Dan Jacobs, production manager for GreenLife, invested in computer- controlled production machinery last year. He purchased the machinery from Superior Design at a cost of $ 3,000,000. A representative from Superior Design has recently con-tacted Dan because the company has designed an even more efficient piece of machinery. The new design would double the production output of the year- old machinery but would cost GreenLife another $ 4,500,000. Jacobs is afraid to bring this new equipment to the company president’s attention because he convinced the president to invest $ 3,000,000 in the machinery last year.
Explain what is relevant and irrelevant to Jacobs’ dilemma. What should he do?
