Which one of the following is not a concern expressed by suppliers?a.desire for diversification b.poor customer schedulingc.small lot sizesd.proximity e.customers' infrequent engineering changes 19. Which of the following is not a JIT influence on layout design?a.distance reduction b.increased flexibilityc.reduced space and inventory d.supplier location near the JIT firm 20. Just-in-time systems make demands on layouts, includinga.distance reduction b.increased flexibilityc.reduced space and inventoryd.cross-trained, flexible employees e.all of the above are JIT influences on layout 21. Which one of the following is not a layout tactic in a JIT environment?a.work cells for families of products b.fixed equipment c.minimizing distanced.little space for inventorye.poka-yoke devices22.

It is the minimum inventory necessary to keep a perfect system running .c.It hides variability.d.It is minimized with large lot production.e.It increases if setup costs decrease.23. Which of the following is not a benefit of small production lots?a.work-in-process inventory is smaller  b.fewer setups c.workstations can be placed closer together d.manufacturing cycle time is shorter 24. Level schedulesa.requires that schedules be met without variation b.processes many small batches rather than one large onec.is known as jelly bean schedulingd.is based on meeting one day's demand with that day's production e.all of the above are true regarding level scheduling 25. Which one of the following statements is true about the Kanban system?a.The quantities in the containers are usually large to reduce setup costs. b.It is associated with a push system.c.It is useful to smooth operations when numerous quality problems occur.d. The customer work station signals to the supplier work station when production is needed .  26.Kanban is associated with all of the following excepta.signaling when it is time for the next batch b.reducing setup timec.reducing batch size d.increasing material handling 27.The word kanban meansa.low inventory b.employee empowerment c.card d.continuous improvement28.Which one of the following scenarios represents the use of a kanban to reduce inventories?a.A supervisor tells the operators to stay busy and start producing parts for next month. b.A supplier work center signals to the downstream workstation that a batch has been completed.c.A supervisor signals to several work centers that the production rate should be changed. d.A customer work center signals to the supplier workstation that more parts are needed. 29.Which of the following JIT principles is(are) not ordinarily applicable in restaurants?a.close relationship with food suppliers b.food preparation in large batches c.a kitchen set up to minimize wasteful movementsd.lean inventories of food30.The number of kanbans isa.one b.the ratio of the reorder point (ROP) to container size c.the same as EOQd.one full day's production31.Which of the following is an illustration of employee empowerment?a.UPS drivers are trained to perform several motions smoothly and efficiently. b.Unionization of the workplace brings better morale and therefore better quality. c.
