2.A plastic injection molding plant will be built to produce 6 million molded parts per year. The plant will run three 8 hour shifts per day, five days per week, 50 weeks per year. For planning purposes, the average order size = 5,000 moldings, average changeover time between orders = 6 hrs, and average molding cycle time per part = 30 sec.
