Significant Sentence No. 1
The sentence “Operations managers are usually concerned when effective capacity is greater than actual production" (Swink et al., 2017) is taken from the first paragraph on page 64. This sentence is basically about the concept of planning which is greater in capacity then the actual yield of product, i.e., yield rate planned is lower than practical. The inefficiency of yield rate is determined through project manager as and it is their job to keep this thing in control. This sentence means that one of the concerns of project managers is about the exceeding capacity than original yield. The actual production and the initial size should match with each other for the efficiency of production. The significance of this sentence for me is that it is not beneficial for the company as well as a person to plan on something which much efficiency and the outcome is lower than the planning energy or capacity.
Significant Sentence No. 2
This sentence “Instead of designing a new part for each product, designers reuse parts from existing products” (Swink et al., 2017) is taken from the second paragraph on page number 129. It is basically about the recycling and sustainability of the product's parts and standardization of the component. The author emphasized on the reuse of the elements from already built products. Therefore it means that instead of creating a new component or part a person or an organization should recycle the products with existing parts of the products. This sentence means to me now that reusing the already processed things will be more beneficial and time-saving than producing things from new components. The applicability of this sentence is in everyday life of a person because recycling of the products takes less effort, time and cost also the efficiency of the produced goods is incomparable from the goods which are made from the scratch.
