Service Quality(Candlenut Kitchen, Singapore): 589706

Question:

The aim of this proposal is to develop a ‘new’ service product concept and analyse its feasibility based on in – depth research and the utilisation of relevant theoretical concepts and tools learnt during this course. You have the option to either explore: 1. A new service product idea from the perspective of a new business* that you would like to build (i.e., a ‘major service innovation), Or 2. A ‘new’ service for an existing business* Important note: Although a ‘new’ service can include ‘style changes’ and ‘service improvements’, please ensure that your proposed new service involves MAJOR changes to, or requires the development of brand new ideas for each of, the seven marketing mix elements applicable to services, e. g. ‘product line extension’ or ‘major service innovation’ In other words, the development of a smart phone application to facilitate service delivery, for example, in most cases are not suitable for the purposes of this assessment). (*Note also that the ‘business’ you choose to explore need not be limited to profit – making organisations, but can be based on a not – for – profit service organization.) It is expected that the proposal will include detailed information and analysis of the external environment relevant to the business, as well as of each of the seven marketing mix elements for the ‘new’ service. That is, you will explore the new service idea’s feasibility based on the existing/potential performance and/or capabilities as well as on the environme ntal trends/conditions relevant to the existing/envisioned organization. Some of the things you may consider doing and/or including in the report may include, but not limited to: * – Conducting a small scale market research to ‘test’ out the new serv ice idea (e.g., with a small sample of the target market, and/or with ‘experts’ with the relevant knowledge/expertise, for their feedback), * – Conducting short interview/s with an existing business owner (whom you may already have an established rapp ort) or a service firm audit to explore any issues or problems the business may be experiencing (and require improving), on which you can base your ‘new’ service suggestion.

Answer:

1. Introduction and Business Overview

a. Background of the selected organization

The chosen organization for the report is Candlenut Kitchen, which is a restaurant in Singapore situated at the Dempsey Road of the country. The restaurant has been featured in many local and international publications such as Singapore’s “8 Days” magazine, diningcity and London’s Financial Times. The restaurant is widely known for its few selective dishes such as Peranakan cuisine, which also won a one star rating for the company from the Michelin Guide of Singapore edition (DanielFoodDiary.com 2017). Despite the success, the restaurant is found to be less active on innovative ideas, which could add new dimensions to the existing business. Innovative dimension such as the inception of a new service, which is feasible to the requirements of the community, is yet to be considered. The main purpose of this assignment is to identify a new service for the company, which could enhance its existing business and the revenues. The learner has identified a potential new service for the company, which is to deliver the foods to the official population in Singapore.

The Journal of Neuroscience: 616047

Question:

Describe about the Case Study of The Journal of Neuroscience.

Answer:

To what extent is the state instability hypothesis supported by the study?

The hypothesis postulates that state instability is associated with an increase in sleep drive and it leads to variable neurobehavioral performances. The research study largely supports the hypothesis. This study illustrated differences between neural activation during lapses in sleep deprivation and lapses after a normal night’s sleep.  The study made three predictions: 1) sleep deprivation would attenuate peak signals in transient lapse, 2) SD lapses would lead to lapse related lowering of activity in the visual cortex and 3) SD lapses would change sub-cortical activation patterns (Chee et al., 2008). Brain imaging studies of the participants showed that sleep deprivation resulted in less accuracy and more variability in the performance. A prominent long right tail was observed after SD in correct trial’s distribution of response. An increase in intra-individual variability was also observed, which showed correlation with previous studies.  Task related activation was found to be reduced in SD in comparison to rested wakefulness. In accordance with previous studies, it was observed that sleep deprivation did not modulate the relation between lapses and peristimulus activity reduction. The reduction in this signal was comparatively small between the difference in peak signals induced by such lapses in both the states.  The study established that increased peak signals in regions that control cognition were associated with the lapses in SD. The elevation in this signal was less pronounced in SD state compared to RW. Lapses in RW in the inferior occipital regions showed no relation to any small or large peak signals. However, in SD they were found to be linked to a reduction in extrastriate peak signals. This was in accordance to the bias model of selective attention (Chua et al., 2014). On comparing cortical responses, greater bilateral intraparietal sulcus and medial frontal peak signals were found to be correlate with slow reponses. Fastest responses failed to create higher activation in the extrastriate visual cortex region (Devita et al., 2017). This was completely congruent with the hypothesis. Thus, the study found that SD attenuated activation in brain during lapses in addition to affecting the overall activation patterns related to tasks. These findings helped in differentiating SD lapse from other lapses that occur after a normal sleep. Thus, the findings were completely in line with the theory of state instability.

Answer:

Construction materials  

Life-cycle assessment, (LCA), also referred to as life-cycle analysis or even life-cycle eco-balance among other names is a method which is used to assess the environmental impacts which are related with the stages of product life (Finnveden et al., 2009). The assessment is able to involve the analysis of the different stages which a product is able to pass through until it reaches its final product. That means from the analysis of the product from the raw material stages during extraction then the processing, manufacturing, distribution, usage, repairing and maintenance stages then the disposal or recycling stages. This process is key to analyze the products and it helps the designers of the different products to critique and analyze their products properly. Most importantly, this process is able to avoid narrow outlook on environmental issues in relation to the products. Some of the key environmental issues which are analyzed in this process revolve around the compilation of inventories, which are related to energy and material inputs and their impacts to environment when released. Moreover, this process is related to evaluation of the potential effects which are related to the identified product inputs and the effects of their release to the environment. Lastly, this process is able to interpret the result from the data derived from the different products stages in relation to the environment (Finnveden et al., 2009). This stages helps to derive an informed decision in dealing with the effects of the product life-cycle to ensure it enhance the environmental protection.
