First of all, based on the theory of means end chain, the product is analyzed through product attributes, consequences of use and personal values. Special features of the product lead to the consequence of use, which finally stand for the value of the product. Besides, consumer markets are segmented according to different groups. Therefore, in this report, based on the analysis of four different categories including demographic, psychographic, use-related and benefit sought, it states consumers have different characteristics in terms of different items in each category, and then it identifies three groups of iPhone 4S consumers, including the primary targets of iPhone 4S are people who are loyalty to this brand with some knowledge of it, another two big groups are people who are interested in new high tech phones and people who are chasing social acceptance. It indicates that groups with special features share the same choices when they are making the purchase decisions.

A cement mixer is device often used in the construction industry to produce a concrete substance, this is done by adding compound components such as the concrete powder, mortar and water together with the aid of a cement mixer to mix and fold these components to form what is known as a concrete substance which may be used for the application of bricklaying, foot paths or drive ways. A cement mixer is often used in the construction industry in large quantities however these devices can also be used by DIY householders due to the variety of mixers currently available in today’s market. All mixers leverage power, torque and weight distribution to get the concrete to the site, but getting it out of the truck is where you'll see differences in truck designs. Most of the mixer fleet, especially older batch model trucks use a simple tip-and-pour method to get the concrete out of the mixer. A chute attaches to a port and the concrete pours out of the mixer to the project. Usually, the driver of the truck operates the machinery and aims the chute. Many transit mixers are coupled to a hydraulic lift bed that can tip up the drum, similar to a dump truck, if needed. Other trucks, many of them volumetric and the newer transit mixers, use a pump to move the concrete from the truck to the project. The pumps, usually......

Kristen’s Cookie Company Case Report

...Kristen’s cookie company pre-case report DSC335 1. Draw a flow chart of the cookie-making process 2. How long will it take to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie? It will take 26 minutes to fill a rush order of 1-dozen cookie. (I revise my chart to 4 cycle orders) 3. What is the cycle time? How many orders can you fill in a night (4-hour period)? Does your answer depend on the size of the order, 1-dozen, 2-dozen, or 3-dozen? 1-dozen orders: The cycle time is 10 minutes. The first order of 1-dozen cookies will take 26 minutes, and each 10 minutes for another 1-dozen cookie order. (4*60-26)/10=21.4 plus the first order, we can make 22 orders of 1-dozen cookie fill in a night. 2-dozen orders: The cycle time is 20 minutes. The first order of 2-dozen cookies will take 36 minutes, and each 20 minutes for another 2-dozen cookie order. (4*60-36)/20=10.2 and plus the first order, we can make 11 orders of 2-dozen cookie fill in a night. 3-dozen orders: The cycle time is 30 minutes. The first order of 3-dozen cookies will take 46 minutes, and each 30 minutes for another 3-dozen cookie order.

Case Study: Kristen’s Cookie Company

...22 minutes (26+20+20 /3) to produce a dozen. (Considering that one order is a dozen.) 4) Because your baking trays can hold exactly one dozen cookies, you produce and sell cookies by the dozen. Should you give any discount for people who order two dozen cookies, three dozen cookies, or more? If so, how much? Will it take you any longer to fill a two-dozen cookie than a one-dozen cookie order? Because producing a second and a third dozen cookies will take less time than producing the first dozen cookies (excluding the washing and mixing steps), we can give a discount for people ordering two or three dozens. It can be a 10% off for the second and third dozens. 5) How many electric mixers and baking trays will you need? I can have 3 baking trays for each electric mixer. It will save me 2 minutes of spooning in the second dozen and 2 minutes in the third dozen. By having 3 baking trays, I can use the time of baking of the first dozen by spooning cookies onto the tray in the two others...

...Indivisual Assignment 1: Kristen’s Cookie I. Flow Diagram for fulfilling an order II. How long will it take to fill a rush order? Washing out mixer bowl and mixing ingredient + Spooning cookie on to tray + Putting cookie in oven & setting timer and baking + Leaving for cool + Packing in a box + Accepting payment 6 + 2 + 10 + 5 + 2 + 1 = 26 min III. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? Since the required resource for different stages are not all in common, Kristen and his roommate could process two orders simultaneously. However, before starting the second tray of cookie, we need to wait until Kristen is done with washing mixer bowl, mix ingredients and spooning cookie on to tray for the first tray, for which the time lag would be 6 + 2 = 8 min. After Kristen are done with washing mixer bowl, mix ingredients and spooning cookie on to tray for the second tray, they would realize the oven is still in use of baking the first tray of cookie; therefore, we need to wait another 2 minutes for the availability of oven. Thus, the total time lag between the first and the second would be 8 + 2 = 10 min. The expression of the number of minutes to produce n one-dozen batches is: 16+10n≤4*60 So we can get n≤22.4. The nearest integer is 22; therefore, we can fill 22 order in a night in...

