h. If another person Wasadded, where is the logical place'? c. What effect would a mail order lab (where the glasses are made off site and returned in 5-7 days) have on the process? 10 A quoting department for a custom publishing house can complete 4 quotes per day, and there are 20 quotes in various stages in the department. Applying Little's Law, the current lead time for a quote is how many days? 11 A small barber shop has a single chair and an area for waiting, where only one person can be in the chair at a time, and no one leaves without getting their hair cut. So the system is roughly:

Entrance ---+ Wait ---+ Haircut ---+ Exit

Assume customers arrive at the rate of 10 per hour and stay an average of 0.5 hour. What is the average number of customers in the barber shop?

PROBLEM

12 Remember Mr. Rockness in Problem 2? He now retrains college professors. It is a much more challenging task but still involves five steps. He has worked hard to balance the line; however, there is a lot of variability. Each stage in the process now handles between one and six faculty members per hour depending on how bad the case is. If there is some inventory available for every position (do not worry about the start-up), what is the expected output per hour? (Assume that each stage is independent and that it is equally likely that one. two, three, four, five, or six faculty members get processed each hour at each stage.)"

After interpreting the problem, I chose a strategy and evaluated the progress. I took the trial and error approach. My first attempt was to have the man take the cat over and then the dog, but that didn’t work, the dog ate the cat. I then attempted to have the man take the mouse followed by the cat. Again that didn’t work, the cat ate the mouse. I then attempted to send the man with the dog first, but again the cat ate the mouse. After several unsuccessful approaches, I began looking at the problem in a different way. I decided to use heuristics as a solution strategy. Heuristics helps to simplify and solve problems, although it doesn’t guarantee a correct solution.…

* Waiting time for trucks: Inventory build up = arrival rate – processing rate = 1108 bbl – 600 bbl = 508 bbl at this rate the wet bins will be filled in 3500/508 = 6.89 hours. At the end of the day (12 hours) there will be 450*12=5400 bbl in inventory. Out of this 3,500 bbl will be in bins and rest 1,300 bbl will be in trucks. It will take 1,300/600=2.17 hours to empty the waiting trucks. Thus, inventory will start building from 6.89 hours to 14.17 hours. The average waiting time will be (14.17-6.89)/2=3.64 hours. On an average there will be 1300/75 = 17.33 trucks waiting. Thus, the total waiting time will be 17.33*3.64 = 63.08 hours.…
