Investing $2,000,000 in TQM’s Channel Support Systems initiative will at a minimum increase demand for your products 1.7% in this and in all future rounds. (Refer to the TQM Initiative worksheet in the CompXM.xls Decisions menu.) Looking at the Round 0 Inquirer for Andrews, last year’s sales were $163,608,638. Assuming similar sales next year, the 1.7% increase in demand will provide $2,781,347 of additional revenue.   With the overall contribution margin of 34.2%, after direct costs this revenue will add $951,221 to the bottom line.
