However if the robots are purchased from Chen Inc. SY Telc can use the released productive resources to generate additional income of $300000.(b) Describe the qualitative factors that might affect the decision to purchase the robots from an outside supplier.E9-11Twyla Enterprises uses a computer to handle its sales invoices.
