Otc Marketing Simulation Report

...Market Simulation Report #2 Group – 05: Byung-Joo Cho Tyler Standing Huicun Ning Kai Yuan Zheng Introduction The introduction of B&B Health’s new product, Besthelp Cough and Cold, poses many threats to the sales of Allround’s Cold Liquid product. Up until now, Allround has had strong sales in the cold segment, controlling 21.4% of the segment before the Besthelp release. Upon the release of the new Besthelp product, the marketers of Allround projects that Allround’s market share in the cold segment will drop if nothing is done in response. The marketing team at Allround suggest they respond by releasing a new product, however, it is also noted that if Allround does release a new product, they can experience 5-15% of cannibalization from their current customers. In order for Allround’s marketing team to make the correct decision, we must analyze the cost of cannibalization and the net income that will be gained from the new cough syrup product. Projected: Not introducing new product after Besthelp C&C It is projected that if Allround does nothing in response to the Besthelp C&C release, their market share of the cold segment will drop from 21.40% to 18.4%. The following is the projected sales and income numbers for this drop. | Before Besthelp | After Besthelp | % change | Sales | 214.3 | 184.0 | -14.14% | Net Income | 50.7 | 32.0 | -36.88% | Profit Margin | 23.66% | 17.37% | -26.59% | With no response to the Besthelp C&C release,......

Report for the Eagles Ltd Board of Directors

...Introduction A report for the Eagles Ltd board of directors has been prepared by external consultant. In this report ratio analyses have been used to comment on the performance of the business over two year period (2008 and 2009). Profitability, Liquidity, Efficiency and Gearing ratios have been calculated (See Appendix) and used to reveal and explain the situation in the company. Firstly the importance of each kind of financial ratios is explained. Then each ratio is analysed according to provided information (income statement and balance sheet). Finally recommendation for further actions for Eagles Ltd is given. Limitations • If used incorrectly ratios can be useless and misleading (Elliott, B., and Elliott, J., 2005). • Ratios can highlight the problems that company has, but they can’t explain the reasons of these problems (Atrilll and McLaney, 2008). • Not all ratios are useful to all users. • In this particular case the field in which business operates is unknown. • The cash flow statement wasn’t available to compare money investments and actions taken each year. Profitability ratios Khan and Jain (2007) state that management of the company is interested in operating efficiency and owners expect reasonable returns of their invested funds. Income is crucial for survival and development of any business. (Atrill and McLaney, 2008) Profitability ratios 2008 2009 ROCE 49.3% 29.3% Net profit margin 28.7% 19.2% Gross profit margin 46.3% 41.4% ROCE (return......

International Trade Simulation and Report

...International Trade Simulation and Report Taruh Cravens, Melody Jones, Geneva George-Williams, Ruby Morgan, Nicole Southerland ECO/212 Blake Bennett International Trade Simulation and Report This paper is a team correlation on the knowledge gained from our course of study and how the concepts are applied, how international trade affects the U.S, economy, and addresses the four key factors from our weekly reading assignments that are shown in the stimulation. The simulation identified Rodamia’s bordering countries provide an opportunity for international trade and investments that could greatly benefit Rodamia. International trade with other countries would give consumers more choices in price and quality of goods. The domestic producers would increase production to meet market demands in other countries, producing more capital for investing in new avenues. The interaction of trade between the countries will make the countries more vibrant and wealthier. Limitations of international trade are placed in the form of tariffs, quotas, and regulations. These limitations offer protection in certain circumstances but can have negative if used to retaliate for reasons such as political differences (Colander, 2004). The simulation emphasized four key points from the team’s weekly reading assignments, including comparative advantage, the principle of increasing marginal opportunity, the protection possibility curve, and limitations on international......

Our turns appeared to be very scattered due to an communication obstacle, but we agreed we had to make a change in our entire strategy when we hit $3,970 in debt. Cohesively, we decided to change our target market, which led to promotional, pricing, product and placement changes as well. These alterations benefitted our team, since we began to bring in profit. Throughout this entire process, we learned many lessons and if we were to do this simulation over, both of us would approach our strategy differently. In this report, our overall result will be evaluated, the lessons we learnt along the way and how we applied marketing knowledge to our turns will be discussed, along with other factors that influenced our team along the way. Overall Result According to the leader board metric, we sold 310 units throughout the game, and earned a total of $15,220.06. Our changes benefitted our overall result, because in the end we......

