The calculation of workload indicates an excessive workload on the drying station workers in the first SME also on the printing station workers and drying in the second SME . The calculation of the number of workers shows the number of existing workers can be maintained but it needs to be done to improve the allocation of tasks so that the worker's workload more evenly.
