INTRODUCTION TO FACILITIES PLANNING For this exercises, work in teams of at most four students. Submit your responses at the end of the class in a different piece of paper and please write the name of all the teammates. Answer only the QUESTIONS FOR TODAY. EXERCISE 1 You have just been hired by Furniture Masters Inc. (FMI), a company that manufactures primarily tables and chairs. FMI is going to serve a new area of the country, and it has been estimated that the main markets will have the following monthly demand: Chicago: 4,000 units. Memphis: 2,000 units. Atlanta: 6,000 units. Miami: 2,500 units. New York: 8,200 units. Boston: 4,500 units. FMI will deliver the product to its customers at its cost. Figure 1: Location of customers to be served. FMI also requires hiring a fair amount of qualified machinists and expert operators of electro-deposition processes, welders and painters, among other specialties. The governments of Tennessee and Mississippi have offered interesting tax incentives if FMI locates its factory in their states.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
