Conan CPU manufactures two types of computers (desktops and laptops) using two operations. A desktop requires 2 hours of operation 1 and 1 hour of operation 2. For laptops, one unit requires 1 hour of operation 1 and 3 hours of operation 2. The revenues per unit of desktops and laptops are $30 and $20, respectively. The total daily processing time available for each operation is 8 hours.

Using the sensitivity report generated using Excel answer the following questions: Suppose that the capacity of operation 1 is increased to 20 hours, how will this increase affect the optimum revenue? Explain and do not find new optimal value. If the capacity of operation 1 is increased from 8 hours to 13 hours, how will this increase impact the optimum revenue? Explain and find the new optimal value. A suggestion is made to increase the capacities of operations 1 and 2 at the additional cost of $10/hr for each operation. Is this advisable? Explain. If Conan CPU can increase the capacity of both operations, which operation should receive priority? Explain.
