Structure

The first set of nodes we will define are the buffers. We will start our model with a buffer with an unlimited supply of shelled peanuts. We will end our model with an unlimited capacity buffer representing the warehouse. We will also defined a intermediate buffer of peanut butter, which is in between the Fine Grinder and the Filling Station.

The next set of nodes we will define are the constraints. In the video, the first operation or constraint is defined as the Roaster, which operates at a rate of 300 pounds per minute. The Roaster is followed by the Blancher, Sorter, Coarse Grinder, Mixer, Fine Grinder. Then the Filling Station, which operates at 250 jars per minute. Followed by the Capper, Labeler, Case Packer, and Stretch-wrapper.
