3D digital cities models are assisting officials in Salzburg, Incheon and Vancouver in their infrastructure and development projects. Salzburg, Austria was the first city to try the 3D digital city models, and intends to use the models as a guide to new development projects while retaining the traditional architecture of the city. In Salzburg the 3D digital models will be used as a broad scale map to the more traditional and historical areas in the city, and to areas where the city can and must modernize. The 3D digital maps also allow a view of the areas more ready for and in need of the various construction and infrastructure projects. The second city to try the 3D maps, Incheon, South Korea, intends to use the maps to revitalize certain areas in the city and to technologically overall other areas. Incheon's plans comprise of a technological overall including the addition of high speed internet communications and an automated transportation system. Inceheon’s 3D models are essential for these plans as they would allow the city planners and developers to virtually simulate the proposed projects, using real world scenarios. The third major city to incorporate the 3D digital models, Vancouver, Canada, intends on using it’s models to help update city infrastructure and for new city development projects. The 3D models will also help city officials to coordinate better with each other, as the models make it easier for the associated parties to understand the city layout and proposed plans. The major advantages of 3D digital models to 2D maps and building specifications is that the models allow the associated parties, not just the specifics of one project, but a simulation of how the entire city currently looks in a much more lifelike representation. Furthermore these models offer 3D simulations of what proposed projects would look like, which is why their popularity has…...

...Examen #1 1. Are the Chinese domestic vehicle producer’s strategies good enough to be implanted in another country? With this few arguments is very difficult to determine if the strategies used by the Chinese are good enough to be implemented in another country. What is true is that the automotive industry in China represents an extraordinary case of industry development. In recent years, China has become the world’s fastest growing automotive producer despite the global economic situation. the domestic Chinese auto industry has made substantial progress. Many independent domestic automotive manufacturers have emerged and have ambitions to make cars for developed countries. Although they have to overcome difficulties, such as creating their own designs and meeting world standards in terms of product quality, safety, and environmental features, the domestic manufacturers are expanding their market share and moving up the value chain. Moreover, among the leading vehicle producers, China has been the only one showing substantial and continuous growth in its production level. Apparently the quality of Chinese cars is good, because their price devaluation over the years is less than other car from another country, particularly American cars. People all over the world trust Chinese cars. With this being said, I think their strategies are good enough to be implemented in other countries. 2. What type of leader do they need to deal with such strategies? To deal with...

Normally this would result in a low/medium incumbent rivalry. The power of suppliers will keep decreasing because Coca-Cola and Pepsi are starting to vertically integrate the bottling companies. This means that they are becoming independent from suppliers. This will keep increasing with time. “…, Pepsi announced that it would buy two of its biggest bottlers,…” “Coke, …, surprised the world with its decision to buy CCE’s North American operations …” -------------------------------------------- [ 1 ].

Back Bay Battery Paper

...Steven Michael: BADM 367 Back Bay Simulation The Back Bay Simulation taught me how to strategize in a managerial position. I was faced with tough investing decisions and what is known as the innovator’s dilemma. Deciding where to invest, either in Research and Development on existing technologies or in new technology, was the basis of the dilemma. When I first started the simulation I didn’t exactly have a strategy, but I did not just invest blindly. I looked at the information provided; consumer desires, revenue, etc. News articles would pop up simultaneously, and I used those to decide when and what to invest in. For example, if one said that customers wanted batteries that last longer, I would invest in the battery life for that specific battery. The old battery was a lot more successful and desired in the beginning, so I tried to invest mostly in that battery because it seemed to be making the most revenue. I always tried to price above cost for both technologies as to not lose money on my products. The simulation then illustrated that the market price for the old technology would drop, therefore the sales would decrease forcing me to drop the price to keep up with the market. In the end, I didn’t have a very high net profit, but it was a profit none the less. I did not do so well because I didn’t support the growth of the new battery. From the beginning, I should have invested my time and money on the upcoming battery, the exact opposite of what I did. The demand......

Badm 324 Throsel-Teskey

...Badm 324 Individual Assignment 3 Throsel-Teskey Drilling Immediate issue that Alison needs to resolve is to prepare a plan for the CEO to reduce inventory. Hence, 1. Do a financial (quantitative) analysis of the situation. (10 points) Currently, it has been seven months since the merger with Teskey-Dean which was owned by Jongsma Equity Partners. While sales have increased 40 percent, inventory levels have more than doubled going from $5.990 million to $12.584 million. The merger was supposed to help consolidate purchases from a smaller number of suppliers, but this clearly isn’t working out as planned due to the large inventory levels. The company is dealing with a large increase in demand, and the stakeholders are also pushing for results and answers to the inventory question. In the past, actual drilling supplies accounted for roughly half of the total spend of 25-27 million dollars from 400 suppliers. The goal was to reduce the number of suppliers though within the company and with the merger. Given the quantitative data in the case, we can take a deeper look at where things are at compared to where they should be. Off first glance, it is obvious that the budget for January – May falls far short of the actual inventory. In fact, there is a 61 percent increase when comparing the Inventory budget for January and the Inventory Actual. This type of increase only continues through May with the gaps getting larger and larger. The increase is so significant that the......

