Audio Duplication Services

...Audio Duplication Services Inc. California State University Northridge Executive Summary In today's economy, the majority of companies are aiming toward building Retailer-Supplier Partnerships (RSP). An example of such concept is the utilization of vendor-managed inventory (VMI). In this relationship, the supplier decides on the retailer’s appropriate inventory levels of each product and establishes the inventory policy. Moreover, the retailer does not own the merchandise until it is purchased by a consumer, while the supplier owns the inventory until the transaction is completed. The obvious benefit to the retailer is lower inventory costs, whereas the benefits to the supplier are less clear. The following example will look at how big national retailers are putting pressure on its supply base to engage in such RSP relationships. Audio Duplication Services (ADS) is a compact disc and cassette duplication and distribution company. Their main customers are the big record companies. ADS manages the master tapes and duplicates them upon customer requests. In turn, they distribute them to their customer’s music stores, distribution centers, and department stores. Some of the big national retailers include Wal-Mart, K Mart, Circuit City and Best Buy. These national retailers are currently pushing the record companies to implement VMI agreements. The record companies will be provided point-of-sale data from each of their store. The record companies would then decide how......

Dim Lighting

...Case 3: The Dim Lighting Co. The Dim Lighting Co. (heretofore known as Dim) is challenged with several macro-level problems. Primarily, low cash flow and decreasing profit margins are an important concern. Also, the management team (i.e., Dr. Spinks, P. Newell, B. Boswell, and C. Preston) seems prone to in-fighting and name calling. For example, Preston refers to scientists (i.e., Spinks) as “prima donnas.” At the micro-level, Dim’s General Manager, West, is quite concerned about his tenure at the company due to his company’s performance during the previous year. He is worried about what will happen to his job security if the coming year is unsuccessful as well. Also, Spinks, director of R&D, is reported to be “autocratic, strong-willed, and impatient,” and he seems to be quick to resign when dissatisfied with the degree of innovation present within his location. Now, with Spinks’s new project as a possible panacea for Dim’s dilemmas, there is much resistance to going forward with development due to extant monetary worries. Also, the new project is not a guaranteed success, and it is difficult to determine if the payoffs are worth the risk in investment. The causes for the problems at Dim are multiple and varied. First, the organizational culture seems to be split. Some management primarily focuses on the “bottom line”, while others focus on innovation competitiveness. This creates great conflict when new ideas and change and proposed. Dim’s culture (with the......

Dixo Audio Systems

...Answers to Textbook Case – Dixon Audio Systems 1. Identify the pros and cons of a JIT relationship from a supplier’s point of view. A supplier such as D&S can obtain several benefits from establishing a JIT relationship with a buyer such as Dixon. Usually, such relationships are longer term, more cooperative, and with a small set of vendors. D&S will then have a more certain, steady demand for their product. They should also have more accurate forecasts further into the future. Besides these demand benefits, D&S could improve its production and distribution efficiency. Better knowledge of the size and timing of orders would allow them to plan operations more efficiently. As they are responsible for much of the ordering, they can better coordinate their operations with the order cycles. However, D&S does have some reasons to be concerned also.. The relationship shifts supply responsibility to D&S. The guaranteed business would be at risk if D&S were to forecast or perform poorly. Further, the responsibility for placing orders in now a D&S paid employee. 2. Identify the pros and cons of a JIT relationship from a buyer’s point of view. A buyer, such as Dixon, can obtain many relationships from a JIT relationship with a supplier. Order timing becomes the responsibility of the vendor. Quality should improve and deliveries should become more reliable. Through better coordination, the supplier’s costs should improve, which may eventually be reflected in......

Audio Convergence

...Audio Recording Convergence and the Digital Age Final Project Abstract With information technology advancements and a more computer savvy world, the audio recording medium and digital medium have merged, changing the sound recording industry forever. This convergence has blurred the line between professional and amateur sound recordings. Technology has made new products smaller, feature rich and more affordable where anyone can record their music and offer it on the web for the whole world to enjoy. This medium convergence has closed the gap between musicians and listeners and brought forth a famine in the recording industry, which in turn, has brought new opportunities to the dying market. What does this mean to us? In short terms, with new digital formatting software available to anyone, the compression of music waves, and the technological advances, the recording industry is struggling to stay afloat. This statement is pretty remarkable, being that the world’s leading recording engineers are having difficulties keeping business alive with the evolution of technology. It is evident, recording engineers need to step backwards to differentiate themselves and find better innovative ways to keep the recording business profitable. This transformation in the world of recording, is affecting all of us as both consumers and producers of audio content. The following research paper discusses these convergence changes with a short look into......

