# Sequential processing is characterized by a. a pattern where partially completed units are worked on simultaneously. b. a pattern where partially completed units must pass through one process before they can be worked on in later processes. c. a pattern where different partially completed units must pass through parallel processes before being brought together in a final process. d. a pattern where partially completed units must be purchased from outside suppliers and delivered to the final process in a sequential time mode. e. None of these.

Expert Solution
To determine

Identify the suitable characteristic of sequential processing.

### Explanation of Solution

Sequential Processing:

A processing in which goods passes through various processes in a sequence is called sequential processing. Sequential processing is economical but takes too much time in processing.

b.

In sequential processing each process perform its work after the previous process ends. The work in sequential processing is done by different processes in sequence. Therefore, option b. is correct.

a.

In sequential processing, partially completed units pass through various processes in a sequence. The pattern in which partially completed goods are manufactured simultaneously is called parallel processing...
