Johnny Bennett, President of Flashy Flashers, Inc. (FFI) produces automotive electrical components supplying an estimate of 95 stores that sell auto parts (Krajewski, L., Malhotra, M., & Ritzman, L., 2013). FFI has grown since initial existence, employing 125 administrative and managerial personnel as well as 900 staff. During FFI’s growth, two products have become the staple of firm due to increased demand, the headlamp and sidelamp. Due to the increased in sales, the decision was made to install an MRP system with the future goal of transferring to an ERP system. Although the MRP system was working, the decision was made to find a system that would exceed expectations.

Analysis

The analysis indicates that the MRP report shows a shortage. The shortages were resulting from having poor timing with the scheduled releases. By moving forward promptly, the scheduled receipt will document the information so that the imbalances can be corrected. There is no indication if the scheduled receipt could be pushed through quicker. FFI also has a concern as there is no formal plan is in place to ensure that the MRP is being used efficiently. There are also complaints from the shop supervisor that there is no certainty when it comes to scheduled receipts. As the concerns arise the MRP system was put in place to alleviate the problems in knowing that the system has more advantages. An advantage of the MRP system is that it allows scheduling the proper amount of staff according to the demand. The analysis shows that FFI worked together in obtaining information regarding the concerns to develop a strategy and acknowledged that the company needs to take the MRP system a step further. Appendix 1 will provide an overall view of the planned order release schedule and MRP records for both the Headlamps and Sidelamp.

Conclusion

After further analysis, it is…...

...Levi’s advertising efforts? How did it contribute to brand equity? Dockers’ communication strategy had multiple aspects at the time of launch which included branding, introduction to retailer and advertising strategy Branding Strategy: Branding strategy was to establish an independent line of casuals which can leverage the Levi‘s brand name. It was an independent to attract new customers aged less than 25 years and was to leverage the Levi’s name to retain the baby boomers who were moving away from Jeans and were looking for an alternative pants for their changed life style. They tried to create a new category by even reaching out to corporate HR department to make a mindset shift that casuals was a new way to dress in America. The pocket flasher used the emotional aspect to show that even women are attracted to man dressed in casuals instead of a formally dressed man. Retail Trade: The idea was to utilize the Levi brand but still create a separate category that is quite distinct from the jeans. It concentrated distribution in department stores and chains from JCPenney to Bloomingdale’s to retailer it curtailed business it past. They provided sales support to retailers and also created a Dockers shop with the department store with pants displayed folded, very similar to Jeans. Advertising Strategy: This was the major portion of communication strategy which portrayed Dockers as a pant for every occasion. They used focus groups to determine the scenes that could be used......

Information Technology

...upgrade to a newer version of DOS without changing the BIOS. PC BIOSes that can handle Plug-and-Play (PnP) devices are known as PnP BIOSes, or PnP-aware BIOSes. These BIOSes are always implemented with flash memory rather than ROM. 2. How do you flash your BIOS ? To flash your BIOS you'll need a) a flasher, and b) a data -file. The flasher programs the data-file into the BIOS chip. Boot to the DOS prompt, either using a CLEAN boot disk or Safe Mode DOS Prompt. Type the following at the DOS prompt, where xxx is the name of the BIOS file you downloaded: awdflash xxx.bin (for Award BIOSs) amiflash xxx.bin (for AMI BIOSs) mrflash xxx.bin (for MRBIOSs) Notes: Most flashers will ask you to save the current BIOS. Choose Yes, so that you can always flash back to the original version if you're having problems with the new one. _____________________________________________________________________ 15 Basic Input Output System - BIOS Some manufacturers may use their own utilities to upgrade the BIOS (mostly non-clones) Disable the System BIOS Cacheable option in the BIOS before flashing. Do NOT flash under Windows or any OS other than plain DOS. By using the switch /? (eg. awdflash /?) the flasher will display all available switches. 3. Can something go wrong during flashing ? Yes, if you use the wrong flash BIOS, or have a power outage, or have a defective chip, there is chance that your computer WILL NOT BOOT. We recommend not to flash unless absolutely necessary. 4.

