Staging in a manual system corresponds to which of the following functions in a computer system?
Staging in a manual system corresponds to dispatching in a computer system. Staging is the process of preparing and moving materials or components to the point of use or consumption in a production system1. Staging can be done manually by workers who physically move the items from storage areas to workstations, or automatically by conveyors, robots, or other devices2. Dispatching is the process of authorizing and releasing work orders or tasks to the production system3. Dispatching can be done manually by supervisors who assign work to workers, or automatically by computer systems that use algorithms or rules to prioritize and schedule work4. Both staging and dispatching are functions that facilitate the flow of materials and information in a production system and ensure that the right items are available at the right time and place.

Which of the following approaches is most effective in communicating operational performance?
Visual control boards are tools that display the key performance indicators (KPIs) and metrics of a production system in a graphical and easy-to-understand format. Visual control boards are usually located at several locations within the production facility, such as the work centers, the shop floor, or the management office. Visual control boards help to communicate operational performance by providing real-time and relevant information, enabling quick feedback and corrective actions, and promoting transparency and accountability.
The other options are not the most effective approaches in communicating operational performance. Quality performance measures are indicators that evaluate the degree to which the products or services meet or exceed the specifications and standards. Quality performance measures are important for communicating operational performance, but they are not sufficient, as they do not cover other aspects of performance, such as cost, time, or customer satisfaction. Reviewing conformance to schedule is a method of comparing the actual production output with the planned production output, based on the master production schedule or the material requirements plan. Reviewing conformance to schedule is useful for communicating operational performance, but it is not timely, as it is usually done after the production is completed, and it does not provide enough details or explanations for the deviations or variances. Monthly meetings with employees are events that involve discussing and reviewing the operational performance with the staff members who are involved in the production process. Monthly meetings with employees are beneficial for communicating operational performance, but they are not frequent, as they are only held once a month, and they may not be effective, as they may lack participation or engagement from the employees.
Increased use of third-party logistics (3PL) services is likely to have which of the following effects on a firm's balance sheet?
Third-party logistics (3PL) services are services that involve outsourcing some or all of the logistics functions of a firm, such as transportation, warehousing, distribution, or order fulfillment, to an external provider1. By using 3PL services, a firm can reduce its need to own and operate its own logistics assets, such as trucks, trailers, warehouses, or inventory management systems. These assets are classified as fixed assets on the balance sheet, because they are long-term and tangible assets that are used in the normal course of business2. Therefore, increased use of 3PL services is likely to have the effect of decreasing the fixed assets on a firm’s balance sheet.
The other options are not likely effects of increased use of 3PL services on a firm’s balance sheet. Retained earnings are the accumulated net income of a firm that is not distributed to shareholders as dividends3. Retained earnings are not directly affected by the use of 3PL services, unless the firm’s net income changes as a result of cost savings or revenue growth from outsourcing logistics functions. Accounts receivable are the amounts owed to a firm by its customers for goods or services delivered on credit4. Accounts receivable are not directly affected by the use of 3PL services, unless the firm’s sales volume or credit terms change as a result of improved customer service or delivery performance from outsourcing logistics functions. Intangible assets are non-physical assets that have value based on their intellectual or legal rights, such as patents, trademarks, goodwill, or brand names5. Intangible assets are not directly affected by the use of 3PL services, unless the firm’s reputation or market position changes as a result of enhanced quality or innovation from outsourcing logistics functions.
