Company A – Automobile Manufacture When looking for a company that could be an automobile manufacturer, the first thing I looked for was large amount in receivables. When an individual purchase and automobile from a manufacturer rarely do they go ahead and pay the full amount for the car. Most customers will put some money down and finance this rest. This is the reason why I looked for a large amount in receivables. Company A had 31.7% in receivable with only 7.4% in cash. The other area I noticed about company A was the large amount of days it took to collect payments. Company B – Electric Utility When looking at company B the first area that jumped out to me was the collection period of 48 days. When electric company provides service and bills the customer for this service the customer typically has 31 days to pay the bill. Most electric companies will also allow the customer a 15 day grace period after the initial 31 days. This would be an average of 46 days to collect payment. Out of the 5 company’s B had the only reasonable amount of 48 collection days. Company B also had a high percentage of property plant and equipment which we be expected when one produces electric services for an entire city or state. Also when looking at industry standards electric utility companies had a standard debt/asset ratio of .61, company B had a ratio of .65. Company E– Supermarket Chain The main reasons for selecting supermarket chain were the large amount of cash on handand the large amount of inventory. When one buys groceries they either pay with cash or credit. Out of all the companies available to choose from a supermarket chain would be most likely to have the most cash on hand since most of their customers will be paying with cash. The other figure that stood out was the large amount of inventory on hand. Consider the amount of goods a supermarket chain must…...

Comparing Classes

...Thesis: When choosing classes for college comparing and contrasting the classes is very helpful. Online class vs. Traditional class is a common decision many college students have to make. I. Location -Workplace -Home -School II. Interaction -Friends -Teacher -Discussion III. Accessibility -online -In Classroom Comparing online classes to traditional classes’ people generally pick traditional, because that’s all they have ever known. These days, there are many different ways to access higher education. One can enroll in a traditional program, attending classes and accessing educational resources on campus. Someone can also enroll in an all-online program, in which the majority of your schoolwork and communications are completed via the Internet. Or there's the in-between option: Blended learning environments that combine on-campus and online coursework. Online courses typically allow students to work together, which means that they can complete their coursework at the time and place of their choosing. This is often ideal for working students or single parents who need a flexible schedule. However, students who struggle to be self-motivated may find that they quickly fall behind (Cooper).Of course; the primary reason you're in class is to learn and develop new skills. For some students, this can be very difficult without the direct, face to face input of an instructor. If a person doesn't learn well from books and other written material one may......

Square Mini Cooper Manufacture

...The mini cooper is a nationally loved vehicle so why not design an R/C unit to resemble it? It is sold in a variety of colours and has different generation of models ranging from the mini Austin to the popular Mk VII, this allows diversity! ‘Diversity + Manufacture = $$$PROFIT$$$’ (Rule of profit – buy cheap, sell high) Plastic granules are fed into the hopper, the plastic then melts from the emitted heat. Just like a syringe the melted plastic is injected to a mould creating your desire shape. This was used to create the car shell, chassis, driving gear, axel and the cover for the battery and motor.

This was used to create the car shell, chassis, driving gear, axel and the cover for the battery and motor. Manufacture is another key word in engineering; it basically means how to get the part for the unit from raw material to material that is needed. It can be broken down into 3 categories: material, method of process and labour. Different materials have different methods. A popular one for polymer is injection moulding. Your desired metal is pushed through a die making a wide metal become long and thin. This can save material cost and is fully automated. This was used to create the pulling rod and wiring for the......

Tsp Manufacture

...TRIPLE SUPER PHOSPHATE FERTILISERS –MANUFACTURE INTRODUCTION- Triple superphosphate is a fertilizer produced by the action of concentrated phosphoric acid on ground phosphate rock. The active ingredient of the product, monocalcium phosphate, is identical to that of superphosphate, but without the presence of calcium sulfate that is formed if sulfuric acid is used instead of phosphoric acid. The phosphorus content of triple superphosphate (17 - 23% P; 44 to 52% P2O5) is therefore greater than that of superphosphate (7 - 9.5% P; 16 to 22% P2O5). It is produced in granular and nongranular form and is used both in fertilizer blends (with potassium and nitrogen fertilizers) and by itself. TSP (Triple Super Phosphate) represented as 0-46-0, is normally applied where plants are grown in soils with low or average levels of phosphorus. Its importance can be measured by the fact that in absence or it, the root development is weak, growth is stunted, productivity drops, the leaves or the edges of the leaves turn purple and in plants like tobacco and cotton, the leaves turn an abnormal color of dark green; potato tubers develop brown spots etc.   Because it is a fertilizer with slightly acidic composition, its effect is limited in neutral or alkali soils. Because the phosphorus in its composition dissolved easily in water, it shows its effects rapidly. TSP is used as a base fertilizer. If it’s applied too early, the phosphorus in it combines with the lime and other......

