! Assignment #1 !


! Due Date: October 18, 2016 Question 1. A manager wants to assign tasks to workstations to achieve an hourly output


rate of 33 units. Assume that the shop works 60 minutes per hour (i.e., no breaks).


(i) !


(ii) !




! Assign the tasks shown in the following precedence network (times are on the


nodes and are in minutes) to workstations using the following heuristic rules:


(i) ?Assign the task with the most followers.? (ii) Tiebreaker: ?Assign the task


with the longest time.?


What is the efficiency? ! Question 2. A worker?machine operation was found to involve 3.3 minutes of machine time


per cycle. In the course of 40 cycles of a stopwatch time study, the worker's time loading and


unloading the machine averaged 1.9 minutes per cycle, and the worker was given a rating of


120 percent. Assuming an allowance factor of 12 percent of task time, determine the standard


time for this operation (including the machine time). ! Assignment # 2 Due Date: October 25, 2016 !

Assignment 3. Due Date: November 8, 2016 !


A small company makes three similar products, which all follow the same


three-step process, consisting of milling, inspection, and drilling. Product


A requires 12 minutes of milling, 5 minutes for inspection, and 10 minutes


of drilling per unit; product B requires 10 minutes of milling, 4 minutes


for inspection, and 8 minutes of drilling per unit; and product C requires


8 minutes of milling, 4 minutes for inspection, and 16 minutes of drilling.


The company has 20 hours available during the next period for milling, 15


hours for inspection, and 24 hours for drilling. Product A contributes $2.40


per unit to profit, B contributes $2.50 per unit, and C contributes $3.00


per unit. Formulate an LP to determine the mix of products in order to


maximize total contribution to profits for the period. Solve it using Excel's


Solver. Then, find the range of optimality for the profit coefficient of


each variable. ! !
