The Capital State Arena1
© The McGraw−Hill Companies, 2010 p.469
The Capital State Arena, located on the Capital State University (CSU) campus, is a new 20,000-seat arena that is a multipurpose building. Mainly for men’s basketball, there are also plans to hold commencement there and other university sporting events and functions. A theatrical lighting system is obviously needed to offer the flexibility to light these events correctly. As a main component to a top-quality lighting system, a controller or “console” is needed. The console is the brains of any lighting system, whether it has 10 lights or 300 lights.
The new arena will take the place of St. Patrick Arena, which was built in the 1960s. Although there periodically has been renovation to St. Patrick Arena, a theatrical lighting system has never been implemented.
NEED RECOGNITION
There is a need for a lighting console for the new facility. A professional theatrical lighting system was specified by the planning committee. Having the ability to conveniently adjust the lights to accommodate different events and different moods during events is a strong competitive weapon for selling the arena during the off-season. This type of lighting adjustment…...

A note – the below is my humble opinion – with testing – If you use my ideas please test them and if you have problems or learn more let me know. #1 - Stored Procedures (SPs) Inside SQL Server * Stored Procedures are precompiled Transact-SQL statements stored in a SQL Server database. * Stored Procedures are one of the most powerful pieces of programming you will ever see. When you start out, you will see them as a way to return a record set, or do some small update on your data. As you learn more about SPs you will understand why there are entire books written on the subject. SQL Server compiles the Proc so that when you run it, it runs as fast as possible. Once you write a couple of complicated SPs, you will be convinced. This paper only covers the tip of the Stored Procedure iceberg. * I will refer to Stored Procedures in this document as SP and Proc - get use to it. * Stored Procedures return read only data and can have > Input parameters > Output parameters > Parameters that are both input and output > Can have 1 or more recordsets Business & Computers, Inc.

...Essay Question #1: You recently retired from government contracting work and established a consulting company (fully consistent with government ethics laws and rules, of course) with the primary focus of advising potential government contractors and subcontractors. Mr. Johnny Jones, of The Johnny Jones Flooring and Construction Company has approached you with a question. Jones and his company are potential subcontractors (they, obviously, specialize in flooring) on a federal construction contract worth a little over two million dollars ($ 2,000,000.00) recently awarded to the Jimmy Smith Construction Company (Jimmy Smith, the prime contractor). Neither Johnny nor his company has ever been part of a government contract before. He wants to know the ramifications associated with being a subcontractor on such a contract. His specific concerns are with protecting his ability to directly protest issues and concerns through the various courts and agencies able to handle such protests. He is specifically concerned that he may be left with only the option of suing Jimmy Smith if anything goes wrong on the contract. He would also like to have some assurance that he will get paid if the prime contractor becomes insolvent. You have agreed to steer Johnny in the right direction. What do you tell him? Include the rationale for your advice. Essay Question #2: ITI Inc. was put under contract by the United States Air Force to develop a new command and control (C2) system for a new weapon......

...Title and Citation: US GAO Decision Matter of: Information Ventures, Inc. (FSI) Facts of the Case: Information Ventures, Inc. protested the decision of the Department of the Interior, Minerals Management Service (MMS), to issue request for proposals (RFP) for assessing health education methods, on an unrestricted basis. Information Ventures, a small business, contended that the requirement should be set aside for a small business. MMS published a presolicitation notice in May 2004 on the Federal Business Opportunities website on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP). MMS stated that the intent would be on an unrestricted basis pursuant to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 13.5, Test Program for Certain Commercial Items, a report that “draws[s] national attention to innovative health education methods and the commonalities of successful programs; and to provide a resource for those who are developing health education materials for youth ages 9-13.” The presolicitation notice prescribed a two-step process where interested offerors must demonstrate their ability to perform the work required in a capabilities statement. The capabilities statement would be reviewed by the agency and used to determine whether offerors were qualified and capable to execute the work. Then the agency sent requests for proposals to the offerors they qualified. Twenty offerors, including six small businesses,...

...Week 2- Case of the Pricing Predicament Scott, the salesman for Standard Machine, has just received a call from Joann, the purchasing agent for Occidental Aerospace. Occidental has been one of Standard’s largest and most loyal accounts. Following Standard’s fixed price policy, Scott submitted his bid at list price, $429K. Now Joann has called to inform Scott that his bid was not good enough. She told him that one other competitor had bid “under $390K” and another “a little over $400K”. She tells Scott that to win this business; he needs to cut his price by an additional $22K. Although this bid is only for one piece of equipment, Joann reminds Scott that the company will be building two new plants over the next four years, representing “a lot of potential business.” Scott has gone to his boss Tony, the sales manager, to ask for an exception to the fixed price policy. Why do you think Standard Machine is in this difficult situation with what was previously a loyal customer? What has changed? What would you do?  _____________________________________________________________________ I think Standard Machine changed their pricing policy to maximize their profit, but neglected to conduct adequate research on the product demand to determine its current value and use a value-based product pricing strategy. It appears the demand curve has changed, but Standard current policy doesn’t allow for a change and the loyal customer is not willing to pay the higher price. As sales......

