Many Chinese companies provide “dormitories” for their workers requiring employees to remain there away from their families and to work 10 to 12 hours a day 6 days a week at very low wages.  Saturdays are considered a normal business day throughout Chinese industry.  Employees are allowed to visit their families one weekend per month though many cannot do so since their families live too far away.  In other words, how
Foxconn (Apple’s subcontractor) is treating workers is quite normal in China.

In the Discussion Board comment on these issues and questions:

  • Compare and contrast Apple’s and HP’s approach and the conditions at their respective suppliers Foxconn and Quanta.
  • What improvements has Foxconn made since the original story?  How effective do you think those improvements have been?  What do you think of the progress that has been made?  Should Apple have been criticized for the working conditions at Foxconn?  Why or why not?  Should they still be criticized?
  • What ethical responsibilities does Apple have towards Foxconn’s workers in China? What should Apple do now, if anything?  Should Apple and HP hold their suppliers to host country standards (i.e., China), home country standards (i.e., US) or something in between?  Why?

The Fine Garments Company, business and finance homework help

The Fine Garments Company sells fashion clothing. The forecasted annual demand for their premium leather jacket is 2,000. The order-processing cost per order is $40, and the inventory holding cost is $35/item/year. How many leather jackets should they order in one shipment?

The Fine Garments Company wants to use a reorder point system. To allow for uncertainties in delivery and customer demand, it wishes to hold four weeks of demand as safety stock. What should its reorder point be if the delivery lead time is two weeks, based on the calculated order quantity?

Design a periodic inventory control system for the Fine Garments Company if it wishes to hold five weeks of demand as safety stock. If on a review the inventory of the premium leather jacket is 102, how many leather jackets should be ordered?

Marketing Plan, Assignment help

Marketing Plan, Assignment help

Need marketing plan and only marketing budget in excel file (Company name is Jan’s Herbal Teas)

Assignment 2: Marketing Plan

This assignment consists of two (2) sections: a marketing plan and sales strategy, and a marketing budget. Note: You must submit both sections as separate files for the completion of this assignment.

For the first six (6) months your company is in business—to give you time to perfect your product and to learn from actual customers—you will start marketing and selling in your own community, a radius of twenty-five (25) miles from where you live.

For most non-alcoholic beverages, marketing (as opposed to the actual product itself) is key to success. Cola drinks, for example, are fairly undifferentiated, as are many energy drinks, juices, bottled water, and the like. Companies producing these types of beverages differentiate themselves and attract market share through marketing and brand awareness—both of which are critical to success.

Section 1: Marketing Plan & Sales Strategy (MS Word or equivalent)

Write the three to five (3-5) page Marketing Plan & Sales Strategy section of your business plan, in which you:

  1. Define your company’s target market.
    1. Analyze the types of consumers who will be drinking your beverage in demographic terms (i.e., age, education level, income, gender, ethnic group, etc.). Support your analysis with actual data on the size of the demographic groups in your local community (nearby zip codes).
    2. Outline the demographic information for your company specified on the worksheet in the course text (p. 107 | Demographic Description).Click here for help accessing a specific page number in your eBook.
      • Hints: At American FactFinder (http://census.gov), you will find demographic information on potential consumers in your area. If you are selling through other businesses (such as grocery stores), indicate the number of those businesses in your local area. You will find information about such businesses in your local area at County Business Patterns (http://www.census.gov/econ/cbp/). Check Chapter 2 of Successful Business Plan for more research sources.
  2. Assess your company’s market competition.
    1. Use the factors listed in the course text graphic (p. 123 | Assess the Competition) to assess your company’s market competition.
    2. Defend your strategy to successfully compete against market leaders in your segment.
      • Hints: For example, in the soft drink market, it is intimidating to try to compete against Coke and Pepsi. Newcomers in mature markets typically must pursue niche markets or even create new market categories, as Red Bull did with energy drinks.
    3. Defend your plan to differentiate yourself from the competition using the information detailed on the worksheet in the text (p. 131 | Market Share Distribution).
      • Hints: Every business faces competition and the non-alcoholic beverage market is an especially crowded market.
  1. Clarify your company’s message using the information provided on the worksheet in the text (p. 160 | The Five F’s).
    • Hints: Before you choose your marketing vehicles, you must determine the message you want to convey through those vehicles.
  1. Identify the marketing vehicles you plan to use to build your company’s brand. Justify the key reasons why they will be effective. Provide examples of other non-alcoholic beverage companies that use these tactics effectively.
    • Hints: If you plan to use online marketing tactics, refer to the worksheet in the text (p.171 | Online Marketing Tactics) to aid your response. Remember that even if you’re selling through grocery stores you need to build your brand and social media is a major part of that in regard to beverages. Some of the marketing tactics that beverage companies use include: sampling in grocery stores, building a following on social media, sponsoring events, exhibiting at trade shows attended by retailers, and so on. You will use a combination of these tactics. For example, if you decide to give out samples in grocery stores, promote your sampling on your social media networks and those of the grocery store.
    • Hints: If you are planning to distribute through resellers, describe how you plan to reach them, for example, through industry trade shows or by establishing your own sales force. For information on trade shows, visit the Trade Show News Network (http://www.tsnn.com). You can exhibit or network at these shows.
  1. Format your assignment according to these formatting requirements:
  • Cite the resources you have used to complete the exercise. Note: There is no minimum requirement for the number of resources used in the exercise.
  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.

