  1. In your judgment, do the managers of the Robert Hall store have any ethical obligations to change their salary policies? If you do not think they should change, then explain why they have an obligation to change and describe the kinds of changes they should make. Would it make any difference to your analysis if, instead of two departments in the same store, it involved two different Robert Hall Stores, one for men and one for women? Would it make a difference if two stores (one for men and one for women) owned by different companies were involved? Explain each of your answers in terms of the relevant ethical principles upon which you are relying.
  2. Suppose that there were very few males applying for clerks’ jobs in Wilmington while females were flooding the clerking job market. Would this competitive factor justify paying males more than females? Why? Suppose that 95 percent of the women in Wilmington who were applying for clerks’ jobs were single women with children who were on welfare while 95 percent of the men were single with no families to support. Would this need factor justify paying females more than males? Why? Suppose for the sake of argument that men were better at selling than women, would this justify different salaries?
  3. If you think the managers of the Robert Hall store should pay their male and female clerks equal wages because they do “substantially the same work” then do you also think that ideally each worker’s salary should be pegged to the work he or she individually performs (such as by having each worker sell on commission)? Why? Would a commission system be preferable from a utilitarian point of view considering the substantial book keeping expenses it would involve? From the point of view of justice? What does the phrase substantially the same mean to you?

Was it morally wrong for an individual to use Napster’s website and software to copy for free the copy righted music on another person’s hard drive? If you believe it was wrong, then explain exactly why it was wrong. If you believe it was not morally wrong, then how would you defend your views against the claim that such copying is stealing? Assume that it was not Illegal for an individual to copy music using Napster. Would there be anything immoral with doing so? Explain?

  1. Assume that it is morally wrong for a person to use Napster’s website and software to make a copy of copyrighted music. Who, then, world be morally responsible for this person’s wrong doing? Would only the person himself be morally responsible? Was Napster, the company, morally responsible?

Wash shawn Fanning morally responsible? Was any employee of Napster, the company, morally responsible? Was the operator of the server or that portion of the Internet that the person used morally responsible? What if the person did not know that the music was copyrighted or did not think that it was illegal to copy copyrighted music?

  1. Do the music companies share any of the moral responsibility for what has happened? How do you think technology like Napster is likely to change the music industry? In you judgment, are these changes ethically good or ethically bad?

Case – 2        (20 Marks)

Boots with six – inch heels are the latest fashion rage among young Japanese women. Several teens have died after tripping over their shoes and fracturing their skulls. However, followers of the style claim they are willing to risk twisted ankles, broken bones, bruised faces, and other dangers associated with the platform shoes. One teenager said, “ I’ve fallen and twisted my ankle many times, but they are so cute that I won’t give them up until they go out of fashion.” Many consumers around the world seem to be willing to suffer for the sake of fashion. Others argue that we are merely pawns in the hands of designers, who conspire to force unwieldy fashions down our throats.

CONSUMER BEHAVIOR

No. 1

The slogan for the movie Godzilla was “Size does matter.”  Should this be the slogan for America as well?  Many marketers seem to believe so.  The average serving size for a fountain drink has gone from 12 ounces to 20 ounces.  An industry consultant explains that the 32 – ounce Big Gulp is so popular because “people like something large in their hands.  The large the better.”  Hardee’s Monster Burger, complete with two beef patties and five pieces of bacon, weighs in at 63 grams of fat and more than 900 calories.  Clothes have ballooned as well: Kick wear makes women’s jeans with 40 – inch diameter legs.  The standard for TV sets used to be 19 inches; now it’s 32 inches.  Hulking SUVs have replaced tiny sports cars as the status vehicle of the new millennium.  One consumer psychologist theorizes that consuming big things is reassuring: “Large things compensate for our vulnerability,” she says.  “It gives us insulation.  The feeling that we’re less likely to die.”  What’s up with our fascination with bigness?  Is this a uniquely American preference?  Do you believe that “bigger’s better?”  Is this a sound marketing strategy?

