Line balancing is a major factor in the design and scheduling of low volume systems because of batch processing.
False
Scheduling in intermediate-volume systems has three basic issues: run size, timing, and sequence.
True
When orders exceed our capacity, priority rules are used to select which orders will be accepted.
False
A schedule chart depicts the loading and idle times for a group of machines or departments.
False
The output of the system cannot exceed the output of the bottleneck operation(s).
True
Sequencing is concerned with the order in which jobs are done, while loading is concerned with assigning assigning jobs to work centers or workstations.
True
Priority rules generally assume that job setup cost is independent of processing sequence of jobs.
True
In the decision-making hierarchy, scheduling decisions are the final step in the transformation process before actual output occurs.
False
Makespan is the total time needed to complete a group of jobs.
True
A major disadvantage of the SPT rule is that it tends to make very short jobs wait for a long time while longer, more important jobs are processed.
False
Scheduling pertains to:
A. hiring workers
B. process selection
C. buying machinery
D. timing the use of specific resources
E. determining the lower cost

One disadvantage of appointment systems is:
A. Capacity can be adjusted by varying hours
B. The customer's desired time may be already taken
C. People generally accept it as fair
D. It can reduce customer waiting time
E. Appointments do not have to be all the same length
B. The customer's desired time may be already taken
