TEACHING SUGGESTIONS

Teaching Suggestion M3.1: Reviewing the Normal Curve. Most of the material in this supplement requires the use of the normal curve. A review of the basic principles of the normal curve found in the probability chapter (Chapter 2) would be helpful before this module is started. Teaching Suggestion M3.2: Covering Break-Even Analysis First. Covering break-even calculations rst helps students get into decision theory and normal curve analysis. This material will also help students get back into the fundamental principles of normal curve theory. Once break-even analysis has been mastered by students, they should be ready for the rest of the material in this module. Teaching Suggestion M3.3: Spending More Time on EVPI and the Normal Distribution. EVPI and the normal distribution concepts are difcult for many students. You may need to spend more time on this topic and reinforce the basic steps involved. Some instructors reduce coverage or eliminate this topic.

information to the number you obtained in step two. EVPI will always be equal to EOL. M3-5.

M3-1. The purpose of break-even analysis is to help a manager determine at what point overall revenue will equal overall cost. It can also help the manager to determine at a certain sales volume what revenues will be generated. This knowledge can assist the manager in making decisions as to whether or not to introduce a new product to the market. M3-2. The normal distribution can be used in break-even analysis when sales are symmetrical around the mean expected demand and follow a bell-shaped distribution (when demand is normally distributed), and when there is only one random variable. Usually, the normal distribution represents the demand for a new product. M3-3. The relationship between EMV and the state of nature must be linear when you use the computations presented in Equation M3-5 in determining EMV from the mean and the standard deviation. When this relationship is not linear, the approach used in computing EMV cannot be used. M3-4. When EVPI is to be computed using a state of nature that follows a normal distribution, three steps are required. The rst step is to determine the opportunity loss function. The second step is to determine the opportunity loss using the unit normal loss integral. The third step is to equate the expected value of perfect
