Lean Manufacturing MCQs

Lean production is a philosophy that aims to systematically eliminate waste. It focuses on reducing system response time so that the production system is capable of rapid change to meet market demands. Here on MCQs.club we have designed easy Multiple-Choice Questions (MCQs) on lean manufacturing that fully covers its principle, tools list, system, process and method along with its benefits and examples. These MCQs on lean mfg also covers the TPM lean six sigma, Just-in-time lean management. Our MCQs are useful for Professional accountancy exams, Competitive exams and Business management exams.

  1. Which of the following is correct regarding ‘Lean Production’?
    1. Lean production is a philosophy that aims to systematically eliminate waste.
    2. Lean production focuses on reducing system response time so that the production system is capable of rapid change to meet market demands
    3. Both A&B are correct
    4. None
  1. Lean production aims to eliminates wastes such as:
    1. Inventory – holding or purchasing unnecessary raw materials, work in progress and finished goods.
    2. Waiting – time delays/idle time when value is not added to the product.
    3. Defective units – production of a part that is scrapped or required rework.
    4. Effort – actions of people/equipment that do not add value
    5. Transportation – delays in transportation or unnecessary handling.
    6. Over processing – unnecessary steps that do not add value.
      1. All of the above
      2. (I) (III) and (V) only
      3. (I) and (V) only
      4. None
  1. Characteristic of lean production include:
    1. Improved production scheduling – production is initiated by customer demand rather than ability and capacity to product, i.e. production is demand-pull, not supply-push.
    2. Small batch production or continuous production – production is based on customer demand resulting in highly flexible and responsive processes.
    3. Continuous improvement, Zero inventory (JIT), Zero waiting time.
    4. All of the above
  1. Identify the core methods of lean manufacturing:
    1. Just in time (JIT), Kaizen, 5S practice
    2. Total productive maintenance (TPM), Cellular manufacturing, six-sigma
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Benefits of lean production may include:
    1. It enables a company to deliver on demand,
    2. Minimize inventory, maximize the use of multi-skilled employees,
    3. Flatten the management structure and focus resources where they are most effective.
    4. All of the above
  1. Lean production is also known as:
    1. lean manufacturing
    2. lean process improvement
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Which of the following is correct with regard to Main ISO standards?
    1. ISO 9001: contains the quality management standards. Organizations should follow these standards if they want to become registered.
    2. ISO 9000 and 9004: contains guidelines which help organization to implement quality standards.
    3. ISO 14001: is of growing importance to companies. It specifies the process for controlling and improving and organization’s environmental performance.
    4. All of the above are correct

  1. Which of the following is correct regarding ISO 9000 standards?
    1. The ISO 9000 standards are process standards, not product standards.
    2. Organizations are granted certified or compliant status on the basis that their processes rather than their products and services meet ISO 9000 requirements.
    3. Both A&B
    4. None
  1. Total productive maintenance (TPM) engages all levels and functions of the organization in maintenance. Workers are trained to take care of the equipment.
    1. True
    2. False
  1. The major factors that need to be considered in order to implement TPM are:
    1. Training, Planning
    2. Equipment maintenance
    3. Having an adequate budget in place
    4. All of the above
  1. Benefits of TPM include:
    1. Reduced instances of breakdowns
    2. Production consistency and uniform output
    3. Reduction in waste and cost of quality
    4. Improved accuracy of production schedules and facilitation of an on-time delivery
    5. All of the above
  1. Cellular manufacturing – work units are arranged in a sequence that supports a smooth flow of materials and components through the production processes with minimal transport or delay
    1. False
    2. True
  1. World class manufacturing – a commitment to quality (and to the customer) is referred to as ‘world class manufacturing’. This approach involves a focus on customer requirements and then ensuring products meet these requirements.
    1. The above statement is incorrect
    2. The above statement is correct
  1. Identify the factors which focuses to contribute to world class manufacturing.
    1. Integrated operations processes enabling smooth production flow
    2. Team leaders that involved employees’ (team members) in quality issues and developed both their own and employees problem-solving skills
    3. Tightly integrated value chains with close, productive relationships between supply chain partners
    4. All of the above

  1. Business continuity is a term used to describe measures to help an operation to prevent or recover from failures, and to continue operating in the event of a disaster.
    1. True
    2. False
  1. Business continuity planning is to:
    1. Identify and assess the risks of various disasters happening.
    2. Identify core business processes, and rank them in order of priority. Make sure that employees understand these priorities.
