Presented by Donnette Russell Marketing Plan Table of Contents Executive Summary 3 The Challenge 3 Situation Analysis 4 Market Segment 4 Alternative Marketing Strategies 4 Selected Marketing Strategy 4 Short and Long Term Projections 4 Conclusion 4 Executive Summary Optical Distortion, Inc. was incorporated in 1966, after an innovator by the name of Daniel Garrison stumbled upon an opportunity to enhance the output of common chicken egg production by inserting a form of contact lens that would blur, or distort the vision of the producing bird just enough to maintain optimal production while making the handling of these creatures easier. Based upon observations of a flock of chickens in Arizona which were afflicted with cataracts and separated from the remaining flock, it was noted that not only did these birds consume less food while retaining the same level of production as the remaining flock, but the ease to which handling the birds increased to the point that instead of curing the afflicted birds, the farmer requested to have his remaining flock “infected” with the same visual distortion. Through trial and error, ODI was ready for implementation of the lenses by 1973 with high hoped and great expectations. The Challenge As with any new product, multiple challenges arise throughout the creation and development process, which include, but are not limited to the product itself - insuring...

Fibres

...Fibre Prevents Constipation Dietary fibre refers to the parts of plant which are eaten as food majority of which passes undigested into the colon. Fibres are of 2 types: soluble and insoluble fibres. It is a known fact that daily intake of fibre helps in relieving one from constipation. Fibre contains resistant starch meaning the starch which is resistant to human enzymes, non-starch polysaccharides like cellulose, gums and lignin. How fibre helps to prevent constipation Dietary fibre especially insoluble fibre helps to prevent constipation by increasing stool weight and decreasing gut transit time. Since insoluble fibre doesn’t dissolve in water so it adds bulk to the stool. The resultant stool passes through the bowel more easily and quickly. More faecal bulk results in less pressure in the colon while defecating which leads to less straining. Insoluble fibres are made up of cellulose, lignins and some hemicelluloses. Insoluble fibres are found in Whole-wheat flour, wheat bran, nuts, beans & dark green leafy vegetables like cauliflower, potatoes, celery and carrots. Insoluble Fibre is mainly responsible in maintaining the wave like contractions known as peristalsis which move food through the intestine thus promoting regular passage of stools. Fibres expand the inside walls of the colon which eases the passage of waste. Soluble fibre as the name indicates is easily soluble in water and mixes with fatty acids to form gel-like consistency which keeps stools......

Optical Illusions

...Optical Illusions Specific Purpose: To inform the audience on how optical illusions work. Introduction Attention Getter: The eye of the beholder. Thesis Statement: The eye gathers information that is processed by the brain and sometimes what we think we see is not what is actually there. No, that doesn’t mean we are all crazy. Relevance: Every day we are surrounded by hundreds of images that are perceived differently from objective reality, though we may not notice it. Preview of Points: Merriam-Webster defines optical illusions as something that looks different from what it is: something that you seem to see but is not really there. Optical illusions can be divided into three types, literal optical, physiological and cognitive illusions. Transition: Let’s explore literal optical illusions. Body I. Literal optical illusions create images that are different from the objects that make them. A. What happens. 1. The illusion exists when the object configured as an image doesn’t exist. 2. From the beginning the image never changes. B. Branches that make up a baby. 1. At first look you may notice a couple looking out at the water. 2. Looking at a broader view you can see the branches are in the shape of a baby. Transition: Physiological illusions are quite different than literal optical illusions. II. Physiological illusions are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type brightness, color, size, position, tilt, movement. A. The...

Optical Distortion

...OPTICAL DISTORTION, INC. ESTRATEGIA DE MARKETING RODRIGO DE LA MAZA V. SECCIÓN N8 CONTEXTO El caso presenta el desafío de la empresa Optical Distrotion, Inc en el desarrollo del programa comercial para el único y nuevo producto que esperaban lanzar al mercado. El consistía en unos lentes de contacto para gallinas ponedoras que les cegaban parcialmente la vista lo que daba como resultado el menor consumo de alimento y un manejo más fácil de estas debido a la eliminación de las jerarquías sociales y por ende del canibalismo que se producía en los corrales. Como muchas otras aves las gallinas son animales sociales y por ende tienen una jerarquía social que empieza a manifestarse y desarrollarse a medida que las aves crecen. Este orden social es el resultado de la capacidad de las aves para identificarse unas a otras, lo cual se demuestra por picotazos y luchas que establecen un orden social jerárquico. Mediante el reconocimiento de la cresta se podía establecer la jerarquía social ya que identifica la posición de la cabeza. Las aves dominantes llevan la cabeza alta en cambio los sumisos la mantienen baja. Si un ave sumisa levantaba la cabeza o entraban a un área donde vivían aves dominantes eran víctimas de picotazos que llegaban al canibalismo. Esto significaba que las aves sumisas estaban menos tiempo en el comedero y producían menos huevos. Adicionalmente el reemplazo de las aves muertas generaba otro problema por la alteración que se generaba en la jerarquía...

