(c) NONCRITICAL ACTIVITIES AND THEIR SLACK TIMES ARE:
WAITING LINES
1. A homemadeice cream shop has noticed that, often, potential customers will stop outside the store, assess the length of the waiting line, and then decide whether to go in or just pass by. This kind of behavior is known as reneging. True / False
Answer: False
2. The owner of a desktop publishing company has 20 loyal clients who periodically require her services. The owner has a finite customer population. True / False
Answer: True
3. A PC accessory discount store often has customers who leave the checkout line before being served because of excessive waiting times. This type of customer behavior in waiting lines is known as balking. True / False
4. A Laundromat where there are 10 washing machines and 10 drying machines is an example of multiplechannel, multiple phase. True / False
5. A drivethrough system of a fastfood restaurant where customers form a single queue and the first server takes orders, then the second server takes the payments for the food, then the third server hands over the ordered food is an example of multiplechannel, single phase. True / False
ECONOMIC ORDER QUANTITY MODEL (INVENTORY MGMT & CONTROL): BASIC EOQ MODEL IS Order Quantity Q =
(1) Items purchased from a vender cost $20 each, and the forecast for the next year?s demand is 1,000 units. The cost of placing an order is estimated to be $5 every time an order is placed. Storage costs are $4 per unit per year. What quantity should be ordered to minimize inventory related costs?
(2) Ray?s Satellite Emporium wishes to determine the best order size of their best selling satellite dish (model TS111). Ray has estimated the annual demand for this model at 1,000 units. His cost to carry one unit is $100 per year per unit, and he has estimated that each order costs $25 to place. Based on the EOQ model, how many units should Ray order each time he places an order?

(3) Sally?s Silk Screening produces special Tshirts that are primarily sold on the Halloween day. She must decide how many to produce for the coming Halloween. During the event itself, which lasts one day, Sally can sell a Tshirt for $20 apiece. However, when the event ends, any unsold Tshirts are sold for $4 apiece. It costs Sally $8 to make a specialty Tshirt. Using Sally?s estimated distribution of demand, how many Tshirts should she produce for the coming event?
DEMAND Probability COMPUTE COMULATIVE PROBABILITY
300 .05
400 .10
500 .40
600 .30
700 .10
800 .05
Hint: What is the optimal service level? What is the cumulative probability distribution?
(4) The Lake Nocee Department Store has an opportunity to purchase a special shipment of Xmas tableware at $28 a set. These sets of tableware are to be sold for $35 as a special promotion during the store?s 40^{th} anniversary sale. Nocee must purchase the items in units of a dozen sets. Tableware is not part of the store?s normal product lines, so if items are not sold during the Xmas cum 40^{th} anniversary, they will be sold in the Bargain Basement for $22.20 per set. A sales consultant has estimated the following distribution of demand.
Demand (Dozens) Probability
4 or less 0
5 0.10
6 0.15
7 0.25
8 0.20
9 0.15
10 0.10
11 0.05
12 0
Determine the optimal order quantity for Nocee regarding this item.
Aggregate Planning
Problem # 1
Pomegranate Juice, Inc., produces bottled pomegranate juice. A planner has developed an aggregate forecast for demand (in cases) for the next six months as:
Month 1 2 3 4 5 6 Total
Forecast 400 480 560 720 640 500
Costs:
Output
Regular time = $10 per case
Regular production capacity = 500 cases per month
Overtime production cost = $16 per case
Subcontracting cost = $20 per case
Inventory Holding cost = $1 per/case/month on avg
Beginning inventory = 0
Develop an aggregate production plan using the following guideline and compute the total cost for the plan
(a) Policy ? level production plan, supplemented by inventory and overtime as needed