Kristen's Cookie Company

...1. How long will it take you to fill a rush order? It takes twenty-seven minutes to fill a rush order of one dozen cookies because it takes 1 minute to receive, read, print, and send reply to the customer order; 6 minutes to place all the ingredients of the order into a mixing bowl, up to three dozen cookies worth, and mix; 2 minutes to spoon the cookie dough onto a tray, a dozen per tray; 10 minutes to put the cookie into the one tray capacity oven, set the timer, and bake the cookies; 5 minutes to take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool; 2 minutes per dozen to take the cookies off the tray and carefully pack them into a box; and 1 minute to accept payment for the order. The overall process takes 19 minutes per dozen and a constant 8 minutes for every order under four dozen cookies because of each order under four dozen will always take 2 minutes to receive and accept payment for the order and 6 minutes to mix ingredients up three dozen cookies worth. So for a rush order of two dozen it will take 46 minutes and a rush order of three dozen will take 65 minutes. 2. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? Assuming all orders are only one dozen, we could fill 24 orders in a night because the bottleneck resource of the process, which determines the capacity of the whole process, is the baking in the oven. Baking takes 10 minutes giving it the lowest capacity of all the steps and the capacity of the whole......

Kristen's Cookie Company

...Case Report: Kristen’s Cookie Company Question 1 How long will it take to fulfill a rush order? | Gantt Chart for Kristen's Cookie Case | | | | | | | | | | | | | To fulfill the rush order it is still necessary to go through all parts of the process illustrated on the process flow diagram of the cookie-making process (it can be found on the last page). As there are no processes that can be done in a parallel way, every stage follows the other. Calculating the time needed for each step it can be concluded that the order can’t be prepared less than in 26 minutes. Question 2 How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open 4 hours each night? We already know from the first question, the first dozen can be fulfilled in 26 minutes. Lets have a look, on the fastest possible way to prepare the second and all the following dozens. I can start preparing the 2nd order as soon as I start heating the oven (the chart visually demonstrates it): According to the chart it takes 26 minutes to fill the first order and 10 minutes more to fill each following order. From here we have: Operating time = 4*60 = 240 minutes The formula for counting the amount of orders that are able to be produced can be seen as: 16+10n <= 240 where n is the numbers of orders. From this equation we get, that n(max) = 22 dozen. So during 4 hours in a night one can prepare 22 dozen of cookies in 236 minutes. Question 3 How much of your own and your roommate’s......

Mixing Alcoho

...Mixing alcohol with other substances such as energy drinks is never really a good idea, and pairing it with energy drinks may become very dangerous, especially for the young adults whom drink it more often. A teenage girl at the aged 16, died after consuming three cans of pulse, which is a mix of vodka, soda and guarana, at a party in Cheltenham. An autopsy was conducted and it was found that the cause of death could not be determined. At a certain point, alcohol stops making a person intoxicated and doing liver damage and starts to do SERIOUS cellular damage to all parts of the body. Your blood stops being efficient at oxygenating muscles and tissues, and the alcohol itself contribute to killing cells (especially brain-cells). At this point you can risk brain-damage, and even death. For this reason you might want to avoid the Caffeine. Alcoholic mixed drinks have many adverse effects and are a dangerous cocktail. The mixed drink needs something done about it. When you ingest caffeine, it stimulates the body's fight or flight response, producing a surge of adrenaline. If our bodies are subjected to too much adrenaline, we can experience seizures, chest pain, heart palpitations and agitation – these are all signs of caffeine toxicity. The vast majority of these related to 'recreational' use of energy drinks, with affected 'recreational users' aged 15 to 21 years. Energy drinks have become enmeshed in the subculture of partying. The practice of mixing energy drinks......

Term Paper

...Brandy Schwartzberg Midterm paper In this class we have learned there are three separate jobs that everyone that works in the sound department has to know. Even though they are separate jobs they blend together a little bit. These jobs are the mixer, the cord operator and the boom technician. Without these people a movie would not have good sound as far as dialogue and ambiance. The first job is the mixer. This person has a lot of responsibilities. They connect the mixer to the recorder along with connecting the other equipment to the mixer. They make sure that we have good sound. They do this by putting the mixer audio level at zero and then putting the recorders DB level at negative twelve. By doing this it gives them some head room incase an actor increases the ton of their voice i.e. yells at another actor, we will still have good audio. The mixer is also in charge of doing the time codes. This means they right down the time code or this time on the recorder which the audio is recording and then writes down if that take was good or bad. Next we have the cord operator. This person’s job although you may think it is pretty easy it is a very important part of this department. Without a cord operator your boom person can fall, trip, ect. because someone is on standing on the cord. This person is also in charge of keeping the cords wrapped correctly. The last job on set as far as sound goes is the boom operator. This person determines which kind of mic......
