Introduction to Production / Operations Management

THE PRODUCTION/OPERATIONS FUNCTION IN BUSINESS


TRUE/FALSE
1. Production/operations Management refers to creation of goods whereas production refers to the creation of services. 2. All organisations, including service organizations such as banks and educational institutions, have a production function. 3. Production is a creation of goods and services. 4. W. Edwards Deming is known as the Father of Scientific Management. 5. Lillian Gilbreth is credited for the early popularization of interchangeable parts. 6. The person most responsible for initiating use of interchangeable parts in manufacturing was Whitney Houston. 7. The origins of the scientific management movement are generally credited to James Taylor. 8. Operations Management is the set of the activities that create goods and services by transforming inputs into outputs. 9. Operations Management only applies to the creation of tangible goods. 10. An example of a hidden production function is money transfers at banks. 11. Operations management has benefited from advances in other fields of study. 12. In order to have a career in operations management, one must have a degree in statistics or quantitative methods. 13. The operations manager performs the management activities of planning, organizing, staffing, leading, and controlling of the POM function. 14. Should we make or buy this item? is within the Human Resources and Job Design critical decision area. 15. Marketing is one of the three functions critical to an organizations survival. 16. Students wanting to pursue a career in operations management will find multi-disciplinary knowledge beneficial. 17. The quality of a product is more difficult to measure than that of a service. 18. Consumer interaction is often high during the manufacturing process. 19. A company is considered excellent only if it is the best in its business. 20. The three primary functions in a business organization are operations/production, finance, and marketing. 21. Business functions are autonomous, thus each function can set objectives without much coordination. 22. In batch manufacturing, a few or several products share the same production resources. 23. Productivity and quality are easier to measure in manufacturing operations than in service operations. 24. Since customers are present in all service operations, service operations can provide only custom services. 25. Batch manufacturing must be capable of performing a wider variety of tasks as compared to job shop manufacturing. 26. A project for a service organization might be development of a computer software package. 27. There is a clear dividing line between manufacturing operations and service operations. 28. Specialization means each component of a product is fashioned to fit that particular item and should not fit any other item. 29. Because of the use of specialization, the industrial revolution brought about the need for a less formal procedure and a less sophisticated method of management. 30. Management Science (because of its use of mathematical theory) is the same as scientific management. 31. The primary difference between Taylors study of management and Fayols is that Fayols was a top-down approach, with emphasis on overall administration, whereas Taylors study was a bottom-up approach, with an emphasis on shop management. 32. The Industrial Revolution began in Japan.

Introduction to Production / Operations Management


33. According to Adam Smith, specialization was more likely to lead to the development of mechanical devices to assist operations. 34. Sergio Farmersons success is attributable to the use of specialization and interchangeable parts. 35. In using F. Taylors scientific management, a duty of management was to select the best worker for a job, so that not much time or money need be spent on training. 36. Quality is easier to measure in a service organization. 37. An organizations mission statement is its broad statement of purpose. 38. Once an organizations mission has been decided upon, each functional area within the firm determines its own supporting mission. 39. Operations strategies are implemented in the same way in all types of organizations. 40. An organizations behaviour will be optimized if each of its departments optimizes their behaviours independently. 41. Top-level managers usually define the missions of each functional area, and then merge these missions to define the mission of the organization. 42. Strategies are mostly the same from one manufacturing company to another. 43. An organizations mission and its strategy are basically the same thing. 44. An organizations mission statement provides a plan of action. 45. An organizations strategy provides the purpose of the organization. 46. Differentiation, cost, and response are the three strategies for achieving competitive advantage. 47. An organizations ability to generate unique advantages over competitors is central to a successful strategy implementation. 48. Errors made within the location decision area may overwhelm efficiencies in other areas. 49. Decisions regarding quality are among the core decisions of POM. 50. Decisions regarding the location are among the core decisions of POM. 51. In order to maintain focus, an organizations strategy must not change during the products life cycle. 52. Opportunities and threats are classified as internal factors of strategy development. 53. Strategies change because an organizations internal strengths and weaknesses may change. 54. The operations function is most likely to be successful when the operations strategy is integrated with other functional areas. 55. For the greatest chance of success, an organizations POM strategy must support the companys strategy. 56. Taylors shop system was directed principally at improving the performance of top managers. 57. Time study, motion study and work sampling were all important techniques in scientific management. 58. Most of the techniques and approaches of scientific management eventually were developed into the modern field of industrial engineering. 59. New P/O Management computer applications today are in the areas of payrolls, billings, cost reports and inventory transactions. 60. Production functions are usually called manufacturing departments in manufacturing firms and operations departments in retailing and tracking firms.

DECISION MAKING
A. TRUE / FALSE
1. The decision maker has the option to choose the best state of nature available. 2. Decision-making under risk is issued when probability information about the states of nature is unavailable. 3. The consequence of each alternative needs to be known when using decision making under certainty. 4. Decision-making under risk requires the use of a payoff table. 5. The maximum criterion leads to a pessimistic alternative that is appropriate when the decision-making is seeking to avoid risk. 6. The equally likely criterion leads to an optimistic alternative that is appropriate when the decision-making is seeking to be exposed to risk. 7. The criterion of realism relies on a weighted average approach when choosing an alternative. 8. Minimax regret calculates the expected monetary value of each alternative thereby minimizing any regret. 9. To maximax criterion is part of decision making under uncertainty. 10. Calculate the probabilities for various states of nature are a step of Decision Theory process.

