As we can see, on the calculations; the company has chosen labour hours for the allocation base. But when we do the calculations with the machine hours with the allocation base, we face with a huge difference and moreover see a lower total cost, which make high the profit. Making profit higher will be a good thing, so the company should choose the machine hours for their allocation base and calculations. In addition; because of the technology improvement and automation; machinery will be more usable and effective. Moreover, because the machines will be heterogenous, we will then need different number of labor for each. Some of them is highly-automated whereas some of them is low-automated. So, again we understand that machine hours will be a better allocation base then labour hours.

Labour hours Machine hours
Standard products (high volume) 2500 3500
Specialised products (low volume) 1500 3000
Total 4000 6500

Budgeted labour rate 42,5 279500/6500=43 -0,5
Budgeted overhead burden 149,825 599300/6500=92,2 57,625
Total Cost 192,325 135,2 57,125

2) As known, the most commonly used allocation base in traditional costing is direct labor hours. We can also see this in the case. But at this point, we may face with some problems such that in this process overhead is increasing while direct labor is decreasing. There is an 1800$ increase whereas 46% increase in the overheads dramatically. Moreover, we see a variance and complexity in the production process. Tankmaster Manufacturing Company is producing to distinct products which are standard and specialised products. While, standard products have a higher labour hours/machine hours ratio (2500/3500), specialized products' ratio is (1500/3000). So, we understand that standard products use more labor force whereas specialized products use more machinery. This indicates that a plantwide overhead

General Patton

...December 21, 1945) was a United States Army general, best known for his flamboyant character and his command of the Seventh United States Army, and later the Third United States Army, in the European Theater of World War II. Born in 1885 to a privileged family with an extensive military background, Patton attended the Virginia Military Institute, and later the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. He participated in the 1912 Olympic Modern Pentathlon, and was instrumental in designing the M1913 "Patton Saber". Patton first saw combat during the Pancho Villa Expedition in 1916, taking part in America's first military action using motor vehicles. He later joined the newly formed United States Tank Corps of the American Expeditionary Forces and saw action in World War I, first commanding the U.S. tank school in France before being wounded near the end of the war. In the interwar period, Patton remained a central figure in the development of armored warfare doctrine in the U.S. Army, serving in numerous staff positions throughout the country. Rising through the ranks, he commanded the U.S. 2nd Armored Division at the time of the U.S. entry into World War II.

Happy Birthday, 1951

...decides to take the boy to a green and living place outside the devastated city. In addition, the man creates a cart for the boy, which the boy rather sees as a tank. On their way to the place, the boy spots an old, rusty tank, which fascinates the boy. The man becomes more and more irritated by the boy’s admiration of things connected to war, which culminates in the man becoming angry with the boy. When the elderly man wakes up after a nap, the boy is gone. The man finds him saying ”Gotcha!” while seated in the tank’s turret pointing towards him. 2: Characterization The young boy was born in the latter half of the Second World War. We can extract this piece of information because of the short story’s title (1951), and because the boy has not gotten any birthday presents in the first six years of his life, which means that the boy turns 7 years in the short story. The boy’s nationality, name and birthdate are also unknown. The boy’s mother was a refugee, who probably delivered her baby to the old man because she feared for her life. The young boy has lived his whole life in a cellar in a shattered city. Therefore he cannot remember much if anything nothing from the war. This is why he does not have the same view on soldiers and tanks as the old man, who takes care of him. The boy admires the soldiers and the tanks, like many male children do at that age, and he has examined them closely, ””Black and red is the engineers,” interrupted the boy seriously...” (p. 3, ll 88-90)...

