Balance and adjust the number of posts
Depending on the Cycle Time and different Takt Time, we will be able to balance and adjust the number of operators on manual stations. There is 11 positions.
The overall cycle time for all of these positions is 868 seconds.
The theoretical calculation of the number of operators for the different takt time is as follows :
- High season : Takt = 2mn 36s soit 156s —> 868 / 156 = 5.5 so 6 operators
- Average season : Takt = 3mn 15s soit 195s —> 868 / 195 = 4.5 so 5 operators
- Low season : Takt = 4mn 20s soit 260s —> 868 / 260 = 3.3 so 4 operators
The assembly line is linear, and a length of at least 40m, balancing can be done only on contiguous positions. It is thus not possible to use the theoretical calculation.
The various balances are the following :
The number of operators, according to seasonality is from 8 to 5.
