Hazlemere Holdings have forecasted the long-term demand for an item at 1,000 units a week. Current facilities have only enough capacity to supply 800 units a week, but Hazlemere can introduce overtime, with fixed costs of £1,000 a week and variable cost of £10 a unit. Alternatively, they can use a sub-contractor who supplies the item for £18 a unit. Present facilities might also be extended, and then each unit could be made for £13. Unfortunately, the extension will take a year to install. What advice would you give to Hazlemere?
