Part 3: Immediate Issue
Hp’s distribution centers have been filled with pallets of the DeskJet printer. However the Europe is still claiming the inventory levels there needed to be raised.
The Vancouver top management insists that HP is just going to meet customer needs with fewer inventories. Our immediate issue:
1. Too much inventory are in the DeskJet supply chain
2. European and Asian DCs cannot meet delivery requirement
3. Vancouver Division couldn't build the right products in the right quantities.

Part 4: Systemic Issues
1.DCs operate system: Timing: Long Term
Nature: Strategic
In order to match Vancouver’s pull production system, DCs operate system need to be updated to a pull system as well. Now DCs performance measures are LIFR (Line Item Fill Rate) and OFR (Order Fill Rate). And DCs system did not support manufacturing (assembly of components into a final product). There is no MRP(Material Resource Planning) nor BOM (Bill of Materials) explosion system.
2. DCs inventory imbalance: Timing: Short Term and long Term
Nature: Strategic
Inventory imbalance means HP DCs cannot meet the customer requirements. Another phenomenon of inventory imbalance is…...

Late Adulthood and the End of Life

...Late Adulthood and the End of Life Marcia Fortson PSY 375 May 29, 2012 Judith Sugg, Ph.D. Late Adulthood and the End of Life Senescence is part of the aging process starting from adolescence. People go through various aging periods in life that will eventually lead to the late adulthood stage or old age. This is a natural stage where a person will reminisce and reflect on the various struggles they went through and accomplishments they made. The late adulthood stage is a period where reflection on the choices that were made within one’s life while growing up, whether they were good or bad, happy or sad are remembered. The different views and issues that a person will experience within the late adulthood stage will be discussed below. How Can Individuals Promote Health and Wellness into Late Adulthood and Mitigate the Negative Effects of Aging? To promote health and wellness within the late adulthood stage a person needs to get the proper rest because sleep is important for the brain and body to function properly. A senior will us selective optimization with compensation when and if they are capable of driving themselves places.

Christianity in Late Antiquity

...Christianity in Late Antiquity The period of Late Antiquity was roughly between 300 and 600 A.D. It was a period of change for the European world, change in politics, religion, economics, and much more. New ideas and ways were emerging while many of the old were starting to disappear. One of the most important and drastic changes during this time was the change in Christianity. Christianity was present before this period, but during Late Antiquity was when the Christian Church went from a persecuted religion to a desired and dominate faith. In this paper I will argue through the writings of Saint Augustine’s Confessions good Christians in Late Antiquity must be obedient and have a good sense of acceptance. Christianity really started to spread and expand in the third century. When the Roman Empire was declining in the third century Christianity was able to come in and take a place that was felt to be empty by the people. The economy was deteriorating with the decline in agriculture and food, leaving Christian Church to provide care for the poor, making Christianity appealing to the normal person. During the time of catastrophe such as the plague the Church was there to take care of the people; they managed burials for the dead, and during famine they organized food-supplies for the poor. The Church was the only form of a unified organization during times of upheaval making it alluring to people who felt they had been abandoned by the Roman Empire; the Church also gave...

Late Adulthood

...Late Adulthood Late adulthood is an age that I have not yet reached so in writing this paper I was a bit intimidated because I am not all that knowledgeable on this age group. I do, however, have a lot of respect for this age group because they have been through so much already in their lives and because of this I think that much can be learned from them. These are people such as my grandparents, whom I look up to vastly. Their wisdom is vast and I have learned many things from them. For this interview, I spoke with my Grandmother, Karen. She is 71 years of age. Her health is very good; in fact I forget that she is even 71 years. I would guess her to be early sixty’s. She is very active and has no trouble doing daily activities. During the summer she has a large garden she takes care of herself and she also mows her lawn on her own. All of her senses are still in great condition. She says she does not notice any difference in hearing, smell, or taste. She does wear glasses, but has her entire life. The decline in vision and hearing is greatest in individuals aged 75 years and older (Santrock 343). So, with her exceptional health, she may be good for a while. Her circulatory seems to be in good condition. She has good blood pressure and is at a healthy weight. She smoked for a large portion of her life, but she quit about ten years ago. Her lungs seem to still be pretty strong due to her exercise and high activity. She has no problems with arthritis......

Late Adulthood Development

...LATE ADULTHOOD DEVELOPMENT Late adulthood is generally considered to begin at about age 65. Erik Erikson suggests that at this time it is important to find meaning and satisfaction in life rather than to become bitter and disillusioned, that is, to resolve the conflict of integrity vs. despair. It has been estimated that by the year 2030, Americans over 65 will make up 20% of the population. The disengagement theory states that as people age, their withdrawal from society is normal and desirable as it relieves them of responsibilities and roles that have become difficult. I have choses my friend’s grandmother Jean Traxler. She was born and brought up in Midwest. She is seventy-six years of age and she is in moderately in good physical and emotional condition. Jean is still very independent; she lives by herself and refuses to move into a senior living facility. She was married twice and has four children. Jean’s first husband dies in a car crash and her second husband died due to old age. Jean’s second husband passed away six years ago and she had been single ever since. Jean has 4 children, who range ages from 44 to 55 years of age. She has three female and one male child. Also, Jean has 15 grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Jean is actively involved in all her grandchildren’s upbringing and life. Based on my observations of Jean, I think she identifies with all five dimensions of grand parenting. Over the course of last ten years Jean has grown......

