Fishery Improvement Projects: How Retailers and the Supply Chain Advance Seafood Sustainability

Fishery Improvement Projects: How Retailers and the Supply Chain Advance Seafood Sustainability
Written by: Nadine S. Bartholomew, Consultant Written for: Food Marketing Institute (FMI)

Disclaimer: This publication is for retailers who believe there is need for sustainable seafood products in their stores and want tools and resources to help them discern which products are in fact more sustainable. One note of caution: this publication DOES NOT recommend that buyers and category managers source more sustainable products. That decision should be based on the individual retailer’s sustainability priorities and procurement strategies. We have tried to offer balanced information, not favoring one approach to seafood sustainability over another. The inclusion of company or organization examples in this publication is intended strictly for learning purposes and does not constitute an endorsement of the individuals, organizations or companies. Further, when a company program or organization is highlighted, we are not promoting their products or services but rather providing an example of the process they use to increase or improve sustainability in the value chain. Published: March 2014

The Title of the Project Is “to Identify, Study and Suggest Improvements on the Sales and Distribution Strategies of Fmcg Products in Rural India.”

... PROJECT PROPOSAL Title The title of the project is “To identify, study and suggest improvements on the sales and distribution strategies of FMCG products in Rural India.” Rationale Rural marketing and rural penetration are very key issues in FMCG companies today. With heavy penetration of all FMCG categories in urban India and with a highly fragmented market in most categories, the only way the categories can show substantial growth is through penetrating deeper and deeper into rural India. This involves creating product awareness, creating brand awareness, generating trials and facilitating repeats. In the whole process, sales and distribution of these products forms the backbone. The dynamics of selling FMCG products in rural areas is very different from urban areas, especially because media has a lower reach in these areas and Cable & Satellite penetration in these areas is quite low. Hence the sales and distribution function of a company will largely determine the fate of its products in rural areas. Therefore it will be very interesting to study what works for a category in rural areas and whether such learnings can be applied across categories to facilitate growth in rural areas. Scope The project would comprehensively cover S&D issues in rural India and will try to address them. Some of these issues are:  Channel design and channel features  Retailer profiling and retailer management  Operational design associated with channel......

System Improvements

...System Improvements Gregory Williams INF 630 Dr. Steven Pierce 2 August 2013 Given our understanding of the current system’s scope, problems, and opportunities, we can now establish system improvement objectives (Whitten & Bentley, 2007). The purpose of this task is to establish the criteria against which any improvements to the system will be measured and to identify any constraints that may limit flexibility in achieving those improvements. The criteria for success should be measured in terms of objectives. Objectives represent the first attempt to establish expectations for any new system. In addition to identifying objectives, any known constraints must also be identified. Constraints place limitations or delimitations on achieving objectives. Deadlines, budgets, and required technologies are examples of constraints (Whitten & Bentley, 2007). The history of information systems coincides with the history of computer which emerged in the late twentieth century. It is an academic/professional discipline bridging the business field and the well-defined computer science field (Whitten & Bentley, 2007). This process contains a theoretical foundation with more common legacy to include people, procedures, data, software, and hardware that is used to gather and analyze digital information. The nature of the information system that I have selected is Internal and External System Users. The reason why I chose both of these is because I have......

Process Improvement

... PROCESS IMPROVEMENT Process improvement refers to making a process more effective, efficient, or transparent. It is a continuous process. Process improvement helps an organization to view process value through the eyes of the customer. It helps to define, manage, and measure a process in order to regularly evaluate it using data-driven information. It reduces unnecessary business costs. The primary goal is to identify and understand issues in order to recognize solutions and implement improvements to stay aligned with customer needs and expectations. The Process Improvement Methodology serves as a common framework for understanding the ongoing nature of a process. It provides a set of phased activities for analysis of an existing process for the specific purpose of identifying improvement opportunities. Finally, it provides direction as to appropriate process management and periodic process review and evaluations geared toward ongoing improvement. The recommended tools you use will vary depending on scope of effort or size of process. Process improvement is an ongoing effort. Why is Process improvement important? All companies need to improve all their processes all the time. The ideal outcome is that jobs can be done cheaper, quicker, easier and most importantly safe. Experience also confirms that process improvement brings a significantly positive return on investment ROI and improvement in key business indicators. Process improvement is important to......

However, there is not only one scenario that can affect the hospitals but there are several scenarios that can create an impact on the functions of the hospital. There are three scenarios that would be highlighted in the current topic. These three scenarios have a tendency to put a hospital at risk for financial stability. The first scenario that can produce a negative impact on the hospital risk is related to patient care and safety. The second scenario is related to the physical plant. The third and last scenario is related to staffing. The role of HIM practitioner in this regard would be very important. They would serve as a clinical quality assessment resource and as a team member to perform their tasks related to healthcare work. Therefore, all the issues related to three scenarios will be discussed in detail. The impetus for quality improvement has been driven in recent years by three main factors: 1. The amount of money that the US spends on healthcare per capita and as a percent of GDP is far higher than any other country in the world. We spend 15%...

