# Ch 3 Manufacturing Models

and Metrics

Sections:
1. Mathematical Models of Production Performance
2. Manufacturing Costs

1
Why use metrics

## “A system of related measures that facilitates the

quantification of some particular characteristic”

##  To track performance in successive periods,

 Try out new technologies and systems to determine their
merits, identify their problems,
 To compare alternative methods, and
 To make good decisions.

2
Production Concepts and
Mathematical Models

##  Production rate Rp for an individual processing or

assembly operation is usually expressed as an hourly rate,
that is, number of work units completed per hour (pc/hr).
 Cycle time Tc is defined as the time that one work unit
spends being processed or assembled. It is the time
between when one work unit begins processing or
assembly and when the next unit begins.

3
Production Concepts and
Mathematical Models

## Production performance metrics:

 Production capacity PC
 Utilization U
 Availability A
 Work-in-progress WIP

4
Operation Cycle Time

## Typical cycle time for a production operation:

Tc = To + Th + Tth
where
Tc = cycle time (min/pc),
To = processing time for the operation (min/pc),
production machine), and
Tth = tool handling time (min/pc) (e.g., time to change tools)

5
Production Rate (batch/job shop/flow)

Batch production:
Batch time Tb = Tsu + QTc
where
Tb= batch processing time (min)
Tsu= setup time to prepare for the batch (min)
Q= batch quantity (pc)
Tc = cycle time per work unit (min/cycle)

## Average production time per work unit Tp

Tp = Tb/Q= Tsu/Q + Tc

## Hourly production rate Rp = 60/Tp 6

Production Rate (batch/job shop/flow)

## Job shop production:

For Q = 1, Tp = Tsu + Tc
For Q > 1, Tp is determined as in batch production

Mass production:
Rp  Rc = 60/Tc since Tsu/Q  0 (Q is very large)
where
Rc = operation cycle rate of the machine (pc/hr)
Tc = operation cycle time (min/pc)

7
Production Rate (batch/job shop/flow)

## Flow line production:

Bottleneck station is the station with the largest operation
time (with highest utilization)
Tc = Tr + Max To
Tc = cycle time of the production line (min/cycle)
Tr = time to transfer work units between workstations each
cycle (min/cycle)
Max To = operation time at the bottleneck station
(min/cycle)

Rc = 60/Tc
Rc = theoretical (ideal) production rate (cycles/hr)
8
Production Capacity

## “Max rate of output that a production facility is able to produce

under a given set of assumed operating conditions”

Operating conditions:
 Number of shifts per day
 Number of days per week
 Employment levels

## A work center is a manufacturing system in the plant typically

consisting of one worker and one machine.

9
Production Capacity

Plant capacity for facility in which parts are made in one operation (no = 1):
PC = n Sw Hsh Rp
where
PC = weekly plant capacity (units/wk)
n = number of work centers working in parallel
Sw = number of shifts per week
Hsh = hr/shift
Rp = hourly production rate of each work center (output units/hr)

10
Production Capacity

Plant capacity for facility in which parts require multiple operations (no > 1):
nSw H sh R p
PCw =
no
where no = number of operations in the routing

11
Production Capacity

This capacity model assumes that all n machines are producing 100% of
the time and there are no bottleneck operations due to variations in
process routings to inhibit smooth flow of work through the plant.

There are some operations that are fully utilized while other operations
occasionally stand idle waiting for work.

## That is, utilization varies.

12
Utilization and Availability
Q
Utilization: U =
PC
where Q = quantity actually produced, and PC = plant capacity

## Utilization can be assessed for an entire plant, a single machine in the

plant or any other productive resource.

13
Utilization and Availability

MTBF  MTTR
Availability: A =
MTBF
where MTBF = mean time between failures, and
MTTR = mean time to repair
“a common measure for reliability of equipment”

14
Availability -
MTBF and MTTR Defined

15
noj

## MLT j   Tsuji  Q jTcji  Tnoji 

where i 1
MLTj = manufacturing lead time for part or product j (min)
Tsuji = setup time for operation i (min)
Qj = quantity of part or product j in the batch being processed (pc)
Tcji = operation cycle time for operation i (min/pc)
Tnoji = non-operation time (handling, temporary storage, inspections)
associated with operation i (min)

## “the total time required to process a given part/product through the

plant including any lost time due to delays, time spent in storage,
reliability problems, and so on”

16

## MLT = no (Tsu + QTc + Tno)

where
no = number of operations,
Tsu = setup time,
Q = batch quantity,
Tc = cycle time per part, and
Tno = non-operation time (handling, temporary storage, inspections)

17

## Job shop when Q=1

MLT = no (Tsu + Tc + Tno)

## Mass production when Q

MLT = no QTc

Flow line
MLT = no (Tr + Max To) = no Tc

18
Work-In-Process

AU  PC  MLT  Q  MLT 
WIP = 
Sw H sh Sw H sh
where WIP = work-in-process, pc;
A = availability,
U = utilization,
PC = plant capacity, pc/wk;
MLT = manufacturing lead time, wk;
Sw = shifts per week,
Hsh = hours per shift, hr/shift
“quantity of parts or products currently located in the factory that are
either being processed or between processing operations”
“the inventory in the state of being transformed from raw material to
finished product” 19
Costs of Manufacturing Operations

##  Two major categories of manufacturing costs:

1. Fixed costs - remain constant for any output level
2. Variable costs - vary in proportion to production
output level
 Adding fixed and variable costs
TC = FC + VC(Q)
where TC = total costs,
FC = fixed costs (e.g., building, equipment, taxes),
VC = variable costs (e.g., labor, materials, utilities),
Q = output level.

20
Fixed and Variable Costs

21
Manufacturing Costs

##  Alternative classification of manufacturing costs:

1. Direct labor - wages and benefits paid to workers
2. Materials - costs of raw materials
3. Overhead - all of the other expenses associated with
running the manufacturing firm
 Factory overhead consists of the costs of operating
the factory other than direct labor and materials.
 Corporate overhead is the cost not related to the
company’s manufacturing activities.

Cost of Equipment Usage

## Hourly cost of worker-machine system:

Co = CL(1 + FOHRL) + Cm(1 + FOHRm)

where
Co = hourly rate, \$/hr;
CL = labor rate, \$/hr;
FOHRL = labor factory overhead rate,
Cm = machine rate, \$/hr;
FOHRm = machine factory overhead rate
