...is characterized by increasing throughput and decreasing inventory and operational expense. The story progresses through Alex’s struggles at home and in the plant. Just as in everyday life, there are several victories followed by setbacks. However, through hard work and with the use of a skilled team and Jonah’s help, Alex is able to make the plant the most productive one within the UniWare division. Alex is promoted to lead the UniWare division as president and is entrusted with implementing Jonah’s business model throughout the entire division. Alex’s marital life also improves because he and his spouse resolve their conflicts. This summary is brief and leaves out many of the fictional elements that make the story such an interesting and fast-paced read. I encourage anyone that is interested in learning about manufacturing a product to read Goldratt’s book. It is the most efficient way to understand the challenges involved in the manufacturing processes. In this essay, I will focus on the business model Goldratt describes.

A análise do programa de educação sensorial mostrou um grande aumento da capacidade de descrever as sensações provocadas pelos alimentos, mas apenas uma pequena melhora na preferência por alimentos saudáveis e na diminuição da tendência de não querer provar novos alimentos (neofobia). Acredita-se que a propaganda massiva de alimentos processados, bem como a vasta disponibilidade destes no ambiente escolar e familiar (talvez até mesmo durante o período gestacional) tenha um impacto maior nas crianças. Entretanto, programas desse tipo trazem uma nova perspectiva no combate à cultura do fast food. Referência: Reverdy, C. Sensory Education: French Perspectives. In: Preedy VR et al., editor.

Headquartered in the United States, the company began in 1940 as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald; in 1948 they reorganized their business as a hamburger stand using production line principles. Businessman Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent in 1955. He subsequently purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers and oversaw its worldwide growth. A McDonald's restaurant is operated by either by a franchisee, an affiliate, or the corporation itself. The corporation's revenues come from the rent, royalties and fees paid by the franchisees, as well as sales in company-operated restaurants. McDonald's revenues grew 27 percent over the three years ending in 2007 to $22.8 billion, and 9 percent growth in operating income to......

The Fast Food Industry

...Case 2 The Fast Food Industry A Porter 5-forces model of the fast food industry-----Wu Rongrong The threat of new entrants in the fast food industry is high. Because there are no legal barriers which would keep them from entering the industry. The major barriers in which a firm faces in the industry are the economies of scale and the access of the distribution. In order for a firm to enjoy success in the industry, they must spend a large amount of capital on advertising and marketing. The industry is very competitive because firms are always attempting to steal customers from each other. Access for distribution is crucial in the restaurant industry because if the customer can’t see you or access you easily it’s possible that they won’t go out of there way to eat there. Franchise options also make is easier to enter the market, for example Subway has built their strategic plan around franchise options. Therefore, initially the only cost to enter the market is the starting capital required to open a restaurant. (1) On the one hand, the entry barriers are low. Most fast food restaurants are small size without any advantage. There is no brand advantage for the lack of famous brand, and the capital requirement is low. The resource is more, and the existing fast food restaurant cannot form barriers for the resources. Besides, the cost is low, and the existing fast food restaurant doesn’t have rich production experience and management technology. On the other hand, the......

Holding Fast

...launched a radical–albeit still buggy–new technology. Can the company afford to sit out the revolution? Holding Fast by John T. Gourville “N DANIEL VASCONCELLOS ow remember, with every blow of the hammer, you’ve got to feel the femoral nail advancing through the bone. If you don’t, then for heaven’s sake, stop. It might be impinging on the cortex or it might be too large for the canal. Keep whacking, and you’ll fracture the cortex.” The trainer’s calm, authoritative voice boomed out across the room as a dozen orthopedic surgeons toiled away on the cadaver limbs laid out before them. Pausing to observe the technique of one of the surgeons, he glanced up to see his boss, CEO Peter Walsh, crack open the door and squeeze through, trying his best to be unobtrusive. The trainer glanced at the clock.“Okay, let’s save some of this fun for the afternoon,” he called out. “We’ll meet in the lobby in ten minutes and walk over to lunch.” In addition to making a range of products from artificial hips to scalpels, Crescordia was one of a handful of major companies that developed, manufactured, and sold the steel and titanium plates, nails, and screws – known as fix- ation devices – that surgeons used to repair broken bones. At least twice a month, Crescordia hosted training sessions like this one for orthopedic surgeons who used the company’s products. Walsh joined the group for lunch as often as possible. It was a great opportunity to connect with the physicians and hear......

