I compile a detailed report on “Operation Geronimo” in the context of logistics. Ans :
Operation Geronimo
Osama bin Laden, head of the Islamist militant group al-Qaeda, was killed in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, shortly after 1 a.m. local time by a United States special forces military unit. The operation, code-named Operation Neptune Spear, was ordered by United States President Barack Obama and carried out in a US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operation by a team of United States Navy SEALs from the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (also known as DEVGRU or informally by its former name, SEAL Team Six) of the Joint Special Operations Command, with support from CIA operatives on the ground. The raid on bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan was launched from Afghanistan. After the raid, US forces took bin Laden's body to Afghanistan for identification, then buried it at sea within 24 hours of his death. •The raid was carried out by approximately two dozen helicopter-borne United States Navy SEALs from the Red Squadron of the Joint Special Operations Command's United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU). •For legal reasons (namely that the US is not at war with Pakistan), the military personnel assigned to the mission were temporarily transferred to the control of the civilian Central Intelligence Agency. •The DEVGRU SEALs operated in two teams and were reportedly equipped with Heckler & Koch 416 carbine military assault rifles (with attached suppressors), night-vision goggles, body armor and handguns. •A total of "79 commandos and a dog" were involved in the raid. The military working dog was a Belgian Malinois named Cairo. The dog was tasked with tracking "anyone who tried to escape and to alert SEALs to any approaching Pakistani security forces". The dog was also to be used to help deter any Pakistani ground response to the raid and to help look for any hidden rooms or hidden doors in the...

...The sequence of exercises through which the child is introduced to the group operations with the Golden Beads
Math operations include addition, multiplication, subtraction, and division. All these operations require full understanding of quantities on a concrete level before moving to the abstract level of performing these operations mentally. So the first exercise introduced to the child to prepare him for theseoperations; is the “Number Rods”. The ten number rods are graduated in length from 4 inches length for the shortest one, to 40 inches length for the longest one. The different four inch sections are alternately colored red and blue and can be counted on each rod. So , each rod consists of distinct countable units, united together to represent a number. This overcomes the difficulty of adding one unit after another in a sum total. “The fact that a group is enlarged through the addition of a unit, and that this increasing must be considered; constitutes the chief obstacle for the children of three and a half to four, in learning how to count.” Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child, page 263
Several activities are done with the number rods. All of them are activities of moving and joining. One time the child builds them next to each other starting with the shortest and ending with the longest, and another time, he builds them on top of each other. All this...

...CIA Covert Operations: Panama and Nicaragua
In the 1950's, the repression of domestic political dissent reached near
hysteria. In the process the CIA's covert operations, already in progress in
Europe, expanded worldwide. By 1953, according to the 1970's Senate
investigation, there were major covert programs under way in 48 countries,
consisting of propaganda, paramilitary, and political action operations. In
1949, the agency's covert action department had about 300 employees and 47
stations. In the same period, the budget for these activities grew from $4.7
million to $82 million. In this paper I will discuss the United States' use of
covert actions using Panama and Nicaragua as examples. I had planned on writing
my paper on Manuel Noriega and his connections with the CIA but the more I read
into him I found the major topic outlying him was much more interesting. So
with that I will continue on with this paper showing my findings on the CIA and
thier covert operations.
Covert operations have become a way of life and death for millions of
people world wide who have lost their lives to these actions. By 1980, covert
operations were costing billions of dollars. CIA Director William Casey was
quoted as saying "covert actions were the keystone of U.S. policy in the Third
World."(Agee, 2) Throughout the CIA's 45 years, one president after another has
used covert...

Dear Student,
The Order of Operations is not one of the hardest, nor is it one of the easiest things that you will have to learn in Algebra and other mathematical classes. To begin in learning the Order of Operations, you must follow the steps, hence the "order" of the operation. To start off, the first step would be to do anything that is inside of grouping symbols ([ ], ( ), { }). Next you would have to do powers from the left to the right (9 squared). Following the Order of Operations, the next phase of a problem would be to do all of the multiplication and division from the left to the right (*, /). The final stage in the Order of Operations is to do all of the addition and subtraction from the left to the right (+, -). Now, you just have to finish by putting it altogether and finding the answer.
Example-
3*6(35-3+5)10squared
1) First do
anything inside 3*6*37*10squared
grouping symbols.
2) Next you do powers 3*6*37*100
from left to right.
3) Now multiplication 66,600
and division from the
left to the right.
4) Lastly you would do
addition and subtraction
but this problem doesn't
have any.
Above is an example of how the Order of Operations works. It should always be done this way. An example of someone doing it the wrong way is below:
3*6(35-3+5)10squared
1) As you can see 18(35-3+5)10squared...

The operation network of Tesco in UK are the largest within the Group, with over 3300 stores and 310,000 colleagues. Tesco has been trying to build a better supermarket in the UK and deliver the things that matter to their customers—great service, range, quality and great value.The key factors for Tesco to success include staffs, goods, delivery, layout, price and quality. For example,Tesco will invite over 1000 their customers come and try their new products and services every year. In the process of consulting customers face by face, Tesco is enable to receive feedbacks immediately and advices to improve their insufficiency.
1.1 The Operation of Tesco
A. Facilities
Facilities include the location, size and focus of operation resources. Where the production facilities should be located, the size of the facility, goods and services should be produced at the each location, and to what market each facility should serve these decisions are taken in this category. The Tesco I described is located in loughborough. There are lots of facilities placing inside and outside Tesco. E.g. phone shop,coffee shop etc. There are two graphs showing how many facilities nearby Tesco or in the Tesco can be used. Except of products facilities, the facilities service of Tesco is also...

In our modern market economy, given the dynamic nature of the environment, where competition reaches outstanding levels and variables such as consumer demand are increasingly more difficult to analyze and predict, it all comes to the abilities of managers to keep their companies successful. CEO’s, marketing and operations managers, they all play a vital role in the profitability of their companies, no matter if they are small regional companies or large multinational corporations.
Since the start of the economic crisis in 2008, all national economies face difficulties, both in the goods and the financial markets. This is also the case of Romania, which started as one of the most promising emerging economies in the Eastern European area. Now the country is struggling to meet budget deficit targets and pay back IMF loans.
Even in these rough conditions, S.C. Marinaden S.R.L. (Limited Liability - the equivalent of the British Ltd.) remains one of the largest furniture manufacturers and retailers in the country’s Northern region. Ever since this company was started 50 years ago, it succeeded in being one of the top players in the field. The company has two manufactory facilities located at the outskirts of Iasi and Suceava (two of the largest cities in the region), which work around the clock to make sure all demand is met. As points of sale, the company uses more than 10 rented spaces in major cities at the moment, each of them being located...

Operation Management Assignment
Liu Zhenya(Harry)
2014.2.26
Words[1724]Question1: Why is operations management important in this company ?Operations management refers to the administration of business practices to create the highest level of efficiency possible within an organization. Operations management is concerned with converting materials and labor into goods and services as efficiently as possible to maximize the profit of an organization (Stevenson, W. J., & Hojati, M., 2007). The operations function comprises a significant percentage of the employees and physical assets in most organizations. Operations managers are concerned with each step in providing a product or service. They determine what should go into an operating system, such as equipment, labor, facilities, materials, energy, and information, to produce the output(Stevenson, William J., and Mehran Hojati., 2007). Operations managers are also responsible for critical activities such as materials management, capacity planning, purchasing, scheduling and quality.
The importance of operations management has increased dramatically in recent years. Significant competition, shorter product and service life cycles, better educated and quality-conscious consumers, and the capabilities of new technology have placed pressures on the operations function to improve productivity...
