Abstract

Six products are manufactured cyclically in a plant to meet a known constant demand pattern. The same production facilities are used for each product so that only one is produced at a time. Before each product can be manufactured the plant has to be set-up and adjusted. During these set-up periods no production can take place. The demand rates, production rates, and set-up times associated with each product are shown in Table 7.1.
