IE 341 Phase II Phase II of the project included all the same conditions in Phase I except the addition of a tariff due to the termination of the free trade market agreement between the US and China. These tariffs affected production costs, salary, and transportation costs. The LINGO code used in Phase 1 of the project needed to be modified in order to include a tariff. To do this, a new variable, T , was introduced into the LINGO code (See Appendix B1 ). The T is used to multiply all international expenses by 1.25 to represent a 25% tariff between the US and China. After the output information from the new LINGO code had been looked over and analysed (See Appendix B2 ), the following goals and constraints where developed for Phase II by each of the plant managers: Maintain domestic production levels of 1400 tons and 1300 tons for Decorah and Sheldon plants Keep carbon emissions at 1,530,000 lbs. per month Maintain a profit of at least $600,000 per month

    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.
