Task Description
Computers can aided greatly in the
analysis of critical business factors in order to make optimum business
operations decisions. Your task is to determine the optimum product mix in order
to achieve total optimum revenue each week for a given set of variable
operational factors and variables market conditions for Compaq Computer
Corporation.
There is a given set of fixed factors that will be the
same every week. The fixed factors
are as follows:
§
There are 40 workerhours available per
manufacturing employee to build product each week.
§
It takes 3 hours for 1 manufacturing employee to
assemble a Compaq ProLiant Server.
§
It takes 1 hours for 1 manufacturing employee to
assemble a Compaq Laptop computer.
§
It takes 20 lbs. of sheet metal to build one Compaq
ProLiant Server.
§
It takes 2 lb. Of sheet metal to build one Compaq
Laptop computer.
§
It takes 1 lb. of plastic to build one Compaq ProLiant
Server.
§
It takes 3 lbs. of plastic to build one Compaq
Laptop Computer.
§
Demand for Compaq products is such that every
server or laptop assembled is immediately considered sold and included in that
week’s revenue
The
weekly fluctuating factors, which will be the Program Input are as follows:
§
Number of Manufacturing employees available to work
for a given week.
§
Lbs. of plastic on hand for a given week.
§
Lbs. of sheet metal available for a given week.
§
Selling Price of a Compaq ProLiant Server.
§
Selling Price of a Compaq Laptop Computer.
Program Input
The input file will contain 12
lines that correspond to 12 different weeks. Each line will consist of 5 numbers that are separated by
commas: # of employees, # of Lbs. of Sheet metal available, # of Lbs. of
plastic available, Server Selling Price, Laptop Selling Price.
For example the input on one line would be:
511,
4025, 3000, 6400, 2350
Program
Output
The program must respond to each
week’s input line by generating one output line that has 3 numbers separated by
commas: optimum # of servers to manufacture, optimum # of laptops to
manufacture, Optimum Total Revenue generated (in dollars, rounded to the
nearest dollar). Compaq can’t ship
partially assembled units so only count the # of whole units that can be
manufactured when outputting the optimum #’s of servers and laptops. Since the Program Input will have 12
lines, the Program Output should also have 12 lines.
The
example single input line given above would generate the following output example:
104,
965, 2933350
This
signifies that to achieve the optimum revenue for the given example week,
Compaq manufacturing should assemble 104 servers and 965 laptops for total
revenue of $2,933,350 dollars.
