ch6a Student: ___________________________________________________________________________ 1. A workcenter is a basic production layout format in which similar equipment or functions are grouped together. True False 2. An Assembly line layout is similar to the basic production layout format of flow-shop layout. True False 3. A manufacturing cell layout is similar to the workcenter and assembly line layouts. True False 4. A manufacturing cell groups identical machines together to work on products having similar shapes and processing requirements. True False 5. A workcenter layout is similar to the basic production layout format of job-shop. True False 6. A project layout is similar to the basic production layout format of the workcenter. True False 7. Systematic layout planning is used to design products. True False 8. The assembly-line balancing procedure determines the precedence relationships of manufacturing tasks. True False 9. Assembly lines are a special case of product layout. True False 10. Assembly lines are a special case of a project layout. True False 11. 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. True False

12. The efficiency of an assembly-line is found by a ratio of the sum of all task times divided by the cycle time. True False 13. 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. True False 14. In balancing an assembly line, workstation cycle time has to be less than the time between successive units coming off the end of the line. True False 15. If the sum of the task times required to produce a product is 45 minutes and the cycle time for the same product is 10 minutes. Thus, the theoretical minimum number of workstations is 5 using the assembly-line balancing procedure. True False 16. The first step in balancing an assembly line is to specify the precedence relationships among tasks to be performed on the line. True False 17. The term "assembly line" refers to progressive assembly linked by some material handling device. True False 18. If the sum of the task times required to produce a product is 80 minutes and the cycle time for the same product is 15 minutes, the theoretical minimum number of workstations is 8 using the assembly-line balancing procedure. True False 19. In designing a production layout a flexible line layout might have the shape of a "U". True False 20. In designing a production line a mixed-model line layout is used by JIT manufacturers. True False 21. The objective of a mixed-model line layout is to meet the demand for a variety of products and avoid building high inventories. True False
