22.11

The owner of a clothing store must decide how many men’s shirts to order
for the new season. For a particular type of shirt, she must order in
quantities of 100 shirts. If she orders 100 shirts, her cost is \$10 per shirt;
if she orders 200 shirts, her cost is \$9 per shirt; and if she orders 300 or
more shirts, her cost is \$8.50 per shirt. Her selling price for the shirt is
\$12, but any shirts that remain unsold at the end of the season are sold at her
famous “half-price, end-of-season sale.” For the sake of simplicity, she is
willing to assume that the demand for this type of shirt will be 100, 150, 200,
or 250 shirts. Of course, she cannot sell more shirts than she stocks. She is
also willing to assume that she will suffer no loss of goodwill among her customers
if she understocks and the customers cannot buy all the shirts they want.
Furthermore, she must place her order today for the entire season; she cannot
wait to see how the demand is running for this type of shirt.

• a. Construct the payoff table to help the owner
decide how many shirts to order.
• b. Set up the opportunity loss table.
• c. Draw the decision tree.
