Case study -1 (30 marks)

 

  1. 1. What is the fundamental management problem.

 

Answer:The fundamental problem in management is that the world is uncertain, and people hate dealing with uncertainty.The fundamental problem is that programming languages package management is decentralized.

 

This decentralization starts with the central premise of a package manager: that is, to install software and libraries that would otherwise not be locally available. Even with an idealized, centralized distribution curating the packages,

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. List out alternative courses of action

 

Answer:Given the possible courses of action, we now need to decide which will be carried forward for action. Creativity is often thought of as the divergent activity of coming up with good ideas, but equally important is converging back in as we select the ideas that will be used.

 

 

Criteria: Selection is done through the application of some form of criteria, which may be consciously or subconsciously selected. These are reasons for or against taking the action, which will allow us to weigh up the pros and cons or

Answer: KanikshaIspat is an established medium size company manufacturing steel strips. The company has employed over 800 workers. The products of the company have established a good reputation and company was doing very well for last 15 years.

 

The market is slowly changing its nature. The competition is growing and therecessionary trends are now clearly visible. The company is not visualizing abright, growing market and most of the products, as per present marketingconditions are overpriced.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Case study -2 (25 marks)

 

 

  1. 1. Analyze the case

 

Answer: A Food specialty is presently headed by Nandan Vinayak. The company is doing business very well and its profits are on continuous rise. The company has maintained a steady profitability, sales and performance track record. The employees are mostly less paid and less educated. Most of them are semiskilled and coming from nearby rural areas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. Was the incentive scheme wrong in any way?

 

Answer: We welcome Doshi’s well-balanced analysis of the priority review voucher (PRV), prompted by the licensure of miltefosine in the USA. It raises interesting general issues about incentivising innovation for products to address diseases that would otherwise be neglected due to market failure. This includes diseases which are rare in high-income countries, yet highly prevalent in low- and middle-income countries, and those that affect fractions of societies who cannot afford to pay the prices that would make these drugs attractive for industry.

 

The problem is hugely complex and there is no obvio

 

 

 

 

 

Case study -3 (25 marks)

 

 

  1. 1. Analyze the incidence

 

Answer: Amit, a Chief Manager of Spark- leading departmental stores at Nagpur, has attended a seminar on Japanese Management System. He was highly impressed by the innovative and democratic approach of the system. He decided to go for Japanese System by introducing initially a few measures in the stores.

 

Mr. Rajesh is his close rival, who feels that he has the right

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. Identify the issues, problems involved in this scheme

 

Answer: The culture of Japanese management that is often portrayed in Western media is generally limited to Japan’s large corporations. These flagships of the Japanese economy provide their workers with excellent salaries, secure employment, and working conditions. These companies and their employees are the business elite of Japan. Though not as much for the new generation, a career with such a company is the dream of many young people in Japan, but only a select few attain these jobs. Qualification for corporate employment is limited to the few who graduate from the top thirty colleges and universities in Japan.

 

 

 

 

  1. 3. List out the facts

 

Answer: Japanese management emphasises the need for information flow from the bottom of the company to the top. This results in senior management having a largely supervisory rather than ‘hands-on’ approach. As a result, it has been noted that policy is often originated at the middle-levels of a company before being passed upwards for ratification. The strength of this approach is obviously that those tasked with the implementation of decisions have been actively involved in the shaping of policy.  The higher a Japanese manager rises within an organisation, the more important it is that he appears unassuming and

 

 

 

 

  1. 4. List the critical problems demanding immediate attention

 

Answer: Japan began focusing on serious quality efforts. Japanese teams went abroad to visit foreign countries to learn how other countries managed quality, and they invited foreign experts to lecture in Japan on quality management. Two of these foreign experts were Americans W. Edward Deming and Joseph Juran. They each had a profound influence on Japanese quality processes, encouraging quality and design, built in, and zero defect programs. It took twenty years of concerted effort to revamp Japan’s industrial system. The strategies used involved high-level managers as leaders, all levels and functions were trained

 

 

 

 

  1. 5. Was Mr. Amit right in scrapping the scheme?

 

Answer: Japanese management should know this better because of their preserved institutional memory of the lessons learnt from the evolution of POTS, PANS and SANs. Server, network, storage, telecommunications and software expertise is preserved in the Japanese institutions.  On the other hand, in the US, the dismantling of large R&D labs such as the Bell Labs, reduced government R&D, the demise of companies like US WEST and SUN, and the emphasis on startups to create innovation (with the disadvantage of starting from

  1. 3. Observe any newspaper advertisement of any consumer durable company. What is the target audience and what are benefits of choosing newspaper for advertisement.

In other words, by simply placing the ad you’ve zeroed in on a market niche that is probably already interested in the type of product or service you’re offering.

 

If you’re selling a hair product, an ad placed in a fashion or hairstyling magazine will attract potential consumers who are looking for just this type of product.

  1. 1. a. List the factors responsible for the increasing importance of BI in organisations.

