This is the Assign Tasks to Workers problem

from the Productivity Module practice problems.

In this problem, we are looking at a conveyor paced line with six tasks

distributed among four workers.

Currently, worker 1 performs task 1, which takes 30 seconds.

Worker 2 performs task 2, which takes 25 seconds.

Worker 3 performs tasks 3 and 4, which take 75 seconds total.

Finally, worker 4 performs tasks 5 and 6, which take 45 seconds total.

The first question asks us for

the capacity of the current conveyor paced line.

Recall that the capacity of the current line is given by the capacity of

the bottleneck, where the bottleneck is the resource with the lowest capacity.

With the current setup, the capacity of worker 1 is 1 unit per 30 seconds.

To convert this into units per hour, note that there are 3600 seconds per hour.

So 1 over 30 units per second times 3600 seconds per hour is 120 units per hour.
