Workstation (WS) A is the bottleneck this week and is almost out of work. WSB is not a bottleneck but has a fairly large setup time. WSB is currently running blue thingamacallums but has an order for red whatchamathings in its in-basket that would go directly to WS A when completed at WS B. What should happen?
O WS B should finish the blue ones before switching to red and avoid an additional set up.
O WS A should add extra capacity at any cost,
O WS B should add extra long term capacity
O WS B should switch to reds and get some to WS A as needed and finish making the blues at a later point.
O Not even the slightest clue
