Luxury Coupe Market
1) Check the correlation coefficients table, and explain the strength of linear relationship between dependent variable and each independent variable.

Price Cyl HP Cs Wt EPA
Price 1
Cyl 0.8126 1
HP 0.81796 0.88496 1
Cs -0.05553 0.227818 0.210189 1
Wt 0.299822 0.583057 0.553415 0.721702 1
EPA -0.86167 -0.72173 -0.87161 -0.03383 -0.45652 1

Correlation between Price and RHS variables:
There is a strong positive correlation between price and the number of cylinders (Cyl) as well as Price and the automobile’s horse power (HP). On the other hand Price has a strong negative correlation with the estimated highway consumption mileage for the luxury coupe market. In summary Price has a positive linear relationship with the following RHS variables: Cyl, HP, Wt. and negative linear relationship with: Cs and EPA.

Correlation between each pair of RHS variables:
Multicollinearity occurs when the absolute value of the correlation coefficient between two independent variables is greater than 0.8. In our basic model above multicollinearity is observed between the number of cylnders (Cyl) and horse power (HP) 0.88496, which is makes perfect sense since the more cylinders an automobile has the more horse power it will carry under the hood. Multicollinearity is also noticed between horse power (HP) and highway mileage consumption (EPA) -0.87161, which again can be seen in the real as cars that carry lots of horse power lack fuel consumption on the road. The rest of the correlation coefficients between the independent variables reveal weak relationships between each of the RHS variables.

2) What are the regression equations? Explain the economic meanings of estimated coefficients. Does the regression make sense? Are the coefficients what you would expect, and in reasonable magnitudes?

... industry exposure in each state. For a list of data and indicators used, please consult the appendix at the back of this report. Source: BMI © Business Monitor International Ltd Page 14 United Kingdom Autos Report Q2 2011 Regional Overview Hyundai Makes Ill-Timed CV Launch In Europe South Korea's Hyundai Motor made its foray into the European commercial vehicle market with the launch of its HD-series mid-sized truck in Spain and Portugal in November 2010. While Hyundai's growth in the passenger car segment in Europe has undoubtedly been commendable – with regional sales up 4.4% y-o-y in 9M10, taking its market share up to 2.4%, compared with 2.2% in the same period in 2009 – BMI doubts if the carmaker will be able to replicate the success in the commercial segment. We fear that a combination of slackened demand and the domination of European brands could make it very difficult for Hyundai to make any significant gains, at least in the short to medium term. ACEA estimates that truck sales in Europe increased 6.4% year-on-year (y-o-y) in 2010, to 234,734 units. Although the market bottomed out in June 2010, there are significant concerns that the fiscal austerity measures and tax increases in most European markets from 2011 will stall demand for trucks in 2011 and 2012. As such, we doubt whether Hyundai's attempt to make inroads in the European heavy commercial vehicle sector is well timed. Swedish truck maker Scania has highlighted concerns that the industry is...

Aacsb Case Report on the Car Industry

...Bob Cleever 4 October 2011 Professor Andac Arikan AACSB Case Report The car industry is a very powerful industry worldwide. Though it has faced many challenges through the decades, car manufacturers have managed to create strategies needed to keep their firms afloat. This report will touch on the different forces that affect the industry and what manufacturers have done to counter them. The most interesting factor about the global automobile industry in the last decade is that the economic challenges that it faced were not even caused by the industry itself. The housing market crash of 2008 and the recession that U.S. went under during this time was what affected the automobile market the most, decreasing sales and creating billions of dollars in losses that had not been seen since the 60’s. Even the biggest manufacturers that we never thought would fail like GM and Chrysler faced bankruptcy and received government aid to survive the recession. The case illustrates the affects and reactions that took place in the automobile industry for its survival against bankruptcy. Although the housing market is different from the automobile industry, it took the automobile industry on the same downward spiral. Threats of New Entrants The threats of new entrants are relatively low in the automobile industry. Not many companies start a brand new car line from scratch. However, many existing companies create new car lines that target a brand new segment or buy another...

Project Report

... employees have few challenges. Therefore, your employees have little motivation to do anything but show up for work and collect their paychecks. Your employees' goals begin with a vision of where they want to be in the future. Meet with your employees to develop realistic, attainable goals that guide them in their efforts to achieve the organization's vision. Don't leave your employees in the dark. Help them to help you, and your organization, by setting goals and then by working with them to achieve those goals. Failing to delegate Some surveys rank "inability to delegate" as the No.1 reason that managers fail. Despite the ongoing efforts of many managers to prove otherwise, you can't do everything by yourself. And even if you could, doing everything by yourself isn't the most effective use of your time or talent as a manager. When you delegate work to employees, you multiply the amount of work that you can do. A project that seems overwhelming on the surface is suddenly quite manageable when you divide it up among 12 different employees. Furthermore, when you delegate work to employees, you also create opportunities to develop their work and leadership skills. Whenever you take on a new assignment or work on an ongoing job, ask yourself whether one of your employees can do it instead (and if the answer is yes, then delegate it!). Failing to communicate In many organizations, most employees don't have a clue about what's going on. Information is power, and some...

