PA 7-9 (Algo) Bruno Fruscalzo decided to setup... Bruno Fruscalzo decided to set up a small production facility in Sydney to sell to the local restaurants who want to offer gelato on t dessert menu. To start simple, he would offer only three flavors of gelato: fragola (strawberry), chocolato (chocolate), and bacio (chocolate with hazelnut). After a short time, he determined his demand and setup times, as shown in the table below. Bacio Demand (kg/hour) Setup time (minutes) Fragola Chocolato 15 35 25 15 Bruno first produces a batch of fragola, then a batch of chocolato, then a batch of bacio, and then he repeats that sequence. For example, after producing bacio and before producing fragola, he needs 35 minutes to set up the ice cream machine, but he needs only 15 minutes to switch from chocolato to bacio. When running, his ice cream machine produces at the rate of 50 kgs per hour no matter which flavor it is producing (and, of course, it can produce only one flavor at a time). (Round your final answer to nearest whole number.) Suppose they operate with a production cycle of 210 kgs (105 kg of fragola, 70 kgs of chocolato, 4. and 35 kgs of bacio). What is the capacity of the gelato-making process (in kgs per hr)? kgs per hour (Do not round intermediate calculations. Enter your answer as a percentage rounded to 1 decimal place.) Suppose they operate with a production cycle of 210 kgs (105 kg of fragola, 70 kgs of chocolato, W. and 35 kgs of bacio). What is the utilization of the gelato-making process? (Do not round intermediate calculations. Round your answer to 2 decimal places.) Suppose they operate with a production cycle of 210 kgs (105 kg of fragola, 70 kgs of chocolato, and 35 kgs of bacio). What is the average inventory of chocolato? (Round your answer to 1 decimal place.) Suppose Bruno wants to minimize the amount of each flavor produced at one time while still satisfying the demand for each of the flavors. (He can choose a different quantity for each flavor.) If we define a batch to be the quantity produced in a single run of each flavor, how many kgs should he produce in each batch?

a. The capacity of the gelato-making process Time (In hours) Setup Time (Fragola) 35 min 0.58 Production (Fragola) 105 kg Production Rate - 50 kg per Hr 2.1 Set
