Abstract

Cline Design Creations produces custom-made plasma cut steel signs for customers worldwide; they are produced and shipped from one location in Guernsey, Iowa. Their packaging and shipping room is 15 ft by 25 ft, so saving space is a priority for this project. Cline Design Creations wants to redesign this room for faster packaging, as the packaging process takes up a sizable part of the total time required to get the product out the door. Since the company has very few employees, the production of new signs and the packaging of already cut signs cannot occur simultaneously, so if time can be reduced, the rate at which Cline Design Creations can produce and ship out signs will increase.
