Production Capacity of Production process

Here comes the most important of all questions what would be the production capacity of plant at the given process flow. Well there could be two different interpretations as:

1. The different kinds of products that could be produced in a given time frame - since this would involve full machine set up for all process type and processing time this would be consuming and wasting a lot of productive time. As displayed through diagrammatic view below each new product will consume a time of 22 minutes. Hence in 8 hours it would produce 22 products in total.

2. The more realistic and appropriate capacity analysis would be the amount of units produced in a given time frame for a single product category since it would involve a single time machine set-up and will help in dealing with effect of bottlenecks on capacity and options to come over that bottleneck. If we go by mentioned way the no. of units that would be produced would be as per details pictorially depicted below:

Each colour four process types in normal fashion and each square equals 1 minutes. As depicted above initial set up takes 22 minutes and after that all production run for single unit output would consume 15 minutes in total and in every 6 additional minutes we would get one output unit. This way it leads to 78 completed units of single product type in duration of 8 hours. As is well evident that one unit could have been obtained every 2 minutes given the bottleneck of shaping & edging process be solved.
