    A production environment where a good or service can be assembled after receipt of a customers order
  2. Final Assemble schedule
    A schedule of end items to finish the product for specific customers orders in a MTO or ATO environment
  3. Finite loading
    Assigning no more work to a work center than the work center can be expected to execute in a given time period
  4. Infinite loading
    Calculation of the capacity required at work centers in the time periods required regardless of the capacity available to perform this work
  5. Multilevel bill of material
    A display of all the components directly or indirectly used in a parent, together with the quantity required of each component
  6. modular bill of material
    A type of planning bill that is arranged in product modules or options
  7. overload
    A condition when the total hours of work outstanding at a work center exceed that work center's capacity
  8. overstated master production schedule
    A schedule that includes either past due quantities or quantities that are greater than the ability to produce, given current capacity and material availability.
  9. planning bill of material
    An artificial grouping of items or events in BOM format used to facilitate master scheduling and material planning
  10. rough cut capacity planning
    The process of converting the MPS into requirements for key resources, often including labor, machinery, warehouse space, suppliers capabilities, and in some cases money
  11. single level bill of material
    A display of components that are directly used in a parent item; it shows only the relationships one level down
  12. two level master schedule
    A master scheduling approach in which a planning BOM is used to master schedule an end product or family, along with selected key features such as options and accessories
  13. A time fence policy does which of the following?

    A) I and II only
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  17. In master scheduling, hedging refers to a practice which

    A) provides safety inventory in case option mixes are different from forecast
    B) provides a safety lead time
    C) A, B, and provides safety ivnetnory in case volume is greater than forecast
    D) gives safety capacity to protect against workcenter overload
    C) A, B, and provides safety ivnetnory in case volume is greater than forecast
    (this multiple choice question has been scrambled)
  18. The production forecast

    A) represents the product family forecast in two level master scheduling
    B) is based on production lead times
    C) is primarily used with master production scheduled items
    D) forecasts the family ATP multiplied by option percentages
    D) forecasts the family ATP multiplied by option percentages

  19. What is the difference between a FAS and a MPS?

    A) The FAS addresses a shorter term planning period than the MPS and looks at customer orders rather than forecasted demand
