Consider a four-station line in which all stations consist of single machines. Station 2 has an average processing time of 10 minutes per job while the remaining stations have average processing times of 5 minutes per job. Answer the following under the assumption that process times are deterministic (as in the best case):

a. Draw the production line with process times and process rates for each station.

b. What is the bottleneck rate for the line?

c. What is the raw process time for the line?

Now consider the scenario where a second identical machine is added to station 2:

What is the bottleneck rate of the line?

What is the raw process time of the line?

If the WIP level for the line is set at 120 jobs, what is the average cycle time?
