Abstract

This case presents the problem of whether or not a small manufacturer should continue to produce domestically or close and source internationally. The case has information for simple analyses such as EOQ (economic order quantity) and breakeven analyses as well as for a rather complex linear programming model. The outcome of the actual situation is included for students to compare their recommendation with what the company eventually did. This case was sponsored by the Indiana University CIBER Case Collection.
