... receivable policy so a decrease in the company’s current ratio doesn’t occur. In order to see a quick reduction in the estimated accounts receivable going forward we recommend that Scientific Technology Company offer a 2-3% discount to its customers who pay within a 30-day period. We also recommend that for its financial projections going forward, the company limits its accounts receivables balance to 30% of sales. In the long-term, we recommend that Scientific Technology Company adopt a two-fold strategic policy. We advise the company to model itself after the Japanese firms, such as Takeda Riken, who have adopted aggressive price cutting policies in response to the lower consumer demand for personal computers, a large demand driver for the semiconductor industry. This would be realistic due to the overhead cost savings from lower energy costs, and income tax savings from closing the Arizona plant. If Scientific Technology company were to undercut its closest competitors’ price points, we believe the company could see a 3-5% increase in market share. We also recommend that Scientific Technology Company increase its Research and Development budget by 20% of sales in order to diversify and standardize the capability of the ATE software to be used on a variety of systems including: mixed signal test systems, analog test systems, and memory test systems, as well as the VLSI systems. This standardization would allow Scientific Technology Company to differentiate......

...Science Technology company case After reviewing the financial forecast from Science Technology Company and Semiconductor industry market situation, I concluded that 30% annual growth is not feasible, optimistic growth forecast is 15% .Because world semiconductor shipment kept growing, but not just semiconductor market but electronic products market was also dominated large market by Japanese manufacturers. If the company carried on with the same profit/cost structure, the company’s ROA would be 5% more or less in next 5 years, EPS would be 0.44 – 0.97 and stock price would goes down to less $10 – less $20. I can assume that there is no additional stock issuance. As of 1984, the ROA is 5.6%, EPS 0.57 and stock price $13-$37. 1.

What Is Science and Technology?

...MST 4, 1st assignment Date: 06/19/12 KARL JUSTEEN CLORIBEL DAVID What is science? What is technology? How do they impact or mold society? Science is a sustained intellectual activity carried on by human beings that is designed to discover and test information with regards to the physical and natural behavior of everything observable, testable and collectible data that can be organized into meaningful patterns. Information is the primary goal of science. To be able to answer and explain every inquiry is the rational nature of man, therefore, through time, man has devised a systemic process by which he can examine and discern the order and relationships that exist between and amongst various branches of knowledge. Science therefore is any systematically organized body of information on any subject matter. Developing countries, such as the Philippines, constantly pursue new knowledge and techniques to further our progress with the help of scientific process and observation. Though the several branches of science apply to all nations and all types of societies, Philippine science tend to focus more on the natural and economical departments, as we are a very naturally rich location. The Department of Science and Technology is the governing body of scientific activity in the country, responsible for organizing, recognizing, and enabling every scientific study to reach its most beneficial purpose. It has been the core of scientific progress in the country. A novel...

It also provides an opportunity to translate a strategy into expected incremental free cash flows and to subject it to the discipline of financial analysis. Please answer all the questions in the case (if any) and the following questions: Is the acquisition of Royal’s linerboard mill and box plants a sound strategic move? What is the outlook for linerboard prices? For profitability of the linerboard industry? What basis, if any, is there for expecting Atlantic-Royal’s combined linerboard and box mill operations to do better/worse than the industry overall? What prices should Atlantic Corporation be willing to pay for the linerboard and box mill operations of Royal Paper Corporation? What value, if any, should be assigned to the years after 11993? How reasonable are the assumptions on which the cash flows are based? How would you estimate an appropriate discount rate to be used in valuing the cash flows? Would you acquire Royal’s linerboard and box mill operation? What price would you pay? Pressco, Inc. (1985) The Pressco case is a capital budgeting exercise of considerable complexity.

...The first pocket calculator came onto the market in 1971 (the Bowmar 901B), more commonly known as The Bowmar Brain. It cost a massive $240, but within a decade the prices of similar pocket calculators had fallen to a mere $10. During this time the technology involved progressed enormously: Scientific calculators started to emerge with more and more functions. Programmable pocket calculators came on to the market, capable of storing programmes and instructions. As the years went by, calculators had more and more features and were capable of a great deal. The Ethernet was a step forward from the Arpanet. It was developed in the early 1970s as a method of transferring data over Local Area Networks (LANs). Its emergence is usually attributed to Robert Metcalfe, who wrote a paper with his assistant David Boggs entitled ‘Ethernet: Distributed Packet-Switching for Local Computer Networks'. The next advancement was the creation of the internet. A major step forward in 1986 was the NSFNet (National Science Foundation Network), created as the backbone of a university network. Even in the 1990s, people had to sign an agreement with them in order to access large parts of the public internet. Tim Berners-Lee (whose parents were both mathematicians on the Manchester Mark 1 project) is the man responsible for the creation of the World Wide Web (WWW). He saw the potential of hypertext coupled with the internet and in August 1991 he created the first ever website, which has been......

