From a factory producing metal sheet, following defective were analyses in every lot size. Prepare relevant chart only UCL and LCL. Lot Size 100 125 90 120 110
Defective 6 7 4 8 10
Solution
Since the Lot size are different we have to use ‘u’ chart. Sample NO LOT Size Defective Proportion of defective UCL LCL 1 100 6 0.06 0.140245 0.0118
2 125 7 0.056 0.06422 0.00378
3 90 4 0.04  0.144358 0.01592
4 120 8 0.066666667 0.133621 0.00518
5 110 10 0.090909091 0.136707 0.00827
Total 545 35   
u =sum of defects in all lots / total number of items in all lots = 35/545 = 0.064
UCL = u + 3√(u/ni)
LCL = u  3√(u/ni)
UCL always <1.0
And LCL always >0
Since here all the LCL value <0 we have to ignore LCL values.

4. a) Topaz Industries manufactures Z brand radar scanner used to detect speed traps. The printed circuit boards in the scanners are purchased from an outside vendor. The vendor produces the boards to an AQL of 2% defective and is willing to run 5% risk(alpha) of having lots of this level or fewer defectives rejected. Topaz’s consider lot of 8% or more defective lot tolerance unacceptable and time. A large shipment has just been delivered. what values of n and c should be selected to determine the quality of this lot? Solution:
The negotiated consumer’s and producer’s risks, corresponding to LTPD 8% and AQL of 2%, are 10% and 5% each.
Therefore P0.10/P0.95 = 0.08/0.02 = 4
Therefore c = 4 gives the best fit.
Now as per the table, the sample size can be calculated at the producer’s risk point : np0.95 =1.970 n= 1.970/0.02 = 98.5=99
Therefore the sampling plan is (99,4)
6) Elisa watches assemble four different types of watches on their assembly line. The assembly line in done in batches. Given the following data, in what batch sizes should each type of watch be produced? The company has 300 working days in a year. Find economic batch quantity? Watch Annual dd  Unit Set up cost(Per set up) Carrying cost per unit per yr Assembling rate(no/day) TAGH 9000 1000 40 100
TITAN 5000 1000 50 120
GUCCI 10000 1000 120 100
FOSSIL 3000 1000 30 90
Solution:
There are 300 working days in a year.
Based on the above given information, following gives the rates of consumption of the products, the economic batch quantitates for each watch, the days for which a manufactured batch will last at the given consumption rate and the individual production times for each batch of product (along with the total time for production for a batcheach of the entire range of products). I II III IV V VI VII VIII
Watch Annual dd Assembling rate(unit/day) Daily consumption rate(unit/day) Economic Batch Quantity No of days required to produce a batch quantity No of days required to manufacture annual requirements No of days taken to consume a batch quantity TAGH 9000 100 30 670.8204 6.708 90 22.36
TITAN 5000 120 16.6666 447.2136 3.726 41.66 26.83 GUCCI 10000 100 33.33333 408.2483 4.08 100 12.24 FOSSIL 3000 90 10 447.2136 4.96 33.33 44.72 Total 19.48 265 
Calculation of Daily consumption rate by the formula Column II / 300 Calculation of EBQ = √(2 X Annual dd X Setup Cost) / Carrying cost Calculation of No of days required to produce a batch quantity = Column V/ Column III Calculation of No of days required to manufacture annual requirements = Column II/ Column III Calculation of No of days taken to consume a batch quantity = Column V/ Column IV
Above table gives the total production days required to manufacture the entire annual requirement of all 4 watches as 26, whereas the total number of production days available are 300. Therefore the aggregate capacity seems to be sufficient for the manufacture of the annual requirement of all the watches. But, the total number of production days required, if an economic batch quantity of each of the products was produced, is 19.48 days. In other words, 19.48 days of the production cycle are required if each of the products is produced once in the amount as required by the economic batch quantity formula. We observe in the above table that, for watch GUCCI the number of days to consume such as EBQ is less than 19.48. That means in a situation when a batch of the entire range of watches is to be manufactured the watch GUCCI will experience shortage because it will have been consumes fully much before the completion of the 19.48 days.

