Transcribed text From Image: Login in to Capsim. Click Getting Started. Situation Analysis. Consumer Report. The chart on the page breaks down the price and reliability ranges from the customer buying criteria for the Traditional segment with a corresponding grade. Capsim recommends doing a similar analysis for each segment. Note how the high to low range for MBTF was split evenly to get a grade of A, B, or C. Using the same logic for the Performance Segment, what is the minimum MTBF needed to get an A grade based on the Round 0 customer criteria from the Industry Conditions Report? Select one: a. 25,333 b. 27000 c. 22,000 d. 23,667 e. 16000 f. 12,000 g. 17,000 Consumer Report The Consumer Report illustrates the aspects of your product offerings that are important to your consumers. In this exercise, you will "grade your product based upon how well it is meeting the customer expectations. Keep in mind that the customer buying criteria represents the “perfect product" in the eyes of the consumer. However, supplying the perfect product may not always be feasible or cost effective for your company. You will need: · The Buying Criteria from the Segment Analysis pages (pages 5-9) in the Round 0 Capstone Courier. In the customer buying criteria (located in the top left-hand corner of the segment analysis reports), you will find a range for both price and reliability (MTBF) that customers find acceptable. In the “Top Products" section (located at the very bottom of the segment analysis report), you will find your product's current price and MTBF. Based on where your price and reliability (MTBF) fall within that range, you will assign a "grade." For example, if the list price of your product is $28 while the acceptable range is $20-$30, then it would fall in the top of the range and earn a "C" grade. The chart below breaks down the price and reliability ranges from the customer buying criteria for the Traditional segment with a corresponding grade. You will need to do a similar analysis for each segment. To score an A To score a B To score ac Price* $20.00-$23.33 $23.34 - $26.67 $26.67 - $30.00 Reliability* 17,334 - 19,000 15,667 - 17,333 14,000 - 15,666 Age 0.5 year away from ideal 1 year away from ideal 1+ years away from ideal Positioning 0.5 away from ideal 0.6 - 1 away from ideal 1 away from ideal Awareness 80% - 100% 51% - 80% 0% - 50% Accessibility 51% - 80% 0% - 50% Overall (The top two buying criteria is listed in the Capstone Courier Segment Analysis reports) 80% - 100% The top two buying criteria for the segment were rated A and the awareness and accessibility were rated at least a B. The top two buying criteria for the segment were rated B and the awareness and accessibility were rated at least a B. If you are not able to meet the criteria to score an A or B, then your score will be a c. *Keep in mind that consumers want a low priced product with high reliability, so that will impact the "grade" that is assigned to your product.
Expert Chegg Question Answer:
The reliabilities( MTBF) to score A is from 17334-19000. So, the minimum MTBF needed to score A will be 17000.
