330 Words | 2 PagesDisadvantage: * Technical evaluation after price negotiation causes an unfair price competition during auction between high quality suppliers and low quality suppliers. Suppliers with low quality may have lower cost structure comparing to high quality suppliers. Without setting the quality standard before the auction, it is likely that the auction winner may not be able to meet Casturn’s technical evaluation. * The cross-function time at step 5 have veto power.

1144 Words | 5 PagesIf they want to cut this by a factor of three to get it down to $4000, they need to multiply the sample size by 3^2=9, and get a sample size of 25×9= 225. Here is how we can calculate it more directly. We want ME = 4000, and we know ME = 2×SE. Therefore, SE = ME/2 =2000, and also, SE = SD/Square root of sample size. So, 2000 = 30000/Square root of sample size.

Because 500 is in this range, the $0.8 is valid. Thus, the value of 500 additional ounces is = 500 ($0.8) = $400. However, the local distributor has offered to sell Parket Sisters an additional 500 ounces of stainless steel for $0.60 per ounce more than it ordinarily pays, so the value of 500 additional ounces is =500(0.8)- 500 ($0.6) = $100>0. f. An increase of 500 in the RHS value of the third constraint is within the allowable range of increase for the shadow price of this constraint.
