4: J.Q. is aggressive and is going to recommend that his father cancel the contract with one of the warehouses and give that business to a competing warehouse in the same city. J.Q. feels that when word of this gets around, the other warehouses they use will “shape up.” Which of the seven should J.Q. recommend be dropped? Why?
5: The year 2013 is nearly half over. J.Q. is told to determine how much the firm is likely to spend for warehousing at each of the eight warehouses for the last six months of 2013. Do his work for him.
6: When comparing 2012 figures with the 2013 figures shown in the table, the amount budgeted for each warehouse in 2013 was greater than actual 2012 costs. How much of the increase is caused by increased volume of business (units shipped) and how much by inflation?
