A JIT system uses kanban cards to authorize movement of incoming parts. In one portion of the

system, a work center uses an average of 100 parts per hour while running. The manager has

assigned an inefficiency factor of .20 to the center. Standard containers are designed to hold six

dozen parts each. The cycle time for parts containers is about 105 minutes. 


How many containers

are needed?
