Question 1

Based on the information presented in the scenario/case study discuss Albatross Anchor’s competitiveness in relation to:

(a) Cost (i.e., consider cost of production, economies of scale in material purchasing, cost of raw materials, and finished goods sitting idle in the warehouse).

(b) Speed of manufacturing process from order to finished product.

(c) Flexibility in filling order(s)

(d) Technology

(e) Capacity and facilities. The current floor plan is inefficient. Please tell what about the current floor plan makes it inefficient and give recommendations for improvement. What type of factory would be best for mixed model manufacturing?

(f) Service to customers (what types of services would an anchor company provide to marine wholesalers?)

Be sure to address all items in the list (above) and provide support for your conclusions.

Question 2

There are many ways that mushroom/bell anchors may be manufactured. Albatross Anchor is considering two new manufacturing processes (Process A and Process B) to reduce costs. From the available information below determine which process has the lowest breakeven point (this validates the process is more cost effective) and report your analysis and supporting conclusion.
