Tutorial 3 – Perception and emotions Computerized decision making
Q1. What are the specific advantages of using computerized decision making? How can computers be better decision makers than humans?
First, computers are capable of amassing and compiling enormous amounts of data and using them to spot trends and patterns that a human observer would simply never see. The second one is the computers also aren’t prone to emotional decision making or falling into the heuristics and biases. I think that computers be better decision makers than human because they can know enormous information and computers have no emotion and it can listen to people’s order to make the right choice.
Q2. What are the weaknesses of using computers as decision tools? Are computers likely to have any specific problems in making decisions that people wouldn’t have?
The first weakness is the computer systems have certain faults that might severely constrain their usefulness. Then, although computers can grind through masses of data, they aren’t capable of intuition or creative thought. They are much more likely to spot opportunities that lie just beyond what the data can tell us directly. Computers cannot actively consider whether their programming makes sense or adapt automatically when values change. They cannot notice if a person is out of order, but actually he is a good person. Computer cannot know this kind of situation, but human can see this kind of people. If the company let the computer to do the decision, the company may lose a good employee.
Q3. I don’t think computer decision-making system can effectively take ethical issues into account because I think the ethical decision is a controversial thing. It also has some criteria, such as, utilitarianism, whistle-blowers and justice, utilitarianism is a system in which decisions are made to provide the greatest good for the…...

Case Good Food

... fraud b. What risks are specific for GoodFood? Besides the above mentioned general risks for service organizations with a limited flow of own goods, some specific risks apply to GoodFood. - Royal accepts payments on account with 30 days payment term. As it is difficult to estimate the creditworthiness of a customer entering a restaurant this might result in irrecoverable debts for the company (loss of assets and revenue). - Dealing with accounts receivable also means additional work to the company as AR and cash settlements need to be segregated and registered separately. (otherwise it gives opportunity for theft) - Changing menus (all meals in Royal and special dishes in Premier) means careful planning of ingredient purchases is essential - Chef is responsible for the menu composition and the methods of preparation of the dishes. As these are not standard dishes, mistakes in ingredients and/or cooking are more likely to happen. 3. Discuss the necessary administrative and organizational conditions for GoodFood. Certain administrative and organizational conditions must be met for the internal controls to be effective. These conditions involve the computer security measures, the proper segregation of duties, appropriate management guidelines and adequate budgeting. Computer security measures should be applied, back-up systems should be in place (for example in case of blackouts) and access to computers has to be restricted.

Establishing Good Study Habits of a Child

... students. To improve study habits and study attitude, those factors are needed to be identified which affect these characteristics adversely. Identification of these factors may lead towards remedial measures. To identify factors having negative effect on study habits and study attitudes, to propose remedial measures and to employ strategies for the development of good study habits and study attitudes, well organized guidance services are needed in schools. Guidance refers to leading a person to self-actualization or helping him to develop his full potential. This objective of self-actualization is difficult to be attained if a student is unaware of, or unrealistic about his potential. Bhatnagar & Gupta (1999) define guidance as a process of helping the individual find solutions to his own problems and accept them as his own”. They further say that guidance is an integral part of education; a *IER, University of the Punjab, Lahore. Effect of Guidance Services 36 continuous service; both generalized and specialized service, for the “whole” child and is not confined only to some specific aspects of his personality. Shertzer (1976) defines guidance: “It is the process of helping an individual to understand himself and his world. Conceptually, guidance involves the utilization of a point of view to help an individual as an educational construct. It refers to the provision of experiences which assist pupils to understand themselves and as a service it refers ......

Good Study Habits for Academic Success

...Good Study Habits for Academic Success: 1. Pay Attention to Study Location Find a quiet, uncluttered, distraction-free area. Try a few locations until the ideal study place is discovered. Different spots may work for different subjects, too. Whatever the location, leverage powerful new mobile, interactive study solutions that allow high school and college students to better prepare for tests and course work through any portable device from anywhere, at any time. Such engagement helps students better prepare and minimizes stress, providing everything needed to study in one place, including hundreds of practice questions, detailed explanations, guided study plans, and high-quality reading content from the world's most respected publishers. 2. Vary Study Topics Psychologists say alternating study topics rather than cramming on a specific one in a single session leaves a deeper impression on the brain. So, don’t grind on the same subject all night. Change it up, take breaks and re-visit the material in intervals - even spacing over a period of days if possible, which has been proven to enhance retention even further. 3. Make Information Meaningful Whether it's creating rhymes or patterns, or even relating material to something else perhaps through word or scenario associations, such tactics can make information more meaningful and, thus, will enhance information recollection. The University of Maryland reports that mnemonic devices, or memory tricks, are particularly...

