Refer to Example 14.1 as the basis for this problem. Meritor hires a team of consultants. The consultants suggest a partial robotic automation as well as an increase in safety stock to 12.5 percent. Meritor implements these suggestions. The result is an increase in efficiency in both the fabrication of muffler assembly and the making of catalytic converters. The muffler assembly fabrication cell now averages 16 assemblies per hour and the lead time has been decreased to two hours’ response time for a batch of 10 catalytic converters.
