Question

- A restaurant will operate 16 hours a day, 360 days a year. The
restaurant forecasts 300 customers an hour. The average order is 4
burgers, 2 orders of fries, and 4 12-oz. drinks. Management would
like to know:
**How many burger grills, how many fry machines, and how many soft drink dispensers should they order? Show your work.**

- To complete this problem, use the following effective
capacities:
- One grill cooks 12 burgers every 10 minutes.
- One fryer cooks 8 orders of fries in 6 minutes.
- One soft drink machine dispenses 1,200 oz. per hour.

Answer #1

Total No. of customers an hour = 300

No. of Burgers an hour ordered = 4 * 300 = 1200 burgers an hour

No. of french fries per hour = 2 * 300 = 600 orders

Amount of Drinks ordered per hour = 4 * 12 * 300 = 14400

Capacity of grill per hour = (12 burgers / 10 minutes) * 60 minutes = 72 burgers an hour

No. of grills required = No. of Burgers ordered per hour / Capacity of grill per hour = 1200 / 72 = 16.67 = 17 grills

Capacity of fryer per hour = (8 orders / 6 minutes) * 60 minutes = 80 order per hour

No. of fryers required = No. of french fries per hour / Capacity of fryer per hour = 600 / 80 = 7.5 fryers = 8 fryers

Capacity of soft drink machine = 1200 oz per hour

No of Soft drink machine required = Amount of Drinks ordered per hour / Capacity of soft drink machine = 14400 / 1200 = 12 machine

Hence, Management should order 17 burger grills, 8 fry machines, and 12 soft drink dispensers.
