Schedules and plans play a vital role in any project even more so in the manufacturing sector. Production schedules not only affect an organizations cash flow and finances, but also have huge impact on the entire organizations especially supply chain and human resource. Like most capital intensive industries, Boeings management exercises a high degree of control over the schedule of the 767 program and works tirelessly to adhere to the defined schedule. This over dependence on schedules may be observed through the number of meeting each manager attends to ensure that production schedule and the fact that mangers fear delays more than budget overrun (Haaz, Boeing 767 from concept to production). This form of management control may be associated with the high profile nature of the project, as each delay would not only affect the client but also impact Boeings’ brand image. However, such heavy emphasis on the schedules often expose a risk of budget overruns, workforce problems and deviation from actual manufacturing standards.
For a highly structured management style to be effective it requires extreme support from the entire supply chain, labor unions and most importantly a very stable market. Although Boeing had a few confirmed orders before initiating the project there could have been an unforeseen event that could have forced Boeings’ clients to delay or even cancel the orders. An example of this is seen in 1987 when the monthly production on the 767 dropped from eight to two because of changing demographics in the airline industry and altered routing structure. Such changes are very difficult to forecast in any industry and a rigid schedule often results in the manufacturer incurring unnecessary cost. These production changes are generally accompanied by manpower reduction and could potentially make Boeing an unattractive option for employees seeking long term…...

Peter Singer

...In Peter Singer’s essay “The Singer Solution to World Poverty,” he explores the possibilities of each and every American giving up about 2/3 of his/her income. However, rather than simply talking of his own solution as another theory, he tells the reader in so many words (literally) that he/she is wrong. A large chunk of the essay is basically a big middle finger to everyone reading it. It is almost as though Singer wanted to invoke anger out of the reader so that he/she would then go and donate money to charity, so as to say something along the lines of “You lookie here, Singer, I’m not who you say I am.” Some people might think that Singer is just out of his mind, but I think he was angering the reader by making harsh accusations on purpose. Singer opens his essay with a ridiculous story from a film about a fictional woman named Dora. In the story, Dora is a “retired schoolteacher who makes ends meet by sitting at the station writing letters for illiterate people.” First off, how could anyone make enough money to live comfortably like that? She ends up selling a homeless boy to what she is told to be a “wealthy family.” Her neighbor somehow knows that this is not the case, that the boy will be put to death and his organs sold. Second of all, how does the neighbor know this? This accusation is not explained. Dora then goes home with her brand new television, feels guilty, and takes the boy back. Why would Dora do this without further research? She has no proof other than......

Peter Drucker

...Peter Drucker is generally regarded as the godfather of modern management. Drucker’s major contribution to management is not a single idea, but rather an entire body of work that has one massive advantage: virtually all of it is fundamentally right. The third question in “The Five Most Important Questions by Peter Drucker” is ‘What Does Your Customer Value?’ You cannot arrive at the right definition of results without significant input from your customers. (Drucker, 1998) What satisfies their needs, wants and aspirations is so complicated that it can only be answered by customers themselves. (Economy, 2013) There are no unfair customers, at least in terms of their own reality and situation. Customer needs are material and psychological well-being. Wants are when, where and how service is supplied. Aspirations are preferred long-term outcomes. What does the customer value, is the least often asked question yet it is most important to know. Providing value to the customers includes making products or delivering services that offer solutions to their problems. The better the solution is the more value that can be produced. (Kloeber, 2011) People are so convinced that they are doing the right things. Instead of asking ‘Does it deliver value to our customers?’ they ask, ‘Does it fit our rules?’ And that not only reduces performance but also destroys vision and dedication. Methods of understanding what customers value involve collecting or analyzing customer information,......

It’s like having Peter at your side.” —Bob Buford, author, Halftime and Finishing Well, and founding chairman, Peter F.

This helpful revision of his classic Self-Assessment Tool offers managers and leaders in every sector—nonprofit, business, and government—a useful guide to figuring out what’s needed, why it matters, and how to make it work.

