Q1: Saudi company for the production of soap wants to create a factory, if provided with three alternatives for the establishment of the
Plant in three cities:
1- . Create a small factory in Al-Kharj production capacity amounting / 100 / thousand units annually and fixed cost estimates /$ 50
Thousand and the variable cost estimates /$2.5/ per unit.
2- Set up medium factory in Riyadh production capacity amounting / 200 / thousand units per year and fixed cost estimates / $80 thousand /
And the variable cost estimates /$3.1/ per unit.
3- . Create a large factory in Hail production capacity amounting / 300 thousand units annually and fixed cost estimates / $120 thousand /
And the variable cost estimates /$3.6/ per unit.
And you have the following information:
1- The production of each factory is constant, (the production levels does not vary with demand)
2- The unit that are not sold according to demand, it price becomes zero
3- . The demand is expected / 60 /, / 85 /, / 133 /, thousand units respectively, with probability 25%, 40%, 35% respectively.
4- Selling price per unit = $ 12
