At Fujitsu Computer Products of America (FCPA), the quality of all production material is assured by Incoming Quality Control (IQC) before it is used in manufacturing. Material inspection is a critical part of this quality control process. The inspectors who conduct these inspections are typically cross trained to work with more than one commodity. The objective of this project is to optimize the use of the inspectors' time such that the weekly production demand will be met with the minimal weekly labor costs.
