Ghidul Michelin

Pentru inceput putina istorie

Michelin a publicat prima editie a a cestui ghid in 1900. Ghidul era menit sa vina in ajutorul automobilistilor care calatoreau in Franta. Continea informatii despre locurile de cazare, service-uri auto, furnizori de combustibil si desigur locuri unde se poate lua masa De la prima lansare si pana in 1920 acest ghid se distribuia in mod gratuit, dar apoi fratii Michelin au decis sa ceara bani pentru cumpararea acestui ghid - din dorinta, spuneau ei, de a castiga credibilitate. Notarea restaurantelor cu stele se face de la inceputul anilor '30. Initial ghidul avea culoare albastra, dar din 1931 si pana in prezent acesta are culoare rosie. La inceput ghidul era doar pentru Franta, dar apoi treptat au fost redactate astfel de carti si pentru alte tari europene. Anul trecut ghidul Michelin a fost editat pentru 11 tari europene, dar si in tari din Asia ori America. Ghiduri Michelin se publica separat si pentru marile orase cum ar fi Paris, Londra, Tokyo, New York, Las Vegas si altele. Orasul care are cele mai multe stele Michelin acordate restaurantelor este Tokyo. Restaurantele din capitala Japoneza totalizand peste 200 de stele. Tara cu cele mai multe restaurante de trei stele Michelin ramane insa Franta – avand 26 din totalul celor 81 de restaurante cu trei stele Michelin din lume. Aceasta distinctie acordandu-se extrem de rar.

Cum se acorda stelele si ce inseamna ele?

Semnificatia acordata stelelor este urmatoarea : Obiecticele marcate cu trei stele inseamna „merita sa calatoresti pana la ele”, cele cu doua stele - „merita sa ocolesti pentru a ajunge la ele", iar cele cu o stea sunt considerate „interesante". In ghid mai sunt mentionate si alte restaurante care nu au nicio stea, insa simpla mentionare in acest ghid reprezinta deja o distinctie cu care restaurantele se mandresc foarte tare. Mai exista si…...

My Paper

...Tire Companies & Rubber Fabian D. Benson Instructor:  Sharif Muhammad BUS620: Managerial Marketing 21 May 2012 Michelin North America is the world’s number one seller in commercial and heavy truck tires. Michelin North America has been around (in America) since 1907. It was founded in 1888 by Andre and Edouard Michelin brothers from France. Throughout the years this company has been in some stiff competition; like all companies go through that produce a certain product that is vital to the needs of companies, businesses, and individual needs. The competition has been Firestone, Bridgestone, and Goodyear. Although Michelin tires are by far the better product in the tire business out of the three brands, now that the economy is at one of the worse points ever; individuals are looking for the least expensive brand and product. When you have the best product it normally means you have the best technology, equipment to make the product, masterminds behind the ideas, and best goods and services. Along with being the best there is a high cost. Over the years Michelins tire prices have gone up with the cost of rubber. There are two types of rubber that Michelin uses: 1) Natural Rubber and 2) Synthetic Rubber. Synthetic Rubber is the cheapest rubber and the natural rubber is the most expensive. Rubber is a material from latex sap trees that is vulcanized and used in various products; it is the most important piece that goes into a tire. When looking at......

Some of Michelin's internal strength is that at the present they have three lines of production to follow. They produce the Michelin guide, and road maps, although their main line of production is their tyres .So the fact that Michelin is in more than one line of production gives them the competitive edge over their competitors. Michelin is committed to safety and is committed to keeping up with research and development in all their production and......

Rhetorical Analysis

...William Woosley The Wizarding World of Michelin The Michelin Man, with a wave of his hand, brings the red car to a jolting halt. Standing mere inches in front of the just-stopped vehicle, we see a line of animals staring in awe and fascination at what just transpired. If not for the Michelin Man and his brand new HydroEdge Tires, our furry friends would have been goners. The HydroEdge, the advertisement brags, stops up to fourteen feet shorter in the rain, lasts up to 33,000 miles, and is number one in fuel efficiency; all seemingly great qualities to have in a tire. Looking more closely at the picture accompanying the ad we see a dreary selection of colors bringing life to the stylized cartoon world. A more in-depth examination of the near-road kill reveals a group of semi-anthropomorphic life forms that more closely resemble characters out of a Disney or Harry Potter movie than they do anything in the wild. Perhaps of most interest is the Michelin Man himself, and what exactly he is doing to the automobile to get it to stop in time. Considering the elements here, we can draw a fair conclusion that Michelin is not only advertising a great new set of tires, but voicing their firm support for all things magic and occult. Having been printed in a recent June issue of Sports Illustrated, one is left to wonder the audience of this particular advertisement. The picture has more the look of a Pixar movie poster than anything aimed at selling tires to adults. With a......

