or the enterprise to enhance the capacity level and load with preserving more or
ders amf also need to maximize profit margin for the month of April. (Works, 2
017)
Answer the Questions:
1. The consideration in this report is composed of the customer’s demand decid
ed by the general manager of the company and maximum margin under the forc
es of plant capacity. Maximum profit must be as (34×4) + (30×2) + (60×3) + (25
×4).
("Mexicana Wireworks and Chase Manhattan Case Studies - Term Paper",
2017)
And the result will be as;
W0075c = 1100 untis(i.e.>=150), W0033c = 250 untis, W0005X = 0 untis,
W0007X = 600 untis (i.e.>= 600)
Maximum profit is $ 559900 (Mexicana Wire Works Ch.7 - Mexicana Wire Wo
rks Case Study Summary: According", 2017)
Customer’s demand
Plant Capacity
Orders
Product Name
Hours
No. of orders
W0075c >= 150 units
W0007x >= 600 units
Drawing = 4000
Extrusion = 4200
Winding = 2000
Packaging = 2300
X1 <= 1400x
X2 <= 250x
X3 <= 1510x
X4 <= 1116x

From the above table calculation Ron Garcia should suggest the availability of e
xtra number of hours drawing and extrusion department and allow the usage of
package hours completely.
2 : Disuss the need for temporary workers in the drawing deparment
4000 hours are present plant capacity for drawing department. With the of other
forces, of there is increasing in drawing capacity, that will increase cost and mini
mize profit. As of now, there are excessive capacity of about 1800 hours in dra
wing departmemt.
3. Sequence of plant layout
The plant layout described in given situation of this case is not in order accordin
g to overall process. The proficiency of plant can be increased by making the d
epartment closer to each other as;
Drawing dept. Extrusion dept. Winding dept. Inspection dept.
Packaging dept. Finished dept. Storage dept.
Conclusion :
It is analyzed from the case that the enterprise may get new sequence of plant
layout by modifyirg five departments and can get maximum profit in April. It ma
y help in overcoming the all limitatioms. ("Mexican Wire Works Case Study",
