Chapter 4 Manufacturing Processes True/False 1. Process selection refers to the strategic decision of choosing the volume of output to produce in a manufacturing facility depending upon the way that facility produces. 3. The difference between an assembly line process flow and a continuous process flow is that the assembly line the flow is discrete rather than continuous. 5. The choice of which process structure to select is generally a function of the volume requirements for the product. 7. Break-even analysis can only be used in production equipment decision making when dealing solely with fixed costs, no variable costs. 9. Break-Even Analysis can be used to help decide whether to perform a task with a special purpose machine or with a general purpose machine. 11. The assembly-line balancing procedure determines the precedence relationships of manufacturing tasks. 13. In assembly-line balancing the theoretical minimum number of workstations is found by a ratio of the sum of all task times divided by the cycle time. 15. For the purposes of assembly-line balancing, cycle time is found by dividing production time per day by the required units of output per day.

    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.
