There are several mistakes in this file. Including in the formula for 'efficient capacity'; no of orders placed yearly; forecast only for 7 days; and more that I won't disclose. I'd suggest not to use it.
Hey, for the Resit Exam 2018 Question 14.) this solver doesn't give the correct answer. However I don't think it is the solvers problem. Does someone know what is going on here? Please help, otherwise I am dying
It is in chapter 5 and the correct way is 18/2*15= 0.6
The reason for this is you have to add the time of all workstations=18
Thn allocate the activities to the workstations which result in 2 workstations and then takt time was given in this case

but how do you get 2 wokstations when they stated to use the theoretical one? if we use the formula for # of workstations, we get a 1.2
You need to just divide 8 by 12 because the range is given in the problem and you want six sigma quality and therefore you need to divide by 12 because you want to "cover" both sides of the mean :) this was in chapter 6 problem 2 and 3

Thank you for your explanation and your reference!!
could u explain why the n. of workstations is 2 and not 6 ?

Because as said before it is about the theoretical number of workstations so Total number of minutes required/takt time. Which mean sin this case 18/15=1.2 and for workststations you always have to round up so 2
in the question it's written for every 1 Decoration it needs 2 Sugar. So you take the planned order releases from Table D and multiply them by 2 and directly put them in Table B gross requirements in the same week they occurred in Table D
The planned order releases do not influence the rest of your table, so you can just adjust them yourself.
I.e. if you have a lead time of 1 week the POreleases of week 1 are the POReceipts of week 2.
If you have a 2 week lead time, the POreleases is week 1 are the POReceipts of week 3
I realised 4 cells turned to 0.
The formulas that should be in them are the following:
D43: =(C43 + D45 - D41 + D42)
D44: =(D41 + B35 - C43 - D42)
E43: =(D43 + E45 - E41 + E42)
E44: = (E41 + B35 - D43 - E42)
