Two Options for Your Required Replies to Classmates 

Option 1 is that you will find an issue of the classmate to whom you respond with which you disagree. You must state why you believe there is a better manner to address a particular issue that differs from your classmate’s response. You must state the major idea associated with your choice and why that idea applies to the issue more appropriately. Your reply must be supported with course materials, in-text citations, and references.

Option 2 occurs if you agree with all of a particular classmate’s initial posting responses.  In that case, you must expand on one issue that your classmate presented.  Your enhancement will provide more depth or other related factors that your classmate should consider.  Your reply must be supported with course materials, in-text citations, and references.

You may use either Option 1 or Option 2 for each different classmate to whom you respond.

A response posting should be a minimum of one short paragraph. Word totals for these posts should be in the 75–150-word range.  The goal of your response posts is to extend discussions already taking place or pose new possibilities or ideas not previously voiced.  Your goal should be to motivate the group discussion and present a creative approach to the topic.  Do not merely agree or disagree, repeating what a classmate stated or what you have already stated.  Explain the ‘why or how’ with supporting evidence and concepts from the course material.  Include in-text citations and associated reference within a reference list.

Levi-Strauss Co manufactures clothing.  The quality control department measures weekly values of different suppliers for the percentage difference of waste between the layout on the computer and the actual waste when the clothing is made (called run-up).  The data is in table #11.3.3, and there are some negative values because sometimes the supplier is able to layout the pattern better than the computer (“Waste run up,” 2013).  Do the data show that there is a difference between some of the suppliers?  Test at the 1% level.

TWO:

One of the processes that I plan to use to conduct research is going to involve researching the market via the internet and obtain information from different types of literature in the same field. By researching my competitors, I will be able to get a clear overall view of the market. After identifying the findings, I will collaborate with my group peers to tailor the project in areas that provide a path to success. The Preliminary outline will consist of a basic format to include the deliverable requested and listed as follows…

  • Outline of the Business Plan
  • Strategic Planning (SWOT Analysis)
  • Mission Statement
  • Key Operating Principles
  • Market Analysis
  • 3 Time framed strategic Proposals in one-year, five-year, and ten-year increments
  • Additional information to support the strategic initiative

Elements of a Mission Statement consist of customers, products/services, markets, technology, survival, philosophy, self-concept, public image, and concern for employees.

Operating principles are important because they are the way a business place their values into motion to achieve their goals/visions.  They are great to get everyone involved and on the same page.

Additional material that contributes to the success of the project will include good communication within the organization, risk management, project closure, and proper planning.

THREE:

Some good old fashion research, Strategic Management in Dynamic Environment e-book, AIU Library, AIU learning center, discussion board, intellipath, M. U.S. E. information, prioritizing my information, organizing my thoughts, analyze my information, organizing my thoughts, analyze my material, and evaluate this process for changes and produce a awesome final comprehensive project. My plan is to work with my team to achieve the comprehensive paper.

Preliminary outline:

*Executive Summary

*Introduction-Mission statement

*Purpose-corporate culture

*Process-Consumer awareness, market goals

*Methods-SWOT

*Findings-historical direction and results

*Discussion-market plan, strategic and tactics

*Summary

*Conclusion

*Sources

Looking at my teammates outlines we are headed in the right direction and should be on point with our comprehensive paper.

What are the essential elements of a Mission Statement? In developing a mission statement, management must take into account three key elements: the organization’s history, its distinctive competencies, and its environment. Also the customer, products or services, markets and technology information is so important.

What is the purpose of a Key Operating Principle? Operating principles are the rules of the road that enable people to know what’s in bounds and what’s out on bounds in their companies and workplaces. Operating principles can serve as guides, helping people make sound decisions, building trust and enabling greater innovation. Operating principles for teams can take many forms.

What sort of additional material would best ensure success of the project? Some good old fashion research, Strategic Management in Dynamic Environment ebook, AIU Library, AIU learning center, discussion board, intellipath, M. U.S. E. information, prioritizing my information, organizing my thoughts, analyze my material, and evaluate this process for changes and producing the final comprehensive project. If complete all of the above steps, my paper will be successful and receiver a positive appropriate assessment.

Forecasting techniques have become one of businesses’ main tools. It allows a company to generate more sales by predicting future customer behavior, building marketing strategies, analyzing data, formulating strategies to increase profits, determining the standing of a company, and deducting what factors are more closely related to a product’s sale. Forecasts are usually one of the main drivers of companies’ success, while lack of predictive techniques oftentimes leads to failure. Because predictions are essential for a corporation’s decision making, it is also a fundamental part of data analysis. There are many types of data analysis tools that allow us to make relatively accurate predictions, one of them being regression analysis. Regression analysis allows us to filter out data by highlighting the relation that exists between variables and sales. Dependent variables that are proved to be strongly related to the independent variable are usually a big predictor of future sales, and hence, taken into account when forecasting. At the same time, variations on dependent variables weakly related to the independent variable have less impact and are taken out of consideration when estimating future sales. Regression analysis therefore allows us to narrow down the variables a company should be focusing on to increase profitability.