The following table reveals the demand for Christmas trees. Demand 50 75 100 125 150 175 200 Probability 0.05 0.10 0.20 0.30 0.20 0.10 0.05

Ilhan sells trees for 15 MU each, but his cost is only 6 MU. a. How many trees should Ilhan stock at his hardware store? b. If the cost increased to 12 MU per tree and Ilhan continues to sell trees for 17 MU each, how many trees should Ilhan stock? c. Ilhan is thinking about increasing the price to 18 MU per tree. Assume that the cost/tree is 6MU. It is expected that the probability of selling 50, 75, 100, or 125 trees will be 0.25 each. Ilhan does not expect to sell more than 125 trees with this price increase. What do you recommend? 8. In addition to selling Christmas trees during the Christmas holidays, Ilhans Hardware sells all the ordinary hardware items. One of the most popular items is Great Glue HD, glue that is made just for Ilhans Hardware. The selling price is 2 MU per bottle, but unfortunately the glue gets hard and unusable after one month. The cost of the glue is 0.75 MU. During the past several months, the means sales of glue have been 60 units, and the standard deviation is 7. How many bottles of glue should Ilhans Hardware stock? Assume that sales follow a normal distribution. 9. Demir Chemical, Inc, develops industrial chemicals that are used by other manufacturers to p roduce photographic chemicals, preservatives, and lubricants. One of their products, MHD-158, is used by several photographic companies to make a chemical that is used in the film developing process. To produce MHD-158 efficiently, Demir Chemical uses the batch approach, in which a certain number of gallons is produced at one time. This reduces set-up costs and allows Demir Chemical to produce MHD-158 at a competitive price. Unfortunately, MHD158 has a very short shelf life of about one month. Demir Chemical produces MHD-158 in batches of 500 gallons, 1000 gallons, 1500 gallons, and 2000 gallons. Using historical data, Mehmet Demir was able to determine that the probability of selling 500 gallons of MHD-158 is 0.2. The probabilities of selling 1000, 1500 and 2000 gallons are 0.3, 0.4, and 0.1 respectively. The question facing Mehmet is how many gallons to produce of MHD-158 in the next batch run. MHD-158 sells for 20 MU/gallon. Manufacturing cost is 12 MU/gallon, and handling and warehousing costs are estimated to be 1 MU/gallon. In the past, Mehmet has allocated advertising costs to MHD-158 at 3 MU/gallon. If MHD-158 is not sold after the batch run, the chemical loses much of its important properties as a developer. It can, however, be sold at a salvage value of 13MU/gallon. Furthermore, Mehmet has guaranteed to his suppliers that there will always be an adequate supply of MHD-158. If Mehmet does run out, he has agreed to purchase a comparable chemical from a competitor at 25 MU/gallon. Mehmet sells the entire chemical at 20 MU/gallon. Mehmet sells the entire chemical at 20 MU/gallon, so his shortage means that Mehmet loses the 5 MU to buy more expensive chemical. a. Develop a decision tree of this problem. b. What is the best solution? c. Determine the EVPI

Serin Cumbul is not sure what she could do. She can build a quadplex (i.e. building with four apartments), build a duplex, gather additional information or simply do nothing. If she gathers additional information, the result could be either favorable or unfavorable, but it would cost her 3 000 MU to gather the information. Serin believes that there is a 50-50 chance that the information will be favorable. If the rental market is favorable, Serin will earn 15 000 MU with the quadplex or 5 000 MU with the duplex. Serin does not have the financial resources to do both. With an unfavorable rental market, however, Serin could lose 20 000 MU with the quadflex or 10 000 MU with the duplex. Without gathering additional information, Serin estimates that the obability of a favorable rental market is 0.7. A favorable report from the study would increase the probability of a favorable rental market to 0.9. Furthermore, an unfavorable report from the additional information would decrease the probability of a favorable rental market to 0.4. Of course, Serin could forget all of these numbers and do nothing. What is your advice to Serin? 11. The Steak and Chop Butcher Shop purchases from a local meatpacking house. The meat is purchased on Monday at 2.00 MU/kg and the shop sell the steak for 3.00 MU/kg. Any steak left over at the end of the week is sold to a local zoo for 0.50 MU/kg. The possible demands for steak and the probability for each are as follows: Demand (kg) 20 21 22 23 24 Probability 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.3 0.1

The shop must decide how much steak to order in a week? 12. Place-Plus, a real estate development firm, is considering several alternative development projects.

13. The Magusa Livestock Company receives order for an average of 6000 dozen quail eggs a week. The standard deviation of weekly orders is 425 dozen. The eggs cost 7 MU/dozen and are resold for 10 MU/dozen. If the eggs are not shipped within a week, their fertility is impaired and Magusa`s can not sell them as first-quality; they can however be sold for 1 MU/dozen. Calculate Magusa`s optimum weekly order of eggs. 14. The manager must decide how many machines of certain type to buy. The machines will be used to manufacture a new gear for which there is increased demand. The manager has narrowed the decision to two alternatives: buy one machine or buy two. If only one machine is purchased and demand is more than it can handle, a second machine can be purchased at a later time. However, the cost per machine would be lower if the two machines were purchased at the same time. The estimated probability of low demand is 0.30, and the estimated probability of high demand is 0.70. The net present value associated with the purchase of two machines initially is 75 000 MU if demand is low, and 130 000 MU if demand is high. The net present value for one machine and low demand is 90 000 MU. If demand is high, there are three options: One option is to do nothing, which would have a net present value of 90 000 MU. A second option is to subcontract; that would have a net present value of 110 000 MU. The third option is to purchase a second machine. This option would have a net present value of 100 000 MU. How many machines should the manager purchase initially? (Use a decision tree to analyse this problem.) 15. A company is faced with the decision of how many units of product to prepare before the tourism season at the local market. Each unit of product costs 3 MU and sells for 12 MU per unit. Past records indicate that 3 500 units are enough to prevent any shortage, and this is the number prepared before tourism season in the past 10 years. Unsold product is disposed of at a total loss. The following data summarizes the sales history. DEMAND FREQUENCY 2 700 8 2 800 12 2 900 20 3 000 25 3 100 15 3 200 10 3 300 5 3 400 5 3 500 10 a.

