Machines and advise the company on the policy or strategy that maximizes

net present values at the end of the branches
Follow the conventions of constructing decision trees, such as the basic
shapes distinguishing decision nodes from chance nodes
Clearly show all your workings explain/justify your recommendations
Question 2
Conduct a sensitivity analysis on your model and explain the implications to
the Mexton Machines decision problem.
Guidance notes:
Justify your selection of input variable(s) used as the basis of your sensitivity
Clearly show and explain the impact of your selected variables, with the aid
of graphical representations
Question 3
Discuss the strengths and limitations of your analysis in the context of the the
