1 = $157,024 Since the present value for improving the product is larger than the present value for new product, the choice should be in favor of product improvement. 1 = $62,809 which is still larger than that for new product development. The value of expansion is thus: Value (Expansion) = $157,024 – 62,809 = $94,215. 7 REDUCTION OF OVERHEAD COSTS Some of the overhead costs are related to finance, human resources, IT, and legal functions. Overhead costs are known to grow directly with gross margins and they often grow faster than revenues.

Let us assume that XYZ is a small manufacturing company with $10 million in annual sales. It makes components for the automotive industry, and the key processes involved are forging and machining. The product-related operating activities are as follows: 1. Buying steel bars from outside vendors. 2. Testing steel bars upon delivery and moving them into storage. 3. Sending the bars to the forging area when needed for an order, the point at which they are sandblasted and cut to desired lengths. Since most of the bars are large, they are then moved in bins that hold 20–25 pieces.

3. Cumulative distribution functions. 5. Interpret the total project cost represented in a cumulative distribution to arrive at the following typical results: • There is an 80 percent probability that the total project cost will not exceed $D. • The minimum, most likely, and maximum total project costs are $A, $B, and $C, respectively. • The standard deviation of the total project cost is s, which represents the overall measure of the project risk. Results of this type are garnering excellent reception in industry as they inform better decision making.
