Kristen Cookie Company
Concept:
* Cookies will be supplied fresh * Make to order
Production Process S.No. | Steps | Time taken (minutes) | Responsible | 1 | Take on order through e-mail | 1 | Roommate | 2 | Adding ingredients & mixing (max. 3 dozen) | 6 | You | 3 | Spooning the cookies onto the tray (max. 1 dozen) | 2 | You | 4 | Bake in oven (max. 1 dozen) | 10 | Roommate | 5 | Cool the cookies | 5 | Roommate | 6 | Packing the cookies | 2 | Roommate | 7 | Delivery & accept the payment | 1 | Roommate |

Maximum number of orders per night:
Open for four hour per night and one dozen cookies per order
Total hours available per night = 240 mins.
Time required to finish one order = 27 mins
Assuming the order coming in continuously one after the other and the time for placing the cookies in the oven is negligible.
Roommate can take total of 19 orders before he takes care of steps 5 to 7 for the first order.
So the first order takes 27 mins to finish all the steps
From the next order it takes 10 mins from the end time of previous order, so for second order the finish time is 27+ 10 = 37 mins from the work start time during that night ( from time zero)
So for the first eight order the total time taken is 27min + (18*10) = 207 mins
Then process repeats. The roommate now starts taking the order
Now he can take maximum of 1 order.
The total time required for this one order = 27 mins
So the maximum time utilized = 207 + 27 = 234 mins
Maximum number of orders can be finished in the four hours = 19 + 1 = 20 orders
Maximum no. of mixers required to increase the production rate:
a) Each order consists of one dozen cookies
Here we have note down that one person is in charge for mixing and spooning the cookies (step 2 & 3).
So even if you place more than one mixer, he can do for next order once he finishes the step 2 & 3 of…...

Kristen's Cookie Company

...Kristen's Cookie Company Kristen's Cookie Company is a good example where the success or failure of the company depends directly on the process planning adopted by the company, i.e., the company can maximize its productivity by utilizing its resources effectively. One major aspect of process analysis is to identify the major bottlenecks in the process and trying to mitigate their effects with least possible level of costs and resources. The following flowchart shows the overall process adopted by the company: (Exhibit 1) Filling a rush order: Process Resource(s) Process Time Cumulative Time Consumed Taking Order E-mail 0 minutes 0 minutes Washing and Mixing Self 6 minutes 6 minutes Filling Tray Self 2 minutes 8 minutes Preparing Oven Roommate 1 minute 9 minutes Baking Oven 9 minutes 18 minutes Removing the tray Roommate 0 minutes 18 minutes Cooling None 5 minutes 23 minutes Packaging & Collecting Money Roommate 3 minutes 26 minutes Thus, it requires minimum 26 minutes to fill a rush order. Production Capacity (4 hours): Since the resources required for the different processes are not common everywhere, there can be two orders (of one dozen each, for simplicity) being processed simultaneously. Thus, it would not require twice as much time for the second order (of one dozen) to be completed as it requires for the first one (of one dozen). This can be attributed to the fact that one can get the tray ready for the second order while the first one is in the oven...

...Cookie It was late, nine oclock late, the alarm on the end table blaring. Ming Long is late for work. As he struggles to get out of the door by nine fourty-five his boss calls. He does not pick up. He hops in his car and hurries to work. As he arrives at work Lisa greets him at the front desk. “Hey Ming, you’re late, that’s odd” she says with a weird grin “Hello, Lisa” he yells as he runs past As Ming is strolling down the hallway he feels something that is a little odd. He arrives at his office, papers stacked up to the ceiling. He got to work sorting as soon as he walked in. In the middle of his sorting process the boss walks in. “Good morning Ming.” He says happily “Hello, Lary” Ming says anxiously Ming still half asleep starts his lunch break, 15 minutes in Lary comes over, with no conversation subject in mind Ming says “Hello.” “Hi.” Says Lary That was the whole conversation, it was pretty off because Lary usually talks Mings ear off. Something must be wrong with him, he wasn’t even mad about Ming coming in late. As Ming walks curiously back to work he sees a new person, dressed in a nice suit with white pin stripes, slicked back black hair, dark red tie, and brand new dress shoes, or at least he thought they were new. Ming walks back to his office and sits because he is already caught up with his work. Lary comes walking over with this suspicious person and introduces him to me. “Ming, this is Chris, Chris this is Ming.” Lary......

