For this discussion forum, read the Andrew-Carter, Inc. case study at the end of Chapter 13 in the Heizer, Render, & Munson (2017, pp. 559-560) textbook and address the two discussion questions. For case discussion question 1, empirically substantiate your argument. Additionally, address ethical considerations associated with closing a plant. This discussion board input will take more time than previous posts, so please start early. 

A substantive initial post addresses all the key topic elements using approximately 200-300 words. Incorporate into your discussion commentary at least three recent scholarly references and citation support according to proper CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA (Links to an external site.)standards.

I have attached an image of the case study and the discussion questions.
