□ Identify the constraint operation and determine the production capacity of a process
□ Calculate the throughput of a process and demonstrate how to apply the five steps for improving throughput
A small diner is open for lunch each day. The lunch counter seats a maximum of 12 customers at one time. The average time required for a customer to complete lunch 30 minutes. It takes 4 minutes of a server’s time to take care of a customer. There are two servers assigned to the counter. The cook in the kitchen can prepare an order in 1.5 minutes. Answer the following questions, assuming the diner is relatively full and operating (i.e., you are not at the start-up time).
a) What is the constraint in the diner? Show your work to support your answer
If the average meal costs $10 and the variable cost is $3 per meal, what is the maximum throughput (production capacity) of the diner per hour?
b) A new advertising campaign is estimated to increase the number of customers to 36 customers per hour. What are some ways the diner can accommodate this increase.
2. Decide How to Exploit the Constraint
Goldratt instructs the change agent to obtain as much capability as possible from a constraining component, without undergoing expensive changes or upgrades. An example is to reduce or eliminate the downtime of bottleneck operations.
3. Subordinate Everything Else
The non-constraint components of the system must be adjusted to a "setting" that will enable the constraint to operate at maximum effectiveness. Once this has been done, the overall system is evaluated to determine if the constraint has shifted to another component.
(2) From the perspective of physical determination, I show that quantum-physical indetermination is not at all in a position to explain autonomy, while from the perspective of systems theory physical determination and autonomy is...