A) A group of medical professional is considering the construction of a private cardiology clinic, Hospital of Cardiology (HOC). If the medical demand is high (i.e. there is a favorable market for the clinic), the physicians could realize a net profit of 100000 MU. If the market is not favorable, they could lose 40000 MU. Of course they do not have to proceed at all, in which case there is no cost. In the absence of any market data, the best the physicians guess is that there is a 50 50 chance the clinic will be successful. Construct a decision tree to help analyzing this problem. What should the medical professionals do? B) The phsycians have been approached by a market research firm that offers to perform a study of the market at a fee of 5 000 MU. The market researchers claim their experience enables them to use Bayes` theorem to make the following statements of probability; Probability of a favorable market given a favorable study = 0.82 Probability of a unfavorable market given a favorable study = 0.18 Probability of a favorable market given an unfavorable study = 0.11 Probability of an unfavorable market given an unfavorable study = 0.89 Probability of a favorable research study = 0.55 Probability of an unfavorable research study = 0.45 a.

25. A firm that plans to expand its product line must decide whether to build a large or a small plant to produce the new products. If it builds a large plant and demand is high, the estimated net present value is 80 000 MU. If demand turns out to be low, the net present value will be -1 000 MU. The probability that demand will be high is estimated to be 0.70. If a small plant is built and the demand is low, the net present value after deducting for building costs will be 40 000 MU. If the demand is high, the firm can either maintain the small plant or expand it. Expansion would have a net present value of 45 000 MU, and maintaining small plant would have a net present value of 5 000 MU. The probability of low demand is 0.40. a. analyze using a tree diagram. b. compute the EVPI. How would this information be used? 26.

Melcola has three alternatives: Alternative 1 Test market Melcola locally, then utilize the results of the market study to determine wherher to market Melcola nationally. Alternative 2 Immediately (without test marketing) market Melcola nationally. Alternative 3 Immediately (without test marketing) decide not to market Melcola nationally. In the absence of a market study Azim Kola believes that Melcola has a 55% chance of being a national success and a 45% chance of being a national failure. If Melcola is a national success, Azim Kola`s asset position will increase by 600 000 MU, and if Melcola is a national failure, Azim Kola`s asset position will decrease by 200 000 MU. If Azim Kola performs a market study (at a cost of 60 000 MU), there is a 60% chance that the study will yield favourable results (referred to as a local success) and a 40% chance that the study will yield unfavourable results (referred to as a local failure). If a local success is observed, there is an 85% chance that Melcola will be a national success. If a local failure is observed, there is only 10% chance that Azim Kola will be a national success. If Azim Kola is a risk-neutral (wants to maximise its expected final asset position), what strategy should the company follow?

74. Azim Furniture Co. handles several lines of furniture, one of which is the popular Layback Model TT Chair. The manager, Mr. Sergio Farmerson, has decided to determine by use of the EOQ model the best quantity to obtain in each order. Mr. Farmerson has determined from past invoices that he has sold about 200 chairs during each of the past five years at a fairly uniform rate, and he expects to continue at that rate. He has estimated that preparation of an order and other variable costs associated with each order are about 10 MU, and it costs him about 1.5% per month to hold items in stock. His cost for the chair is 87 MU. a. How many layback chairs should be ordered each time? b. How many orders would there be? c. Determine the approximate length of a supply order in days. d. Calculate the minimum total inventory cost. e. Show and verify that the total holding cost is equal to the annual ordering cost (due to rounding the figures may be approximately equal 75. Suppose that TT Beverage Co. has a soft-drink product that has a constant annual demand rateof 3 600 cases. A case of the soft drink costs TT 3 MU. Ordering costs are 20 MU per order and holding costs are 25% of the value of the inventory. There are 250 working days per year and the lead-time is 5 days. Identify the following aspects of the inventory policy. a. Economic order quantity. b. Reorder point. c. Cycle time (in days). d. Total annual inventory cost. e. A general property of the EOQ inventory model is that total inventory holding and total ordering costs are equal at the optimal solution. Use data above to show that this result is true.

Azim Electronics supplies microcomputer circuitry to a company that incorporates microprocessors into refrigerators and other appliances. One of the components has an annual demand of 250 units, and this is constant throughout the year. Carrying cost is estimated to be 1 MU/unit/year and the ordering cost is 20 MU/order. a. To minimize cost, how many units should be ordered each time an order is placed? b. How many orders per year are needed with the optimal policy? c. What is the average inventory if costs are minimized? d. Suppose the ordering cost is not 20 MU, and Azim has been ordering 150 units each time an order is placed. For this order policy to be optimal, what would the ordering cost have to be? 77. Azim Accessories produces paper slicers used in offices and art stores. The minislicer has been one of its most popular items: Annual demand is 6 750 units and is constant throughout the year. Minislicers are produced in batches. On average, the firm can manufacture 125 minislicers/day. Demand for these slicers during the production process is 30 minislicers/day. The set-up cost for the equipment necessary to produce the minislicers is 150 MU. Carrying costs are 1 MU/minislicer per year. How many minislicers should Azim manufacture in each batch?