...Assignment #3: iPremier BADM 350 1. How well did the iPremier Company perform during the seventy-five-minute attack? If you were Bob Turley, what might you have done differently during the attack? Normally, a company would follow emergency procedures while dealing with crises, but in iPremier’s case, there was no emergency procedure available. Under these circumstances, and with no prior experience with security breaches, I believe the company performed well. Bob Turley communicated well with the other members of the company, but if I were in his shoes, I would have been more conservative and acted faster. In responding to the crisis, there were two main issues that iPremier faced – understanding the attack, and restoring order. First, regarding understanding the nature of the attack, I believe Leon performed poorly. He did not come up with any hypotheses for what had happened, nor did he fully explain the enemies that his company might have created through World of Warcraft. On the other hand, Joanne made the correct decision to go to Qdata in person to look at the traffic going in to iPremier’s site, and figure out the details of the attack from there. As for restoring order, both Tim and Stewart gave Bob their professional opinion, and explained to him their views on pulling the plug. If I were in Bob Turley’s shoes, I would have decided to pull the plug as soon as I heard both sides of the plug-pulling argument. Tim said that pulling the plug would destroy the......

Study Session 1

...InterAmerican University of Puerto RicoMetropolitan Campus Study Session #1 Josephine Rivera BADM 5090 1. Specify the difference among need, want and demand. Provide examples for each one. According to Hiam, A. & Schewe, C. (1992) they define need; something that is necessary for a person’s physical or psychological well-being. They also define want; something that is lacking that is desirable or useful. It is formed by a person’s experiences, culture, and personality. In addition they define demand; the composite desire for particular products as measured by how consumers choose to allocate their resources among different products in a given market. Some example of things we need are; food, oxygen and mental sanity. This three main factors play a critical role in a person’s necessity to live. For something that is wanted; we can use the latest technology as an example. The media is constantly changing and updating their devices, this leads us to desire the newest products for personal and psychical reasons. Now for demand a good example can be Apple products; the consumers tend to desire it so much that the company manufactures big amounts to comply with what the buyers wants and not loose them to a competitor in their market. 2. Define the term “positioning”. Provide an example from your personal experience. Hiam, A. & Schewe, C. (1992) defines positioning; process in which a marketer......

Hp Deskjet Case

...BADM 566 Supply Chain Management- write-up 3 Advancement Team 5: Yu Ting Tseng, Evren Yücel, Aslanbek Amrin, Nick Timmons, Jiraphong Tisavipat 1. HP is in an inventory crisis. What should it do? Qualitatively evaluate the options in case A. There are two significant, main issues in this case. First, we are inquiring into the best way to satisfy customer needs in terms of product availability, whilst minimizing inventory. The second refers to what exactly minimizing inventory means; is driving towards zero the proper focus for level of inventory? These issues arise because of H-P’s incredible success in the Inkjet Printers space. Their huge sales growth with the revolutionary Deskjet brought great revenue; And with that, the archetypal dual supply chain problem of decreasing availabilities amidst increasing inventories. There are several significant recommendations that we have, broken down according to A-E, listed below: A. Building a new European factory: We do not recommend building a new factory in Europe, because it is not entirely clear whether or not European volumes are large enough for the area to justify its own site. To be sure, the average demand in Europe is ~23,000 units/month, which is only 44% of total demand that Vancouver covers itself already. Besides, a new factory would add new overhead costs. So, even though the inventory and service crisis is most acute in Europe, and a new factory would go some ways in that regard, ultimately, there are......

Coastal provided work uniforms and uniform cleaning services to manufacturing and services industries. Until 1999, “Coastal had achieved steady growth for the past 22 straight years”, after 1999 the company started having some financial issues. Corners were cut in the manufacturing process and management started adding fees to the invoices without letting customers know. Summary of Past Activities: In 1999, Coastal noticed that several small competitors had negotiated some key contracts away from Coastal. Sales and profit were flat this year and Coastal management’s “Rule 35” was not going to be met. This was only the start of Coastal’s rough decline. In 2000, Coastal decreased the quality of their uniforms by ordering lower quality cotton and polyester uniforms, yet they sold them at the same price as the higher quality ones. They also reduced “unnecessary features” such as extra buttons, snaps on cuffs and name patches were sewn on using wider stitches. Coastal stopped putting their customer first and started prioritizing profit. They also added a “delivery surcharge” to each order, and only removed the extra cost for those few customers who complained. The sales quotas for delivery personnel were increased from $300/week to $800/week. In one year,......

...Brandy Fontenot BADM 218-WH Assignment #3 April 21, 2011 Imagine you are the marketing manager for a US manufacturer of disposable diapers. Your firm is considering entering the Brazilian market. Your CEO believes the advertising message that has been effective in the United States will suffice in Brazil. Outline some possible objections to this. Your CEO also believes that the pricing decisions in Brazil can be delegated to local managers. Why might she be wrong? The use of a uniform advertising message offers a number of advantages. However, the difference in customer perceptions and response patterns across the country of Brazil and their culture, as well as media availability and government regulations are major barriers to use a standardized advertising message. With the advanced technological developments, adaption of advertising appeals to different languages. Two major developments are that television can have audio channels in two languages and Internet messages can be automatically translated. The development of visual and verbal advertising that works effectively in multiple countries poses major creative challenges. We could develop a uniform image for the company with consistent visual images and the corporate logo, with a modified advertising message providing information tailored to the Brazilian market and their culture. Accommodating the perception of the culture of Brazil will be our most challenging objective. Allowing local......
