Chapter 8 Problems 6 - A firm that has recently experienced an enormous growth rate is seeking to lease a small plant in Memphis, TN; Biloxi, MS; or Birmingham, AL. Prepare an economic analysis of the three locations given the following information: Annual costs for building, equipment, and administration would be $40,000 for Memphis, $60,000 for Biloxi, and $100,000 for Birmingham. Labor and materials are expected to be $8 per unit in Memphis, $4 per unit in Biloxi, and $5 per unit in Birmingham. The Memphis location would increase system transportation costs by $50,000 per year, the Biloxi location by $60,000 per year, and the Birmingham location by $25,000 per year. Expected annual volume is 10,000 units. ? Memphis, TN Building, equipment, administration costs = $40,000 Labor and materials = $8/unit Increased transportation costs = $50,000 Expected volume = 10,000 units Economic Analysis = $40,000 + $50,000 + $80,000 (10,000 * $8) = $170,000 Biloxi, MS Building, equipment, administration costs = $60,000 Labor and materials = $4/unit Increased transportation costs = $60,000 Expected volume = 10,000 units Economic Analysis = $60,000 + $60,000 + $40,000 (10,000 * $4) = $160,000 Birmingham, AL Building, equipment, administration costs = $100,000 Labor and materials = $5/unit Increased transportation costs = $25,000 Expected volume = 10,000 units Economic Analysis = $100,000 + $25,000 + $50,000 (10,000 * $5) = $175,000 13 - A clothing manufacturer produces women’s clothes at four locations in Mexico.
