VARK and Multiple Intelligences Inventory assessments and answers to the questions on the syllabus:
1. Based on the descriptions in the text, where do you see yourself on the Kolb Inventory of Learning Styles?
Based on the descriptions in the text of the Kolb Inventory of Learning Styles I see myself as an active experimenter. I make decisions easily and enjoy solving problems. I enjoy applying what I have learned to see if I understood the material correctly and feel that I learn quickly. I am always ready to move quickly from thinking to action and get frustrated by those who take too much time acting on what they have been taught.
This coincides with the realistic category I fall into with the Holland Personality and Career types as I see myself as a concrete and practical doer. I prefer situations that involve action rather than verbal or interpersonal tasks and take a concrete approach to problem solving rather than relying on abstract theory.

2. After reading about the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, determine which personality is most like you.
On the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator I am an ESTJ:
Extravert –I am outgoing, gregarious, and talkative and find myself too talkative at times or intimidating to those who are shy or introverted.
Sensing- I am interested in the facts and see myself as practical, factual, realistic and down-to-earth.
Thinking- I see myself as a logical, rational, and analytical person. I tend to decide things relatively impersonally and objectively and I am less swayed by feelings and emotions. In all of my dealings, I need and value fairness.
Judging- I see myself approaching the world in a planned, orderly, organized way; I try to order and control my part of it as much as possible. I make decisions relatively quickly and easily because I like to make and follow plans. I am usually punctual and tidy and…...

...Ethics Awareness Inventory Octavio Landeros PSYCH/545 - Survey of Professional Psychology August 12, 2013 Instructor: Mary Mc Greevy Abstract The purpose of the summary is to elucidate the importance of a personal ethical perspective and to scrutinize the affiliation between professional and personal ethics in psychology. The summary will analyze by taking into account the results of the Ethics Awareness Inventory (EAI). Ethics Awareness Inventory In today’s society, there is a fine and invisible line among individuals and professionals: ethics. The meaning has become so multifaceted that people’s views about ethics have become unstable and broad. Ethics relate to moral principles to guide individuals and to teach them how to conduct themselves in society by differentiating between rightness and wrongness. The standard of right and wrong defines the aspect of ethics. Ethical dilemmas will arise and will bring a tangle of questions to the professional. The professional will wrestle with questions that will be hard to admit to themselves and others (Pope & Vasquez, 2011). It is human nature to make rushed decisions and mistakes makes humans question their professional and personal ethics. Ethics will help the professional answer those tangled questions. An ethical awareness will let the professional weigh the choices that will affect the lives of colleagues, the public, and the clients. An ethical awareness will free the professional from the restraining......

...Inventory management issues Inventory is the lifeblood of the supply chain. It is what flows from node to node. And at each node its critical to figure out that perfect balance of supply and demand or else suffer dire consequences, if you have too little inventory, you risk lost sales and customers from out of stock. If you have too much inventory, you will need more of everything, ore spaces, handling, transportation, money and labor. There are several companies that have inventory problems; one example of inventory management issues is Abercrombie. Performance has fluctuated over the past year mainly due to its inventory management issues. In early 2012, the retailer was struggling with excess inventory at its stores and had to usher in large scale promotions that weighed on its comparable store sales growth. Although the company tried to have a better control over its inventory in the subsequent months, the results remained the same. Due to a slower growth in its inventory levels, Abercrombie could not keep up with the market demand in Q1 fiscal 2013, which again dragged its comparable store sales down. Maintaining optimum inventory level is extremely important for a retailer. How the inventory is trending compared to the overall demand is something that investors should closely monitor. Abercrombie was fronting problems in managing its inventory which led to accumulation of merchandise at its stores. The retailer ushered in massive promotions which resulted in a......

Learning Team Inventory

...1. On the Kolb Inventory learning style I see myself to mostly be an accommodator. I very much so rely on my intuition and I tend to not read instructions unless I absolutely have to. Trial and error fits me to a T. I also think I am a diverger in my job because I supervise many people, and have learned how to think creatively with my emotions in order to relate to everyone. 2. Introversion, Sensing, Feeling, Judging (ISFJ). Some of the descriptions were right on, however the one I struggles with was Thinking versus Feeling. I feel that in my job, I am a thinker and a feeler. I generally don’t have a problem saying what I’m thinking to anyone; however I am very sympathetic when it’s called for. 3. In the VARK learning assessment, my highest score was in A (Aural). However, I ended up being multimodal. My stepping distance was 4, and the differences were only 2. In the Multiple Intelligences Inventory assessment, my highest score was in intrapersonal intelligence. In my workplace, I definitely am not a follower, I am much more of a leader. 4. The similarities between the surveys are that I am strong minded and focused. I like to figure things out on my own and get the job done. The differences are that though I do avoid crowds and loud places, I still appreciate other people’s opinions and feelings. 5. Of the 4 models, I liked the Kolb inventory the best. I feel that this knowledge will make me a stronger student because it told me that its ok to rely on my own...

