## Description

- [10 points] Consider the following value stream map:

The typical work day is 8 hours per employee and they generally work 5 days per week. They release updates to their software every 2 business weeks.

- What is the total lead time in hours?

- What is the total process time in hours?

- What is the process cycle efficiency?

- What is the %C&A for the process?

- If the development team typically completes 100 story points per 2-week iteration, what is the average takt time of each story point per hour?

- [15 points] Using the provided Excel spreadsheet, perform the same simulation that we did in class.

- Run the simulation using the spreadsheet by filling in the values in the ’roll’ row. You can use a 6-sided die or some other random number generator that gives you reasonably random numbers between 1 and 6. Save a copy of the worksheet as a PDF.

- Experiment by changing the %C&A values for the various workstations. What is the impact on workstation ’E’ of changing the %C&A values of the earlier workstations?

- Plug in the %C&A values from problem 1 of this assignment into your simulation and save a copy of the worksheet as a PDF. How do the deviations from the 3.5 mean differ from that of the baseline you established in part a of this question?
