5 Multiple choice questions
- the production of good or services tailored to meet customers' individual needs cost- effectively
- availability of public infrastructure services (electricity, water, natural gas, and communications)
- you start with the date materials are available, then create the most efficient schedule, and then determine a shipping date based on that schedule
- used mostly for high- volume, standardized products that can be produced in a sequential fashion.
- groups together similar tasks, and the partially assembled product moves from one station to the next as workers perform a particular step in the production process
5 True/False questions
Computer-Aided Design (CAD) → create two-dimensional or three-dimensional models of physical parts.
just-in-time inventory control → system keeps the smallest amount of inventory on hand as possible, and everything else that is needed is ordered so that it arrives just in time to be used. Storing fewer items and using items right away can reduce storage costs.
lean production → set of principles concerned with reducing waste and improving flow
statistical quality control → Continual monitoring of each stage of the entire production process
enterprise resource planning → systems can do the same inventory control and process scheduling that MRP can do, but they can integrate these functions with all the other aspects business that management would like to tie together, such as finance and human resources.
