Food Goblin Supermarkets use both cashiers and baggers to serve customers at check out. During the first 6 hours of each workday (Monday-Friday), 4 cashiers and 2 baggers serve approximately 40 customers per hour. A cashier requires approximately 5 minutes at checkout while a bagger requires approximately 2 minutes at bagging to serve each customer.

What is the weekly capacity of the bagger operation?

    oad on 4 cashiers and 2 baggers = 20 customers per hour

    Load on 1 cashier = 20/4 = 5 customers per hour

    Capacity of 1 cashier = 1 customer in 5 minutes = 12 customers per hour

    So, utilization of cashiers = 5 / 12 = 41.67%