Peter Olafson

...Peter Olafson Peter Olafson is a general manager that reflects poor general management skills. In his messy situation he has much to deal with, but he has much better ways to handle them. Olafson needs to learn how to manage his boss, stop avoiding conflict and ask for better resolutions rather than just trying to fix an employee his way. After these minor adjustments in his managing techniques Olafson would be a remarkable general manager. As a general manager, Olafson greatly needed instruction on managing his boss or maybe even bosses. It starts when Olafson is confused on who he is to report to. He is under the impression it was supposed to be the president, but just allows the reporting chain to happen. He did not by any means bring this up to anyone. He could have simply asked to get clarification, perhaps if this was clarified maybe he would’ve been able to report to both of them and get the support he so desperately needed. Regardless, he began reporting to Harvey. As Harvey as his manager he had several complaints as the support he was receiving from him, and the suggestions he did receive he negated as wrong and disagreed with them. Where it isn’t necessarily wrong to disagree with his manager, he did not offer any suggestions as to what type of supported he needed. Olafson only complained about what he was missing. Olafson should have asked Harvey for coaching from experienced personnel whom have accomplished the pre-operating phases successfully. In the......

Peter the Great

...Peter the Great By: Sundeep Vaswani Pyotr Alexeevich, or Peter I the Great, was born on May 30, 1672 to Tsar Alexi the First and his second wife Natalya Kryillovna Naryshkina. He started out sharing ruling power with his half-brother Ivan, and gained full power to the throne when he was 24. Peter the Great was a good ruler because he tried to modernize, or westernize, Russia with his government, military and domestic reforms, even though some of these reforms stuck when he died. Peter thought that the government was in a dire need of reform. He tried to reform all aspects of the government, from local government, to the provincial government, all the way to the central government (Site 4, Paragraph 1). He first started with the local government. He tried to limit the power of the provincial government by letting the towns elect own officials, collect revenue and stimulate trade. The towns were governed by the elective board, which replaced the old system of sheriffs. (Site 4, paragraph 2). To improve the provincial government, Peter, in 1702, divided Russia into 8 guberniia, which was led by a gubanator, who had full power of his own guberniia and had to answer to Peter. Each guberniia was then broken down into districts called uzeda. By 1718, the number of guberniia increased to twelve and was broken down into forty uzedas. (Site 4, paragraph 3). When it came to the central government, he had a council, which was broken down in 40 departments. However, this system......

Peter the Great

...James Crarer 12EUC709 - The Russian Empire   The Russian Empire Essay “In what ways did Peter the Great’s reforms transform the concept of the Empire?” Peter the Great’s reforms are widely considered to be one of the most defining moments in Russian history. Beginning as an effort to modernize the country’s military, as the era progressed the reforms expanded, instigating economic development, governmental modernization, intellectual reorientation and social reconstruction.1 The injection of European practices into Russia arguably set the precedence for the onslaught of a top down modernization that has since been a trait of Russian state development, as well as illuminating the beginning of the transition into a form of Russian modernity. The geographical historian Dennis Shaw, reiterates this by suggesting Peter exposed Russia “to the ideas of the Renaissance and the Scientific Revolution. Building on the achievements of his father, Peter launched a thoroughgoing reform or modernization of his realm with the aim of transforming it into a major European state.”2 In order to comprehend this transformation of the Russian empire, an appreciation of meaning of the term ‘empire’ is required. Stephen Howe suggests that ‘an empire is a large, composite, multiethnic or multinational political unit, usually created by conquest, and divided between a dominant center and subordinate, sometimes far distant, peripheries.’3 While Howe’s definition provides a coherent basis from......

Peter the Great

...Peter the Great was one of the most famous czars in Russia, ruling from 1689 through 1725. Born in Moscow on June 9, 1672, Peter the Great was able to accomplish the incredible task of modernizing Russia. Due to his amazing talents, Russia was one of Europe’s leading countries during his reign. From wars to the multiple reforms he made, Peter the Great was able to successfully meet his primary goal: to expand and westernize Russia. Without him, Russia would have continued to be isolated and old-fashioned compared to the rest of Europe. Peter the Great’s interest in war was greatly beneficial to Russia. Through most of the wars that Peter was involved in, he was able to acquire and create features that helped Russia prosper. For example, from 1700 through 1721, Russia was involved in its first major European conflict, the Great Northern War. As a result, Peter the Great had to make multiple preparations. He needed troops for his army, this meant that all of the new soldiers had to be trained and armed. A fleet for the Baltic and Black Seas was necessary when looking for a victory. These ships needed Muscovites, who needed special training, to sail them. Once accomplished, Peter the Great was able to defeat Charles XII of Sweden in Ukraine. Through the Peace of Naystadt in 1721, he acquired the Baltic coastline. It was there that Peter planned to open warm water ports. These ports led to a growth in manufacturing through the companies created by the state (Jay 1). Then in......

