How many cars are there in the United States?

5 Answers

Depends if you count the ones that are for sale

can you tell me what was the case study?

Method 1 - Take population of the US, get data for economic classes and multiply by % owning cars in each class (or estimate this data). These are cards on road. Now we add this to cars in dealerships and factories - Get car sales data for the year, divide by 12 and add this to the previous estimation of on road cars (this is making a broad assumption that there is a months worth of inventory lying around) Less

You don't need to pay $200k and get an MBA to learn how to do a case study. Many are prepared just through their professional experiences. Some prepare through online research on websites like Glass Door. Regardless, sounds like your condescending attitude and unwillingness to gain new skills in a short period of time eliminated your candidacy. For everyone else: the case study is doable. I didn't have much clue on how to attack this problem but I ran my answers against some fellow consultant and supply chain friends. A couple gave me good advice and I eventually landed a planning role. Good luck to all. Less

Can you share more about the case study?

I did not make enough assumptions. I have never done a case study for an interview before. Sorry I didn't get an MBA and pay 200k+ to learn how to do case studies. Less

Assuming we know we will sell 1M units in the first month, and there's no issue with production and it can be produced momentarily, how many units will I produce? How would I take inventory into account?

1 Answers

We will produce units to account for the yield loss/quality loss of the line. If 10% of the devices/products are determined unfit at final testing, we need to give a demand signal for 1.1M units. Less
