DryIce, Inc., is a manufacturer of air conditioners that has seen its demand grow significantly. The
company anticipates nationwide demand for the next year to be 180,000 units in the South,
120,000 units in the Midwest, 110,000 units in the East, and 100,000 units in the West. Managers
at DryIce are designing the manufacturing network and have selected four potential sites—New
York, Atlanta, Chicago, and San Diego. Plants could have a capacity of either 200,000 or 400,000
units. The annual fixed costs at the four locations are shown in the following table, along with the
cost of producing and shipping an air conditioner to each of the four markets.
a. Where should DryIce build its factories and how large should they be? How much should
be shipped from each factory to each demand region? [Hint: use the Excel template of
capacitated plant location model]
b. DryIce decided to allocate plants to demand regions (instead of using plant-location
method). If a plant is allocated to a demand region, then the plant will produce the
demand quantity of the region(s) allocated which is subject to the capacity of the plant.
For example, if New York low capacity plant is allocated to supply to East region, then it
will produce the demand of east region: 111,000 units and the excess capacity of the New
York plant will be 90,000 units (Capacity – Production = 200,000 – 111,000 = 90,000).
Which plants (location and capacity) should be kept open? Which plant should be
allocated to which demand region? [Hint: use the Excel template of plant location with
single source model]5. [30 points] Show your work to earn full credit
StayCool, a manufacturer of high-quality refrigerators in India has one factory, located in Mumbai.

required supply from each parts plant, and the shipping cost for each supply source or market are
shown in the table below.
a. Find out the x, y coordinates for the new factory which minimizes the total transportation
cost. What is the total cost? [Hint: use Gravity location model Excel template].
b. Using the grid technique, re-calculate the x, y coordinates for the new factory which
minimizes total transportation cost. What is the total cost? [Hint: use Grid technique Excel
c. Compare the answers of (a) and (b). Are location decisions in (a) and (b) the same? If they
differ, explain why.
