Specialized Products Prepares a Bid (English)

How to put in the best bid possible for a project.

Based on data from a company owned by a CKGSB alumna, the Specialized Products case challenges students to use microeconomic principles to prepare bidding strategies for projects in the competitive metal parts industry in a variety of scenarios.


Students must analyze the case to calculate fixed costs, variable costs, marginal costs, economic profit and accounting profit. The case is largely quantitative in nature.