...Company A having larger inventory than Company B. Company A (with larger inventory) will have the following advantages: * Lower ordering costs: For the raw materials they will be able to spread the fixed ordering costs over a larger amount of goods. * Quantity discounts: For the raw materials they would be better positioned to request quantity discounts because they would be ordering in bulk amounts. * Lower transportation costs: For the finished goods they will be able to reduce transportation costs because they can deliver more of the goods in one shipment versus having to deliver individual items. * Lower setup costs: For the work-in-process inventory they will be able to reduce setup costs that are incurred for switching between products. * Higher capacity utilization: With large inventory, they will be able to utilize their installed capacity to the maximum possible level. * Higher customer service: Provide better customer service by avoiding stock outs and backorders on finished goods. By avoiding these two scenarios they will be able to ensure on-time delivery. * Buffer: An excess inventory of finished goods can provide a buffer for increases in customer demand. The business is taking a risk by building and storing finished products in anticipation of customer demand, but it can reduce the lead time and improve customer satisfaction. Company B (with smaller inventory) will have the following advantages (has smaller inventory): * Less......

...CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Background of the Study Inventory is basically the total amount of goods and materials held in stock by a factory, store and other business. An inventory system is a process whereby a business keeps track of the goods and material it has available. In its simplest sense it can be done manually by a count at the end of each day. In this way it is possible to keep a record of the goods coming in to the business and goods being sold. (Chapter 1 Inventory System, 2011) Since manual inventory consumes a lot of time and is prone to errors, it would be helpful to build a system that will computerize the transactions from acquisition of the product description to updating the inventory database. The computerized inventory system will improve employees’ work efficiency by computerizing routinely and time consuming tasks such as the time spent in taking down product information. As a result, the time can be used in more productive activities. The accuracy of the current system will also be improved, since the computerized inventory system would eliminate the need of constantly encoding lengthy details of products by having an inventory database. Monitoring encompasses the tracking of individual processes, so that information on their state can be easily seen, and statistics on the performance of one or more process can be provided. The Baguio City Hall Monitoring and Inventory System for Supplies and Properties is a proposed system to......

...Student Name: | Topic Reflected on: Inventory | | Date: 3/22/2015 | | Discuss important issues an accountant must consider when accounting for inventory. Make sure you explain why it is an issue.An issue an accountant must consider is whether the goods that are in transit belong to the company in inventory or the customer. This issue is related to ownership of the goods to decide whether a sale has occurred or if it remains in inventory at the end of the period. Accountants must also consider the issue of valuing of inventory. This is an issue because records must be kept consistent when recording inventory so that it is fairly valued in accordance with the accounting method chosen such as, FIFO, LIFO, or weighted average method to determine the value of inventory. The inventory method chosen can results in different amounts for the cost of goods sold. Inventory detail can be an issue as it must be accurate related to FIFO and LIFO so when selling units the correct per price point is used for each method. Shrinkage costs can be an issue if the difference in current inventory costs are drastically different from the physical count. A drastic difference means there is high human error or theft of inventory. Determining which method will affect the income of a company and the taxes a company has to pay can be an issue depending on the company. If a company is trying to pay lower income taxes, the method chosen is directly related to the economic environment. ......

...3 phase approach to solid inventory record system o Design of the inventory record system and creation of the internal capabilities to put into place and keep it operating o Straightforward development of initial inventory balances o Ongoing operation and control of the inv record system, where responsibilities are defined and sources of errors can be located and eliminated. • measuring inventory accuracy needs to take into account tolerance. Might miss exact number on most of the items but might fall within the % variance of each item and then no problems. Thus overall inventory accuracy = (total accurate records / total records checked) *100 = % of accuracy • dollarizing value of firms inventory may be accurate to penny but that accuracy could hide appalling level of part specific inaccuracy. • tolerances may be set based on a products: o usage o dollar value o lead time o level in the bill of material o criticality o method of handling • most companies multiply usage by value in order to compute ‘dollars spent during the year for each part’. That typically will follow 80/20 rule. 80% of dollars spent per year will be on 20% of parts. Chart would be: ▪ Cost Class Parts Puchased % $ Spent % Tolerance % ▪ A 20 80 +/-0 ▪ B 30 15 +/-2 ▪ C 50 5 +/-5 • This however ignores the velocity......
