ch6 Student: ___________________________________________________________________________ 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. True False 2. Process selection refers to the strategic decision of selecting which kind of production processes to use to produce a product or provide a service. True False 3. A continuous process indicates production of discrete parts moving from workstation to workstation at a controlled rate. True False 4. One difference between an assembly line process flow and a continuous process flow is that on the assembly line the flow is discrete rather than continuous. True False 5. One trade-off illustrated by the product-process matrix is between flexibility and cost. True False 6. The choice of which process structure to select is generally a function of the volume requirements for the product. True False 7. 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 False 8. Break-even analysis can only be used in production equipment decision making when dealing solely with fixed costs, no variable costs. True False 9. A general purpose machine is less capable than a special purpose machine in certain tasks but can perform a broader variety of tasks. True False 10.

11. The product-process matrix shows the relationship between process structures and product volume and variety characteristics. True False 12. The term "assembly line" refers to progressive assembly linked by some material handling device. True False 13. Workcenter layouts allocate dissimilar machines into cells to work on products that have dissimilar processing requirements. True False 14. A project layout is characterized by a relatively low number of production units in comparison with process and product layout formats. True False 15. A project layout is characterized by a high degree of task ordering. True False 16. The closer the customer is to the customer order decoupling point the longer it takes the customer to receive the product. True False 17. The closer the customer is to the customer order decoupling point the more quickly the customer receives the product. True False 18. Engineer-to-order firms will work with the customer to design the product, and then make it from purchased materials, parts, and components. True False
