    If you will do it, I need to know your charge. since I failed to include it previously.

    Please see the question with the other three parts to the assignment you are working on. I thought it was included but it was not. Please let me know if you can do or if I need someone else to do it for me. Thank you!

    In SLP2, you will again be provided the numbers to be input for each of four decision points. For purposes of SLP2, pricing will be more conservative (lower) than the pricing strategy reflected in the Module 1 SLP.


    Run the simulation, entering the following numbers at each of the four major decision points:

    1) Decision 1: For Years 2008-2012

    a) Pricing - Manual

    b) Module Price - $0.13

    c) Revenue to Process Improvement - 5%

    d) Years to Advance - 5 years

    2) Decision 2: For Years 2013-2017

    a) Pricing - Manual

    b) Module Price - $0.11

    c) Revenue to Process Improvement - 5%

    d) Years to Advance - 5 years

    3) Decision 3: For Years 2018-2022

    a) Pricing - Manual

    b) Module Price - $0.09

    c) Revenue to Process Improvement - 5%

    d) Years to Advance - 5 years

    4) Decision 4: For Years 2023-2025

    a) Pricing - Manual

    b) Module Price - $0.08

    c) Revenue to Process Improvement - 5%

    d) Years to Advance - To end

    NOTE: Do not change the numbers displayed in the "Settings" tab!

    At each of the four (4) decision points above, you are required to analyze the impact of your Module Price on market share and total profits. You are also required to determine how process improvements yield a reduction in unit costs. Be sure to copy tables and charts to support your analysis. You may need t use Excel to edit the charts and tables. However, do not use figures and tables as "space fillers" - use these only to support your analysis.

    Keys to the Assignment

    The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered and taken into account in preparing your 5-6 page paper include:

    Include discussion and analysis of key metrics at the end of each decision point (e.g., among other data, be sure to include total market share, revenue, cumulative profit, consumer net price, modular price, unit cost, etc.). As an MBA, it is your job to identify cause and effect!
    For each decision point, be sure to include comparative tables that include what you believe to be the most important data. Don't merely recite the data, however - instead, analyze the data! As an MBA, what does it tell you?
    Make recommendations. What would you have done differently as it relates to pricing, process improvement, or other?
    Compare and contrast the pricing decisions made in SLP1 and SLP2. Give key metrics that demonstrate how the different pricing decisions have affected market share, cost to the customer, cost of goods sold, revenue, profits, etc., etc.
    Be sure that you retain all SLP2 notes, tables, and figures, as you will be comparing the results of SLP2 with those of SLP3 in the next module.

    **** NOTE: The 5-6 page requirement includes written analysis and all supporting tables, figures, and graphics. However, it does not include Cover or Reference page. Be sure to adhere to the TUI Writing Guide for formatting of all papers. If you are unsure how to complete a financial analysis, please review the following sample report:

    //The module price of the product has direct impact on the market share of the business. In this context, in the following discussion the impact of changes in the module price of the product to estimate the improvement in the market share and total profitability is explored. There is also a discussion over the impact of cost of the product to increase the overall profitability.//

    On the basis of SLP 1, it is clear that the company can reduce the price to a certain level and because of limited cost reduction facility. The high reduction in the price of the product causes an increase in the cost of the product from the lowest cost of the product. This means that there cannot be a high decrease in the price of the product to simulate the process to test the impact of reduction in the price of the investment, revenue, profitability, emission, market share, and competitiveness of the company.

    1) Decision 1: For Years 2008-2012

    The existing market price of the product, on the basis of competitors, is $0.15 that means the price can not exceed this price otherwise the company will not be able to gain the market share. The prime purpose for the reduction in the price is to increase the market share in order to survive for a long time with high growth. The price of the product is set at $0.13 in order to increase the market share and the cumulative profitability of the company. All the inputs for simulation process are given below:

    a) Pricing - Manual, b) Module Price - $0.13, c) Revenue to Process Improvement - 5%, d) Years to Advance - 5 years
    (See Screenshot in attached file)

    Output of Simulation

    The output report of the simulation indicates that the impact of module price of $0.13 on the market share is positive because it increases the market share to 4.85%. The cumulative profit of the company is increased to $51.84 million, which supports the price reduction in order to improve the overall growth of the company in the near future. The process of improvement yields a reduction in cost because the ...
