Chapter 10 Exercises Review Questions 1-10

1. Define the term system architecture. Define the term scalability, and explain why it is important to consider scalability in system design.

System architecture translates the logical design of an information system into a physical structure that includes hardware, software, network support, and processing methods. Then, Scalability is the measure of a system’s ability to expand, change, or downsize easily to meet the changing needs of a business enterprise. Scalability is important to consider in implementing systems that are volume related, such as transaction processing systems.

2. When selecting an architecture, what items should a systems analyst consider as part of the overall design checklist?

Before selecting a system architecture, the analyst must consider the following issues:
Enterprise resource planning (ERP)
Initial cost and (TCO)
Scalability
Web integration
Legacy system interface requirements
Processing options
Security issues

3. What is enterprise resource planning (ERP)? What is supply chain management?

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) defines a specific architecture, including standards for data, processing, network, and user interface design. It is important because it describes a specific hardware and software environment that ensures hardware connectivity and easyintegration of future applications, including in house software and commercial packages. ERP also can extend to suppliers and customers in a process called supply chain management. In a totally integrated supply chain a customer order could cause a production planning system to schedule a work order which in turn triggers a call for certain parts from one or more suppliers.

Weekly Article Review Chapter 10

...This chapter discusses product characteristics and classifications. A product is anything that is offered in a market that satisfies a need or want. A product has 5 levels of offering: 1. Core benefit- reason why a person is really buying the product. 2. Basic product- core benefit. 3 Expected product- attributes or qualities expected from the product 4. Augmented product- exceeds expectations and 5. Potential product – takes into what the product is and can be in the future. All the five levels are important factors for the marketer to understand to incorporate product classification. There are 3 product classifications marketers categories products: 1.durabilty 2. Tangibility 3. Industrial or Consumer use. All the following elements are important for the product mix strategy when it comes to packaging and labeling. The chapter also discusses managing new products. Most products are either acquired through acquisitions or through research and development. It is important to understand during new product development the need or want. A need has to be there for the idea to generate. A screening process takes place to weed out any other contenders that are not as strong or cannot meet the needs. The next phase is the concept development to determine who will use the product and to test the concept; whether targeted audience feel that the product will be relevant to the need or want. This process will help marketers come up with a marketing strategy. A general life cycle of......

Exercise 10-2 Ojt

...Exercise 10-2: OJT Start off the training the first day would start with some classroom training so that we can start with information about the company, what their new job will be like and go over the safety rules so that we can make sure everyone is in a safe environment. I feel that it is very important that an employee knows what they is sell and who they are working for because one of the greatest selling tool you will have is a love for what you are selling and the belief that your company is the best. I can tell you a love for what you are doing will help you do it every day and if you believe in what you are selling you can make others belief it and then they will by it and on the smallest level just having the confidence can make you stand out verses others. This first part of the training will be the orientation. After going over the products a little, the company, and safety rules we will start to get the trainees ready to learn and the first thing will be to get them their uniform and get changed. After they have changed I feel it is important to talk to the trainee get to know them and each other, find out what they do, things that they like and things that they do not like and try to add things in about how that relates to their new job and why it is important; this can help get the new trainees interested and ready to learn which is important because you cannot force anyone to learn they must be ready and willing to. This should take the first part of day...

...Chapter 10: Re-expressing Data: Get it Straight Creating a model is a mechanical process; knowing when it is appropriate to use it is a thinking/analysis process. A useful model is the ultimate goal. Linear Models have tools that are relatively simple to understand and interpret: slope, yintercept. We can verify that a linear model is appropriate by checking the conditions and looking at the residual plot. Curved Models can be fit, but relatively speaking are more difficult to calculate. First Approach: Make sure that a re-expression can be meaningful. • Once we re-express, decide if the model is appropriate o Create the model o Plot the residuals o If there is still a curve, build another model o When the model has random, scattered residuals then we interpret using the model • Scatter plot shows a mixture of “signal” and “noise” o Signal is the underlying association between the variables o Noise is the random variation unaccounted for by the association o Example: in a scatter plot of height and weight, generally tall people weigh more; however, not all 6 ft tall people weigh the same—that variation is the noise. We want a regression model that describes the signal (the underlying relationship between ht and wt) Residual plot shows us the variation that is not explained by the model If the plot is random (just noise) then we have captured the whole signal If a curve remains in the residual plot, then we missed some of the signal meaning we need to look for a better...

