After investigations, we discovered that some materials were causing this problem to arise. Employees covered up this issue during testing to ensure a fast production and strength their ability to compete with other companies.

Petrie's Electronics Case, Chapter 5

...Petrie's Electronics Case, Chapter 5, Questions 1, 3, and 5 (page 151) 1. What do you think are the sources of the information Jim and his team collected? Conducted interviews with key stakeholders inside the company, He had also worked with the marketing group to put together some focus groups made up of loyal customers, to get some ideas about what they would value in a customer loyalty program. Jim had also spent some time studying customer loyalty programs at other big retail chains and those in other industries as well, such as the airlines, known for their extensive customer loyalty programs. 3. If you were looking for alternative approaches for Petrie’s customer loyalty program, where would you look for information? Where would you start? How would you know when you were done? An alternative approach would be by Business Process Reengineering. It is the search for, and implementation of, radical change in business processes to achieve breakthrough improvements in products and services. The first step would be to identify key business processes which are the structured set of measurable activities designed to produce a specific output for a particular customer or market. 5. Why shouldn’t Petrie’s staff build their own unique system in-house? From the list of requirements, it was clear that Petrie’s staff should seek outside IT consulting to build their system. It would be too expensive and time consuming, not to mention, building a system like this......

Senior managers would discuss possible solutions with their teams and reach compromises with other functional areas senior managers.   Question 2 There is a significant amount of both underlying and obvious conflict in MediSys Corp. What conflicts have you ascertained? What conflict resolution strategies would you recommend for each situation? Support your recommendations with evidence. The key areas of internal conflict that I have identified in this case study include the pressure of launching the product by August 2009; the incorporation of a modular design into the product; and, the need to meet regulatory compliance requirements. Product Delivery and Modular Design Points of Conflict Pressure is being exerted by Merz on the engineering team to meet the product delivery deadline and to incorporate a modular design. Merz believes that her concerns are aligned with delivering the most profitable product for MediSys Corporation. Being first to market with the IntensCare product will provide greater possibility of product profitability, which is a key driver for Merz. Beaumont has made it clear that the corporation’s reputation is on the line and has made it a requirement that MediSys......

Members of the subsidiary’s management team include Herman Klein, President and Marlene Baer, Controller. The initial purpose of this subsidiary is to market two products that were previously marketed in Europe successfully. Bremen Electronics USA began developing a strategy to expand their operations to US markets to meet a target profit of $210,000 for 1994. The first product was a garage door opener including a sender and receiver. This is referred to as RC1. The marketing strategy for this product included an agreement from a large motorized garage door manufacturer to take 100,000 units per year at a minimum. The president and controller agreed that 120,000 units was an appropriate annual target for RC1 units. The second product was similar to a remote control garage door opener. This product turned on inside lights remotely when a person arrives home after dark. This was referred to as RC2. The marketing strategy for this product was primarily mail order catalogs. Klein and Baer agreed that this marketing method should reach the goal of 60,000 RC2 units for 1994. In planning for 1994, Marlene Baer, Controller, began developing a financial plan to analyze costs and create more accurate projections. Much of the initial projections were based on assumptions that need further......

Nec Electronic Case Study

...9-209-001 REV: NOVEMBER 3, 2010 C. FRITZ FOLEY ROBIN GREENWOOD JAMES QUINN NEC Electronics In early July 2007, Alp Ercil, Managing Partner and portfolio manager of Perry Capital’s (“Perry”) Asian portfolio, was considering options for how best to manage the $150 million position his firm had in NEC Electronics (NECE), the semiconductor subsidiary of Japanese electronics conglomerate NEC. In recent days, the NECE subsidiary had garnered Ercil’s full attention. On the heels of attending NECE’s annual meeting, he had learned that the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) was placing NECE on a watchlist for possible delisting due to its concentrated ownership structure. To Ercil, this was yet another sign that the investment was not going as planned - the stock was down considerably since Perry initiated the position in late 2005 (see Exhibit 1). Ercil took a moment to reflect on the recent history with NECE. When Perry Capital made the initial investment in 2005, Ercil had every expectation for success. Ercil’s team felt that NECE’s microcontroller unit (“MCU”) business,1 which supplied chips to major automobile manufacturers, operated at a world-class level with high growth potential and solid margins. NECE’s Computing, Consumer and Discrete businesses were generally competitive. However, the Communications business, which supplied semiconductors for mobile phones, appeared to be a constant drag on NECE’s cash flow and earnings. Specifically, Perry believed that......

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at any time. Group 4: Acme Electronics Case Executive Summary This report is dealing with the case of ACME Electronics vs. Otto Gunter. Gunter purchased a computer from ACME Electronics in 2002. In 2004, the hard drive crashed and he brought it in to ACME Electronics to have it replaced, as well as request for his old hard drive back to retrieve his information. ACME replaced the hard drive and gave Gunter his supposed old hard drive. Gunter spent $800 retrieving information from the hard drive only to find out it was mixed with another customer’s. The other customer disposed of Gunter’s old hard drive, so he cannot retrieve it. Gunter is suing ACME for $800 for retrieving information from the wrong hard drive supplied by ACME, $5,000 for time spent reconstructing the lost information, and $10,000 for punitive damages. The point of this report is to analyze the legal ramifications and statistics based on the situation at hand and to deduce the appropriate course of action to take based off the analysis.

Fujiyama Electronics Case Study

...Fujiyama Electronics Case Study Total Quality Management BSOP326 Professor; Earl Wiese Fujiyama Electronics, Inc. has had difficulties with circuit boards purchased from an outside supplier. Unacceptable variability occurs between two drilled holes that are supposed to be 5 cm apart on the circuit boards. Thirty samples of 4 boards each were taken from shipments from the supplier. With the information input and calculated we find that center X-bar number is 5.1 and the R-bar number is 1.803 with a Range of .68. When reviewing the X-chart we find that sample number 18 and 20 are outside the upper range and sample 18 is also outside the upper limits of the R-chart. Upon review we find that sample number 18 are assignable conditions which can be removed and produces the following results. What we find with this additional information is that the new X-bar becomes 5.105 an increase which is also an increase in the UCL and the LCL and reduces the area of the control limits, but caused no movement in the range. However sample number 18 and 20 are still outside the upper limit on the X-chart but all sample numbers fall within the control limits in the R-chart. If we remove both sample 18 and 20 from the original data set of 30 the following information is produced. Again we have a reduction in the X-bar control limits and sample 18 and 20 still remain outside the upper limits but fall within the limits of the R-chart....
