Q2 Why were (a) Lourdes and (b) Greg so interested in having the company change its cost system? The both have 2 concern, better decision making and bigger bonuses. Lourdes concern that if she has better information she can make better pricing decision and do better sales planning. While Greg will have better info for making process improvement which can reduce the cost. the information they have might lead to production in larger batches and lesser shipment. if they make better decision making, this will lead to higher profits and larger bonuses.
Q3 What are the effect, if any, of changing the company’s costing method? Specifically, are the differences between these three methods significant in term of? a) Their effect on individual product costs? Changing the costing method does have material effects on product costs: ODD TGD Existing costing method 232.00 255.00 Proposed ABC method 211.96 295.08 “In-between” method 218.12 282.76

Both direct material and direct labor cost are mostly similar in all systems. The difference are in the assignment of overheads to product. Althought the production of the 2 products use different amount of overhead, they are still been allocated equally in the existing system The proposed ABC system uses multiple cost pools, which better effect the individual products consumption of overhead resources. The ODD get less overhead, so full reported cost go down (-8.6%)relative to the old system. The TGD get high overhead, so full reported cost goes up (+15.7%) This cost will give material effect on some management decisions, such as pricing…...

II. Clean Air Act Regulatory Programs A. Air-Quality Regulation 1. The centerpiece of the Clean Air Act is the national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) program, which addresses pervasive pollution that endangers public health and welfare. 2. NAAQS have been established for six pollutants: a. Sulfur dioxide b. Nitrogen dioxide c. Particulate matter d. Carbon monoxide e. Ozone f. Lead 3. For each of these pollutants, NAAQS are set at levels designed to protect public health with an adequate margin of safety (referred to as the primary NAAQS) and to protect public welfare against known or anticipated adverse effects (the secondary NAAQS) a. Areas that do not meet one or more of the knacks are known as nonattainment areas and must comply with a number of special requirements to bring them into attainment. b. NAAQS are to be reviewed and revised as appropriate at least every five years. 4. State implementation plans a. The Clean Air Act gives each state primary responsibility for ensuring that emissions from sources within its borders are maintained at a level consistent with the NAAQS. b.

Safety

...CHAPTER 16: SAFETY Based on past studies, the water and wastewater industry has one if the highest injury rates in the nation. Workers in these areas are involved in construction and excavations, confined spaces, hazardous chemicals, and mechanical equipment that pose a serious injury risk when proper training, equipment, and procedures are not utilized. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for developing regulations regarding worker safety and protection. Employers are responsible for providing employees with the proper safety equipment and training in its use. They are also responsible for development and implementation of safety policies for their workplace. The employees, after proper training, are responsible for recognizing the safety issues; following approved safety procedures, and properly utilizing the associated safety equipment. Lock Out/Tag Out (LOTO) Lock out/tag out regulations deal with the need to isolate a machine from its energy source to prevent it from starting while work is being done in and around the equipment. Energy sources can include electrical energy, hydraulic energy, pneumatic energy, thermal energy, and chemical energy. This can be either active energy or stored energy. Stored energy can take many forms. Some examples of stored energy are; electrical energy stored in capacitors, pneumatic energy stored in a compressor tank, and hydraulic water pressure in an isolated line. Any stored energy must...

Health&Safety

... INTRODUCTION/ HISTORY Companies suffer a considerable loss due to accidents, and it is reflected in paying insurance cost, repair of the damage machinery, slowing down of production, additional charges on training of new specialists, and so on. Thus, a special system of accident investigation or, in other words, loss causation investigation is widely in practice. Accident investigations are conducted not only to prevent material loss, physical injury or corrective measures – the point is also to assure that the injured worker gets all material compensation necessary, or, instead, to oppose false insurance claims. Thus, inadequate safety program is reflected in the lack of workers training, necessary inspections of the equipment and so on. Inadequate safety program standards are evident when workers do not understand the peculiarity of the safety program and how to apply it, that is why insufficient compliance to standards occurs. Before a loss occurs (Injury, illness, damage, loss in process), there are series of events that take place with a root cause that begins this series of events. The root cause is called a Lack of Control (Inadequate standards, lack of compliance for preparedness, knowledge and skill training, etc). This leads to a basic cause (or personal factor) such as lack of knowledge, stress, inadequate capabilities. This in turn leads to an immediate cause (substandard conditions and actions) such as operating without authority, working under the influence......

