Answer: In exhibit 6.9, it has been detailed how the engineers who designed the new subnotebook computer felt that the new line should be organized. The engineers designed the line with the assumption that for every 2 minutes, one subnotebook is assembled. By using this assumption, we calculate the time needed to produce 300 units a day: 300 computers X 2 minutes = 600 minutes a day 600 minutes X (1 hour/60 minutes) = 10 hours Therefore, ten hours is needed every day in order to produce 300 units of Toshiba Subnotebook...
