The mini cooper is a nationally loved vehicle so why not design an R/C unit to resemble it? It is sold in a variety of colours and has different generation of models ranging from the mini Austin to the popular Mk VII, this allows diversity!
‘Diversity + Manufacture = $$$PROFIT$$$’ (Rule of profit – buy cheap, sell high)
Plastic granules are fed into the hopper, the plastic then melts from the emitted heat. Just like a syringe the melted plastic is injected to a mould creating your desire shape.
This was used to create the car shell, chassis, driving gear, axel and the cover for the battery and motor.

Manufacture is another key word in engineering; it basically means how to get the part for the unit from raw material to material that is needed. It can be broken down into 3 categories: material, method of process and labour. Different materials have different methods. A popular one for polymer is injection moulding.

Your desired metal is pushed through a die making a wide metal become long and thin. This can save material cost and is fully automated.
This was used to create the pulling rod and wiring for the circuits for the vehicle to move.

Labour cost is another category diversing from manufacture, the RC/ car is batch produced and is made fully automated the only time it comes in contact with human is at the end of the manufacturing line. This means money will be saved as machine works faster and do not need breaks.
*Cheap materials
*Cheap method of process
*Cheap labour

Summary Summary

Summary Summary

From the research I have collected we can estimate that the vehicle cost 5-7 GB pound to be created and is sold for £12.99 this means a 40% profit is made per unit sold, which is very good considering it is made in batch produced. We have mechanical tested it and electric tested it and for its price it is defiantly worth purchasing given the research data.
As you can see it takes alot brains into creating something than using it. -The creator is far more powerful than its followers

Lincoln Square

...Lincoln Square Fieldwork Assignment Walk down to Lincoln Square on a Sunday afternoon, and you will find yourself immersed in a world without problems. At least that is how it looks from the outside, just observing. People walk around with their families, pushing strollers or walking their dogs, conversing with each other and taking the time to talk to people they meet. You see nice cars and beautiful houses, restaurants and patios, library and cinema, the Old Town school of Music, Lillstreet Art Center and the Dank-Haus a museum slash cultural center, in other words it is an enclave where you can find everything you need without having to leave the area. It seems like everybody knows each other either because they live in the same area or because their usual Sunday afternoon or stroll time usually happens here and they got to know each other. When I say Lincoln Square I am referring to the commercial heart of Lincoln Square neighborhood located where Lincoln, Lawrence and Western avenues meet. It is “the heart of the city’s German culture” (Solomon). Community area 4, 7 miles north of the loop serviced by the Brown Line, it is a part of the Greater Lincoln square along with other neighborhoods, namely Ravenswood Manor, Ravenswood Gardens, Ravenswood, Bowmanville and Budlong Woods( Wikipedia). The City of Chicago gave Lincoln square its name in 1925, three decades before a statue of the president was actually put here in 1956. During the 1900 and 1950 Lincoln Square......

The Mini

...About a week ago after driving my Mini Cooper for a short distance the EML light in the car would come on and the car would hesitate. The car then would loose pressure dropping the speed from normal speed limit to no more than 5 – 10 mph. After parking the car, I noticed that the fan would come on and remain on for an extended period. When I lifted the hood of the car, I noticed that the coolant supply would be low. Replacing the coolant supply did not seem to fix the problem. I attempted to figure out the problem with an experiment. I drove the same speed around the block multiple times. The third or fourth time I noticed a difference. When I drove the car approximately a mile, the temperature gage would increase activating the EML. Then the car would hesitate, loose pressure, and decrease in mph. It seemed to be a direct correlation with an increase in temperature, the EML light coming on, losing pressure, and the decrease in mph. So to make sure there were not any confounding variables, I drove the car slowly to ensure speed was not a factor. Decreasing the speed did not change anything. I was able to make the same observation. I took the car to the auto repair shop. The repair person informed me that there was a leak in the coolant system. The leak caused an increase in the cars temperature. The increase in the cars temperature activated the EML light. The car would loose pressure. When the car lost pressure, the protection mechanism would activate to prevent any real...

...SQUARE Have you heard about the new “Square”? As in, “Are we square?” It’s a new square-shaped gizmo that gives people a way to accept credit card payments on their iPhone, iPad, or Android. It was invented by Jack Dorsey, the founder of Twitter, a guy who knows something about new ideas that catch on with people carrying cell phones. Prior to this, really only business owners could accept credit card payments. A standard credit card machine costs several hundred dollars, and credit card processing companies charge set-up fees and monthly fees (whether you make any charges or not), as well as high per-transaction fees to boot. That’s why ordinary folks don’t own a credit card machine. According to its Web site, the small Square device is free and plugs into the earphone jack, the downloadable app for it is free, there are no set-up or monthly fees, and the per-transaction costs are much lower. It’s secure, it E-mails the receipts, and it keeps track of all your cash and credit card transactions for you.  The New York Times calls the idea “beautiful, simple, and a joy to use.” Add to that “disruptive, brilliant, and irresistible.” Disruptive? You bet. Not only is every kid with a lemonade stand--and every Tupperware lady and every cab driver and plumber--now going to be able to take credit and debit cards, big companies like department stores and chain restaurants would be crazy not to switch for the lower fees and free equipment. The credit card companies are not going......