Question 2(b)
A continuous time study was made of a job that was broken down in to live elements with the following results (times are in minutes). The allowance factor is 10% (i) What is the standard time to do the job (ii) what is the per piece rate in case the worker is paid Rs200 per day: Element Cycle Performance Rating (%)
 1 2 3 4 5 
A 0.16 1.37 2.10 2.80 4.00 80
B 0.37 1.58 2.33 3.00 4.22 90
C 0.57 1.80 2.51 3.20 4.42 110
D 1.20 1.93 2.65 3.84 4.85 100
Solution:
Element Cycle Performance Rating (%) Arithmetic Average Normal Time for Element Minutes  1 2 3 4 5   
A 0.16 1.37 2.10 2.80 4.00 80 2.086 1.6688 B 0.37 1.58 2.33 3.00 4.22 90 2.3 2.07
C 0.57 1.80 2.51 3.20 4.42 110 2.5 2.75
D 1.20 1.93 2.65 3.84 4.85 100 2.894 2.894 Total 9.3828
Normal time = (Arithmetic Average of the Recorded time X Performance Rating Expressed in percentage with 100% as the ‘accepted’ performance) / 100
Standard Time = Normal Time / (1 – Total Allowance expressed as a fraction)
Therefore Standard Time = 9.38 / (1 – 0.10) = 10.425 minutes
Working Time = 60 X 8 = 480 Minutes
No of piece can be made 480 / 10.425 = 46.04
Daily payment = Rs 200 Per piece rate = 200 / 46.04 = Rs 4.34
Question 3(a)
You are given the values of sample means (X bar) and the ranges (R) for the ten samples of size 5 each.
Sample

X = ∑X/10 = 442/10 = 44.2
R = ∑Rn = 5810 =5.8
From the given table for a sample size 5, A2=0.58, D3=0 D4=2.11
UCL for X = X + A2 R = 44.2 +(0.58*5.8) = 47.564
LCL for X = X  A2 R = 44.2  (0.58*5.8) = 40.836
CL for X = 44.2
CL for R = 5.8
UCL for R = D4R = 2.11 X 5.8 = 12.238
LCL for R = 0
According to above calculation are compared with these tentative limits. Sample 2 is above the UCL. This means that the process is not stable during the base period. Question 5(b)

Question 7(a)
The processing time and due dates for 5 jobs are given below Jobs Processing times (Days) Due Date (Days from present) A 20 100
B 28 70
C 12 52
D 36 110
E 8 58
Find our average flow/wait and average delay by using the
(i) Shortest processing(operating) time rule.
(ii) Earliest due date rule.
(iii) FCFS rule. Comment as to which rule is better.
Solution:
(i) The SPT rule results in the sequence BDACE. Orders are sequenced according to processing time, with the highest priority given to shortest job.
Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
E 8 8 58 0
C 12 20 52 0
A 20 40 100 0
B 28 68 70 0
D 36 104 110 0
 104 240  0
The Shortest Processing Time results in the following measures of effectiveness: Average flow time = 240/5= 48 days
Average delay time 0/5 =0
(ii) The EDD rule gives the sequence CEBAD. Note that jobs are ordered earliest due date first. Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
C 12 12 52 0
E 8 20 58 0
B 28 48 70 0
A 20 68 100 0
D 36 104 110 0
 104 252  0
The Earliest Due Date rule results in the following measures of effectiveness Average Flow time = Total flow time / no of jobs = 252/5 = 50.4 Average job delays = total delays days/ no of jobs = 0/5 = 0 (ii) The FCFS sequence is simply ABCDE. The "flow time" in the system for this sequence measures the time each jobs depends waiting plus being processed.
Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
A 20 20 100 0
B 28 48 70 0
C 12 60 52 8
D 36 96 110 0
E 8 104 58 46
 104 328  54
(iii) The First Come First Serve rule (FCFS)results in the following measures of effectiveness: Average Flow time = Total Flow Time / No of Jobs = 328 days/5 = 65.6 days Average delay = Total delays days / No of Jobs = 54/5 = 10.8 days Shortest processing time is generally the best technique for minimizing job flow and minimizing the average number of jobs in the system. Its chief disadvantage is that longduration jobs may be continuously pushed back in priority in favor of shortduration jobs. Customers may view this dimly, and a periodic adjustment for longer jobs has been made.
Question 7(b)
A TV manufacturing company produces 2000 TV sets in a year for which it needs an equal number of tubes of a certain type. Each tube costs Rs 10 and the cost to hold a tube in stock in a year is Rs 2.40. Besides, the cost of placing an order is Rs150, which is not related to its size. i) Determine EOQ and total inventory cost.
ii) If the demand increase by 25% what is the new EOQ and the new Total Cost. Solution:
Consumption of Tube in a year = 2000 units = C
Cost of placing an order = Rs 150 = O
Purchase price per unit of Tube = Rs 10
Storage cost = Rs 2.4 = S
EOQ = √{2CO/S} =√{2*2000*150/2.4} = 500

