January 29, 2012

Question

the impact of standards on the design process in relation to the profitability of the business

Hyden - UK (22392)

Answer

in the short-term, setting standards in the design process can be more costly, but in the long-run, it is absolutely necessary. Many companies start with ISO 9000 to document requirements, standards, and procedures. Then they move to TQM to look at ways to reduce costs and improve quality. The design team should be involved in both processes.

How does quality control affect business planning?

January 9, 2012

Question

how the concept of quality control affect the application of business planning and corporate expectations.

lucks - UK (22310)

Answer

Quality control and quality management (TQM) must be performed before products are sent to market. They, in turn, are dependent on clear specifications.

Documenting specifications and setting aside time for inspections and quality improvement must be included in business planning.

To some managers, it seems like an added expense. However, in the long-run, good quality products will reduce costs and increase profits.

Upper management should have Mission and Vision statements available to show the direction of the company. Typically, corporate expectations are for the company to grow and increase profits.

Business planning and corporate expectations

December 1, 2011

Question

how the concept of quality assurance affect the application of business planning and corporate expectations.

lucks - UK (22221)

Answer

Corporate expectations are usually to make more money and get more business. Quality Assurance (QA) is a way to make sure the outgoing product fulfills the specifications. Total Quality Management (TQM) not only looks at QA, but also considers reducing losses due to waste, and emphasizes satisfying the customer to get repeat business.

Efforts in TQM should be part of the business planning effort. The return-on-investment (ROI) from TQM will convince management that it is worth it.

Question

i am new business man started new organisation actualy i want to put 100% effort but i cant concentrate on my work please give me some hints to improve my concentration and 1 attitude

Raju - India (22090)

Answer

Being very interested in the business area should give you enthusiasm about getting things done. You need to enjoy the area of work, or else you are in the wrong area.

Think of your goals and long range plans for your career and business. Write down what you want to achieve in the next year and what reward that will give you.

Each night before going to bed, write down three things you want to accomplish the next day. This should help you to be anxious to get those things done when you get up in the morning.

Celebrate completion of tasks. Even telling yourself, "Good job!" motivates you to do more.

I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in your career and business.

The United States and many European countries have philosophies and beliefs that encourage production, as well as consumption. Emphasis on education encourages production. Unfortunately, excessive consumption by the people of a country can be wasteful and have a negative effect.

China's move from Communism has resulting in a great increase in production and consumption by the population or masses.
