Exercise 7: Resource Calculations

You now have all the data to calculate resources per process.   The general formula is this:

Resources  =  Standard Time (Weighted)  /  Takt

For example:  a product requires six minutes of labor (STw), and has a takt time of two minutes.  Thus, the line will need three people working.  Or, restated: each unit takes six minutes of work, but we need one unit every two minutes, so we’ll need three people to keep up.  This formula applies to machine processes in the same way.
