Oreo\'s Entry into China and India

for the sensors our company is developing in the Capsim simulation by following the same steps that Oreo took in both countries. The first step in China would be to analyze the culture and see how the sensors as produced in our way would be received. We would have to survey the consumer and identify changes to the product that would have to be made if any. The same would go for India. In countries where markets offer tremendous opportunity, a long-term target is appropriate, whereas in markets that already open to the product a short-term target would be… Continue Reading...

Classroom Observation

Introduction It is easy to assume that a comprehensive decision making theory gives a reliable basis for an observation scheme for a classroom. However, it is apparent that even though the practical and theoretical ventures overlap in many respects the core of the theoretical tenets are fundamentally variant. They are broader in some respects and narrow in others. The deterrents of real time implementation are significant and thus the scheme of analysis is fundamentally different from the theory frames that led to (Schoenfeld, 2013. At the onset, I believed that teaching was about spending 8 hours teaching and having a… Continue Reading...

Best Practices in Supply Chains

it will work at some point. When it comes an algorithm, the precision is less present. 9) simulation is when a question or theory is tested in a way that is contrived and thus "simulated". It does not always replicate reality in a good way but it can teach lessons in some instances. Chapter Four 1) Buyback should be used when the demand can drop sharply. A payback contract is good when the buyer wants to sell back any excess production. An option contract would be used when a reservation on a product is desired and is secured in the… Continue Reading...

Intelligence Simulation Essay

Successful simulation of Intelligence is Essentially Equivalent to the Possession of Intelligence Researchers have been attempting to develop artificial intelligence for more than a half century now, but it has become increasingly apparent that intelligence is a multidimensional construct that is incredibly difficult or perhaps even impossible to truly simulate. As the review that follows below will demonstrate, the assertion that successful simulate of intelligence is essential equivalent to the possession of intelligence is erroneous due to the multidimensionality of intelligence as well as its other nebulous qualities that preclude… Continue Reading...

Change Framework to Lateral Violence in Nursing Practice

be involved in changing the culture. Sanner-Stiehr, E. (2017). Using simulation to Teach Responses to Lateral Violence. Nurse Educator, 42(3), 133-137. Evidence strength 6 The article illustrates how simulation can be an effective tool in teaching nurses on the impact of lateral violence and hence contributing to the overall change of the culture of lateral violence in the setting of healthcare facilities. This article contributes to the topic of lateral violence by explaining how the administrations of healthcare facilities can effectively use training as a way of sensitizing about the overall effect of lateral violence to the healthcare system. Sanner-Stiehr,… Continue Reading...

Selection System for Spy Recruitment

different exercises for a whole day (Suciu, 2016). Finally, the selection team will conduct job simulation tests, which will assess the candidate’s reactions and response to various scenarios relating to the job. Since the selection system needs to be implemented immediately, its effectiveness will be evaluated based on the number of suitable candidates it generates. By the end of the three-day procedure at Station S, the selection system will be considered effective if it helps in identifying the required number of suitable candidates and weeding out undesirable candidates. It will also be evaluated based on its ability to maintain… Continue Reading...

Mass Extinctions and Climate Change

global warming. Part II. Global Climate Change 6. The four greenhouse gases that are being measured by the simulation are carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, and nitrous oxide. 7. The average temperature in the "Today" simulation is 59-60F. Adding clouds appears to do little, maybe up one degree. In 1750, the average temperature was around quite a bit lower, around 53-54F. The gas levels are as follows: H20 CO2 CH4 N20 Present Day 70% 388ppm 1.843ppm 0.317ppm 1750 70% 280ppm 0.73 ppm 0.27ppm Ice Age ? 180ppm 0.38ppm 0.215pm During the ice age, the average temperature was a lot lower, bouncing… Continue Reading...

Clipboard Tablet Co Marketing and R&d Analysis

X7 has the highest unit sales potential but it is the one that underperformed the most in the simulation. The product’s performance has been miserable over the past four years and led to the sacking of the company CEO. Investing in R&D and price cuts may help the product realize its potential or thereabout. The scenario thus demands that an in-depth analysis of investing in either X6 or X7 is done to determine what would rake in more returns. According to Zeithaml et al (2006:256), new products are never new to the same extent. New services may be minor… Continue Reading...

Teamwork Training Theme and Leadership

objective shown below for the separate teams. Each team’s obligations are also highlighted. Orienteering: this is an intensive and effective simulation for team development. It is intended to manifest instant effect on the working approaches of a team by probing their weaknesses and vulnerable areas via an experimental and creative strategy (Dyer et al., 2013). The business simulation approach exposes team members from varying team types to challenges they would face at their place of on daily basis, but in an outdoor setting in this case. Orienteering involves scenarios such as outdoor terrain and the tactics needed for navigation and… Continue Reading...

Nursing Practice Changes

For APRNs, there is now more emphasis being placed on simulation and academic-practice partnership models to help provide the health care industry with more graduates who can give safe and effective care to patients independently of physican-assistance.
