D-D'The two are options that are separate from each other.
B-DDecreasing the size of the batch on a non-bottleneck resource reduces the amount of time waiting to receive parts for assembly.That the correct parts would be available for assembly.
C-D'Doing so will increase the time required to produce each part.That the resultant increase in labor cost would be offset by more sales.
A-BIt will provide clients with delivery of parts more quickly.The resulting increase in setups inflate the cost of the parts.
A-CThe added expense of higher costs will affect my throughput.