Saint Peter

...Saint Peter’s BasilicaWhy is Saint Peter’s Basilica such a significant symbol within Catholicism?Designed principally by Donato Bramante, Michelangelo, Carlo Maderno and Gian Lorenzo Bernini, St. Peter's is the most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and remains one of the largest churches in the world. The extensive history of this pilgrimage dates back to the times of Jesus, and one of his most praised apostles, Saint Peter. After the crucifixion of Jesus in the second quarter of the 1st century AD, it is recorded in the Biblical book of the Acts of the Apostles that one of his twelve disciples, Simon, known as Saint Peter, took a leadership position among Jesus' followers and was of great importance in the founding of the Christian Church. | | | Saint Peter’sAbout UsWe are Saint Peter’sContact UsPhone: Email: Saint@Peters.com Web: Saintpeters/peters | | | Saint peter’s basilica | | | | | | | Saint peter’s basilica | A Pilgrimage of faith and discovery | | Why is mass so special?Attending Mass at Saint Peter's is something that certain Catholics take as a duty, whilst some Catholics take it as a privilege, and for others, the visit simply connects their spirituality with Jesus and enhances their faith as a whole.

Peter Singers Ethics

...Media resource Eidos84. (2010, Nov. 27). Peter Singer’s ethics [Video file]. Retrieved from http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVViICWs4dM Argument Outline: (CONTEXT): Instead of spending money on things to make life a tad bit easier for others, why do we feel that it is necessary to go above and beyond to spend money on things that are a necessity? Issue: Why do we go overboard on spending money on ourselves instead of giving and helping others with the extra funds we do have and not seeing anything morally wrong with that? Conclusion: We must practice thinking ethically and learn to take in or account the interest of others. Premises: Singer uses an example that someone may decide to buy a pair of shoes that costs over two thousand dollars. If they had to decide between rescuing a drowning child in a shallow pond, they would save the child and they won’t care about ruining a pair of two thousand. However morally, for the price of those shoes, a person could have helped several children in a poor country who may need medical attention to recover from simple illnesses. I believe that this is basis for a good argument because he is absolutely right when he refers to some of our terrible spending habits. Every year I donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital because I know that it truly helps children in need. Bran new clothes every month for me could be the cost of a child’s medication in another county. Singer goes on to say, “we make our lives most meaningful when we......

1 Peter

...First Peter is about how he wrote a letter to help the Christians that were getting persecuted in their land. He wanted to help them keep their faith strong and help them get through these struggles. In the next couple paragraphs I will explain the main points of 1 Peter. The first chapter of 1st Peter is about how God has given us his undeserved mercy. He sent his only son Jesus to die for mankind and forgive us of our sins. When God sent Jesus, Jesus made disciples that weren’t serving themselves but they were serving God because they knew what he had done and was going to do. First Peter: 1:6-7 says “In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” This we know, we should purify our ever actions and thoughts because God has been merciful to us. Christians should live as 1 Peter: 2:16-17 states it “Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves. Show proper respects to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, and honor the emperor.” That’s how we should live but we tend not to. We should act the way God has intended us to so that we can show unbelievers that we are good and possibly convert them. Don’t act and dress fancy to impress act......

Peter Pan Plot

...where George and Mary Darling's preparations to attend a party are disrupted by the antics of the boys, John and Michael, acting out a story about Peter Pan and the pirates, which was told to them by their older sister, Wendy. Their father, who is fed up with the stories that have made his children less practical, angrily declares that Wendy has gotten too old to continue staying in the nursery with them, and it's time for her to grow up and have a room of her own. That night, they are visited in the nursery by Peter Pan himself, who teaches them to fly with the help of his pixie friend, Tinker Bell, and takes them with him to the island of Never Land. A ship of pirates is anchored off Never Land, commanded by Captain Hook with his sidekick, Mr. Smee. Hook boldly plots to take revenge upon Peter Pan for cutting off his hand, but he trembles when the crocodile that ate it arrives; it now stalks him, hoping to taste more. Hook also forms a plan to find Peter's hideout using the knowledge of Tiger Lily. The crew's restlessness is interrupted by the arrival of Peter and the Darlings. The children easily evade them, and, despite a trick by jealous Tinker Bell to have Wendy killed, they meet up with the Lost Boys: six lads in animal-costume pajamas, who look to Peter as their leader. Tinker Bell's treachery is soon found out, and Peter banishes her "forever" (though she is eventually forgiven). John and Michael set off with the Lost Boys to find the island's Indians, who instead......