...Science and Technology Consider: * Science and its impact on society * Scientific developments & effect on man; environment etc. * The Sciences VS the Humanities * Science & Religion Definitions: * Science - study of nature and the knowledge we gain through observations and experiments * Scientific discovery - finding out about something about the existing workings of nature that was not known before * Technology - application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes (e.g. antibiotics and their uses) * Invention - newly created product/process Science today causes as many problems as it solves. * Horrible pervasions of science * E.g. Invention of poison gas (holocaust), war against Japan ended with the atomic bomb * Even when science is intended to benefit humans, unintended consequences could occur. * E.g. Rachel carson's silent spring (1963) awakened the world to the dangers of pollution * How science in the service of business can produce catastrophic results ; pesticides for farms -> Are we blinded by profit so much so we don't do not care about the environment? * *air pollution is the biggest cause of human deaths today Science, money and value * Science is very much subservient to business interest today -> values of those who seek fame and fortune creep into science: profit often determines the direction of science, influencing the choice of problem investigated by...

The industry that STC is in has short product life cycle, rapid technology obsolescence and fast growth with increasing competition. In fact, STC's strategy to survive the competition is to maintain leadership in ATE segment and to further compete in the large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits segment by chasing market share and spreading high R&D cost over large sales. However, the large sales growth seems to be more difficult to obtain with the newly added competition. The industry that STC is in has short product life cycle, rapid technology obsolescence, and fast growth. STC's strategy will beat the competition by maintaining leadership in ATE segment and competing in the large scale integrated (VLSI) circuits segment by chasing market share and spreading high R&D cost over large sales volume. The growth of ATE segment is largely fueled by the growth of electronic products, but this success can be segment dependent. Although the ATE segment with 28% annual growth is exceptional, the success in the ATE segment cannot infer the same success in the VLSI segment. Despite the aid of ATE segment growth, the historical sales growth would still be...

...The first lecture was about Science and Technology and he started off by saying that science came from society for the needs of the people meaning that everything Science and Technology invented or discovered is for the needs of society. Science and Technology both have their similarities and differences. One similarity of Science and Technology is that they were both created for knowledge while one difference would be in their usage. Science is for the understanding of the natural world and technology is the action of saving the natural world. Society however is the main predecessor of both science and technology because it is society that controls and guides the forms of science and technology. To conclude, Science and Technology are not necessarily related in the sense that they can be independent from one another and develop separately. Society is the determining factor for their possible connections and science and technology have become so intertwined that they have become related. The next lecture was on The Biography of Science and the video “The Story of Science – What is Out There?” was used as reference. This was basically about how early scientists or philosophers used their technology or invented technology to expand science and help society. The documentary mainly focused on philosophers being curious about what is outside the earth and its atmosphere and building telescopes to expand the vision of the naked eye. They studied the planets and how the planets...

...Science and Technology Essay 4 (250 words) Science and technology has become a debated topic in the society. On one hand, it is necessary for the modern life where other countries are continuously developing in the field of science and technology. It becomes very necessary for other countries too to grow in the same way to be strong and well developed like other countries for the future safety and security. It is science and technology which helps other weak countries to develop and be strong. We have to take support of science and technology forever to improve the way of life for the betterment of mankind. If we do not take the help of technologies such as computer, internet, electricity, etc we cannot be economically strong in the future and would be backward forever even we cannot survive in such a competitive and technological world. Advancement in the field of medical, agriculture, education, economy, sports, games, jobs, tourism, etc are the examples of science and technology. All such advancements show us that how both are equally beneficial for our life. We can see a clear difference in our life style while matching the ancient and modern way of life. High level of scientific and technological advancement in the field of medicine has made easy the treatment of various lethal diseases which was earlier not possible. It has helped a lot to the doctors to find effective ways to cure diseases through medicine or operations as well as research vaccines to cure diseases......
