Final Exam Review Handout MGMT 306 Spring 2009 Reminders I Final Exam Wednesday May 6th from 100 PM 300 PM Sections 1 2 and 3 will have their exam in CL50 224 Sections 4 and 6 should go to WTHR 200 The seating assignment will be announced very soon You may bring 3 sheets of quotcribquot notes doublesided Stande normal distribution table will be provided if needed Bring your student ID because we will check your ID during the nal exam Topics included in the Final Exam are Conceptual Understanding of LP LP Sensitivity Analysis and Excel Solver Output Interpretation LP Formulation IP Formulation Nonlinear Programming Simulation modeling using Risk Project Management Decision Analysis including PrecisionTree Multi criteria Decision Modelling and Solution I The Graphical Solution method will not be on the exam 509 gtIQM WNH Question 1 A textile manufacturer produces two types of cotton cloth corduroy and denim Corduroy is a heavier grade of cotton cloth and as such requires 75 pounds of raw cotton to produce one yard whereas denim requires 5 pounds of raw cotton per yard A yard of corduroy requires 32 hours of processing time and a yard of denim requires 3 hours Although the demand for denim is practically unlimited the maximum demand for corduroy is 510 yards per month The textile manufacturer has a maximum of 6500 pounds of cotton available each month due to limited storage capacity and 3000 hours of processing time available each month The processing time each month is a sunk cost The cost of cotton is 10 cents per pound and it is considered a variable cost accounting for only the amount of cotton used The manufacturer sells the cloth for 385 per yard for corduroy and 275 per yard for denim The manufacturer wants to know how many yards of each type of cloth to produce each month to maximize pro t a Clearly define the decision variables you would use to solve this problem b Formulate a linear program for the above problem using only the variables defined in a c Due to a new process each type of cloth must undergo after being manufactured at most 40 of the total production can be corduroy Make the necessary changes in the original formulation to represent this restriction Define any additional variables if you need them d An agreement has been reached with the cotton supplier that enables the textile manufacturer to use more than 6500 pounds of cotton in a month According to the agreement cotton in excess of 6500 pounds can be stored in the supplier s depot during the month The supplier will charge 5 cents per pound for storage for the month and will store up to 4000 pounds each month Make the necessary changes in the original formulation to represent this situation Define any additional variables if you need them Question 2 The Tots Toys Company is trying to schedule production of two very popular toys for the next three months a rocking horse and a scooter Information about both toys is given below Beginning Required Required Production Inventory Inventory on Plastic Time Cost Cost Toy June 1st Per Toy Per Toy Per Toy Per Toy Rocking Horse 25 5 2 12 l Scooter 5 5 4 3 14 12 Plastic Time Monthly Demand Monthly Demand Summer Schedule Available Available Horse Scooter June 3500 2100 220 450 July 5000 3000 350 700 August 4800 2500 600 520 Develop a model that would tell the company how many of each toy to produce during each month You are to minimize total cost Inventory cost will be levied on any items in inventory on June 30 July 31 or August 31 after demand for the month has been satis ed The company wants to end the summer with 150 rocking horses and 60 scooters as beginning inventory for Sept 1 Don39t forget to de ne your decision variables Question 3 Noname B School is trying to decide how many of each type of computer to buy for its computer labs The Appease A model can only be used for spreadsheets and word processing and costs 1400 The Basic B model can be used for spreadsheets word processing and databases and costs 2000 The Capture C model can only be used for multimedia and costs 2500 Finally the Doitall D model can do any task and costs 3500 Due to class enrollments the school must have at least 100 machines capable of doing spreadsheets and word processing at least 50 machines capable of doing databases and at least 30 machines capable of doing multimedia The dealer the school is buying from has only 45 of model A available The school Wishes to minimize their total purchase cost The following is an LP formulation for the problem with solution and sensitivity analysis Let Anumber of Appease model purchased Let Bnumber of Basic model purchased Let Cnumber of Capture model purchased Let Dnumber of Doitall model purchased Minimize 1400A2000B2500C3500D Subject to A B D 2

Ifenrollment in the database course is limited to 45 students instead of the original 50 what would be the new total purchase costs for all the computers b If the dealer could supply three additional model A s what would be the new total purchase costs for all the computers c If the dealer agrees to lower the price for Model C computers at what new lower price would the B school consider buying any Model C computers d The dealer has wamed that the price of Model D computers may actually increase before the purchase order goes through At what higher price would the school consider changing the order e A local community college would like to offer a 60 person multimedia course in the B school s labs so the school will need 60 instead of30 multimedia computers The community college is willing to make a onetime payment of 30000 to do this Assuming the B school gets no other advantages than this one time payment should the school take the offer Why or why not Question 4 A product manager for a soap manufacturer must decide whether or not to offer a new biodegradable laundry detergent The projected pro t from a successful detergent is 2 million whereas failure of the product would result in a loss of 1 million The manager currently thinks there is a 40 chance that the product will be successful Not offering the product would not change profits a Construct a decision tree for this decision 0 What is the optimal strategy I What is the EMV of this strategy I What is the risk profile I What is the EVPI The manager also has the opportunity to test the product before taking it to market At a cost of 100000 the product can be tested Consumer testing can be favorable a 50 chance or unfavorable Given a favorable test result the chance of product success is judged to be 80 However for an unfavorable test result the chance of product success is judged to be only 30 b Construct a decision tree in PrecisionTree for this problem I What is the optimal strategy and its expected value I What is the risk profile for this strategy Question 5 Remington Manufacturing is planning its next production cycle The company can produce three products each of which must undergo machining grinding and assembly operations The following table summarizes the hours of machining grinding and assembly required by each unit of each product and the total hours of capacity available for each operation The per unit profit from each of the products and the setup costs are listed in the table below I Product 1 I Product 2 I Product 3 I I Profit per unit I 48 I 55 I 50 I Setup cost I 1000 800 900 Since there is a heavy demand for the products the marketing department believes that all the products produced within the available capacities can be sold The management of Remington wants to determine the most profitable miX of products to produce Formulate an integerprogramming model on behalf of Remington Define any variables you use and clearly specify the objective function and constraints Question 6 Building a backyard swimming pool consists of siX major activities According to the knowledge of activities and their immediate predecessors the project network is drawn

optimal solution changes when the value of a decision variable changes b When the objective function coefficient of a variable changes the current optimal solution may become infeasible c If a constraint is not binding at the current optimal solution then its shadow price is zero d As long as the objective function coefficient of a variable is in its optimality range the optimal objective function value remains the same The earliest start time for an activity is a Based on the length of the critical path b Determined by the maximum of the earliest finish times of its immediate