Solution:
For selecting best site for plant locations by using Bridgement’s dimensional analysis. In this method we compare pairwise location in ratio with each other. R12 = Preference for location 1 / Preference for location 2
R12 = X11X12W X X21X22W X X31X32W
Now we compare Location A and location B
R12 = (350/415)3 X (25/23)2 X (375/315)3 X (215/240)4 X (1015/960)3 X (4/3)4 X (3/3)3 X (2/4)2 = 0.599 X 1.18 X 1.68 X 0.644 X 1.18 X 3.16 X 1X 0.25 = 0.719
R12<1
Therefore Location A is better than Location B.
Question 4 (c)
With routing as Machine I to Machine II, draw the bar chart of scheduling the following orders on this work center using Johnson’s rule for sequencing the jobs:
Processing time for
 Job A Job B Job C Job D Job E
Machine I 5 3 2 7 5
Machine II 7 2 7 1 9
Solution:
Set the sequence that will minimise the total processing time for the five jobs: Step 1 : The job with the shortest processing time is D, in Machine II (with a time of 1 hour).
Because it is at the second centre, schedule A last.
    D
Step 2 : There is a tie(at 2) for the shortest remaining job. We can place C, which was on the Machine I, first. Then B is placed in the last sequencing position.
C B A E D
Step 2 : There is again a tie(at 5) for the shortest remaining job. We can place A, which was on the Machine I, first. Then E is placed in the last sequencing position. The sequential times are:
Job C B A E D
Machine I 2 3 5 5 7
Machine II 7 2 7 9 1

Normal Time for the Job = 2.316      
Allowance = 50 Minutes
% Allowance = 50/430X 100 = 11.62% of normal time
Standard time / piece = 2.316+11.62%*2.316 + 0.1 = 2.68
Fatigue 10% = 10/100 = .1
Standard Production in 8 Hrs = 2.316 X 60 / 2.68 = 51.850 units
Q6 a) Consider a product, code named A, manufactured by a company. Product A is made of three subassemblies B, C and D. One unit of B, four units of C and two units of D are required for assembling one unit of product A. Subassembly C is made of two units of E and four units of D, whereas subassembly D is made of one unit of G and three units of H. (i) Develop a product structure for product A
(ii) How many units of D are required to manufacture of 10 units of A? (iii) Will the answers change if there is already an inventory of 10 units each of C and D?

