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

...1. How can GoodFood be classified in the typology of organizations? GoodFood complements its relatively small volume flow of goods (food and beverages) with services (cooking, serving) thus it can be classified as a service organization with a limited flow of goods. More precisely as food and beverages are purchased and owned by the restaurant it can be classified as a service organization with a limited flow of own goods. 2. a. What risks inherent to this type of organization apply to GoodFood? Risks inherent to this type of organization include: - Insufficient quality or amount of ingredients which could lead to unsatisfied customers and loss of reputation and/or revenues - Most ingredients are perishable thus loss of value of ingredients occur if they are not used on time - Customers do not receive what they ordered (misalignment between customer orders and meals prepared) and therefore are dissatisfied and meals have to be returned and prepared again which means loss of assets - Incomplete documentation of waiters (when orders are not documented thus sales are not recognized) can lead to loss of assets and revenues - Incomplete cash collection by waiters lead to loss of assets Accounting Process Management 2 - 6 - - Theft of ingredients or cash by personnel leading to loss of assets - Since sales transactions are relatively simple personnel usually performs more than one duty (servers take orders, serve meals, and collect cash) which gives opportunity to......

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

How to Write a Good Case Study

...1 How to Write a Case Study What Is a Case Study? A case study is a puzzle that has to be solved. The first thing to remember about writing a case study is that the case should have a problem for the readers to solve. The case should have enough information in it that readers can understand what the problem is and, after thinking about it and analyzing the information, the readers should be able to come up with a proposed solution. Writing an interesting case study is a bit like writing a detective story. You want to keep your readers very interested in the situation. A good case is more than just a description. It is information arranged in such a way that the reader is put in the same position as the case writer was at the beginning when he or she was faced with a new situation and asked to figure out what was going on. A description, on the other hand, arranges all the information, comes to conclusions, tells the reader everything, and the reader really doesn't have to work very hard. When you write a case, here are some hints on how to do it so that your readers will be challenged, will "experience" the same things you did when you started your investigation, and will have enough information to come to some answers. There are three basic steps in case writing: research, analysis, and the actual writing. You start with research, but even when you reach the writing stage you may find you need to go back and research even more information. The Research Phase: 1. Library......

...Case #10- Good Hotel: Doing Good, Doing Well? Jamie Caudle Q: What is the vision/mission behind the Good Hotel concept? A: The Good Hotel is intended to be the first hotel with a conscience. Our philanthropic and positive approach is designed to inspire the "good in us all" (Pearce, 2012, p. 10-2). The Good Hotel is a hip San Francisco hotel that practices philanthropy and believes in doing good for the planet. The eco-friendly hotel décor features reclaimed and recycled construction materials (Pearce, 2012, p. 10-2). I believe the concept is to create a themed based hotel that is catered to a green living approach to life and have some fun doing it. The mission and vision statements for the new owner group of The Good Hotel are as follows: Our Mission At Haiyi Hotels, we endeavor to make a difference in the lives of our guests and associates through a shared passion for life, work and personalized experiences (Haiyi Hotels, 2014).

Dry Goods Inc Case Study

...Which contract manufacturing option has the most attractive financial benefits? Financially I would say Yangtze would be the most attractive. You have the ability to produce a very minimal order volume (compared to competitors) at significantly less cost. To test the market in the early stages this would be the cheapest option. If the product fails less costs would have been incurred. 2. What are the complications and benefits associated with entering into a contract to manufacture Dry Goods outside the United States? There are language and cultural barriers. The American consumer is trying to buy more American made products. Manufacturing overseas, there is less certainty over the social and environmental standards set by the organization and the government’s regulation of the industry in that country. Products produced in Suzhou, China will not qualify for FDA’s over-the-counter designation. Shipping and lead-time can be costly factors. However, inexpensive components mean Dry Goods can be produced at a lower cost than that in the US. 3. If Joyce and Cornuke choose to hire a contract manufacturer, whom should they hire, and why? Aero Master King CSC Yangtze Units 100000 100000 100000 100000 Price per unit order value 1.75 1.48 1.52 1.16 Defect Rate Units 2% 2000 .02% 200 2% 2000 1% 1000 R&D $20000 $40000 (N/A) $30000 (N/A) $30000 Driving Distance No Yes No No Medical Product Yes Yes No No Shipping Cost - - - 17500 COGS per......

With an increasing number and size of these ventures, it has been routinely seen that Indian Organizations tend to adapt the management models of foreign collaborations. This has created tensions and conflict in relationships sometimes. There are lots of big names in market like Procter and Gamble, Godrej, LG Electronics with CK Birla; Toyota with DCM.

Case Study

...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 will require extensive engagement with both unit theory and at least three detailed case studies. Process: 1. Choose your three cases. They all need to be published cases in academic sources (e.g. textbooks, journal articles). It is obviously important that each case represents an instance of a company achieving sustained competitive advantage (check your materials to be clear about what that means). 2. Analyse and locate evidence. Begin to analyse each case in terms of the two questions – particularly question one. It is vital that you respond to both questions, but the evidence for sustained competitive advantage is more likely to be in the case material itself. It is in this part of the process that you might bring in supplemental material from company......

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......

This is the key distinction so after going through the process of getting a longer period of time for your “extension of stay” and Thai work permit; please ensure you have a re-entry before departing Thailand. Siam Legal can assist you to obtain a single re-entry entry permit (one time use) or multiple re-entry permits (unlimited use). STEP 5: Renewing your visa and work permit: Your work permit expires when your extension of stay does You will need to renew your stay in Thailand before you can renew your Thai work permit. This can be done in Thailand or in some cases you must leave the country. If you cannot obtain your extension inside Thailand, you will have to get a new non- immigrant visa from a Thai Embassy or Consulate abroad as explained above. If you have an unexpired multiple-entry visa, all you have to do is go over the border and then return. If required to go outside Thailand to obtain a new visa, you will need to provide the Embassy or Consulate with copies of your work permit and new recommendation letter from your company, company registration documents, and financial and tax reports. Siam International Legal Group with its global presence can assist you in any country with renewing your visa. Again, all of this must be done prior to your work permit expiration.

...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......
