Example of Production Rate

The turret lathe section contains six machines, all devoted to the production of the similar part. The section operates 10 shifts/wk. The number of hours per shift averages 8.0. Average production rate of each machine is 17 unit/hr. Calculate the weekly production capacity of the turret lathe section.

Solution

Given  Number of machines n = 6

Number of shifts per week S = 10

Number of hours per shift H = 8

Production rate Rp = 17

Production capacity = n x S x H x Rp

∴ PC = 6 (10) (8.0) (17) = 8160 output unit/wk
