Chapter 16 - Scheduling Chapter 16 Scheduling True / False Questions 1. "Flow-shop scheduling" is used in high volume systems. TRUE Difficulty: Easy TLO: 2 Taxonomy: Knowledge 2. Line balancing is a major factor in the design and scheduling of low volume systems because of batch processing. FALSE Difficulty: Easy TLO: 3 Taxonomy: Knowledge 3. Scheduling in intermediate-volume systems has three basic issues: run size, timing, and sequence. TRUE Difficulty: Easy TLO: 2 Taxonomy: Knowledge 16-1

Chapter 16 - Scheduling 4. When operations are often bottlenecked, additional planned idle time will improve the throughput in those areas. FALSE Difficulty: Easy TLO: 1 Taxonomy: Knowledge 5. When orders exceed our capacity, priority rules are used to select which orders will be accepted. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 5 Taxonomy: Knowledge 6. The term loading, as used in scheduling, refers to choosing the order in which jobs will be processed in low-volume systems. FALSE AACSB:4 Difficulty: Hard TLO: 4 Taxonomy: Knowledge 7. Loading is the determination of which work centers should perform which jobs. TRUE Difficulty: Easy TLO: 4 Taxonomy: Knowledge 16-2

Chapter 16 - Scheduling 8. A Gantt chart is a basic scheduling tool but works best for high-volume systems. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 4 Taxonomy: Knowledge 9. A Gantt chart is a basic scheduling tool that is most useful in high-volume systems. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 4 Taxonomy: Knowledge 10. A schedule chart depicts the loading and idle times for a group of machines or departments. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 4 Taxonomy: Knowledge 11. The output of the system cannot exceed the output of the bottleneck operation(s). TRUE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 2 Taxonomy: Knowledge 12. The elimination of idle time on both bottleneck and non-bottleneck operations must be accomplished to optimize output. FALSE AACSB: RT Difficulty: Medium TLO: 1 Taxonomy: Knowledge 16-3

13. As long as the bottleneck operations are used effectively idle time in non-bottleneck operations will not affect the overall productivity of the system. TRUE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 1 Taxonomy: Knowledge 14. The quantity sent to a bottleneck operation could be split into two or more process batches to better utilize a bottleneck resource rather than process the entire batch. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 2 Taxonomy: Knowledge 15. Splitting a large lot after one operation beyond a bottleneck operation would reduce the overall waiting time of the bottleneck operation. FALSE Difficulty: Medium TLO: 1 Taxonomy: Knowledge 16. Input/output (I/O) control refers to monitoring the productivity changes since productivity is determined by the ratio of Output to Input. FALSE