1 unit of production of C is required 4 units of D, Therefore 4 units of production of C required 16 units of D.
(ii) That means 1 unit of product A required 16 units of D, so 10 units of product A required 160 units of D. (iii) If there is already an inventory of 10 units each of C and D, then the product planning as follows. Total C required 4010 = 30 units
D = 160 – 10 = 150 units.
Question 4. A manufacturing organization employs 220 people in the factory. The manufacturing is largely manual; therefore, man hours are a good measure of the capacity of the system. The factory currently works for a single shift of eight hours. The number of working days for the next six months is as follows: 24, 22,25,19,21 and 23. The company uses this information to plan its capacities. The demand for its product during the next six months is such that with the current level of employment, the company will have 80 percent capacity utilization. During the next six months, the number of working days remains the same but the demand is likely to go up by 35 percent. Under these circumstances, analyses the situation and answer the following questions:
(i) What is the total capacity available in the factory as of now? (ii) The company is considering three options to meet the implementing demand for capacity? a. Introduce two hours of overtime for the next six months. b. Introduce one hours of overtime for the first three months and two hours of idle time thereafter.
Solution:
i) Calculation of factory capacity (in hours) : Total no of workers 220 Shift hours per day = 8 hours
Daily factory capacity (in hours) = 220*8 hours = 1760 hours Month No of working days Factory Capacity (in hours)

u =sum of defects in all lots / total number of items in all lots = 35/545 = 0.064
UCL = u + 3√(u/ni)
LCL = u  3√(u/ni)
UCL always <1.0
And LCL always >0
Since here all the LCL value <0 we have to ignore LCL values.

4. a) Topaz Industries manufactures Z brand radar scanner used to detect speed traps. The printed circuit boards in the scanners are purchased from an outside vendor. The vendor produces the boards to an AQL of 2% defective and is willing to run 5% risk(alpha) of having lots of this level or fewer defectives rejected. Topaz’s consider lot of 8% or more defective lot tolerance unacceptable and time. A large shipment has just been delivered. what values of n and c should be selected to determine the quality of this lot? Solution:
The negotiated consumer’s and producer’s risks, corresponding to LTPD 8% and AQL of 2%, are 10% and 5% each.
Therefore P0.10/P0.95 = 0.08/0.02 = 4
Therefore c = 4 gives the best fit.
Now as per the table, the sample size can be calculated at the producer’s risk point : np0.95 =1.970 n= 1.970/0.02 = 98.5=99
Therefore the sampling plan is (99,4)
6) Elisa watches assemble four different types of watches on their assembly line. The assembly line in done in batches. Given the following data, in what batch sizes should each type of watch be produced? The company has 300 working days in a year. Find economic batch quantity? Watch Annual dd  Unit Set up cost(Per set up) Carrying cost per unit per yr Assembling rate(no/day) TAGH 9000 1000 40 100
TITAN 5000 1000 50 120
GUCCI 10000 1000 120 100
FOSSIL 3000 1000 30 90
Solution:
There are 300 working days in a year.
Based on the above given information, following gives the rates of consumption of the products, the economic batch quantitates for each watch, the days for which a manufactured batch will last at the given consumption rate and the individual production times for each batch of product (along with the total time for production for a batcheach of the entire range of products). I II III IV V VI VII VIII
Watch Annual dd Assembling rate(unit/day) Daily consumption rate(unit/day) Economic Batch Quantity No of days required to produce a batch quantity No of days required to manufacture annual requirements No of days taken to consume a batch quantity TAGH 9000 100 30 670.8204 6.708 90 22.36
TITAN 5000 120 16.6666 447.2136 3.726 41.66 26.83 GUCCI 10000 100 33.33333 408.2483 4.08 100 12.24 FOSSIL 3000 90 10 447.2136 4.96 33.33 44.72 Total 19.48 265 
Calculation of Daily consumption rate by the formula Column II / 300 Calculation of EBQ = √(2 X Annual dd X Setup Cost) / Carrying cost Calculation of No of days required to produce a batch quantity = Column V/ Column III Calculation of No of days required to manufacture annual requirements = Column II/ Column III Calculation of No of days taken to consume a batch quantity = Column V/ Column IV
Above table gives the total production days required to manufacture the entire annual requirement of all 4 watches as 26, whereas the total number of production days available are 300. Therefore the aggregate capacity seems to be sufficient for the manufacture of the annual requirement of all the watches. But, the total number of production days required, if an economic batch quantity of each of the products was produced, is 19.48 days. In other words, 19.48 days of the production cycle are required if each of the products is produced once in the amount as required by the economic batch quantity formula. We observe in the above table that, for watch GUCCI the number of days to consume such as EBQ is less than 19.48. That means in a situation when a batch of the entire range of watches is to be manufactured the watch GUCCI will experience shortage because it will have been consumes fully much before the completion of the 19.48 days.

