Mr. Johnson developed a detailed two-year strategic growth plan for an ALCOA’s local plastic beverage closure (PBC) manufacturer for ALCOA’s senior management.  This plan forecasted costs and benefits of a $3 million plant expansion and included the profitability, payback time, and rate of return of the expansion.  Mr. Johnson’s plan included  a 4-variable sensitivity analysis which included the effects of changes in PBC sales price, changes in the expansion cost, changes in the manufacturing cost, and changes in the number of closures produced. Mr. Johnson’s plan showed that the expansion would have a payback time of 3+ years with a 38% annual rate of return on investment (ROI).
