A Recirculation Conveyor Has A Total Length Of 700 Ft

A recirculation conveyor has a total length of 700 ft and a speed of 90 ft/min. Spacing of part carriers = 14 ft. Each carrier can hold one part. Automatic machines load and unload the conveyor at the load and unload stations. Time to load a part is 0.10 min and unloads time is the same. To satisfy production requirements, the loading and unloading rates are each 2.0 parts per min. Evaluate the conveyor system design with respect to the three principles developed by Kwo.
