Shirtstop makes T-shirts with logos and sells them in its chain of retail stores. It contracts with two different plants—one in Puerto Rico and one in The Bahamas. The shirts from the plant in Puerto Rico cost $0.46 apiece, and 9% of them are defective and can’t be sold. The shirts from The Bahamas cost only $0.35 each, but they have an 18% defective rate. Shirtstop needs 3,500 shirts. To retain its relationship with the two plants, it wants to order at least 1,000 shirts from each. It would also like at least 88% of the shirts it receives to be salable.
