        Capacity at Each Process Step:

    Dumper capacity = 3000 barrels per hour (5 dumpers * 75 barrels per hour) * (8 trucks     per hour = 60 minutes / 7.5 minutes).   Average time to back a truck onto a dumper is 5-10 minutes, so about 7.5 minutes.

      ▪ Temporary holding capacity for dry berries = 4000 barrels per hour (16 bins for dry berries * 250 barrels per bin)
      ▪ Temporary holding capacity for wet berries = 3200 barrels per hour (3 bins for wet berries * 400 barrels per bin plus 8 bins for both dry and wet berries * 250 barrels per bin, taking the assumption that these bins are used for wet berries)
      ▪ Destoning capacity = 4500 barrels per hour (3 units * 1500 barrels per unit)
      ▪ Dechaffing capacity = 4500 barrels per hour (3 units * 1500 barrels per unit)
      ▪ Drying capacity = 600 barrels per hour (3 units * 200 barrels per unit) ( Bottleneck
      ▪ Separating capacity = 1200 barrels per hour (3 units * 400 barrels per unit)
      ▪ Bulking and Bagging = 3133 barrels per hour (4*200+2*1000*(5/6)+8000/12=3133)
