Question;MGT 3410 Final Examination Spring 2014;Answer;all questions (take-home examination) Academic;Honesty Policy:I understand that this is an open books/notes exam and I;may use a computer to perform computations as necessary. I have neither given;nor received help on this exam.;Due;Date: May 8 by 11:59pm;Submit;your solution electronically in a folder called ?Final Examination? under Dropbox on D2L.;1. Thomas Industries and Washburn;Corporation supply three firms (Zrox, Hewes, Rockwright) with customized;shelving for its offices. They both order shelving from the same two;manufacturers, Arnold Manufacturers and Supershelf, Inc.;Because of long standing contracts;based on past orders, unit costs from the manufacturers to the suppliers are;given below: Thomas;Washburn;Arnold;5;8;Supershelf;7;4;The chart below gives the cost to;install the shelving at the various locations: Zrox;Hewes;Rockwright;Thomas;1;5;8;Washburn;3;4;4;Currently weekly demand by the user;are 50 for Zorx, 60 for Hewes, and 40 for Rockwright.

Currently BBB is trying to;decide on an inventory and reorder policy for home barometers. These cost BBB;$50 each and demand is about 500 per year distributed fairly evenly throughout;the year. Reordering costs are $80 per order and holding costs are figured at;20% of the cost of the item.;BBB is open 300 days a year (6 days a;week and closed two weeks in August).;Lead time is 60 working days.;a. Develop a total cost model for;this system. (7 points) b. What is the optimal reorder quantity? (7 points) c.;What is the cycle time? (7 points);d. What is the reorder policy for;BBB? (7 points) e. What total annual cost does the model give? (6 points) 3.;Given the following network with activities and times estimated in days, D;A;E;Start;B;F;I;K;Finish;C;G;H;J;2.

Suzie?s Sweatshirts is a;home-based company that makes upscale, hand-painted sweatshirts for children.;Forecasts of sales for the next year are Autumn: 125;Winter: 350;Spring: 75;Each Shirt is sold for $15. The holding;cost per shirt is 6% of the selling price per quarter. The shirts are painted;by part-time workers who earn $4.50 per hour during the autumn. Because of the;high demand for part-time help during the winter holiday season, labor rates;are higher in the winter, and Suzie must pay the workers $6.00 per hour. In the;spring, labor is more difficult to keep, and Suzie finds that she must pay;$5.50 per hour to get qualified help. Each shirt takes 1.5;hours to complete. Formulate the;problem to a LP model to help Suzie plan production over the three quarters to;minimize the combined production and inventory holding cost.