Three main issues

Lack of data is one of the biggest issues. Data collection is key for a business to establish performance goals and influence decisions. It allows us to conduct studies through observations, measurements, analysis, and forecasts. Because predictions are based on data gathered about past behavior and patterns that have been built with the passage of time, lack of access to this historical information can hinder accurate and complete predictions of the future. For example, a company that is relatively young doesn’t have sufficient data and therefore lacks clear patterns in which to base its predictions. Forecasts would be erroneous and incomplete if they were based on wrong or insufficient data. Another constraint would be inaccessibility to customers demographics data. Customers information regarding age, gender, geographical location, and economic and social status are important factors influencing sales. Knowledge about customers demographics is highly necessary to market products and analyze customers’ preference according to their personal data.

Invalid assumptions are another issue. Every model has an underlying assumption that given an x factor, something else will happen. For example, forecasting tools rely on the assumption that future sales will follow a pattern that has been created based on past occurrences. However, time-based assumptions are not always reliable since nothing is static, and times change. Due to changing times, the behavior and preferences of customers also change. The variables that used to influence products sales today may not be as influential a year from now. If a model was created several years ago, due to the time elapsed time, customers’ likings most probably changed; the old predictive model is no longer valid ore reflective of our current times. Another important factor that makes an assumption invalid relies on the possibility that the variables used in the development of a model do not entirely reflect possible outcomes. This happens when there are missing variables that were not taken into consideration when creating the model, and that are important for forecasting.

The last issue I wanted to mention is that managers sometimes can mistakenly think of a dependent variable strongly related to the independent variable as being the cause to a certain outcome. However, correlation does not imply causation. This means that although a variable may have a statistical significance in the result of an independent variable, it doesn’t necessarily constitute the cause of those results. The risk of confusing these two is that management can make the error of making important product decisions entirely based on a variable and obtaining unexpected, unwanted results. This often happens when assumptions are made based on regression analysis results only and not taking into consideration other factors.

Three lessons learned

Regression analysis allows companies to evaluate the relationship that exists between two or more variables. Regression analysis is important in the prediction of what variables have a bigger influence on sales, and what variables do not impact sales as much. Having knowledge about the elements that are highly related to sales gives companies an advantage that they didn’t use to have before. The results provide the company with information about what factors matter most, which can be ignored, and how they interact with one another. Based on these results, management can understand better supply and demand, choose one marketing strategy over another, predict what sales would look like over the following months, implement different tactics on how to increase sales, and expand its business operations.

Forecasting tools help us predict things about the future, which is key to understand the market, formulate strategies based on those predictions, arrive to conclusions, and influence decisions based on what’s best for the company. Thanks to forecasts, a company can estimate when business is going well and when it is necessary to take action. Predictions are helpful when determining a company’s performance. They will let us know when a company is not performing well, or if a decline in sales is forecasted for the next 12 months; and therefore, it allows us to make a plan of action early to avoid future declines. Businesses rely on predictive tools to strategize for the future, to see what they are lacking on, and to see what areas need improvement.

Something else that I learned from this reading is that practice companies should take into account the error term. It sometimes happens that analysis or models ignore or overlook the error term. It is important to remember that results are not always certain, therefore there should be room for errors. Probable outcomes are determined when analyzing patterns based on past behavior; however, even though we can make a possible prediction of future behavior we cannot foresee the future. Estimates claiming a 100% accurate reflection of what future outcomes will look like are not real. In real life, forecasting measures are never perfect predictors; there is always a margin of error. The error term within a statistical model allows us to understand and consider the differences that may exist between a theoretical value of the model and the actual observed results.

Three best practices

Data collection is critical. It is necessary to be careful about the data gathered and the source of that data since it may not be accurate or may not reflect actual customer behavior. The sources where we get our data from play an important role. Sometimes we get our data from internal sources such as accounting resources, sales force reports, or internal experts. On other occasions we get data from external sources such as government publications, industrial firms, whole sellers, retailers, and other corporations. It is important to ask questions regarding this topic. Where did you collect the data? How? Is it reliable? Can it be trusted? Is it an accurate measure of reality? Do we put more value on data collected internally or externally?

Because we have no control over the independent variable, it’s best if we focus on what is in the reach of our hands, what we can actually do. Instead of wasting efforts on a variable that cannot be changed or influenced, we could instead try to monitor it, study it, and perform different analysis to evaluate every possible outcome and be prepared to overcome any changes that might occur. Some examples of independent variables that could affect sales and ultimately profits are weather, customer demographics, and demand. In turn, if some changes were to occur in these independent variables, the company should try to implement new tactics such as advertising to reach new customers with different demographics or adapting our products and services to meet the needs of the customers we already have.

