Deliverable Length: 750–1,000 words

Info:

Acting on your recommendation that the retiring purchasing manager be replaced with a more up-to-date Vice President of Global Supply Chain, the CEO hired a new one. The new VP immediately found herself facing an important decision of where to source some components that have traditionally been very high cost, when the factory makes them in-house. Here is the data she is presented with:

• The currency of Country A is called Reds; of Country B is called Greens.
• The currency and forecasted exchange rates are as follows:
• \$1 = 2 Reds
• \$1 = 2.2 Greens
• The product costs for each of the 5 products from each of the 2 countries are as follows:
 Country A Country B Product 1 10 Reds 9 Greens Product 2 2 Reds 2.2 Greens Product 3 7  Reds 4 Greens Product 4 5  Reds 5 Greens Product 5 4  Reds 4.5 Greens
• Because of the different packaging available in the two countries, and the different skill levels in packaging, the parts per container are different between the two countries.
• From Country A, any of the 5 parts will fit 1,000 per container
• from Country B, any of the 5 parts will fit 800 per container
• The ocean freight costs for a 40' container of any of these products are as follows:
• For Country A, costs are similar to the ocean freight from Brisbane, Australia to the port of New York City.
• for Country B, costs are similar to the ocean freight for a 40' container from Tokyo, Japan to the port of New York City.
• Brisbane ocean costs = \$5,536.84 and Tokyo ocean coasts = \$4,426.84

Assignment:

Take Product 1 and then:

·  Perform the necessary research and calculations regarding the best source of that product based only on total delivered (landed) cost, which includes the following:

• Product cost from each country, taking the exchange rate into account
• Ocean freight costs per piece, showing the quotes received from the Web site (posted below), and taking the differing number of pieces per container into account

·  Make a recommendation on which country from which to source that product, and explain your reasoning why.
