The Best Wheels Bicycle Company produces bicycles in different styles for boys and girls, in heights of 26 inches or 20 inches, and with 10 speeds, 3 speeds, or 1 speed.
a. How many different kinds of bicycles does Best Wheels make?
b. Construct a modular bill of material for Best Wheels (one level). Assume that bike sales are equally split between boys and girls, 26-inch bikes are preferred two-to-one to 20-inch bikes, and 3-speed bikes account for only 20% of sales. The remaining sales are divided equally between 10-speed and 1-speed bikes.
c. If bicycle sales are expected to reach 10,000 over the holiday shopping season, how many 26-inch bikes should Best Wheels plan to produce? How many 10- speed bikes?
