Continuous flow processes

Question 31 pts Which of the following is true of continuous flow processes?
They create one of a kind products with wide variations in specifications. They create low volumes of customized goods and services. They use highly specialized and automated equipment. They have a very the flexible sequence of work tasks.

Question 4(1 pts) are organized around particular types of general-purpose equipment that are flexible and capable of customizing work for individual customers.
Assembly line processes Job shop processes Flow shop processes Continuous flow processes

Question 51 pts Which of the following is true of flow shop processes?
They are large-scale, customized initiatives with wide variations in tasks. They have high setup or change over time. They produce low volumes of custom goods and services. They are organized around a fixed sequence of activities and process steps.

Question 61 pts A is a characterization of product growth, maturity, and decline over time.
product-process matrix value stream map product lifecycle service blueprint

Question 71 pts Which of the following statements is true of the service-positioning matrix (SPM)?
The vertical axis of the SPM denotes the repeatability of a customer’s service-encounter activity sequence. The SPM helps management to design a service system that best meets the technical and behavioral needs of customers. The horizontal axis of the SPM reflects the number of pathways built into a service system design by management. The SPM mainly focuses on the alignment of process choice with the characteristics of the manufactured good.

Question 81 pts Which of the following defines a pathway in a service-delivery system?
It is a set of all value-added activities involved in producing and delivering services to customers. It is a unique arrangement of service activities in a service system map. It is a set of work activities that limit the throughput of the entire process. It is a unique route through a service system.

Question 91 pts A is the beginning or end of a process.
process bottleneck process map process boundary process design

Question 101 pts constrain customers to follow a very small number of possible and predefined pathways through the service system.
Customer-routed services Provider-routed services Make-to-order services Value-added services

Question 111 pts Non-value-added activities in a process design can be eliminated by: adding multiple approval requirements for all transactions. increasing process boundaries. using value stream mapping.
limiting the throughput of all processes.

Question 121 pts In the project management lifecycle, the involves such activities as forming a team, allocating resources, calculating costs, assessing risk, preparing project documentation, and ensuring good communication.Controlling stage closing stage organizing stage defining stage

Question 131 pts Which of the following is true of the Critical Path Method (CPM)?
It accounts for the interruptions that may affect an activity between the start and the finish times. It uses the variance in the critical path activities to evaluate the risks associated with project completion times. It allows us to investigate the effects of uncertainty of activity times on project completion times. It assumes that activities are independent of one another, with clearly defined start and finishes dates.

Question 141 pts The critical path for a project is the sequence of activities that:
requires the minimum resources. defines the total crash time for all activities in a project. requires highly skilled labor. takes the longest time.

Question 151 pts The district magistrate of a city has decided to reconstruct the most frequented street in the city. He plans to block the street for the duration of the work, which will cause considerable inconvenience to the people of the city. The project has three parallel paths defined as the following:
Path A-B-C-H will take 16 days. Path A-D-E-H will take 22 days.
Path A-F-G-H will take 30 days. In the given scenario, which of the following statements is true?
Path A-D-E-H has the largest slack time. Path A-F-G-H is the critical path. Activities B, D, and F have an earliest starting time of 0. The expected duration of the project is 68 days.

Question 161 pts In the context of project scheduling, if an activity has only one immediate predecessor, the earliest start (ES) time is equal to:
the latest finish (LF) time of the immediate predecessor. the earliest finish (EF) time of the immediate predecessor the earliest finish (EF) time of the immediate predecessor plus the slack time for the activity. the latest finish (LF) time of the immediate predecessor plus the time to perform the activity.

Question 161 pts In the context of project scheduling, if an activity has only one immediate predecessor, the earliest start (ES) time is equal to:
the latest finish (LF) time of the immediate predecessor. the earliest finish (EF) time of the immediate predecessor. the earliest finish (EF) time of the immediate predecessor plus the slack time for the activity. the latest finish (LF) time of the immediate predecessor plus the time to perform the activity.

Question 171 pts The activities, their respective immediate predecessors, and activity times for a particular project are given in the table below. Determine the earliest completion time for this project using the critical path method. Activity Immediate Predecessor(s) Activity Time (in weeks) A None 5 B None 3 C B 2 D A. C 1 E D 7 FE 10 G F 1

Question 211 pts is a set of observations measured at successive points in time or over successive periods of time.
The time bucket A time series Turnaround time Throughput time

Question 221 pts Month Forecast Demand Actual Demand April 190 180 May 175 183 June 190 200 July 240 193 August 225 195 The mean absolute deviation (MAD) for the forecast shown in the table is
? Round to 2 decimal places.

Question 231 pts If the MAD for Forecast A is 29.4 and the MAD for Forecast 8 is 35.8, which forecast is historically more accurate?
Forecast A Both are equally accurate Forecast 8

Question 241 pts The following table shows the data for the sales of a new music album at a store for 4 consecutive months. Find the forecast for the fifth month using a 3-month moving average. Round to 2
decimal places Month 1 2 3 4 Sales 112 147 125 118

Question 251 pts The following table shows the sales data of a particular model of a DVD player. If the forecast sales for May is 43.39, calculate the sales forecast for July using the exponential smoothing model with a smoothing constant of 0.40. Month Sales January 35 February 29 March 39 April 42 May 51 June 57
