Case on- US Airways Cost Structure
US Airways Corporation (formerly US Air) was formed with the merger of several diverse regional airlines including Allegheny Airlines, Mohawk Airlines, Lake Central Airlines, Pacific Southwest Airlines and Piedmont Airlines. The mergers that ultimately led to the establishment of US Airways did not come without difficulties.
US Airways possesses a diverse fleet of aircraft, unlike the much more successful Southwest Airlines, which flies only one type of plane, the Boeing 737. US Airways’ diversity results in higher costs of maintenance and crew training and in a much more complex crew scheduling problem.Because of the traditionally week competition in its Northeast market stronghold, US Airways had the highest yield in the airline industry in 1993.
The combination of high yields and very high costs per available seat mile invited competition. With the cloud of a potential bankruptcy hanging over it, US Airways looked for ways to control its costs in order to restore its financial health. Cost control is a difficult problem in any corporation. It is, however, especially difficult in a capital-intensive industry such as this.

Case on- Rising Marginal Cost of 747s
Boeing and Airbus provide all the wide-bodied jets the world needs. Boeing 747, 767 and 777s typically have a 60-70 percent share of the worldwide market, but Airbus accepted the majority of the new orders in 1994-1995 and doubled their output rate from 126 to 232 planes per year. Eventually incremental variable costs must rise as designers and shop floor get congested with new instructions and new diagrams.
Alternatively a company like Boeing can secure a 40% increase in the production rate of final assembly by contracting out more sub-assemblies. In the late 1990s, wide body prices did not rise because of intense competitive pressure from Airbus, but the marginal…...

The House of Lords

...“As the House of Lords has existed for about six centuries without reform, some alterations have become necessary in order to bring it into conformity with the changed institutions by which it is surrounded.” – Lord Rosebery, 1884.1 Since Lord Rosebery’s well-known speech there has been much debate about changes in the composition of the House of Lords. Major reforms included the Life Peerages Act 1958 and later the House of Lords Act 1999, which reduced the hereditary members to 92.2 Nevertheless, constitutional experts such as Rodney Brazier argue that the House of Lords continues to be “unelected, unrepresentative and unaccountable.”3 The Coalition Government is therefore working on another reform bill to provide for a wholly or largely elected second chamber. This essay will argue that such a drastic change from a largely appointed to an elected system is too unrealistic to be implemented. Instead, the Government should seek to abolish Prime Ministerial patronage as well as the remaining hereditary members and adopt an independent Appointments Commission that appoints all the members of the upper chamber. To arrive at this conclusion, we will need to analyse which selection method best retains the Lords’ expertise, as well as their independence and representativeness. Then, a discussion follows whether the Lords necessarily ought to be democratically elected to provide a legitimate chamber. Lastly, the possibility of a mixed chamber will be considered. The House of......

Choice House

...Memo – Choice House To: Joan Tanner and Finance Committee I have investigated the matters brought to my attention by the Board of Directors Finance Committee and have come to the following conclusions with the information gathered. 1. Were the ED’s salary and benefits in line for EDs with other nonprofits similar to Choice House? As Choice House belongs to a consortium of nonprofits, I contacted the consortium to gain some clarification on the questions of salary and benefits for the ED. I was informed that the salary of $70k and benefits of $7k were indeed comparable to salaries and benefits of other EDs in the area. I believe we are paying the ED a very reasonable salary with the understanding that Beth was hired because of her previous track record and the expectation that she would be able to produce similar results for Choice House. 2. Why was the office supplies line $7,500 over budget? Who was using the supplies and for what projects? It should be noted that Choice House has submitted five grants in the fourth quarter, two of which were recommended by the board. None of the five grants have yet been approved. If any of these grants were to go through it would more than make up for the shortage in budgetary funds. Unfortunately it will be a few more months before Choice House will hear anything about these grants. Most of the expenses this quarter were due to publicity brochures and small gift items that the ED requested for her trip to the...

