Week 1 DQ 1  (How Other Levels of OPC Affect PAC (Graded)

Select one of the five areas of OPC noted in this week's lecture, and discuss how activities in this area will or could affect PAC. Why do you feel this way? Does any one area of OPC affect PAC more than another? which specific area of PAC is impacted the most by the areas you selected? How does the textbook describe PAC?  What are the sections of PAC?  And based on the description of PAC from the lecture and textbook, which specific area of PAC is impacted the most by the master production schedule? which specific area of PAC is impacted the most by the master production schedule? are there any other areas of OPC that have a similar impact on OPC?

 

Week 1 DQ 2 (Compare and Contrast JIT and MRP )
