Inefficient usage of desktop was resulting in high cost of operations. Desktops were not shared across processes because resources were already predefined to the processes. In case of high demand, desktops which otherwise are kept idle in that particular shift of operation cannot be used because the applications are not installed. This results in inefficiency of operation, inability to cope with sudden rise in demand and hence loss of money. 2.

Siemens Corporation Case Solution

...Background: Siemens Corporation is one of the world’s largest corporation focus on electrical and electronic products. The Electric motor works was the only factory survived after the War. At first, EMW mainly produced standard motors rather than customized motors, the market for standard motors was very competitive. The old strategy for Siemens for a very long time was producing a single-variety of motor to reduce cost and price aggressively. In spite of expanding the plant, EMW still cannot lower its costs to offset the lower labour rates. The competition became more fierce. By using the new strategy, EMW started to produce different varieties of motors in small production runs in order to get more profits. As a result, the standard components were replaced by customized components that was costly and automated by using dedicated automated equipment. To support the new strategy, EMW spent much money to replace almost every machine in the production line and therefore create a new manufacturing environment. Fortunately, the new strategy seems really works which changes its cost allocation system quite well and therefore help Siemens achieve success in the fierce competition of industry. Identify problems and issues Siemens Electric motor works plant has used traditional costing system for a very long time, although the operation is simple for managers to handle and resource-saving. It still brings lots of troubles as Siemens develops. Nowadays, Siemens has been a......

Siemens Electric Case

...Siemens Electric Motor Work (A) (Abridged) Background Siemens Corporation, one of the world’s largest electrical and electronic products producer, has been in business trouble due competitive environment and high costs. Its largest group, Electric Motor Works (EMW) has been focusing on producing standard as well as customized motors and found out that Siemens has great profitability in producing low volume customized A/C motors. To successful implement this new strategy, not only has EMW renovated the shop floors for process improvement, but also redesigned the components of motors. However, as the strategy implementing, the traditional cost system seemed to be inappropriate. Before, a departmental method was used for overhead allocation, which could not reflect accurate information on customized motors. Overhead costs were simply separated into three groups. While materials related and support related categories were allocated to products based on different drivers, production related overhead was traced to cost centers directly. In order to overcome issue of accuracy, EMW identified key departmental costs drivers and was trying to adopt activity-based cost system. Issues and Problems (1) Different from the traditional cost system, the simple activity-based costing system has broken up support related costs into more specific costs pools and enables support related costs to be traced according to the increase of number of orders as well as demands of special components...

Siemens Bribery Scandal

...International Management – Siemens Case Study Group Coursework Presentation Question 2 Introduction Klaus Kleinfeld took over as CEO of Siemens in 2005 from Heinrich von Pierer and was at the helm of the company until his resignation on the 25th April 2007. During his time he was seen as an enigmatic premier who transformed the company. The stock had grown by 39% since he took over (Global Business 07/05/2007). He streamlined the organisation by cutting costs, boosting innovation and expanding abroad. He even maintained a rise in the company’s share price during the bribery scandals publicity. Was the board right to accept his resignation? This was a highly sensitive decision at the time because the bribery scandals came to light whilst Kleinfeld was CEO but he had worked magic at Siemens in a very short amount of time, in only two years he had transformed Siemens and their share price had grown exponentially as a result. Based upon his track record at the company he did not deserve to be released in that manner. The bribery came to light during Klienfeld’s tenure but most of payments were made during von Pierer’s time as CEO. Kleinfeld pushed Siemens employees to make faster decisions and put as much emphasis on the customers as on the technology. He sold off the unprofitable mobile phone production to BenQ and fostered a JV between Nokia and Siemens to merge their mobile and fixed line phone equipment businesses to create one of the world’s biggest network firms.......