Carbon Fibre

...Carbon Fibre Carbon fibre is sometimes known as graphite fibre, it is a strong, stiff, lightweight material that has the potential to replace steel and is popularly used in specialized, high-performance products like aircrafts, race cars and sporting equipment. Carbon fibre was first invented near Cleveland, Ohio, in 1958. It wasn’t until a new manufacturing process was developed at a British research centre in 1963 that carbon fibres strength potential was realized. Current methods for manufacturing carbon fibre tend to be slow and energy intensive, making it costly for use in mass-produced applications. However engineers have set a goal of reducing carbon fibre production costs by 50 percent, the Energy Department’s new Carbon Fibre Technology Facility at Oak Ridge National Laboratory is working with manufacturers and researchers to develop better and cheaper processes for producing carbon fibres. As part of conventional carbon fibre production, precursors go through several processes that include stretching, oxidation (to raise the melting temperature) and carbonization in high-temperature furnaces that vaporize about 50 percent of the material, making it nearly 100 percent carbon. Carbon fibre can be woven into a fabric that is suitable for use in defence applications or added to a resin and moulded into preformed pieces, such as vehicle components or wind turbine blades. Carbon-fibre composites could reduce passenger car weight by 50 percent and improve fuel......

...Guna Fibres Ltd. Presented to: All-India Bank and Trust Co. Presented by: Surabhi Kumar Re: Remedies for current liquidity problems Current Situation Guna Fibres (GF) requires a loan to pay the outstanding excise tax so that the government tax inspector releases our trucks. GF faces with a cash flow shortage due to the seasonality of the business. Typically, our business is active and profitable during April through August and we expect this trend to continue. On a fiscal basis, GF has operated in a profitable manner but because we are in the middle of our slow season, additional funds are required to operate until busy season begins. GF´s working capital is not sufficient. Currently, there are approximately INR $5 million but normally the requirement is INR $14 million that is expected to be finance by short-term debt. GF is also planning to pay dividends which is not feasible when it cannot pay basic operational expenses to ensure the continuous performance of the organization. Therefore, we have come up with the following action plan to secure these funds: Recommendation Immediate In order to address the immediate concerns, we will change the investment effort made on inventory purchases supply by lowering them from 60 to 30 days. In addition we will increase the collection efforts by 10% and reduce the amount of minimum cash on hand in order to use the excess of fund (if available) more adequately. By decreasing inventory purchases to 30 instead of 60 days,......

(Guna) is heavily dependent on its bank loan to fund its short-term operations. The terms of All-India Bank & Trust Company’s (All-India) bank loan specify that Guna must reduce its seasonal line of credit to a zero balance for at least 30 days each year. Financial statement forecasts currently indicate that Guna will not be able to clean up its loan by the end of 2012. If Guna does nothing to rectify its financial situation immediately, the lending officer at All-India will refuse to extend any more seasonal credit to Guna. A refusal to extend seasonal credit to Guna will severely affect the company’s operations and may, in the extreme case, force a bankruptcy as the company runs out of cash. Guna is encountering difficulties in its short-term bank loan repayment largely due to lower profit margins in 2011 despite a rapid rise in sales of 18%. The lower profit margins can be attributed to an increase in both operating......

