The chapter presents multiple techniques that service firms can use to make their processes leaner. Which technique is demonstrated by a restaurant that offers special discounts midweek to attract more demand during a traditionally slow period?
The restaurant needs to opt for the technique of leveling the facility load that will help them to attract more demand during a traditionally slow period.
Level the facility load refers to the process of removing the extra load from the restaurant which will help them to focus on the main customers by removing unnecessary waste in the form of non-profitable customers.
only those customers that are profitable to their businesses will lead them to increase their profitability at the time of a traditionally slow period. The restaurant can focus on those customers by giving them additional discounts who are their regular customers or can offer them free sweet dishes in the form of tokens.
In which ways, if any, are the following systems analogous to kanban: returning empty bottles to the supermarket and picking up filled ones; running a hot dog stand at lunchtime; withdrawing money from a checking account; raking leaves into bags?In which ways, if any, are the following systems analogous to kanban: returning empty bottles to the supermarket and picking up filled ones; running a hot dog stand at lunchtime; withdrawing money from a checking account; raking leaves into bags?
Relative to the U.S. distribution network calculates the cost associated with running the existing system. Assume that 40 percent of the volume arrives in Seattle and 60 percent in Los Angeles and the port processing fee for federal processing at both locations is $5.00 per CBM. Assume that everything is transferred to the Kansas City distribution center by rail, where it is unloaded and quality checked. Assume that all volume is then transferred by truck to the nine existing warehouses in the United States.
Transmissions are delivered to the fabrication line four at a time. It takes one hour for transmissions to be delivered. Approximately four vehicles are produced each hour, and management has decided that 50 percent of expected demand should be maintained as safety stock. How many kanban card sets are needed?
