Say the company who the engineers get in contract with gets 100k in sales and we need to get 20k of it every year. Its a good idea of reducing your risk but

1. Lets think practical why cant the company invest on research with the same money they give as these companies deal with billions of dollars and cover their money spent of research within years.
2. Lets say before entering into contract the company would be trying to buy your technology instead of keeping you with them just to gain max. profit as it has no need to pay you with it taking all the risk as it involves billions of dollars.
3. And the companies which take these projects have huge funds with them or say they have the capacity to get huge investments as they are established.

the company would be least interested in keeping you aside and feeding you every time it has the 100% risk on it. Do u get my point.

Solutions:

I feel that the engineers should be selling their technology as there are already similar products like those in the market and you have lower chance of getting into profits. Say like even the similarity of the product is below 50% you cant succeed unless yours is the less than 90% similar.
OR

Go into a joint venture with a company say you have the project but there are investors who finance you and they have the risk of only capital and we have profits if this product clicks. Like say joint venture by selling the share of your company to get investments as say how major company have maximum stake to just hold the decision taking power. So you have the risk of not losing anything as the investors are at…...

Stone Container Corporation

...1. How did Roger Stone’s management of the company compare to that of his predecessors? In general, would you judge his leadership to have been successful? Why or why not? Stone Container Corporation (“Stone”) has historically been an acquisitive company. However, in the wake of the Great Depression, its founders established a longstanding policy to “not to carry any significant debt for long periods of time”. Prior to 1979, acquisitions that served to diversify the company’s product offering and geographic presence were typically paid for with a combination of cash and loans that were repaid early. While Stone completed an initial public offering in 1947, the business remained conservatively capitalized thereafter with family ownership in the majority at 57%. Roger Stone, with highly leveraged acquisitions of distressed producers, stimulated much higher financial and equity risks with the addition of layered debt. He was able to expand capacity more than 5 times at one-fifth of the normal cost of building new plants; however the high degree of operating leverage inherent in the production of paper/ paperboard exposed the company to a greater degree of cyclicality and pricing risk. Given the high fixed-cost nature of paper manufacturing, Roger’s aggressive capacity expansion left the company particularly exposed to periods of decline where producers will cut prices before production. Further, via additional equity offerings overseen by Roger, the Company’s family......

Image Analysis of Radiograph​Ic Scans for Detection of Threats in Cargo Containers​

...Threats in Cargo Containers Motivation The current standard methods for examining containers that pose a potential terrorist threat involve Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officers generally conducting either non-intrusive or physical inspections. The non-intrusive inspection (NII) involves use of X-ray or gamma ray scanners to generate an image of the contents, which DHS officers review for anomalies. DHS officers also scan cargo using radiation detection devices. When an irregularity is identified, officers may physically examine all or a portion of the container’s contents (see Figure 1 below). [pic] Figure 1: Cargo container being examined by portable VACIS system. Problem Importance The methods implemented will enable the identification and evaluation of cargo radiographic images having an extremely widespread and powerful impact for Homeland Security. Project Description Radiographic imaging has become an important tool for screening cargo containers for potential nuclear or radiological threats. We are investigating methods to extract features from these images that effectively characterize the contents and when combined with other measurements and information could indicate whether or not a threat is present. Analysis of single-energy radiographs is made particularly challenging by the large variety of cargo contents and the overall volume and mass of standard intermodel shipping containers. Once these......

...Efficiency Analysis of Container Ports and Terminals Qianwen Liu A thesis submitted for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy of University College London Centre for Transport Studies Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering University College London 2010 1 Declaration I, Qianwen Liu, confirm that the work presented in this thesis is my own. Where information has been derived from other sources, I confirm that this has been indicated in the thesis. Candidate’s signature ………………………………….. Qianwen Liu 2 Abstract In the past two decades the steady growth of seaborne trade has resulted in the increase of container ships, container ports and their terminals. The structure of the shipping market is, moreover, continuously evolving. On the carrier side, shipping companies form consortia and alliances; on the port side, global terminal operators and dedicated container terminals are emerging. The aim of this research is to evaluate the efficiency of container ports and terminals and to study how to improve the scale efficiency of any particular port/terminal. In particular we study how certain factors influence the efficiency of container ports and terminals. Regional container ports and global container terminals are examined based on the econometrics benchmarking method Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA). Two datasets are used, a panel dataset for 32 container ports in the North Mediterranean Sea over a nine-year period, and a......

Case Study the Container Store

...CHAPTER 4 CASE ANALYSES Introduction Kip Tindell, Garrett Boone and John Mullen first opened The Container Store on July 1, 1978. The Container Stores are full of boxes, racks and containers to help you organize your home or office. The company playfully uses the motto “Contain Yourself.” Their company culture is centered around an “employee first” culture and values its employees. The Container Store has never lost sight of its number one stakeholder and owes much of their success to that strategy. From the beginning, its founders created foundation principles based on spiritual and golden rule philosophies. The foundation principles serve as a reflection in how the company treats their employees and how they treat each other. Company president and CEO Kip Tindell declares, “A funny thing happens when you take the time to educate your employees, pay them well and treat them as equals; You end up with extremely motivated and enthusiastic people.” It is not surprising that the Container Store has been on Fortune’s magazine annual list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” for fifteen years. The Container Store has also been highlighted in “10 top perks from Best Companies 2014” because of their annual We Love Our Employees Day celebration. In addition, Melissa Reiff, COO and Director, was recently highlighted as an influential female business leader in Dallas. The Container Store’s top leadership team is made up of 75% women and companywide it is......