Jit Inventory Helping Manufactures

...JIT Inventory Helping manufactures | Smiley II, Reginald Keith Jerome Bus 255 | JIT Inventory Helping manufactures | Smiley II, Reginald Keith Jerome Bus 255 | Reginald Smiley II Professor Thomasson Bus 255 November 24, 2014 JIT Inventory Helping Manufactures The globalization is forcing firms to be more careful about customer satisfaction and profit maximization. Logistics is one of the key tools that builds cost and service advantages to the firms. On the other hand, Just-in-Time (JIT) management approach, which is effective in the manufacturing sector in particular might be applied to the firms as a chance to achieve cost and service advantages through logistics. When the firms focus on the JIT for business processes but not products, the management principles of the JIT can be applied to logistics. JIT is an inventory management system based on placing smaller, more frequent, inventory orders. JIT can quickly reveal areas that need improvement, improve efficiency and productivity, free up additional workspace and free up more working capital. JIT inventory has helped manufactures be able to preserve parts flow so that inventories do not build up at any phase of the manufacturing process, allowing expeditious development and requiring active management of the production procedure. Just-in-time (JIT) inventory refers to an inventory management system with objectives of having inventory readily available to meet demand, but not to a point of excess where......

Comparing/Contrasting

...Your goal is to write an essay showing how two subjects are either similar or different (not both). When comparing subjects, show how they are similar. When contrasting them, show how they are different. In a comparison/contrast paper, be sure to develop a thesis that includes words that signal comparisons, such as “although,” “even though,” “in spite of,” “except for,” “not withstanding,” or “but.” Also, use appropriate transitions to signal comparisons and link paragraphs within the body of your paper, such as “on the other hand,” “in contrast,” “similarly,” “also,” “both,” “even though,” and “in the same way.” In order for two things to be worth comparing, the two things should initially appear to be different. In order for two things to be worth contrasting, the two things should initially appear to be similar. Comparing and contrasting are ways of exploring the similarities and differences between two things. 'Compare and contrast' is often used as a development strategy for essay assignments but it's a helpful strategy for any important decisions you have to make. Generally speaking, comparing is showing the similarities, and contrasting is showing differences between two things that are related in some way. For example, you wouldn't compare/contrast reading a book to driving a car, but you would compare reading a book to reading with an e-reader.

Comparing Stats

...Comparing Populations Using Statistical Inference Sunday, September 20, 2015 MBA 6018 | Capella University Practical Application Scenario 1 You are the manager of the Gander Mountain store in Frogtown, Illinois. Recently, a customer mentioned they believed your prices for ammunition were lower than the prices of Gander Mountain's primary competitor in hunting equipment, Cabela's. You would like to include that statement in a forthcoming print advertisement, so you need statistical evidence to support this assertion. * Identify the null and alternative hypotheses needed to test the contention. The null hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are lower than those of their top competitor, Cabela’s. The alternative hypothesis is that Gander Mountain’s prices for ammunition are not lower than Cabela’s. * Then, identify the most appropriate sample selection technique to gather data for testing the hypotheses. The best sample selection technique to use in this scenario would be random probability sampling. * What statistical test should you use to accept or reject this hypothesis using the data you will collect? I think that finding the average or mean prices of Gander Mountain’s ammunition would suffice. Practical Application Scenario 2 Your love of golf has brought you back to the range as the new product manager for UniDun's Straight Flight (SF) line of golf balls.

