What would be your decision if you, alone, were presented with the dilemma? How would you come up with a decision? Are there questions you would want to ask before making a final decision? If so, what are those questions?–If it were all left up to me, I would turn down the mid-sized order or at least try to delay its completion until after my regular run has met its required number of orders. I would come to this decision after asking myself the following: How much time will be lost in the conversion of the machine? How much man power time will be lost in the transition from large to medium scale product? Is the money that will be earned from the special order going to be enough to cover the lost time and revenue from the big order that was set aside in order to complete the special run.
