The plant has three different machines: A, B, and C. Each performs different tasks and can work on only one unit of material at a time.
Process times for each task are shown in the diagram. Each machine is available 2,400 minutes per week. There are no "Murphys" (major opportunities for the system to foul up). Setup and transfer times are zero. Demand is constant.
Operating expenses (including labor) total a constant $12,000 per week. Raw materials are not included in weekly operating expenses.
