  2. Final Assemble schedule

  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

  14. Which of the following are the elements of demand?

    C) projected sales and orders
  15. Which of the following are data required for the development of a realistic MPS?

    D) I, II, and workforce constraints

    A) I and II only
  17. In master scheduling, hedging refers to a practice which

    B) A, B, and provides safety ivnetnory in case volume is greater than forecast
  18. The production forecast

    C) 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
  20. Which of the following is defined ad the process of converting the MPS into the load for critical resources?

    C) RCCP
  21. In which of the following zones is it most difficult to respond to changes in customer demand?

    C) frozen
