Supply chain management (SCM) is a broadened management focus that considers the combined impact of all the companies involved in the production of goods and services, from suppliers to manufacturers to wholesalers to retailers to final consumers and beyond to disposal and recycling. This approach to managing production and logistics networks assumes all companies involved in the process of delivering goods to consumers are part of a network, pipeline, or supply chain. It encompasses everything required to satisfy customers and includes determining which products they will buy, how to produce them, and how to deliver them. The supply chain philosophy ensures that customers receive the right products at the right time at an acceptable price and at the desired location.
Increasing competition, complexity, and geographical scope in the business world have led to this broadened scope and continuing improvements in the capabilities of the personal computer have made the optimization of supply chain performance possible. Electronic mail and the Internet have revolutionized communication and data exchange, facilitating the necessary flow of information between the companies in the supply chain.
Companies that practice supply chain management report significant cost and cycle time reductions. For example, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. announced increases in inventory turns, decreases in out-of-stock occurrences, and a replenishment cycle that has moved from weeks to days to hours.
A fundamental premise of supply chain management is to view the network of facilities, processes, and people that procure raw materials, transform them into products, and ultimately distribute them to the customer as an integrated chain, rather than a group of separate, but somewhat interrelated, tasks. The importance of this integration cannot be overstated because the links of the chain are the key…...

...SPECIAL REPORT I N T E R N AT I O N A L B A N K I N G May 19th 2012 Retail renaissance SPECIAL REPORT INTERNATIONAL BANKING Retail renaissance The internet and mobile phones are at long last turning boring old retail banking into an exciting industry, says Jonathan Rosenthal IF YOUR BANK could start over, this is what it would be, trumpeted the marketing campaign for the launch in 1999 of Wingspan, an internet bank. The following year the bank was gone. In September 2000, a few months after the dotcom bubble burst, it was absorbed by its boring American bricks-and-mortar parent, Bank One (now part of JPMorgan). For all the high hopes that the internet would transform banking, most other internet banks launched around that time met with a similar fate. Citi f/i, an online bank started by Citigroup, was folded back into its parent in 2000. NetBank, an American pioneer of internet banking, soldiered on for longer than most but was shut down by banking regulators in 2007. On the other side of the Atlantic, Egg, Britain’s rst stand-alone internet bank, shook the market in 1999-2000 when it gained more than 2m customers within months of starting up. But within a few years it, too, had in e ect disappeared, its customers having been sold rst to Citigroup and then to Barclays and the Yorkshire Building Society. It was an ignominious end to a bold experiment in online banking that had caused palms to sweat in banking centres around the world. The promise of internet......

...1 C h a p t e r 1 I n f o r m a t i o n T o d a y LEARNING TRACK 1: HOW MUCH DOES IT MATTER? In May 2003, Nicholas Carr, an editor at Harvard Business Review, wrote an article titled “IT Doesn’t Matter,” which stirred significant debate in the business community. Carr’s argument in a nutshell is that because every firm can purchase IT in the marketplace, because any advantage obtained by one company can easily be copied by another company, and because IT is now a commodity based on standards (such as the Internet) that all companies can freely use, it is no longer a differentiating factor in organizational performance. Carr argues that no firm can use IT to achieve a strategic edge over its competitors any more than it could with electricity, telephones, or other infrastructure. Therefore, Carr concludes, firms should reduce spending on IT, follow rather than lead IT in their industry, reduce risks by preparing for computer outages and security breaches, and avoid deploying IT in new ways. Most management information system (MIS) experts disagree. As we discuss later in this chapter and subsequent chapters throughout the book, research demonstrates that there is considerable variation in firms’ ability to use IT effectively. Many highly adept firms continually obtain superior returns on their investment in IT, whereas less adept firms do not. Copying innovations of other firms can be devilishly difficult, with much being lost in the translation. There is only...

