...Chapter 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards CHAPTER 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards Section 213(a)(3) of the Clean Air Act presents statutory criteria that EPA must evaluate in determining standards for nonroad engines and vehicles. The standards must "achieve the greatest degree of emission reduction achievable through the application of technology which the Administrator determines will be available for the engines or vehicles to which such standards apply, giving appropriate consideration to the cost of applying such technology within the period of time available to manufacturers and to noise, energy, and safety factors associated with the application of such technology." This chapter presents the technical analyses and information that form the basis of EPA's belief that the proposed emission standards are technically achievable accounting for all the above factors. 4.1 CI Recreational Marine The proposed emission standards CI recreational marine engines are summarized in the Executive Summary. We believe that manufacturers will be able to meet these standards using technology similar to that required for the commercial marine engine standards. This section discusses technology currently used on CI recreational marine engines and anticipated technology to meet the proposed standards. In addition, this section discusses the emission test procedures and not-to-exceed requirements. 4.1.1 Baseline Technology for CI Recreational Marine Engines We developed......

Identify Standard Setting Policies and Procedures and Develop Implications for the Accounting Profession.

...The standards setting process is a very complex but necessary process in the accounting world. The Financial Accounting Standards Board accomplishes this mission through a comprehensive and independent process that encourages broad participation, objectively considering all stakeholder views, and by being subjected to oversight by the Financial Accounting Foundation’s Board of Trustees. Through these few necessary requirements they help form a very effective and sound standard setting process. The first part of the standard setting process that plays a crucial role in this process is the Rules of Procedures. The Rules of Procedure of the standards setting process describes the FASB’s operating procedures, and includes the due process activities that are to be open to public participation or observation to provide transparency into the standards-setting process. These rules set forth procedures followed by the FASB in establishing and improving standards of financial accounting and reporting for nongovernmental entities, including procedures related to the issuance of such standards and other communications. They also describe briefly the relationship of the FASB to the Foundation and its two advisory councils, the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council and the Private Company Council. The FASB is an independent, private-sector body created to serve an important public interest. Since 1973, it has been the designated organization in the private sector for......

...Washington University Olin Business School OMM 5704 Operations Management Chayet Auditing an Operation: Some questions to ask It is likely that at some point you will be interested in evaluating a firm’s operational “intelligence” or effectiveness. This is often one of the first things consultants do when hired to solve a firm’s business problems. Analysts can benefit from understanding which firms in an industry have superior competitive operational capabilities. Marketing personnel need to understand these capabilities if they are to stimulate customer demand. And of course, management needs to know where to look to bring about improvement. Depending on your role, you may or may not be given direct access to detailed operational data. And even if you are, you may not know what questions you should be asking or what things you should be trying to observe (aside from the obvious like big piles of inventory). In this document we formulate the lessons learned in class as questions for you to pose during an operational audit. By no means is this list complete, but hopefully it is enough to get you started. The final page of this document summarizes many of the questions in the form of a “short-list.” 1. Competitive Priorities (a) What are the firm’s Competitive Priorities (Time, Price, Quality, Variety)? (b) What areas need improvement? 2. Process Flow Diagram As you tour a facility, you should gather enough information to at least sketch a process flow diagram. (a) What flows? Parts,...

...------------------------------------------------- Manzana insurance ------------------------------------------------- Manzana insurance Operations Analysis Operations Analysis Executive Summary Manzana Insurance specialises in commercial insurance, with the Fruitvale branch typically processing 40 requests per day and the product mix being 60% new policies and 40% renewal requests. The operating performance of Fruitvale is deteriorating across five of the company’s six key performance measures. Additionally, competitor Golden Gate has promised efficiency in service and offered a guarantee for time request turnarounds. Our analysis of Fruitvale’s operations, priorities and cost structure shows that: * The “first-in, first-out” processing system is implemented differently across the teams, causing RERUNs to be submitted late and leading to lost renewals. * The increase in ordinary insured losses and declining revenues from renewals is causing a decline in Fruitvale’s profitability. * The current procedure to calculate turnaround time results in a high value and is really a worst case scenario. * There is a large degree of variance in the time it takes to handle requests, which can cause both the distribution and underwriting teams have more work than capacity. This affects responsiveness, as the system has little spare capacity to deal with increased demand due to variation, seasonality or new business. Based on our analysis, we......

...INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT DUE DATE: 04 APRIL 2016 CASE STUDY Case Study: ABC COMPANY The ABC Company was a family owned, conservatively managed company. For over forty years the company enjoyed slow, steady growth in reaching its current employment level of just over 200. All expansions were financed entirely out of earnings. As the company grew, its operating procedures were periodically re-examined and modified to cope with the complex problems that accompany growth. The company developed, manufactured, and sold metering and flow control devices used in the chemical industry. Recently, as a result of declining profits, management was considering the advisability of installing a more formal system for controlling its cost of materials. The company’s product line contained about forty items, ranging in size from gauges and simple fittings to large flow meters weighing up to 150 kilogram. Most of these were made in a number of different models and sizes, so that the total number of separate products was about 300. About half were standard models whose design had not changed greatly in the last ten years; others were subject to considerable technological change; a few involved special features for different customers, sometimes being made of special alloys to resist corrosive action of certain chemicals. Some of the more complex items were supplied with or without certain fittings and refinements. The company’s position in the industry depended on its ability to keep......

Lastly, validity of the collected evidence should be "tested" before bringing it to court. This may not only help to convince the court that the suspected criminal(s) is guilty, but may also help the company to avoid a devastating counter-suit. A recommended list of factors to keep in mind to ensure the evidence's credibility can be: 1.) Prove that the expert's techniques used in the case have been tested. 2.) Show that these techniques have undergone peer review and publication. 3.) Create an error rate for the techniques used by the expert. 4.) Express government regulated standards for the techniques used (Ray, D. J. & Shpantzer, G., n. d.). A basic rule of thumb to consider is that computer forensics is "high-tech", which involves a great deal of knowledge and expertise. Knowledge of mathematics and engineering of the experts should always be proven in court beforehand during the presentation of any evidence....

What Are Policies, Standards, Specifications, Procedures and Exception

...What are policies, standards, specifications, procedures and exceptions Policy An Information Technology Policy is the highest level of the Information Technology (IT) Governance Standards documents. An IT Policy sets the direction, tone and limits for the enterprise and IT, and the IT Standards which are developed under the authority of the Policy. A Policy should seldom change. IT Policies require compliance; failure to comply may result in disciplinary action. Exceptions can only be approved by the CIO. A Policy focuses on desired results, not on the means of implementation. Accountabilities: Oversight of IT Policies is the responsibility of IT Governance. Policies must be approved by the Chief Information Officer and the Enterprise Policy Council. Standard Information Technology Standard Information Technology Standards are the most often used documents in the IT Policies and Standards Library serving as a reference for employees, contractors, consultants, and other persons. An IT Standard: • Defines requirements around a topic. The requirements may range from very specific (i.e., only 3DES and AES encryption algorithms may be used.) to broad (i.e., Web applications must check for common vulnerabilities). • Provides requirements without stating dynamic details. When dynamic details are important, an IT Standard may identify a requirement for the existence of a Specification or Procedure to contain those details. • Reviewed annually. The frequency of...