Organization Paper

...Failure of Michelin Tires There is an overlooked reason why many innovations fail. Five people started Michelin Tires Corporation in the city of New York. These people consisted of the vice president of sales, an executive vice president, a secretary, a warehouse supervisor and a hired sales representative. In 1907, they purchased the Rubber Company in Milton, New York. In the 1990’s Michelin came with a new type of tire with sensors and had an internal hard wheel that could run good for 125 miles after the puncture in the tire. A light on the dashboard would alert the driver of the puncture of the tire. This was supposed to make customers lives easier and safer. This would also make Michelin a huge amount of money. Michelin built a powerful friendship with Goodyear to take advantage of 40% of tire market with the product. Michelin signed up Mercedes to place the tire on new cars and many other manufactures followed including Honda and Audi. When 2007 came around the product failed and Michelin had to disregard it. Innovation and creativity was not designed together well. The company had neglected to oversee the garages that repair punctured tires and did get them to come on board with them. Michelin did not realize that the garages would need new highly purchased equipment, which they did not have the space or money for this big adventure. By failing to see this product through the eyes of the customer this was a big lost for Michelin. Michelin later also......

Michelin Case

...Michelin II – The treatment of rebates* Massimo Motta 1 European University Institute, Florence, and Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona 27 November 2006 Forthcoming in a book on EU competition case studies, edited by Bruce Lyons (Cambridge U.P.). The author has not been involved in this case, and his information about the case was only and exclusively drawn from public sources, such as the Commission Decision and the Court of First Instance’s Judgment. I am very grateful to Chiara Fumagalli and Liliane Karlinger for their comments on a previous draft. 1 * 1 1. Introduction In 2001, the European Commission found that the French firm Michelin had – via its various types of rebates - abused its dominant position in the French markets for new replacement tyres and retreaded tyres for heavy vehicles, and imposed a fine of EUR 19.76 million to Michelin. 2 Two years later, the Court of First Instance upheld the Commission’s Decision in its entirety. 3 In many respects, this case is exemplary of the strict formalistic approach followed in abuse of dominance cases by the European Commission and the Community Courts, which severely limit the possibility of dominant firms to resort to certain business practices, such as exclusive dealing, rebates, tying. Indeed, the EU case law has so far disregarded the actual effects of the allegedly abusive practices (the Commission does not need to prove that exclusionary effects have indeed taken place, nor does it need to show......

Michelin in China

...Michelin Overview. As a creator of modern day tyre, Michelin as a premium tyre brand has influenced the today’s world through innovation. Whether it be from developing materials for the space shuttle or shaping the way the globe moves through creation of modern day radial tyre, as a market leader Michelin has changed the world through leading the market with strong focus on the future. Market entry to China in 1989 was a right strategic move as predictions on market growth realized. Car and vehicle production increased significantly from 2002 in parallel with the demand of China’s emerging middle class. China’s tyre industry is growing exponentially in contrast to flattening US and European market, with expectation to be the biggest market in the next decade. With high growth and market potential Michelin are unable to succeed in the developing market as well as surrendered their leading market position in European and US market. Several factors can be attribute to unsuccessful market capitalization, however main one is inability to change with the market needs, and the idea that the western successful strategy can be duplicated with same results in Chinese market. Global Strategy Create synergy between Chinese and European market by divesting focus away from complex product portfolio and benefit from the economies of scales that can be produced in China. A European central office with focus on R&D can ensure competence to European customers, whilst simplifying......

In terms of industrial performance, it was among Michelin’s worst performing factories worldwide, as evidenced by its inferior products, high rejection rate, and alarmingly poor safety record relative to international standards. Turning the factory around and improving its industrial performance had become the mandate for successive plant managers. Ballarin felt that morale and disciplinary problems among Shanghai Michelin Warrior’s Chinese employees, especially the blue-collar workers, resulted from their lack of trust in the company’s management team. Making matters worse, the plant lacked a cohesive “leadership team” - a team of both foreign and Chinese managers with sufficient leadership capabilities to help him move forward. In addition, Michelin headquarters was pressing Ballarin to implement the Management System of Daily Production (MDP), designed to help improve the factory’s performance. Although Ballarin had extensive experience turning around and downsizing factories, he was facing unfamiliar challenges, including employees who spoke a......

...the perspective of 5 brands in this paper. Automobile Tire Category - Michelin Michelin has the second market share in Turkey in the automobile tire category after Brisa. Michelin uses its brand elements effectively. By using the slogan "A better way forward" and consistently featuring its character, Bibendum the Michelin man, Michelin succeeds getting known as one of the highest quality tires. Bibendum could also be seen in its navy logo, where navy stands for trust, control and success. As a comparison based on the brand elements to its biggest rivals, Bridgestone and Lassa, although Michelin's slogan emphasizes better quality, both Bridgestone and Lassa focus on safety. Another point is that neither Bridgestone nor Lassa have a character, and they tend to use black and red as the color of their logos, which represent strength and energy. Building brand equity means succeeding at being memorable, meaningful, and likeable. Michelin has achieved being memorable, meaningful, and likeable at the same time by creating Bibendum and making him a hero in challenging weather conditions. It becomes easier to recognize end recall the brand by the help of Bibendum. Although Michelin cannot achieve being the top-of-mind, it is possible to say that Michelin has a high brand awareness. Since Michelin achieved to be confirmed prior exposure to the brand when it is given as a cue, its brand recognition is high. Michelin achieved this by increasing familiarity by consistently and......

In order to gain a competitive advantage in the present market, restaurants should have to offer meal having a good value in fairness with the ambience or place.
