Question

Astro Clothing Company wants to reduce the length of time between a customer placing an online order and when that order is actually shipped. Astro Clothing proivdes the following data from operations:

Inspection time | 0.6 | days |

Wait time (from order to start of production) | 15.5 | days |

Process time | 3.3 | days |

Move time | 1.0 | days |

Queue time | 3.8 | days |

**Required:**

1. Compute the throughput time. **(Round your answer to 1
decimal place.)**

2. Compute the manufacturing cycle efficiency (MCE) for the
quarter. **(Round your percentage answer to nearest whole
percent.)**

3. What percentage of the throughput time was spent in
non–value-added activities? **(Round your percentage answer
to nearest whole percent.)**

4. Compute the delivery cycle time. **(Round your
intermediate calculations and final answer to 1 decimal
place.)**

5. If by using Lean Production all queue time during production is eliminated, what will be the new MCE?

Answer #1

Throughput Time = 3.3 days + 0.6 days + 1.0 days + 3.8 days = 8.7
days

2. Value Added Time = Process Time = 3.3 days

MCE = Value Added Time / Throughput Time = 3.3/8.7 = 0.3793 =
37.93%

3. Percentage of the throughput time was spent in non–value-added
activities = 100-37.93 = 62.07%

4. Delivery Cycle time = wait Time + Throughput Time = 15.5+8.7 =
24.2 days

5. New Throughput Time = Process time + Inspection Time + Move Time
= 3.3 days + 0.6 days + 1.0 days = 4.9 days

New MCE = Value Added Time / New Throughput Time = 3.3/4.9 = 0.6735
= 67.35%