N Word

...The N-word dates back to the early 17th century, so why is it still such a big deal in literature, music and daily conversations? Joseph Henry Jackson once said, “Did you ever hear anyone say, ‘That work had better be banned because I might read it and it might be very damaging to me’?” Today s younger generation is far more comfortable with the N-word. It is often used in slang as a term of endearment or to show comfort and trust around someone. This often causes confusion in older generations and upsets them for the reason that they were raised in a time period where it was taught to use the N-word as a derogatory term to belittle someone’s humanity or social status in a community. The N-word, to some, is the ugliest racial slur created, and its purpose was to vilify African Americans. But to others, it is a reminder of the tumult their ancestors faced and how far they have come. In 1837, the “n-word” was already considered a huge slur when Hosea Easton wrote The Condition of Colored People of the United States: and the Prejudice Exercised Towards Them. He writes that the term would be perfectly harmless in theory, but instead, it is used with the intent to deliberately make African Americans feel inferior. The word has the same definition today, and that suggests that the word itself has not evolved at all from 1837 until now. Rather, people have evolved around the word and have become aware of the word’s vindictiveness....

...1. Economics is the study of how people choose to use resources. Resources include the time and talent people have available, the land, buildings, equipment, and other tools on hand, and the knowledge of how to combine them to create useful products and services. 2. Needs are limited. These include food, liquid, heat, shelter, clothing (material needs), self-esteem and being loved (psychological and emotional needs). Whereas Wants are unlimited. Be it a farmer in Africa, a manager in the UK or the richest individual in the world. There is always something which he or she wants more of. 3. Land is the economic resource encompassing natural resources found within an economy. This resource includes timber, land, fisheries, farms and other similar natural resources. Land is usually a limited resource for many economies. Although some natural resources, such as timber, food and animals, are renewable, the physical land is usually a fixed resource. Nations must carefully use their land resource by creating a mix of natural and industrial uses. Labor represents the human capital available to transform raw or national resources into consumer goods. Human capital includes all able-bodied individuals capable of working in the economy and providing various services to other individuals or businesses. This factor of production is a flexible resource as workers can be allocated to different areas of the economy for producing consumer goods or services. Human capital can also be......

Eployment Test - Papi N

...EMPLOYMENT TEST ASSIGNMENT PAPI-N Laura Reyes Rodríguez Sheridan College Institute of Technology And Advanced Learning November 21st, 2013 EMPLOYEMENT TEST ASSIGNMENT PAPI-N 1. A description of the test. The Personality and Preferences Inventory-Normative (PAPI-N) is a personality questionnaire designed to assess needs and behavior patterns relevant to the workplace. (Sanz et al., 2006) The PAPI-N was originally designed by Dr Max Kostick in the 1960’s, based on Murray’s need-press theory of psychogenic needs, which is one of the most influential theories in personality psychology (The British Psychological Society, 2006). According to Murray, our personalities are a reflection of behaviours controlled by needs. Some of those needs are temporary and change constantly, while other needs are deeply founded in our nature. Murray suggested that these psychogenic needs function on the unconscious level, but play a major role in our personality. (About.com, 2013). Dr. Kostick original idea was to create a tool that could be used by non-psychologist, and because of that he avoided the use of clinical terminology in the interpretation. PAPI was originally conceived as an ipsative test for use as a counselling and discussion tool. After several revisions, PAPI has extended its application and now there are two versions of the PAPI, the PAPI-I, which is an ipsative version, and the PAPI-N, which is a normative version. This is the suitable one for a...

...G e n e r a t i o n K i l l Evan Wright, a reporter at the ‘Rolling Stone Magazine’, is the writer of the article. In the article we follow a marine platoon during the first period of the Iraqi invasion, we follow them through first enemy contact and hear their own private thoughts, about why they think they’re here, and why they’ve chosen to come here. The article is part reflection and part reenactment of events. The article is very informally written and is merely based of why he thinks these soldiers went to war, and the forces behind their decision making. “(…)the grace of Camelot to the shame of Watergate(…)Big Lie is as central to American governance as taxation.” His writing has a negative tone each time he speaks of the American government. He’s consequently steering the text in a direction that make the soldier seem as ‘just another brick in the wall’. The article is not objective as it should be, to allow readers to form their own opinions on the subject, but instead is filled with lingual arguments that shape writers opinion on the matter; “(…)first generation of disposable children” “They see the invasion of Iraq as simply another campaign in a war without end(…)an acceleration of the trend started in the 1990’s with Somalia, Haiti, Kosovo: America(…) the world’s dirty harry” “white house blow job” “few would be shaken to discover that they might actually be leading a grab for oil” “It’s another Iraqi town, nameless to the marines racing down the main...

