Golf and Factory Dynamics
- Why is there always longer wait time before but not after a Par 3 short hole whereas you are supposed to finish a Par 3 faster than other holes?
- How should a golf course manager decide the release timing of player groups to the course in order to maximize revenue while minimizing wait time?
- What would be the impact on wait time and throughput if we change from 4-sum to say multiple 2-sum or 5-sum?
These questions are related to the followings:
- What are the causes of inventory before a workstation? What is the nature of the bottleneck?
- How should release time of orders be decided in order to maximize throughput and minimize cycle time?
- What is the impact of changing batch size on cycle time and throughput?
