Solution:
QUESTION: 25

Assertion (A): A product layout is preferred when the flexibility in sequence of operations is required.

Reason (R): Product layout reduces inventories as well as labour cost.  

Solution:

A is false. Product layout has lowest flexibility. For flexibility in sequence of operation use process layout. 

QUESTION: 26

Consider the following limitations:

1. Movement of machines and equipments for production centre is costly.
2. Long flow lines lead to expensive handling.
3. Breakdown in one machine leads to stoppage of production.
4. Large work-in-process during production.