The last practice I think companies should follow when arriving to conclusions based on data is to not ignore intuition. Even though data is key aspect of decision making, it is also important to not just focus on the data but also on critical thinking. Factors to consider when arriving to decisions are what’s happening in the actual world. Management should not just look at predictive variables as numbers in a computer, but as real factors that influence people. An advisable way to understand customers and the market in general is to talk to people and ask them why they think they’re influenced to act in a certain manner. Ultimately, it is the customers who decide what products they want. Asking for feedback trough surveys, customer reports, satisfaction levels, five-star range reviews in online websites, and so on are good ways to determine what the public thinks about a company’s product and what they think the company could do better. These factors are as important as a forecasting analysis and management should take them into consideration when elaborating the company’s plan.

Your proposal needs to rely on one (or several) of the methods that will be discussed during term 2. For this assignment, you do not have to conduct any primary research. Your task is to design a research proposal that would explain how you would conduct the research

 

Suggested structure:

 

Introduction (100 words)

Literature review (200 words)

Proposed methodology (research methods, sample size) (200 words)

Conclusion (100 words)

 

 

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

 

Your completed assignment must be uploaded to DUO no later than 12:00 MIDDAY on 26 February 2021.

 

A penalty will be applied for work uploaded after 12:00 midday as detailed in the Programme Handbook. You must leave sufficient time to fully complete the upload process before the deadline and check that you have received a receipt.

 

 

Assignments should be typed, using 1.5 spacing and an easy-to-read 12-point font.

 

The word count should:

  • Include all the text, including title, preface, introduction, in-text citations, quotations, footnotes and any other items not specifically excluded below.
  • Exclude diagrams, tables (including tables/lists of contents and figures), equations, executive summary/abstract, acknowledgements, declaration, bibliography/list of references and appendices. However, it is not appropriate to use diagrams or tables merely as a way of circumventing the word limit. If a student uses a table or figure as a means of presenting his/her own words, then this is included in the word count.

 

Examiners will stop reading once the word limit has been reached, and work beyond this point will not be assessed. Checks of word counts will be carried out on submitted work, including any assignments or dissertations/business projects that appear to be clearly over-length. Checks may take place manually and/or with the aid of the word count provided via an electronic submission. Where a student has intentionally misrepresented their word count, the School may treat this as an offence under Section IV of the General Regulations of the University. Extreme cases may be viewed as dishonest practice under Section IV, 5 (a) (x) of the General Regulations.

 

Very occasionally it may be appropriate to present, in an appendix, material which does not properly belong in the main body of the assessment but which some students wish to provide for the sake of completeness. Any appendices will not have a role in the assessment – examiners are under no obligation to read appendices and they do not form part of the word count. Material that students wish to be assessed should always be included in the main body of the text.

 

Guidance on referencing can be found in the programme handbook and on DUO.

END OF ASSESSMENT

 

 

 

Part 1:

Discuss the possible data request scenarios in a distributed database environment.

Part 2: Respond to a post below

“Let’s discuss the data request scenarios one by one:

  1. Single request accessing a single remote database:

This is a basic scenario in which a single SQL statement is directed to a single remote DBMS, also known as a remote request.

 

  1. Multiple requests accessing a single remote database:

In this scenario, a single unit of work consists of multiple SQL statements directed to a single remote DBMS. The user can define blocks of the work using commit, rollback and save, but the remote DBMS managed the processing of this unit of work.

 

  1. Multiple requests accessing multiple remote databases:

In this case, a unit of work may be composed of multiple SQL statements directed to multiple remote DBMSes. However, any one SQL statement may access only one of the remote DBMSes. Similar to the second scenario, the local user defines the units of work using commit, rollback, etc., but the remote DBMS to which the SQL statement was directed manages the unit of work’s processing. In this scenario, a two phase COMMIT must be used to coordinate COMMIT processing for the multiple

locations.

 

  1. Multiple requests accessing any combination of multiple remote DBMSes:

In this scenario, a unit of work now may consist of multiple SQL statements addressed to multiple remote DBMSes, and

each SQL statement may address any combination of databases. Similar to the previous scenario, the local user defines the units of work using commit, rollback, etc., but the remote DBMS to which the SQL statement was directed

manages the unit of work’s processing. A two phase COMMIT must be used to coordinate COMMIT processing for the multiple locations.”

 

Part 3:

  1. How does data mining work? Discuss the different phases in the data mining process.
  2. Describe the characteristics of predictive analytics. What is the impact of Big Data (social media) in predictive analytics?

 

Part 4: Watch the video below and answer the questions

 

 

Please view the video associated with this thread

 

Based on what the presenter shares during the video, please share your idea of the following:

 

1) a future one-way ANOVA investigations  possibility that may provide additional insight to this discussion.  In your post, please may specific references to the presenter’s remarks.

 

2) one experimental design component that you noticed.  Be specific by stating what specific aspect of experimental design you are referencing and the specific example presented in the video

 

Part 5: Respond to a post below:

“The speaker explored the concept of “reasoning” Interpreting why is an important design component of this experiment. When interviewees are asked to explain their choices, they tend to reconstruct and fabricate the reasons for their original choices without realizing that the answers have been replaced. The shift in interviewees’ decisions was done by magic to manipulate the consequences of people’s choices – and then to measure why and how people felt about those changes. The conclusion can prove the hypothesis of the experiment, which has implications for the nature of self-knowledge and how people respond to manipulation.”