... Chapter 10 Product Liability I. Definition of Product Liability Manufacturers and anyone in the chain of product distribution can be legally liable for defective products that cause injury to the purchaser, a user or bystander, or their property. Most states have adopted strict product liability, whereby an injured person may recover damages without showing that the manufacturer was negligent or otherwise at fault without a contractual relationship. II. Theories of Recovery The primary theories on which a product liability claim can be brought are breach of warranty, negligence, and strict liability. A. Breach of Warranty In a warranty action, the question is whether the quality, characteristics, and safety of the product were consistent with the implied or express representations made by the seller. 1. UCC Warranties  may be either express or implied for merchantability or fitness for a particular purchase, as set forth in Chapter 8. 2. Privity of Contract  Breach-of-warranty is based on contract law. Generally, an injured person to recover for a breach of warranty, he must be in a contractual relationship (privity) with the seller (a consumer or buyer of the product) and prevents recovery from bystanders not in privity with the seller. B. Negligence To prove negligence in a product liability case, plaintiff must show defendant did not use reasonable care in designing or manufacturing its product or in providing adequate...

... paltry 92,000 rooms across the country. While in some cases, rooms available at an exorbitant cost might not deter the business traveller, there is not a compelling enough reason for tourists to spend such large sums on stay alone. Thus, inspite of reforms on the aviation front and the Ministry Of Tourism campaign, Incredible India, inbound tourism is threatened by stagnation.” Neeraj Ghei, director, Select Vacations “The cost of hotels is indeed an expensive proposition. This demand-supply issue is short-term and mainly due to a lack of rooms. Hotels look at this opportunity as the best possible way to extract maximum prices. In the future, more development of hotel rooms will ensure lower tariffs and more supply. If one has to compare the Indian hotel rates with their South East Asian counterparts, Indian hotels are 50 per cent higher.” Rohit Kohli, director - operations, Creative Travels “India as a destination has indeed out-priced itself and in comparison to its competitors it has lost the competitive edge. What the inbound industry is witnessing is an increase in pricing without hotels actually improving the quality and standards. In fact, to cite an example, this summer season has witnessed a reduced growth of about 10 per cent as compared to last year’s summer season. One needs to realise that the hotel component forms quite a major portion of a travel or tour package. And considering that these hotel prices fluctuate at about 100-150 per cent, it certainly...

...." On another occasion, Alfreda show Jack what she thinks is a creative design approach that will result in a lower-cost system. Jack tells her, "I don't even have a Ph. D. and I can see that won't work. Don't be so esoteric; just stick to basic sound engineering." During a business trip with Dennis Freeman, another engineer assigned to the project who has known Jack for six years, Alfreda says that she is frustrated with the way Jack treats her. "Jack is acting more like the electronics engineer for the project than the project manager," she tells Dennis. "Besides, I have forgotten more about designing electronics than Jack ever knew! He really isn't up to date on electronic design methodologies." She also tells Dennis that she's planning to discuss the matter with the manager of electrical engineering and that she would never have taken the job with Codeword if she had known it was going to be like this. CASE QUESTIONS: 1. Do you think Jack is ready to serve as a project manager? Why or why not? How could Jack have prepared for his new role? 2. What is the major problem with the way Jack interacts with Alfreda? 3. Why do you think Alfreda has not had an open discussion with Jack about the way he is treating her?

...Megan VanSickle Climate Change Collapse Summaries Chapter 10-Malthus in Africa: Rwanda’s Genocide Summary In Chapter 10 Jared Diamond is educating the readers in the instance of Rwanda’s collapse with the conditions of lack of farming land, hunger, war, poverty, lack of natural resources and more. These were caused by population pressure. Overpopulation is the primary cause which brings many problems along with it. Diamond begins the chapter by discussing and talking about his family’s stay in East Africa. He and his family saw overpopulated streets of poor people which sadly most of them were children. The children were on the side of the road begging. Diamond also discusses how population problems such as this with East Africa are sometimes pointed out as Malthusian theory. This is when population grows rapidly compared to food production increases. Diamond also discusses the Rwanda’s people that were controlled and influenced by Hutus, mostly farmers and Tutsis. Hutus and Tutsis did not like each other so Hutus army started killing Tutsis with weapons. Diamond later causes many examples such as overpopulation in Kanama. This caused population consuming below the average daily required calories. This educated readers about the different regions that are coming to be thee victims of population pressure. At the end of chapter 10, Diamond thinks that overpopulation had great impact on the Rwandan genocide. Diamond uses three counterarguments in order to prove his......
