Exercise 3 a - Solution Base Salary: 100,000 AI: 40% x {[0.1 + (5.2 - 5.0)/(6.0 - 5.0) × (0.15 - 0.10) ] × 100,000 = .11 × 100,000} = 4,400 ROI: 30% x 10,000 = 3,000 Faulty products: 30% x {5,000 + 0.2 × 5,000} = 1,800 109,200

Exercise 3 b Before the products of Division 96 are packaged, an automated process quickly checks the quality of the products (using “goal -line technology ”). At the beginning of 2018, the manager is trying to decide whether to sell the machine at it’s current book -value of $2,000,000. If the machine is sold, it will not be replaced. As a result, the quantity of faulty products is expected to increase to 3.5%, but operating costs are not expected to change. Should the manager sell the machine?

Exercise 3 b - Solution Asset-base with the machine: ROI = AI/Asset-base Asset-base = AI/ROI = $5,200,000/0.1 = $52,000,000 Asset-base after the machine is sold = $52,000,000 - 2,000,000 = $50,000,000 New ROI = 5,200,000/50,000,000 = 10.4% New Bonus: AI: 40% x {[0.1 + (5.2 - 5.0)/(6.0 - 5.0) × (0.15 - 0.10) ] × 100,000 = .11 × 100,000} = 4,400 ROI: 30% x {10,000 + (0.104 -0.1)/(0.11-0.1) × 5,000} = 3,600 Faulty products: 30% x {2,000 + 0.5 × 3,000} = 1,050 9,050 SINCE 9,050 > 9,050 , SHOULD NOT SELL THE MACHINE

    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.