Perez) In the paper “Using fault trees to determine the root cause of rotating equipment failures”, the author, Robert X Perez, explains through his own experience as a senior reliability engineer at Citgo Petroleum Corporation, and through examples of various events in different systems the importance of finding the root cause(s) of failures in rotating equipment. The author explains these “major failures causing significant undesired events are the result of a series of events, and compares it to the reaction of a domino line being tipped over by a single domino chip. And studying chain of event, or probable scenarios is at the heart of RFCA’s” (Perez) The author focuses on FTA (Fault tree analysis) as a tool to determine such root causes. And gives examples of cases where use of these tools could have OR have prevented multiple damages due to one component failure causing failure in surrounding components. RCFA – Root Cause Failure analysis “Root Cause Failure analysis is a structured process to identify any physical, human and latent causes of undesirable event(s).And how such a process can be used in achieving continuous plant reliability improvements by targeting mechanical and organizational deficiencies in a process facility” (Perez).

Electronic Monitoring

...The widespread use of electronic devices during the Information Age has led to the electronic monitoring of employees by employers. It has become necessary for employers to provide computers, email, and internet access to its employees to conduct business efficiently. This type of access has provided misguided employees with the opportunity to conduct personal business and illegal activities at work. In an effort to address these risks many employers have implemented electronic monitoring tools. Employee monitoring is generally considered to be any type of tracking method used to watch what an employee does while at work. Electronic monitoring is monitoring employees' e-mail, computer files, voice mail, telephone use, as well as the use of video and audio surveillance, computer network monitoring, and keystroke monitoring. According to a 2008 survey done by the American Management Association, sixty six percent of the respondents stated that they were engaged in the electronic monitoring of their employees. Many reasons exist for employers to electronically monitor their employees. The monitoring of employees can lead to results that are beneficial to the employer. One reason employers cite for monitoring employees is to keep employee productivity from decreasing. Internet access allows employees to surf the internet for business purposes but employers fear that they will use it unproductively by visiting travel websites, recipe sites, message boards, shopping......

Hands Free Devices and the Safety of Drivers

...Hands-free devices and the safety of drivers The different ways that technology implements itself in the lives of drivers has a direct correlation with driver safety. One important aspect regarding safety is how our time is spent as drivers. The use of a cell phone while driving raises many concerns – as well as solutions for those concerns. Drivers are already presented with a multitude of distractions, whether they be physical, such as billboards, construction sites, and the fast food being handed to you as you leave the drive-thru, our own innocent thoughts like, “what’s for dinner?”, and audible distractions like the music on the radio, or the voice coming from your cell phone. Although cell phones and the technology associated with them can be a very valuable convenience to society, controversy remains as to whether this technology improves safety behind the wheel. One of the more obvious advantages when it comes to the debate over hands-free devices is that the technology frees up our body and allows for a quicker response in the event that you need to avoid a hazard in the road. When your safety and the safety of those around you depends on it, being tied down by your phone during a split second decision can significantly increase room for error. Although wearing something like a bluetooth headset might sound like a great idea, it may not translate to safer driving. Recent studies compared the the use of hands free devices with drunk drivers. It was found that......

In addition, the processes by which health professionals are licensed and accredited have focused only limited attention on the prevention of medical er­ rors, and even these minimal efforts have confronted resistance from some health care organizations and providers. Many providers also perceive the medical liabil­ ity system as a serious impediment to sys­ tematic efforts to uncover and learn from errors. Exacerbating these problems, most third-party purchasers of health care provide little financial incentive for health care organizations and providers to im­ prove safety and qua lity.

Security Monitoring

...Security Monitoring Mobin Bahrami University of Phoenix Information Systems Risk Management CMGT/442 June 22, 2012 Brian Hoff Intro Security monitoring is an important factor in keeping any organization network safe as various attacks are on a rise. A company constantly must practice monitory techniques to keep their data safe. " The first step is to scan the internal and external environment and identify information technology risks before they become a problem. The key is to be proactive rather than reactive" (Marilyn Greenstein). Different organization consist of many applications that require a certain level of security measures and risk assessment. To determine the associated risks within an organization each application needs to be thoroughly reviewed. Also risks may vary between internal and external applications. Many organizations remain profitable and grow by creating a good mixture of information technology and e-commerce. E-commerce focuses mainly on the product marketing and Internet sales, while information technology (IT) team handle all aspects of the organizations network. Malicious attacks, natural disasters, and internal breach are all good cause to maintain a security monitoring system. Network Security Systems Security event monitoring involves monitoring activities that occur on a computer system such as, recording information and analyzing recorded data to identify any potential risks. Organizations must have a secure network to stay......
