Kaplan Business School Pty Ltd ABN 86 098 181 947 is a registered higher education provider CRICOS Provider Code 02426B Current Case Scenario You are a family of two adults (Kelly & Jeff). You have two children (Will aged 7 & Lexie aged 12), two cars and a dog (Buddy). Jeff recently secured a new position as a Marketing Director interstate and now needs to move the family to Perth. Currently, the family live in a two bedroom rental apartment in Maroochydore, on the Sunshine Coast, Qld. The relocation will be to a rented four bedroom suburban house in Perth (already secured). Jeff starts his new job on 5 February, 2019 and they need to vacate their current property on 20th January, 2019. The new rental in Perth commences on 27th January, 2019. Notes: ? Jeff & Kelly have no relatives living on the Sunshine Coast. ? The cost of the move is the responsibility of Kelly & Jeff. The budget is $15,000 (max.) ? The Perth School term commences Wednesday 31st January and you must be there on time . Project Update 1. Australia has been hit by the worst flu epidemic in years. Unfortunately, Kelly has become ill and cannot undertake any assigned tasks. Her doctor has ordered bed rest for two weeks (commencing 15th January). 2. The Removalist has advised that the truck carrying Jeff & Kelly’s belongings has broken down in South Australia, in a remote area near the border of Western Australia, and it will take 3 days for the needed repairs to be made; thereby delaying the arrival of the furniture in Perth until 30th January. 3. Because of the Australia Day celebrations in Perth, flights into Perth are limited, and there is little available accommodation. (Note: any accommodation planned, must be vacated by 27 January, 2019). Solve for these variances.
