Selecting a Forklift Truck It has been two weeks since you received this assignment from your boss, John Trevenen, who is the Production Engineer at the GWS Industries manufacturing plant that employs you. "We've been having more trouble with one of our forklift trucks," he explained. You are not surprised. Some of those forklifts have been breaking down regularly for years. "And Stricklin's finally decided to replace one of them," John continues. Stricklin is John's boss and the top executive at the plant. His title is Plant Manager. "What finally happened to make him decide that?" you ask. "I thought he was going to keep trying to repair those old things forever.'' Actually, he wants to replace one of the newer ones that we bought just two years ago," John replies. "That particular forklift was manufactured by a company that has since gone bankrupt. Stricklin is afraid we won't be able to get replacement parts. I think he's right." "Hmmmm," you comment. "Anyway," John says, "Stricklin wants to be sure he spends the company's money more wisely this time. He's done a little investigation himself and has narrowed the choice to two machines. He's asked me to figure out which one is the best choice." You can see what's coming. You've had a hundred assignments like this before from John.