The Production and Manufacture of Aspirin

...The production and manufacture of Aspirin Aspirin is one of the most consumed painkillers created up to this date due to its reliability and low expense. It is often used to relieve minor aches and pains, reduce fever and as an anti-inflammatory medication. Due to its wide range of uses, the demand for this pharmaceutical is very high. As a result, manufacturers who produce this drug must be efficient in order to reduce the time taken to produce this drug and produce the in very high quantities. Industrial production of Aspirin is dependent on the company producing the drug; however the general method of production is known as slugging or dry-granulation. In this method, corn starch is mixed with pure water and is then heated and stirred till a transparent paste is formed. This paste is then mixed with lubricant and the active ingredient, which is acetylsalicylic acid in a machine called and Glenn mixer. This removes any air trapped in the mixture. This mixture is then separated into units known as slugs. Next, large batches of these slugs are filtered through a machine called a Fitzpatrick Mill. The remaining lubricant is then added to the mixture which is then blended in a rotary granulator. Finally, the mixture is compressed into tablets by a rotary tablet machine. The mixture is fed into a number of dye cavities on a steel plate. The mixture is then punched by two punches above and below the dye cavities. The punch above the dye cavity compresses the mixture into a...

Comparing Colonies

...in charge of and it soon became the life support of this colony and also made Jamestown money. So it’s evident that money was the driving force of this colony. In the colony of Maryland things were a bit different being that the people mostly held its attention to freedom of religion and not so much on money. It wasn’t until 1649 when restless Protestants adopted the “Act Concerning Religion” that this religious freedom came about. Maryland and Virginia were similar when it came to their work ethic. Like Virginia, Maryland also grew their tobacco and made their money on it but this colony wasn’t entirely base on or known for their riches because religious freedom is really what they sought and what was most important to them. In comparing these two colonies it’s apparent in what ways they differ from one another although they shared a common ground in the need of money for survival, but it’s in the importance of it and the priorities of religion that made them different....

...Pascal Debowiak Mrs. Morse Comparing/Contrast Essay 02/03/16 The Environmental benefits of bicycling There are numerous reasons to own a car. Every day people drive a car to get to work, visit friends, buy groceries and complete many other chores. We are, like it or not, dependent on automobiles. However, bicycles are often a useful alternative and are more environmentally friendly. A car is but also costly and often difficult to pay for. To begin with, buying a two-year old car is smarter than purchasing a new one. After a new car depreciates a couple years, it can be purchased for thousands of dollars less. But whether buying new or used, the car’s cost is only part of the expense. Paying for insurance, maintenance, gas, and repairs adds significantly to the expense. Being able to repair a car yourself helps keep costs down, but there still is an expense. Costs of purchase, maintenance and repair aside, automobiles have an adverse effect on the environment that bicycles do not. Even before a car is driven it consumes energy. Automotive production leaves a giant footprint because materials such as steel, rubber, paints, plastics, and glass must be created before a new ride is ready to roll. But that’s not all; air quality suffers because vehicles are America’s biggest air quality compromisers, producing about one-third of all U.S air pollution. The also contribute to global warming. These findings have caused engineers to develop more eco-friendly cars for the future.......

...Comparing Oedipus and Othello For Oedipus and Othello “duty” should have their first priority. Othello’s duty was supposed to be the importance of his marriage, but he listened to Iago, ignored Desdemona, didn’t believe his own conscience, and his own heart. Oedipus’ duty was to defeat the Sphinx(which he does) free Thebes from heavy taxes(which he does) be a great king of Thebes and be a good husband, but instead he offends Creon, his brother-in-law and uncle; insults his friend, Tiresias the blind prophet; kills his father; and destroys Jocasta, his mother and his queen. Fatal flaws demolished the lives of both Oedipus and Othello. Othello was so proud of his honor and bravery that he didn’t recognize his violent temper and Iago’s mind tricks. Oedipus was so proud of his cleverness that he tried so hard to escape his own fate. With all that said, these were honestly just a couple of comparable traits between Oedipus and Othello. When looking for a great leader that would lead your city through anything and everything it is not hard to tell that both Oedipus and Othello could be those leaders. Both had great gifts in leadership. They stood up in what they believed in. Each held exceptional accomplishments and both possessed the ability to be an all-around leader. Othello was a respectable citizen who was usually known for his fighting or war success. He knew how and what the goal was to succeed. Not all leaders knew that. Oedipus was also somewhat the same. He,......
