1.A product is currently made in a process-focused shop, where fixed costs are $8,000 per year and variable cost is $40 per unit. The firm currently sells 200 units of the product at $200 per unit. A manager is considering a repetitive focus to lower costs (and lower prices, thus raising demand). The costs of this proposed shop are fixed costs = $24,000 per year and variable costs = $10 per unit. If a price of $80 will allow 400 units to be sold, what profit (or loss) can this proposed new process expect? Do you anticipate that the manager will want to change the process? Explain.
Question 2
The efficiency of a factory is 75% and its utilization 50%. If effective capacity is 1000 find design capacity
Question 3
A plant manager wants to know how much he should be willing to pay for perfect market research. Currently there are two states of nature facing his decision to expand or do nothing. Under favorable market conditions the manager would make $100,000 for the large plant and $5,000 for the small plant. Under unfavorable market conditions the large plant would lose $50,000 and the small plant would make $0. If the two states of nature are equally likely, how much should he pay for perfect information?
Question 4
XYZ company has designed a new lottery scratch-off game. The player is instructed to scratch off one spot: A, B, or C. A can reveal "loser," "win $1," or "win $50." B can reveal "loser" or "take a second chance." C can reveal "loser," or "win $500." On the second chance, the player is instructed to scratch off D or E. D can reveal "loser" or "win $1." E can reveal "loser" or "win $10." The probabilities at A are 0.9, 0.09, and 0.01 respectively. The probabilities at B are 0.8 and 0.2. The probabilities at C are 0.999 and 0.001. The probabilities at D are 0.5 and 0.5. The probabilities at E are 0.95 and 0.05. Calculate the expected value of the game
1. For current process
Fixed cost = $8000 per year
Variable cost = $40 per unit
Selling price = $200 per unit
Quantity sold = 200
Profit = Revenue – total cost
Profit = selling price * quantity sold – (annual fixed cost + variable cost * quantity sold)
Profit = 200 * 200 – (8000 + 400 *200)
Profit = 24000
Profit for current process is = $24,000
New process
Annual fixed costs = $24000 per year
Variable cost = $10 per unit
Quantity sold = 400
Selling Price = $80
Profit = Revenue –total cost
Profit = selling price per unit * quantity sold – (annual fixed costs + variable cost * quantity sold)
Profit = 80 * 400 – (24000 +10 *400)
Profit = $4000
Expected profit with new process = $4000
Profit with the current process is $24000 is more than the new process that is $4000 so manager will not change the process.
2. Solution efficiency = output/ effective capacity
0.75 = output/1000
Output =750
Utilization= Output/design capacity
0.50 = 750/design capacity
Design capacity =750/0.5
Design capacity = 1500
3. Expected value of perfect information for smith =
= 100,000*0.5 + 0*0.5 = 50,000
= 25,000
EVPI = 25,000
. 4.
Alt 1: Spot A
Expected Value, EV_{A} = (0.9 x 0) + (0.09 x 1) + (0.01 x 50) = $0.59
Alt 2: Spot B
Expected Value, EV_{B} = (0.8 x 0) + [0.2 x (0.5 x 0) + (0.5 x 1) + (0.95 x 0) + (0.05 x 10)] = $0.2
Alt 3: Spot C
Expected Value, EV_{C} = (0.999 x 0) + (0.001 x 500) = $ 0.5
The Expected Value is highest for Alt 1 when Spot A is revealed.
The Expected Value of game is EV_{A} = $0.59

The Advanced Engineering Economic Company ('AEE') is currently making its product (MEM502) in a process-focused shop, where rental payments are $8000 per year and material costs are $40 per unit. Records show that AEE currently sells 200 units of the product MEM502 for $200 each. As the manager of AEE, you are considering a proposed repetitive focus in order to lowest costs, and hence, lower prices; thereby raising the demand. the proposed shop however, has rental payments of $24,000 per...
A product is currently made in a job shop, where fixed costs are $20,000 per year and variable cost is $150 per unit. The firm sells the product for $175 per unit. What is the break-even point for this operation? What is the profit (or loss) on a demand of 150 units per year?
Elmwood, Inc. currently sells 13,100 units of its product per year for $111 each. Variable costs total $86 per unit. Elmwood’s manager believes that if a new machine is leased for $232,525 per year, modifications can be made to the product that will increase its retail value. These modifications will increase variable costs by $14.50 per unit, but Elmwood is hoping to sell the modified units for $141 each. a-1. Should Elmwood modify the units or sell them as is?...
