During the fifth experiment, the job intensity was increased from 10 to 70 jobs per hour and efficiency of the resource search method, which has been described, in comparison with the standard method, was observed.
The value of the parameter [bar.[TTD.sup.[SIGMA]] was recorded as the intensity of job sending (10; 20; 30; 40; 50; 60 and 70 jobs per hour) has been changed.
That is, say they're running 70 jobs per hour
on the main line.
After installation of the pneumatic tools recordable injuries dropped to zero and jobs per hour
Now while you might think to yourself that a typical auto plant might run 60 jobs per hour
and that the 1,212 vehicles could be handled within three eight-hour days, note well that at Goodwood things are done a bit differently.

Getting Even Leaner
The cars are being produced at 100 jobs per hour
. Unquestionably, uptime is essential.
It was originally designed to process 17 jobs per hour
, but customer demand outstripped capacity driving Smyrna's engineers to shoehorn in sealer robots and automated conveyors that brought the jobs per hour
rate up to 25.
But Karr says that with demands for high hourly throughput (e.g., 50 jobs per hour
), the tracking line is the most efficient, especially when the tremendous cost of paint booths are taken into account.