  1. 2

Some die-hard fans were not pleased when the Rolling Stones sold the tune “Start Me Up” for about $4 million to Microsoft, which wanted the classic song to promote its windows 95 launch.  The Beach Boys sold “Good Vibrations” to Cadbury Schweppes for its Sunkist soft drink, Steppenwolf offered its “Born to be Wild” to plug the Mercury Cougar, and even Bob Dylan sold “The Times They Are A- Changin” to Coopers & Lybrand (now called price Waterhouse Coopers).  Other rock legends have refused to play the commercial game, including Bruce Springsteen, the Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, R.E.M. and U2.  According to U2’s manager, “Rock’ n roll is the last vestige of independence.  It is undignified to put that creative effort and hard work to the disposal of a soft drink or beer or car.”  Singer Neil Young is especially adamant about not selling out; in his song “This Note’s for you,” he croons, “Ain’t singing for Pepsi, ain’t singing for Coke, I don’t sing for nobody, makes me look like a joke”.  What’s your take on this issue?  How do you react when one of your favorite songs turns up in a commercial?  Is this use of nostalgia an effective way to market a product?  Why or why not?

  1. 3

Some market analysts see a shift in values among young people.  They claim that this generation has not had a lot of stability in their lives. They are fed up with superficial relationships, and are yearning for a return to tradition.  This change is reflected in attitudes toward marriage and family.  One survey of 22 –24 year old women found that 82 percent thought motherhood was the most important job in the world.  Brides’ magazine reports a swing toward traditional weddings – 80 percent of brides today are tossing their garters.  Daddy walks 78 percent of them down the aisle.  So, what’s your take on this?  Are young people indeed returning to the value of their parents (or even their grandparents)?  How have these changes influenced your perspective on marriage and family?

  1. 4

Does sex sell?  There’s certainly enough of it around, whether in print ads, television commercials, or on Web sites.  When Victoria’s Secret broadcast a provocative fashion show of skimpy lingerie live on the Web (after advertising the show on the Super Bowl) 1.5 million visitors checked out the site before it crashed due to an excessive number of hits.  Of course, the retailer was taking a risk since by its own estimate 90 percent of its sales are from women.  Some of them did not like this display of skin.  One customer said she did not feel comfortable watching the Super Bowl ad with her boyfriend: “It’s not that I’m offended by it; it just makes me feel inferior”.

Perhaps the appropriate question is not does sex sell, but should sex sell?  What are your feelings about the blatant use of sex to sell products? Do you think this tactic works better when selling to men than to women?  Does exposure to unbelievably attractive men and women models only make the rest of us “normal” folks unhappy and insecure? Under what conditions (if any) should sex be used as a marketing strategy?

  1. 5

New interactive tools are being introduced that allow surfers on sites such as landsend.com to view apparel product selections on virtual models in full, 360 – degree rotational view.   In some cases the viewer can modify the bodies, face, skin coloring, and the hairstyles of these models.  In others, the consumer can project his or her own likeness into the space by scanning a photo into a “makeover” program.  Boo.com plans to offer – 3-D pictures that can be rotated for close looks, even down to the stitching on a sweater, as well as online mannequins that will incorporate photos of shoppers and mimic voice patterns.  Visit landsend.com or another site that offers a personalized mannequin.  Surf around.  Try on some clothes.  How was your experience – how helpful was this mannequin?  When you shop for clothes online, would you rather see how they look on a body with dimensions the same as yours, or on a different body?  What advice can give Web site designers who are trying to personalize theses shopping environments by creating life – like models to guide you through the site?

  1. 6

Religious symbolism increasingly is being used in advertising, even though some people object to this practice.  For example, a French Volkswagen ad for the relaunch of the Golf showed a modern version of the Last Supper with the tagline, “Let’s us rejoice, my friends, for a new Golf has been born.”  A group of clergy in France sued the company and the ad had to be removed from 10,000 billboards.  One of the bishops involved in the suit said, “Advertising experts have told us that ads aim for the sacred in order to shock, because using sex does work anymore.”  Do you agree? Should religion be used to market products?  Do you find this strategy effective or offensive?  When and where is this appropriate, if at all?

  1. 7.

