Self Assessment Questions 1: a. __________________, variety of products is larger than the batch production and quantities to he produced at a time are significantly lower. b. When a range of products have to be manufactured in quantities which are reasonable hut not large enough to go in for dedicated production line (or assembly line), we go in for production in _________________ which are convenient and acceptable without adding to the cost of manufacturing. c. When goods and services are produced by performing same activities in specified sequence repetitively, we call it a flow shop or ________________________. d. Activity A Maruti 800 is assembled on a conveyor belt with 30 stages, roughly well balanced in terms of cycle time for each stage. The slowest stage has a cycle time of 1.5 minutes and the cycle time at other stages is no more than 1.4 minutes. Each stage is manned by 3 to 5 workers depending upon the total work content at that stage. What would be the increase in production per shift if the work content of the slowest stage is brought lower than 1.4 minutes? Activity B For an item of product, annual demand is 26,000 units and can be produced at the rate of 1000 pieces per week, at a cost of 1000 pieces per week, at a cost of Rs 26/- per unit. If the cost of changeover is Rs 50/- per occasion and cost of carrying inventory is 20%, what is the economic size of production batch?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
