    Memory chip manufacturer has determined that there are three possible general locations for building a key production facility:

    1) a rural location in the southwest United States that has offered major tax incentives and promised to make Manychip exempt from certain local environmental restrictions
    2) an overseas location in Southeast Asia that will provide low cost labor, no tariffs consisting of 12 - 25 year old employees that have been well-trained
    3) a major metropolitan U.S. city that is the most optimal from a workflow standpoint, has minimal tax incentives and more stringent local restrictions with the potential for an excellent employee pool (numbers and quality)

    2. What methods would suggest the company should use in making the final decision on this facility location.
