Abstract
The report studies the effects of the working conditions and capacities on the inbound flow of small items at 25 CFSD. The study estimates that the processing time could increase by 14 to 20% when a worker is affected by fatigue. A linear program model is developed to assess the amount of resources required in the receipts section at peak times. Based on the current capacities, the model suggests that the receipts processing and induction area are potential bottlenecks in the receipts section. The model suggests that the time to process the backlog of material in the receipts section could decrease by 30% if four more workstations (with workers) and a Kubernetic train are added to the receipts section. The personnel requirement to support four extra workstations represent a 17% increase in the workforce of the receipts section. The study concludes with a brief discussion on the coupling of the issues and receipts sections.