Sergio Farmerson is the owner of a small company that produces electric scissors use to cut fabric. The annual demand is for 8 000 scissors, and Sergio produce 150 scissors per day, and during the production process, demand for scissors has been about 40 scissors per day. The cost to set-up the production process is 100 MU, and it costs Sergio 0.30 MU to carry one pair of scissors for one year. How many scissors should Sergio produce in each batch? 79. A. The Call-Us Plumbing Co. stocks thousands of plumbing items sold to regional plumbers, contractors, and retailers. The firms general manager wonders how much money could be saved annually if EOQ were used instead of the firms present rules of thumb. He instructs an inventory analyst to conduct an analysis of one material to see if significant savings might result from using the EOQ. Necessary information is as follows: C = 10 000 units/year Xcurrent = present order quantity = 400 units/order E = 0.40 MU/unit/year B = 5.50 MU/order

B. The Co. has an adjacent production department that could produce the item. If the units were produced in-house in production lots, they would flow gradually into inventory at the main warehouse for use. The carrying cost, ordering or set-up cost and annual demand would remain about the same. Because the units actually flow into inventory rather than being received all at once as a batch. The firms general manager wonders how this would effect the order quantity and annual stocking (inventory) cost. The estimates are; C = 10 000 units/year E = 0.40 MU/unit/year s = 5.50 MU/order R = 120 units/day 1 year = 250 working days
C. If the general manager to back-order some units and to fill each back-order as soon as the order cycle is completed. If the cost estimation indicates back-order cost as 5.60 MU/order. Find how this would effect the order quantity and annual inventory cost. 80. The manager of a bottling (bottle-filling)plant which bottles soft drinks needs to decide how long a run of each type of drink to ask the lines to process. Demand for each type of drink is reasonably constant at 80 000 per month (a month has 160 production hours).The bottling lines fill ata rate of 3 000 bottles per hour but take an hour to change over between different drinks. The cost of each changeover (cost of labour and lost production capacity) has been calculated at 100 MU/hour. Stock holding costs are counted at 0.1 MU/bottle-month. a. How many bottles the company produce on each run?

b. The staff who operate the lines have devised a method of reducing the changeover time from 1 hour to 30 minutes. How would that change the Economic Lot Size?

81. Jantsan Co. makes and sells specialty hubcaps for the retail automobile aftermarket. Jantsan`s forecast for its hubcap is 1000 units next year, with an average daily demand of 4 units. However, the production process is most efficient at 8 units per day. (So the Co. produces 8 per day but uses only 4 per day.) Given the following values, solve for the optimum number of units per run. Annual demand = C = 1 000 units Set-up cost = s = 10 MU Holding cost = E = 0.50 MU/unit/year Daily production rate = R = 8 units daily 82. As a part of a factory-wide JIT program to reduce set-up times so that production lot sizes can be smaller, a firm wants to determine what length of the set-up time of a manufacturing operation should be in order to accommodate an OLS of 10 units of a part. A production analyst has developed these data for the operation: C = 10 000 units/year c = 250 units/day R = 500 units/day OLS = 10 units/run E = 5 MU/unit/year s = ? (to be determined) If the labour rate for the operation is 10 MU/hour, what set-up time results in an economic production lot size of 10 units? 83. Carpet Discount Store in Gazimagusa stocks carpet in its warehouse and sells it through an adjoining showroom. The store keeps several brands and styles of carpet in stock; however, its biggest seller is Super Shag Carpet. Given an estimated annual demand of 10 000 meters of carpet, an annual carrying cost of 0.75 MU/meter, and an ordering cost of 150 MU/order, the store wants to determine a. the optimal order size b. total inventory cost for this brand of carpet c. total ordering cost and verify it is of total inventory cost d. the number of orders that will be made annually e. the time between orders (The store is open 311 days annually.) 84. Assume that the Carpet Discount Store has its own manufacturing facility in which it produces Super Shag Carpet. We will further assume that the ordering cost, B, is the cost of setting up the production process to make Super Shag carpet. Daily demand is 32 meters and daily production is 32 meters of the carpet. Determine and interpret the optimal lot size. 85. Assume now Carpet Discount Store allows shortages and the shortage cost, d, is 4 MU/metre/year. All other costs are as follows; Annual demand: 10 000 meters Annual Carrying Cost: 0.75 MU/meter/year Ordering Cost: 150 MU/order Total working days: 311 days/year Find; a. the optimal order size b. the shortage level c. the maximum inventory level d. the total minimum inventory cost e. the total number of orders per year f. the time between orders g. the time during which inventory is on hand h. the time during which there is a shortage 86. Bur-Al Auto Sales is offering a special car attachment at the unheard-of-price of 2000 MU/unit. The attachment cost Bur-Al 1400 MU/unit. Unsold units can be salvaged for 600 MU/unit.

35. The Double-T Corporation manufactures two electrical products: air-conditioners and large fans. The assembly process for each is similar in that both require a certain amount of wiring and drilling. Each air conditioner takes 3 hours of wiring and 2 hours of drilling. Each fan must go through 2 hours of wiring and 1 hour of drilling. During the next production period 240 hours of wiring time are available and up to 140 hours of drilling time may be used. Management decides that to ensure an adequate supply of air conditioners for a contract, at least 20 air conditioners should be produced. Because Double-T incurred an oversupply of fans in the preceding period; management also insists that no more than 80 fans be produced during this production period. Each air conditioner sold yields a profit of 25 MU. Each fan assembled may be sold for a 15 MU profit. Formulate and solve this LP production mix situation to find the best combination of air conditioners and fans that yields the highest profit.

