Supply Chain Management Impact On Cost

This was the previous assignment:

 

Acting on your recommendation that the retiring purchasing manager be replaced with a more up-to-date Vice President of Global Supply Chain, the CEO hired a new one. The new VP immediately found herself facing an important decision of where to source some components that have traditionally been very high cost, when the factory makes them in-house. Here is the data she is presented with:

  • The currency of Country A is called Reds; of Country B is called Greens.
  • The currency and forecasted exchange rates are as follows:
    • $1 = 2 Reds
    • $1 = 2.2 Greens
  • The product costs for each of the 5 products from each of the 2 countries are as follows:
  Country A Country B
Product 1 10 Reds 9 Greens
Product 2 2 Reds 2.2 Greens
Product 3 7  Reds 4 Greens
Product 4 5  Reds 5 Greens
Product 5 4  Reds 4.5 Greens
  • Because of the different packaging available in the two countries, and the different skill levels in packaging, the parts per container are different between the two countries.
    • From Country A, any of the 5 parts will fit 1,000 per container
    • from Country B, any of the 5 parts will fit 800 per container
  • The ocean freight costs for a 40′ container of any of these products are as follows:
    • For Country A, costs are similar to the ocean freight from Brisbane, Australia to the port of New York City.
    • for Country B, costs are similar to the ocean freight for a 40′ container from Tokyo, Japan to the port of New York City.
    • Estimated 40′ container ocean freight costs can be found by accessing this Web site (www.freight-calculator.com).
      1. It will take about 10 minutes to fill out an RFQ form.
        • If you are unable to get quotes, use these figures: $5,000 for Brisbane; $4,400 for Tokyo.
      2. Make up a company name.
      3. Assume you are shipping a 40′ container of nonhazardous household goods.
      4. Insure the goods for $100,000.
      5. Use the upper left side of the Web page (1. Ocean Cargo) and the section for 20-/40-foot containers.

Assignment:

Take Product 1 and then:

·  Perform the necessary research and calculations regarding the best source of that product based only on total delivered (landed) cost, which includes the following:

  • Product cost from each country, taking the exchange rate into account
  • Ocean freight costs per piece, showing the quotes received from the Web site (posted below), and taking the differing number of pieces per container into account

·  Make a recommendation on which country from which to source that product, and explain your reasoning why.

Prepara an initial Public Offering

Imagine you are a recently-hired Chief Operating Officer (COO) in a midsize company preparing for an Initial Public Offering (IPO). You quickly discover multiple personnel problems that require your immediate attention.

 

  1. John posted a rant on his Facebook page in which he criticized the company’s most important customer.
  2. Ellen started a blog to protest the CEO’s bonus, noting that no one below director has gotten a raise in two (2) years and portraying her bosses as “know-nothings” and “out-of-touch”
  3. Bill has been using his company-issued BlackBerry to run his own business on the side.
  4. After being disciplined for criticizing a customer in an email (sent from his personal email account on a company computer), Joe threatens to sue the company for invasion of privacy.
  5. One of the department supervisors requests your approval to fire his secretary for insubordination. Since the secretary has always received glowing reviews, you call her into your office and determine that she has refused to prepare false expense reports for her boss.
  6. Anna’s boss refused to sign her leave request for jury duty and now wants to fire her for being absent without permission.

 

As an astute manager, you will need to analyze the employment-at-will doctrine and determine what, if any, exceptions and liabilities exist before taking any action. As you proceed with your investigation, you discover the company has no whistleblower policy.

 

In preparation for this assignment, use the Internet or Strayer Library to research your state’s employment-at-will policy.

 

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

 

  1. Summarize the employment-at-will doctrine discussed in the text and then evaluate three (3) of the six (6) scenarios described by determining:
    1. Whether you can legally fire the employee; include an assessment of any pertinent exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine.
    2. The primary action(s) that you should take to limit liability and impact on operations; specify the ethical theory that best supports your decision.
  2. Examine your state’s policy on employment-at-will. Analyze at least one (1) real-world example of an employee or employer utilizing your state’s employment-at-will doctrine in the last five (5) years. Include a summary of the main issue and the outcome in the identified real-world example.
  3. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia is not an acceptable reference and proprietary Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

 

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

 

  • Analyze and apply the concepts of freedom versus responsibility and ethical decision making.
  • Analyze and evaluate laws that protect against discrimination in the workplace.
  • Analyze and evaluate the employment-at-will doctrine and exceptions, as well as the protections afforded whistleblowers.
  • Explore the legal and ethical issues surrounding employee and consumer privacy.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in law, ethics, and corporate governance.
  • Write clearly and concisely about law, ethics, and corporate governance using proper writing mechanics.

Conceptions of the Cold War

Overview

As your reading and Discussions point out, one of the biggest issues that citizens and politicians confronted during the 1960s was the Cold War, which might be defined as the geopolitical tensions, and proxy wars fought between the United States and the Soviet Union. Indeed, for anyone who grew up during the 1950s, 60s, or 70s, the Cold War was a household topic everyone seemed to understand.

Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to analyze how people understand the Cold War today. For example, what do everyday people today think of when they hear the term “Cold War”? This is what you are going to find out!

In this assignment, you will do brief interviews with three people, asking them about their conceptions of the Cold War. Your interviewees can be anyone of your choosing: family members, friends, and so on. Below are some suggested questions that you may want to ask:

  1. What words or phrases come to mind when you think of the term Cold War?
  2. Did you ever study the Cold War in school? If so, what are some aspects of the Cold War that you remember?
  3. Who were the parties involved in the Cold War?
  4. Can you name any key events that we mainly associate with the Cold War?

Take notes on what each of your respondents say. You will need these notes to refer to later when you do the formal write-up of the assignment.

