Kota Mills supply Divine Denim with the organic denim used in their production. After discussions with Helen about the service she was getting from Good Numbers, the manager of Kota Mills decided to use Good Numbers to assist with their management decision making. Kota Mills produces three different weights of denim using two departments. In Department 1, machines weave the cloth. In Department 2 the cloth is dyed a variety of colours. Information for the combined use of resources in both departments for the three types of fabric is outlined below.
Bolts are 20 metres each. All fabric is inspected during production. Robotic equipment inspects the fabric for obvious flaws as the bolts are wound up. Each bolt spends about 5 minutes in the inspection process.