This was evolutionary change but they were beginning to be more confident of their capabilities and began to ask the more strategic question of where they might go from here. Aster was 110th in the league table of housing associations, with 5,000 housing units. A relatively medium-sized association, to be in the top 50 it would have to grow to 10,000 units. Sadly the Chief Executive died suddenly in November 2001, sending a shockwave through the organization. The new Chair, John Heffer, had been in place just a week. Appointing an interim Chief Executive from in-house Aster began to look for someone to lead it who was entrepreneurial, pacesetting, had a track record but who would work with its values and its staff. One of those short-listed – Richard Kitson – wanted to know from his side whether Sarsen was ambitious, keen, prepared to take calculated risks and adventurous. A match had been made. Richard had experience within the public sector – leading and growing a local authority housing service, and within the housing association world – managing the fastest-growing region of a well respected national association with a long history of success, including managing large numbers of staff in an operation that was noted for its efficiency and its substantial development.

...noted that in the mid ‘90s, the main administrator of government-subsidized housing finance programs, the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation or NHMFC, was considered technically insolvent and irreversibly illiquid. “The corporation incurred net losses of P64 million in 1993, which increased six-fold by end of 1995 to P340 million. The fiscal impact of these losses was huge,” Ballesteros said. Problems with government housing finance persist, with the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) putting on hold its housing loan program in 2011 due to total unpaid loans of P11 billion for 17,000 house-and-lot packages nationwide. It had been providing housing loans since 1954, previously to GSIS members only but later began extending loans to developers. The institution eventually went into real estate development, buying land and building houses and selling these as house-and-lot packages. GSIS did not have adequate manpower to support its various financing activities, however, which resulted in its failure to collect payments. As of mid-2014, GSIS reported that its housing loan remedial and restructuring program had only restructured about P1.5 billion worth of accounts covering 3,000 borrowers. Ballesteros said that, moving forward, more effective institutional and policy changes have to be made. Subsidy interventions in the financial system, for instance, should be focused on low- to middle-income households, or those who are able to fulfill obligations......

...their children; parents were no longer willing to buy $300 premium shoes for their kids as they did in previous years. Mr. Gorr concurred and mentioned something about “not sparing the rod.” In order to compensate for decreased sales, the Company has raised prices by about 10% with respect to product costs. Mr. Lancaster lamented that the quality of Apollo products was too high—the shoes were just not wearing out fast enough. Mr. Lancaster also stated that because of the strength of current product lines and as a cost-cutting measure, he decided to stop research and development efforts on the Phoneshoe, thereby eliminating Research and Development expense for the current year. The development lab will be modified in 2012 to house a personal gym for corporate executives. Scientists working in the lab have been reassigned to maintenance duties elsewhere in the company. The Company has also saved postage and telephone expense through increased use of e-mail. In other business, the board authorized the write-off of one account receivable for $8,810.13 for an account that had been outstanding for over a year.

Elizabeth Country Wares

...Situation Analysis Elizabeth Hine’s “Elizabeth’s Country Wares (ECW)” deals in decorative country housewares and ceramic pottery business. Although ceramic pieces of equal/better functionality and lower price are easily available in the market, product differentiation has helped ECW’s products appeal to its customers. The firm’s products, mainly targeted at middle to upper-income households, have a country theme out of which, 3 “burst” themes are very successful: the “appleburst”, the “heartburst” and “the heart sideburst”. Also, the flexibility in designs and a wide array of choices has helped ECW to cater to the ever-changing consumer preferences. Currently, Country Pitchers (CP) is the primary seller of ECW featuring the hand painted design but also, the least profitable one. Due to the growing interest of some of the firm’s primary sellers in CP, the demand of CP for the next year is forecasted at 3000 pieces. The availability of Elizabeth limits the process that ECW currently uses in the CP production, thereby limiting the current CP production rate to 1996 pieces a year (Exhibit 1.1). Also, out of the two kilns being used (each having a capacity of 12 CPs); one is available for 225 days in CP production, and the other for 275 days in CP production. Digitally designed/ screen printed decals can be used to replace Elizabeth’s hand painted designs. By using Decals, the firm can, not only increase its capacity (Exhibit 1.1) but also earn more profits by making use of......
