Answer the following questions when preparing your case report. Ignore price differences among
styles in your analysis (this will keep your analysis simple.)
1. Using the sample data in Exhibit 10, make a recommendation for how many units of each style Wally
Obermeyer should order during the initial phase of production. Assume that there is no minimum
order size requirement, and that Obermeyer’s initial production commitment must be at least
10,000 units. Assume that an initial order of 10,000 units leaves sufficient capacity for the second
order.
2. Using the sample data in Exhibit 10, make a recommendation for how many units of each style Wally
Obermeyer should order during the initial phase of production. Assume that all ten styles in the
sample problem are made in Hong Kong (a minimum commitment of 600 units per style ordered),
and that Obermeyer’s initial production commitment must be at least 10,000 units. Ignore price
differences among styles in your initial analysis. Clearly spell out the methodology you have used to
make your ordering decisions in an exhibit. Spell out the logic behind your methodology. Note that I
am not looking for one optimal solution. My focus will be on your thinking about how such an
issue can be approached.
3. Repeat your methodology now assuming that all ten styles are made in China. What differences (if
any) result?
4. How should Obermeyer management think about sourcing in Hong Kong versus China? What
sourcing policy would you recommend?
