It also illustrates the connection between cycle time and capacity. Your team must produce a case document that addresses the following questions:
What is the cycle time of the 19-station line? What is its efficiency?
- On the basis of the task descriptions, develop a precedence graph for the assembly tasks. Using these precedence relationships, develop a list of recommendations for rebalancing the line in order to improve its performance.
- What would be the impact on the line’s efficiency if your recommendations were implemented?