Cooper

...segment.When looking at the criteria that Cizik's company (Cooper Industries), set forth relative to acquisitions, the acquisition of Nicholson meets all three objectives plus has significant potential short and long-term potential. Cooper management feels that by eliminating redundancy and streamlining Nicholson's operations this potential can be realized. Currently, Nicholson's financial history boasts a 2% increase in profit annually but this percentage is way below the industry average of 6%. Cooper management proposed that if Nicholson stops selling to every market, increased efficiencies would result and cut cost of goods sold from 69% of sales to 65%. It was also suggested that the acquisition could lower selling, general, and administrative expenses from 22% of sales to 19%. Nicholson's position in the file and rasp market where it holds a 50% market share of a $50 million dollar market meets all three of Cooper's objectives. Furthermore, Nicholson's brand name within the hand saw and saw blade industry is strong and Nicholson holds a 9% market share in the $200 million dollar - their only major competitor was Sears and Diston who held a larger market share.Shareholder Standings At the time of the proposed merger between Nicholson File and VLN, there were a total of approximately 584,000 Nicholson shares outstanding. H.K. Porter had not purchased enough shares to hold majority control, and this situation provided Cooper with yet another opportunity to acquire......

...shows that the job is not only affecting the main character physically, but also psychotically. It is interrupting his mind in his every-day, which indicates that the annoyance really is a problem for him. The short story is written as a 1st person narrator, where we mainly follow the main characters thoughts in the factory, and not so much about his real life. What we do get to hear about his personal life, is that he drives a white Mini Cooper, which is not a cheap car. He does not have a girlfriend and does not seem interested in any of the girls at work; in fact he seems to abhor one of the ladies and her attire. He even admits that he has “[..] zero confidence with women anyway” (p. 4, l.96). We do not read about him even attending any guys either and in general, he seems to be a very introverted person. One thing that is quite funny about him is that he is very in to the English punk rock band, Joy Division. There is now three things that opposes each other. His very boring, low paid factory job, his classy white Mini Cooper and his love for the dirty, gritty, English punk rock band, Joy Division. The reason for his taste in music is that he can let himself loose to it and get all of his anger from work out, just by listening to this music, consisting of fast drums, loud guitar, yelling vocals and a pumping bass. It gets his pulse moving, which is does not at work or in his spare time. The main reason the main character dislikes this factory so much, is......

Post-acquisition difficulties resulted because: (a) managers of the acquiring company did not deeply understand the target company at the time of the acquisition; (b) the acquirer imposed an inappropriate organizational design on the target as part of the post-acquisition integration process; and (c) inappropriate management incentives existed at both the top management and division level.

...COOPER INDUSTRIES, INC Nicholson File Early in 1972 Nicholson File had to stave off a take over attempt by H.K. Porter Company Inc. which controlled 30.5% of the company's stock. Porter made a cash tender offer to stockholders. However, Porter did not get enough stock to take over Nicholson. In trying to fight the takeover Nicholson File made several merge overtures to other companies like VLN Corp. A few years back, it had rejected an offer from Cooper Industries. Cooper Industries interest in Nicholson Cooper was interested in Nicholson because of its competitive strength in the hand tools industry. Nicholson had a 50% share for files and wraps with a very strong brand name and high quality line. It also had a 9% share of the 200 million hand saws and saw blades market with excellent brand & quality. It had a very effective and large distribution system across US, Canada and overseas. Cooper industries believed that Nicholson can achieve 6% annual sales growth as also bring down the cost of goods sold from 69% to 65% and selling and administrative expenses from 22% to 19% , thereby increasing its profitability. Cooper would be able to use Nicholson’s distribution system to cross sell Cooper’s hand tool lines in the industrial and consumer markets. Cooper anticipated that the Nicholson acquisition would lessen its earnings volatility and currently Nicholson is in the merger market to stave off the raid by H K Porter Company. 1/5 Valuation of Nicholson File......

Cooper Case

...Economic Data In the 1970’s, Sears was a major economic player in the tool industry. They were originally called Sears and Roebuck until the early 1970’s, but since then the Roebuck part of their name has been dropped. During the early 1970’s was when Sears began to develop more business in a retail setting, as they began expanding heavily into suburban shopping malls and doing less business through their mail-order catalog, which, historically, was what had made them a well known company. The major brand that Sears holds that could have competed with Cooper/Nicholson is the Craftsman brand, which was registered by Sears in 1927 and was recently names one of America’s most trusted brands. From 1970-73, the US economy grew by an average of about 3.8% per year, and an average of 2.7% per year from 1974 onward. The 1970’s saw the rise in a term called “Stagflation”, meaning that the economy was growing slower than expected (stagnant), and inflation was happening to prices. It is believed that the inflation was the caused by the Vietnam War and President Lyndon Johnsons “Great Society” Programs. Those programs were a series of increases in government spending aimed at improving education, medical care, and transportation, all while helping to eliminate problems in urban centers. Unemployment was high back in the 1970’s, due to the large number of women who were attempting to enter the workforce, combined with the fact that there were very few jobs available.
