An investigation into the influence of quality and standardisation of merchandising activities in grocery retailing chains on impulse purchasing in the Durban area

Bourel, Sandra January 2001 (has links)
Dissertation submitted in partial compliance with the requirements for the Degree of Master of Technology: Marketing, Technikon Natal, 2001. / Little is known about the implications of merchandising activities of retailers, despite the fact that retailing plays a vital role in the economy. South African retailers, who are the only players in their domestic territory, need to be aware of the economic situation and of the expansion strategies of the main international retail actors. Unlike South African retailers, international companies are experienced in the world-wide grocery retailing field and have shown a lot of determination in expanding their presence and power on an international scale. This dissertation illustrates the landscape of grocery retailing today, and the risk faced by a reactive attitude by South African retailers in the face of international competition. The dissertation provides a framework, and a complete description, for integrating merchandising activities, which include visual merchandising activities, as a crucial tool to influence consumers' buying behaviour, through their impulse buying behaviour. This research project has, as its main purpose, the identification of a relationship between merchandising activities in the grocery retailing field and the impulse buying behaviour of shoppers. The dissertation addresses three issues for efficiently managmg merchandising activities, namely, the importance of the level of standardised merchandising, the role of perceived / M

Identification of commercial items risk factors

Cummins, Robert W. 03 1900 (has links)
Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited / Since the end of the Cold War, reduced budgets have limited technology growth in the defense industry making the use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software the accepted way to build systems. Twenty years ago, almost all DOD software-intensive systems were built by awarding large multimillion-dollar contracts to defense contractors to build systems from scratch. Consequently, with dwindling budgets, the military has recognized that they can no longer build an infrastructure independent of commercial industry. The use of commercial items does not reduce or eliminate the risks associated with the traditional development of software systems. Numerous programs have stumbled for the lack of careful consideration and identification of the unique risk factors imposed by commercial items. Even though the types of programs are diverse, there are common risk factors that can be identified from the past experiences of these programs. This thesis focuses on the critical risk factors and lessons learned associated with integrating commercial items into DOD software programs. It summarize lessons learn from programs that have made extensive use of commercial items, provides a risk checklist/questionnaire to assist PMs and developers in understanding the risks associated with their developments of a system using commercial items, and suggests mitigation strategies, which can be used as guidelines for the risk factors, to consider when adopting commercial components. Providing the starting point for a systematic structure approach to the risk management of commercial items. / Major, United States Army

Potential competition and multi-product activity

Mahabir, Dhanayshar January 1994 (has links)
This thesis stresses the existence of a fundamental link between potential competition and multi-product activity. Potential competitors are identified as already-existing firms that possess "latent capacity", a principal source of scope economies, which enable firms to expand or alter their product portfolio in the short period. When latent capacity is accompanied by certain sunk costs, hit-and-run entry becomes profitable as the "latent competitor" is able to easily surmount the major barriers to entry, avoid the disadvantages in cost associated with small batch production, and exit cheaply from the various markets. This new theory of potential competition further demonstrates that when framed within a multi-product environment, the major criticisms that are levelled against the theory of contestability can be addressed. Additionally, it shows how the age-old conundrum of increasing returns and competitive behaviour may be reconciled. Empirical evidence confirms the existence of latent capacity. Such capacity is embodied in the Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) and flexible manpower resources that are increasingly being employed by firms.
