**Practice: A Production System Manufacturing Two Products, P**and Q $90 / unit $100 / unit Q: P: 60 units / week 110 units / week D D Purchased Part 10 min. 5 min. $5 / unit C B C 10 min. 5 min. 25 min. B A A 15 min. 10 min. 10 min. RM1 RM2 RM3 $20 per $20 per $25 per unit unit unit Time available at each work center: 2,400 minutes per week. Operating expenses per week: $6,000. All the resources cost the same.**1. Identify The Constraint(s)**Contribution Margin: P($45), Q($55) Market Demand: P(110), Q(60) Can we satisfy the demand? Resource requirements for 110 P’s and 60 Q’s: • Resource A: 110 (15) + 60 (10) = 2250 minutes • Resource B: 110(10) + 60(35) = 3200 minutes • Resource C: 110(15) + 60(5) = 1950minutes • Resource D: 110(10) + 60(5) = 1400 minutes**2. Exploit the Constraint : Find the Throughput World’s**Best Solution Resource B is Constrained - Bottleneck Product P Q Profit $ 45 55 Resource B needed (min) 10 35 Profit per min of Bottleneck 45/10 =4.555/35 =1.6 Per unit of bottleneck Product P creates more profit than Product Q Produce as much as P, then Q**2. Exploit the Constraint : Find the World’s Best Solution**to Throughput For 110 units of P, need 110 (10) = 1100 min. on B, leaving 1300 min. on B, for product Q. Each unit of Q requires 35 minutes on B. So, we can produce 1300/35 = 37.14 units of Q. We get 110(45) +37.14(55) = 6993 per week. After factoring in operating expense ($6,000), we make $993 profit.**2. Exploit the Constraint : Find the World’s Best Solution**to Throughput • How much additional profit can we make if market for P increases from 110 to 111; by 1 unit. • We need 1(10) = 10 more minutes of resource B. • We need to subtract 10 min of the time allocated to Q and allocate it to P. • For each unit of Q we need 35 min of resource B. • Our Q production is reduced by 10/35 = 0.29 unit. • One unit increase in P generates $45. But $55 is lost for each unit reduction in Q. Therefore if market for P is 111 our profit will increase by 45(1)-55(0.29) = $29.**Practice: LP Formulation**Decision Variables x1 : Volume of Product P x2 : Volume of Product Q Resource A 15 x1 + 10 x2 2400 Resource B 10 x1 + 35 x2 2400 Resource C 15 x1 + 5 x2 2400 Resource D 10 x1 + 5 x2 2400 Market for P x1 110 Market for Q x2 60 Objective Function Maximize Z = 45 x1 +55 x2 -6000 Nonnegativity x1 0, x2 0**Practice: Optimal Solution**Continue solving the problem, by assuming the same assumptions of 20% discount for the Japanese market.**A Practice on Sensitivity Analysis**• What is the value of the objective function? Z= 45(?) + 55(37.14)-6000! • 2400(0)+ 2400(1.571)+2400(0) +2400(0)+110(29.286)+ 60(0) =6993 • Is the objective function Z = 6993? • 6993-6000 = 993**A Practice on Sensitivity Analysis**• How many units of product P? • What is the value of the objective function? • Z= 45(???) + 55(37.14)-6000 = 993. • 45X1= 4950 • X1 = 110**Step 4 : Elevate the Constraint(s). Do We Try To Sell In**Japan? Even without increasing capacity of B, we can increase our profit. $/Constraint Minute 4.5 1.57 2.7 1**2. Exploit the Constraint : Find the World’s Best Solution**to Throughput For 110 units of P, need 110 (10) = 1100 min. on B, leaving 1300 min. on B, for product P in Japan. Each unit of PJ requires 10 minutes on B. So, we can produce 1300/10 = 130 units of PJ. We get 110(45) +130(27) = $8460 - $6000 = $2460 profit. Check if there is another constraint that would not allow us to collect that much profit. Let’s see.**1. Identify The Constraint(s)**Contribution Margin: P($45), PJ($27) Market Demand: P(110), PJ(infinity) Can we satisfy the demand? Resource requirements for 110 P’s and 130 PJ’s: • Resource A: 110 (15) + 130 (15) =3600 minutes • Resource B: 110(10) + 130(10) = 2400 minutes • Resource C: 110(15) + 130(15) = 3600minutes • Resource D: 110(10) + 130(10) = 2400 minutes • We need to use LP to find the optimal Solution.**Step 4 : Exploit the Constraint(s).**Not $2460 profit, but $1345. The $6000 is included. Let’s buy another machine B at investment cost of $100,000, and operating cost of $400 per week. Weekly operating expense $6400. How soon do we recover investment?**Step 4 : Elevate the Constraint(s). New Constraint**Original Profit: $993 No Machine but going to Japan: $1345 profit. Buy a machine B: $2829 profit. The $6400 is included. Going to Japan has no additional cost. Buying additional machine has initial investment and weekly operating costs. $2829-$1345 = $1484 $100,000/$1484 = 67.4 weeks**Buying a machine A at the same cost**Also add one machine A. Initial investment 100,000. Operating cost $400/week. From $2829 to $3533 = $3533 - $2829 = $704. The $6800 included.. $100,000/$704 = 142 weeks Now B & C are a bottleneck