Case Study: Kristen’s Cookie Company

...Case Study: Kristen’s Cookie Company Key questions to answer before you launch the business: 1) How long will it take you to fill a rush order? If we consider that one order is a dozen, the flow time is 26 minutes for the first order. 2) How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? (4 hours = 240 minutes) If we consider that one order is a dozen, it will take me: * For the first order: 26 minutes * For the second order: 20 minutes (excluding backing and mixing because 6 min can be for 3 dozens) * For the third order: 20 minutes → So, it will take 66 minutes for 3 orders. → (240 / 66)* 3 = 10 orders/ night. 3) How much of your own and your roommate’s valuable time will it take to fill each order? If we assume that we will work 4 hours (240 minutes) each night, and it takes us on average 22 minutes (26+20+20 /3) to produce a dozen. (Considering that one order is a dozen.) 4) Because your baking trays can hold exactly one dozen cookies, you produce and sell cookies by the dozen. Should you give any discount for people who order two dozen cookies, three dozen cookies, or more? If so, how much? Will it take you any longer to fill a two-dozen cookie than a one-dozen cookie order? Because producing a second and a third dozen cookies will take less time than producing the first dozen cookies (excluding the washing and mixing steps), we can give a discount for people ordering two or three......

Kristen’s Cookie Company Case Report

...Kristen’s cookie company pre-case report DSC335 1. Draw a flow chart of the cookie-making process 2. How long will it take to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie? It will take 26 minutes to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie. (I revise my chart to 4 cycle orders) 3. What is the cycle time? How many orders can you fill in a night (4-hour period)? Does your answer depend on the size of the order, 1-dozen, 2-dozen, or 3-dozen? 1-dozen orders: The cycle time is 10 minutes. The first order of 1-dozen cookies will take 26 minutes, and each 10 minutes for another 1-dozen cookie order. (4*60-26)/10=21.4 plus the first order, we can make 22 orders of 1-dozen cookie fill in a night. 2-dozen orders: The cycle time is 20 minutes. The first order of 2-dozen cookies will take 36 minutes, and each 20 minutes for another 2-dozen cookie order. (4*60-36)/20=10.2 and plus the first order, we can make 11 orders of 2-dozen cookie fill in a night. 3-dozen orders: The cycle time is 30 minutes. The first order of 3-dozen cookies will take 46 minutes, and each 30 minutes for another 3-dozen cookie order. (4*60-46)/30=6.47 and plus the first order, we can make 7 orders of 3-dozen cookie fill in a night. 4. What is the difference in labor (both you and your roommate’s time) per dozen among 1-dozen, 2-dozen, and 3-dozen orders? 1-dozen orders: Me: Wash and Mixing 6 minutes + fill the tray 2 minutes = 8 minutes +my roommate: Setting timer and putting in the oven 1......

...For the exclusive use of S. Zhang, 2015. 9-686-093 REV: JULY 13, 2006 ROGER BOHN 1 Kristen's Cookie Company (A1) You and your roommate are preparing to launch Kristen’s Cookie Company in your on-campus apartment. The company will provide fresh cookies to hungry students late at night. You need to evaluate the preliminary design for the company’s production process in order to make key policy decisions, including what prices to charge, what equipment to order and how many orders to accept, and to determine whether the business can be profitable. Illustration by Jane Simon Business Concept Your idea is to bake fresh cookies to order, using any combination of ingredients that the buyer wants. The cookies will be ready for pickup at your apartment within an hour. Several factors will set you apart from competing products such as store-bought cookies. First, your cookies will be completely fresh. You will not bake any cookies before receiving the order; therefore, the buyer will be getting cookies that are literally hot out of the oven. Second, like many Boston-based area ice-cream shops, you will have a variety of ingredients available to add to the basic dough, including chocolate chips, M&M’s, chopped Heath bars, coconut, walnuts, and raisins. Buyers will telephone in their orders and specify which of these ingredients they want in their cookies. You will guarantee completely fresh cookies. In short, you will have the freshest, most exotic......

