Need to design new product
Organization design new product due to following reasons. 

To be in business for a long time. To satisfied the unfulfilled needs of the customers. If the existing product line become saturated. If the sales is on reject stage. If the company decide to enter new prospective business through diversification. If there exists too much competition in the existing product line. Due to continuous change in technology.

Solution: calculate the processing time needed in hours to produce product X.

Total 5100 Hrs. per year Hence Number of Machines required = Workload per year in hrs.) = 8hr. are required to produce 1200 Units Annual production capacity of one machine is (in standard hrs. Production capacity per machine in hrs.55 § 3 machines ./days * 250 days = 2000 hrs. = 5100/2000 = 2.

Ex. what is the rated output in terms of standard hours per week? Solution: Maximum number of hr. of machine * machine hrs worked per week = 10*6*8 = 480 hrs.75 = 360 hrs. If the utilization is 75% then number of hrs worked = 480 hrs. If the machines are utilized for 75% of the time at a system efficiency of 80% . * 0. Rated output = utilized hrs * System efficiency = 360 hrs * 0.

The capacity of the assembly line is 350 TVS per day of single shift . hence it is equal to the least of the sub assembly capacities i.e.

Failing quality and delivery commitment of the supplier if presently the item is brought. 2.When to take Make Or Buy Decision The following situations demand for the evaluation of make or buy decisions: 1. 3. 4. When the organization carries out value analysis or cost reduction programs. When the organization introduces new products. 5. The fluctuating demand for the company¶s products. The shortage of funds for investment in additional plant and equipment. .

Volume of production Cost analysis Utilization of production capacity Integration of production system Availability of manpower Secrecy or protection of patent. 4. 7. 9. 5.

Breakeven analysis Decision on whether to make or buy is mainly affected by the cost factor. TC B A Loss Profit VC FC C Units of sales per period . The cost of producing is calculated as follows. there are mainly two cost namely. for manufacturing a product. The sum of these two cost is known as the total cost of the product. We have to compare the cost of the manufacturing and the cost of the buying the require quantity of the products. fixed cost and variable cost. In the business organization.

120 +Rs. labor cost of Rs. 30 per unit. (i) (ii) What it would be profitable for the company to make the gears? Suppose the capacity could be used by another department for the production of some agricultural equipment that would cover its fixed cost and variable cost and contribute Rs. It will incur material cost of Rs 90 per unit. Cost to Make Variable cost /unit = material cost + labor cost +overhead cost = Rs.Problems in Make or Buy Decisions An automobile company has extra capacity that can be used to produce gears that the company has been buying for Rs. Which would be more advantageous. we assume that the unused capacity has alternative use. if the company makes the gears. demand over the next year is estimated at 4000 units. 30 = Rs. 90.40.120 per unit and variable overhead cost of Rs.000 Total cost =Rs. 2. 240 Total variable cost =(4000 units)*(240per unit) = Rs. 300 each.000 Fixed cost = Rs. gear production or agricultural equipment production? Solution: (i) In this part.200.000.000 to profit. The annual fixed cost associated with the unused capacity is Rs.1.000 . 240. 90 +Rs. 960.

Hence it is advisable to produce agricultural equipment using the existing capacity of the company and buy the gears from a supplier.200.000 0 Total cost (Rs. Cost to Buy Purchase cost (ii) In this section the company has the following alternatives a) Making the gears within the company b) Buy the gears from an outside suppliers and utilize the existing capacity of the company to manufacture agricultural equipment The cost calculation for each of the above alternatives is summarized in the following table: Make Gears Purchase Gears and make agricultural Equipments Total Variable cost (Rs.000 1.000 From the above table it is clear that the net cost of the second alternative is less than that of the first alternative. .) 960. 1.000 Contribution to profit 0 90. Hence making the gears is advantageous.200.) 1.000 Fixed cost (Rs.440.000 Therefore cost of making the gears is less than that of buying the gears from outside.300per unit) = Rs.200.000 Fixed cost =Rs.000 1.000 1. 240.200.

. ‡ Facilities Planner must be CREATIVE and COMPREHENSIVE in generating layout alternatives.Facility Layout ‡ Developing a facilities layout is a critical step in the facilities planning process.

Layout is effected by:      Centralized vs. & Supplies Fixed Path vs. Tooling. Decentralized Storage of WIP. Variable Path Handling Unit Load Size Degree of Automation Type and Level of Inventory and Control of Materials .

PRINCIPLES OF PLANT LAYOUT     Principle of integration: a good layout is one that integrate men.e. Principle of flow: A good layout is one such that material should flow or move in a forward direction and there should not be any back tracking. Principle of cubic space utilization: the good layout is one that utilize all the three dimension i. machines and materials and supporting services in order to make optimum utilization of resources. theft etc. as far as possible straight line movement should be preferred. security and satisfaction: a good layout is one that gives due consideration to workers safety and satisfaction and safeguards the plant and machinery against fire. . horizontal space (floor space). Principle of minimum distance: this principle is concern with the minimum movement of men. The layout should be highly flexible in enough in order to overcome the changes that takes place in future.  Principle of maximum flexibility: a good layout is one that can be altered without much cost and time.  Principle of safety. vertical space and overhead space. materials and material handling equipments.

RTIC. CAPP ± Rapid tool changing for minimizing setups and reducing lot sizes  .CAM. CAD.Handling and Storing ³Work-In-Process´ Issues ± Centralized versus decentralized storage ± Shop floor control and material tracking ± Reduced WIP inventory levels ± Controlled material movement to production areas ± Reduced damage due to handling and storage ± Automatic encoding of production data ± "Just-in-time" production ± Increasing levels of automation: CAE. MRP.

Handling and Storing ³Work-In-Process ‡ In-process handling includes movement of material. applies to material in a semi finished state of production. Raw Materials Work-in-process Finished Goods . ‡ In-process storage includes the storage of material. Typically. tooling. and supplies to and from production units. and supplies needed to support production. as well as handling at the workstation. tooling.

Handling and Storing ³Work-In-Process ‡ Rules of Thumb ± Handling less is best ± Maintain physical control of materials ± Eliminate. ± Pre-position material ‡ Design requirements for WIP handling system ± Establish control requirements ± Determine process flow methods ± Establish inventory points and levels ± Consider workplace layout ± Determine load increment and container design ± Evaluate WIP storage methods ± Determine distribution method ± Design control system . combine. and simplify ± Moving and/or storing material incurs costs.

. To increase the turnover of the material by accelerating its flow. To efficiently use the storage of space.Objectives of material handling Material handling have to focus on the following primary and secondary objectives:Primary objectives:    To save and assist personnel by making material handling safer and easier through better method and equipment. To reduce work in process. To minimize distance through which materials is to be moved. To reduce damage in materials. To improve the working conditions. To save time by speeding up operations. To enhance the morale of the personnel. To save materials. Secondary objectives:         To enhance the performance of machines.
