QUIZ 6 QUESTION 1 1. The just-in-time (JIT) system is no longer a (n) _______________ in the manufacturing world today. In the face of intense global competition, many firms in the United States are looking at improved techniques to manage their manufacturing operations. esoteric concept JIT is also referred to as _______ production. lean The following practices are considered essential for a comprehensive JIT implementation: Uniform production (also known as heijunka), Quick set times, Small lot sizes, Short lead times. True The following practices are considered essential for a comprehensive JIT implementation: Regular maintenance, Diverse workforce, Supplier development, Kanban production control. True JIT is Toyota's manufacturing philosophy to minimize _______, and the JIT production system is a subsystem controlled by ________. waste / kanban The ________ JIT production system has been erected based on the premise of minimizing _________________ (waste) by reducing or eliminating discrete batches. kanban-controlled/work-in-process inventories Kanban is the Japanese word for _____________. card The kanban card contains the part number, the part description, the type of container, and various workstation information. True The kanban production control system uses simple, visual signals to control the movement of materials between work centers as well as the production of new materials to replenish those sent downstream to the next work center. True There are two main types of kanban: __________ signals the need to produce more parts. Each kanban is physically attached to a container. __________ signals the need to withdraw parts from one work center and deliver them to the next work center.

    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.
