MBA 710
Dr. Dave Bukovinsky

A stamping machine costs \$400,000 per year to operate.
The machine can produce 200 stampings per hour.
The machine runs 24 hours per day.
The company does not work on weekends (104 days) or holidays (10 days)
Downtime for maintenance, setups, etc. averages 15 days per year.
The machine is idle because of lack of materials for an average of 5 days per year.
The equivalent of 8 days of production is lost each year because of defects
produced by the machine.
Management expects to produce an average of 1,000,000 stampings per year
over the next five years.
Planned output for the current year was 1,050,000 stampings.
Actual output for the current year was 1,032,000 stampings, requiring 215 days.
If successfully negotiated, a new contract with a customer would increase demand
for the stampings by 24,000 units per year.