Kota Fibres

...KOTA FIBRES What does the forecast show? Do you like how it is constructed? The company has projected gross sales to reach 90.9 million rupees in 2001, an forecasted growth of approximately 15 million rupees over the previous year. In spite of the large increase, there are several additional financial factors which need to be taken into account in evaluating the forecast. For instance, Total asset turnover gives an understanding of the efficiency with which the firm uses its assets to generate sales. Total Asset Turnover in this particular case is suboptimal at best. In 2000, Kota had a total asset turnover ratio of .18, with a ratio value of .17 in projected for 2001. This shows major inefficiencies in the management of assets by the company, as it only turns its assets over .18 times a year. They may want to increase this ratio number by increasing their amount of total assets. Kota Fibres as a company (as far as its financial statements are concerned) is very capable of satisfying its short-term obligations as they come due. With a current ratio of 3.24 and quick ratio of 2.38, Kota is operating within acceptable levels (acceptable values are 2.0 and 1.0, respectively). However, the forecasted ratio for 2001 shows that this ratio drops to 1.5:1, which is below the acceptable level of 2.0 set for a manufacturing firm. This means they will have some problem paying their bills on time with the projected production and sales levels. Kota Fibres, in 2000, had a quick......

Optical Fibre

...An optical fiber or optical fibre is a thin, flexible, transparent fiber that acts as a waveguide, or "light pipe", to transmit light between the two ends of the fiber. The field of applied science and engineering concerned with the design and application of optical fibers is known as fiber optics. Optical fibers are widely used in fiber-optic communications, which permits transmission over longer distances and at higher bandwidths (data rates) than other forms of communication. Fibers are used instead of metal wires because signals travel along them with less loss and are also immune to electromagnetic interference. Fibers are also used for illumination, and are wrapped in bundles so they can be used to carry images, thus allowing viewing in tight spaces. Specially designed fibers are used for a variety of other applications, including sensors and fiber lasers. Optical fiber typically consists of a transparent core surrounded by a transparent cladding material with a lower index of refraction. Light is kept in the core by total internal reflection. This causes the fiber to act as a waveguide. Fibers which support many propagation paths or transverse modes are called multi-mode fibers (MMF), while those which can only support a single mode are called single-mode fibers (SMF). Multi-mode fibers generally have a larger core diameter, and are used for short-distance communication links and for applications where high power must be transmitted. Single-mode fibers are used for......

Optical Pump

...Optical Pumping Lab Report [Basic Principle] Before discussing the optical pumping, we have to mention the energy levels of the atom and their splitting due to the interaction between the spin of electron, orbital angular momentum of electron and spin of nuclei. We denote them with S, L, and I respectively. And the total angular momentum of electron is denoted by J, (Grand) total angular momentum is denoted by F. Therefore we will have to deal with the LS interaction, IJ interaction and later the interaction between the Grand total angular momentum and external magnetic field. A very schematic picture of the energy levels of 87Rb under a weak external field is shown in Fig. 1. After applying an weak external magnetic field on the atom, the formally degenerated energy level with same F will further split into 2F+1 sublevels, denoted by mF which is the projection of Grand total angular momentum to the direction of external field B0. Fig. 1 Until now we haven't mention any thing about the optical pumping. Now we have the atom well prepared, the only thing we have to do is to illuminate the vapor of Rubidium with some well tuned highly polarized light. Well tuned means the spectrum of the incident light is better to be narrow, this can be achieved by using a interference filter to screen out the unwanted light and let only the D1 line pass, namely when this light illuminated on the Rb vapor, only transitions between sublevels originated from 5S1/2 and sublevels......

Optical Loss in Waveguide

...rectangular waveguides and a standard single-mode optical fiber has been calculated. Losses as low as 0.16 dB can be reached for waveguides with a refractive-index contrast in the range of 0.5% to 1.96%. The fabrication tolerances are such that practical devices with coupling losses below 0.25 dB are feasible. Key words: Coupling loss, optical waveguides, integrated optics. 1. Introduction In optical systems that contain integrated optical components, mode-field mismatch between the fundamental mode of the waveguides of an integrated optical circuit and the optical fiber that is connected to the circuit may cause unacceptable power losses. This problem becomes more important as the refractive-index contrast of the integrated optical waveguides, D, which is given by the core refractive index nco and the cladding refractive index ncl, D5 nco2 2 ncl2 2nco 2 < nco 2 ncl nco , 112 is increased. To achieve a good match to optical fibers, silica waveguides are usually designed to have D in the range 0.3–0.7%. Coupling loss as low as 0.05 dB has been reported for such waveguides.1 Increasing D, however, may be preferable because it makes a reduction of the size 1and hence the price2 of an optical component possible.2 The size reduction is mainly due to shorter coupling lengths in directional couplers and reduced radius of curvature in S bends. Systematic calculation of the coupling loss between waveguides and optical fibers has to our knowledge L. O.......
