Case study on making Clothing on computer (computer aided design).

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Page 410 Case Study B2 1. Sunil has derived many benefits from the use of I.T in establishing his business. He was able to design the clothing on computer (computer aided design) and see what the clothes would look like on his family and friends without having to spend money actually making the clothes for his family and friends to try on which would have been wasted if the clothes didn't look good on. The factory in Calcutta, India can download the computer files with the designs on in a matter of seconds. Whereas without the use of I.T the designs would have to be sent by post which could take days or weeks to get there. If Sunil wanted to make an alteration or remove one of the designs he would be able to do it before work was started most probably because of the speed of Internet connections/email; yet if it had to be done by post then money would be lost because production would have probably started due to the length of time taken for the information to get there or due to it being lost in the post. Sunil is keeping costs down by using cheap labour in India and cutting them further by communicating to them via computer where images can also be seen instead of just a voice or writing instead of expensive call rates etc. ...read more.

Plus competitors would copy any new products/markets developed with the extra money more or less straight away and you have spent the money on research etc. 2b. It will effect the role of banks in business too because people like Sunil starting their own business will not be needing to go to banks for large long-term loans to buy buildings and machinery and only need smaller loans if necessary. This will effect the banks because their profit is the interest paid back in the loans they give therefore banks will start to become more competitive offering lower interest rates sending that market into interest rates wars. Also the use of applications of I.T has already caused rapid changes in banks. Jobs in banking have been transformed by automatic 'hole in the wall' cash dispensers; these have wiped out thousands of jobs for bank clerks and have led to the closure of hundreds of bank branches. 3. With Sunil's business almost conforming to Charles Handy's description of ' the empty raincoat' with an outer coat but little inside. Sunil's business is a company, which has an outer coat but nothing visible inside, many of the activities are contracted out, and most of the workforce is at home, working for the company. ...read more.

Conclusion

Once a simple objective like that has been decided a business if it is determined to reach the target set will then develop a strategy to make it happen. A successful business will set itself many smaller targets to reach so that it eventually reaches that first main objective, otherwise a business will not have a key reason to keep profits up etc and employees will not have any motivation to reach any objectives set, if the objective was for Sunil to make his first half million by the age of 25 he could motivate employees by telling them how they will benefit if this happens and continually showing them proof so they no they are getting closer to reaching their objective. Aims and objectives give a business itself motivation and an idea of where it is heading once each objective is achieved then another can be set or started to be achieved, no doubt once Sunil has made his first half million he will aim to make his first million by another age, when he does make his forst million the business will clearly be expanding further so that once costs are recovered Sunil will be on his way to making one million plus. ...read more.