Lab 1

...patterns do you observe based on the information in Table 4? The greater amount of Dissolved Oxygen (ppm), the greater number of fish observed. 2. Develop a hypothesis relating to the amount of dissolved oxygen measured in the water sample and the number of fish observed in the body of water. When there is more Dissolved Oxygen (ppm) in the water, the number of fish observed increases. 3. What would your experimental approach be to test this hypothesis? My experimental approach would be to replicate at least 5 “ponds” using aquatic tanks. Each tank would contain a thermometer to track the temperature and ensure all tanks maintain the same temperature. Each tank would also contain the same amount of fish to begin with (per say, 50 minnows). I would then have each tank contain a different amount of Dissolved Oxygen to test the hypothesis. I would track daily the amount of fish that remain in the tank, removing dead fish as they pass. Once each tank reaches a steady number of fish for three consecutive days, I will conclude the experiment documenting the amount of living fish that remain. This would become my data for the experiment. 4. What would be the independent and dependent variables? The independent variable (what changes) would be the amount of Dissolved Oxygen (ppm). The dependent variable (the effect of the independent variable) is the amount of fish observed. 5. What would be your control? The most important control in this experiment would be temperature.

The Somme

...and that everything was fine from living conditions to casualties. For the first time the people of Britain are witnessing the true extent of war. The camera men would take pictures of the aid posts as well as the trenches which for families and new enlists was a terrible sight and worried the nation. The photographers were wary at the time that maybe it could cause a big scene back in Britain. The generals said that the push towards the line led to so many disappointments but yet no one stopped the tactics. There was said to be the first use of tanks on the Somme which was a turning point tin the tactics and the push became easier and was the success and edge needed for no mans land. Letters and diaries from the soldiers showed the boost in moral with the tanks and how Germans were terrified of these machines of the fields and that soldiers had stepped up there fighting and German soldiers lost moral. The book also mentions the tanks were brilliant for getting across barbed wire and shell holes in the field and the protection it gave soldiers, tracks built for the worst terrain.

Case of Gm (Non-Market Environment)

...root cause is that the GM company has a unreasonable design of their gas tank on the collisions GM C/K pickups, the report shows that this pickups’ gas tank was too close with the bumper, it only 25 centimeters long. This is dangerous because that will cause explosions if there is any strike. A safety design should be place the gas tank on the top of axle or add on a shield between the gas tank and bumper. Further, the report also shows that the gas tank design was used for trucks manufactured between 1979 and 1987, and the fact is GM knows about their design problem but take no measure to fix or recall their cars because that will cause more cost. At the Moseley case happens, there are at least 130 other lawsuits involving the design of the gas tank GM need to faced. So the major issue of this case in this point is that whether the gas tank design and placement were defective and because that explosion case after their pickup was struck on the side by another vehicle. And those assumptions were proved by the GM engineer who is testified that GM company hidden the knowledge of this dangerous safety defect, but GM try to block his testimony because they had known for years and refused correct it for fear of alerting the public. Moreover, the provided videotapes of GM’s own crash tests between 1981 and 1983 showed that it’s truly dangerous when the pickup was stuck on the side by another vehicle its gas tank broke open. b.

"Happy Birthday, 1951" by Kurt Vonnegut

... 1951” “Happy Birthday, 1951”, is a short story written by Kurt Vonnegut, 2008, which begins in media res. The story is about a young boy and an old man, who is not the father of the boy. The boy was given to him as a baby, by a refugee woman. They have lived in the ruins, for 7 years, after a war and have survived by collecting things they could find or steal. One day soldiers find them and order some documents filled out. For this he needs the boy’s unknown birthdate. The boy selects a day, and becomes entitled to have a birthday and presents. The man makes a present, a cart, for the boy, but also gives him a day away from the war. The boy likes his cart, which he calls a tank. The day away from the war becomes a day to a place the boy never has been before. At the trip he sees some soldiers and a tank witch the man does not like. 2. Characterize the boy and the old man There is not mentioned much about the two characters, we do not know their age, nationality, names or birthdays. What we know is they live by themselves, poor, in the ruins after a war. “… the old man and the boy had lived in the ruins for seven years without documents …” (l. 10-11). They survive on things they steal or dig out of the cellars of the ruins. “But the old man and the boy had found all three for the digging in the catacombs of cellars beneath the shattered city, for the filching at night.” (l. 12-14). The boy is around 7 years old, no real parents, as he was given to the old man by...

