i have the same problem, i cannot get my head around limiting factors!! I hope this exam isnt as hard as the rest.0

Hi
Production budget when units or hours are limited................ just don't know where to start, any help would be appreciated0 
Hi everyone
I think the first section of this paper was rather more involved than many of the past papers.
Task 1.2 (d)
Number of units to be assembled allowing for rejects at the testing stage.
in your answer to (b) you should have worked out the number of saleable instruments to be produced, this is the figure before the faulty production is added.
467,500 / 85 X 100 = 550,000 units
The 85 is 100%  15% for rejects
Remember you can check if this is correct by 550,000 X 15% 82,500
550,000  82,500 = 467,500
if you check it through like this you will know that you have done it right.
Question (e)
Labour hours required in the year
1. assembly 550/000 / 5 = 110,000
2. testing 550,000 X 3/60 = 27,500
3. dismantling rejects 82,500 X 3/60 = 4,1250 
Sorry I pressed the wrong button
Total hours 141,625
assembly was 12 minutes, if you divide it into 60 minutes its five.
I hope this helps a little. I think this exam can be quite tricky.
Good luck to everyone taking it.

Thanks Marg22. Can you please explain question e
Where did you get the 550,000/5 I cannot see where you got the 5 from I understand the testing and dismantling part, but not this bit.0 
Jossie: a help for u
:thumbup:The 82500 of rejects plus 467500 of good production is 550 000. Then again for hours its not 5 its 0.05 hours( 3/60) 3 minutes changed to hours is 0.05 hours. Goodb luck to every one, including myself.0 
I think limiting factors is the hardest part of PCR simply because of the amount of information they ask you to provide (some of them are really long), I'm worried this is what will be the difference between me passing and failing.0
