A solar panel production factory is located in an area subject to occasional flooding You have been brought in as a consultant to determine whether flood – proofing of the building is economically justified . The alternatives are as follows :
Option A. Do nothing. Damage in a moderate flood is $10,000 and in a severe flood , $25,000
Option B. Install the stormwater pump at a cost of $15,000 to withstand moderate flooding without damage and to withstand severe flooding with $10,000 damages
Option C. Install the stormwater pump and upgrade the sewage system at a cost of $30,000 to withstand a severe flood without damage
In any year, the chance of no flooding is 0.29 and the chance of moderate flooding is 0.43.
1-What is the expected cost of Option B?
2-Draw the decision tree diagram base on the above information.
Draw a decision tree diagram based on the above information and determine which option do you recommend ? (10 points)
