Argument 170
Arg 170 hire Appian Roadways to construct the roads-o

The following appeared in a memo from the vice president of a company that builds shopping malls around the country.

The surface of a section of Route 101, paved just two years ago by Good Intentions Roadways, is now badly cracked with a number of dangerous potholes. In another part of the state, a section of Route 40, paved by Appian Roadways more than four years ago, is still in good condition. In a demonstration of their continuing commitment to quality, Appian Roadways recently purchased state-of-the-art paving machinery and hired a new quality-control manager. Therefore, I recommend hiring Appian Roadways to construct the access roads for all our new shopping malls. I predict that our Appian access roads will not have to be repaired for at least four years.

Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the recommendation is likely to have the predicted result. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the recommendation.


G1: The surface of a section of Route 101, paved just two years ago by Good Intentions Roadways, is now badly cracked with a number of dangerous potholes.

G2: In another part of the state, a section of Route 40, paved by Appian Roadways more than four years ago, is still in good condition.

G3: In a demonstration of their continuing commitment to quality, Appian Roadways recently purchased state-of-the-art paving machinery and hired a new quality-control manager.

C1: Therefore, I recommend hiring Appian Roadways to construct the access roads for all our new shopping malls.I predict that our Appian access roads will not have to be repaired for at least four years.


A1 (G1, C1): The damage on Route 101 necessarily means that GI is not competent for building access roads.

A2 (G2, C1): The good condition of Route 40 implies that AR's other work will need no repair for 4 years.

A3 (G3, C1): The investment in new machinery and manager can improve the quality.

A4 (C1): AR is more favourable than GI in other aspects such as price and speed.


the reason why Route 101 was badly cracked
- maybe the route was more heavily used
- perhaps the overweight trucks were allowed to use the route due to the incompetent management and law enforcement agent
- maybe the potholes were caused by some accidents that are unrelated to the construction company

the reason why Route 40 was in good conditions for more than 4 years
- maybe the road was less heavily used due to the poor economy in the area
- maybe the the toll for the route was more expensive and therefore fewer vehicles used the route
- perhaps the route was better maintained with more money spent

whether the new paving machinery and the new manager could help improve the quality of the road
- maybe the new machinery was more energy efficient but woule not make the road more robust
- perhaps the new machinery could add to the cost of the projects
- maybe the new manager was not as competent as the old one and are better paid (more costly)

whether Appian Roadways has better expertise in building access roads than Good Intentions
- maybe Good Intentions are more experienced in building access roads
- perhaps the staff of GI are better trained to build access roads
