PA 7-5 (Algo) Keuka Studies Does Custom Metal Sculptures... Keuka Studies Does Custom Metal Sculptur

PA 7-5 (Algo) keuka Studies does custom metal sculptures... Keuka Studies does custom metal sculptures of horses and other animals. A horse sculpture is composed of numerous parts. They use a lathe to construct two types of parts. The "Body" part is used to support the torso of the horse and the "Leg" part is used to support the legs. Each horse sculpture needs 1 Body part and 4 Leg parts. Switching between either of the types of parts requires 25 minutes. Once ready to produce, the lathe produces a Body part in 3 minutes and a single Leg part in 1 minutes. The lathe only makes horse parts. For parts (a)-(d) assume Keuka operates a cyclic schedule in which they make 180 Body parts and then 720 Leg parts. Furthermore, assume the lathe is the bottleneck. Round your answer to 3 decimal places. a. What is the maximum number of horse sculptures Keuka can make per hour? Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percentage rounded to 2 decimal places. b. What is the utilization (%) of the lathe? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places Suppose Keuka is demand-constrained and they have 1 worker who is able to assemble a horse sculpture in 15 minutes. What is the average inventory of Body parts? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Suppose Keuka is demand constrained and they have 1 worker who is able to assemble a horse sculpture in 15 minutes. What is the average inventory of Legs? e. Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Suppose Keuka is demand-constrained and they have 1 worker who is able to assemble a horse sculpture in 15 minutes. If Keuka designs a cyclic schedule for the lathe, how many Body parts should they make in each batch so as to minimize inventory while not constraining the flow through assembly? Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places. Suppose Keuka is demand-constrained and they have 1 worker who is able to assemble a horse sculpture in 15 minutes. If Keuka designs a cyclic schedule for the lathe, how many Legs should they make in each batch so as to minimize inventory while not constraining the flow through assembly?

Answer a: Cycle time of cyclic schedule = (25*2) + (180*3+720*1) = 1310 minutes Cycle time in hours = 1310/60 = 21