Continuous Improvement

...AMES Continuous Improvement Abstract This paper presents the continuous improvement efforts that Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services implemented in January 2013. AMES has just passed one year under the new processes established by the continuous improvement team. The paper compares aircraft delivery times before and after continuous improvement efforts using a lower tail t Test of hypothesis for the mean. The null hypothesis is continuous improvement did not improve aircraft turn time. However an inference made from statistical hypothesis t-test is that the continuous improvement efforts improved the turn time of heavy maintenance aircraft. AMES Continuous Improvement The aircraft maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) business is competitive on a global scale. To be competitive in this industry the MRO must produce a reliable aircraft on time at a low cost. These match the top three concerns of any MRO customer cost, schedule, and quality. Airborne Maintenance and Engineering Services (AMES) is an upstart MRO formed in 2009. AMES is known for excellent aircraft quality/reliability at a higher price and longer schedule. AMES currently has a strong revenue stream from 2 sister airlines under the same Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) umbrella. Looking forward into future growth AMES must maintain high reliability, improve turn time and not raise cost in the process. In 2012 ATSG hired Empower MX, a consulting firm to review......

Springfield Interchange Improvement Project

...Springfield Interchange Improvement Project design. In the implementation phase, the discussion addresses detailed design, construction, and commis- sioning. Finally, in the closeout phase, the discussion reflects on overall performance, project status, and project evaluation. The Inception Phase The Springfield Interchange is one of the most complex and dangerous interchanges in the United States (Sipress & Reid, 1999). Situated fifteen miles south of Washington, DC, where the Capital Beltway intersects Interstate Highways I-95 and I-395, the interchange is aptly nicknamed the ‘‘Mixing Bowl,’’ as four of the region’s heaviest streams of traffic rush together in a fury of bobbing and weaving and last- second lane changing in an effort to negotiate the outdated traffic patterns. As many as 375,000 vehicles commute via this route every day, in addition to the constant traffic of I-95, the primary East Coast commercial corridor. The interchange held the distinction of having more accidents than any section of the Beltway or any other area of road in Virginia. Although delays and driver confusion continually reinforced the need to improve the interchange, it was traffic safety issues that finally moved the project off the wish list and onto the drawing board (Behr, 1999). Although overriding safety concerns drove the project, not everyone was excited about the......

Improvement

...the time. These are all learnable ways of thinking. You can learn to think like the top people. And when you think like the top people, you will get the same results as the top people. It's a law that says that your outer world will always be a mirror or a reflection of your inner world. So therefore your outer world today is a reflection of what you're thinking about today most of the time. If you change what you're thinking, if you reprogram, then your outer world will change, so it's consistent with your inner program. It's sort of like projecting on a screen. Imagine that your eyes are projection lenses, the screen is your reality or your world. And your thoughts are what are projected through your eyes under the screen. You always project yourself under the screen of your life. Wherever you look, you see yourself. Wherever you look, there is yourself reflected back. So how do top people think most of the time? They have what we call 'orientations'. Now an 'orientation' is a general way of thinking. And the 1st orientation is what we call 'future-orientation'. That means that top people think about the future most of the time. Top people think about where they're going most of the time. But top people have a special way of thinking about the future. And the special way is this, is they imagine a perfect future for themselves. They imagine a happy future. They imagine an ideal future for themselves. So here's an exercise. Imagine that you have a magic wand and that you......

Fisheries Essay

...Red Drum Fisheries Management of Coastal Florida Danny W. Lyles COMM/215 May 7, 2012 David Mumford Abstract This paper is intended to evaluate the success or failure of the fisheries management regarding Red Drum or Sciaenops ocellatus in the coastal Florida area of the United States. The Red Drum, or the common name “Redfish”, is a popular sport fish among anglers due to its reputation as a formidable adversary, and the value of it on the market for table fare. The advent of blackened recipes from the bayous of the southeast has also increased its popularity. Red Drum Fisheries Management of Coastal Florida The Red Drum inhabits inshore, near shore, and offshore waters throughout the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The adults spawn in rivers, bayous, and tidal areas and the fry will reside there for up to four years. This species can reach lengths of forty five inches and weigh as much as fifty pounds. Spawning is triggered by cooling waters and a decrease in daylight hours associated with late summer and fall. In 1989, the Red Drum was considered overfished in large part due to the fishing pressure placed on the species by recipes of “Blackened Redfish” introduced in Louisiana Cajun style restaurants and the chef’s that enjoyed success from the new menu item. In an attempt to control and regulate the harvesting of the species, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) instituted a slot limit of eighteen to twenty – seven......

Process Improvement

...The Juran Trilogy: It is one of the best approaches developed by Dr. Joseph Juran. It has three components: Planning, control, and improvement, and is referred to as the Juran Trilogy. It is based loosely on financial processes such as budgeting (planning), expense measurement (control), and cost reduction (improvement). Quality Planning: The structured process for designing products and services that meet new breakthrough, goals and ensure that customer needs are met. The processes are called Design for Six Sigma or Concurrent Engineering. This can be particularly challenging for a planning team, because customers are not always consistent with what they say they want. The challenge for quality planning is to identify the most important needs from all the needs expressed by the customer. The planning component begins with external customers. Once quality goals are established, marketing determines the external customers, and all organizational personnel determine the internal customer. Once the customers are determined, their needs are discovered by: Being a user of the product or service, * communicating with customers through product or service * satisfaction and dissatisfaction information, or * Simulation in the laboratory. The next step in the planning process is to develop product and/or service features that respond to customer needs, meet the needs of the organization and its suppliers, are competitive, and optimize the costs......
