We’re consulting for a boutique car manufacturer, producing luxury cars.
They run on one month (30 days) cycles, we have one cycle to show we can provide value.
There is one robot, 2 engineers and one detailer in the factory. The detailer has some holiday off, so only has 21 days available.
The 2 cars need different time with each resource:
Robot time: Car A – 3 days; Car B – 4 days.
Engineer time: Car A – 5 days; Car B – 6 days.
Detailer time: Car A – 1.5 days; Car B – 3 days.
Car A provides €30,000 profit, whilst Car B offers €45,000 profit.
At the moment, they produce 4 of each cars per month, for €300,000 profit. Not bad at all, but we think we can do better for them.
