here is my results from that round mentioned above. I dominated, but not for the complete reasons
that you think. I decided to not produce 100% second shift on Cedar, my Low-End product. This is
because my capacity is super high at 2,578 from the earlier round increases. So instead of making
5,156 items, I figured what is my middle ground and what can i handle in the worst case scenario of
20% market share if I don't sell. I made a low price, maybe to low, of $16.00 cause i wanted to be sure
I would sell that extra 1,863 that I didn't sell the round before. Once I knew I could handle that 20%
worst case, then I gave my self 2 extra months of inventory to help my inventory out. I did that by
(projected unit sales * .16) which gave me an inventory to sell up to 30% market share. I was able to
cover that cost in my worst case scenario as well. Every other product was easy to figure. Here was
my exact results:
Traditional - Sold 3,043 (29%) - left over inventory 611 - sold at $26.00
Low-End - Sold 3,756 (27%) - left over inventory 450 - sold at $16.00 (maybe to low, but it worked)
High-End - Sold 1,036 (22%) - left over inventory 152 (perfect) - sold at $38.00
Pfmn - Sold 1,145 (29%) - Stocked outed!!! (my capacity was 600 so i lost a few sales) - sold at

$32.85
Size (my worst market) - Sold 349 (9%) - left over inventory 328 (bad) - sold at 33.00