That 2000 Yard Stare Analysis

...including soldier’s heart, irritable heart, traumatic neuroses, shell shock, war hysteria, combat stress reaction, Vietnam veterans syndrome, and fright neuroses, today it is called combat post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Personally, I have been diagnosed with combat PTSD and I have professionally treated other victims of combat PTSD, making it a very important subject for me. In the image, we see an expressionless soldier staring outward wide-eyed towards the viewer. His eyes are dark and glossy. He dons a dented helmet and torn cloths. His appearance gives the idea of filth and exhaustion. Behind him are three soldiers, one collapsed in a heap empty handed and in torn clothing. The other two are more remote, conversing in the back. The tank has its cannon turned and elevated a sign that it either has fired or will shortly. Behind the men, a tropical forest can be seen charred and smoking. No grass or low hanging greenery can be seen, only splintered wood and ash. Even farther back, a darkened mountain ridge comes into view; it appears barren in the distance. High above the scene two planes can be seen flying towards the mountains. The closest warfighter’s eyes are unfocused and bloodshot. The sunken orbs altogether devoid of emotion and hollow. The pupils dilated beyond what seems possible. Dark rings sit under his eyes, the reward for so many sleepless nights. His cheeks are sunken and his collarbones stick out ghoulishly. He displays no animosity, despair, or agony; yet the...

Battle of the 73rd Easting

...Air reconnaissance was limited mostly to signals intelligence data, which meant that finding where the IRG divisions were located, would be up to the 2nd ACR. Like the prairie horse soldiers of 150 years earlier, the troopers of the regiments would grope forward until they physically ran into the enemy, in this case the IRG Tawakalna Division. Generally known to be the best and most aggressive of the various IRG formations, Tawakalna was the unit that would bear the brunt of the coming battle with VII Corps. As 2nd ACR moved forward, the regiment’s three squadrons were line abreast from north to south. Each squadron had two of its three cavalry troops forward, with the other and a tank platoon in reserve behind. In 1991, armored cavalry troops were company-sized units, each with 9 M1A1 Abrams tanks, 13 M3A2 Bradley cavalry fighting vehicles, and a handful of M113-based mortar carriers and other vehicles. On the right (south) side of 2nd...

Apc - Present Trends and Future Development

...APC - PRESENT TRENDS AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT INTRODUCTION The fundamental problem of managing military research and development is that uncertainty about the enemy and the costs and benefits on new technologies make it impossible to identify the single best route to innovation. Stephen P Rosen 1. Stephen Rosen’s statement identifies one of the most challenging problems facing political and military leaders today. In an era of uncertainty, which includes a diversity of potential threats and military operations, what is the “best route” in the area of military innovation to translate limited research and development resources into capabilities to deal with current or potential threats and its allies? By the time World War I ended military theorists around the world had learned from several rude surprises. First of all, horse-drawn and foot transport really wasn't good enough in the modern world. They didn't exactly get rid of the horse but horses were extremely vulnerable to fire, and the mud characteristic of trench warfare slowed them down a bit. Men were better in mud, but not much, and could not march quickly enough. The imperatives of battle were such that soldiers had to be able to move in almost all conditions, and if breakthroughs were to be exploited, they had to move fast. 2. The realities of trench warfare came as a rude shock to officers in World War I. Machine guns, barbed wire and trenches...

The Effects Of Trenches On The Western Front

...Trenches were long narrow ditches that were dug into the ground where some soldiers lived day and night. Only a small proportion of the army would serve there. The trenches were the domain of the infantry, with the supporting arms of the mortars and machine guns. The trenches were built in the front line or in any sort of dangerous places. But behind them was a mass of supply lines, training establishments, stores, workshops, headquarters and all the other elements of the 1914-1918 system of war, in which the majority of troops were employed. Frontline trenches were usually seven feet deep and six feet wide. The conditions for the soldiers in the war were very risky. Death was a constant companion to those who were serving in the front line...