Section 2: Marketing Budget (MS Excel worksheets template)

Section 2 uses the “Business Plan Financials” MS Excel template (see: Course Required Files in Week 1). Use the “Business Plan Financials Guide” (see: Course Required Files in Week 1) to support your development of the Marketing Budget.

  1. Complete the Marketing Budget worksheet for your company.
    • Hints: The goal of the marketing budget is to help you determine how much it will cost you to reach your market and achieve your sales goals.
    • Hints: When filling out the “Marketing Budget” worksheet in the Excel spreadsheet:
      • Begin in the current year and complete a marketing budget for the first year of your business. The information you enter in the marketing budget spreadsheet will flow through to your “Income Statement” in the Business Plan Financials.
      • Leave the number at zero (0) for any marketing vehicles you do not intend to use.
      • Remember that all marketing activities involve costs. If social media represents a significant portion of your marketing, assume you will have cost of advertising and that should be reflected on your budget. Even if a social media site charges nothing to use it, you will need to use company resources to manage the site, pay someone to execute your social media marketing campaigns, and will most likely pay for ads on that site.
      • Do NOT leave the “Marketing Budget” blank, assuming you will not have any marketing costs.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Recommend effective business strategies based on an analysis of domestic and global operating environments, market dynamics, and internal capabilities.
  • Analyze competitive positions including foreign market entry and the resulting impact on business strategy.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in strategic management.
  • Write clearly and concisely about strategic management using proper writing mechanics.

Accounting discuss

Accounting discuss

I do not want you to be pressured by other responses. Do your best and realize that if you have put thought into your answer and you support your answer, you will receive full credit.**

The following excerpt is from a conversation between Kate Purvis, the president and chief operating officer of Light House Company, and her neighbor, Dot Evers.

Dot: Kate, I’m taking a course in night school, “Intro to Accounting.” I was wondering—could you answer a couple of questions for me?

Kate: Well, I will if I can.

Dot: Okay, our instructor says that it’s critical we understand the basic concepts of accounting, or we’ll never get beyond the first test. My problem is with those rules of debit and credit … you know, assets increase with debits, decrease with credits, etc.

Kate: Yes, pretty basic stuff. You just have to memorize the rules. It shouldn’t be too difficult.

Dot: Sure, I can memorize the rules, but my problem is I want to be sure I understand the basic concepts behind the rules. For example, why can’t assets be increased with credits and decreased with debits like revenue? As long as everyone did it that way, why not? It would seem easier if we had the same rules for all increases and decreases in accounts. Also, why is the left side of an account called the debit side? Why couldn’t it be called something simple … like the “LE” for Left Entry? The right side could be called just “RE” for Right Entry. Finally, why are there just two sides to an entry? Why can’t there be three or four sides to an entry?

  1. After listening to the conversation between Kate and Dot, help Kate answer Dot’s questions.
  2. What information (other than just debit and credit journal entries) could the accounting system gather that might be useful to Kate in managing Light House Company?
