How long will it take BBCC to fill a rush order? 2) What is the bottleneck resource, and what is the Takt Time in minutes per dozen? 3) What is the maximum rate at which BBCC can produce cookies in dozens per hour? How many orders can BBCC fill in a night, assuming that BBCC is open four hours each night? 4) How much of Billy and Bob’s valuable time will it take to fill each order? What is the production cost in $/dozen? 5) How much labor time is required for orders of different sizes? Should any discount be given to students who order two dozen cookies, three dozen, or more? If so, how much? 6) What is the production capacity on days when Billy is working by himself without Bob’s help? What is the takt time on such days? 7) If Billy is working with Bob and BBCC rents one extra oven what will be the production capacity and the Takt time? How much would BBCC be willing to pay to rent an additional oven? Let’s consider these questions in turn. The first question simply asks for the cycle time. Since this is a serial system, meaning the steps progress directly from first to last, this is simply the sum of the time spent at each step so Cycle time = 6 + 2 + 1 + 9 + 5 + 2 + 1 = 26 minutes.