Fast Food

...All such food is categorized as fast food which can be prepared and served quickly. Restaurants and kiosks provide fast food with precooked or preheated ingredients and usually served at a packaged form (Pollan, 2009). In the beginning, American hamburger and fries was considered as the traditional fast food but now the field has been widely diversified and food like pizzas, fish and chips, burgers from McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken etc. are all considered fast food. Fast food market has shown an enormous and steady growth. In 2006 alone the market has reached to $102.4 billion with an annual growth rate of 4.8% (Adams, 2007). Fast food chains like McDonalds operate in more than 126 countries in six continents having more than 31,000 restaurants globally (Arndt, 2007). Burger King, another worldwide fast food chain, has operations in more than 65 countries of the world; KFC restaurants located over 25 countries, Subways is present in 90 countries with total 39,129 restaurants and so and so forth (Buthrie, Lin & Frazao, 2002). However, according to most of researches, fast food is not at all fit for health and can cause serious problems. According to Marion Nestle, Chair of New York University’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health, “the increased calories in American diets come from eating more food in general, but especially more of foods high in fat (meat, dairy, fried foods, grain dishes with added fat), sugar (soft drinks, juice drinks,......

...would disagree with our decision to cover the topic in just one chapter and as part of operations strategy at all. They would say that new product and service development is one of the three major processes that any organization must master in order to succeed (the other two of course being operations and marketing). We would agree with this. In fact, it is because the topic is so important that we include it within our broad treatment of operations strategy; it is not that new product and service development is a subset of operations strategy, rather it is that no operations strategy could regard itself as complete without an understanding of how it interrelates with new product and service development strategy. The way have decided to treat the subject is to look at it through an operations strategy “lens” and explain it in terms of one of the models we introduced earlier – the operations strategy matrix. Most of the chapter is devoted to developing that particular perspective. However, prior to that it discusses the relationship between new product and service development and process development. Key points • While the development of new product and service ideas has always been a significant activity in most companies, it is getting more important. The chapter opens by looking at some of the reasons for this, and more importantly, dividing them into those which are based on an operations resource perspective and those which are based on a market requirements......

Fast Food

...Negative Impacts of Fast Food America is one the countries that have the most oversize population in the world and every day one of four Americans visits fast food restaurants. Fast food is usually packed with fat, sugar and salt which make it so unhealthy. There are many different reasons people go to fast food restaurants rather than eating at home. People eat at fast food restaurant because it is convenient, cheap, tasty and quick. We no longer live in the good old days when women would stay home to cook, clean, and take care of the kids. Women have invaded the work industry by taking over jobs that in the past only men would have, and now share those jobs with men. Nowadays, most of the women are really busy to go for grocery shopping, come back home, unpack the food, and then cook it; so they prefer to go to fast food restaurant like McDonald’s. Many families are choosing fast food restaurants instead of fancy restaurants in this bad economy situation, because fancy restaurants charge much more money than fast food and people would rather eat at those places with family only on special occasions. However parents know that the fast food doesn’t have good nutrition balance for their children. In addition, some people who don’t have families and they live by themselves visit fast food because of their busy schedule. They are too busy to cook. In conservation with one of the poll on mid March, she says that she works full time and she goes to school part time, so she......

...organizations. Now, as the cost of that neglect grows ever clearer, they are not finding it easy to rebuild their lost excellence in production. In most of these companies, the bulk of their labor force and assets are tied to the manufacturing function. The attitudes, expectations, and traditions that have developed over time in and around that function will be difficult to change. Companies cannot atone for years of neglect simply by throwing large chunks of investment dollars at the problem. Indeed, it normally takes several years of disciplined effort to transform manufacturing weakness into strength. In fact, it can take several years for a company to break the habit of “working around” the limitations of a manufacturing operation and to look on it as a source of competitive advantage. In practice, of course, the challenge for managers is The past several years have witnessed a growing awareness among American managers of the central importance to competitive success of first-rate competence in the work of production. At the top of many corporate agendas now rests the determination to boost productivity, product quality, and new product innovation. This is all to the good. What managers still lack, however is a powerful descriptive framework for understanding how their manufacturing organizations are contributing overall strategic goals, as well as the other kinds of contribution those organizations could be asked to make.
