Explain how those peripheral services are helping core service/s

Hello again:)

Well..this lecture is service management, and the professor gave us group project.
As you can see the uploaded picture and ppt, the professor wants us to MAKE OUR OWN FICTION SERVICE COMPANY. So, our group decided to go with 24 hours restaurant. Our six members assigned each of task and I’m in charge of TASK 1_(4) ” Explain how those peripheral services are helping core service/s” part. You should know that I am group member 4 and I should write about  TASK 1_(4) = (slide 6) around 150~200 words.
Actually, one of our member already finished for TASK 1_(3) “Core service/s & Peripheral service/s (at least 4 peripheral services” part, so basically you can write my part based on the slide 5.

Simply saying, you should write about ‘Explain how those peripheral services are helping core service/s for 24 hours restaurant’. MY part is only for TASK 1(4) please just focus on this. And remember our group decided to go with 24 hours restaurant. So, you can actually add more for core services and peripheral services, if it’s not enough. 

If you have any questions or don’t understand anything please let me know.

 

Project #4: Time Series Analysis

Time Series Prediction Project for BA375: Two choices

Option 1: Use one of the US Census time series linked https://www.census.gov/econ/currentdata/dbsearch?program=MRTS&startYear=1992&endYear=2017&categories=44X72&dataType=SM&geoLevel=US&notAdjusted=1&submit=GET+DATA&releaseScheduleId=%C2%A0 (Links to an external site.) (note that the Census will allow you to check seasonally adjusted or not seasonally adjusted. Youll almost certainly want not seasonally adjusted since it will help you to show that you can deal with seasonality).

Option 2: Find another time series of interest to you on the internet (any time series OK, but be sure to include a link to the data. One option: choose any subcategory of the data from class!).

Whether you choose Option 1 or Option 2, perform a time series analysis. Consider is it horizontal? Does it show a trend? Seasonality?  How about a non-seasonal cycle?  Some textbooks including Business Analytics say that non-seasonal cycles must be longer than a year (and depending on your sampling frequency those might be the only cycles you can see in your data), but of course that’s not generally true.  Biological rhythms are generally cyclic and less than a year in length, and it’s entirely possible to have cycles in the supply chain that repeat more often than yearly.

Consider smoothing (moving average or exponential smoothing). Include graphs of both. Do you believe they improve the model? Why or why not?

Here’s a quick and imperfect video (I forgot the camera was on! be merciful and toggle my face to the smaller screen!) showing you the basic steps, if it helps.  I’m following Kylene Tyler’s “Project4Tutorials.docx” if you prefer that format.

Any topic (writer’s choice)

Reading 1: Mills (in Lemert 2018)
Introduction to C. Wright Mills (p.275)
The sociological imagination (pp.275278)

Questions:
1. Lemert explained that, true to [Millss] ideal of the sociological imagination, his writings based
strong critical ideas on careful empirical work (page 275). What might this tell us about Millss
approach to research and theory?
2. What do you think Mills meant when he wrote, The sociological imagination enables us to
grasp history and biography and the relations between the two within society? (page 276)
3. What were the three sorts of questions asked consistently by the classic social analysts who
had been imaginatively aware of the promise of their work? (page 276).
4. What kind of capacity does that imagination allow? (page 276)

interactive poster or ePoster

Assessment 1: ePoster 25% weighting Individual or Group

You are to create an interactive poster or ePoster for Assessment 1.

An ePoster allows you to display information in an innovative and interesting way that is not possible with a traditional style poster. You can embed multimedia content in your poster in addition to the static items (titles, logo, summary, references). Multimedia that can be included are videos, slideshows, animations, graphs, scrolling text, and 3D rotational models. You can zoom in and out for specific sections of your ePoster (see the video below).

Your ePoster MUST include a Porter’s Value Chain for your new product, you MUST also include the most appropriate type of factory and process for your product with justification as to why you have made that selection. You may record yourself discussing why you have made your selection and embedded the video in your ePoster. The ePoster MUST have a title, your name, and the subject code. Ensure your ePoster is attractive, readable, all interactivity is working, AND you have covered all requirements.

Take note of marking requirements in the Assessment 1 rubric in your subject outline.

HUMAN ELEMENT IN NEGOTIATIONS

1. After reading this assignment, prepare a 3 page paper discussing the extent to which you agree that being prepared to interact empathically and congenially and to apply the concept of mutuality with those at the negotiating table is key to preparing for success in any negotiations.

