The bathtub theory of operations management is being promoted as the next breakthrough for global competitiveness. The factory is a bathtub with 50 gallons of capacity. The drain is the outlet to the market and can output 3 gallons per hour wide open. The faucet is the raw material input and can let material in at a rate of 4 gallons per hour. (Assume the bathtub is empty)
