The master production schedule states the number of items to be produced during specific time periods. True False 7. MRP is least valuable in industries where a number of products are made in batches using the same productive equipment. True False 8. MRP is a logical, easily understandable approach to the problem of determining the number of parts, components, and materials needed to produce each end item. True False 9.

items tend to smooth out and become even over time. True False 12. A master production schedule is an input to a material requirements planning (MRP) system. True False 13. An input to the material requirements planning (MRP) system is an exception report. True False 14. An input to the material requirements planning (MRP) system is an inventory records file. True False 15. An output of MRP is a bill of materials (BOM) file. True False 16. A BOM file is often called a product structure file or product tree because it shows how a product is put together. True False 17. Computing the quantity of each component that goes into a finished product can be done by expanding (or exploding) each item in a product structure file and summing at all levels. True False 18. A modular bill of materials includes items with fractional options. True False 19. A modular bill of materials is the term for an item that can be produced and stocked as a subassembly. True False 20. The MRP program performs its analysis from the bottom up of the product structure trees, imploding requirements level by level. True False 21. Net change MRP systems are "activity" driven. True False 22. In a net change MRP system requirements and schedules are updated whenever a transaction is processed that has an impact on the item. True False
