    Hi,
    I need help wil the following:

    suppose i have a process flow chart as the following:

    Workstation A (time per unit= 7 min) => defect rate=8%
    Workstation B (time per unit= 6min) => defect rate= 12%
    Workstation C(time per unit= 8min) => no defect

    I attached the flow diagram,
    i need to answer the following:

    1. What is the capacity of this process (per hour)?
    2. Where is the bottleneck?
    3. Is the utilization of the bottleneck step 100%? If so, why? If not, why not?
    4. What is the yield of the process (the ratio of good finished product to items started in the process)?

    How i compute the capacity in with the defect rates?

    Thanks

    @nooon – please look elsewhere for someone to do your homework for you.

    @MBBinWI
    I have the answers by the way, but i need to understand how i can compute it.
    so it is not the matter of doing homeworks!

    thanks!

    @nooon – so how did you get the answers if you don’t know how to compute them?
