The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

The memory chip company has determined that there are 3 possible general locations for building a key production facility as follows:

  • A rural location in the Southwest United States      that has offered major tax incentives and promised to make the      company exempt from certain local environmental restrictions
  • An overseas location in Southeast Asia that will      provide low cost labor, no tariffs consisting of 12–25 year old employees      that have been well-trained
  • A major metropolitan U.S. city that is the most      optimal from a workflow standpoint, has minimal tax incentives, and more      stringent local restrictions with the potential for an excellent employee      pool (numbers and quality)

Using course materials and other research, complete the following:

  • Identify the ethics implications of each alternative:      Postulate what situations might prove problematic, and describe how the      company should handle them.
  • Identify the methods the company should use in making      the final decision on this facility location.
  • Comment on other postings by critiquing the other      proposals and suggesting aspects of your classmates’ plans that may have      been overlooked.

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on 2 other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.

For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.
