Capacity Concept in Operations Management

Question

Consider a process that consists of two steps A and B, with capacities x and y units per hour, respectively. The capacity x is larger than the capacity y. Each unit is first processed by step A and then by step B. Consider two separate and different options to change this process:

I. The capacity of step A increases from x to 2x.

II. The capacity of step B increases from y to 2y.

Choose the only alternative that is unambiguously correct.

a) After option I is implemented, the capacity of the process increases to 2x.

b) After option II is implemented, the capacity of the process increases to 2y.

c) After option II is implemented, the capacity of the process increases to x.

d) Option II increases the capacity of the process more than option I.

    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
