## Process Analysis

** ****Question 1**

500 pages of copes of white paper, and 200 pages on pink paper. Total of 700 pages

Rate of copying= 25 pages per minute

If 1 minute—-> 25 pages can be copied

Therefore, 700 pages?

=28 minutes

Setup time=5 minutes

Time for color change =2 minutes

The capacity requirement for the copy machine center for this job? = 28+5+2= 35 minutes

**Question 2**

Stapling= 10 minutes

Three-hole drilling= 20 minutes

The total time taken for the job is 10+20+35= 65 minutes

Labor costs charged on total standard time multiplied by $6 per hour.

Cost for the job?

If I hour (60 minutes) ——> $6

Therefore, 65 minutes?

= $6.5

**Question 3**

Cycle rate is the completion rate of things

1 work center takes 65 minutes

Therefore, 3 work centers will be =21.67 minutes

**Question 4**

The maximum number of such jobs can be produced in a 40 hour week.

If 700 page of such a job takes 65 minutes

Therefore, 40 hours (240 minutes) will be?

= 2584.62 pages

Therefore, a minimum number of pages will be 2584 pages, and the maximum will be 2585 pages.

One such work is equivalent to 700 pages

Therefore, 2585 pages will be equivalent to;

= 4 such work

1 such job approximately takes $6.5

Therefore, 4 such jobs will take

**Question 5**

Capacity utilization is the capacity percentage actually used in fulfilling the demand

Capacity utilization=

Demand is 2585 pages

Capacity 2585 pages

= 1

**Question 6**

*Problem 3*

Cycle rate is the completion rate of things

1 work center takes 65 minutes

Therefore, 3 work centers with 2 machines will be = 10.83 minutes

* **Problem 4*

The maximum number of such jobs can be produced in a 40 hour week.

If 700 pages of such a job take 65 minutes in one machine

Therefore, 2 machines will be 1400 pages of such job in 65 minutes

If 1400 pages take 65 minutes

Therefore, 40 hours (240 minutes) will be?

= 5169.23 pages

Therefore, a minimum number of pages will be 5169 pages, and the maximum will be 5170 pages.

One such work is equivalent to 700 pages, and in 2 machines it is equivalent to 1400 pages

Therefore, 5170 pages will be equivalent to;

= 4

4× 2 machines = 8 such jobs

** **

** ****Question 7**

Throughput time is the elapsed time in processing an item from the start to its completion

*Problem 3*

1 work center takes 65 minutes

Each of the copying machines in the 3 work centers works independently each taking 65 minutes in throughput time

*Problem 4*

If 700 pages of such job take 65 minutes in one machine. The machines operate independently each using 40 hours in the whole week as throughput time

**Question 8**

*Problem 3*

1 batch of 700 pages takes 65 minutes

When the batched is doubled, there will be 1400 pages

Rate of copying= 25 pages per minute

If 1 minute—-> 25 pages can be copied

Therefore, 1400 pages?

=56 minutes

Setup time=5 minutes

Time for color change =2 minutes

A doubled batch of work will take = 56+5+2= **63 minutes**

Stapling= 10 minutes

Three-hole drilling= 20 minutes

The total time taken for the job is 10+20+63= **93 minutes**

Cycle rate is the completion rate of things

1 batch takes 93 minutes to complete

Therefore, 3 work centers with doubled batches will be =**15.5 minutes**

*Problem 4*

The maximum number of such jobs can be produced in a 40 hour week.

I batch has 700 pages and when doubled it become 1400 pages

If 1400 pages of such a job take 93 minutes

Therefore, 40 hours (240 minutes) will be?

= 3612.90 pages

Therefore, a minimum number of pages will be 3612 pages, and the maximum will be 3613 pages.

One such work is equivalent to 700 pages

Therefore, 2585 pages will be equivalent to;

= 6 such work

1 such job approximately takes $6.5

Therefore, 6 such jobs will take

**Question 9**

Inventory turnover rate is an efficiency ratio that indicates how inventory is managed effectively by comparing the costs of the sold goods with the mean inventory for a certain period of time

Inventory turnover rate=

= 2.5

**Question** 10

Yield is the percentage of products that has no defects

Suppose 750 sheets of paper were required to complete the job

700 were used for the job

Therefore, yield = ×100 =93.3%

Scrap rate is the percentage of failed materials or assemblies that cannot be restored or repaired and therefore discarded.

750-700= 50

Therefore, scrap rate is = ×100 =6.7%

**Question 11**

As a customer, to copy the center’s products and service the criteria that I will apply in the evaluation of their quality is based on four factors. The first one is the prices they charge for the services they provide. Secondly, I will look at the quality factor of their services if they are of high standards and satisfies me fully. Thirdly, I will look at their flexibility. This implies whether they can adapt to any changes due to the needs of the customers. Lastly, I will evaluate their dependability and whether their services are reliable and can be depended on.
