Wefixit has identified two potential sites for housing their equipment, spare parts, and employees. One site is Northwest of the Loop, and the other on is south of the Loop. The x, y coordinates for the printing company locations and potential sites for Wefixit are as follows: Type Printing Co. Printing Co. Printing Co. Printing Co. Wefixit Wefixit 24 18 North side West side South side 19 27 27 Northwest of Loop South of Loop 18 23 24 The estimate number of trips per year to each Printing Co. location is: 400 to Loop, 200 to North side, 200 to West side and 100 to South side.

They have recently started selling their vending machines in Southern California, with a great deal of success, at a price of $5,000 per machine. The company is convinced that they will need to either build a new plant near San Diego or expand their existing plant in New Orleans. If they build a new plant near San Diego, the annual fixed costs will be $6,000,000 and the variable costs will be S3,000 for each vending machine delivered to Southern California If they expand the New Orleans plant, their annual fixed costs for the expansion will be $2,000,000 and the variable costs will be $4,000 for each vending machine delivered to Southern California. (a) Determine the break-even quantity for building the new plant near San Diego. (b) Determine the break-even quantity for expanding the plant in New Orleans. (c) At what output will the two locations have the same total cost? (d) Assume that the demand forecast is less than the output in part c. Which option should the company choose?