Container Medicine in Rural Ghana

...for medical services either through private or public medical insurance or out of pocket subsidy from improved incomes. The Ghana Health Service and some private initiatives are struggling to keep up with the demand for primary care medical clinics. The traditional bricks and mortar option, although appropriate in many instances, will take time and tremendous resources. There is a modern option that provides greater speed to market and has been very successful and embraced in several developing and developed countries. MRC GH LTD isleading an initiative to improve access to medical care by providing access to primary healthcare through networks of “container clinics” and semi-trailer units. Unlike other uses of containers, the MRC Rapid Clinics will be covered in a special “skin” that covers the traditional container appearance. The clinics do not need to be all staffed by physicians, although ALL will have access to and the expertise of physicians and specialists. The typical clinic will be staffed by trained medical and physician assistants and nurses. The units will be linked through a telemedicine network to allow medical consultation as needed, thereby creating access even to specialists, but at low cost and minimized travel. These “mobile units” have flexibility in placement. Increases “speed to market” and can be quickly positioned without the huge expense of land acquisition and bricks-and-mortar construction. This approach is designed to strengthen the......

Case

...Marc Baggaley MKT-370-01 Case #1 Daynor Chemical Company 1. Walter should make his decision based on the majority of the customers needs. It has been determined that the largest volume of business comes from the tobacco farmers. Their needs include a package system that is easy to handle and small enough to handle yet larger enough to treat at least an acre. Previous liquid calculations for farmers were based on the gallon, and 4-8 qts depending on the application. Keeping the new package at the same rate of coverage would allow for an easy conversion. The most the soluble bag can hold is 2.5 lbs, 2. The size of the water-soluble package should cater to a majority of the customers needs. If the new water-soluble package were made to hold 2.5 lbs of material and 1.5 lbs being the active ingredient, it would cover 60% of what a previous gallon did. This would be ideal for a majority of the tobacco farmer customer base, as they would not have to purchase extra with the packages being smaller. 3. The issue with the amount of bags in the over pack bag is storage for whatever is not used that season. If the farmer stores the over pack bag properly there will be no waste into the following season. If the over pack were sold with 12 bags per that would yield 8 acres of treatment per over pack. 30 lbs of dry product yields 18 lbs of a.i.. This figure would allow for an easy conversion for farmers and falls in the middle of the usage for the consumer......

Kookaboora Container Corporation:

...KOOKABOORA CONTAINER CORPORATION: Maybe Tomorrow When the Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga opened its gates for investors in light and medium industries, the Kookaboora Container Corporation (KCC) was among the first ten companies to locate in the zone’s premises. KCC manufactures containers of various shapes and sizes which are used by manufacturers of industrial chemicals, food products, cooking oil, motor oil, and others. The production department of KCC is headed by Engr. Nicolas Aisporna, a licensed mechanical engineer. He is a tickle for discipline. When even small mistakes happen in his department, he personally calls the offending employees and metes the appropriate penalty. As a result, his department was judged best in efficiency. Very minimal wastages in materials and time were recorded by the department. Under the direct supervision of Engr. Aisporna are 10 supervisors who are graduates of engineering courses and with an average of three years work experience. Ten workers report to a supervisor. All of the workers are high school graduates. All employees including the supervisors and the workers are paid on a monthly basis. The workers, however, are required to produce a minimum number of units per day. During the slack seasons, workers are engaged only from 50% to 75% of their normal working hours due to lack of sufficient job orders. No worker is laid off by the company and everyone receives full pay. This is so because of the strong recommendation......

Container Terminal Efficiency

...Running head: CONTAINER TERMINAL EFFICIENCY Container Terminal Efficiency Joshua K. Hodgin American Military University CONTAINER TERMINAL EFFICIENCY With a projected 186% [ (The Agile Port Efficient Marine Terminal) ] increase of containers moved through ports by 2025, terminals are forced to relook at how efficient cargo is being handled. Even though there are required methods by law, container terminals can be more efficient by more effective inspection processes and container handling improvements. Container terminals of today consist of robust equipment and processes that enables cargo to be transported throughout the world. Using intermodal transportation practices, the terminals very effectively transfer cargo between three different modes of transportation; ship, train, truck. The question now what improvements are being made to make processes more efficient and effective while staying in line with current laws? We will explore different innovations of terminal processes, future designs of transportation equipment and enhanced cargo inspection processes. Container terminals have the responsibility to move cargo as quickly and efficiency as possible and the Agile Port System is helping ports do just that. Innovations of Terminal Processes “An Agile Port is a marine terminal or system of terminals capable of accommodating varying cargo quantities and types while minimizing operation interruptions within the terminal” (US Department of......
