Four products are produced in the facility described in Problem 2. The routing for these products and their forecasted production rates are
Suppose that all four products are produced in batches of size 50.
a. Convert this information into a from-to chart similar to Figure 11–4 but giving the number of materials handling trips per week between departments.
b. Suppose that the cost of transporting goods 1 foot is estimated to be $2. Using the from-to chart you determined in part (a), obtain a from-to chart giving materials handling cost per week between departments.
c. Develop an activity relationship chart for this facility based on the materials handling cost from-to chart you obtained in part (b). Use only the rankings A, E, I, O, U, with A being assigned to the highest cost and U the least.
d. Based on the results of parts (b) and (c), would you recommend a different layout for this facility?
A manufacturing facility consists of five departments: A, B, C, D, and E. At the current time, the facility is laid out as in Figure 11–10. Develop a from-to distance chart for this layout. Estimate the distance separating departments based on the flow pattern of the materials handling system in the figure. Assume that all departments are located at their centers as marked in Figure 11–10.
