- flexible manufacturing system
- a set of principles concerned with reducing waste and improving flow
- b the production of good or services tailored to meet customers' individual needs cost- effectively
- c a system in which machines are programmed to process different part types simultaneously— allowing a manufacturer to mass produce customized products
- d you start with the date materials are available, then create the most efficient schedule, and then determine a shipping date based on that schedule
- e Continual monitoring of each stage of the entire production process
5 Multiple choice questions
- computer-based program used for inventory control and production planning. determines which parts will be needed to finish the job and compares these findings to the current inventory and places an order if needed.
- create two-dimensional or three-dimensional models of physical parts.
- availability of public infrastructure services (electricity, water, natural gas, and communications)
- horizontal bar graph used to lay out each task in a project, the order in which these tasks must be completed, and how long each task will take.
- 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.
5 True/False questions
process layout → used mostly for high- volume, standardized products that can be produced in a sequential fashion.
mass customization → production of goods or services tailored to meet customers' individual needs cost- effectively
Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) → uses the design data to control the machinery used in the manufacturing process
Backward scheduling → where you are given a shipping or due date and you have to determine the start date and the most efficient schedule based on when everything has to be finished.
PERT Chart → horizontal bar graph used to lay out each task in a project, the order in which these tasks must be completed, and how long each task will take.
