1. Using the sample data given in table 2 - 20 make a recommendation for how many units of each style Wally should make during the initial phase of production. Assume that all ten of the styles in the sample problem are made in Hong Kong and that Wally's initial production commitment must be at least 10,000 units. Ignore price differences among styles in your initial analysis.
The pivotal point that stands out in that question is the fact that the price differences among styles should be ignored.  The wholesale selling price for all will be 112.5 dollars (Simchi-Levi, Kaminsky, & Simchi-Levi, 2008).  The expected profit on each parka sold was approximately 24 percent which would be 27 dollars, and the expected loss on each parka left unsold was approximately eight percent which would be nine dollars (Simchi-Levi et al., 2008). The production process with any organization holds the key to the competitiveness in the market (Johnson, 2013).  If an organization can establish the facets of production in order to create a more successful business model the organization can have more success in the competitive market (Johnson, 2013). The chart below illustrates the initial production commitment.  From this information it can be determined that the initial demand is half of the total production, as each number is greater than the Hong Kong's minimum production quantity of 600 units (Simchi-Levi et al., 2008). The total quantity of ordering, as displayed on the chart, is 13,180 which is more than Wally's initial production commitment of 10,000 units. Based on the chart Wally's total quantity for initial production commitment is 13,180.

2. Can you come up with a measure of risk associated with your ordering policy? This measure should be quantifiable.
One of the most powerful tools used to address variability in the supply chain is the concept of risk pooling (Simchi-Levi et al., 2008).  Risk pooling suggest that demand variability is reduced if one aggregates demand across locations (Simchi-Levi...
