Case Study of Solar PV

Mr Davies was looking for a shrewd investment and a means of minimising his exposure to rising electricity prices. Looking for a trouble free solution with good warranties and quality installation isn’t as simple to find as it sounds. Mr Davies choose to use the Bolton branch of Intelligent Energy Solutions due to the depth of experience and quality of components used. The installation was completed in April of this year and was completed in time for Mr Davies to benefit from the high rate feed in tariff of 21p/kWh. A similar return on investment should be achievable for new installations throughout 2012…

Case Study on Integrated Resource Planning

Case Study Contents


Introduction: In 2008, the Institute for Sustainable Futures at the University of Technology, Sydney, was commissioned by the National Water Commission to undertake the Integrated Resource Planning for Urban Water Project. This case study report is one of the components of that project. The project has developed tools and materials that are designed to assist water service providers with their longer term water planning. This report documents a case study undertaken to demonstrate the analytical steps of urban water IRP, with reference to the city of Wagga Wagga…

Approach: The project methodology is underpinned by IRP, a comprehensive decision-making process directing the effective provision of infrastructure services to cities. The fundamental insight of the process is that cities demand services rather than resources and that options to augment system capacity (for example, through new sources) should therefore be compared alongside options to control demand (for example, through efficient appliances) on an equivalent basis…

Case Study on Strategic Human Resource Management

Wright et al. (1992) had stated that HRM field has integrated into the strategic management process resulting new discipline referred to as SHRM. Since SHRM became popular in the 1980s with the development of the Harvard Business School’s two models integrating strategy and HRM (Jain, 2004) the key differences between traditional conceptions of HRM and SHRM are the extent to which HRM is integrated with the strategic decision making processes and SHRM focuses on organizational performance rather than individual performance (Becker et al., 2006; Karami, 2004). Strategic integration has become an increasingly relevant research topic (Othmman, 1998).

Case Study for Total Cost of Ownership

It is extremely rare to be able to compare total cost of ownership (TCO) of two competing applications within the same company. Nucleus found that, in the case of this publicly traded biotechnology firm, both Oracle JD Edwards and SAP were chosen and championed – and a merger brought them together. In this dual ERP environment, SAP is more than four times more costly than JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

The Situation: When the two firms merged in 2008, each company already had existing, wellentrenched, fully operational ERP systems: One had been using Oracle JD Edwards for a number of years and had already upgraded from JD Edwards World to EnterpriseOne; the other had used SAP since 1997 and had already undertaken a hardware refresh and a significant upgrade. The company considered a migration strategy for one of the applications but decided a consolidation would be too expensive and disruptive. Instead, the company chose to use Oracle Fusion AIA to integrate the two applications as needed…