F&N M&a Analysis

...corporate value. The Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi’s takeover of Fraser and Neave (F&N), the largest region takeover, has illustrated the strategic corporate governance of both the acquirer and target firms, the reaction of their leaders and the evaluations of F&N’s worth. Furthermore, this transaction also had significant impacts on various key stakeholders – F&N’s Board of Directors, TCC Assets Ltd and Thai Beverage PCL, Overseas Union Enterprise (OUE), and other F&N’s shareholders such as Kirin Holdings Co. Nowadays, most corporate leadership consists of two main management bodies, which are the Board of Directors and the Board Executive Committee. In F&N, Board of Directors acts as a crucial internal governance to set strategic directions, to oversee management and most importantly, to protect the interests of its shareholders. During merger transactions, they are supposed to monitor the transactions so as to maximize its shareholders’ wealth. In October 2012, F&N directors rejected Mr Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi's takeover offer because the offer price of $8.88 per share (which valued F&N at S$7.2bn) is at the low end of the range of the estimated market value of between $8.30 and $11.22 (Yap, 2012). F&N’s advisor, JP Morgan Chase also described the offer from Mr. Charoen as ‘not compelling’ (Yap, 2012). This incidence illustrates how F&N Board took the responsibility to review the offer carefully and provided its......

In N Out

...Inside the Marketing Strategy of the In-N-Out Burger Chain By: Nichole Fitzhugh Ted Watterson Cathy Nguyen Chris Nguyen Kieu Le California State University, San Marcos Marketing 302 Professor George Sharghi May 5, 2011 Introduction While cruising the freeway along the Sothern California coastline, it is becoming increasing possible to spot a giant sign with a yellow boomerang; this brightly illuminated boomerang is most associated with the infamous restaurant In-N-Out. It was founded by Harry and Esther Snyder in 1948, and established in Baldwin Park, California. Since then, the restaurant has continued to satisfy and entice customers from all over, including the East, West, North, and South coasts. Its popularity stems from its simple yet appetizing menu, which consists of three types of burgers: hamburger, cheeseburger, and the Double-Double. They also carry fresh cut fries, and three varieties of drinks, including milk, shakes, and sodas. In-N-Out’s arguably most unique item is its “spread,” also referred to as its special sauce. The Businessweek article, In-N-Out Burger’s Marketing Magic, outlines the restaurant’s marketing strategies. In-N-Out does not advertise on television, but relies on advertising through their billboards, bumper stickers, t-shirts, and satisfied fans. The yellow boomerang is wielded as an arrow to point in the direction of their restaurant. However, their most successful marketing...

I’ve done a lot of business with Orleans Elevator in Bloomington over the years, but just wonder how long this will continue. I have much invested in my manufacturing plant located right next to their plant, but now that United Technologies [the parent company of Orleans] is all into this FreeMarkets Internet purchasing system, I just wonder how long they are going to be interested in keeping me in the supply chain loop. It’s been a good business over the past few years. I was in the right place at the right time when Orleans got into just-in-time and lean manufacturing in the late 1980s. Initially I was just making the control panels for the elevators. It was interesting to walk into a new building, get on the elevator, and see my company’s handiwork in that beautiful stainless steel panel that houses the buttons for the floors on the building. I could take a lot of pride in the craftsmanship even though it was largely a technology thing. That new numerically controlled machine tool that I purchased in 1985 made making the holes in those custom panels easy. We are still making beautiful panels. Since that time, my company has gotten a lot of other business from Orleans. We now make all kinds of special......
