Ron's Tire

...Ron’s Tire and Battery Emporium D’Anna Case Ron Flores Martha Gonzales University of Phoenix Ron’s Tire and Battery Emporium Ron’s Tire Shop began when Ron returned from his time in the Army and the Gulf War. After serving six years in the Army, Ron wanted a business of his own where he would be his own boss, no more taking orders from anyone. He had been successful in his small tire shop and had made several good investments over the years, so he decided to expand and take his business into the information technology age. With the help of his friendly banker and the fact that he qualified for a small business grant, he was now able to do just that. Although he did not vote for him, he was thanking President Obama and his several business stimulus grants that were available for people just like him. History of Business Ron’s Tire Shop began in the early 1990’s. The business started with just Ron using his mechanic skills learned in the Army. Soon the business was too much for him alone, and he hired another ex-Army buddy to help him handle the workload. The customers welcomed the personal touch and did not seem to mind if it took some time to order just the right tire or wheel for their vehicle. At that time, the business did not keep an inventory of tires. Everything was special ordered especially for the customer. As his customer base grew, Ron began to think of expansion. Although most people do not like to hire or work with relatives, Ron hired his...

Canadian Tire

...Canadian Tire Check-Out Configuration Glennt Butt the Vice-president of Canadian Tire has to make a decision in a short period of time. He has one month left to decide which check out configuration to implement in the next generation of stores. This is a very important election, since the future profits and clients depend on the lay-out and on their experience in Canadian Tire stores. From my point of view I would choose to implement the single line lay out. After calculating some data, the second option appears to be as the most profitable and effective check –out configuration: * Maintaining the tandem check –out configuration: It requires a total investment of $65.400 using a total space of 150m2 which represents a 3% of the store. This kind of configuration may cause some problems when there is a pick of costumers. As they can only stand in one line, if the queue takes more time as usual the client must feel anxious and disappointed with its experience in our stores. Furthermore, when the business is slow a lot of space would be wasted. * Single Line Implementing the single line configuration implies an investment of $57.000 occupying a total space of 125 m2. In comparison with the tandem configuration we gain 25 m2 more, which means $70.000 of profit per year. The line would be much faster, as the cashier would be working in a more effective way. Moreover the costumer would have a better buying experience as they could go to the fastest register and would...

Goodyear Tire

...Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company Goodyear is one of the world's leading tire companies. This strategic plan for Goodyear will focus on their passenger vehicle. The plan will focus on ways to strengthen the internal and external methods to ensure that products remain at the best they can be for consumers. In doing this, we will concentrate on pricing, product placement, positioning, and most importantly promotion. Promotion has continued to drive the business and this plan will focus on it continuing to do so for years to come. Company Background & Milestones: It all began in 1898. Goodyear’s founder, Frank A. Seiberling, purchased the company’s first plant with a $3,500 down payment. With just 13 employees, Goodyear production began with a product line of bicycle and carriage tires, and horseshoe pads. Since the first bicycle tire in 1898, Goodyear pedaled its way toward becoming the world’s largest tire company, a title it earned in 1916 when it adopted the slogan "More people ride on Goodyear tires than on any other kind," becoming the world’s largest rubber company in 1926. Today, Goodyear measures sales of nearly $20 billion. Goodyear is currently the No. 1 tiremaker in North America and Latin America. Goodyear is also Europe's second largest tiremaker. In 2011, Goodyear posted net sales of $22.8 billion, up 21% over 2010. Net income available to common shareholders was $321 million in 2011. Goodyear operates 53 plants in 22 countries.

Tire City Case

...To: Mr. Martin From: Calton Chung Date: 2/26/14 ------------------------------------------------- Re: Preliminary Discussions with MidBank Mr. Martin, Even though our sales have been increasing 20% each year and we’re still very profitable, earning 5 cents per dollar we make, we’re still going to need some additional funding from MidBank. As you may have seen in the past few years, Tire City Inc. has been rapidly growing these past few years. TCI has planned to invest money to expand the warehouse in 1996. This investment in our warehouse will fill our chain stores faster to meet customer needs. The company needs external funding because based on my estimations, we can make more profit. Having said that, you can see our financial projections of 1996 and 1997 below in exhibit 1 and 2.   | Pojections of 1996 | Total Assets | 15088.00 | Total liabilities | 13674.00 | Cumulative need for funds | -1414 | Exhibit 1   | Pojections of 1997 | Total Assets | 17437.00 | Total liabilities | 15231.039 | Cumulative need for funds | -2207 | Exhibit 2 We would need to come up with $1,552,000.00 from for the first year, and $2,224,000.00 for the following, with a total of $3,621,000.00 I believe this extra funding is necessary because of the long term goals we have for the company. I can understand if you think this might be a little excessive, but I can assure you that this funding is completely necessary. First of all, I kept...

