 The company in question is being pressed by several of its customers to fulfill their orders faster.The company’s management estimates that the company stands to lose € 250,000 in revenue if they do not reduce their order fulfillment time below 40 working days. Adding one engineer to the existing team would reduce the time to design a hardware down to 14 working days (from 16 days). An additional engineer would cost the company € 50,000. On the other hand, hiring a second engineering team would cost € 250,000. Analyze these two scenarios and recommend an option to the company.


While analysing the two scenarios, It costs around €50000 for each additional engineer to finish the work in 16 days but it costs €250000 for hiring a engineering team, so If we hire three additional engineers it costs around €150000,
For example.
For 16 days to reduce 14 day company can hire one staff it cost €50000 so it means one staff can reduce 2 days , and 16 days reduce to 10 days company need only 3 staff , it means company can finish the work within 10 days and total cost 3x €50000. So its better to hire 3 engineers and we can reduce the number of working days with less cost.

 We consider a Level-2 IT service desk with two staff members. Each staff member can handle one service request in 4 working hours on average. Service times are exponentially distributed. Requests arrive at a mean rate of one request every 3 hours according to a Poisson process. What is the average time between the moment a service request arrives at this desk and the moment it is fulfilled?

Queueing theory gives us the following formulas for calculating the above parameters for M/M/1 models:

 Lq—The average number of jobs (e.g. customers) in the queue.
 Wq—The average time one job spends in the queue.
 W—The average time one job…...

...Brand association: It means what resides in the customer’s deepest mind. Brand association is anything which is deep seated in customer’s mind about the brand. Brand should be associated with something positive so that the customers relate your brand to being positive. Brand associations are the attributes of brand which come into consumers mind when the brand is talked about. It is related with the implicit and explicit meanings which a consumer relates/associates with a specific brand name. About Rolex, if we consider the upper portion then the brand association will be: 1. Watch. 2. People. 3. Sports. 4. Successful. 5. Highest quality. 6. Reliability. 7. Durability. 8.

EXECUTVE SUMMARY The idea of 5 STAR CATS was born from the necessity of Catalina of finding a friend to look after her cat during holidays. Luckily, one of her friends was available and willing to check on her cat but the solution was not perfect because the two of them haven’t met before and her friend was not knowledgeable about cats. Any cat owner knows how difficult it is to find a trusted sitter, who not only understands the needs of your pet and of the owner but with whom you are in confidence enough to give him the keys of your flat. Catalina was always reluctant to leave her cat in a hotel or to call a professional sitter, for the same reasons: “I would not leave my cat in the hands of a stranger and give him my keys. Ideally I wanted to be part of a network of...

...Please write an essay where you analyze “The importance of BPM for businesses” where you briefly describe the BPM Technology and its benefits for customers that use it. La idea es poder ver un documento escrito por ti, tras una investigación, que tenga componente técnico y una parte de negocio. THE IMPORTANCE OF BPM FOR BUSINESSES Introduction The purpose of this document is to find and analyze the elements of BPM that can create value to the businesses and show how to see that value can get reflected in better performance inside the organization also, explain how it can drive the organization to succeed in complex environments. What is BPM? BPM is more than a practice, it’s actually a discipline where software and services are exposed to the entire organization, starting a process of discovery and documentation, which will help to automate and continuously improve the business processes causing reductions in costs and increasing efficiency. A key element of adopting BPM is the fact that unifies every process with a single language across the organization this gives the possibility to every member inside of the company to understand and propose improvements from different point of view, which is called holistic view. Along with implementing a BPM, there are tools that are built to help an organization to document the process; those tools are repositories that are capable of managing the documentation, facilitating the maintainability and......

Bpmn Lab

...Week 3 Process Modeling Lab Seth Wenner Srw51@pitt.edu Questions 1. Describe your experience creating process models in this lab (e.g. Was the process easy/difficult/frustrating/trivial? Would you be able to create the diagram on your own with just a narrative? What were your biggest challenges?) The lab was fairly easy to complete. The software was intuitive enough to not require much of a learning curve. I think it would definitely be much more difficult to create a model from a narrative, especially with the more difficult model. I didn’t have any significant setbacks or challenges, the “hardest” part was finding shortcuts and better ways of doing things to speed up the process. 2. Assume you’re a new intern tasked with creating a process model that describes the accounts receivable collections process. Where would you look for information that describes the process that would allow you to create a complete process model that outlines everything from the time you first create the invoice to the time you receive payment from the customer? The first thing I would do is find the A.R. supervisor and interview them about the entire process from beginning to end. This would be a good start. After that I would try to follow a single invoice and track its entire journey through the system and make note of all possible paths and nuances of the process. 3. Give an example of a situation where a narrative would be more useful than a process model. A narrative......

Fundamentals of Bpmn

...such as Van der Aalst and Van Hee’s Workflow Management and Weske’s Business Process Management, both focused on process modeling, analysis and automation for computer scientists. At a more specialized level, one can find a range of books focusing on process modeling using specific languages—for example Silver’s BPMN Method and Style. Against this background, we decided it was time to put together our combined teaching experience in BPM in order to deliver a textbook that: • Embraces BPM as a cross-disciplinary field, striking a balance between business management and IT aspects. • Covers the entire BPM lifecycle, all the way from identifying processes to analyzing, redesigning, implementing and monitoring these processes. • Follows a step-by-step approach punctuated by numerous examples, in order to make the content accessible to students who have little or no BPM background. • Contains numerous classroom-tested exercises, both inside each chapter and at the end of the chapters, so that students can test their skills incrementally and instructors have material for classwork, homework and projects. • Relies on a mature and standardized process modeling language, namely BPMN. In the spirit of a textbook, every chapter contains a number of elaborated examples and exercises. Some of these exercises are spread throughout the chapter and are intended to help the reader to incrementally put into action concepts and techniques exposed in the chapter in concrete scenarios. These......

...compared to developed countries. Products as input Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a graphical representation for specifying business processes in a business process model. Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI) developed BPMN, which has been maintained by theObject Management Group since the two organizations merged in 2005. Version 2.0 of BPMN was released in January 2011,[1] at which point the name was adapted toBusiness Process Model and Notation as execution semantics were also introduced alongside the notational and diagramming elements. Contents   [show]  ------------------------------------------------- Overview[edit] Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a standard for business process modeling that provides a graphical notation for specifying business processes in a Business Process Diagram (BPD),[2] based on a flowcharting technique very similar to activity diagrams from Unified Modeling Language (UML).[3] The objective of BPMN is to support business process management, for both technical users and business users, by providing a notation that is intuitive to business users, yet able to represent complex process semantics. The BPMN specification also provides a mapping between the graphics of the notation and the underlying constructs of execution languages, particularly Business Process Execution Language (BPEL).[4] The primary goal of BPMN is to provide a standard notation readily understandable by all business......
