...Supply Chain Management is the discipline related to the management of the planning, manufacturing and operations necessary to bring a product to the market place, from the sourcing of materials through to the delivery of the completed product. The deciding factor in the success or failure of any given product is in the efficiency with which it can be brought to the market place. If the revenue derived from the sale of a product does not create a required profit margin over the cost of its production then that product is doomed to failure, and the health of the enterprise that manufactures the product will suffer. supply chain management softwareWith that in mind it is clear that the most important factor in the life cycle of a product is the budget and time frame within which it is manufactured. The discipline of supply chain management and the ranges of software used to control it have been developed in order to make this cycle more efficient and cost effective. The field is led by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP). Supply chain management is a complex field encompassing every process involved in manufacturing a product. Supply chain management software assists enterprises in controlling streamlining the process through several logistical areas.

...First Draft Barn Burning is a short story that was written by an American author- William Faulkner. Faulkner has brought out a mysterious characterization of Snopes. It is a story that has ten year old Sarty Snopes as the main character who is faced by a conflict. Sarty’s father is a barn burner and he is divided as to whether he should let it to the judges that his father faces on two different occasions. In the first case, his father is taken to court and charged with burning Mr. Harry’s barn. Even though he is guilty, he walks away scot free and the bad thing about it is that it is not the first and is not going to be the last barn he burns as we see in the story later. It is an injustice and he wishes that he could stop it, but on the other hand, he should protect the family name. this brings out the basis upon which the story rotates. The stor’s main theme is a conflict in which Sarty has to find which one among his family and his community he should identify with. Abner Snopes, Sarty’s father keeps on reminding him that family relations are very important and that “he was getting to be a man. He got to learn to stick to his own blood or he wont have any blood to sticking to him” (Main story: p 3) the major theme in the book is about finding one’s identity, or choosing what to identify with. There is constant identity crisis. Sarty is caught off guard this time by his father’s intension to burn Mr. de Spain’s barn. He even tries to delay his plan by suggesting the...

...PSY 220 Check Point: Goal Selection 10/11/2012 As read in chapter 7, the matching hypothesis suggests a simple answer to the question of which goals do not or do add enhancement to a person’s well-being. Goals that fit a person’s values, needs and sense of self are likely to be the ones that increase a person’s well-being. Goals that are mismatched to with the person are known to lead to no change, or also known to even diminish well-being. (Steve R. Baumgardner, 2009) I have made many goals in my life starting throughout high school and did manage to follow through with a few that benefitted my well-being and also did not. A poorly-matched goal that I once made was to immediately push myself to go out and get a part-time job in or near my area. The reason was because my family would say rude comments about me not having a job and not being able to support myself. I desperately applied to tons of places and landed a job as a sales associate. On the third day working there I knew that I had made a mistake but I only took the job to prove to others that I am not “lazy” and also because it was the only job that offered me an interview. The negatives were that this job was forty-five minutes away from my home. I started with no money and no gas so I was having to ask my parents for money to start. I was only working three and a half hours a day making eight dollars an hour. Driving to and from work would cost me fifteen to twenty dollars a day of gas which meant that I was...

The image is an apt way of describing the bounce in the market for supply chain management software in 2010. The worldwide market for supply chain management software applications, maintenance and services, or SCM, came in at $6.755 billion in 2010, including applications for procurement software, and nearly $4.6 billion without procurement, according to Chad Eschinger, a research director with Gartner (www.gartner.com). That’s an impressive 10% bounce over 2009. “It was a good, up year,” Eschinger says. That’s a bit of an understatement given that 2009 had posted a 1.9% decline over prior year revenues, the first year-overyear drop in revenues for SCM software since Modern began publishing an annual Top 20 list in 2001. When it comes to market leadership, 2010 reminds us of the lyrics from that old Billie Holliday song, “God Bless The Child:” “Yes, the strong gets more, while the weak ones fade.” The market leaders look much the same as they did in 2009, with SAP ($1.317 billion) and Oracle ($1.21 billion) still at the top of the list and posting impressive gains over 2009. They were followed by JDA Software ($362 million), Manhattan Associates...

...Chapter I Background of the Study Introduction Cases of Dengue caused by insects especially mosquitoes are increasing year by year. Dengue is a disease caused by any 1 of 4 related dengue viruses. The viruses are transmitted to humans by the bite of an infected mosquito. There are 2 types of dengue, with dengue hemorrhagic fever being the more severe, and sometimes fatal, though much less common form of the infection. Dengue is endemic in at least 100 countries such as Asia, the Pacific. Dengue cannot be spread directly from person to person, so you can’t catch it from shaking hands, a sneeze, a doorknob or a toilet seat. Dengue is spread from person to person by the bite of an infected mosquito. The mosquito becomes infected with dengue virus when it bites a person who already has the dengue virus in their blood, typically in the time frame just before the infected person starts to have symptoms of the disease. About one week after biting an infected person, the mosquito can transmit the virus while biting a healthy person. A single infected mosquito can infect multiple people, who in turn can infect multiple mosquitoes — and the cycle continues. A bite from a female carrier mosquito can cause you fever, often as high as 104 - 105 degrees Fahrenheit, fatigue, headache, and swollen nymph nodes and might lead to death if it was not treated immediately. A total of 54,659 dengue cases were reported nationwide from January 1 to August 14, 2010, much higher than the...

...Raymonds Ad Analysis: (Letting go) It captures the evolving relationship between a father and his teenage daughter. It begins with the duo walking through a park, with the daughter resting on her father’s arm lovingly. At one point, she lets go of her father’s arm, distances herself, and waves out to her friends who invite her to join them.   The girl's dilemma on whether or not she should leave her father’s side is evident. The father meanwhile begins to reminisce about all the times his daughter would hold on to him, and need him by her side. As the flashback ends, he smiles and gestures for her to join her friends.   As the girl gleefully runs towards her friends, a voice over says, “Many things make the complete man. Letting go is just one of them.” Raymond's core brand proposition 'The Complete Man' has timeless relevance and has always stayed at the heart of our product ethos. However, the brand expression needs to be constantly evolved in an ever-changing socio-cultural backdrop. The new thematic brand film with its refreshing insight builds relevance for ‘The Complete Man’ in today's context. The brand campaign will be supplemented with a series of simple, engaging and impactful product proposition films to further enhance Raymond's strength in diverse product categories. every father who has a daughter will connect with this years, fabric manufacturer Raymond has kept its advertising true to its brand statement, The Complete Man.