Canadian Tire

...External Environment Natural and physical environment The variety of consumer goods that general merchandisers like Canadian Tire provide, there are several sustainability considerations for the business. These include decisions on where to source manufactured goods and the pollution effects of the manufacturing processes. Although many retailers have either outsourced or offshored manufacturing to Asia (Deloitte Touche Tomatsu, 2003) where cheaper labour and lax environmental standard make production less costly, North America still retains a huge manufacturing capacity. In addition, energy use in manufacturing and its impact on the natural environment can have an effect on cost and consumer perceptions. The shelf-life of consumer goods and their recyclability contribute to the growth of landfills, and retailers must balance this environmental issue with the need to grow sales and innovate new products regularly. Chemical-based products like pesticides, fertilizers, gasoline, propane, motor oils, et cetera, also contribute to environmental pollution by consumers of these goods, therefore retailers have a responsibility of ensuring that their impact is minimised. Societal environment Economic The retail business in North America is cyclical and most sales occur in the fourth quarter of operations which usually includes the months of November and December. However, a combination of high debt levels and low consumer confidence has resulted in lower than expected growth in......

Lima Tire Company

...Strategies in U.S. Organizations A key strategic issue for all corporations in the United States involves labor relations (Mello, 2009, p. 540); the programs utilized within U.S. organizations may impact employee morale, productivity, adaptability and cooperation. Labor relations involve management’s ability to or strategies utilized to prevent and resolve workplace issues with employees. For example, Germany's Volkswagen utilizes a program called, Works Councils (Finkin, & Kochan, 2014). This program allows employees to share their work to reduce working hours rather than allow management to lay off employees at the company. On the other hand, Southwest Airlines, and Kaiser Permanente tailored programs specific to fit their individual company needs (Finkin, & Kochan, 2014). Lima Tire Company, a subsidiary of Treadway Tire Company was having issues with high operational cost and high turnover among foremen. Although the programs that were designed to control labor relations for the company; they were not effective as the company hoped. The company still faced the issue of a dysfunctional organization (Skinner, & Beckham, 2008). So, what are some of the strategies utilized by U.S. union free organizations today and why is it critical to the success of an organization to meet its goals and mission? This paper presents a summary of Lima Tire Company, a non-unionized organization, provides an alternative to handling its major problems, and provides a recommendation to...

Treadway Tire

...Executive Summary The Treadway Tire Company operates many different plants throughout North America that manufacture and sell tires to a variety of markets. The plant located in Lima, Ohio is currently experiencing high turnover rates among line foremen and Ashley Wall, Director of Human Resources, has made it a priority to solve the problem. To deal with an increased workload, the plant runs continuous operations, requiring employees on site 24 hours a day. There are 50 line foremen at the Lima plant that supervise the hourly personnel and maintain daily operations. Out of these 50 foremen, 23 positions turned over in the current year. This, nearly 50% turnover rate, made it clear that something needed to change in order to retain workers. Line foremen deal with a variety of job duties during each 12 hour shift. They are faced with everything from personal problems to maintenance issues, all while attempting to appease the hourly workers and general managers. The stress and frustration placed on the foremen has taken its toll on employee morale and company production. The company recognizes a need for formal training to combat the problems with the foremen position, but the plant lacks the financial resources to implement this idea. As an alternative, it is recommended that the plant implement an employee mentorship and training program to help aide line foremen in their roles. Losing and replacing employees is time consuming and costly, making it imperative that...

...Danny Lopes July 8th, 2013 Mr. Abramowitz English 112 Artesia “The village of Artesia formally became a community when the Artesia School District was established on May 3, 1875. The first school was located at the corner of 183rd St. and Alburtis Ave. The school house was a rustic timbered two-story building with a classroom on each floor. On the first day of school, 44 students enrolled. Artesia got its name from the many naturally flowing Artesian wells in the area. This rural countryside with its rich soil and abundant water supply was ideal for farming. Artesians grew grapes, sugar beets, other vegetables and fruits. They raise poultry and were dairy farmers. Nurseries grew ferns and flowers.In the 1920’s and 1930’s, Dutch and Portuguese experts in the dairy industry developed Artesia into one of the most important dairy districts in Southern California. After World War II, the land became valuable to developers who wanted to build homes. To meet this pressure, the City of Dairy Valley was incorporated in 1956. Dairy Valley later became the city of Cerritos. The demand for land became so great that the dairymen sold their dairies and moved their operations to the east in Chino and to Central California.”("The official artesia," ) “The Artesia Water Tower, the familiar inactive water storage tank located on Clarkdale Avenue just south of 183rd Street, has been a familiar site for citizens of Artesia for many years. However, little is known of its...

