Required:

  1. For each month, compute the following:
    1. The throughput time.
    2. The delivery cycle time.
    3. The manufacturing cycle efficiency (MCE).
  2. Evaluate the company’s performance over the last four months.
  3. Refer to the move time, process time, and so forth, given above for month 4.
    1. Assume that in month 5 the move time, process time, and so forth, are the same as in month 4, except that through the use of Lean Production the company is able to completely eliminate the queue time during production. Compute the new throughput time and MCE.
    2. Assume in month 6 that the move time, process time, and so forth, are again the same as in month 4, except that the company is able to completely eliminate both the queue time during production and the inspection time. Compute the new throughput time and MCE.
