C. Wet berries are 70% of all berries.
D. Holding bins 17-24 are dedicated to wet berries.
E. Capacity of each of five dumpers is 600 bbl/hr.
F. Capacity for Dechaffers and Separators are not divided for dry and wet berries. G. There are 20 peak days in one year, where there is truck waiting happened. H. Truck Drivers are paid by $18/hr
Please prepare the answers to the following questions:
1. Analyze the current process. [Using the process flow map, available in the Excel file associated with the assignment, of the current process at Receiving Plant #1, mark the capacity and utilization of each of the operations. Show the flows of wet and dry berries separately.]
2. On a busy day, what is RP#1’s current maximum throughput rate? 3. Assuming that processing starts at 7 am on a “busy” day, present the situation during such a day, by constructing an inventory build-up diagram for bins and trucks. 4. What are the possible capital investments considered by NCC? 5. Quantify the costs and benefits for NCC’s investment for the fifth Kiwanee dumper in 1980.
6. Quantify the costs and benefits of “converting dry berry holding bins into wet/dry berry holding bins.”
