Capacity Concept in Operations Management

Question

A manufacturer produces shirts in two steps. The first step, cutting fabric, is an automated batch process (which requires no labor) that takes 1 hr per batch, regardless of the size of the batch. The second step is sewing, with a capacity of 50 shirts/hr (10 workers, each taking 12 mins per shirt). The manufacturer is currently using a batch size of 30. Suppose the batch size is increased to 60 shirts. Choose the only correct alternative.

a) The capacity of the overall process is doubled.

b) The capacity of the overall process is 50 shirts/hr.

c) The capacity of the overall process does not change.

d) None of the above.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
