Question

In the current no-backlogging problem, SureStep doesn’t hire any workers, and it uses almost no overtime. This is evidently because of low demand. Change the demands to 6000, 8000, 5000, and 3000, and rerun Solver. Is there now any hiring and/or overtime? With this new demand pattern, explore the trade-off between hiring and overtime by running a two-way SolverTable. As inputs, use the hiring cost per worker and the maximum overtime hours allowed per worker per month, varied over reasonable ranges. As outputs, use the total number of workers hired over the four months and the total number of overtime hours used over the four months. Discuss the results.
