53) A production process requires a fixed cost of $50,000 and the variable cost per unit is $25.  The revenue per unit was projected to be $45, but a recent marketing study shows that because of an emerging competitor, the revenue will be about 12% lower.  How does this affect the break-even point?

63) Students are organizing a “Battle of the Bands” contest.  They know that at least 100 people will attend.  The rental fee for the hall is $150 and the winning band will receive $500.  In order to guarantee that they break even, how much should they charge for each ticket? 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

64) A popular performer is scheduled to appear at a major city. The promoter is deciding between two venues, the larger of which costs $20,000 to rent and the smaller of which costs $12,000 to rent. Ticket prices for the smaller venue are $20, but the promoter is unsure what to charge per ticket for the larger venue. If exactly 1000 customers arrive, what percentage change in ticket prices would make the profit at the large venue identical to that of the smaller venue?

67) A manufacturer buys peas for vegetable pies from two cooperatives. The price per unit is $6 from cooperative A and $5.50 per unit from cooperative B. The manufacturer needs at least 12,000 units of peas. Cooperative A can supply up to 8000 units, and cooperative B can supply at least 6000 units. Develop constraints for these conditions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

68) A group of professors struggles to craft a set of assessment questions for their operations management intro class. They want to cover four topic areas with at least four questions each and have no more than twenty questions total for the assessment. What would a set of constraints look like if they chose an optimization approach to the assessment?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

69) What are some different types of decision support systems?

 

 

 

 

 

70) A manager of the cereal bar at the college campus has determined that the profit made for each bowl of Morning Buzz cereal sold, x, is equal to:  Z = $4x – 0.5x.  Each bowl of Morning Buzz weighs 6 ounces, and the manager has 12 lbs (192 ounces) of cereal available each day, which can be written as the constraint, 6x ≤ 192.  What maximum profit will be made from Morning Buzz if it is all sold in one day?
