Mr. Nhim Dalen Mr. Mao Piseth Mr. Saman Dimara Mr. Hak Sopagnha Ms Lim Lina Mr. Keo Sovan Chanborey Mr. Chhoeng Sangha Mr. Horn Pisith Mr. Hut Chenda Overview Problem Macro Micro Causes Proposed options/Alternatives Recommendation The Dim Lighting Company is a subsidiary of a major producer of electronic products. The Dim Lighting Company subsidiary produces electric lamps and employs about 2,000 workers. This subsidiary successfully for the past five years, however, last year the division failed to realized its operating targets, and profit margin dropped by 15 percent. Spinks has submitted a budget request for a major research project, the micro-miniaturization “The Lamp of the Future” of lighting source which could greatly reduce energy requirement. micro-miniaturization: production and application of very small semiconductor components and the circuits and equipment in which they are used MACRO The division failed to realize its operating targets, and profit margins dropped by 15%. MICRO Dr. Robert Spinks, director of R&D would resign, which would shatter the R&D department he had worked so hard to assemble. MACRO The DIM Lighting Company failed to move into new technologies, the firm would be competitively obsolete. MICRO The company not accept new creativity and innovation in Research and Development Structure Group Vice President General Manager JIM WEST Director R&D Dr. SPINKS Director Marketing P. NEWELL Director Mtg B. BOSWELL Director Accounting C. PRESTON 1 Conduct the research on microminiaturization 2 Purchase new machine 3 Both 1 and 2 1 ADVANTAGES: Low cost (250,000/year for two years) New technology found that greatly reduce energy requirements Competitive advantages Long-term benefits Avoid global redundancy DISADVANTAGES: Low productivities Uncertain results High risk Length of time 2 ADVANTAGES: Quick productivity Easy to manage Very direct payback DISADVANTAGES: High cost (1,000,000 USD) Reduce workforce and making global redundancy Maintaining cost Social and global environment affected (pollution) failed to move into new technologies, the firm would be competitively obsolete. 3 ADVANTAGES: Quick productivities / high productions Future expansion of market Address to the need of clients Both short and longer term perspective DISADVANTAGES: Very high cost XXX XXX Difficult to manage Maintaining cost Social and global environment affected 1 1 Optionthe research on microConduct miniaturization 2 Conduct the research on microPurchase new machine miniaturization 3 Both 1beand 2 Would strongly recommended!
