Mike Farnworth is the appointed BC Minister of Public Emergency Control. His ministry is responsible to ensure the Province of BC is fully prepared for any type of large natural disasters, such as earthquakes, floods or adverse weather conditions.
Mike just completed a review of the existing operation and was shocked that while many studies have been done over the years, little actual activity has taken place. BC is clearly not prepared and Mike has turned to your consulting group to develop and implement a total plan as quickly as possible.
Mike has made it clear that cost must be considered when determining levels and locations of suppliers and it would be infeasible to have supplies located in each and every town or city in the Province so this fact must be taken into consideration in your plan

Scenario # 3
Mark Johnston is the Operation Manager for Mountain Safety Supplies. The firm supplies PPE to several different industries such as construction, transportation, and medical including hospitals and long term care facilities across British Columbia. The firm has a central office/warehouse in Burnaby on Eastlake drive and retail locations with back-end warehouses in most major towns on Vancouver Island and Interior and Northern BC. These retail stores are replenished from Mountains main warehouse on a weekly basis due to the fact they are quite small and can only hold 1.5 weeks’ worth of stock
The retail stores carry items that would be used regularly by businesses:
Mountain also carries some larger items like ultraviolet lamps, portable hand washing stations. These are stocked in the main warehouse and shipped direct whenever ordered by customers.
Due to rapidly increasing costs Mark is moving the office/warehouse to a newly purchased building in a business park in Langley within the next three months. The timing is not good as Mountain is entering its busiest season of the year, but the cost reduction means the move must take place soon. Mark has contacted your group to help her develop a warehouse move/transition plan to ensure the move goes smoothly. The move must take place over only a few days – he is adamant that there can be no disruption to the flow on replenishment orders to the retail locations nor or direct shipments to customers.