Siemens Case

...In EMW’s product cost system, materials and labor costs are directly assigned to the products. The overhead costs are divided to three categories: materials related overhead, production related overhead and support related overhead. Support related overhead is allocated to products based on manufacturing costs to date. Two years after the change in strategy, the traditional cost system has problems to reflect the actual cost of product accurately. It does not capture the relation between the increased support costs and the change in product mix. After some additional analysis has been conducted, Siemens find that most support costs have a closer relationship with the number of orders received and the number of customized components in a motor compared with material expense and the quantity of labor and machine hours required to produce the motor. Therefore, Siemens changes its cost system from traditional way to new method. Cost under traditional cost system Manufacturing Costs for Five Motor Orders A B C D E Cost of Base Motor: Manufacturing costs to date $247.00 $247.00 $247.00 $247.00 $247.00 Support Related Overhead (35% of other manufacturing costs) $86.45 $86.45 $86.45 $86.45 $86.45 Base Motor Cost $333.45 $333.45 $333.45 $333.45 $333.45 Cost of All Special Components: Manufacturing costs to date $32.20 $32.20 $32.20 $32.20 $32.20 Support Related Overhead (35% of other manufacturing costs) $11.27 $11.27 $11.27 $11.27 $11.27 Special......

...Siemens case Team members: Kai Chen, Boqian Sun, Zelin Meng 1.  What is the traditional (using the old costing system) cost of an order of one motor of type C (type C motors have 1 base motor and 3 special components)?  For the traditional cost of an order of one motor of type C, we can solve it based on Exhibit 4. According to the Exhibit 4, we have that the cost of base motor is DM247, and the 3 special components would be 32.2*3=96.6. Thus, the total manufacture cost would be 343.6. On the other hand, in the case we can find that the support related overhead is equal to 35% of manufacture cost, thus the support related overhead would be 343.6*.35=120.26. The total cost of an order of one motor of type C would be 343.6+120.26=463.86 or 464. 2.  After changing the allocation method to the PROKASTA system, what is the cost of an order of one motor of type C?   According to the case, under PROKASTA system, the coast of the base motor from which the customized product was derived and the cost of each custom component were calculated using the traditional cost system but with the new smaller support- related cost pool. Thus, in Exhibit 4, we can find that the cost of one motor of type c is equal to cost of bas motor plus cost of all special components. That is DM304+DM118.8=DM422.8 or 422. Besides, we also should add the order processing cost which is equal to 13800000/65625=210.28, and the special component handling which is equal to: 19500000/325000=60. All in...

Siemens Ag: Global Development

...For the exclusive use of N. Sinden, 2015. 9-602-061 REV: MARCH 18, 2002 STEFAN THOMKE Siemens AG: Global Development Strategy (A) It was the spring of 2000, but even under the afternoon shade of the palm trees at the Oberoi hotel in Bangalore, South India, it felt like summer. Horst Eberl sat contemplating the recommendations that he and his subdivisional co-head, Karl-Friedrich Hunke, would be preparing for the Siemens Information and Communications Networks (ICN) management board. Things were neat, tidy, and cool on this grassy side of the hotel. Just outside the main walls however lay the dust, pollution, and confusion of the Indian traffic. And if one took life in one’s hands by darting through the traffic, across the street lay Siemens’ regional development center in India, scattered among floors rented in three different office buildings. Two back-up power generators, as well as battery backup for all computers, helped ensure a reliable infrastructure for the 600 personnel here. What vexed Eberl and Hunke was that Deutsche Telekom, Siemens ICN’s largest customer, was upset because of slow product delivery on a new telecommunications software product, the so-called NetManager. For a variety of reasons the project had rapidly mushroomed in size and scope beyond what had been initially envisioned. To solve the problem, Eberl, co-head of ICN’s largest subdivision, had to travel some 7000 kilometers to this dusty corner of the world: despite the......

If the result is positive and shows that there is a market, it means that the project has a strong business case and it will be compared with other projects in order to have an accurate position among many other projects. Thus, the company would have a more logical resource allocation. We identify this routine carried out by R&D department in SIT is a process in the Boston Consulting Group portfolio model. 2. The different group of projects in R&D. We identify “buckets” as a reflection on the Boston Consulting Group portfolio model. For instance, New Platform Portfolio can be considered as the Wildcat business which the degree of market attractiveness is high but Siemens business position is weak. Siemens just enter a new market; a large amount of R&D resources is needed. Once, this new product has fully developed, it is transferred to the Existing Product Portfolio which we think is corresponding with the Star business which also needs much spending in R&D activities. However, Star business can bring lots of benefits and profits for the company. Furthermore, the project carried out in Technology portfolio are also part of the strategic solution.