D 1.20 1.93 2.65 3.84 4.85 100 2.894 2.894 Total 9.3828
Normal time = (Arithmetic Average of the Recorded time X Performance Rating Expressed in percentage with 100% as the ‘accepted’ performance) / 100
Standard Time = Normal Time / (1 – Total Allowance expressed as a fraction)
Therefore Standard Time = 9.38 / (1 – 0.10) = 10.425 minutes
Working Time = 60 X 8 = 480 Minutes
No of piece can be made 480 / 10.425 = 46.04
Daily payment = Rs 200 Per piece rate = 200 / 46.04 = Rs 4.34

X = ∑X/10 = 442/10 = 44.2
R = ∑Rn = 5810 =5.8
From the given table for a sample size 5, A2=0.58, D3=0 D4=2.11
UCL for X = X + A2 R = 44.2 +(0.58*5.8) = 47.564
LCL for X = X  A2 R = 44.2  (0.58*5.8) = 40.836
CL for X = 44.2
CL for R = 5.8
UCL for R = D4R = 2.11 X 5.8 = 12.238
LCL for R = 0
According to above calculation are compared with these tentative limits. Sample 2 is above the UCL. This means that the process is not stable during the base period. Question 5(b)

Find our average flow/wait and average delay by using the
(i) Shortest processing(operating) time rule.
(ii) Earliest due date rule.
(iii) FCFS rule. Comment as to which rule is better.
Solution:
(i) The SPT rule results in the sequence BDACE. Orders are sequenced according to processing time, with the highest priority given to shortest job.
Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
E 8 8 58 0

A 20 40 100 0
B 28 68 70 0
D 36 104 110 0
 104 240  0
The Shortest Processing Time results in the following measures of effectiveness: Average flow time = 240/5= 48 days
Average delay time 0/5 =0
(ii) The EDD rule gives the sequence CEBAD. Note that jobs are ordered earliest due date first. Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
C 12 12 52 0
E 8 20 58 0
B 28 48 70 0
A 20 68 100 0
D 36 104 110 0
 104 252  0
The Earliest Due Date rule results in the following measures of effectiveness Average Flow time = Total flow time / no of jobs = 252/5 = 50.4 Average job delays = total delays days/ no of jobs = 0/5 = 0 (ii) The FCFS sequence is simply ABCDE. The "flow time" in the system for this sequence measures the time each jobs depends waiting plus being processed.
Jobs Processing Time Flow Time Due Date Delay
A 20 20 100 0
B 28 48 70 0
C 12 60 52 8
D 36 96 110 0
E 8 104 58 46
 104 328  54
(iii) The First Come First Serve rule (FCFS)results in the following measures of effectiveness: Average Flow time = Total Flow Time / No of Jobs = 328 days/5 = 65.6 days Average delay = Total delays days / No of Jobs = 54/5 = 10.8 days Shortest processing time is generally the best technique for minimizing job flow and minimizing the average number of jobs in the system. Its chief disadvantage is that longduration jobs may be continuously pushed back in priority in favor of shortduration jobs. Customers may view this dimly, and a periodic adjustment for longer jobs has been made.
Question 7(b)
A TV manufacturing company produces 2000 TV sets in a year for which it needs an equal number of tubes of a certain type. Each tube costs Rs 10 and the cost to hold a tube in stock in a year is Rs 2.40. Besides, the cost of placing an order is Rs150, which is not related to its size. i) Determine EOQ and total inventory cost.
ii) If the demand increase by 25% what is the new EOQ and the new Total Cost. Solution:
Consumption of Tube in a year = 2000 units = C
Cost of placing an order = Rs 150 = O
Purchase price per unit of Tube = Rs 10
Storage cost = Rs 2.4 = S
EOQ = √{2CO/S} =√{2*2000*150/2.4} = 500

