rated at 110% and the packer is rated at 80%. Observed cycle times per batch are given below.
Observed Cycle Time in Minutes
Task 1 2 3 4
Molding 26 30 29 31
Packing 45 50 35 30
Determine the Normal and standard times for both tasks.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 9:54 pm ad1c9bdddf
= (total time) (% of time working on this task) (rating)/(number of units produced)
Standard time = Total Normal time/(1 - Allowance factor)
Average for the actual Molding cycle ...
The solution illustrates the determination of the Normal and standard times for two tasks. Cycle times per batch are observed.
