by | Nov 30, 2023 | Posted Questions



Shoney Video Concepts produces a line of videodisc players to be
linked to personal computers for video games. Videodiscs have much
faser access time than tape. With such a computer/video link, the
game becomes a very realistic experience. In a simple driving game
where the joystick steers the vehicle, for example, rather than
seeing computer graphics on the screen, the player is actually
viewing a segment of a videodisc shot from a real moving vehicle.
Depending on the action of the player (hitting a guard rail, for
example), the disc moves virtually instantaneously to that segment
and the player becomes part of an actual accident of real vehicles
(staged, of course).

    Shoney is trying to determine a
production plan for the next 12 months. The main criterion for this
plan is that the employment level is to be held constant over the
period. Shoney is continuing in its R&D efforts to develop new
applications and prefers not to cause any adverse feelings with the
local workforce. For the same reason, all employees should put in
full workweeks, even if this is not the lowest-cost alternative.
The forecast for the next 12 months is

  MONTH FORECAST
DEMAND
    MONTH FORECAST
DEMAND
  January 570     July 170
  February 770     August 170
  March 870     September 270
  April 570     October 670
  May 370     November 770
  June 310     December 870

     Manufacturing cost is $140 per
set, equally divided between materials and labor. Inventory storage
cost is $7 per unit per month and is assigned based on the ending
inventory level. A shortage of sets results in lost sales and is
estimated to cost an overall $25 per unit short.

    The inventory on hand at the beginning
of the planning period is 140 units. Fourteen labor hours are
required per videodisc player. The workday is eight hours. No
backorders exist, meaning any unmet demand in one month is not
carried over to the next month.

Develop an aggregate production schedule for the year using a
constant workforce. For simplicity, assume 23 working days each
month except July, when the plant closes down for three weeks’
vacation (leaving seven working days). Assume that total annual
production capacity is greater than or equal to total annual demand
(i.e., compute workforce level based on annual demand and annual
capacity). (Leave no cells blank – be certain to enter “0”
wherever required. Indicate monthly shortages using a negative
ending inventory level.
Round up the “number of
workers” to the next whole number and round down your monthly
“Available production” values to the nearest whole
number.)
