Consider a bagel store selling three types of bagels that are produced according to the process flow diagram outlined below. We assume the demand is 180 bagels a day, of which there are 30 grilled veggie, 110 veggie only, and 40 cream cheese. Assume that the workday is 10 hours long and each resource is staffed with one worker.
Moreover, we assume the following Processing times:
Processing times are independent of which bagel type is processed at a resource (for example, cutting a bagel takes the same time for a cream cheese bagel as for a veggie bagel).
a. Where in the process is the bottleneck?
b. How many units can the process produce within one hour, assuming the product mix has to remain constant?