E. ESSAY TYPE QUESTIONS


16. Examples of pure services include university lectures, many physical examinations, and legal opinions. Information is being transformed, primarily into usable knowledge. There may be some consumption of physical materials during the service process, but that is not transformation. 17. In pure services the customer is usually involved in the service operation; pure service might therefore be synonymous with the high contact service. The customer therefore has a direct say in the type and quality of the service, and the time required to perform the service. Quasi Manufacturing, or low contact, services do not involve the customer in the performance of the service itself, although the customer may be at a service desk close to the actual operation. In a manufacturing operation the customer is likely to be close to the operation at all. The further removed the customer, the less the ability to influence the performance of the operation at the time at which it is being performed and, therefore, the need to more clearly and comprehensively state needs and expectations before the operation starts. From the operators point of view, the more influence the customer has in the process the greater the degree of uncertainty that needs to be accommodated. The closer to the customer, therefore, the greater the need for appropriate surplus resources, the more complicated the resource scheduling and the higher the likely cost to the customer. 18. Taylor and his associates concentrated on the problems of foremen, superintendents, and lower middle managers in factories because it was here that most of managements problems of the day were found. What was needed most was mass production and efficiency in the factories to respond to the great western markets.

A number of inventions such as steam engine, the spinning Jenny, and the power loom helped to bring about to bring this change. There also were ample supplies of coal and iron ore to provide the necessary materials for generating the power to operate and build the machines which were much stronger and more durable than the simple wooden ones they replaced.

b. Frederic W. Taylor, who is often referred as the father of scientific management, spearheaded the scientific management movement. The science of management was based on observation, measurement, analysis, improvement of work methods and economic incentives. Management should be responsible for planning, carefully selecting and training workers, finding the best way to perform each job, achieving cooperation between management and workers, and separating management activities from work activities. c. Parts of a product made to such precision that each part would fit any of the identical items being produced. It meant that individual parts would not have to be custom made because they were standardised. d. Breaking up a production process into a series of tasks, each performed by a different worker. It enabled workers to learn jobs and become proficient at the more quickly; avoiding the delays of workers shifting from one activity to another. 32. McDonalds is either, or, or both, depending on the unit of analysis. At the counter McDonalds is a service; in the back of restaurant operations McDonalds is very much a manufacturing. This points out the need to carefully identify the aspect of the firms operations that is being analysed.

FORECASTING
A. MULTIPLE CHOICE
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. a. b. a. e. b. b. a. recent small relies on the power of written arguments (a) and (b) causal forecasting false overall accuracy of the forecast

B. ESSAY
Demand is a measure of the amount desired by customers. Sales measures the amount actually purchased by customers. Sales will actually reflect demand if there have been no stock-outs. Demand can only be forecast from historical sales data if there have been no stock-outs, or if the data are adjusted for stock-outs. 2. Qualitative Method forecasts which rely on the judgment of individuals or groups. Qualitative forecasts are useful for long range time horizons and for such purposes as process design, capacity planning and facilities location. They are most useful when historic data exists or when existing data are not applicable. Time Series Method forecasts which assume that time is the only important independent variable. Time series forecasts are primarily useful in the short range for purposes such as materials management, purchasing, and scheduling. Causal Method forecasts which assume that the variable to be forecast is causally related to one or more intrinsic or extrinsic variables. Causal models are primarily useful in the medium range for aggregate planning and budgeting. They may be useful in the long range if applicable historic data exist and in the short range if the cost of the method is low relative to its benefits. 3. When a manager of a local firm says hes doing 25% more business than before, he is tacitly acknowledging that he has made a forecast. The forecast is subjective, and perhaps unconscious, but he is assuming that has happened in the past will persist in the future. It would undoubtedly be improved if it were performed in a methodical, systematic manner. 4. Qualitative (Judgmental) forecasts tend to be variable among individual forecasters, difficult to analyse, not precise, and lacking an objective basis for improvement. They do, however, have some advantages over objective forecasts in that they can incorporate intangible and subjective inputs along with objective ones. Thus they may, at times, be better than objective methods. 5. The smoothing constant dictates how much weight should be given to the past versus current demand. A high value of emphasizes recent demand and causes the forecast to follow demand closely. A low value damps out fluctuations and yields a much smoothed forecast. 6. Regression and correlation methods are similar in that both describe the association among two or more variables. They may be simple or multiple, linear or nonlinear, depending upon the data. The regression equation states how the dependent variable changes as a result of changes in the independent variable. The regression curve expresses the nature of the relationship between two or more variables. Correlation is different in that it is a means of expressing the degree of relationship between two or more variables which are not considered dependent upon one another, but rather of equal status. 8. The Delphi Method involves a panel of (usually) anonymous people who fill in questionnaires and return them to the coordinator. The consolidated results are sent out again; the outliers are required to explain the reasons for their divergence from general consensus. This process is repeated for a set number of rounds or until consensus is reached, whichever is sooner. Studies show that the general public are likely as experts to produce reasonable forecasts.

