2.23. An assembly line is being designed station will have one worker. Cycle time for ing demand is 40 time units. Using the dar Table 2.11 find an optimal (minimum number of workstations) solution. A zoning restriction exico such that tasks d and f must be performed in the same workstation. If your solution has more than 10 percent idle time, suggest alternatives that could be explored to improve efficiency. What ad. ditional data would be required to analyze these alternatives?
