Example text

Generally, though, it is most efficient to design operations to be as repetitive as possible. Many job shops nevertheless have some small proc- Layout of Facilities 39 esses that are very repetitive; these can be handled in much the same way as mass production systems for greater efficiency. Cellular manufacturing (or group technology) systems set up mini–assembly lines called cells to handle those parts of the operations of a job shop or intermittent production system that are fairly repetitive.

Here it turns out that there are indeed two solutions which require only 4 work stations: ABG, FH, EI, CDJ, or FG, ABH, EI, CDJ. The priority ranking system, however, will generally give solutions that are optimal or very close to optimal, and it is among the easiest to apply, especially for problems that are larger than this example. Utilization Rate A quick calculation will tell what proportion of the production facility’s capacity is being utilized for a given solution. The utilization rate is just the ratio of the time required per unit to the time available per unit.

Cost savings can result both in the operations process itself and in the customers’ time when the layout is designed for quick throughput. Especially in job shops and service operations, saving the customers’ time can be a powerful marketing tool. Job Shop System In a job shop, each job is basically different from the others, so there is no single path that jobs follow through the system. Therefore, a job shop does not lend itself to an assembly line arrangement. It is more logical and convenient to set up departments according to the function, or process, that each department performs.
