(TCO 2) A major difference between manufacturing and service systems in terms of scheduling is;4. (TCO 3) Scheduling in service systems may involve scheduling which of the following?;5. (TCO 5) The owner and operator of the local franchise of Handyman, Inc., has four jobs to do today, shown in the order they were received;6. (TCO 6) Building up an inventory of standard parts or modules instead of immediately producing the finished end items is the essence of;7. (TCO 7) With regard to suppliers, JIT systems typically require;8. (TCO 10) Which of the following is characteristic of the JIT philosophy?;9. (TCO 1) In make-to-stock systems, fluctuations in sales volume are managed through which of the following?;10. (TCO 5) In an MRP master schedule, the planning horizon is often separated into a series of times periods called;Page 2;1. (TCO 8) Explain how cellular manufacturing represents a flexible manufacturing system.;2. (TCO 11) State the four building blocks of lean operations, and explain how fast and simple are the two common threads that run through them.;3. (TCO 9) Elaborate on the statement: "The output of the system cannot exceed the output of the bottleneck operation(s).;4. (TCO 4) Differentiate between infinite loading and finite loading as two major approaches used to load work centers.;5. (TCO 12) The theory of constraints has a goal of maximizing flow through the entire system.;6. (TCO 2) Refer to the following data for jobs waiting to be processed at a single work center (jobs are shown in order of arrival);7. (TCO 10) Respond to the question: "Which is better, MRP or JIT?;8. (TCO 1) The design of the MPC system is influenced by some key features of market demand and product design. Name the key features that will lead to an assemble-to-order system and explain the rationale.;9. (TCO 6) Market requirements drive the choice of the shop floor system approach. Describe and explain the type of market requirements that would be suitable for an MRP-based system, along the lines of product design, product variety, product volume per period, product mix changes, and delivery schedule changes.;10. (TCO 10) Manufacturing strategy also drives the choice of shop floor system. Describe and explain the strategies that lend themselves to a JIT-based system, from the perspective of WIP, changeover cost, and process choice.;BSOP 429 Final Exam 2;Page 1;1. (TCO 4) The two different approaches to load work centers in job-shop scheduling are;2.

(TCO 7) A kanban card is used to signal that;8. (TCO 10) The type of processing system that is used for highly standardized products is;Page 2;1. (TCO 8) Does cellular manufacturing apply best to repetitive, high-volume product or nonrepetitive, low-volume product? Explain and give an example.;2. (TCO 11) Validate or invalidate the statement that although inventories are maintained, the goal of lean operations is to maintain a minimum of safety stock.;3. (TCO 9) Elaborate on the statement: "The output of the system cannot exceed the output of the bottleneck operation(s);4. (TCO 4) Differentiate between infinite loading and finite loading as two major approaches used to load work centers.;5. (TCO 12) Explain why batch process helps maximize worker efficiency.;6. (TCO 2) Refer to the following data for jobs waiting to be processed at a single work center (jobs are shown in order of arrival):?????????? Batch job requires specialized operations carried out by different workers or group of workers and so there is a need for more specialization and standardization.
