Year 10
At the Moslund Plant, the assembly line consists of 3 conveyor belts. In addition, there are 3 inspection posts, one at the end of each conveyor belt. In Year 10 (Y10), 15 workers were employed directly on the line; 3 of these workers staffed the inspection posts, one at each post. In Y10, the Moslund Plant assembly line had an output of 250,000 units and generated a profit of $15,000,000.


Year 11
For Year 11 (Y11), the Moslund Plant assembly line was modernized as follows:

  • Conveyor-belt speeds were increased by a fixed percentage.
  • The assembly line’s administrative unit was restructured to maximize efficiency.
  • Each inspection post was automated, and the 3workers who formerly staffed the posts were laid off and were not replaced.
  • There were no other personnel changes on the assembly line for Y11.
