The Bennet Company purchases one of its essential raw materials

The Bennet Company purchases one of its essential raw materials from three suppliers. Rennet’s current policy is so distribute purchases equally among the three. The owner’s son, Benjamin Rennet, just graduated from a business college. He proposes that these suppliers be rated (high numbers mean a good performance) on six performance criteria weighted as shown in the table. A total score hurdle of 0.60 is proposed to screen suppliers. Purchasing policy would be revised to order raw material from suppliers with performance scores greater than the total score hurdle, in proportion to their performance rating scores.
