JokersRWild makes playing cards in several different styles, but a "standard" deck of cards is used for planning purposes. The average worker at JokersRWild can make 10,000 sets of decks of cards per month at a cost of \$1.50 per deck during regular production and \$1.80 during overtime. The company currently employs 18 workers. Experience shows that it costs \$750 to hire a worker and \$750 to fire a worker. Inventory carrying cost is \$.30 per deck per month. The beginning inventory is 38,000, and at least that amount is desired each month. Assume hiring and layoff/firing, if necessary, occur at the beginning of the month. February 160,000 March 160,000 Month January 130,000 April 340,000 May 350.000 June Demand 300000 a. Given the above demand estimate, develop a six-month production plan based on level production.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
