    @Unit 2a peeps

    What did you guys put for that tractor question about improving capacity utilization?

    Think the answers were like
    -Increased working hours for staff
    -Increase prices of the tractor
    -Buy extra land/warehouse space
    -idk the other

    I put increased working hours myself

    I put increased working hours. Half way through I thought I made a mistake and that the answer should've been the ~'sell stock' one; but then I thought they must've mentioned the working hours in the question for a reason - so stuck with that answer.

    Under utilisation is when something is lying idle somewhere. Increasing working hours doesn't increase to the yield. By removing some stock they aren't stretching themselves too far (operating at over-utilisation).

    The longer hours would also increase the potential maximum so not necessarily increase capacity utilisation

    I have to disagree with you there, but of course, what's done is done now so I am just going to explain why I disagree.

    Under Utilization is when a business is not producing enough to meet its full potential (or desired potential). Capacity utilization is all about how much of your full potential output is in use. By increasing working hours, you are utilizing your staff to hopefully produce more because they have been given a longer time, and so can create a greater amount of output per unit of input in say, a days work, rather than half a days work.

    I fail to see what it has to do with stock. Yes, you are creating stock, but capacity utilization is all about how much you're producing. Unused stock will lead to under-utilization. Removing stock (what they work with) is likely to decrease capacity utilization, rather than increase it, would it not?

    Not being picky or anything, I think they were 2 7 markers.
    I know 1 8 marker was on a supply and demand diagram.

    I get your justification but my point is that they are over doing it, not under

    No you're not being picky - I think you just took a separate exam; did you do unit 2b? I didn't.

    I really think that when someone is talking about 2A, at the beginning of every post, just write 2A (vice versa for 2B) and soon enough everyone will catch on - making this discussion a lot easier.

    For 2b section B

    4 or 8 marker on long tail
    8 marker S&D
    8 marker on double dip recession
    2 7 markers about the impact of some ideas on consumers and the retailers
    4 marker on why some high street retailers would be ok without EOS

    That's what I remember of it

    Oh yea... I remember that now. It makes no sense though because demand is obviously decreasing as it says that in the question, so why would prices go up. Did you do the same?

    Because of the evidence I moved supply to left so prices went up but I afterwards I realised it was demand
