See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1:  Low-level code

Low-level coding helps in planning the items in the correct order. The items that have been already planned, to them the demand is not passed. While the processing of production lots of material is used in producing and it is not important that all the materials are applied in the same amount.

It is used as per the requirement of material. If there is less requirement of material, then low-level code will be given.

Step 2:  If an item is used in two places in a bill-of-materials, say level 3 and level 4, what low-level code would be assigned to the item?

Level 4 because in low-level coding the items that proceed earliest are added to it.
