cycle counting is that it;Answer;makes;the annual physical inventory more acceptable to management.;does;not require the detailed inventory records necessary when annual physical;inventory is used.;does;not require highly trained people.;allows;more rapid identification of errors and consequent remedial action than is;possible with annual physical inventory.;does;not need to be performed for less expensive items.;4 points;Question 13;1.;Aggregate planning is capacity planning for;Answer;the;long range.;the;intermediate range.;the;short range.;typically;one to three

about aggregate planning is;true?;Answer;Advertising/promotion;is a way of manipulating product or service supply.;Work;station loading and job assignments are examples of aggregate production;planning.;Overtime/idle;time is a way of manipulating product or service demand.;Aggregate;planning uses the adjustable part of capacity to meet production;requirements.;All;of the above are true.;4 points;Question 16;1.;A material requirements plan contains information with regard to;all of the following except;Answer;quantities;and required delivery dates of all subassemblies.;quantities;and required delivery dates of final products.;the;capacity needed to provide the projected output rate.;inventory;on hand for each final product.;inventory;on hand for each subassembly.;4 points;Question 17;1.;A major strength of MRP is its capability;Answer;to;minimize labor hours used in production.;for;timely and accurate replanning.;to;reduce lead times.;to;maximize production throughput.;to;minimize scrap.;4 points;Question 18;1.;Material requirements plans specify;Answer;the;quantities of the product families that need to be produced.;the;quantity and timing of planned order releases.;the;capacity needed to provide the projected output rate.;the;costs associated with alternative plans.;whether;one should use phantom bills of materials or not.;4 points;Question 19;1.;Which scheduling technique should be employed when due dates are;important for a job order?;Answer;forward;scheduling;loading;dispatching;backward;scheduling;master;scheduling;4 points;Question 20;1.;Which of the following techniques does not contribute to;increasing throughput at a bottleneck?;Answer;schedule;throughput to match capacity of the bottleneck;increase;capacity
