In this research we studied how the assignment of a fully cross-trained workforce organized on a serial production line affects throughput. We focused on two serial production environments: dynamic worksharing on a production line, similar to bucket brigade systems and a fixed assignment serial-production line where workers work on a specific task during a given time period.Option 4: Under the assumption that W2 is the first and W1 is the second (and cannot be idle) we have the following equation: x21* k21 = x12* k12 orx21*d = x12* b. As d ay b (or k21 ay k12) thus, W1 would never work at S1 as W2 is faster andanbsp;...