Boots with six – inch heels are the latest fashion rage among young Japanese women.  Several teens have died after tripping over their shoes and fracturing their skulls.  However, followers of the style claim they  are willing to risk twisted ankles, broken bones, bruised faces, and other dangers associated with the platform shoes.  One teenager said, “ I’ve fallen and twisted my ankle many times, but they are so cute that I won’t give them up until they go out of fashion.”   Many consumers around the world seem to be willing to suffer for the sake of fashion.  Others argue that we are merely pawns in the hands of designers, who conspire to force unwieldy fashions down our throats.  What do you think ?  What is and what should be the role of fashion in our society ?  How important is it for people to be in style ?  What are the pros and cons of keeping up with the latest fashions ?  Do you believe that we are at the mercy of designers.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT

Q.1 : A plant consumes 4,500 tons of furnace oil per year (GCV =10,200 kCal/kg), as well as  43,000 MWh of electricity per year. Draw the pie-chart of percentage share of each type of  energy based on consumption in kCal (1 kWh = 860 kCal)

Q2) How much Stream is recuire in a heat exchange to heat 120 kg/ hour of a process fluid From 40o C to 90o C. The specific heat of process fluid is 0.24 kCal/kg oC and the latent heat  of steam is 540 kCal/ kg

Q.3

The following table shows the import bill of fossil fuels in million metric tonnes (MMT) and its cost in Crores Rupees over the last eight years.

(i)        calculate the average annual percentage increase of fossil fuel imports

(ii)       calculate the average annual percentage increase of the import bill

(iii)     calculate the average costs for the last eight years, in Rs. Per metric ton of imported fossil fuels.

Q.4

Fuel substitution from a high cost fuel to a low cost fuel in boilers is common to reduce energy bill.  For the following situations calculate:

 

  • annual reduction in energy costs in Crore Rs.
  • annual change in energy consumption in %. (Calorific value of fuels not required for calculations)

 

Before substitution:

 

Steam output                       =                                  6 tons/hour

Fuel consumption   =                                  1 ton oil per 13 tons of steam.

Operating hours      =                                  6400 / Year

Fuel costs                  =                                  Rs.13,000 /ton of oil

Boiler thermal efficiency (yearly average)=       82%

 

After Substitution:

 

Steam output                       =          6 tons/hour

Fuel consumption   =          3 tons of waste wood per 13 tons of steam

Fuel costs                  =          Rs.2,000 / ton of waste wood

Boiler thermal efficiency (yearly average)         = 74%

Q.5 A company invests Rs.10 lakhs and completes an energy efficiency project at the beginning of year 1. The firm is investing its own money and expects an internal rate of return, IRR, of at least 26% on constant positive annual net cash flow of Rs.2 lakhs, over a period of 10 years, starting with year 1.

 

  • Will the project meet the firm’s expectations?
  • What is the IRR of this measure?

Q.1) A waste heat recovery system can be installed in a furnace, which will cost Rs. 7,00,000/- to  install. This system is expected to have a useful life of 6 years. The salvage value will be Rs.  2,00,000/-. The system will reduce the energy cost by Rs. 2,00,000/- per year, when it operates at full capacity. However the plant will be operating at partial capacity for the first 3 years and the annual energy savings will be at 70% of the energy cost savings at full capacity (Rs. 1,40,000/-). (20 Marks)

The new system will entail a maintenance cost of Rs. 10,000/- per year for the first 3 years and Rs.12,000 per year for the next 3 years. A major overhaul is required in the 3rd year, which  will cost Rs 1,00,000/-

  1. If discount rate is 10%, calculate the NPV and find out whether this energy conservation measure is profitable
  2. What is the profitability index for the project?

Q.2

An energy auditor undertakes the energy audit of a steam system. The operating  data is given as per the schematic diagram given below

 

 

Key data and assumptions are enunciated below:

 

  1. a) Specific enthalpy of water at 10 kg/cm2 (g) pressure :           186 kCal/kg
  2. b) Specific enthalpy of evaporation/latent heat at 10 kg/cm2 (g) pressure :           478 kCal/kg

 

  1. c) Dryness fraction of steam generated :           95
  2. d) Coal consumption :           840 kg/ hr
  3. e) Net calorific value (NCV) of imported coal :           6269 kCal/kg
  4. f) Moisture in coal :           5%
  5. g) Hydrogen in coal :           4%

Other parameters as indicated in the above figure      :

 

Based on preliminary data assessment as stated above, calculate the following:

 

  1. Feed water temperature to boiler
  2. Boiler efficiency by direct method on GCV basis

iii.       If the condensate return is enhanced to 6 TPH (steam generation of 7 TPH remaining same) what will be the reduction in coal consumption?