Late Adulthood

...Late Adulthood and Death Vee Dubb PSY/280 September 8, 2012 Jones Adam Late Adulthood and Death Most people agreed upon that “whatever has a beginning must come to a halt or reaches climax eventually”. The race of one’s life begins at conception in the womb and ends with death. This stage of life is a period of reminiscing, socializing with friends, family especially grandchildren, and maintain a sustainable health as one journey’s to dying. Meanwhile, human growth and development study made us understand that the race of one’s life is in stages from the point of conception to an infant, to a childhood stage, to an adolescent stage, to an adulthood stage, to an elderly, and finally to end of life and the study as well made us understand the extensive changes throughout lifespan; Consequently, it is known the reason why most toddlers says “No”, and why many adolescent pay attention to their body without criticizing any stage of these lifespan stages. The same concept is applicable to elders or late adulthood people and having a discriminatory ideology towards a person because of his/her age or people of late adulthood stage would be considered uncivilized or uneducated act or a novice to the study of human growth and development. Late adulthood can be a challenge because of the signs of aging from middle adult continues and increased as one aged. Late adulthood individual may face with significant changes including brittle bones, hearing impaired, visual......

China is a tough market and the competitors may have gotten their first by the biggest mistake would be choosing not to invest in China by Edward Tse. Summary of article While many other countries have slipped into an economic coma, China is humming alone with Goldman Sachs Projecting that the economy will grow by more than 11% in 2010. On the other hand, these are not happy times for many foreign investors. in the other article, James McGregor, a consultant and former Chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in China, voiced some of the problems vexing foreign investors: competition from inexpensive knockoffs: rivalry from state –owned enterprise that enjoy special advantages and seemingly duplicate government policies such as the selective enforcement of World Trade Organization norms. In the sector that any company may enter, China is awash with competitors, both local and foreign. Lock at the figure: the number of private companies in China shot up from 140,000 in 1992 to 6.6 million by end of 2008 even the as the number of foreign corporate grew to 435,000. Of the Fortune 500 companies, about 480 are already in China. This makes for a marketplace in which Chinese and foreign companies battle for survival. Although it may be scary to consider......

Late Adulthood and Death Paper

...Running Head: LATE ADULTHOOD & DEATH Late Adulthood and Death Paper Late Adulthood and Death The final years of an individual's lifespan mark the time for reflection of one's life while also spending time with family, including grandchildren, and maintaining physical and mental health throughout the entire stage of late adulthood. Quality of life in late adulthood is determined by genetics, the modification of destructive lifestyles and behaviors, and selecting healthier options not only throughout the earlier stages of development but especially in this stage for improvements to health and having an overall sense of well-being (Berger, 2008). Remaining socially active and independent for as long as possible instead of succumbing to isolating is key during this stage of adulthood (Berger, 2008). The more adults in this stage of aging that live socially active, healthy, and physically active lives while maintaining important family roles the more individuals will be refraining from the negative and stereotypical thoughts of ageism which will assist in their premature decline. High quality medical care assisted by technology can provide aging adults comfort knowing they are helping to protect and safeguard younger generations as science learns from the older generations. Ageism and Stereotypes In late adulthood, there are many stereotypes and unfavorable understandings of older adults (Emotional and Social Development in Late Adulthood, n.d.).......

Late Adulthood

...Late adulthood (old age) is generally considered to begin at about age 65. Erik Erikson suggests that at this time it is important to find meaning and satisfaction in life rather than to become bitter and disillusioned, that is, to resolve the conflict of integrity vs despair . It has been estimated that by the year 2030, Americans over 65 will make up 20% of the population. Despite the problems associated with longevity, studies of people in their 70s have shown that growing old is not necessarily synonymous with substantial mental or physical deterioration. Many older people are happy and engaged in a variety of activities. Generology, an interdisciplinary field that studies the process of aging and the aging population, involves psychology, biology, sociology, and other fields. People typically reach the peak of their physical strength and endurance during their twenties and then gradually decline. In later adulthood, a variety of physiological changes may occur, including some degree of atrophy of the brain and a decrease in the rate of neural processes. The respiratory and circulatory systems are less efficient, and changes in the gastrointestinal tract may lead to increased constipation. Bone mass diminishes, especially among women, leading to bone density disorders such as osteoporosis. Muscles become weaker unless exercise programs are followed. The skin dries and becomes less flexible. Hair loss occurs in both sexes. There is also decreased sensitivity in all......

The Late Age of Print

...The Late Age of Print Since the release of the first eBook in March of 2000, the status of the printed book in the digital age has come into question. Though it is hard to say what the definitive fate of printed books in the digital age will be, it is safe to say that we will not see the extinction of physical books in our lifetime. There are many qualities to the printed book that simply cannot be recreated digitally, and while the status of the printed books has changed that does not mean it is on its way out. The eBook is undoubtedly more convenient and the ability to carry a library in your pocket is astonishing, but that availability is not significant enough to convince long time bibliophiles to compromise their reading experience as they have come to know and love. Printed books have an experience, an impression, which a digital file simply cannot reproduce. Words printed on a page are a thing; they occupy a space in the book, they are verifiably there. The configuration of the eBook simply temporarily occupies a space on a screen, and once digitized back into storage it can no longer be said to exist in the same way. (Striphas 24) Words printed in a book have an inherent immortal nature. Regardless of the screen size, number of pixels, or memory capacity, there is no e-reader that could ever evoke such a feeling of permanency. Our current society is one that quite literally has a need for both immediate satisfaction and convenience. At some point, there seems to...