After you have completed the assignment, write up your findings in a brief essay, which addresses the following:

  1. Using quotes from your interviews, describe how each of your three respondents understand the Cold War.
  2. Explain to what extent their definition/understanding of the Cold War differs from the definition above (see the bold typeface in the Overview section above).
  3. If your respondents’ understanding of the Cold War is different from the way the Cold War is defined in this course, explain why that might be the case. (Also, if their definition of the Cold War is very similar, explain this as well!)

Your essay should be 2-3 pages in length (500–700 words)

  • Double spaced
  • #12 font –Times New Roman
  • 1” margins on all sides
  • Separate cover page and reference page
  • A minimum of one (1) outside (including texts from the course, if you like) scholarly source

Remember: Wikipedia, encyclopedias, and encyclopedia-type sources (answers.com, infoplease.com and such) are not considered academic sources.

Unit 2 Assignment Outline: Conceptions of the Cold War

This assignment requires that you interview at least three people to investigate how people understand the Cold War. If you cannot interview in person, you may interview through email or social media. The following questions are suggested:

  1. What words or phrases come to mind when you think of the term Cold War?
  2. Did you ever study the Cold War in school? If so, what are some aspects of the Cold War that you remember?
  3. Who were the parties involved in the Cold War?
  4. Can you name any key events that we mainly associate with the Cold War?

Take notes during your interviews so you can provide quotes in your write-up. If the people you are interviewing are not knowledgeable about the Cold War, do not worry! In this case no data is still data J Continue to keep notes in the interview because you will need them later.

Outline for write-up:

Section One: Introduction

Lead off your write-up with 3-4 sentences introducing the topic to your reader. State that this is an interview project with the goal of discovering how people understand the Cold War.

Section Two: Define the Cold War for context

Provide 3-4 sentences summarizing what the Cold War was and why we should know about it. You must cite sources here.

Section Three: What did your interviewees know?

Compare what the people you interviewed know about the Cold War (using quotes) with what you wrote about the Cold War in the above paragraph. How close are they? This is the main section of the paper and may be more than one paragraph. To cite interviews within an assignment you use the form (Last name, date) just as though you were citing any other source. You must cite your interviews because you are using their words.

Section Four: Explain the differences

How different were the definitions? What do you think might be some reasons for that difference? In this section you will use your own ideas (which you do not have to cite) but you may also bring in information about the Cold War from other sources or more quotes from interviews (which you will need to cite). What about if the definitions were the same? Why might that be?

Section Five: Conclusion

Conclude your assignment with 3-4 sentences summing up what you found. Your essay should be 2-3 pages in length (500–700 words).

Reference Note: How to source a personal interview

Power of Love and Relationships

Power of Love and Relationships

For this assignment, please address each of the items below:

1.   Describe the factors of attraction. What attracts us to one another? Why are we less likely to befriend someone from another culture than someone from a similar background with a similar physical aesthetic? Be sure to identify and describe all six factors in attraction.

2.   Discuss the human need to build bonds and relationships. Do we have an innate need to belong? If so, why? How is this need attached to our emotions, our social bonds, and our fear of deprivation?

3.   Explain the three types of love: companionate, passionate, and compassionate.  What are the differences and similarities among them? What is an example of each type? How does Sternberg’s Triangular Theory of Love distinguish romantic love, from empty love or infatuation? Please thoroughly address each of the components in Figure 12.1.

Include an introduction, thesis statement, and conclusion. Your completed assignment must be three to four pages in length (excluding title and reference pages).  It must include a minimum of two to three references, formatted according to APA guidelines, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

Physics

Problem 1.

Homework Assignment 3

  1. A)  Find your weight (near the surface of the earth) in Newtons.
  2. B)  Find your mass in kilograms.
  3. C)  Find what your weight in Newtons would be if you were in an orbit at a distance of 2 earth radii above the surface of the earth. (So you would be three earth radii from the center of the earth.)

Problem 2.

  1. A)  Use the gravitational force law to nd your weight on the surface of Venus. (Look up the mass and radius of Venus on the web or elsewhere.)
  2. B)  Calculate (don’t just look up) the gravitational eld strength gV (acceleration due to gravity) on the surface of Venus.

Problem 3.

  1. A)  Compare (by doing the calculations) the gravitational force that the earth exerts on the moon to the gravitational force that the sun exerts on the moon. (Look up needed physical data on the web.)
  2. B)  In part A) you should have found that the force that the sun exerts on the moon is larger than the force that the earth exerts on the moon. Why, then, doesn’t the sun pull the moon away from the earth?

Problem 4.

  1. A)  Is the gravitational force that the earth exerts on a falling eraser greater than, equal to, or less than the gravitational force that the falling eraser exerts on the earth. Briey justify your answer.
  2. B)  Why does the falling eraser of part A) accelerate towards the earth more than the earth accelerates towards the eraser?

Problem 5. Indicate whether each of the following statements is true or false. Briey justify your answers. A) An object that has zero velocity, at a given instant, must be experiencing zero net force at that instant. B) An object has the same mass when on earth and when on the moon.
C) An object has the same weight when on earth and when on the moon.

D) The gravitational force between two protons is greater in size than the electrostatic force between the two protons.

Problem 6. Consider a ball thrown straight up in the air which then returns to the level from which it was thrown. Noting that the acceleration of the ball is in the direction of the change in velocity of the ball, determine the direction of the acceleration of the ball

A) at a point on the upward path of the ball.
B) at the very top of the ight.
C) at a point on the downward ight of the ball.

Justify your answers.
Extra Credit: (5 pts) According to Newton’s Second Law, more massive objects tend to be harder to accelerate. Why then

do all objects, regardless of mass accelerate at the same rate when in free fall?
