If a widget is made of 2 screws and 3 nuts, each assembled in Steps 1 and 2 respectively, if the process yield for the entire operation is a third, how many screws and nuts would I need to make 1 widget?

3 Answers

In assembly line, you always loose some stuff for no apparent reasons. At the same time ME or the PMs need to keep track of expensive parts. Given the circumstances, you always plan for worst case scenario, where you are the last stage of product build, you don't want any surprises and any delays due lack of part. You know your yield is 3, so 6 screws and 9 nuts. Less

This looks like an open ended question. More details is needed. For instance, if cost is not a constraint and this is a prototype, then 10 or more screws; and 15 or more nuts are needed to investigation purposes. If this is already a finished design, then you would expect there will be more than 1 widget be sold, so 4 or more screws; and 6 or more screws for manufacturing for just in case. Then other circumstances. I guess this question is to see how your thought process is... Less