Normal time = (Arithmetic Average of the Recorded time X Performance Rating Expressed in percentage with 100% as the ‘accepted’ performance) / 100
Standard Time = Normal Time / (1 – Total Allowance expressed as a fraction)
Therefore Standard Time = 30.71 / (1 – 0.20) = 38.38 minutes Working Time = 60 X 8 = 480 Minutes
No of piece can be made 480 / 38.38 = 12.50
Daily payment = Rs 150
Per piece rate = 150 /12.50 = Rs 12

5.Infrastructure  Rs 1015 Lakhs Rs 960 Lakhs 3
6. Political Climate 4 3 4
7. Union Attitude 3 3 3
8. Labour Attitude 2 4 2
Solution:
For selecting best site for plant locations by using Bridgement’s dimensional analysis. In this method we compare pairwise location in ratio with each other. R12 = Preference for location 1 / Preference for location 2
R12 = X11X12W X X21X22W X X31X32W
Now we compare Location A and location B
R12 = (350/415)3 X (25/23)2 X (375/315)3 X (215/240)4 X (1015/960)3 X (4/3)4 X (3/3)3 X (2/4)2 = 0.599 X 1.18 X 1.68 X 0.644 X 1.18 X 3.16 X 1X 0.25 = 0.719
R12<1
Therefore Location A is better than Location B.
Question 4 (c)
With routing as Machine I to Machine II, draw the bar chart of scheduling the following orders on this work center using Johnson’s rule for sequencing the jobs:
Processing time for
 Job A Job B Job C Job D Job E
Machine I 5 3 2 7 5
Machine II 7 2 7 1 9
Solution:
Set the sequence that will minimise the total processing time for the five jobs: Step 1 : The job with the shortest processing time is D, in Machine II (with a time of 1 hour).
Because it is at the second centre, schedule A last.
    D
Step 2 : There is a tie(at 2) for the shortest remaining job. We can place C, which was on the Machine I, first. Then B is placed in the last sequencing position.
C B A E D
Step 2 : There is again a tie(at 5) for the shortest remaining job. We can place A, which was on the Machine I, first. Then E is placed in the last sequencing position. The sequential times are:
Job C B A E D

1 unit of production of C is required 4 units of D, Therefore 4 units of production of C required 16 units of D.
(ii) That means 1 unit of product A required 16 units of D, so 10 units of product A required 160 units of D. (iii) If there is already an inventory of 10 units each of C and D, then the product planning as follows. Total C required 4010 = 30 units
D = 160 – 10 = 150 units.
Question 4. A manufacturing organization employs 220 people in the factory. The manufacturing is largely manual; therefore, man hours are a good measure of the capacity of the system. The factory currently works for a single shift of eight hours. The number of working days for the next six months is as follows: 24, 22,25,19,21 and 23. The company uses this information to plan its capacities. The demand for its product during the next six months is such that with the current level of employment, the company will have 80 percent capacity utilization. During the next six months, the number of working days remains the same but the demand is likely to go up by 35 percent. Under these circumstances, analyses the situation and answer the following questions:
(i) What is the total capacity available in the factory as of now? (ii) The company is considering three options to meet the implementing demand for capacity? a. Introduce two hours of overtime for the next six months. b. Introduce one hours of overtime for the first three months and two hours of idle time thereafter.
Solution:
