Alan Silko must decide whether to invest in seven statistical-process-control (SPC) stations in order to increase his chances of becoming a “select supplier” for a large computer company. The student must do a discounted-cash-flow/decision-tree analysis of the option. The student is also given the opportunity to construct x-bar and range charts and to do an SPC analysis.
