Product Overview

This series of cases (see also the A [UVA-E-0107], B [UVA-E-0108], C [UVA-E-0109], and E [UVA-E-0147] cases) takes students through five design-and-manufacturing decisions confronting Albin Kalin, managing director of Rohner Textil AG, a textiles manufacturer in northeastern Switzerland. After the compostable fabric is developed, produced, and marketed, Rohner's supplier of ramie yarn, an essential component of the fabric, goes bankrupt. Kalin must choose among four mills that have the technical capability to produce ramie, each of which has strengths and weaknesses. In analyzing these choices, students must use decision analysis tools and review the decisions of the related cases.
