Harkin electronics is planning its production

This answer was rated:

Harkin Electronics is planning its production for the next quarter for its two product lines, relays and capacitors. The profit contribution is $250 for a case of relays and $200 for a case of capacitors. Three resources limit how much of each product the company can produce: labor, stamping capacity, and testing capacity. Next quarter 80,000 labor hours will be available; a case of relays requires 200 labor hours and a case of capacitors requires 150. The stamping machine will be available for 1,200 hours next quarter and a case of relays requires 4 hours on the stamping machine and a case of capacitors requires 2 hours. Relays require 3 hours of testing per case and capacitors require 5. The testing machine will be available for 2,000 hours next quarter. For every box of capacitors, the company can produce no more than two boxes of relays. At a minimum the company must produce at least 150 boxes of relays.