Dim Lighting Case

...Carl Vitale MG350 Case Analysis: The Dim Lighting Co. I. Problems a. Macro – the problems for this organization on a large scale are pretty easy to see from the case. The company failed to meet its operating targets. This has caused them to decline financially, but also limits their ability to take risks that would help them to research and design new technology to get them back into the market. That means that when Mr. Spinks has an idea that would normally be a great opportunity for the company to jump out in front of its competitors, instead of immediately jumping into that project, they must first consider all options. Their situation makes the endeavor, and ones like it, far more risky than they should be. b. Micro – on a smaller scale, the companies head of R&D, Mr. Spinks, faces a problem of his own when he comes up with an idea for a new type of lamp that he believes could be the next step up from LED lighting. This is obviously a huge idea, and a big risk to any company. This company however, also happens to be struggling, making it necessary for the organization to discuss all possible risks before agreeing that it is the right idea. This is a typical high-risk, high-reward situation. If Dim Lighting decided to take a risk and put money into developing and producing this new product, they have to be confident that it will in fact be the next big thing. If not, the organization could lose all the money they had put into the project, which......

Lighting and Consumers

...Lighting and Consumers Every electronics store model the marketing of their products in very similar forms. If you are looking for a television set, chances are you will go to the electronics section of the store only to find a whole wall full of mounted sets in different sizes; from their smallest to their largest sets. If there are not arranged on a wall, they are usually arranged by size on isles of shelves. All of the television sets are usually turned on with a continuous video feed usually promoting the store or a highly graphical movie. Such was the case I encountered when my husband and I went on a hunt for a television set for our room. After we decided what size screen we wanted, we set out to find the appliance that would suit our needs. I must admit that, like any other consumer, we were looking for the best quality picture at a reasonable (cheap) price. So, after careful consideration and visiting countless stores, we decided to purchase a 32-inch flat screen television sold at Sam’s Club. Out of all the other sets, we saw the quality of the picture and the price was quite reasonable. The particular shelf the model was sitting on was not crowded with different television sizes. In fact, there were only about 4 sets on display and the shelf was probably capable of displaying about double that amount. Every set was spread out evenly. There was a lot of lighting in the area and yet it was not reflecting so that we were able to see the picture quality......

The Importance of Lighting

...Theatre 152 November 12, 2015 Section 6 The Importance of Lighting One Flew Over the Cuckoos’ Nest , written by Dale Wasserman, was one of the more exciting plays I saw this semester. Part of the reason this play made such an impact on me was the way the lighting set the mood. I intend to argue that the lighting in the play properly set the mood for each scene. In this paper I will discuss how the lighting affected the mood when the Chief would look into the distance, how it affected the show during the electroshock therapy of McMurphy, and lastly how the transition from night to day really helped the play move along smoothly. During Chief’s monologues the lighting set the tone for him and was able to take the audience back to his native Indian reservoir. The blue hue that went along with his monologues really made one feel one with the Chief as if we were experiencing the same feeling and sites he was. With Chief looking up into the blue hue lighting it made it appear is if he was back at those ground and taking in the fresh air, whenever the stage went dark and that light flashed on him he seemed happy. The lighting helped make it seem as if you were back there with him on the Indian grounds, it allowed the audience to take that journey and ignore the setting around him, as if it took him out of the asylum and back to his home. As discussed in the chapter 10 in the text book, Theatre: The Lively Art, the light is crucial to giving focus and composition....

Dim Lighting

...The Dim Lighting Company Case Analysis Angela Buford Organizational Change – MGT311 Dr. Edward M.

They were down 155 compared to last year’s budget. The General Manager, Jim West is facing a tough decision this year, although he wants to take on the new projects presented before him by Robert Spinks, he needs to weigh his options. Macro: Dim Lighting Company is faced with deciding to be proactive or reactive. The Project that Spinks proposes can produce good benefits to the company but it is very expensive and it is a high risk. Micro: Jim is under pressure to meet his targets for the upcoming year. The decision that Jim’s make can ultimately affect his career in the long run. Spinks is has received several awards from the scientific societies and Jim is feels pressure to make a decision to satisfy Spinks. Spinks is very knowledgeable and losing him may hurt the company. Although the Company needs to keep up with technology they really don’t have the funds to gamble with. Causes: Some possible cause that may affect the decision for change in the company is the fact that Dim Lighting had previous years that were not profitable. There is also a need for more funds to be able to finance the project. With Spinks having a record of living companies when he didn’t get his way this is......

