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. Determine the best alternative (course of action) for the EKA manufacturing company using the maximax criterion. strategy 2 (Max. payoff for alternative 2 = 120) &gt; (Max. payoff for alternative 1 = 110), thus choose strategy 2. AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1935 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 66. 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. Determine the best alternative (course of action) for the EKA manufacturing company using the maximin criterion. strategy 1 (Min. payoff for alternative 1 = 70) &gt; (Min. payoff for alternative 1 = 50), thus choose strategy 1. AACSB: Reflective Thinking Bloom's: Knowledge Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1936 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 67. 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. 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. strategy 2 (EMV)1 = (.3)(110) + (.6)(80) + (.1)(70) = 88 (EMV)2 = (.3)(60) + (.6)(120) + (.1)(50) = 95 95 &gt; 88, therefore choose strategy 2. AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1937 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 68. 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. What is the maximum amount that the company would be willing to pay for perfect information? EVPI = 6 (EMV)1 = (.3)(110) + (.6)(80) + (.1)(70) = 88 (EMV)2 = (.3)(60) + (.6)(120) + (.1)(50) = 95 Max EMV = 95 Expected payoff under certainty = (.3)(110) + (.6)(120) + (.1)(70) = 112 EVPI = 112 - 95 = 17 AACSB: Analytic Skills Bloom's: Application Difficulty: Medium Learning Objective: 1 Topic: Decision Theory 1-1938 Chapter 01 - An Introduction to Business Statistics 69. The alternatives 1 and 2 in the following payoff table represent the two possible manufacturing strategies that the EKA manufacturing company can adopt.
