If only the writing process were a factory assembly process or building a house from the foundation up or following a recipe to make a tasty dish. choose a metaphor for the writing process and describe how writing is and is not like the metaphorical process . comment on other students metaphors for the writing process.
B. Fixed-position layout.
A fixed-position layout is where the product stays stationary while workers come to the product site to build it. Fixed-position layouts are ideal for products that are large, heavy, or too fragile to move.
B. Fixed-position layout
Fixed-position layout is a type of facility layout whereby products and equipment are stationed in a specific place and then the workers are transported to the site to build it.
This is often recommended for products that cannot be easily moved or products that are fragile and as such moving them will expose them to damage.
B. Fixed-position layout
Fixed-Position Layout is one of the basic types in operations management, which involves the assembling of a product that is large and heavy, on a fixed site where production takes place as workers, materials and equipment are all brought to the site of production.
Fixed-Position Layout is a production technique that is most appropriate for products such as dams, turbines, aircraft, etc, which are usually huge and bulky or cannot be effectively moved to another location for completion to take place.
Therefore,the facility layout that would be most appropriate for the given type of process stated in the question, is a Fixed-Position Layout.
fixed position layout
According to my research on different manufacturing techniques, I can say that based on the information provided within the question the best type of layout for this scenario would be a fixed position layout. This is a layout in which all the personnel, supplies, and equipment are transported to the location of where the product will be created or assembled. This is done in many situations where the product is too big and will cause more trouble by transporting it to it's destination intact, as is the case in this scenario.
I hope this answered your question. If you have any more questions feel free to ask away at
i would say it is like building a house from the foundation up. you start with an outline to get the basic ideas of what you want to say down (floor, walls, etc.) then you fill in the details whether that be with facts for non-fiction or imagination for fiction. (furniture, curtains, carpet, etc.) when you edit you are doing you're final clean up before it is ready to move in (turn in).
Refining crude oil into gasoline requires the use of chemicals, pressure, and heat to change the chemical makeup of the crude oil into a finished product of gasoline. PROCESS MANUFACTURING: deals with formulas and manufacturing recipes.
A production plant that serves as a point where workers and robotics bring together all of the components that create automobiles. ASSEMBLY PROCESS: manufactured units follow an assembly line.
Making steel is a process that cannot be easily stopped and restarted. CONTINUOUS PROCESS: the manufacturing process cannot be easily stopped.
Allen-Bradley builds motor starters. The machines that Allen-Bradley uses can make different types of starters without slowing down the process. FLEXIBLE MANUFACTURING: different models can be manufactured in the same process.
A tractor manufacturer looked at their production techniques and eliminated the activities in production that do not add value to the consumer. LEAN MANUFACTURING: very simple and lean manufacturing process.
A bicycle company makes 18 models in more than 2 million combinations. The customer chooses the model, size, color, and design. MASS CUSTOMIZATION: high degree of product customization.
The answer is: Fixed-position layout
In a fixed-position layout, all the workers, supplies and equipment are taken to the site where the product will be assembled or constructed. Fixed-position layout examples include buildings, dams, shipbuilding, home repairs, aircraft building, farming, oil drilling, etc.
The most appropiate facility layout for wind turbines will be the Fixed Position Layout.
Due to the wind turbines volume, the fixed position offers less material movement because the raw material or major components are fixed to an specific location and the tools and remaining materials are brought to the site. One of the major disadvantages of this layout is that the manpower must be highly skilled and the tools and other equipment movement can take more than than usual.
The writing process is not like a factory assembly process at all.
If the writing process were anything like a an assembly process at a factory, there would be no thinking present, just a set of actions anyone could do. Unlike this, writing involves a lot of thinking in every process. In addition, in an assembly process there is no going back. In contrast, when writing, one must sometimes "disassemble" what has already been done in order to improve the final copy.
