starting the new batch of jobs that would be in her in-tray that morning. She found five jobs, the details of
which are shown in Table 1.

five-day week with no weekend working, calculate the total time in process, total lateness, average time in
process and average lateness if Sarah adopts;
(a) The first-in-first-out rule,
