FORUM 1 – REPLY 2 2 Great job on your paper. I will try to build and add items working upon your paper as a starting point. According to Bultmann, Knust and Waldherr, S. (2018), a flow shop relates to a production environment where jobs consisting of several operations have to be processed in a predefined order and each operation requires a specified processing time and has to be performed on a dedicated machine. The issue is with flow shops what happens when sales drop off on one product and increase on another product. Also the ability to do customization might be slightly more difficult with a flow shop process. According to Li, Li, Sambandam, Sethi and Zhang (2018), applications of flow shop scheduling in modern lean production systems, where jobs may arrive at different times because of emergency orders, uncertain deliveries, and supply delays, can result in bad performance.

    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.