The significance of value of r = 0.90 can, however, be tested under a hypothesis that there is no correlation between the number of permits and demand for plasterboard shipments, that is, Hor = 0. The computed value of r (statistical-t value of r) is compared with a tabled value of r (theoretical-t value of r) for a given size (n = 8) and significance level of 5%. If the statistical-t value of r ( tc ) > theoretical-t value of r (tk), the hypothesis is rejected, the correlation is deemed significant at specified level. tc = |r|[(n-2)/(1-r2)] tc =| 0.9|[(8-2)/(1-0.81)] tc = 5.06 Level of significance () = 0.05 Degree of freedom (n-2) = 6 From student-t table tk = 2.447 tc > tk 5.06 > 2.447 The hypothesis is rejected.

a. Regression forecasting equation is found as follows; y = n.a + b.x (1) 123 = 9a + 188b (1) xy = x + bx2 (2) 2792 = 188 a + 4502b (2) b = 0.3757 Substitute b=0.3757 in Equation (1), we get 123 = 9a + 188(0.3757) a = 5.818 Therefore the regression forecasting equation is Y = 5.818 + 0.3757 b. If we suppose that there are 25 new housing permits granted in 2008, the sales for 2008 will be Y2008 = 5.818 + 0.3757 (25) Y2008 = 15.211 = 15 211 m2 of carpet (This assumes that the number of housing permits issued in a year is known at the beginning of the year.) c. The correlation coefficient is calculated as follows; r = [nxy - xy] /[nx2 (x)2][ny2 (y)2] r = [9(2792) (188)(123)] / [9(4502) (188)2][9(1780) (123)2] r = 2004 / (5174)(891) r= 0.93 There is a very strong relationship between number of housing permits and carpet sales. d. Determination coefficient is therefore, r2 = (0.93)2 r2 = 0.86 86% of changes in carpet sales from year to year can be attributed to a change in the number of housing permits issued. Only 14 % of the changes in the carpet sales depend on other factors. e. Testing the hypothesis r = 0 at 5% level is significance is done as follows; Level of significance = 5% Degree of freedom = n 2 = 9 2 = 7 tc = | r | [(n- 2)/(1 r2)] tc = | 0.93 | [(9-2)/(1- 0.932)] tc = 7.103 From student-t table tk = 2.365 tc (7.103) > tk ( 2.365) Hypothesis r =0 is rejected. The computed r is meaningful. f. By using correlation coefficient formula, we can find b = 2004/5174 = 0.387 a = y b.x mean value of x = 20.89 a = 13.67 0.387(20.89) = 5.89 Y = 5.89 + 0.387 X

mean value of y = 13.67

g. Forecast 2008 sales based on forecasted permits for that year. First we have to forecast permits of 2008 by using trend analysis.

INVENTORY CONTROL
6. Selling price = 15 MU/unit Cost = 5 MU/unit Salvage Value = 1 MU/unit If the store overstocks, the loss per case for every excess case at the end of the day will be; K0 = Cost/case Salvage Value/case Ko = 5 MU/case 1 MU/case = 4 MU/case If the store/stand understocks, the opportunity cost for every case the stand could sell but did not stock will be; Ku = Price/case - Cost/case Ku = 15 MU/case 5 MU/case = 10 MU/case Therefore the critical ratio will be; P(C)* = Ko / (Ku + Ko) P(C)* = 4/(4+10) = 0.29 Daily Prob. at Cumulative Sales this level Probababity 5 0.10 1.00 6 0.10 0.90 7 0.20 0.80 8 0.30 0.60 9 0.20 0.30 P(C)* = 0.29 10 0.10 0.10 The stand should order and sell 9 cases/day, i.e. 63 cases/week, because it has cumulative probability (0.30) > critical probability (0.29). 7. If the store overstocks, the loss per unit for every excess sweater at the end of the season will be; K0 = Cost/sweater Salvage Value/sweater K0 = 18.25 MU/sweater 14.95 MU/sweater = 3.3 MU/sweater If the store understocks, the opportunity cost for every sweater the store could sell but did not stock will be; Ku = Price/sweater Cost/sweater Ku = 34.95 MU/sweater 18.25 MU/sweater = 16.7 MU/sweater Thus the Service Level is; S.L. = Ku/(K0 + Ku) S.L. = 16.7/(3.3 + 16.7) = 0.835 From normal distribution table Z = 0.97 Iopt = + Z. Iopt = 80 + 0.97(22) =101.34 = 101 Sweaters The store should order and stock 101 sweaters. 8. I = 2400 1000 = 1400 copies Selling price/copy = 4.50 MU/copy Cost/copy = 2.50 MU/copy Salvage Value/copy = 0 MU/copy Ko = 2.50 MU/copy Ku = Price/unit Cost/unit Ku = 4.5 2.5 = 2 MU/copy P(C)* = Ko / (Ku + Ko) P(C)* =2.5/(2.5 + 2) = 0.56 Thus the service level is; S.L. = 1.00 0.56 = 0.44 Iopt = Cmin + I (S.L.) Iopt = 1000 1400(0.44) = 1616 copies The magazine shop should order 1600 copies.

