PRITCHARD SOAP COMPANY
Samantha (Sam) Calderon is manager of a project that will completely alter the method of
adding perfume to Pritchard Soaps Queen Elizabeth gift soap line. The new process will
greatly extend the number of available scents and should result in a significant increase in
sales. The project had been proceeding reasonably well, but fell several weeks behind when
the perfume supplier, the Stephen Marcus Parfumissary, was unable to meet its delivery
deadline because of a wildcat strike.
Under normal circumstances this would not have caused problems, but the project had been
subject to a particularly long evaluation study and now was in danger of not being ready for the
holiday season. The major scheduling problem concerned Pritchards toxicity lab. Kyle Lee, lab
manager, had been most cooperative in scheduling the Queen Elizabeth perfumes for toxicity
testing. He had gone out of his way to rearrange his own schedule to accommodate Sams
project. Because of the strike at Marcus, however, Sam cannot have the perfumes ready for
test as scheduled, and the new test date Lee has given Sam will not allow her to make the new
line available by the holidays. Sam suspects that the project might not have been approved if
senior management had known that they would miss this years holiday season.
