Unit 3Scheduling Operations
Chapter 12: Aggregate Planning
Lesson 38-Tutorial 11
 Dear Students, today we are going to have a tutorial session for the previouslesson. The overall objective is to appreciate how the theoretical concepts aretranslated and applied into practical business situations.Let’s put our thinking caps and start now.1. An aggregate plan is a statement of strategy which projects productionrates, work-force levels, and inventory levels for a medium range period,using reduced detail to simplify planning.a. Trueb. False2. In manufacturing organizations, the production plan is the linkage betweenthe strategic goals of the business plan and the work-force schedule.a. Trueb. False3. To achieve aggregate plans, products, labor, and time are grouped incompatible terms to reduce detail and facilitate periodic updating of theplan.a. Trueb. False4. The generation of the Aggregate Plan should be assigned to a groupwhose sole purpose is planning and budget development. This approachwill reduce the potential for conflict among operational units.a. Trueb. False
5. Creative pricing of goods and services is an example of an aggressivealternative for managing demand patterns in aggregate planning.a. Trueb. False6. Producing complementary products (similar resource requirements withdifferent demand cycles) is an example of a reactive alternative for managing patterns of demand in aggregate planning.a. Trueb. False7. Reactive alternatives for achieving acceptable aggregate plans are actionsthat respond to a given demand pattern as opposed to attempts to modifydemand.a. trueb. false8. Both extended overtime and under time are human resource utilizationstrategies that may lead to lower per unit productivity.a. trueb. false9. Four reactive alternative strategies that are used as starting points for aggregate plans can be classified as capacity and inventory strategiesa. Trueb. False10. In the aggregate planning process, alternatives, constraints, and costsmust be identified. The costs include wages, inventory, and facility capitalcosts.a. Trueb. false11. In the aggregate planning process, alternatives, constraints, and costsmust be identified. The costs include wages, inventory, and facility capitalcosts.a. Trueb. False
12. Acceptable aggregate plans involving anticipation inventory requires theuse of a common unit of measure such as employee-period equivalents.a. Trueb. False13 When Total Capacity, product demand, and production costs of goods areknown for each production period, one transportation method solution issufficient to determine the best work-force plan.a. Trueb. False14. A common drawback for the transportation method and linear programming model is the assumption that all costs are linearly related tothe amount of goods produced.a. Trueb. False15. A level strategy is a preferred approach in the service sector when thestaffing plan is developed.a. Trueb. False16.
An aggregate plan for a manufacturing firm includes consideration of:a.
production rates
work-force levels
inventory holdings17. A service firm's aggregate plan links the firm's strategic goals andobjectives with detailed operational plans called:a. production planb. staffing planc. work-force scheduled. none of the above18.
Which of the following statements does NOT apply to a production plan?
a. plans are consistent with company's strategic goals and objectives