Sci/201 Cam Therapies

...when searching for information I look for professionalism in a website. Medical references, scholarly articles and a professional look are the three most important criteria in judging the credibility and reliability of the source. Medical references from medical doctors, certified trainers and practicing physicians make the site view reliable. Scholarly notes such as books and newspaper articles with references make the site credible by adding a source of knowledge. A professional look is the first thing that is noticed when skimming a website. This look does not contain cheap advertisements and flashy commercials. The three requirements for a credible and reliable source of CAM information is portrayed on the Nancy Russell Energy Therapy site. A reading list is provided with multiple scholarly articles and a list of recommendations from energy therapy guides. There are no flashy advertisements or commercials and the look is overall very professional. "The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering the attitudes of their minds." (Albert Schweitzer.) A consumer’s beliefs and attitudes towards Complementary and Alternative Medicine could hinder the reliability and credibility of providers. If an individual expects negative results and experiences a CAM therapy with a closed mind then they may not be open to the benefits the therapy could bring them. These individuals might nay say and advertise false words against......

Salsa Dancing

...the ‘60s and ‘70s the salsa spread to other parts of Latin America like Colombia and Venezuela. Throughout the ‘70s, in an area in south-west Colombia called “Metropolis”, emerged as an important new center for salsa dance and music. This area was known as “the world salsa capital”. Types of Salsa Dance Salsa has been made into different forms of dance. I will briefly discuss the various types of dancing that available. Now, most of us have seen or maybe even experienced some form of Latin dance. The most popular and flashy of the salsa dancing is the L.A. Style. This form of Salsa is very flashy that uses dips and flips. L.A. Style is definitely great to watch, with the women being very sensual and the men tend do to a lot of jumps, flips and spins. Cuban Style is based of the rhythms of the music. It is also a non-partnered dance, which is optional. This style of dancing is also very male dominated because the men do more of the flashy dances than the women. The last dance that is awesome is the Colombian Salsa. The Colombian Salsa is danced differently throughout Colombia. This style of Salsa is calmer, closer, where both dancer’s bodies are almost touching one another. Conclusion In this essay, I provided a brief history of Salsa, and a few of the dance styles that are available today. Salsa dancing is a very appealing social dance that can be learned by anyone of all ages. The teachings of Salsa dancing are unique and vary but with enough......

Flashy Flashers

...Flashy Flashers Flashy Flashers is a medium-sized firm that produces a line of automotive electrical components. It employs about 900 people and was founded by Johnny Bennett, who started in his garage producing cable assemblies. It supplies Moonbird Silverstreak car dealers in the region, as well as, about 95 auto parts stores. The company’s two most profitable products are the automotive front sidelamp and the headlamp. Recently they had implemented a new MRP system, which has helped the business and seems to be working fairly well. I wanted to see if there was any room for improvement for the company. The recurring problem I found after speaking with several managers was that the MRP system did not include priority and capacity reports that would show updates on due dates for scheduled receipts. The production and inventory control manager suggested that this be included. The shop supervisor complained that the work was not level by any means, stating that some weeks his workers are struggling to find work to do, and others they have to work overtime because of all that is required. The purchase manager said that the buyers had no time for creative buying because they are spending so much time on orders that are needed almost immediately and are sometimes even late. He also stated that the planned lead times are realistic, but one week they are fine, and the next there is a rush order that needs to be placed. Analysis After speaking with these managers, I......

The side-by-side format used in JSA worksheets is not an ideal one for instructional purposes. Better results can be achieved by using a narrative-style communication format.

