Ford`S Outsourcing Problem

...Ford`s Outsourcing Problem Ford Motor Company is an automobile Multinational Enterprise established in Detroit in 1903. Ford has been sustaining heavy profit losses in its European operations due to the economic downturn affecting most of Europe. The “company now expects Ford Europe’s pre-tax loss for full year 2012 to exceed $1.5 billion” (http://media.ford.com/images/10031/3Q2012_Financials.pdf, 2012). “Business refers to any type of economic activity in which goods or services are supplied in exchange for some payment” (J. Morrison 2010) and in this case Fords European vehicle sales market has been saturated through less demand for its products. Ford said European car sales across the industry were the lowest in 20 years (BBC News, 2012). The main losses are being sustained within Europe in which Ford operates in 51 different European markets. Ford`s strategy is likely to be offshoring manufacturing of the Transit Van, meaning the closure of its South Hampton Factory with immediate redundancies of 500 employees with closing parts of the Dagenham Plant which will push redundancies to 1400. Although is this likely to be the answer? What will be the effect upon the microeconomic factors? Especially the level of job losses of stakeholders, including suppliers and employees, further down the chain. Is it ethnical of Ford to simply offshore production to a cheaper labour area such as Turkey or is this just a simple case of how Britain’s Manufacturing industry is further...

Thi S I Believe

...This I Believe In Manila, Philippines, I grew up in a big family with a special child. My sister, Christine, had an extra chromosome that made her a special child. Many people in my country in the 1970’s thought that having a genetic disorder like Down syndrome was a curse from God. Really, she was not a curse, but a wonderful blessing to my family. Children from our neighborhood did not want to be associated with her because Christine looked differently than any kids. Unlike me, Christine could not express her self well verbally. She could not play outside because most youngsters would not understand her. Every time I took my sister to the nearby store to buy her favorite ice cream, our neighbors usually talked about my sister and laughed at her. As a kid, all I knew was to complain to my parents about what people said. However, my parents would simply tell me not to be bothered of what our neighbors were saying about Christine; my father and my mother always reminded me not to judge anyone because of how they look like, and this I believe. Christine was born in 1975; she was our youngest, the sixth child for my mother who was in her 40’s at that time. My sister always felt loved and cared for, not because Christine had special needs, but because she was the youngest among the family. My parents never thought that Christine was different. All the children in my family went to school; therefore, my parents wanted Christine to go to school too. Even though it was......

Problems of Today´S World

...WARS NATO After the WW II States of Western Europe and North America watched the expensive policy of the USSR. They found out that the Russian system, especially the dictatorship of the Communist Party, could become dangerous for independent democratic states. This threat stengthened with the events of years 1947-1949 (the putch in Czechoslovakia in February 1948, blockade of Berlin in April 1948). In March 1948 Belgium, France, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the UK signed the TREATY OF BRUSSELS. By this act they decided to build up a system of collective security defence. The negotiation about establishing the NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION was started with the USA and Canada. The Five Brussels‘ states also invited Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Norway and Portugal to participate in these talks. On April 4, 1949 the TREATY OF WASHINGTON was signed and so the states founded the collective security system. In 1952 Greece and Turkey entered NATO. The Federal Republic of Germany joined in 1955, Spain in 1982. In July 1997 three Middle European states were appealed to enter. They were the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland and they entered in 1999. Since the foundation the main interest of NATO has been to ensure the security of the member states. In the Washington Treaty it is said that a military attack against one of the member states is against all of them. Nowadays NATO cooperates with many East and Middle European countries in the field of safety. NATO also......

"The Only Factor That a Judge Should Consider When Sentencing Is the Nature of the Crime Committed”. Discuss the Validity of This Statement.

...sentencing is the nature of the crime committed”. Discuss the validity of this statement. The Criminal Law (Sentencing Act) 1988 determines that during the process of sentencing an offender, the nature of any indictable offence must be taken into account by a judge, along with a range of aggravating and mitigating factors. Essentially the judge must order a sentence that is fair considering the gravity of the offence and the particular circumstances of the offender; this is known as the "principle of proportionality". Comprised of objective and subjective factors, aggravation and mitigation factors often encompass key aspects of a judge's ruling - as evident in most sentencing remarks; they play a pivotal role in ensuring that each guilty individual is sentenced appropriately. As outlined in section 29A of the South Australian Criminal Law (Sentencing Act) of 1988, the court may “indicate an appropriate range of penalties for a particular offence or offences of a particular class” and “indicate how particular aggravating or mitigating factors (or aggravating or mitigating factors of a particular kind) should be reflected in sentence.” True justice, in terms of sentencing, can only be achieved if consideration is given to the offender's criminal history, personal circumstances, and post-crime actions: the nature of the offender as well as the nature of the crime must be considered by the judge. As made apparent by most sentencing remarks, alongside the nature of the crime......

