59. A manager has prepared a forecast of expected aggregate demand for the next six months. Develop an aggregate plan to meet this demand given this additional information: A level production rate of 100 units per month will be used. Backorders are allowed, and they are charged at the rate of $8 per unit per month. Inventory holding costs are $1 per unit per month in ending inventory. Determine the cost of this plan if regular time cost is $20 per unit and beginning inventory is zero. 60. Given the projected demands for the next six months, prepare an aggregate plan that uses inventory, regular time and overtime, and backorders. The plan must wind up with no units in ending inventory in Period 6. Regular time capacity is 150 units per month. Overtime capacity is 20 units per month. Overtime cost is $30 per unit, backorder cost is $20 per unit, inventory holding cost is $5 per unit, regular time cost of $20 per unit, and beginning inventory is zero. 61. Use either the transportation method or linear programming to develop an optimum aggregate plan, given the following data: 62.

When the opportunity cost of lost revenue is relatively high, _________ become(s) relatively more attractive. A. Layoffs B. Backorders C. Excess capacity D. Disaggregation E. Both B and C 77. The more __________ demand is, the more the aggregate plan will tend to reflect the ____________ strategy. A. Stable; Level B. Aggregated; Outsourcing C. Variable; Chase D. Complex; Uncommitted E. Both A and C 78. In a service setting, the aggregate plan results in a time-phased projection of __________ requirements. A. customer B. staff C. inventory D. subcontracting E. outsourcing 79. Which of the following differs between aggregate planning in services and aggregate planning in manufacturing?

Suppose that over the coming year forecasted total demand (in planning units) is for 10,400 units. Once the production plan is disaggregated, what will the weekly forecast for version A be (assume 52 weeks per year)? A. 1000 B. 200 C. 400 D. 100 E. 50 81. A master production schedule quantity of 300 units will arrive in week 6. Weekly demand over weeks 3 through 10 is forecasted at 50 units. At present, orders have been booked in various quantities in weeks 1, 2, 3 and 4. What is the available to promise for week 6? A. 50 B. 6 C. 300 D. 100 E.
