AlwaysRain Irrigation, Inc. would like to determine capacity
requirements for the next four years. Currently, two production
lines are in place for making bronze and plastic sprinklers. Three
types of sprinklers are available in both bronze and plastic:
90-degree nozzle sprinklers, 180-degree nozzle sprinklers, and
360-degree nozzle sprinklers. Management has forecast demand for
the next four years as follows:

1 (IN 000s) 2 (IN 000s) 3 (IN 000s) 4 (IN 000s)
Plastic 90 34 46 59 58
Plastic 180 14 19 20 19
Plastic 360 47 59 67 65
Bronze 90 4 5 6 13
Bronze 180 5 5 4 9
Bronze 360 10 11 18 19

Both production lines can produce all the different types of
nozzles. The bronze machines needed for the bronze sprinklers
require two operators and can produce up to 15,000 sprinklers. The
plastic injection molding machine needed for the plastic sprinklers
requires four operators and can produce up to 250,000 sprinklers.
Three bronze machines and only one injection molding machine are
What are the capacity requirements for the next four years? (Assume
that there is no learning.) (Enter the demand
values in thousands. For example, a demand of “57,000 units” would
be enter as “57” in the table below. Round your other answers
to 2 decimal places.)