The rest of the correlation coefficients between the independent variables reveal weak relationships between each of the RHS variables. 2) What are the regression equations? Explain the economic meanings of estimated coefficients. Does the regression make sense? Are the coefficients what you would expect, and in reasonable magnitudes? Regression equation: Pricei = β0 + β1Cyli + β2HPi + β3Csi + β4Wti + β5EPAi + ei Pricei = 531693.8 + 19851.17Cyli – 202.279HPi + 152.1348Csi – 56.4338Wti –14902.9EPAi + ei Explanation of coefficients: • An increase of one cylinder to a car raises the price by $19,851.17 which for luxury cars on the market makes reasonable sense and has the correct positive relationship. The Mazda RX8 has a rotary engine not a cylinder engine that is why it is considered to have 0 cylinders, that is why it could affect slightly the coefficient for our Cyl variable. • A unit increase in horsepower of a car decreases the price by $ 202.28. Higher horsepower does not necessarily make the car faster it also depends on weight and the number of cylinders the car uses to accelerate. • 1 cubic feet increase in the space of the car drives the price higher by $152.13. Roomier luxury coupes tend to be slightly more expensive depending on each manufacturer and brand of the vehicle. • A one unit increase in the weight of the car lowers the price of the car by $56.44. This makes sense as the coefficient is relatively smaller compared......

Garrett Car Rentals Audit Report

...Garret Car Rentals Audit Report Objective Our objective is to perform an efficient and informative audit of Garrett Car Rentals, and identify areas of weak control that need to be improved. Recommendations * Use the COSO audit approach: * The condition is that there has been a tremendous increase in vehicle count, maintenance and repairs have increased in the past three years, and that inventory and inspections have increased additionally in the Wilsonville factory, while all other factors are decreasing. The inspections in the local service providers is decreasing while inspections in Wilsonville plant is increasing with greater inventory in the United States. * The criteria is that there should be more diversity in the locations or repairs and inspections, and not just the Wilsonville plant dominating all areas. The expenses of maintenance and repairs should not be so costly due to the fact that only minor repairs should be taking place, and private sales of vehicles should not be occurring because it is against company policy. * The cause is that there is a lack of segregation of duties, not reliable of financial statements, and the method of disposition of vehicles is unreliable. * The effect is that the company is not being protected, possible fraudulent activities could occur, and the expenses are increasing dramatically which leads to loss of revenue for the Wilsonville plant in the long run.

... a new product with a new process is dangerous. We didn’t know how to develop a car in such a short time, but many felt that longer we waited, the longer people would find reasons not to do it” Considering the long tradition, the costs involved in the process and the fierce competition, a drastic decision like changing all the processess could be fatal for the business. On the other hand, BMW had to find a way to align to the market competition, shorten its engineering lead time maintaing also its high quality standards and commitment to its customers. On a long term the new development strategy will provide a viable long-term competitive position. By speeding up the processess BMW will not change its core principles, they will just use different instruments. They will maintain their quality standards, and even improve them after the learning curve of the new instruments will expire. They will still rely on people experience, but in different areas, encouraging teamwork and flow of information. The “Digital Car” project is a third generation system which will reduce lead time by 50% and also cut development costs. ...

... elaborate debates in the Parliament before a vote for or against the proposals is made. After this the finance bill is said to be passed. This process usually goes on till 31st March. What is vote on account? During an election year it is not practical for the ruling Government or for the new Government taking charge after the elections to prepare or debate on the full budget and pass it before the new financial year begins. Hence, the outgoing Government would announce an interim budget or vote on account in February which will be followed by a full budget by the new Government in a few months’ time after the elections. The interim budget will include a report card on the income and expenses made last year and the proposed expenses likely to be made in the next few months until the new government takes over. There is no proposal on the income part of the budget through collection of taxes. This procedure called vote on account would seek the approval of the Parliament. Once there is approval the funds for these expenses are then debited to the Consolidated Fund of India. An interim budget or VOA is also presented just before a few months in the pre-election period during which a code of conduct is put in place. This would gag the central and state governments from announcing any major sops as this could swing the voting pattern in favor of the ruling government. Moreover, an outgoing Government cannot present a full budget as the outlook and approach of the new Government...

Robotic Lego Car Report

...Lego Mindstorm Car Report - This project requires the conception, planning and design of a Lego Mindstorm vehicle. As the brief was relatively general, we decided to assume we were working with a customer who required a rugged all terrain vehicle. This meant designing a vehicle that could meet specific design criteria’s whilst still being cost efficient and within realistic build parameters. In order to meet these costumer needs, we produced a set of targets for our design to meet, which in turn would provide strong evidence our design would perform in the real world. These targets were: * Survive a drop from 1m * Use minimum number of parts (Cost effective) * Achieve relatively light design (Under 700g) * Reach speed of 1ms-1 To best meet these specifications, we designed several prototypes, each with the sole aim to meet one of the user requirements. Once created, they could be analysed and ranked using the User Requirement Specification, as shown below: User requirement Specification | Weighting | 1. Survive drop of 1m. Not become disconnected from any pieces. | 5 | 2. Reach a speed along flat terrain of 1ms-1. | 2 | 3. Use minimum number of parts, thereby keeping costs at a minimum. | 4 | 4. Design which is light as possible, reduce risk of becoming stuck. | 1 | 5. Achieve an aesthetically pleasing design. | 3 | The URS can be used to rank each concept, with each requirement having a score of a certain weighting. This will...
