b Student: ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. Technological advances in manufacturing can be classified in two ways: either they are economically justifiable or they are environmentally justifiable. True False 2. Technological advances in manufacturing can be classified in two ways: as hardware systems or as software systems. True False 3. AS/RS stands for automated storage and retrieval systems. True False 4. CAE and CAD software systems are both used in the evaluation of some characteristics of products. True False 5. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing have not been widely adopted because newer and better software versions are consistently seen as being "just around the corner." True False 6. CAE stands for computer-aided engineering and can be used to evaluate engineering characteristics of products. True False 7. CAPP stands for computer aided purchasing program. True False 8. Industrial robots are used as substitutes for workers for many repetitive manual activities, and tasks that are dangerous, dirty, or dull. True False 9. Industrial robots are programmable, multifunctional machines that may be equipped with an end effector. True False 10. A manufacturing cell may consist of a robot and a machining center. True False 11. A manufacturing cell consists of an innovative power supply and data communications interface that has revolutionized the control and reporting function in factories. True False

12. In a flexible manufacturing system a comprehensive computer control system is used to run the entire production system. True False 13. The CIM system is referred to as the "factory of the future." True False 14. The CIM system is referred to as "total factory automation." True False 15. Some robots have vision and tactile sensing capabilities. True False 16. An end effector is a robotic device that signals the completion of a task. True False 17. An end effector is a tool or device that is attached to the end of a robotic arm which performs a function that otherwise would be done manually. True False 18. CAM is a software system that supports and supplants decision making by developing decision alternatives, gathering and analyzing information required for evaluating these alternatives, and identifying either the best decision or a set of good decisions. True False 19. Robots are often justified by reduced overhead charges to the factory. True False 20. Robots are often justified based on labor savings. True False 21. Which of the following operations management technologies is comprised of (1) a typical machine tool used to turn, drill, or grind different types of parts; and (2) a computer that controls the sequence of processes performed by the machine? A. Industrial robots