...Outline for Case Reports: Please follow this outline for all written case reports. Please note that this follows the discussion below. 1. Situation Analysis 2. Assumptions and Missing Information 3. Problem Definition 4. Development of Alternatives 5. Evaluation of Alternatives and Recommendation to Management 6. Appendix – Used for exhibits such as pro-forma income statements and other detailed analyses. The Case Analysis Framework The case analysis framework presented here is a synthesis of the frameworks used by your professor and other marketing professors who use case analysis in their courses. It will provide a solid structure to organize the diverse information presented in a case. As you work your way through this framework, or a similar approach to case analysis, we offer the following hints to increase your probability of success: 1. No one can analyze a case after reading it only one time, or even worse, doing the analysis during the first reading of the case. You should read through the case once just to get an understanding of the nature of the case. During the second reading, you can begin to structure and classify the issues as they appear. A truly comprehensive case analysis will probably require at least three readings. 2. Don’t get trapped into thinking the “answer” to the case is hidden somewhere in the case text. There is never a single answer to a case just as there is never a single marketing strategy that is...

A Job at S&S Air Chapter Case

...A job at S&S Air Chapter Case Click Link Below To Buy: http://hwaid.com/shop/a-job-at-ss-air-chapter-case/ You recently graduated from college, and your job search led you to S&S Air. Because you felt the company's business was taking off, you accepted a job offer. The first day on the job, while you were finishing your employment paperwork, Chris Guthrie, who works in finance, stops by to inform you about the company's 401(k) plan. A 401(k) plan is a retirement plan offered by many companies. Such plans are tax-deferred savings vehicles, meaning that any deposits you make into the plan are dedicated from your current pre-tax income, so no current taxes are paid on the money. For example, assume your salary will be $30,000 per year. If you combine $1,500 to the 401(k) plan, you will pay taxes on only $28,500 in income. No taxes will be due on any capital gains or plan income while you are invested in the plan, but you will pay taxes when you withdraw the money at retirement. You can contribute up to 15 percent of your salary plan. As is common , S&S also has a 5 percent match program. This means that the company will match your contributions dollar-for-dollar up to five percent of your salary, but you must contribute to get the match. The 401(k) plan has several options for investments, most of which are mutual funds. A mutual fund is a portfolio of assets. When you purchase shares in a mutual fund, you are actually purchasing partial ownership of the......

Future Correctional Problem S

...Retribution Retribution has been linked to increasing correction population because of its mentality toward people who commit crimes. Society believes that when a person commits a crime, he or she should be put into prison. When this happens, there will be an increase in the number of people in the prison system. Retribution is focused primarily on the crime, not the criminal. Society believes that when a person commits a criminal act, that person should be sentenced to the conditions and duration of a prison sentence. Researchers believes that ever retribution is a key factor of overcrowding because of the principle that every person who commits a felon should be sent to prison (Evans, 1999). Restorative Justice Restorative justice has been considered as a way of diminishing the overcrowding of prison, but unfortunately it has contributed to the problem by removing consequences, increasing repeat offenses, and embitters many people, which led to them committing criminal acts. Restorative justice depends on a third person to control the actions between a victim and the offender. Most time the offender will default on their agreement, and this will cause them to go unpunished. When this happens, a criminal will continue to commit criminal acts because he or she believes that nothing will be done. Prisons will continue to be overcrowded with prisons because restorative justice does not eliminate the......

Biddy`S Bakery Case Study

...Assignment1: Biddy`s Bakery Case Study Odontuya Erdenebileg Bus 515 Professor, Dr. Travis Davidson July 18, 2012 Explain the challenge Elizabeth faced in meeting her capacity needs and what she should have considered before moving into the larger facility. However, initially sales were slow at the beginning, after a few years Biddy`s Bakery began to attract an attention of customers thus, first floor of “Biddy`s” home couldn`t provide all demand. Therefore, Elizabeth decided to move larger facility. After Biddy`s Bakery moved into larger facility which is more capacity than needed, Elizabeth noticed that her sales volume had not been met with what she expected and she was paying for a facility with unused space. In my opinion, she should have calculate carefully how larger facility needs for Biddy`s Bakery, how much costs the location, and whether she can make more sales than now she is doing. In other words she needed to consider Capacity Planning. Capacity planning is the process used to determine how much capacity is needed in order to manufacture greater product or begin production of a new product. (Burack, E.H & Cassell, F. H. 1967). If she had considered it before moving into larger facility, she might choose the different place which is more convenient for Biddy`s Bakery`s capacity and thus, they were not spend money for useless expense. Business might have been successful. Determine what`s wrong with the proposal made by the team of the......
