OPS 571 Week 6 Quiz

1.) Which of the following are examples of
Goldratt’s Rules of Production Scheduling?
An hour saved at a bottleneck is a mirage
Nonbottlenecks govern throughput
Utilization and activation are the same
Balance flow, not capacity

2.) According to the theory of constraints
which of the following can be a CCR?
Product design
An employee
Factory layout
A customer

3.) The Shingo approach to quality control
depends on which of the following?

Use of statistically based approaches to
quality control
Use of source inspection on 100% of the
items produced
Extensive use of control charts
Use of a sophisticated method of
acceptance sampling

4.) Statistical Process Control (SPC) and
data from the actual process to
statistically monitor the process over time

DMAIC cycle?

5.) According to the theory of constraints,
which of the following is an OPERATIONAL
measurement that can be used to measure
the firm's ability to make money?
Operating revenue
Unit cost
Net Profit

6.) The DMAIC cycle of Six Sigma is similar
to which of the following quality
management topics?
External benchmarking
ISO 9000

relies heavily on fail-safe procedures or
devices called what?

8.) Identifying critical-to-quality

which of the following is a FINANCIAL

measurement that can be used to measure
the firm's ability to make money?
Cash flow
Operating expenses

could be restated using which of the
A system with constraints will not be able
to achieve its goals
Any system is limited in achieving more of
its goals by a very small number of
A system constraint cannot be identified
and thus cannot be improved

Continuous adjustments after a constraint
problem is solved will cause more

11.) The idea that statistical methods of
quality control, including six-sigma, does
not prevent defects, is central to what
alternative quality system?
SQC methods
Deming PDCA cycle
DMAIC cycle
Shingo System
