Make plots for comparing the Crank-Nicolson scheme with the Forward and Backward Euler schemes in the same test problem as in Exercise 8.12.

1.It is recommended to do Exercise 8.12 prior to the present one. Here we look at the same population growth model N (t) = rN(t), N(0) = N0. The time derivative N (t) can be approximated by various types of finite differences. Exercise 8.12 considers a backward difference (Fig. 8.22), while Sect. 8.2.2 explained the forward difference (Fig. 8.4). A centered difference is more accurate than a backward or forward difference: N (tn + 1 2 Δt) ≈ N(tn + Δt) − N(tn) Δt = Nn+1 − Nn Δt . This type of difference, applied at the point t n+1 2 = tn + 1 2Δt, is illustrated geometrically in Fig. 8.23.

a) Insert the finite difference approximation in the ODE N = rN and solve for the….

Market research –the competition, price points, voids in the marketplace, need for your product line. 

The parent Company is “Ivanna Valencia” and has a void in athleisure. The target market is demanding more stay at home clothes with a modern feel

Students are to bring a new product or product line to market. It should be a “new division” of an existing Company. Consider that you are working for a retailer, designer or brand. You realize a “void” in the marketplace. An example might be: You are working for the retailer Zara. There is no maternity line. You feel that a hip, stylish maternity line is a void in the marketplace. Trend right. Priced right. Perfect for stylish Moms-to-be. What would this line look like? Made of? Priced? Manufactured?  The new product line should be marketable, saleable & make sense for the “parent”….

What is the difference between yield management and revenue management for service-based organizations?

Define inventory and discuss why inventories are maintained. What are the four Inventory Models?

Inventory is an asset that has been held for sale or any other future use. Inventories are the physical goods that are used in operations and include supplies, tools, parts, raw materials, and other physical materials used within an organization. Many different categories are maintained within the value chain. Managing inventory is beneficial since it allows the organization to meet its customers’ demands without having to wait for the production cycle to end. By managing inventory, orders are filled timely and more efficiently, enabling an organization to increase its profitability by meeting the needs of the customers (Collier & Evans, 2017).

Below is a description of the four inventory models:

Manufacturing Requirements

Running Head: Milestone Two 3

Milestone Two:

Manufacturing Requirements

The production process of Pop In bottle liner will require a manufacturing requirement that is suitable to meet the safety standard for the demands of the customer and that would adapt the same production in the capacity of the company. The main reason is to consider the new product while continuously doing the same production phases but it will require another adaptation. The new product will be produced through the step by step operations that the other common company products are currently processing. The elastic material will introduce a thicker layer in the current production process alongside existing products that are being manufactured to be able not to delay the client’s orders of the existing product. The tools for….
