Tutor description

Based on the available information, is Atlanta the best location for a distribution center to serve the southeastern region? If not, what would you recommend? 1.Use Excel to complete the table and calculations! Show the details behind the results. Use $7/CWT for shipments "From Atlanta." 2.Familiarize yourself with the "Example of a Heuristic Modeling Approach: The Grid Technique" described starting on pg 542. 3.Note the meaning of the "Lower" and "Upper-Case" variables denoted on pg 544. Lower Case = Raw materials, Upper-Case = Finished Goods. 4.Study Table 12-2 to verify the Grid Center justifies Atlanta; does it or not, verify how close the number comes to the locations specified on pg 558. 5.Given the state of freight costs and different modes available, does it make sense for the business, what would you recommend.

"Fireside Tire Company, a manufacturer of radial tires for sport utility vehicles, sells its products in the automotive aftermarket and distribution them throughout the United States. Fireside has three tire production plants located in Allentown, Pennsylvania; Toledo, Ohio; and Macomb, Illinois (see map). Normally, Fireside ships tires from its plants to distribution centers, but truckload-size purchases typically are transported directly from plants to customer locations. All shipments to a region move under truck-load rates applying to a minimum weight of 40,000 pounds, or 400 cwt.Firesid