 

 

 

Answer:  a.Factors responsible for the increasing importance of BI in organisations

 

  1. Training: It’s hard not to think “duh” when IDC says training is important to promoting pervasive business analytics. But training goes far beyond teaching users how to access data with a dashboard. IDC stresses that companies need to make sure people know how to use the data to truly improve decision-making.

 

  1. Design Quality: A BI solution must be designed to address not only the needs of various end-user groups but also those of the IT group that support ongoing requirements. A well-designed solution is easier to update with new data sources, new domains, new reports, new metrics, and new data hierarchies.

 

 

 

 

 

b.obstacles in Implementing BI in Organisations

 

Answer : Driving User Adoption: Many organizations operate under the impression that if you build it, they will come. This is a fallacy. Dashboard adoption takes real work as people won’t want to change the way they do things unless their current methods are tedious, time-consuming, or just don’t work. Even when inefficiencies are recognized, promoting change can be difficult, especially when individuals are averse to risk.

 

  1. 2. a. Discuss the contribution of business analytics in strategy management

 

 

 

Answer:a. Business analytics in strategy management:Companies have to adapt to customers’ new preferences or, better still, anticipate them.

Audience analyses provide clues on future market trends, opportunities to be taken and how customer expectations develop. Listening to what is happening out there on all contact points, which make up online applications, favours the emergence of new development ideas, strengthens activities and is a new opportunity to all

  1. 1. Explain the working of Carrier Sense Multiple Access with Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) Protocol.

 

Answer:Carrier Sense Multiple Access With Collision Detection (CSMA/CD) is a media access control method used most notably in local area networking using early Ethernet technology. It uses a carrier sensing scheme in which a transmitting data station detects other signals while transmitting a frame, and stops transmitting that frame, transmits a jam signal, and then waits for a random time interval before trying to resend the frame.

 

CSMA/CD is a modification of pure carrier

  1. 1. The data is stored in the form of tables which can be retrieved efficiently by any program as per the request. Since the database users are vast in number, the database provides authentication. Explain the different types of database users.

 

Answer:There are four different types of database system users, differentiated by the way that they expect to interact with the system. A primary goal of a database system is to provide an environment for retrieving information from and storing new information into the database.

 

  • Application programmers: They are computer professionals who interact with the system through DML calls, which are embedded in a program written in a host language (for example COBOL, C). Since the DML syntax is different from the host language syntax, DML calls are usually prefaced by a special

 

  1. 2. Computer storage is divided into primary memory and secondary memory. Discuss with an example, the different types of primary memory and secondary memory.

 

Answer:Primary Memory is a part of CPU (Central Processing Unit) whereas the secondary is external to the CPU. The Secondary Memory stores the data to keep it even when the electricity to the PC (Personal Computer) is cut off whereas the Primary Memory losses its contents immediately.

Types of primary memory

 

(a) Analog Memory: This type of Memory was used in the computers built during 1960’s. The basic storage device in this type of memory consists of a small ring shaped piece of magnetic material called a magnetic core. Each magnetic core in a

 

 

 

 

 

  1. 3. Consider any one example of a relational database and show how the different operations of relational algebra can be performed on the table showing the output.

 

Answer:A query language is a language in which user requests information from the database. it can be categorized as either procedural or nonprocedural. In a procedural language the user instructs the system to do a sequence of operations on database to compute the desired result. In nonprocedural language the user describes the desired information without giving a specific procedure for obtaining that information.

 

The relational algebra is a procedural query language. It consists of a set of operations that take one or two relations as input and produces a new relation as output.

 

Fundamental Operations

 

 

 

  1. 4. Describe the different normal forms with one example throughout.

 

Answer:First normal form (1NF or Minimal Form) is a normal form used in database normalization. A relational database table that adheres to 1NF is one that meets a certain minimum set of criteria. These criteria are basically concerned with ensuring that the table is a faithful representation of a relation and that it is free of repeating groups. The concept of a “repeating group” is, however, understood in different ways by different theorists. As a consequence, there is no universal agreement as to which features would disqualify a table from being in 1NF.

  1. Transaction Commit:Marks the end of a successful implicit or explicit transaction. If TRANCOUNT is 1, COMMIT TRANSACTION makes all data modifications performed since the start of the transaction a permanent

 

 

  1. Atomicity:In database systems, atomicity (or atomicness; from Greek a-tomos, undividable) is one of the ACID transaction properties. In an atomic transaction, a series of database operations either all occur, or nothing occurs. The series of operations cannot be divided apart and executed partially from

 

 

  1. Deferred update:With deferred update, the macro could run an order of magnitude faster. The more insidious of the two ways higher-level commands come about is through the efforts of a good designer. The primitive operations of the editor are treated as building blocks for more complex editor operations. This produces the usual increase in productivity during editor development — a good thing.

Explaining with an example

 

Answer:When you use an ODBMS, the way you use your data is the way you store it. The first benefit can be found in development. When you use an ODBMS, you will write less code than if you were writing to an RDBMS. The reason for the smaller amount of code is simple — when you are using Java or C++ — you won’t