Littlefield Simulation Report

...Initial operations strategy Prior to the commencement of the simulation, we examined the 50 days of historical data to glean as much information as we could about the operations. We performed some analysis in Excel and created a dashboard to illustrate various data. Specifically, we regressed the prior 50 days of jobs accepted to forecast demand over the next 2 - 3 months within a 95% confidence interval. The yellow and grey lines represent the maximum and minimum variability, respectively, based on two standard deviations (95%). Exhibit 1: Forecasted and actual demand by Day 50 and Day 270 Our two primary goals at the beginning of the simulation were as follows: 1) Eliminate bottlenecks and increase capacity in order to meet forecasted demand 2) Decrease lead time to 0.25 days in order to satisfy Contract 2 and maximize revenue In order to achieve these goals, we would need to know the capacity and throughput time of the entire system. We used the time required by each machine to process a lot to calculate capacity per station and then capacity of the entire production line (380 kits/day or 6 orders/day). In Exhibit 2 we can observe that the capacity of the production line is given by the station that produces the least number of units per day. Exhibit 2: Capacity of the production line The Decisions We decided to work with the maximum variability of demand because there was a penalty for late jobs and because there was no revenue for orders that took more than......

International Trade Simulation and Report

...International Trade Simulation and Report The advantage of international trade is countries with certain quantity, quality, and efficient production of goods and services can maximize their country’s wealth. Developing country’s increase sales and revenue through production expansion. International trade increases a country’s gross domestic product (GDP) by increasing the production of products sold to other countries. The free trade agreement between Rodamia, Uthania, and Suntize allowed each country to more efficiently use their resources to increase wealth through the comparative advantage of their export commodity. The flipside of international trade is another country’s ability to produce an export more efficiently than the importing country, causing domestic producers and firms to lose revenue or the opportunity for additional revenue. For example, if Rodamia continues a free trade agreement with Uthania for imports of corn, Rodamia misses the opportunity to become a large producer and net exporter of corn – hurting domestic producers and firms. To counteract the loss of increase revenue for domestic producers and firms, the Rodamia government can impose a tariff – place a tax on the corn or limit the amount of corn imported from Uthania – a quota. The government placing a tariff or quota on corn imported from Uthania protects domestic producers and firms from cheaper imports of corn and affords time to develop......

Eagles

...The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles are members of the East division of the National Football Conference (NFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The Eagles have won three NFL championships and made two Super Bowl appearances, losing both. These were in 1980 (to the Oakland Raiders), and in 2004 (to the New England Patriots). The club was established in 1933 as a replacement for the bankrupt Frankford Yellow Jackets, when a group led by Bert Bell secured the rights to an NFL franchise in Philadelphia. Bell, Chuck Bednarik, Bob Brown, Reggie White, Steve Van Buren, Tommy McDonald, Greasy Neale, Pete Pihos, Sonny Jurgensen, and Norm Van Brocklin have been inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The team has an intense rivalry with the New York Giants. This rivalry is the oldest in the NFC East and is among the oldest in the NFL. It was ranked by NFL Network as the number one rivalry of all-time and Sports Illustrated ranks it amongst the top ten NFL rivalries of all-time at number four,[3] and according to ESPN, it is one of the fiercest and most well-known rivalries in the American football community.[4] They also have a historic rivalry with the Washington Redskins, as well as their bitter rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys, which has become more high-profile in the last three decades. Eagles fans are among the most loyal in the NFL. They consistently rank in the top three in attendance and...