Introduction to Production / Operations Management


Ko = Cost/kg Salvage Value/kg = 1.40 MU/kg 0.80 MU/kg = 0.60 MU/kg If the Fish Market understocks, the opportuniy cost for every kg of blue fish the Market could sell but did not stock will be; Ku = Price/kg Cost/kg = 1.90 MU/kg 1.40 MU/kg = 0.50 MU/kg Thus the Service Level is; S.L. = Ku / (Ko + Ku) S.L. = 0.50 / (060 + 0.50) = 0.45 From normal distribution table Z = 0.13 Iopt = + Z. Iopt = 80 0.13(10) = 78.7 kg The Fish Market should order and sell 79 kgs. of blue fish daily. 11.If the drugstore overstocks, the loss/unit for every excess unit at the end of the New Year will be; K0 = Cost/unit Salvage Value/unit K0 = 1.30 MU/unit 0.88 MU/unit = 0.42 MU/unit If the drugstore understocks, the opportunity cost for every excess unit the store could sell but did not stock will be; Ku = Price/unit Cost/unit Ku = 2.20 MU/unit 1.30 MU/unit = 0.90 MU/unit Thus the critical probability is: P(C)* = Ko/(K0 + Ku) P(C)* = 0.42 / (0.42 + 0.90) = 0.32 Demand 3 000 3 500 4 000 4 500 5 000 5 500 Probability 0.05 0.15 0.25 0.25 0.15 0.15 Cum.

CRITICAL PROBABILITY (0.32)

We recommend Drugstore to order 4 500 cards, because it has cumulative probability (0.55) Critical probability (0.32). 13.Using equation No = (CE/2B) or No = (Cp.Z/2B) we obtain No = (220 000)(48))/2(30) = 25.69 orders/year 14.Using equation Xo (MU) = (2CpB)/Z We obtain X0(2(28 000)(48) / 0.23 15. a. b. c. d. e.

Xo (MU) = 3 418.62 MU/order

Xo = (2CB)/E Xo = (2(4860)(4)/30 = 36 bags/order Average number of bags on hand = X/2 = 36/2 = 18 bags/order No = C/X = 4 860/36 = 135 orders/year Ke = (2CBE) = (2(4860)(4)(30) = 1 080 MU/year Ke = (2(4 860)(5)(30) = 1207.48 MU/year Increase = 1 207.48 1 080 = 127.48 MU/year It will affect the total inventory cost to increase by 127.48 MU/year.

16. a. Usage = 40 packages/day x 260 days/year = 10400 packages/year Xo = (2CB)/E Xo = (2(10 400)(6)) / 3 = 204 packages/order b. That is you have to use the formula Ke = (2CBE) Ke = (2(10 400)(6)(3) = 611.88 MU/year

94

c. Yes. Since we round the figures, the total annual ordering cost must be equal to the annual ordering cost at EOQ. Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)E= (10 400/204)6 + (204/2)3 = 305.88 + 306 = 611.88 MU/year d. Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)E = (10 400/200)6 + (200/2)3 = 312 + 300 Ke = 612 MU/year No, I wont recommend. It will only save 0.12 MU/year, which is negligible. 17. Usage = 750 pots/month = 750 x 12 = 9 000 pots/order Price = 2 MU/pot Carrying cost = 25% annually Ordering cost = 30 MU/order a. Xo = (2CB)/Zp {2(9 000)(30)/0/25(2) = ~ 1 039 pots/order Ke = (2CBE) 2 (9 000)(30)(0.25)(2) = 519.62 MU/year b. Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)E Ke = (9 000/1039)/30 + (1039/2)(2)(0.5) = 779.37 MU/year Usage = 800 crates/month Purchase cost = 10 MU/crate Carrying cost = 35% of purchase cost annually Ordering cost = 28 MU/order Ke according to EOQ: Ke = (2CBE) Ke = {2(800x12)(28)(0.35)(10)} = 1 371.71 MU/year Ke according to current policy: Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)E Ke = 12(28) + (800/2)(0/35)(10) = 1 736 MU/year Saving due to using EOQ model; - Ke (EOQ) + Ke (current) = 1 736 - 1 371.71 = 364.29 MU

18.

19. If lhans Doughnut Shoppe overstocks, the loss per dozen for every excess dozen at the end of the day will be; K0 = Cost/dozen- Salvage Value/dozen = 0.80 MU/dozen 0.60 MU/dozen K0 = 0.20 MU/dozen If lhans Shoppe understocks, the opportunity cost for every dozen the Shoppe could sell but did not stock will be; Ku = Price/dozen Cost/dozen =1.20 MU/dozen 0.80 MU/dozen Ku = 0.40 MU/dozen Thus the critical probability is: P(C)* = K0/(K0 + Ku) = 0.20 /(0.20 + 0.40) = 0.33 Cum.Prob. 1.00 0.99 0.94 0.82 0.64 0.51 0.37 CRITICAL PROBABILITY ( 0.33) 26 0.11 0.27 27 0.10 0.16 28 0.04 00.6 29 0.02 0.02 The level of stock that will maximize expected profit is the highest level of stock that has a cumulative probability greater than or equal to 0.33 that will be sold. From the table you see that 25 dozens of Doughnuts is the highest level wit a cumulative probability greater than 0.33. 21.

Annual costs of inventory management are 170.76 MU. At order cost 4 MU, EOQ falls to 146 units/order, and order frequency rises to 12. Annual inventory costs fall to 98.59 MU/year.

Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)Zp = (936/468)45 + (468/2)(0.25x60) = 3600 MU Decision Point : A lot size of 468 units, which is a half year supply would be a more expensive option than the current policy. c) EOQ = X0=[2CB/Zp] = [2(936x45)/(0.25x60)] = 74.94 = ~75 units/order d) Ke = [2CBZp] Ke = [2(936)(45)(0.25)(60) = ~1 124.10 MU/year e) Total Ordering Cost = Ke/2 =1124.10/2 = 562.05 MU/year (C/X)B = (936/75)(45) = 562 MU/year f) No = C/X = 936(75 = ~12.48 Orders/year g) to = X/C = 75/18 = 4.17 weeks/order h) Ro = c.to = 18 units/weekx1 week = 18 units 46.