Tire City, Inc. Case Discussion

...1). The current financial health of Tire City, Inc. can be determined by looking at its financial statements, and converting the information on them into a number of different ratios, which give analysts information about the financial activities/health of the firm. These ratios include (but are not limited to) the current ratio, acid test, profit margin, total asset turnover, and return on equity. The current ratio measures short term solvency, or the firm’s ability to pay off its short term debt. TCI’s current ratio is 2.03, a healthy indication. This means that for every dollar of short term debt the firm carries, it holds $2.03 in current assets. This means that the company is not facing any significant threat from its short term lenders. The acid test is basically a refined version of the current ratio, deducting inventories from the current assets of the firm, because of their illiquidity. The acid test for TCI in 1995 is 1.35. This is notably lower than the current ratio, which may indicate that TCI is holding too much inventory, but 1.35 is still a generally healthy acid test ratio. The profit margin and total asset turnover of TCI are 5.06% and 2.61, respectively. These numbers are used in the DuPont Equation to calculate Return on Equity, generally a good measure of a firm’s financial health. The ROE for TCI is 23.73%, which by most investors’ standards is a very strong return. The forecasted ROE for 1996 for TCI is 32.67%, an even stronger return. The overall...

...Jerran K. McClenton November 2015 AJS/514 City Demographics and Crime Profile Social learning theory considers the formation of an individual’s identity to be a learned response to what a person has been raised around or adapted to. In Memphis, Tennessee, many people within this state are influenced to criminal behavior at a very young age. According to WREG Memphis Channel 3 news, Memphis was only just ranked below Detroit and Oakland, California, but the Chair of the Crime Commission Ben Adams said he isn't sure how accurate the rankings are. Cordarro Vaughn's a lifelong Memphian, and he was anything but surprised when he heard the FBI labeled Memphis the third most dangerous city in the country (Rufener,Katie, 2015). When we talk about events or attitudes to a explanation of beliefs people reside in Memphis, Tennessee would accept for explaining criminal behavior, it points out the general connection of socialization opposed to the individual mindset. The social learning theory believes that an individual’s identity is not the product of the unconscious, but instead is the result of modeling oneself in response to the expectations of others. Behaviors and attitudes develop in response to reinforcement and give hope to the people around them. While social learning theorists acknowledge that childhood experience is important, they also believe that the identity people is formed by the behaviors and attitudes of others. Another factor that contributes to Memphis...

...Essay on Business Growth and Development Businesses today cannot afford to stand still because of the changes that are taking place in the world. In the ancient times, the population was manageable, and people could use the available resources for the family needs to sustain them. In the modern world and with the changes in technology, there has been difficulty because people are experiencing high living standards and more demand of resources. This study features on ways that a business can use to deliver products that are essential to the population, which rapidly grows in the world, and the adaption methods to both social and demographic changes. It will also outstanding on the technological impact to the business operations and reliability in the ensuring that they meet people’s needs. The development in technology has led to increase in the number of people in the world, leading to faster depletion of resources. This, therefore, necessitates improvement in company production and improved services so that they can be able to meet the increased requirements of the population. These companies also need to adapt to both social and demographic changes to enable them work efficiently and effectively (Wothington & Britton, 2009, 12). Growing firms invest more in Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) and are more efficient in terms of the services and products that they offer.

... or poisons. It appeals to consumers who want a humane alternative to spring traps. Furthermore, with Trap-Ease, consumers can avoid the unpleasant mess they encounter with the violent spring-loaded traps—there are no clean-up problems. Finally, the consumer can reuse the trap or simply throw it away. Martha’s early research suggested that women were the best target market for the Trap-Ease. Men, it seems, were more willing to buy and use the traditional spring-loaded trap. The targeted women, however, did not like the traditional trap. They often stay at home and take care of their children. Thus, they want a means of dealing with the mouse problem that avoids the unpleasantness and risks that the standard trap creates in the home. To reach this target market, Martha decided to distribute Trap-Ease through national grocery, hardware, and drug chains such as Safeway, Zellers, Canadian Tire, and Shoppers Drug Mart. She sold the trap directly to these large retailers, avoiding any wholesalers or other intermediaries. The traps sold in packages of two, with a suggested retail price of $2.99. Although this price made the Trap-Ease about five times more expensive than smaller, standard traps, consumers appeared to offer little initial price resistance. The manufacturing cost for the Trap-Ease, including freight and packaging costs, was about 31 cents per unit. The company paid an additional 8.2 cents per unit in royalty fees. Martha priced the traps to...
