Chapter 07 - Manufacturing Processes Chapter 07 Manufacturing Processes True / False Questions 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. FALSE Level: Medium 2. The choice of which process structure to select is generally a function of the volume requirements for the product. TRUE Level: Easy 3. One methodology used to evaluate equipment investment decisions where the investment entails a large initial investment, fixed costs and variable costs is break-even analysis. TRUE Level: Easy 4. A general purpose machine is less capable than a special purpose machine in certain tasks but can perform a broader variety of tasks. TRUE Level: Easy 7-1

Chapter 07 - Manufacturing Processes 6. The product-process matrix shows the relationship between process structures and product volume and product standardization characteristics. TRUE Level: Easy 7. Assembly lines are a special case of a project layout. FALSE Level: Easy 8. Workcenter layouts allocate the same or similar machines into cells to work on products that have dissimilar shapes and dissimilar processing requirements. FALSE Level: Easy 9. A project layout is characterized by a relatively low number of production units. TRUE Level: Easy 10.

Chapter 07 - Manufacturing Processes 11. Items produced in a project layout are typically managed using project management techniques. TRUE Level: Easy 12. 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. TRUE Level: Medium 13. One trade-off illustrated by the product-process matrix is between flexibility and cost. TRUE Level: Medium 14. The choice of which process structure to select is generally a function of the volume requirements for the product. TRUE Level: Easy 15. Once a choice of position on the product-process matrix is selected change is impossible. FALSE Level: Easy 7-4

Chapter 07 - Manufacturing Processes 16. One methodology used to evaluate equipment investment decisions where the investment entails a large initial investment, fixed costs and variable costs is break-even analysis. TRUE Level: Easy 17. Break-even analysis can only be used in production equipment decision making and deals solely with fixed costs, not variable costs. FALSE
