What are the required capacities? What capacity decision is suggested? 2 Solution Solution Bronze Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Demand for bronze sprinklers 21 24 29 34 Available capacity 3*12 = 36 36 36 36 Percentage of capacity used Machine requirements Labor requirements 3 Solution Solution Bronze Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Demand for bronze sprinklers 21 24 29 34 Available capacity 36 36 36 36 Percentage of capacity used 58.3% 66.7% 80.6% 94.4% Machine requirements 1.75 2.00 2.42 2.83 Labor requirements 3.50 4.00 4.84 5.66 What capacity decision is suggested? (having currently 3 machines and 6 operators) in case of low direct cost of capacity changes? in case of high direct cost of capacity changes? 4 Identify possible future conditions called states of nature Develop a list of possible alternatives , one of which may be to do nothing Determine the payoff associated with each alternative for every future condition 2.