The level of stock that will maximize the expected profit is the highest level of stock that has a probability greater than or equal to 0.32. From the table you can see that 4 500 cards is the highest level with a probability greater than 0.32.

A. aa. Let`s calculate the present total annual inventory cost: Ke = (C/X)B + (X/2)E Ke = (10000/400)(5/5) + (400/2)(0.4) = 217.50 MU/year ab. EOQ is calculated as follows: EOQ = Xo = (2CB/E) Xo = [2(10000)(5.5)/ 0.4] = 524.4 units/order ac. The total annual inventory cost if EOQ is employed calculated as follows: Ke = [2CBE] Ke = [2(10000)(5.5)(0.4)] = 209.76 MU/year ad. Estimated annual savings in inventort is calculated: Saving = Ke (current) Ke (EOQ) = 217.50 209.76 = 7.74 MU/year ae. The inventory analyst concludes that if the annual savings on this one material were applied to the thousand of items in inventory, the savings from EOQ would be significant. B. ba. EOQ is calculated as follows: OLS = Qo = (2Cs/E(1-c/R)) Qo = [2(10000)(5.5)/(0.4)(1- (10000/250)/120)] Qo = 642.26 units/run bb. Maximum inventory in the stocks: Imax = Q0 (1 - c/R) Imax = 624.26(1 40/120) = 428.17 units/run bc. The new total inventory cost is calculated: Ke = (2CsE(1-c/R)) Ke = [1(10000)(5.5)(0.4)(1-40/120)] = 171.26 MU/year bd. The EOQ and total annual inventory costs from A, when the units were delivered all at once, were 524.4 units/order and Ke =209.76 MU/year. be.

The level of stock that will maximize the expected profit is the highest level of stock that has a probability greater than or equal to 0.57. From the table you can see that 72 units is the highest level with a probability greater than 0.57. b. Each unsold unit increases the cost of the unit by 300 MU. Ku = 2000 MU/unit 1400 MU/unit = 600 MU/unit Ko = 1400 MU/unit + 300 MU/unit 600 MU/unit = 1100 MU/unit
P(C)* = Ko/(K0 + Ku) = 1100/(1100 + 600) = ~ 0.6471 The optimal level is again 72 units of attachment, because it`s cumulative probability (0.75) is greater than critical probability.

An optimal tableau for a maximization problem must contain all zeroes or negative values in the Cj Zj row. Therefore, the tableau is optimal. We always find zero values in the Cj Zj row beneath the coloumns associated with those variables in the product mix. In this case X1, S2 and S3 are in the product mix, and the variable coloumns X1, S2 and S3 all contain zeroes in the Cj Zj row. However, variable X2 which is not in the product mix also has a zero Cj Zj value. This means we can enter variable X2 in another iteration and still not change our optimal profit of 32 MU/day. In fact, whenever there exists another optimal solution, as in this case, there are an infinite number of optimal solutions. The most X2 we can expect is the least-positive quotient of the three: Quantity X2 Quotient (bi/aij) 4 0.75 5 1/3 Min! 4 0.05 80 0.175 8 Therefore, we can introduce any amount of X2 in the continuous range of 0 to 5 1/3 units per day giving rise to an infinite number of possible solutions.

Inspection of 4th Tableau reveals that Cj Zj 0 for all values of Cj Zj, which means the optimal solution is attained. The solution is X1 = 6 X2 = 5 S3 = 4 S4 = 1 .

In order to achieve maximum profit, it is necessary to produce 6 units of Product A, and 5 units of Product B, This combination will result in a maximum of 27 MU. The S3 value indicates that Hurit will have 4 units of unused capacity for producing Product A as given in the original formulation of the problem. The S4 value of 1 indicates that there will be 1 unit of unused capacity for producing Product B. Since S1 and S2 do not appear in the solution set, they both equal zero. Hence production an d inspection time will be totally consumed. 134

The solution set (Quantity) in the 3rd simplex tableau is optimal. We have 0 and negative values for Cj Zj row. Deep-Hole Mining should produce 50 units of X3, 100 units of X2 and no units of X1. The only unused resource is the one associated with the S2 variable. It is unused in the sense that it is not totally consumed. Since S2 = 950, this means that Deep-Hole Mining will consume all but 950 tons of B2 Grade Ore. All other grades, B1 and B3, will be totally consumed. The optimum profit for Deep-Hole Mining equals 22500 MU.

Since every entry in the Cj Zj row is less than or equal to zero, the solution set is optimal. Azim Co. should market only 800 units of ABC Models, and none of the XYZ Models. This will result in an optimal profit of 160 000 MU and the following surplus resources: S2 = 400, which means that fitting and assembly will have 400 unused hours. S3 = 400, which means that there will be 400 unused hours in testing. We know that X1 equals zero, because it is not present in the optimal solution set. 24. Objective Function: Min!

New X1 values are: 40,1, 1/6, 0, -1/6, 0, 0 Notes for the student: Note that the = constraint (Vitamin A requirements) requires one artificial variable (A1) to ensure its equality. The two constraints each require a slack variable and an artificial variable. The slack variables in constraints represent amounts that must be subtracted from the constraint values; hence they must have a negative sign. All artificial variables are assigned an extremely large cost M to ensure that they are driven out of solution by the simplex iterative procedure. The solution procedure is the same as in maximisation problems except that the variable with the most negative value in the bottom Cj-Zj row is always the one introduced. Problems such as this, or others that involve more than two or three variables or constraints, are most easily solved on a computer. 31. Data Summary: WS X1
