2.1.2 A computer recycler sel1s computer enclosures to a computer remanufacturer. To meet monthly expected demand. the remanufactLuer needs 2,000 enclosures. The lecycler utilizes a four-step clisassembly process $.ith scrap rates given as follows: ch- 0.08, cl2: 0.05, r$: 0.05, and d,,:0.03. Hou.'many compLlters mLlst the reclcler receive each month in order to meet the remanufacturer's demand? 2.13 Consider a simple three-step rlanr-rflacturing process as illustratecl in the given figure. Assuraing that den-rand is 1,000 units, what is the required input to meet demanci? You'1l note that the required input is the same if the scrap rates are reversed fot' processes 1 and 3. Assune that the scrap cost is $5 at process 1. S10 at process 2, and lai sclap cost fbr the given system and the system q,here the scrap rates are reversed. Which system would be preferred?
$15 at process 3. The defectlve rates are 3o/0,50/0, and 7ol0, respectively. Compute the to-
