BUS 307 Week 2 Discussion 2 - Expected Values and Decision Trees
From the end of Chapter 6, consider the two capacity options for Arktec manufacturing from Problem 2 and the three possible demand scenarios from Problem 4, then complete Problem 5. First, draw the decision tree for Arktec Manufacturing. When drawing your tree, assume that managers must select a capacity option before they know what the demand level will actually be. Then, calculate the expected value for each decision branch. Which option would you prefer and why? Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