Explain your reasoning, give some examples, and offer theoretical support from your readings. Draw on the background readings

2. Assignment Requirements: Does the paper directly address all aspects of the assignment? Have the assignment instructions been followed closely?

3. Critical Thinking: Does the paper demonstrate a college
level of analysis, in which information derived from multiple sources has been critically evaluated and synthesized in the formulation of a logical set of conclusions? Does the submission demonstrate that the student has read and understood the background materials for the module and can apply them to the assignment?

4. Writing and Assignment Organization: Is the essay logical, well organized, and well written? Are the grammar, spelling, and vocabulary appropriate for college-level work? Are section headings included? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of responding, or is justification/support instead conveyed through excessive use of direct quotations?

5. Use of Sources and Mechanics: Does the submission demonstrate that the student has read and understood the background materials for the module and can apply them to the assignment? If required, has the student demonstrated effective research, as evidenced by students use of relevant and quality sources? Does the student demonstrate understanding of a consistent (e.g., APA) style of referencing, by inclusion of proper citations (for paraphrased text and direct quotations) as appropriate? Are appropriate sources from the background material included? Have all sources cited in the paper been included on the reference list page?

RE: Discussion 1

Module 1 Discussion

Instructions:

The Tallahassee City Commission unanimously approved a resolution establishing a goal of powering municipal operations entirely with renewable sources (like wind and solar) by 2035, and community-wide by 2050 (link).

Based on what you have learned so far from this class, discuss the following:

What advantages and disadvantages are there to going to 100% renewable energy?
Assume Miami were to also go 100% renewable energy and you were in charge of the transition. Give a specific plan on how you would phase in the renewable energy and phase out the non-renewable energy and in what time frame.
Make sure to:

Write a short essay or paragraph of at least 300 words (worth 80/100 points).
Use concrete examples/details and avoid generalities.
Address all questions.
Use proper grammar and punctuation.

Any topic (writer’s choice)

Each research paper must be 3 to 5 pages (double space only…….you WILL be downgraded for a page count over five pages…..follow my instructions), excluding the bibliography and endnotes. Remember, approximately 250 TO 300 words is usually one page. Font size MUST not exceed 12 point, no excessive margins – I will strongly enforce this rule! There is NO cover page; the first page must include your name in the upper left corner, nothing more! Your bibliography is not included in the page count. Again, this is a research paper. You may also include digital references, periodicals, articles, etc. All specifics must have in text citations.  Credible research must include substantiation! Substantiation is critical. 
“IF YOU DIDN’T WRITE IT….CITE IT”…..all dates, quotes, statistical and financial data as well as historic specifics and obscurities must be properly sourced or cited in your research, otherwise it is simply not credible information.  This applies to both the two research papers as well as the term project. This actually applies to ALL research documents. 
Be sure you number each page in the lower right corner on each page, not doing so will result in a downgrade. 
In addition, the REQUIRED writing style is APA….all papers must be written in the APA style. Please refer to the website: www.apastyle.org for detailed instructions OR fitnyc.libguides.com/ citations…….please be informed, you will be downgraded if you do not follow this writing style.
The paper will focus on economic OR legal systems and OR the political landscape  OR the technological assets (again, as this applies and impacts fashion merchandising)  within your selected country. Realize your papers are only five pages maximum, so you cannot possibly cover all three topics, but there will most certainly be overlap….no problem……You will explore and research how the economic OR political and OR the legal landscape OR technology within the country has shaped apparel merchandising policies and processes, focus on one of the areas. Has the legal system or government encouraged or restricted the fashion industry within your selected country, are there any global or well known fashion or merchandising companies originating in your selected country? You could also BRIEFLY highlight how those approaches are different to merchandising done in America. I would focus on one of the topics, either the economy of the country OR the legal system OR the political landscape in your selected country, after all your research is only 3 to 5 pages, the topics may easily overlap, no problem but you must intelligently edit accordingly
Lastly, you are expected to conduct research and discuss existing ideas. Personal views, opinions and experiences are welcomed, but should not replace solid, focused and credible research as the most important component of the paper. I expected these research papers to reflect where you are in your college career, as a result, spelling, grammar, format, consulted works and substantiations will be held in the highest regard. I look forward to reading your work, enjoy the process!