Lighting System

...Charmine Tan | 2011-16525 Arch 143 | Prof. Bo-Ot Lighting System Different lighting system are utilize for different spaces and functions. Instead of installing or changing lighting systems at once, it is more cost effective to have single lighting system that is flexible enough to accommodate multiple user needs. In general, the lighting system utilized demonstrates uniform lighting and accent lighting. These lighting systems may be used alternately or both at the same time. Uniform lighting is ideal for activities that require visual attention such as reading, writing or simple open gathering with family or guest. This may function well earlier in the night when users tends to wrap up their day, do homework, prepare for dinner and so on. Alternately for later in the night with less demanding visual task, accent lighting may be turned on to set mood and a soothing ambience. This is achieved with warm light perfect for relaxation and unwinding with activities such as chatting, drinking, watching movies and so on. Exterior Lighting Most space in the exterior setting does not require great visual attention but it is ideal to have good lighting system to improve visibility for the purpose of security. Additionally bollards are installed along the driveway for efficient lighting on the level of the car.

Lighting

...March 30, 2011 Mr. C Lighting Paper Stage Lighting and Design Theater and other aspects of performance bring life to any stage and as technology advances, the concept of lighting helps to blend the worlds of acting and design together. Lighting has always been a part of theater in the sense that it lights the area in which the actors are performing, but it wasn’t until mid twentieth century that lighting design was recognized as a separate discipline and art form. The combination of light with action, or acting, helps to create important elements that aid in the telling of the story. Lights indicate the mood of the play, time of action, and also trigger emotional responses. As the art of lighting design continually advances, the process that leads to these specific elements does as well. There are four basic steps that a lighting designer uses to effectively “design” the show. The first steps in this process is to read the material, and begin to understand what exactly it is that you are lighting and why you are lighting it. For example, if all of the action during a scene is taking place down stage center, lighting the upstage portion of the set could pull attention from the desired focus area. As early as possible it is essential that the designer sit down and collaborate with the director in an effort to incorporate the directors’ particular “vision” as to how the show is designed for the particular production. The second step in the process is to actually......

Dixon Audio Systems

...Lesson 8 Chapter 7: Dixon Audio Systems 1. A supplier such as D&S can obtain several benefits from establishing a JIT with a buyer like Dixon. Pros: * Long term relationship * More cooperative * Single source vendors * Steady demand for product * Accurate forecasting There are also reasons for D&S not to want to form a JIT relationship. Cons * D&S takes responsibility for all the supply * Business would be at risk if forecasting was done wrong, or poor performance * D&S would have to hire/appoint someone to place all orders for Dixon 2. Pros: * No longer has to worry about order timing * Improvements in quality * More reliable deliveries * Lower cost Cons: * Suppliers usually have multiple buyers, so the supplier could leave the buyer * Dixon worries that D&S could leak new product promotions to competitors * No longer has the ability to negotiate price 3. Some concerns that should be taken into consideration by Dixon are whether D&S will be able to handle the amount of needs Dixon has. Also they need to know that D&S will be able to uphold the quality and timing requirements set in front of them. Dixon should also make sure that the employee D&S provides to them will be trustworthy and will not leak the sensitive company information. They should also be concerned with whether they are committing to a price that is higher then the rest of the market. By......

Using Audio Visual

...learners who need different teaching style. So teachers have to vary their techniques used inside their classes in order to achieve better understanding among their students. One of recommended solutions is using audio visual aids as a helping technique in classrooms. Many teachers adopt this style and they find it a fruitful technique that it not only develops language skills, but also contributes in giving students background for many cultures as well (Stoller, 1995). Despite the fact that using audio visuals is remarkably a useful technique, we can notice that it is not a common technique in the Palestinian schools because of many reasons. The problem of the study Using audio visual aids in teaching languages is a notably effective teaching style since it can make a class more lively and interesting; so students’ ability to understand is enhanced by such technique. Consequently, most teachers in the world adopt this technique, but unfortunately, it is not the same in Gaza schools as the majority of them do not use this technique, and they depend mainly and sometimes only on the ordinary teaching style. The need of the study While checking books, articles and other sources, it could be noticed that non of them has paid any attention to the problem of lack of using audio visual aids in teaching in Gaza schools. Therefore, this research concentrates on this problem and tries to recommend some suitable solutions. Validity of the questionnaire The researcher......
