Lean production is an integrated set of activities designed to achieve high-volume production using minimal inventories of raw materials, work in process, and finished goods. True False 2. Henry Ford used JIT concepts as he streamlined his moving assembly lines to make automobiles in the early 1900's. True False 3. Lean production requires a "push & pull" system of inventory replenishment. True False 4. Lean production replaced JIT in the 1990s because JIT did not address the problem of reducing waste. True False 5. Lean production is a management philosophy and a pull system throughout the plant. True False 6. Lean production makes implementing green strategies in manufacturing processes more difficult. True False 7. Green strategies that save energy and fight global warming have broad consumer appeal and political support. True False 8. A recent report recommended that companies report the emissions of Green House Gases that are generated by their supply chain. True False 9. Group technology is a philosophy wherein similar parts are grouped together and the processes required to make the parts are arranged as a work cell. True False 10.

True False 16. JIT is typically applied to non-repetitive manufacturing. True False 17. JIT manufacturing forces a firm to work with a lower water level despite safety hazards. True False 18. A principle of value stream mapping is to concentrate on speeding up value-added operations. True False 19. Value stream mapping is a technique that aims to eliminate waste in a process. True False 20. Uniform plant loading is where you schedule production with different amounts of the same product each day of the week to permit variation to meet changing demand requirements. True False 21. Uniform plant loading is a process of smoothing the production activity flow to dampen the reaction waves that normally occur in response to schedule variations. True False
