reflect organizational learning. There may be
procedural differences in the manner that
different firms collect and report
data. Companies don't always report sensitive

different. The cumulative number of units
produced is different.
15

19
Which of the following is a major factor that
distinguishes service design and development
from manufacturing design and development? Capacit
y decisions are much more critical in
manufacturing operations. Manufacturing is far
more capital intensive than services. The service

goods. The service package is the major output of
the development process.
The customer order decoupling point determines

of time and require a lot of team pride,
motivation, and commitment by all members. Which
project management structure should you use in
this situation? Pure project PERT Task force

Link parallel activities instead of integrating
their results. Organize around outcomes not tasks.

a forecast for unit demand for year 2014 using
exponential smoothing. The actual demand in year
2013 was 120. The forecast demand in year 2013
was 110. Using these data and a smoothing

do a task will vary randomly each time the task
is repeated. Unit time will decrease at an
increasing rate. Learning will not be transferred
from one worker to the next. The reduction in
unit time will follow a predictable pattern.
11. A company's production process has an 80
percent learning curve rate. The process has
produced 1,000 units to date. A process
refinement is estimated to allow a future
learning curve rate for the identical product of
75 percent. However, the initial unit made using
the new process will take the same amount of
time as the initial unit produced using the old
process. At what point, using the new process,
will the production rate exceed the production

unit

unit of inventory of 150? None of
these 1,501,600 1,498,200 499,313 500,687
37
A.
1,501,600
Q 400. Average Inventory Q/2 200. Holding

800. Annual set-up cost 10,000/400 25 x
32 800. Demand x cost per unit 10,000 x 150
1,500,000. Hence, TC 1,500,000 800 800
1,501,600. 16. Which of the following is a

services. The service process and service product
can be developed independently. The service
package has the same legal protection available
to manufactured goods. The service package is
the major output of the development process.
