ARCHIVES: Quarter 4 Year 2018

 

ADMIN NOTES:

1. To request a Special Report, please contact your simulation administrator, Kristi. The Special Report contains additional reporting data on all firms within a given market group (ROI, ROE, Current Ratio, Production Efficiency Factor, Average Compensation, and more). The report is updated each quarter with new data and we do not archive old reports, so please request the special report for a given quarter before the following quarter's deadline, or the report may not be available. There is a $2000 simulation dollar fee for each report, billed as a miscellaneous expense in the following quarter. The special report is the only additional report available outside of the simulation menus.

 


 

ECONOMIC NEWS:

NAFTA has numerous negotiations taking place between management and labor.  Major strikes in airlines and trucking have been avoided with settlements reached in multiyear contracts.  Given the rate of inflation, most agree some upward salary adjustment is needed.

 

The EU is amazingly quiet in terms of labor unrest.  Some economic writers feel the euphoria about economic growth and employment far overshadows the impact of inflation … so far. 

 

Money policy marches forward with another increase in the T-bill rate. 

 


INDUSTRY:

Raw material prices, as previously reported, will increase in Q4.  The exact amount is now known: Type 1 by $.98 and Type 2 by $.35.

 

Demand for scents exploded in Q3 (seasonally speaking) as many stores sought to increase inventories for the expected burst of demand in Q4 holidays.  Q3 demand shot up 15% to 30% over Q3 of 2017.  Firms are cautioned not to use Q3 data for forecasting purposes as the increase in demand was a one time only supply chain adjustment.

Peacock is now closed to all simulation teams. If your firm needs to purchase finished goods, please visit the chat room/message board forum to find other simulation teams that can supply your firm with product (linked from the "Chat" tab of the Globalview.org homepage). If your firm needs the password to access the message board/chat room forum, please contact your simulation administrator, Kristi.

 

Note that BOTH teams must agree to the terms of a contract before it can be executed. Firms entering illegal contracts (contracts entered and submitted without the consent of the other team), will be ejected from the simulation.

 

*Remember that Peacock does NOT sell raw materials or plant hours. To purchase raw materials, use the "Raw Materials" decision form. These materials must be ordered one quarter in advance of using them in production. These will always be your cheapest source of raw materials.

 

To order plant hours, use the "Capacity" decision form to order stage 1 and stage 2 plant hours in the area or areas of your choice.
