number of lathes required ?

A lathe machine is used for turning operation and it takes 30 minutes to process the component . Efficiency of the lathe is 90 % and the scrap is 20 % . the desired output is 600 pieces per week . Consider 48 hours per week . Determine the number of lathes required ?

------------------

solving
Time = 600 x 0.5 = 300 hr

Now 300 / 0.9

=333.3

Re: number of lathes required ?

Each lathe will work for 90% of 48 hours, or 43.2 hours. 2 components per hour can be processed by each lathe, or 86.4 components per week. Divide 600 by this, and round up to the nearest integer to determine the minimum number of lathes required.

Re: number of lathes required ?

thanks ..
please Can explain this solving

Time taken includiin scrap
= 300/ 0.8 = 375 Hours


375 / 0.9 = 416 .6

number of lath machine

416 .6 / 48

= 9

Re: number of lathes required ?

I assumed the scrap was just an extraneous piece of information. If 20% of the components have to be discarded, then:

Each lathe will work for 90% of 48 hours, or 43.2 hours. 2 components per hour can be processed by each lathe, or 86.4 components per week. 20% of these will be scrap, so we are left with 80% of 86.4 components, or 69.12. Divide 600 by this, and round up to the nearest integer to determine the minimum number of lathes required.

thanks but what mean by this step

375 / 0.9 = 416 .6
