AbstractThe focal point of this report is a closer look at the framing of a serious problem for the staff and employees of Perrigo, a pharmaceutical company, which is undergoing some drastic changes. These changes are due to the illegal manufacturing of methamphetamines and affect not only Perrigo but almost all of the industry as well. Methamphetamines are manufactured with the use of pseudoephedrine which is a major active ingredient found in several pharmaceutical products. This paper will present a clear and concise problem statement and three alternative solutions. We will analyze these solutions and choose one using the appropriate decision-making tools. A plan to implement the chosen solution will be presented which will include an evaluation of resources to be used.
