1) Extract a set of 15 orders from the set of 100 orders using the last four digits of your student ID number as the starting seed.

For each of the three sections of the plant being analysed:
1)    Extract a set of 15 orders from the set of 100 orders using the last four digits of your student ID number as the starting seed. 
2)    Create a simple model to evaluate the effectiveness of a production schedule.   The model should automatically calculate key performance measures.  Use as your control sequence the order in which your test set of data was extracted from the pool of orders {this mimics the current approach of the company - they schedule orders based on when they were first received by the company}
3)    Apply appropriate scheduling rules to your set of data and compare the results against the control sequence.
4)    Repeat stages 1 - 3 a number of times using different starting seeds.  If your starting seed was 1252, then adding 5 to this will give a new starting seed of 1257 and this will generate a new set of orders.       
5)    Summarise your findings for each scenario in the technical annex for the Production Director of the company.  Your detailed workings on a spreadsheet should be submitted via the module Blackboard site.  Sufficient information should be provided to enable someone else to verify your answers. 
    Note: The Production Director may wish to test your analysis on a separate data set so your spreadsheet must be designed to facilitate this.    
6)    Evaluate your work on the three different scenarios and identify any other issues that the company may wish to consider.
