Carrier and Kallish did perform well at the Kaizen event in the sense that their suggestions are good and fit in with the model that is already working throughout the rest of the plant. But one of the major problems that they forgot to address was how to execute the new plan with the help of the operators. The operators know that they are temporary plus have a different culture and language from them. And they also know that they are students so they did not take their suggestions seriously.

The daily capacity for the current PSEM department is as follows:

Daily Capacity = Number of Resources / Average Time

Daily Capacity = 4 / 52.99 = 0.08 per minute

Since the operators have a total of 9 hour workday minus the two 15 minutes break and 2 hour lunch break, they have 8 hours to work 

Daily capacity per hour = 0.08 * 60 = 4.53 units per hour

Daily Capacity = 4 / 50.10 = 0.079 per minute

Daily capacity per hour = 0.079*60

            = 4.79 units per hour

Operator utilization = {(Total Working Time - Total idol time) / Total working time] * 100

                                       = [(361.83 - 19) / 361.83] * 100

                  = 94.73%
