Questions
a/ what is the current max output of the process? b/ should we add a worker to step 2 ( as it is bottleneck)?

Answers
a/
OperationOutput
unpack & place on belt(60 min per hour/1 minute per order) X 8hours = 480 students per day Strip off bad habits(60 min per hour/1.5 minute per order) X 8hours = 320 students per day scrub & clean mind(60 min per hour/0.8 minute per order) x 8 hours = 600 students per day Insert modern methods(60 min per hour/1 minute per order) X 8hours = 480 students per day Polish & pack(60 min per hour/1.2 minute per order) x 8 hours = 400 students per day Max output = 1600 students per day
