6.1: Sample calculations: Exercise for Combine Harvester
Calculation exercise "Combine harvester":
Part 1: Machinery costs
Part 2: Procedural costs
Part 3: Comparative costs and minimum extent of utilization at equal quality of work.
Part 4: Comparative costs and minimum extent of utilization at different quality of work.
6.1.1: Part 1a: Machinery costs,1a -task
6.1.2: Part 1b: Machinery costs,1b -solution
6.1.3: Part 2a: Procedural costs, 2a -task
6.1.4: Part 2b: Processing costs, 2b -solution
6.1.5: Part 3a: Comparison costs and Minimum Extent of Usage, 3a -task
6.1.6: Part 3b: Comparison of costs and minimum extent of utilization, 3b -solution
6.1.7: Part 4a:
Comparative costs and minimum extent of utilization, taking into account differences in the quality of work - Exercise 1, 4a -task
6.1.8: Part 4b: MEU with differences in the quality of work, 4b -solution 1 and task 2
6.1.9: Part 4c: MEU with differences in the quality of work, 4c -solution
The correct answer is: The minimum extent of utilization for an owned harvester, taking into account the higher losses on the side of internal mechanization, is 592.5 ha per year. Accounting for both effects simultaneously, the minimum workload is only at 447.6 ha per year.
