Using the sample data given in Table2-20, make a recommendation for how many units of each style Wally should male during the initial phase of production. Assume that all of the 10 styles in the sample problem are made in Hong Kong and that Wally’s initial production commitment must be at least 10,000 units. Ignore price differences among styles in your initial analysis. Style Mean Std Dev produce (avg-2SD) Hong Kong Gail 1017 388 639 629
