Suppose that GLC earns a $2,000 profit each time a person buys a car. We want to determine how the expected profit earned from a customer depends on the quality of GLC’s cars. We assume a typical customer will purchase 10 cars during her lifetime. She will purchase a car now (year 1) and then purchase a car every five yearsĂ˘â‚¬â€ťduring year 6, year 11, and so on. For simplicity, we assume that Hundo is GLC’s only competitor. We also assume that if the consumer is satisfied with the car she purchases, she will buy her next car from the same company, but if she is not satisfied, she will buy her next car from the other company. Hundo produces cars that satisfy 80% of its customers. Currently, GLC produces cars that also satisfy 80% of its customers. Consider a customer whose first car is a GLC car. If profits are discounted at 10% annually, use simulation to estimate the mean value of this customer to GLC. Round your answers to the nearest dollar.
Also estimate the mean value of a customer to GLC if it can raise its customer satisfaction rating to 85%, to 90%, or to 95%. You can interpret the satisfaction value as the probability that a customer will not switch companies.