Connection Speed Simulation Report

...Oscaralexis Rodríguez Justiniano #54406 Report Connection speed simulations are of great help when determining the best type of connection for your use. There are different types of connections with different speeds and characteristics just as there are different types of users, both at home and at big corporations. The budget they posses is what will determine just how much of a top quality connection they can get. Download Speed = 20kbps Utilization averages about 80% for downloads and about 2% for uploads. The high utilization of 80% does not give much available bandwidth for potential new applications or users. The Response Time is in the range of 5 to 7.5 seconds, too much and too long. This slow connection can get overloaded quite easily and would be ideal for personal use in a home. Download Speed = 40kbps This connection offers twice the speed of the last connection. Its Utilization averages 42% for downloads and about 2% for uploads. It can be seen in the simulation that twice the speed can mean twice as much bandwidth, or as close as it can get to twice as much bandwidth. Even though there are better sources for higher bandwidth, this particular connection is a decent one for a low budget user. In terms of Response Time, this connection ranges from 2.0 to 2.5 seconds. That’s more than twice the response time seen in the 20kbps connection, meaning that this connection can still be overloaded, but will require a more stern use by an equally stern......

NASCAR which includes Truck series, Nationwide, and Sprint cup series FORMULA ONE only has one division which is the FORMULA ONE. The total amount of people that watch motorsports is ”527million people” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_One#cite_note-4 National Association Stock Car Auto Racing is commonly referred to as NASCAR. NASCAR is the most popular type of motorsports which has an average of 75million people “http://www.backseatblonde.com/December6.html.” NASCAR has 28 races a season. NASCAR’s cars use the top brands which consist of Chevy, Dodge, Toyota, and Ford. Each car must have at least three stock parts: the hood, roof, and the trunk. Each engine for the cars is similar but has different parts that make them different. “Most top racing teams build their own engines from scratch. The total cost of these engines, which take more than 100 hours to build, is anywhere between $45,000 and $80,000.” [Source: Martin, Hendrick Motorsports]. “At Hendrick Motosports, a racing shop that supports four different Sprint Cup teams, a 95-person engine department cranks out more than 600 engines a year.” [source: Hendrick Motorsports].” http://auto.howstuffworks.com/auto-racing/nascar/nascar-basics/nascar-race-car-cost1.htm .

Trade Simulation Report

...Trade Simulation and Report Team B: Kimberly Castillo, Tanya Bell, Elijah B. Gowdy, Derrick Brown ECO/212 June 6, 2012 Instructor, John Holmberg One Advantage and One Limitation of International Trade Advantage and limitation of International Trade, Countries have different quantities, qualities, and cost for resources such as land, labor, capital, and entrepreneurship (University of Phoenix, 2009). International trade is the import and export of these resources between countries. International trade allows countries to distribute their resources more efficiently. Importing and exporting of resources is vital to the economy. A gain from International trading is a price increase or decrease, in the local markets. If it is cheaper to make a good and export the good the importer will gain from trade by getting a good at a better price than what the opportunity cost of it would be. If the market price was higher, a lower price exporter will allow market price to fall and pose a benefit for consumers, in the sense that everyone gains the most with minimal losses in the short run. Four Key Points Emphasized in the Simulation Within the simulation team b has identified four key points that were underlined. First there is what is called dumping. Dumping is the selling of goods and products in other countries at a cost that is lower than the cost of those goods and products in its own country. Another key point identified in the simulation was......

International Trade Simulation and Report

...International Trade Simulation and Report Samuel xxxxxxxxx ECO 212 May 07, 2012 Dr. Holscraft International Trade Simulation and Report Over the last few years the United States of America has been in an economic crisis. The economy has been affected badly by layoffs, factories closing down, and corporations needing bail outs. Whenever there is a high unemployment rate the economy heavily affected by the large number of lost laborers. Without laborers and factories to produce goods and services international trade becomes affected. International trade not only helps the United States economy but, also it helps the global economy as well. International trade provides numerous advantages to the United States economy but many limitations also exist so economic leaders must be aware of the pros and cons when negotiating these trades. Advantages and Limitations of International Trade The advantage of a free trade agreement will lower trade barriers, increase trade volume, open different markets, provide more products for consumers, and create more investments opportunities for both countries. Consumers receive the added benefits of competition and companies gain access to new markets. As outside firms invest, this investment creates jobs and tax revenue for the host country and additional revenue for the investing firm. A free trade agreement is an efficient situation for consumers and both countries involved. However, the disadvantage to a free trade agreement......
