Basics of Manufacturing
Show Answers:

  1. Production Plan?
    Sets the overall of manufacturing output by year needed to meet the planned levels of sales....typically by product family.
  2. Master Production Schedule (MPS)?
    Shows when shipments are expected to occur & the capacity that will be required by people & machines.(Derived from the Master Schedule)
  3. Master Resource Plan?
    The process of determining the amount of resources (capacity) available.
  4. Master Schedule?
    Uses customer orders, forcasts, & inventory levels to meet desired customer-service objectives. It is a commitment to ship on a specifed date.
  5. Material Requirement Plan (MRP)?
    Covers the scheduling of manufacturing the parts required to build the products for customers who are included in the master schedule. IT schedules the right part, at the right time, in the right place. It also makes suggestions for the cycle counts.
  6. Bill of Capacity?
    It shows how much labor and machine time are required to produce the typical unit of a product.
  7. Bill of Material (BOM)?
    Contains a list of parts and quantities required to build an end item.
  8. BOM Structuring?
    The process that organizes BOMs and results in the subassemblies that go into assemblies and then become part of the end product.
  9. Independent Demand?
    Demand for an end item or service part that is unrelated to the demand for other items. The MPS contains only independent demand.
  10. Allocations?
    An allocation reserves the part. It creates a pick ticket to goes to the warehouse. An allocation ensures that the part will not be used to fill another order.
  11. Lead Time?
    The amount of time it takes to receive the order from the supplier (or manuf floor).
  12. Non-nettable Location?
    Inventory not to be shipped to customers or used in the manufacturing process. e.g.,Product that needs to be scrapped, components reserved for direct sale as spare parts. Or, possibly for quality control non-nettable warehouse: the goods arrive from the vendor and you want to inspect them first before they can be available for shipping out.
  13. Nettable Warehouse?
    Locations where stock can be netted against the product's gross requirements to determine its net requirements.
  14. Dependent Demand?
    Calculated demands that are directly related to or derived from the BOM structure for other components or end products.
  15. Router?
    A document that describes wher eon the shop floor the material needs to be sent. Instructions include operations to be performed, their sequence, etc.
