Supplement to Chapter 05 - Decision Theory Problem 4 a. 1) Draw a tree diagram 2) Analyze decisions from right to left (i.e., work backwards from the end of the tree towards the root). For instance, begin with decision 2 and choose expansion because it has a higher present value (\$450,000 vs. \$50,000). 3) Compute the expected value of the ends of the remaining branches (numbered 1 to 5 in the diagram), and then determine the expected value for the two initial alternatives. (1).4 x \$400,000 = \$160,000 (2)(eliminated) \$430,000 (expected value if build small is chosen) (3).6 x \$450,000 = \$270,000 (4).4 x –\$10,000 = \$–4,000 (5).6 x \$800,000 = \$480,000 \$476,000 (expected value if build large is chosen) 4) Since the expected value of building a large plant has the higher expected value, select the large plant alternative.
