A Case Study on Tapsilog

Tapsilog is a popular Filipino dish commonly served for breakfast. The term is coined from combining the Filipino words tapa, sinangag, and itlog which are the main components of the dish. We chose to show how tapsilog can be geographical because we want to emphasize that anything can be geographical, and tapsilog, a common Filipino dish is usually not the kind of product that people would associate with geography. As mentioned, tapsilog is made up of tapa (dried meat), sinangag (fried rice) and itlog (egg), but it doesn’t stop there. Each ingredient is also made up of even more ingredients that we have traced to have originated from and traveled through different places in and out of the country before it reaches our plates. This further supports the idea that tapsilog, like every product, is geographical. Click here to read more…

Distributing to its chain store customers, consumer electronics company Altec Lansing was managing its truckload (TL) shipments with a multitude of carriers in a spot-market pricing environment. This method of booking freight limited Altec Lansing’s ability to balance costs and service. Heavy end-of-the-month or seasonal demand in the retail market worsened the situation by increasing truckload requirements. Click here to read more…

A Case Study on Professional Practice Capital

Professional Practice Capital wanted to change its name to PPC LOAN after many years of being known as “PPC” to its customers. As one of the country’s few commercial loan originators focused on Allstate insurance agents, veterinarians and dentists, the company had a unique story to share. PPC LOAN also had a major announcement to make regarding its launch of the insurance industry’s first Allstate Agency Value Index. The index was created as a value-added service for Allstate agents to gauge what other agencies are selling for. As if a rebrand and new product launch weren’t enough to conquer, the economy moved into a full-blown recession, leaving PPC LOAN’s potential audience wary of bank financing organizations.

A Case Study on Maximum Power Point Tracking

Maximum Power Point Tracking, frequently referred to as MPPT, is an electronic system that operates the Photovoltaic (PV) modules in a manner that allows the modules to produce all the power they are capable of. MPPT is not a mechanical tracking system that “physically moves” the modules to make them point more directly at the sun. MPPT is a fully electronic system that varies the electrical operating point of the modules so that the modules are able to deliver maximum available power. Additional power harvested from the modules is then made available as increased battery charge current. MPPT can be used in conjunction with a mechanical tracking system, but the two systems are completely different. To understand how MPPT works, let’s first consider the operation of a conventional (nonMPPT) charge controller. Click here to read more…

A Case Study on Florida Power & Light: Dividend Policy

Electric Utility Industry: The electric utility industry is formed by three segments: generation, transmission and distribution. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is the regulating authority for the utilities with interstate systems or substantial investments in assets not related to the core operation of the utility. In order to avoid SEC supervision, the industry had evolved into a large number of intrastate, and relatively undiversified, utility companies operating under extensive regulation.

Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA) encourages the creation of plants using renewable/non-traditional energy sources and gives Federal Energy Regulatory Commission the regulatory power. These plants were classified as “qualifying facilities” and local utilities were required to buy all of the electricity produced by these qualifying facilities. Once deregulation is introduced, FPL Group will not be very affected by increased competition in the generation segment because of the previous investments in these qualifying facilities.

A Case Study on Excelon Corporation Risk Analysis

Major Risks: The three major risk factors that Exelon must currently navigate include market fluctuations, correctly estimating competitive transitions charges, and conforming to environmental regulations imposed by the government.

Case Study on Albertsons Stores

A company you’ve probably never heard of is rounding up money to take control of all the Albertsons supermarkets in Idaho and elsewhere that Supervalu bought six years ago. One analyst says that could put some Albertsons employees’ jobs at risk. The company is Cerberus Capital Management, a New York private equity firm. According to The Wall Street Journal and Debtwire, a daily trade newspaper, Cerberus is preparing to borrow $4 billion to $5 billion to acquire Supervalu, the struggling Minnesota company that bought most of Albertsons Inc. in 2006, ending Albertsons as an independent, Boise-based company.
