Chapter - Chapter 06 #87 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-02 Design a process flowchart. 88. If an automatic car wash processes 20 cars in one hour, but only 10 cars arrive on average in an hour, then the utilization is 30%. FALSE Utilization is the ratio of the time that a resource is actually activated relative to the time that it is available for use. If an automatic car wash processes 20 cars in one hour, but only 10 cars arrive on average in an hour, then the utilization is 50%.

89. A single-stage process can be analyzed using a single cycle time. TRUE A single-stage process would have all of the activities in the process collapsed and analyzed using a single cycle time to represent its speed. Chapter - Chapter 06 #89 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-02 Design a process flowchart. 90. A multiple-stage process can be analyzed using a single cycle time. FALSE A multiple-stage process has multiple groups of activities that are linked through flows. Chapter - Chapter 06 #90 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-02 Design a process flowchart. 91. A multiple-stage process has multiple groups of activities that are linked through flows. TRUE A multiple-stage process has multiple groups of activities that are linked through flows. Chapter - Chapter 06 #91 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-02 Design a process flowchart. 92. The term "Stage" is used to indicate that multiple activities have been pulled together for analysis purposes. TRUE The term Stage is used to indicate that multiple activities have been pulled together for analysis purposes. Chapter - Chapter 06 #92 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-02 Design a process flowchart.
93. Buffering refers to a storage area between stages where the output of a stage is placed prior to being used in a downstream stage. TRUE Buffering refers to a storage area between stages where the output of a stage is placed prior to being used in a downstream stage. Chapter - Chapter 06 #93 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-03 Evaluate the role of buffers in process flow. 94. Buffering allows stages in a process to operate dependently of one another. FALSE Buffering allows the stages to operate independently. If one stage feeds a second stage with no intermediate buffer, then the assumption is that the two stages are directly linked. Chapter - Chapter 06 #94 Difficulty: Easy Learning Objective: 06-03 Evaluate the role of buffers in process flow. 95. Blocking in a process occurs when the activities in the stage must stop because there is no place to deposit the item just completed.

### What students are saying

• 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.
