  • Circular recorder charts are purchased in packages of 100 and lots of 2
  • Circular recorder pens are purchased in packages of 5 and lots of 2
  • Circular recorder service events occur once per year
  • Space for the storage of new charts is 0.5 m2
  • Space for the storage of recorded charts is 1 m2
  • It takes 5 minutes for a procurement professional to order 2 lots of chart paper or 2 lots of pens
  • It takes 5 minutes for a warehouse operator to receive 2 lots of paper or 2 lots of pens as inventory
  • It takes 10 minutes for a production operator to retrieve new paper or pens
  • It takes 5 minutes for production operator to install new paper or pens
