Question(s) / Instruction(s):

1 Marks: 5 Round Tree Manor is a hotel that provides two types of rooms with three rental classes: Super Saver, Deluxe, and Business. The profit per night for each type of room and rental class is as follows: Rental Class RoomSuper Saver DeluxeBusiness Type I $30$35 - Type II$20$30$40 Type I rooms do not have Internet access and are not available for the Business rental class. Round Tree's management makes a forecast of the demand by rental class for each night in the future. A linear programming model developed to maximize profit is used to determine how many reservations to accept for each rental class. The demand forecast for a particular night is 130 rentals in the Super Saver class, 60 rentals in the Deluxe class, and 50 rentals in the Business class. Round Tree has 100 Type I rooms and 120 Type II rooms. a. How many reservations can be accomodated in each rental class? Choose one answer. A. 100-Super Saver; 30-Deluxe; 90-Business B. 126-Super Saver; 60-Deluxe; 48-Business C. 120-Super Saver; 60-Deluxe; 50-Business D. 110-Super Saver; 60-Deluxe; 50-Business Question 2 Marks: 5 Please refer to Question #1. b.

A. 18.88 % B. 9.44 % C. 11.61 % D. 10.77 % Question 7 Marks: 5 Golf Shafts, Inc. (GSI), produces graphite shafts for several manufacturers of golf clubs. Three GSI manufacturing facilities, one located in San Diego, one in Tampa, and the other in Boston have the capability to produce shafts in varying degrees of stiffness, ranging from regular models used primarily by average golfers to extra stiff models used primarily by low-handicap and professional golfers. GSI just received a contract for the production of 200,000 regular shafts and 175,000 stiff shafts. Because all plants are currently producing shafts for previous orders, neither plant has sufficient capacity by itself to fill the new order. The San Diego plant can produce up to a total of 170,000 shafts, the Tampa plant can produce up to a total of 100,000 shafts, and the Boston plant can produce up to a total of 105,000 shafts. Because of equipment differences at each of the plants and differing labor costs, the per-unit production costs vary as shown here: San Diego CostTampa CostBoston Cost Regular shaft $5.25 $4.95$5.05 Stiff shaft$5.45 $5.70$5.32 a. How many regular shafts are to be produced in San Diego, Tampa and Boston plants respectively in order to minimize the cost? Choose one answer. A. 14250; 118450; 67300 B. 26512; 102246; 71242 C. 0; 100000; 100000 D. 10000; 105000; 85000 Question 8 Marks: 5 Please refer to Question #7. How many shafts (regular+stiff) in total do San Diego, Tampa and Boston plants have to produce in order to minimize the cost? Choose one answer. A. 175000; 95000; 105000 B. 182000; 100000; 93000 C. 170000; 100000; 105000 D. 165000; 100000; 110000 Question 9 Marks: 5 Please refer to Question #7. What is the value of the objective function?

Suppose that some of the previous orders at the Tampa plant could be rescheduled in order to free up additional capacity for the new order. Would this option be worthwhile? Why? Choose one answer. A. No; the surplus would increase the cost. B. Yes; the cost of production would further be minimized. C. No; there would be no change in the value of the objective function. D. Yes; let's give it a try! 11 Marks: 5 Please refer to Question #7. Suppose that the cost to produce a stiff shaft in Tampa had been incorrectly computed, and that the correct cost is $5.30 per shaft. What effect, if any, would the correct cost have on the original optimal solution? What effect would it have on total production cost (TPC)? Choose one answer. A. The objective function changes and TPC decreases. B. No effect on the objective solution; however TPC would decrease. C. No change in the objective function and TPC remains the same. D. No effect at all; TPC would remain the same. Question 12 Marks: 5 Edwards Manufacturing Company purchases two component parts from three different suppliers. The suppliers have limited capacity, and no one supplier can meet all the company's needs. In addition, the suppliers charge different prices for the components. Component price data (in price per unit) are as follows: Supplier Component1 2 3 1 $12 $13 $14 2 $10 $11 $10 Each supplier has a limited capacity in terms of the total number of components it can supply. However, as long as Edwards provides sufficient advance orders, each supplier can devote its capacity to component 1, component 2, or any combination of the two components, if the total number of units ordered is within its capacity. Supplier capacities are as follows.