Identify key production planning considerations (which, when and how much of each to produce, methods of dealing with short/long term changes in capacity demand). Tour A: International Paper, Androscoggin Mill’s central ordering department receives all orders and places them in open slots in their weekly production cycles. The manager of operations control must take into consideration how many machines are available, which ones run what process, and how long each process runs. The production schedule is very detailed but remains flexible to allow for changes. Demand for paper products is cyclical in nature and fluctuates with the economy. A linear program ran each quarter to optimize the schedule. Similar size orders were grouped together to eliminate as much waste as possible. Trucks and railcars also had to be scheduled for shipments. . Tour B: Norcen Industries key production considerations would be scheduling. As a “job shop” they create a wide variety of products to fulfil customer orders. The production manager must make sure the workers were assigned and understood the correct tasks. Assigning the best operator to perform certain tasks help keep costs down and machines running efficiently. On-time deliveries are important to receive repeat orders. Small jobs were given preference to expedite billing. As drops in demand......

...Phillip Eugene Wendling, Appellee, v. Ted Puls and George Watson, Appellants Procedural history In the case of Wendling versus Puls and Watson, sued Puls and Watson for “breach of oral contract for the sale and purchase of cattle.” Wendling was awarded $14,755.02, in 1980 for this breach. This case was appealed and was affirmed by the appeals court. Facts This began on August 13, 1973, in Hutching, Kansas, when Wendling called Puls, a frequent buyer of cattle, to inform him that he had 103 heads of cattle for sale. Puls associated himself with Watson, a veterinarian, for financial assistance and the two drove to Wendling’s farm to inspect the cattle. Wendling and Puls agreed on 61 cents a pound for 98 heads and 59 cents a pound for the remaining five heads. Watson gave Wendling a $1000 check as down payment for 103 cattle. When it was time to deliver the cattle, no one showed up to receive them. Issue Were both parties aware of the contract? Was the contract enforceable and were the damages calculated correctly? Answer/Holding Yes for each question. The court decided that Puls and Watson breached the contract by failing to take delivery of the cattle on the day specified and submitting final payment (see Kansas statute 84-2-703). Reasoning The court decided the way they did because, Wendling made multiple attempts to reach the buyers for delivery of the cattle, but Puls was either too busy or not available to take the call. Also, Wendling asked to be......

...Case Study #2: Pacific Oil Company PROC 5840: Pacific Oil Case Study 30 Sep 2013 Abstract This paper assesses a negotiation between Pacific Oil Company, a seller of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), and Reliant Chemical Company, a buyer of VCM. Each negotiation team’s strengths and weaknesses will be assessed. The Pacific Oil strengths included their negotiation team and the strength of the VCM market. Their weaknesses included poor organizational control, managerial decision making, and their failure to recognize the changing interests of Reliant Chemical and selection of a negotiation strategy. Reliant Chemical strengths were assessed as a strong organizational relationship and management decision making. It recognized, resolved and or reconciled the changing interests of Pacific Oil, derived the best approach for the negotiation, determined the relationship with the other negotiator(s), and selected the appropriate strategy and tactics.

...Supply Chain Network Analysis and Design: Location Analysis PROC 5820 7 May 2014 Summary The principal thesis of this paper is to discuss location analysis and its role in supply chain network analysis and design. The emphasis of site location is of strategic importance to all organizations seeking to maximize profits and minimize costs. The logistics/supply chain network design has six major planning steps in the process of designing a comprehensive logistics/supply chain network: The first step is to define the logistics/supply chain design process. The second step is to perform a logistics/supply chain audit. The third step is to examine the logistics/supply chain network alternatives. The fourth step is to conduct a facility location analysis, followed by the fifth step, which is to make decisions regarding network and facility location. The sixth and final step is to develop an implementation plan. Location analysis is also discussed in terms of the advantages and disadvantages of globalization and major location site factors. The discussion then describes the methods for evaluating major location site factors and making location decisions based on the evaluation. The paper concludes with discussing different modeling approaches and the need for comprehensive planning.

Key- Proc 5830 Pricing

...1. You are considering purchasing a personal computer. What factors would affect your price sensitivity in making the decision? How would those same factors affect the price sensitivity of some personal computer buyers differently? Some of the factors that affect price sensitivity is brand name, quality of product, features and attributes, warranty and guarantee as well as customer service offered by company, etc. These factors can affect price sensitivity of other buyers in a different manner. For example, brand may not appeal in the same manner to everyone. A brand conscious buyer will be heavily affected by product's brand whereas a buyer who is more focused on technology will be less conscious by brand name of the product. 2. What can a company do to decrease its customer’s price sensitivity? Would all of the customers be likely to react in the same way? They can reduce customer's price sensitivity by clearly highlighting the superior quality, unique product or service attributes and value proposition to customers via the marketing campaign. All the customers may not behave in the same manner because value proposition for one customer varies from another's value proposition or in other words, purchase criteria for one customers is different from another customer. 3.

...What is the importance of a diversified workplace? Although some people think that diversity does nothing but create problems and challenges, it offers remarkable benefits. While legal ground for diversity was and continues to be one motivating factor in organizations seeking to achieve employee diversity, profits and ultimately long-term success will become the new motivators. Educating managers and staff on how to work effectively in a diverse environment helps organizations prevent discrimination and promote inclusiveness. There is evidence that managing a diverse workforce well can contribute to increased staff retention and productivity. It can enhance the organization’s responsiveness to an increasingly diverse world of customers, improve relations with the surrounding community, increase the organization’s ability to cope with change and expand the creativity of the organization. Good management of diversity can: increase productivity, enhance innovation, and improve the organization’s ability to maneuver in an increasingly competitive, complex and diverse environment. Companies that have managers who are equipped to successfully leverage the distinct and rich talents and skills and knowledge of all employees will not only avoid drains on profitability; they will actually attain a number of strategic benefits. Tapping into diversity is ESSENTIAL for success in any business. Diversity breads creativity and creativity drives innovation. To be successful in business...
