Instruction Module MGT3373 – Week6 (Heizer 10e) Instructor Comments/Notes: Reminder : In this Instruction Module (and every one to follow) I will ‘recommend’ several textbook discussion questions, even-number exercises, and Case studies for you to attempt/study. Although I will ultimately provide the solutions/answers, I urge you to work them on your own before reading the solution/answer as a pre-test of your comprehension. I will also give you the solutions to additional problems in the Course Material section of my Blackboard page. . The purpose, of course, is to enhance your process of self-study. This mimics what is normally done in a classroom presentation: review of the material and working example problems. PLEASE NOTE: the Self-Test discussion questions, even-numbered exercises, additional problems and Case studies are for your own study and are NOT to be turned in to the instructor. Unless otherwise stated, the ONLY parts of the assignments that are to be submitted each week are the quiz responses. In addition to the specific items posted in the weekly Instruction Modules, I urge all students to do the following: - Go to the Pearson Companion site and practice with the Self-Study Quizzes - Go to the Pearson Companion site and work the Practice Problems - Work the “Solved Problems” in each chapter on your own before reading the solutions Overview: In Chapter 8 “Location Strategies” we will examine the factors which influence the strategic decision on where to locate and organization, an issue which has grown even more complicated in our expanding global economy. Our studies will include several quantitative tools such as; the factor-rating method, locational break-even analysis, the center-of-gravity method and a brief treatment of the transportation model. In Chapter 9, “Layout Strategies” we will examine issues related to physical layout for the office, the retail facility, warehouses and storage facilities. We will discuss several strategies including; fixed-position, process-oriented and product-oriented layouts, as well as the concepts of work cells and assembly lines. Objectives: Chapter 8 After reading this chapter, students will be able to: IDENTIFY OR DEFINE:
