Unformatted text preview: 1 Lesson 07 Process Selection & Capacity Planning Q&A 20. A basic question in capacity planning is: A. what kind is needed B. how much is needed C. when is it needed D. all of the above E. none of the above 21. Which of these factors wouldn't be subtracted from design capacity when calculating effective capacity? A. personal time B. maintenance C. scrap D. operating hours per day E. all of the above would be subtracted in the calculation 22. A reason for the importance of capacity decisions is that capacity: A. limits the rate of output possible B. affects operating costs C. is a major determinant of initial costs D. is a long-term commitment of resources E. all of the above 23. Which of the following is the case where capacity is measured in terms of inputs? A. hospital B. theater C. restaurant D. all of the above E. none of the above 24. Unbalanced systems are evidenced by … A. Top heavy operations B. Labor unrest C. Bottleneck operations D. Increasing capacities E. Assembly lines 25. Maximum capacity refers to the upper limit of: A. inventories B. demand C. supplies D. rate of output E. finances 26. The impact that a significant change in capacity will have on a key vendor is a: A. supply chain factor B. process limiting factor C. internal factor D. human resource factor E. operational process factor 27. The maximum possible output given a product mix, scheduling difficulties, quality factors, and so on, is: A. utilization B. design capacity C. efficiency D. effective capacity E. available capacity 2 28. Efficiency is defined as the ratio of: A. actual output to effective capacity B. actual output to design capacity C. design capacity to effective capacity D. effective capacity to actual output E. design capacity to actual output 29.
