Case Questions For these case questions, we are given a product structure which is a hierarchical composition of a product that lists raw materials, assemblies, components, parts, and quantities of a product. the Model 1000 Product Structure shows that engine assembly requires one gearbox with a lead time of two weeks, and each Gear Box requires two input shafts with lead times of 3 weeks. We are also given a blank Gear Box requirement sheet and a blank Input Shaft requirements sheet to be filled out in according with the questions. Our input information comes from our Engine Assembly master schedule which shows the 12 weeks of production and the required quantities per week. Lastly, we are given a chart for costs per part to determine the overall cost of production in reference to the setup costs and inventory costs of the product. 1. Con Initially, assume that Phil wants to minimize his inventory requirements. Assume that each order will be only for what is required for a single period. Using the following forms, calculate the net requirements and planned order releases for the gear boxes and input shafts. Assume that lot sizing is done using lot-for-lot (L4L). For question number one, based off of the master schedule for Engine Assembly and the Product Structure, we can gather that there is one gear box required per engine. So, inputting the engine requirements from the master schedule into a requirement form for gear boxes is the first step. After inputting the correct requirements per period, we must then take into account any other knowledge we have for the production process. In this case, there are seventeen gear boxes on hand at the start of production and five scheduled receipts due at the beginning of week

two. We organize that data into the table and then continue on the process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
