      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

    Productivity is the ratio between output and input.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Productivity is indeed the ratio between output and input. This means that productivity measures how efficiently inputs are being used to produce outputs. By calculating the ratio, we can determine the level of efficiency and effectiveness in a process or system. Therefore, the statement "Productivity is the ratio between output and input" is true.

    The careful identification and arrangement of tasks which together build up into a portion of work is called job application.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The careful identification and arrangement of tasks which together build up into a portion of work is actually called job design, not job application. Job application refers to the process of applying for a job position by submitting a resume or completing an application form.

  • 5. 

    The classical analytical problem-solving methodology includes the following steps: (Select three)

    • A.

      Define

    • B.

      Analyse

    • C.

      Search for solutions

    • D.

      Evaluate

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Define
    B. Analyse
    D. Evaluate
    Explanation
    The classical analytical problem-solving methodology involves defining the problem, analyzing the problem to understand its root causes and potential solutions, and evaluating the different options to determine the most effective solution. These three steps are essential in systematically approaching and solving complex problems, as they help to clarify the problem, gather relevant information, and assess the feasibility and effectiveness of potential solutions. By following these steps, individuals or teams can methodically work through problems and make informed decisions based on thorough analysis and evaluation.

  • 6. 

    ______ to improve methods of production.

    • A.

      Method study

    • B.

      Work measurement

    Correct Answer
    A. Method study
    Explanation
    Method study is the correct answer because it is a systematic approach used to improve methods of production. It involves analyzing and evaluating existing methods, identifying areas for improvement, and implementing changes to increase efficiency and productivity. By studying and optimizing methods, organizations can eliminate waste, reduce costs, and enhance overall performance. Work measurement, on the other hand, is a related but distinct concept that focuses on measuring and establishing time standards for tasks.

  • 7. 

    The flow process chart enables systematic analysis to be made of all the events in a process, with the consequent elimination, reduction or combination of operations, inspections, transports, delays and storages.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The flow process chart is a tool that allows for a systematic analysis of all the events in a process. By using this chart, it becomes possible to identify areas where operations, inspections, transports, delays, and storages can be eliminated, reduced, or combined. This helps in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the process. Therefore, the given statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The purpose of critical examination is to determine the true reason underlying each event and to draw up systematically a list of all the possible improvements.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The purpose of critical examination is to analyze events and identify the actual cause behind them. It also involves creating a comprehensive list of all potential improvements that can be made. This process helps in understanding the root causes of problems and finding effective solutions.

    The heuristic calculation of an answer to a problem follows this pattern: (Select four)

    • A.

      Decide the solution required

    • B.

      Calculate a result from the unknown data

    • C.

      Is the result anything like the requirement?

    • D.

      Recalculate to bring the result nearer to requirement

    • E.

      Continue recalculating until the solution is reached.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Decide the solution required
    C. Is the result anything like the requirement?
    D. Recalculate to bring the result nearer to requirement
    E. Continue recalculating until the solution is reached.
    Explanation
    The heuristic calculation of an answer to a problem follows a specific pattern. First, you need to decide the solution required. Then, you calculate a result from the unknown data. After that, you check if the result is anything like the requirement. If it is not, you need to recalculate to bring the result nearer to the requirement. Finally, you continue recalculating until the solution is reached.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the effect of the review will make management "method unconscious." This phrase is unclear and does not make logical sense. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Work measurement techniques in use are: (Select three)

    • A.

      Time study

    • B.

      Activity sampling and rated deactivity sampling

    • C.

      Predetermined motion time standards

    • D.

      Analytical and comparative estimating.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Time study
    C. Predetermined motion time standards
    D. Analytical and comparative estimating.
    Explanation
    The three work measurement techniques in use are time study, predetermined motion time standards, and analytical and comparative estimating. Time study involves observing and timing a worker's tasks to determine the standard time required to complete them. Predetermined motion time standards use predetermined times for basic motions to estimate the time required for a task. Analytical and comparative estimating involve breaking down a task into its components and estimating the time required based on past experience or comparison to similar tasks. These techniques help organizations accurately measure and estimate the time required for work tasks.
