• Do you have a Master Mind?? Crack the code!

The hidden message reads "This train was constructed in the city La Rochelle"

It is a reference to the TGV train from France

If I win, I would like the prize transfered to M1.1 Nordic Rail

• Chapter 4

I would select option 4 as it is cheapest and gets the passengers to Hicksburg in due time for the connection.

Option 1: The train will take 2 hours 4 mins for the trip with normal arrival at 8:34 pm. Adding 4 hour for the fix will cause the train to arrive 34 mins past midnight and therefore add a cost of \$30,000 on top of the \$8,000 reimbursement = \$38,000

Option 2: Cancellation is 2x \$8,000 = \$16,000

Option 3: Adding 90 mins to the travel time calculated in option 1 will cause the train to arrive at 10:04 pm which is in due time for the connecting train. Cost \$12,000

Option 4: The train will travel at 120 km/h (40% of 300). It will therefore take 5 hours 10 mins to travel causing the train to arrive at 11:40 pm in due time for the connection. Cost \$0

I would select Swiss Metal

The rationale (or formula) for selecting the supplier is based on a weighted score system based on

Quality x 4 + Price x 2 + punctuality.

Each parameter is converted into values between 0-100, i.e. High quality=100, Avg= 50, Low = 0; Low price = 100, med = 50, high = 0; Punctuality = number of stars x 20, i.e. 3 stars=60, 4 stars = 80:

Mech-Heads = (0 x 4) + (100 x 2) + (3 x 20) = 260 pts

Swiss Metal = (100 x 4) + (0 x 2) + (4 x 20) = 480 pts

General Machines = (50 x 4) + (50 x 2) + (4 x 20) = 380 pts
