This activity contains 15 questions.
Which of the following is NOT a benefit of an MRP system?
Better utilization of labor and facilities
Forecasting of finished-goods demand
Improvement in customer service
Reduction of inventory levels
Which of the following is an example of dependent demand for manufactured goods?
Hospital bed sheets
Hotel rooms sold
An MRP system provides which of the following advantages?
Statistical forecast of component demand.
Automatic update of the dependent demand and replenishment schedules of components when parent schedules change.
Increased vertical integration.
Smoothing of lumpy demand.
The key inputs to an MRP include:
engineering drawing of the product.
inventory record database.
A component that has one or more parents and no components is most likely to be a(n):
If gross requirements are 100, planned receipts are 120, and inventory on hand from the previous period is 50, then the projected on-hand inventory balance:
When the projected on-hand inventory balance falls in the negative range, then:
the inventory record is incorrect.
the shortage signals it is time for a planned receipt.
too much inventory is on hand.
gross requirements must increase.
The listed lot-sizing method that best minimizes the inventory levels is:
Periodic Order Quantity.
Economic Order Quantity.
Lot for Lot.
Which statement about capacity requirements planning (CRP) is NOT true?
CRP systems enable the identification of critical workstations.
The purpose of CRP is to match the material requirements plan with the plants production capacity.
CRP systems access inventory records to determine when planned orders or scheduled receipts will reach a workstation.
CRP systems adjust the order release time to prevent a workstation from exceeding its capacity.
An end item A is assembled from two B components and two C subassemblies. The C subassembly is composed of one of each component B and D. If the gross requirement for A is 100 units, what is the demand for component B?
The drum beat in the Drum-Buffer-Rope system is set by the:
capacity constrained resource schedule.
rate of the last process step.
time in-between batch transfers between processes.
release of material to the production floor.
One difference between an MRP system and a DBR system is:
There is no bill of materials in DBR.
There can be part commonality in an MRP system.
MRP is not focused on any one resource.
MRP requires a lot sizing rule but DBR does not.
In some companies, an MRP system is used to track:
retail cost of manufactured items.
waste generated while manufacturing items.
customer satisfaction with manufactured items.
process improvements made from one production run to the next.
The service analogy to the bill of materials is the:
bill of service.
bill of sale
bill of process
bill of resources
Which of the following is
a feature of an ERP system?
Updating of information in all modules.
Information entered as transactions.
Batch processing of new information.
