Hi! Just to make sure that I at least got the example exercises right (IB): 1a) Station X is the bottleneck 1b) In the traditional method, they should produce product D first 2) $1,500 per month flow through the bank Did you get the same results? :-)
just found the answer key which gave the anwers for 1b) and 2) and my answers are correct
I have the same

Sorry only 11.1 was correct
is there anyone can give me tutoring about tutorial 7 and 8 (International business ), please?
Use net revenues as throughput measure! Then flow time 2011 = 0.217 & flow time 2012 = 0.207 -> decreases which is good
It's $34,300 and not $45,700 But apparently inventory has to be accounted for, as well
Does anyone have any idea what we need to do for Session 7 (Process Management), are the pages wrong or do I have the wrong book? For example: Application task 7.3 Prepare discussion questions 1 (only the first 4 items) and 3 on pages 52 and 53 of Anupindi et al. ... But there are no questions on page 52 or 53. Same with Application task 7.5 Prepare discussion questions 2 and 4 on page 86 of Anupindi et al. .. Page 86 has no question and is actually in the middle of Chapter 4. The whole tasks seem to be a bit off and I am not sure what questions to answer.

Alright, I will try! thanks everyone!
The course coordinator sent an email that he updated the course manual with the Studydrive pdf pages, as well!
Has anyone found the 12th edition of Operations Management: Processes and Supply Chains?
I tried to find it online but I'm pretty sure that there is no available pdf
If anyone can explain how to find the least cost plan for question 7 in chapter 9, please please help!

Always look at the critical path first and then crash an activity on this path first (usually the one with the most impact depending on how your critical path looks like e.g. longest crash, cheapest, on more than one path, etc ). After that, check whether your initial critical path is still critical - if yes, crash another activity on this path; if not, find the new critical path and crash an activity on this path. Just continue doing this until you can't crash anymore due to budget or time constraints or because crashing just wouldn't shorten anything anymore :)
But in this case, the critical path remains the same even when crashed, so why would you choose to crash 1-3, 5-7 and not 3-4 and 2-6?
How did you get the critical ratios for B? I used the critical ratio formula but get different results.
My bad! Just saw that I divided actual costs by planned costs instead of the other way round! So your numbers should be right :)
Okay thank God! I was spending so long trying to figure it out :D thanks!
I do not get to 38.65... Can someone explain please?

I got slightly different numbers when calculating it with my calculator but using Excel I got 38.65
I think it's just a rounding thing.
Does anyone know why the slack for activity A is 1 and not 0 (example test 1) ?

So are we comparing the LS from C (or D) with the EF of A to find A's slack ?
Usually you just do all ES, EF, LS and LF and then in this case you would just calculate LF-EF for A to find A's slack. But yes, an activitiy's successor's late start will be the late finish for this activity so in this example exam, C's LS is A's LF (also because D has a later LS and you'd always take the earlier LS of different successors). This all sounds kind of complicated but it's really just doing ES, EF, LS and LF for all activites like we've already done it in Supply Chain and MOPD :)

Does someone know if we will get a formula sheet? :)
I think so because there's a formula sheet uploaded under course materials
Is it just me or does the example test feel too easy for what we've discussed in class?

yes! It's just gonna be like always - the "example" test is in no way a representation of the real exam :)
@BramSmulders - I mean, there were also just 5 questions in this example test. I think the real exam will include 15-20 questions right? @AnonymousPanda2799, how motivating :D
Does anyone have some nice summaries from the Project part? Would be highly appreciated :)

Thanks for your uploading. Is this book suitable for the courses? I saw that we need the 9th edition in the course material. BTW really thanks for sharing this.
For everyone in this course. Summeries are to be found in the course, Project and Production Management EBC2050.
Hi! Did anyone have exams from past years ? Thanks !
Hello, did anyone do a formula sheet for the test which he/she wants to share? #sharingiscaring
