Dry Cleaning Plant

Dry Clean Sample ModelA model of a current ‘central dry cleaning plant’ located in Central Texas. They originally had five retail drop stores including one store attached to the plant plus two routes as shown in the light blue colored Collection Phase.

The ‘central plant’ was processing approximately 6700 garments in a five-day week. They wanted to know where the bottlenecks would occur if they added two more retail outlets and one more route with the expectation of the volume rising to over 10,000 garments per week.

The owner wanted to increase his garment processing count without incorporating any overtime. For this reason, the concept of ‘LEAN Thinking’ was applied to this model.

Phone Repair Process

Phone Repair ProcessThis model provides an illustration of the different dynamics of Just In Time vs. Batch Processing in the context of a service system.

The model captures the processes for telephone repair in a large metropolitan area. Calls requesting service arrive at the Automated Call Center according to time of day, day of week, and service type: Out of Service and Affecting Service. The repairs are screened in three phases to determine whether a repair service technician must respond. If so, a Repair Ticket is generated and sent to the Repair Center.
