...GRADUATE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT MASTER IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CASE ANALYSIS December 10, 2006 ABC STEEL COMPANY Robert Cruz, newly appointed Shop Manager of ABC Steel Company, was making his way through the plant back to his office. He had just reviewed the company’s most recent operating statistics with his boss, Rudyard de los Santos, Operations Manager. The statistics were shocking: ABC Company’s production backlog had reached such proportions that top management decided not to accept any further business. The company was paying penalties of P50, 000.00 a day due to non-fulfillment of contract delivery dates. ABC Company was one of the country’s largest producers of fabricated steel products. The company fabricated and installed storage tanks, mine and cane car bodies, dump bodies, boats and many types of structural steel. As shown in the organization chart (Exhibit 1), fabrication and installation activities were organized as independent activities. Robert Cruz had recently been promoted from Quality Control Supervisor to Shop Manager (see Exhibit 1). Twenty-nine years old, Robert had worked for ABC Company for the past 2 years. He had previously worked as a sheet metal worker and as an instructor at a United States naval base in Subic. Robert held an engineering degree from a local university. Plagued by an ever-increasing production backlog, ABC Company had placed Robert in charge of all shop operations. There were 200 workers in the shop......

...a Giant Corporation: The Case of Tata Steel D V R Seshadri and Arabinda Tripathy A KEY WORDS Reinvention Change Management Turnaround Tata Steel Liberalization Response to Globalization t the meeting of the senior management of Tata Steel to celebrate the spectacular performance of the company, Mr. B Muthuraman, the Managing Director, recalled with satisfaction the remarkable strides that the company had made from the difficult days in the early nineties, when the company, used to a protected environment, was suddenly thrown open to global competition, consequent to the liberalization of the Indian economy. The company had closed the year with a record profit of Rs. 34.74 billion. A series of initiatives launched by the company over the last 15 years had culminated in these stellar results although there were many challenges at every step. At each stage in its journey, the company did what needed to be done. In retrospect, however, the various initiatives launched by the company over the years now appeared to fit into a coherent picture. The company had made steady progress over the years and had now achieved a pre-eminent status in the Indian steel industry. It had become one of the lowest cost steel producers in the world five years ago, a distinction that it had continued to maintain. All key performance indicators indicated that the company was in the pink of health (Table 1). Driven by a huge corporate ambition, the company was set to expand its footprint in......

Us Steel

... The United States Steel Corporation more commonly known as U.S. Steel is an integrated steel producer with major production operations in the United States, Canada, and Central Europe. The company was the world's 13th largest steel producer in 2010. It was renamed USX Corporation in 1986 and back to United States Steel Corporation in 2001 when the shareholders of USX spun off the oil & gas business of Marathon Oil and the steel business of U. S. Steel to shareholders. In 2001 it was still the largest domestically owned integrated steel producer in the United States, although it produced only slightly more steel than it did in 1902, after significant downsizing in the 1980s. U.S. Steel is a former Dow Jones Industrial Average component, listed from April 1, 1901 to May 3, 1991. It was removed under its USX Corporation name with Navistar International and Primerica. Formation J. P. Morgan and the attorney Elbert H. Gary founded U.S. Steel in 1901 (incorporated on February 25) by combining Andrew Carnegie's Carnegie Steel Company with Gary's Federal Steel Company and William Henry "Judge" Moore's National Steel Company for $492 million ($13.58 billion today). It was capitalized at $1.4 billion ($38.63 billion today), making it the world's first billion-dollar corporation. At one time, U.S. Steel was the largest steel producer and largest corporation in the world. In 1907 it bought its largest competitor, the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company, which was......

...Gupta, DVR Seshadri, and James A Narus Executive Summary KEY WORDS Tata Steel Customer Value Management (CVM) Business Markets Commoditization Spiral Value Creation/Sharing Customer Retention Customer Value Management (CVM) has emerged as an important vehicle for customer retention in business markets. Supplier firms under increasing pressure from relentless competitive forces are seeking to retain and grow the share of business from profitable existing customers as a means of finding a way out of downward spiralling price pressures. While a lot has been written in academics about the importance of CVM, several gaps remain on understanding how a large company actually undertakes this journey. Crafting competitive value chains and focusing on streams of competition are also emerging as important agenda for supplier firms since, increasingly, the end customer is no longer willing to pay for inefficiencies in the value chains. In this context, the challenge for a supplier firm in business markets is no longer restricted to getting its own operations in order, but, additionally, it must ensure that multiple interfaces that exist across the entire value chain all the way until the end customer are streamlined so that the value chain is free of value drains and every meaningful opportunity to create value is exploited. In this paper, the authors present the experiences of the India-based Tata Steel in implementing CVM across 25 select customers. This has enabled it to......

