Utility analysis AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 2 Topic: Posterior Analysis 28. The expected net gain of sampling equals the expected ______________ minus the cost of sampling.

The alternatives 1 and 2 in the following payoff table represent the two possible manufacturing strategies that the EKA manufacturing company can adopt. The level of demand affects the success of both strategies. The states of nature (Si) represent the levels of demand for the company products. S1, S2 and S3 characterize high, medium, and low demand respectively. The payoff values are in thousands of dollars. The best alternative (course of action) for the EKA manufacturing company using the maximin criterion is strategy __ and the best possible payoff is _____. A. 1, $50,000 B. 2, $120,000 C. 1, $100,000 D. 2, $70,000 E. 2, $80,000 AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Analysis Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1917 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 30. The alternatives 1 and 2 in the following payoff table represent the two possible manufacturing strategies that the EKA manufacturing company can adopt. The level of demand affects the success of both strategies. The states of nature (S1) represent the levels of demand for the company products. S1, S2 and S3 characterize high, medium, and low demand with probabilities of .3, .6 and .1 respectively. The payoff values are in thousands of dollars. Find the expected monetary value for each of the alternatives and determine the best alternative (course of action) for the EKA manufacturing company using the expected monetary value criterion. A. EMV1 = $98,000, EMV2 = $95,000, choose strategy 1 B. EMV1 = $88,000, EMV2 = $95,000, choose strategy 2 C. EMV1 = $88,000, EMV2 = $85,000, choose strategy 1 D. EMV1 = $66,667, EMV2 = $76,667 choose strategy 2 E. EMV1 = $120,000, EMV2 = $110,000, choose strategy 1 AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1918 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 31.
