Write a cogent, businesslike memo (one page only, formatted like this page) to the manager of Snako Oil. Begin with a specific recommendation about how to use the currently-available resources. Then go on to discuss possible additional profit that could be made if a specific additional amount of one of the ingredients could be acquired at a higher price on the spot market. Be sure to specify the highest spot price management should be willing to pay.
Include a brief, accurate, quantitative, and non-technical justification for whatever you recommend using specific numbers from the sensitivity analysis. Your memo must be self-contained, not requiring the reader to also look at the spreadsheet.
Use business language; do NOT use any linear programing jargon. Do nut use any of the following words: dual, shadow, allowable.
The spreadsheets are on the website, so don;t turn those
in; turn in only the one page memo.
If two students turn in papers that
show signs that one student copied from another, they shared files, or
both studentss copied from a common rough draft, both students will
grade of zero. I will not be the judge of who is the copier and
is the person being copied from whether willingly or negligently.
