supply and demand

 
Required Report #1 Demand and Supply Analysis
Find a current semester’s newspaper/magazine article about a good or service (preferably one that you are familiar with). Use any current periodical and your understanding of supply and demand to apply the concepts to a broad area of real life issues.
Summarize the article using as many supply and demand terms as apply. (For example, has the number of buyers/sellers increased or decreased, how has the buyer/seller responded to price changes, are there surpluses or shortages in the market, are there substitute/complementary goods, does elasticity come into play?)
Illustrate what you stated above using a minimum of three different supply/demand graphs from the text. (Do not use other graphs such as pie charts, bar charts, and line graphs.) Watch the supply and demand analysis video series (Steps 1, 2, and 3) I provided for you in this module to help you create your graphs.
Demand Graph: Has a movement along the demand curve or a shifting of the demand curve occurred? Explain.
Supply Graph: Has a movement along the supply curve or a shifting of the supply curve occurred? Explain.
Equilibrium Graph: Combine the changes stated for demand and supply and illustrate the impact on the equilibrium price and quantity. Has a surplus or a shortage been created? Explain.
Your paper must be 3-4 typed pages in length including your graphs. You must include a copy of the article you used in your research. Please attach your article to this paper,

1-1 Discussion: Change in Supply or Demand

 
1-1 Discussion: Change in Supply or Demand
Find an article about a current event that discusses a change in the supply or demand of a product. For example, has there been a weather event that has affected certain food crops or the availability of energy? Has a new consumer product been introduced? Or has a government regulation affected the production of a product? Provide a brief description of the article’s content and explain how economics can be used to analyze the situation and predict changes in equilibrium prices and quantities. Will the change likely persist over time, or is it temporary?

In responding to your classmates’ posts, discuss how consumers or business managers use the information in the recent change in supply and demand to make decisions for their products and services.

Your task in this assignment is to investigate the logistics of the flow of products or materials in an organisation and to identify potential areas for improvement.

Identify a local organisation involved with the supply, distribution, or sale of physical products. This may be the organisation where you work with or one in your local region with which you are familiar. The organisation could be a retail store, a wholesaler, a manufacturer, a transport or shipping company, or a warehouse company. You will be focusing on the way in which stocks of finished goods or raw material flows are organized, managed, stored, transported and controlled. Control is concerned with quantities, availability, quality and cost.

Write a report which covers the following:
◾Brief description of the organisation and its logistics system. Your description should enable a reader to understand the organisation and the logistics system involved in its operation.
◾Description of at least three of the following areas of logistics in the organisation and a brief analysis of the way in which they impact on the effectiveness of the integrated logistics system in the company:
– Customer relationship management (customer accommodation/customer service)
– Procurement
– Transportation
– Warehousing
– Packaging and handling
– Logistics network integration
– Logistics performance

◾Assume you are the manager of the company you are investigating. Provide your own opinion on how the company’s logistics should be managed. Identify any critical issues and problems and make recommendations about any changes you think are necessary to improve the flow and control of goods and materials through the organisation.
The organisation is a small Western Australian winery that distributes wine in Australia (90%) and overseas (10%)

PESTEL AND VALUE CHAIN ANALYSIS

 
Here is the work attached in the word file that was made by the previous writer. There are several problems with that report on Burberry brand, they are:
1. The PESTEL Analysis on Burberry was global and it needs to be sticked to United Kingdom only and be more specific (real examples etc).
2. Value Chain analysis was poor because it should have been more specific and the structure was absolutely wrong. The structure should be in the same order as in the picture I’m attaching to you as well with the specific figures, names, processes related to the Burberry brand (for example: specify who are the suppliers of the materials if you will find it or anything like that).
3.Add 2-3 recommendations in total (for example: two for PESTEL findings and one for the value chain analysis findings, or other way around).

You can use as much information from the previous work as you want if you will meet my requirements, however of course there will be many findings needed made by you as well from the other sources. The given references can be used as well, however I would like to ask you to use your ones as well (any number of your references but not more that 12 + the references that are included already). The references you would like to use will need to be cited exactly the same way as the given ones. If it is online, then provide the link where I can find the source in internet.
