(a) Double exponential smoothing model
(b) Simple exponential smoothing model
(c) Brown’s quadratic smoothing model
(d) Moving average model (using 5 data points)
Q5. The value of the smoothing constant will be, when the current period forecast becomes equal to the last period forecast
Q6. A production line is said to be balanced, if at each station
(a) There is equal number of machines
(b) There is equal number of operators
(c) Waiting time for service is same
(d) Operation time is same
S1. Ans. (d)
Sol. minimum value.
S2. Ans. (c)
EOQ=√((2DC_o)/C_h )=√(((2×9000×10))/2)=300 Units
So, No. of order=D/EOQ=9000/300=30
S3. Ans. (a)
Sol. FSN analysis
It is also known as fast moving slow moving and non-moving items.
It looks at quantity consumption rate and how often the item is issued and used.
It is generally used in retail shop.
S4. Ans. (d)
Sol. Moving average model (using 5 data points)
S5. Ans. (c)
Sol. When the value of smoothing constant equal to zero then the current period forecast becomes equal to last period forecast for
When α=0, then F_(t+1)=F_t
S6. Ans. (d)
Sol. A production line is said to be balanced, if at each station operation time is the same.
