You are a consultant who has been engaged by CB to create and evaluate their alternatives and provide a report. The following are some areas your report should address:

You should detail at least three possible distribution options for Chocoberry's new venture. Describe and provide flow diagrams for the alternative patterns. This includes the advantages and disadvantages for Chocoberry for the first year of the new chocolate product mix to reach the target markets identified to date. Select and justify the best for Chocoberry at this time using known data.

Some thoughts about distributing via the Internet:

- chocolate melts in warm weather; many chocolate companies will not ship product during warm weather or will not guarantee the quality of the shipped product unless dry ice is used (which drives up the shipping cost).

- and, who is going to buy chocolate on the internet without having tasted it first? Most chocolate companies build a demand for the taste of their product before they build an ecommerce site.

- Finally, this case is about identifying your customers and identifying the best sales channel to reach them (and getting product to that channel).

For example, (and this is just for illustration), if you think d-mortar'…...

...the Tartan 4100, which has a displacement of 23,245 pounds and a beam of 13.5 feet. | b) | Solve this formula for d.c) The accompanying graph shows C in terms of d for the Tartan 4100 (b = 13.5). For what displacement is the Tartan 4100 safe for ocean sailing? | Now are going to look the problem 103 page 605 in our text material. It states for a sailboat to be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening valve of C should be less than 2. Also it is stated the boat with the beam which is width and our variable b in feet and displacement d in pounds. So we are going to solve for C, d in the formula and that is: C=4d^-1/3b Going to solve for c now. Giving the formula we will plug the values and the exponents are first. C=4(23245)^-1/3(13.5) we will plug the values in for the variables. The exponents are first: C=4(.035)(13.5) when solving d with the exponents first, we have to multiply next: C=.14(13.5) now if we solve 4 with d for .14 C= 1.89 This is our resulting capsize screening value. | | | | | |...

...equations/formulas. The specific problem assigned gives real world value in understanding sailboats and the mathematical understanding of when the stability could be compromised or ideal. The problem is as follows: Sailboat stability. To be considered safe for ocean sailing, the capsize screening value C should be less than 2. For a boat with a beam (or width) b in feet and displacement d in pounds, C is determined by the function. C=4d-1/3 b (Dugopolski,2012) There are three parts to this problem a, b, and c. Each one will be worked out. a)Find the capsize screening value for the Tartan 4100, which has a displacement of 23,245 pounds and a beam 13.5ft. Using the formula and substituting the values given for the variables of d and b: C=4(23245)-1/3(13.5) First work the exponent by using the reciprocal due to the negative value C=4(.035)(13.5) Multiply all C=1.89 This is the capsize screening value(notice it is below 2 as needed) b) Solve for d of the formula C=4d-1/3b Start isolating d by dividing both sides by 4b C/4b=d-1/3 Now resolve the exponent by raising all sides by the power of 3. Notice that 4 is the cube root of 64. C3/64b3=d Flip so that d is on the left side Answer is: d=C3/64b3 C) The accompanying graph shows C in terms of d for the Tartan 4100......
