    Best Products Company (BPC) manufactures two different types of toys (A and B, sold in 1,000-count boxes) that are manufactured and assembled on three different workstations (W, X, and Y) using a small-batch process. Batch setup times are negligible.
    The following flowchart denotes the path each product follows through the manufacturing process, and each product’s price, demand per week, and processing times per unit are indicated as well. Purchased parts and raw materials consumed during production are represented by inverted triangles. BPC can make and sell up to the limit of its demand per week; no penalties are incurred for not being able to meet all the demand. Each workstation is staffed by a worker who is dedicated to work on that workstation alone and is paid $6 per hour. Total labor costs per week are fixed. Variable overhead costs are $3,500/week. The plant operates one 8-hour shift per day, or 40 hours/ week.

    Answer the following questions:
  3. Which of the three workstations, W, X, or Y, has the highest aggregate workload, and thus serves as the bottleneck for BPC? (15 Marks)
  4. The senior management at Best Products Company (BPC) is concerned with the existing capacity limitation, so they want to accept the mix of orders that maximizes the company’s profits. Traditionally, BPC has utilized a method whereby decisions are made to produce as much of the product with the highest contribution margin as possible (up to the limit of its demand), followed by the next highest contribution margin product, and so on until no more capacity is available. Because capacity is limited, choosing the proper product mix is crucial. Ali Ahmed, the newly hired production supervisor, is an avid follower of the theory of constraints philosophy and the bottleneck method for scheduling. He believes that profitability can indeed be approved if bottleneck resources are exploited to determine the product mix.
    What is the profit if the traditional contribution margin method is used for determining BPC’s product mix? (15 Marks)

A student can be given a maximum of 2 chances to attend the viva in such cases. It is expected that the student attends the viva during the first chance itself unless due to extenuating circumstances. If the student does not attend the viva in spite of being given 2 chances and fails to submit valid reasons, he/she will be awarded a fail in the module and this shall be counted as a case of academic integrity violation.

    e. If plagiarism is detected in UG Project work (Project 1, Project Planning and Project Design and Implementation), the above clauses do not apply, and the work will be summarily rejected. In these cases the student will be awarded a fail (F) grade and is required to reregister the module.
    1.1.2. Malpractice / Ghostwriting / Collusion

    Operations Management (BUSS-B 1006) – Spring – 2021 – CW (2) – QP
    MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 14 of 16
    for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the component or part submission alone needs to be resubmitted.
    Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in a group assessment, all students of the group will be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all students.
    If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of violations.
    Type 3: Combination of Type 1 and Type 2: In case plagiarism is detected in any component or part submission (submitted at different times) of a group assessment (assignment), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment), even if only the component or part submission alone needs to be resubmitted. All students of the group would be considered as having committed an act of plagiarism irrespective of whether plagiarism is on account of the act of all or a few or only one member. The policy will then be applied to all the students of the group.
    If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied as per the policy for each student according to his / her history of violation.
    Type 4: Variation of Type 1 and Type 2: In cases where the assessment consists of components or part submissions that could be a group assessment component (e.g. group assignment) and an individual assessment component (e.g. individual reflection), the following will be applicable:

The policy will then be applied to all students of the group. In such cases the group assessment component will be resubmitted.
    If some students in the group are eligible to re-submit (first offence) and others are not eligible, only eligible students will be allowed to re-submit within a period of one week and the penalty will be applied for each student according to his / her history of violation.
    b. If plagiarism is detected in the individual assessment component, the individual assessment component will be resubmitted – if the student is eligible for resubmission-. The policy will then be applied to that student alone.
    c. In both cases (a) and/or (b), the deduction in marks will be applicable for the whole assessment (assignment).
    1.7. Types/Variation of Cases of Multiple Offences
    Operations Management (BUSS-B 1006) – Spring – 2021 – CW (2) – QP
    MEC_AMO_TEM_035_02 Page 15 of 16
    If student is caught with multiple violations of same or different nature in different modules of the same semester, they will be considered as one offence and student will be penalized for each violation according to the type of the offence.

In such cases, a deduction of 5% of the marks obtained for the submitted work shall be imposed for each working day following the last date of submission till the date of actual submission. Assessment documents submitted beyond a period of one week (5 working days) after the last date of submission will not be accepted and will be awarded a zero for that assessment.

The extended period of submission will be one week from the original last date of submission. In such cases, the student is expected to submit the supporting certificates on or before the original last date of submission of the assessment and the decision of extension rests with faculty responsible for the assessment .The late submission policy shall be applied if the student fails to submit the work within one week of the original last date of submission.
    Students may contact their teachers for clarification on specific details of the submission time if required.