P429 Kristen's Cookie

...Indivisual Assignment 1: Kristen’s Cookie I. Flow Diagram for fulfilling an order II. How long will it take to fill a rush order? Washing out mixer bowl and mixing ingredient + Spooning cookie on to tray + Putting cookie in oven & setting timer and baking + Leaving for cool + Packing in a box + Accepting payment 6 + 2 + 10 + 5 + 2 + 1 = 26 min III. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? Since the required resource for different stages are not all in common, Kristen and his roommate could process two orders simultaneously. However, before starting the second tray of cookie, we need to wait until Kristen is done with washing mixer bowl, mix ingredients and spooning cookie on to tray for the first tray, for which the time lag would be 6 + 2 = 8 min. After Kristen are done with washing mixer bowl, mix ingredients and spooning cookie on to tray for the second tray, they would realize the oven is still in use of baking the first tray of cookie; therefore, we need to wait another 2 minutes for the availability of oven. Thus, the total time lag between the first and the second would be 8 + 2 = 10 min. The expression of the number of minutes to produce n one-dozen batches is: 16+10n≤4*60 So we can get n≤22.4. The nearest integer is 22; therefore, we can fill 22 order in a night in maximum....

...2 minutes to spoon the cookie dough onto a tray, a dozen per tray; 10 minutes to put the cookie into the one tray capacity oven, set the timer, and bake the cookies; 5 minutes to take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool; 2 minutes per dozen to take the cookies off the tray and carefully pack them into a box; and 1 minute to accept payment for the order. The overall process takes 19 minutes per dozen and a constant 8 minutes for every order under four dozen cookies because of each order under four dozen will always take 2 minutes to receive and accept payment for the order and 6 minutes to mix ingredients up three dozen cookies worth. So for a rush order of two dozen it will take 46 minutes and a rush order of three dozen will take 65 minutes. 2. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? Assuming all orders are only one dozen, we could fill 24 orders in a night because the bottleneck resource of the process, which determines the capacity of the whole process, is the baking in the oven. Baking takes 10 minutes giving it the lowest capacity of all the steps and the capacity of the whole process, 6 dozen cookies per hour thus 24 dozen cookies each four-hour night. The capacity for the other steps are 60 dozen per hour to receive, read, print, and send reply to the customer order; 10 dozen per hour to place all the ingredients of the order into a mixing bowl; 30 dozen per hour to spoon the cookie dough onto a tray; 12......

...Case Report: Kristen’s Cookie Company Question 1 How long will it take to fulfill a rush order? | Gantt Chart for Kristen's Cookie Case | | | | | | | | | | | | | To fulfill the rush order it is still necessary to go through all parts of the process illustrated on the process flow diagram of the cookie-making process (it can be found on the last page). As there are no processes that can be done in a parallel way, every stage follows the other. Calculating the time needed for each step it can be concluded that the order can’t be prepared less than in 26 minutes. Question 2 How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open 4 hours each night? We already know from the first question, the first dozen can be fulfilled in 26 minutes. Lets have a look, on the fastest possible way to prepare the second and all the following dozens. I can start preparing the 2nd order as soon as I start heating the oven (the chart visually demonstrates it): According to the chart it takes 26 minutes to fill the first order and 10 minutes more to fill each following order. From here we have: Operating time = 4*60 = 240 minutes The formula for counting the amount of orders that are able to be produced can be seen as: 16+10n <= 240 where n is the numbers of orders. From this equation we get, that n(max) = 22 dozen. So during 4 hours in a night one can prepare 22 dozen of cookies in 236 minutes. Question 3 How much of your own and your roommate’s......
