Get answer to Solve Problem and Applications: ch 13- prob 7 [Klein Industries manufactures three types of portable air compressors] in page 451 at the end of chapter 13 in your textbook, USA 5th edition. The data is given as part of the question. There is no external data set provided. Use what is given by the problem. You need to submit a formal APA paper to explain all your findings together with your Excel Worksheet to demonstrate you have set up the Solver correctly. In the paper, you also need to explain how you set up the LP model to solve this case study. 13-7. Klein Industries manufactures three types of portable air compressors: small, medium, and large, which have unit profits of $20.50, $34.00, and $42.00, respectively. The projected monthly sales are: Small Medium Large Minimum 14,000 6,200 2,600 Maximum 21,000 12,500 4,200 The production process consists of three primary activities: bending and forming, welding, and painting. The amount of time in minutes needed to process each product in each department is shown below: Small Medium Large Available Time Bending/forming 0.4 0.7 0.8 23,400 Welding 0.6 1.0 1.2 23,400 Painting 1.4 2.6 3.1 46,800 How many of each type of air compressor should the company produce to maximize profit? a. Formulate and solve a linear optimization model using the auxiliary variable cells method and write a short memo to the production manager explaining the sensitivity information. b. Solve the model without the auxiliary variables and explain the relationship between the reduced costs and the shadow prices found in part a. Solution Tip: You must use Solver tool in Excel. Set your constraints right, and fill in the solver dialogue box properly. Be sure to review links provided in the last lesson, or in one of the announcements in the first week of class.
