...Rupbani Beverage Limited Rupbani Beverage Limited entered the Indian wine industry in 1975 by acquiring the Mastana Wine Company of Shimla and two other smaller wine companies at Kalka for Rs. 50 lakh Despite hostility expressed by other wine makers and predictions that Rupbani would very soon fail as other outsiders such as Parminder Wine Company had, the entry succeeded. Rupbani Limited performed the unheard-of feat of establishing a volume of 30 lakh cases within two years and taking the market share away from premium brands such as the National Wine Company of Bombay, Pearl Drink Limited of Pune and Syndicate Cola Limited of Madras. Rupbani advertised heavily and incurred Rs. 10 lakh in one year and standardized the taste of its wines with considerable success. It also invested Rs. 48 lakh in a large, new winery at Ahmedabad. A Rupbani Executive said, "By 1995, consumption of wine in lndia will be a liter per capita, compared with half a litre today." The industry reacted to Rupbani's presence by doubling and tripling advertising expenditure. ABC and Company began a costly campaign to market premium and varied wines while reducing marketing emphasis on its cheap wines such as Nahan Drinks and the Gola Beverage.

I will describe to you some of the hardships of adding new groupware to a system that is already in place. Also have you ever wondered what a wiki does or what it could do for you? Well I in this paper you may find your answer. Let us start with some of the hardships of implementing new groupware into a system. First the costs can be frightening when you see it. By this I mean that the new groupware will require training for the personnel using it. So you will have to pay to have someone come in and train the new personnel. You also will lose efficiency at first while everyone is trying to learn the system and that causes a loss in productivity. Also you would have to purchase the groupware in most cases and that is not so bad if it is for only a few systems, but when you are buying I for an entire network of systems than it can start adding up pretty quickly.

Boeing Australia Limited

...Boeing Australia Limited Executive Summary My decision is to continue on the same course that Boeing Australia Limited (BAL) is on. I feel, after reading this case study that BAL has been on the correct path with regard to building their systems architecture. There is a need for a more sophisticated procurement process and the issue of a procurement application may be easily found. The key is the process by which BAL has implemented all other IT applications, they have been very successful. They are thorough and have processes in place to rationalize whether a new by-in application or an in-house developed program would be best. My thought is that at least one, if not more; of the current systems have an appropriate off the shelf application that would work for BAL’s procurement needs. Further investigation through the Materials Management Process Council should reveal an appropriate tool for BAL to use. In this case study I will outline the reasons for my decision and some of the potential cost savings involved. Statement of Issues The main issue of this case is to buy a new e-procurement application or to continue to wait for the best case scenario application to come along. It is an important decision that affects many aspects of the business. The potential to lose a client or a critical supplier is possible during this process. An in depth analysis of the situation must be conducted prior to any move toward a process change. Initially, change is difficult......

Boeing Australia Limited

...Table of contents Page Executive Summary 2 Immediate issues 3 Environment and Root cause analysis 4 Recommendation 5 & 6 Recommendation and implementation 7 Monitor & Control 8 Conclusion 8   EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Boeing Australia Limited (BAL) was formed in late 1996, relatively new company and a global extension of the U.S. firm. The Boeing Co. developed capabilities in the areas of space and communications, site management, and the upgrade and maintenance of military aircraft and equipment. As BAL grew, so did the legacy information system it used for both internal communications and external dealings with customers. BAL, however, faced difficult decisions as it sought to upgrade its procurement systems and processes to improve operations. In early 1999, BAL recruited a new national procurement manager, Russell Menere. His immediate task was to look for gains in productivity by improving procurement processes, either through cost savings or by reduced processing time. To meet this objective, he initiated a number of short-term improvements. These included the rationalization of number of BAL's suppliers, improving BAL's relationships with its key suppliers; the introduction of a credit-card purchasing system for low-value, large-volume consumables and the adoption of electronic ordering processes with BAL's larger suppliers. In 2002, with new opportunities available through e-business technology, Russell needs to decide......

Australian Beverages Limited

...Australian Beverages Limited A. A brief introduction of ABL Australian Beverages Limited (ABL) commenced soft drink manufacturing in 1937. During the 1970s and 1980s, the company expanded its beverage portfolio by entering into other non-alcoholic beverage categories, such as fruit and milk-based drinks. Entry into the snack food market was recently undertaken in response to declining consumption of carbonated soft drinks (CSDs), the company’s traditional area of business strength. This move also enabled ABL to leverage its strong distribution capabilities to supermarkets, convenience stores and hospitality channels by adding such complementary food products to non-alcoholic beverages. Nevertheless, CSDs still accounted for 90 per cent of company revenue in 2004. Tom Dwyer, the current managing director, has been with the company since 2005. He joined the company at a time when CSD growth was stagnating and shareholder confidence in the company was waning. In order to restore shareholder confidence, Dwyer established a strategic planning team within the company to assess the current product portfolio and identify organic and acquisition growth opportunities. Having finalized the integration of a snack food business acquisition just over 12 months ago, Dwyer is now aware that he needs to identify further growth options given predicted continuing decline in the CSD market. In January 2010 he asked the strategic planning team to undertake a detailed review......

There is a limited budget at this time to invest in new projects. BAL has done an impressive job initiating many short term improvements and I feel at this time it makes sense to allocate our resources and focus on this continuous improvement program. In order to arrive at this decision, an analysis of the pros and cons of implementing a new e-procurement system was conducted. Due to the large monetary investment required and the overall scale of this project, it is not practical to commit to a new system today. We have been successful at executing many effective changes in the area of procurement and will continue to do so in the future. This will help to streamline our processes, improve customer and supplier relations and most importantly, will ensure that Boeing Australia will meet its long term strategic goals.