...descriptions, prices, sales rankings, customer reviews, inventory figures, and countless other layers of content. In all, it was a data vault that Amazon had spent more than 10 years and a billion dollars to build, organize, and safeguard. So why on earth would Bezos suddenly hand over the keys? Because in the hands of top Web innovators, some at the meeting argued, Amazon’s data could be the dynamo of new websites and businesses that would expand the company’s already gigantic online footprint and ultimately drive more sales. Others worried about the risks. A free-forall, one manager warned, would “change our business in ways we don’t understand.” Bezos ended the debate with characteristic gusto. He leaped from his seat, aping a flasher opening a trench coat. “We’re going to aggressively expose ourselves!” he declared. Today, there’s considerable reason to cheer Bezos’ exhibitionist move. Since the company opened up its data vaults in 2002 under the auspices of a project first called Amazon Web Services, more than 65,000 developers, businesses, and other entrepreneurs have tapped into the data. With it, FIGURE 5.1 Amazon and eBay have opened up many of their databases to developers and entrepreneurs to broaden and facilitate the buying and selling process for their associates and customers.

...To: Flashy Flashers Management From: David Oberlin Subject: MRP Explosion Date: 09/15/15 Flashy Flashers MRP Schedule Flashy Flashers is a manufacturing company that produces automotive electrical components. Founded by Johnny Bennett in his garage, Flashy Flashers has grown to supply about 95 auto part stores in the region. With Flashy Flashers success they understood they would have to do a better job at managing inventory levels and production. Kathryn Marley has instituted a Material Requirements Planning System (MRP) that has worked fairly well, but there are still several issues. Flashy Flashers is experiencing a shortage in multiple products causing bottlenecks, radical labor demand hours and wasted labor hours, which could reduce their profitability. This analysis will evaluate the current Master Production Schedule (MPS), identify certain action items, possible causes for concern, and recommend best practice moving forward. MRP Explosion I have completed a six week MRP Explosion for Flashy Flashers two most profitable products, the automotive front side lamp and the headlamp (Appendix A). During week 1 of production, we will need to place orders for 10 different components used to make these two products. One of the most critical orders is for the C310P Back Rubber Gasket, which is used in both products. A lot size of 180 would not be sufficient for the week 3 forecast demand. Therefore, we must order two lots totaling 360 units. Another critical......

...Week 3 WSJ Article Investors Punish Mexican Marketer After Earnings Miss; Company, known for flashy ads, spurs doubts about brands’ strength Genomma Lab Internacional is a consumer-good company based out of Mexico. It is known for its personal care items ranging from deodorants to hair shampoo. The company gets a lot of attention for the risqué television commercials that air on local airwaves which are also questionable in nature and ability. This has led to Mexico’s consumer-protection agency to review and fine Genomma for false advertising, as they cannot prove that their products can perform as they claim. Genomma “blames the fines on behind-the-scenes campaigns by less nimble competitors who complain to authorities after losing market share” (Guthrie, 2015, p. 3).In such a competitive world, a company’s brand image is crucial. “Sometimes a brand is memorable because of the little things” (Geller, 2012, p. 2). The little things are what gets the consumer’s attention. A company needs to make sure those little things are beneficial and not detrimental to their brand, otherwise, it can really hurt them. Genomma’s choice of flashy and exaggerated advertising, in both commercials and packaging, has made for some memorable branding, however, it may be costing them in brand equity. Sofia Robles, an analyst with Intercam, asserts that “the market has lost all confidence in the company” (as cited in Guthrie, 2015, p. 1). Investors are worried about the strength of the......

Now I know that it was not probable cause. The second time I was on my way to the hospital and I was riding behind the ambulance that my grandma was in, with my flashers on and I got pulled over pulling into the parking lot, the officer got out and said madam why were you riding with your flashers on and I told him that my grandma was being rushed to the hospital by ambulance and I needed to be with her so I rode behind the ambulance with my flashers on so the officer said have you been drinking and I said no sir I’m only 18, at that time he said do you mind if I search your vehicle and of course I said yes so he searched and found nothing and gave me a breath alayzer and I registered 0.00. So after and one hour he said ok madam have a good evening. So yes they will tell you they have probable cause when they really don’t. In conclusion to obtain a search warrant a police officer must first prove before the judge that probable cause exist (Neubauer, 2004).