Good Study Habits

... who will become great leaders and manpower for a country thus responsible for the country economic and social development,( Ali et al.,2009) student performance occupies a very important place in education as well as in the learning process. It has long been recognized that in the process of learning the study habits of the student plays an important role in their academic performance. Learning is reflected in the way a student respond to environment, social, emotional and physical stimuli and understands new information. The key to better learning and better academic performance in schools are good teachers, lecturers, good study environment, parent’s co-operation, high quality books and the most important is the study habit. Study habits are learning tendencies that enable students to work privately. Azikiwe (1998) describes the study habit as “the adopted way and manner a student plans his private readings, after classroom learning so as to attain mastery of the subject”. According to her, “good study habits are good assets to learners because the (habits) assist students to attain mastery in areas of specialization and consequent excellent performance, while opposite constitute constraints to learning and achievement leading to failure”. Good (1998) define the term study habits as: The student’s way of study whether systematic, efficient or inefficient etc”. Going by this definition it literally means that good study habit produces positive academic...

It also aims to determine your ability to analyse such practical matters using the resources of theory, concepts and research that you have mastered during this course. Core Task: Basing your arguments on the academic literature that you have studied for this unit, write a report on the ways three different organisations have been able to obtain sustained competitive advantage in their markets. Your report should discuss the following points about each of the three organisations: 1. Evidence that the organisation has a sustained competitive advantage 2. Theoretical analysis of the reasons for the achievement of sustained competitive advantage. Your discussion is to be based on three suitable published case studies. This means case studies published in the academic literature – for example, the series of case studies in the textbook or in equivalent textbooks. You may not use Yahoo! as one of the case studies and short articles in newspapers, magazines, website opinion pages and the like are definitely not acceptable, although such materials may be used to supplement the published case study and your analysis. All sources must be properly referenced. If in any doubt about the suitability of a case study, seek an early ruling from your tutor. This is a substantial piece of scholarly work and...

Good Governance Case Study

...Good Governance Case Study Case Study 1 Mini Case: ACCT-05 Business Ethics Program Challenges Encounter: The action made started with the acquisition of additional asset through a loan acquired from a falling competitor. The assets obtained were a problem knowing that all the information about the inventory was nowhere to be found resulting to a sales decline. Without Rick knowing, Russ as a president holds large amount of checks, as a result they had encountered trouble about the reimbursement of the petty cash fund. With regard about the profit, they earn smaller amount than they usually receive because there had been a large markup which exceed its cost eight times. Self-centeredness is the major problem experienced in the given case. As for Russ, the majority stockholder, he told no one about the sales thinking that he could have something in case of bankruptcy or foreclosure. As for the point of view of Rick, the controller of the firm, he kept all the fraud information to himself and he always agreed to what the president says to earn his boss’s trust and also because of the reason that he might lose his job. Outcomes: For Rick’s concern he might as well tell the truth and do what is right without considering only his own sake because consequences are going to be much worse if he do the other way around. If ever they continue to do those frauds they had done, they might end up worn down. They could suffer and lead to bankruptcy. But if the actions they......

...Establishing Good Study Habits Efficient Use of Time The Power of Cooperation Mixing Studies with Social Activities Setting a Comfortable Pace Changing Your Habits Personal Maintenance Immediate Review of Class Notes Staying Awake Put Academics First Life More About Time Management Don't Panic Studying Can Be Fun Why Fail When You Can Succeed? Preparing to Participate in Class Efficient Use of Time I'm here to tell you what I think is a key to academic survival and success. The first and most important thing I feel, at least to survival and success in the classroom, is efficient use of your time outside the classroom. Remember, there are 24 hours in a day. Set aside two to three hours each day for studying. This will leave you with five to six hours -- after we subtract time for our classes, meals, and a good night's sleep -- to do those things that we like to do much more than studying. The next thing that I feel contributes to survival and success in the classroom is periodic review of your lecture notes and the appropriate chapters in your textbooks. Periodic review and beginning to study for your exams early will save you time in the long run and it will prevent cramming. That way you can be well rested and more motivated and less anxious on test day. The last thing you can do to help get good grades is take advantage of all the academic resources at your university. It can only help you....

Good Life Club Case

...Case Goodlife club First of all, each center do not have control of any purchasing that they make, because they use an ad hoc basis; it means that when they required something they just look for it at the nearby store, instead of maintaining an inventory inside the fitness center. Therefore, the costs of purchasing are really expensive. The new system that Sally implemented is based on a centralized purchasing, which will allow safe considerable money for the club. Although it is a good idea, there is still a problem with three of the centers located in Dallas, which are resisting to the new system. We believe that possible reasons of this reaction are that managers don’t want to spend time on doing an extra task asking for their centers requirements and not receiving them on time. Perhaps they are used to do things by their own instead of following determined process. Sally is now facing many issues, not only the problem with the managers in Dallas, also the time she considered to satisfy each requisition may not be enough as she thought, because now is her responsibility to take care of the nineteen center instead of just one of them. As she is very busy trying to figure out how to ship all the orders in just one week, when she already send them, a new list of requisition is coming, so she doesn’t have time to check if her plan is working in the right way. To solve this big problem we have though in some alternatives, first she needs to talk with the three...