...at the conclusion. Keywords: Ship breaking, ship dismantling, industrial safety, safety hazards, environmental hazards. 1. INTRODUCTION Ship recycling is the process of dismantling old ship to recover steel scrap and other materials. This industry had begun in Bangladesh in 1960, when a cargo vessel named M D Alpine of Greek was affected by violent storm and beached near sea shore of Fauzdarhat at Chittagong. The ship had to remain there for a long time. In 1965, the vessel was scrapped by Chittagong Steel House. In 1974, Al Abbas, a salvaged Pakistan Navy vessel, which was sunk during liberation war, was scrapped by Karnafully Metal Works and since then commercial shipbreaking began in Bangladesh. Finally in the year 1984, Bangladesh appears as a major ship recycling nation in the world [1]. Until 1960s, ship breaking/recycling activity was considered as a highly mechanized operation that was concentrated in industrialized countries- mainly USA, UK, Germany and Italy. The UK was accounted for 50% of the industry-Scotland ran the largest ship breaking operation in the world. During the 1960s and 70s, ship breaking activities migrated to semiindustrialized countries like Spain, Turkey and Taiwan, mainly for the availability of cheap labour and the existence of re- rolling steel market [2]. But from early 1980s, ship breaking is no more costeffective in those countries and so to maximize profits ship owner’s sent their vessels to the scrap yards of India, China, Pakistan,......

Global Steel Company

...Running head: Global Steel Company Global Steel Company Christopher Vera Park University 2nd Assignment Global Steel Company Global Steel is a steel company involved in the production and sale of steel, either on a semi-finished or value-added basis. Global Steel Company represented in this methodology represents one of a diverse group of issuers differentiated by scale, market position and business model. The industry is further differentiated by regional characteristics which can influence market conditions and by the dramatic growth seen in emerging markets such as China and India. These distinguishing characteristics in combination with whether exposure is to emerging or developed country market risk can contribute to greater rating disparity than quantitative measurements might imply. The market for steel producers in the United States is different from other markets as the three leading steel producers, ArcelorMittal, ThyssenKrupp and Tata (Corus) enjoy substantial market share for some important product grades in a market place with somewhat higher consolidation than elsewhere. In addition this producer is also the major U.S. steel distribution company. Global Steel needs to implement the following: 1. Invest in massive advertising 2. Create a marketing plan 3. Promote their product to new markets 4. Find a wider range of potential customers 5. Offer discounts on big orders to offset the higher price 6. Improve...

...administrative situation. Steel Works, Inc. Gary Lemming sat in his new corner office and tapped his pencil on the desk. Lemming had just been named head of Steel Works, Inc.’s new centralized logistics group. After a decade of experience implementing MRP (Materials Requirements Planning) systems throughout the company’s manufacturing facilities, Lemming was confident he could handle the job. Until this morning. “Our inventory levels are ridiculous!” barked Jean Du Blanc, the company’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our customer service is the worst in the industry, and getting worse,” grumbled Kirk Callow, the CEO. Lemming started to explain, “You see, I’ve already set up a team to look at all of that. . .” But before he could finish, Callow stood up. “Sales are down 30% and expenses are up 25%. Our best customers are calling me and telling me they’re going to our competitors, and at the rate we’re losing market share we won’t be in business in a year. I don’t want to hear about teams, I want you back in here in a week telling me how you’re going to fix this thing.” Lemming looked over the list of people he’d asked to meet with him this week. He shook his head–– how do I lower expenses and improve performance? How will I ever find the right answer? Copyright © 1996 Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

...Renz Erick R. Delgado BSCE 4 200810163 “STEEL” BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE MATERIAL Steel is an alloy that consists mostly of iron and has carbon content between 0.2% and 2.1% by weight, depending on the grade. It also consists of small quantities such as manganese, chromium, nickel, molybdenum, copper, tungsten, cobalt, or silicon. It is generally hard, strong, durable, malleable alloy and depending on the desired alloy properties, the constituents in steel vary. The density of steel varies based on the alloying constituents, but usually ranges between 7,750 and 8,050 kg/m3 (484 and 503 lb/cu ft), or 7.75 and 8.05 g/cm3 (4.48 and 4.65 oz/cu in). Carbon is the most common alloying material for iron, but various other alloying elements are used, such as manganese, chromium, vanadium, and tungsten. Carbon and other elements act as a hardening agent, preventing dislocations in the iron atom crystal lattice from sliding past one another. Varying the amount of alloying elements and the form of their presence in the steel (solute elements, precipitated phase) controls qualities such as the hardness, ductility, and tensile strength of the resulting steel. Steel with increased carbon content can be made harder and stronger than iron, but such steel is also less ductile than iron. Though steel had been produced by various inefficient methods long before the Renaissance, its use became more common after more-efficient production methods were......

The file photo shows workers busy at Bangladesh Steel Re-rolling Mills that produces high-grade steel. Shakhawat Hossain The country’s steel industry has been getting continuous investment boom due to steady demands. Steel manufacturers see no major negative impact on their industry as they believe the country’s economy will keep its impressive growth despite the global financial recession. They said the country with nearly six per cent growth in the last three years provides enough clues to consume higher production of mild steel rod to be generated by the big players with their proposed new investments. ‘The rod industry will not face major problem due to growing investment in the sector,’ said Bangladesh Steel Re-rolling Mills chairman Ali Hossain Akbar Ali. ‘Chance is slim even for the small players to become sick as the growing consumption rate of steel will remain in the coming years despite global financial recession,’ he told New Age. BSRM, producer of high-grade steel, makes up more than 25 per cent of the total demand. It is now on trial production in its newly installed 3,00,000-tonne plant, set up at a cost of over Tk 3.5......
