ronald lau chief engineer at south dakota electronics has to decide whether to build 3599175

Ronald Lau, chief engineer at South Dakota Electronics, has to decide whether to build a new state-of-the-art processing facility. If the new facility works, the company could realize a profit of $200,000. If itfails, South Dakota Electronics could lose $180,000. At this time, Lau estimates a 60% chance that thenew process will fail. The other option is to build a pilot plant and then decide whether to build acomplete facility. The pilot plant would cost $10,000 to build. Lau estimates a 50-50 chance that thepilot plant will work. If the pilot plant works, there is a 90% probability that the complete plant, if it isbuilt, will also work. If the pilot plant does not work, there is only a 20% chance that the completeproject (if it is constructed) will work. Lau faces a dilemma. Should he build the plant? Should he buildthepilot project and then make a decision?
