Well basically, i think it is where you design and produce a product at the same time, right through from start to finish. I think its linked to matrix structure, different functioanl departments. I don't know if that is right but i think it is.

Google doesnt always have the answers With regards to the specification simultaneous engineering is relating to how each aspect of the shoes development is performed in conjunction with one another, this generally cuts down the time for the shoes production. My scanner is playing up at the moment, as in Windows XP in general, so it is taking longer than expected to upload these files - hopefully should be finished by tomorrow.

forget that all about royal mail.. just read it now.. looks like a good casestudy lots of info provided and yes i feel lean production will play an important role in the questions, alongside management styles and motivation... sources of finance too in fact.. the hard question i reckon will most certainly be, whether he should take the French contract and leave whilst all is still relatively profitable as the forecasted figures on interest rates and inflation don't look good or whether he should continue with S4U... mail me if you think of some more stuff.. xxx

Basically Simultaneous Engineering is where all the tasks involved in the design process of a product, from the initial idea to launch of that product, are carried out together to save time. i.e all the departments work simultaneously on the same project at the same time -just in diff aspects.

In last summer's GCSE Edexcel Business Studies exam there was a question worth about 8 marks or something like that on something to do with Batch Production relating to the case study. I just hope I can make up for the production questions I did badly on back then.

As far as i am aware S4U are not implementing batch production, moreso making use of Job and Flow production.

You might not need all these in the actual examination, but these are mentioned somewhat in the specification so best to be aware of them;
  • Calculating percentage market share;
    (Brand Sales / Market Sales) * 100
  • Calculating percentage increase
    (Change in Value / Original Value) * 100
  • Capacity Utilisation
    (Existing Output / Maximum Possible Output) * 100
  • Price Elasticity of Demand
    Percentage change in quantity demanded / Percentage change in price
  • Income Elasticity of Demand
    Percentage change in quantity demanded / Percentage change in income
  • Breakeven Output
    Fixed Costs / Contribution per unit
  • Contribution per unit
    Price per unit - Variable cost per unit
  • Total Contribution
    Contribution per unit * Number of units sold

Can anyone explain the Modules to me.

I'm taking Unit 1, 2 and 3 on Monday.

Unit 1 - I know, is the marketing etc..paper - no case study.

However, I don't understand what Unit 2 and 3 will be about? Will they both have questions on the case study which relate to that unit?

Checkout this page for a detailed look at the case study, and even some pre-examination tips from a examiner too

Exactly that. Unit 2 is known as People and Operations, and in the examinations you will be asked 5 questions about People and Operations in relation to the pre-released case study on S4U, the bespoke sportswear company. Unit 3 is known as External Influences and Objectives, this module covers more of the economics aspect of Business Studies, and like with Unit 2 you will be asked 5 questions about External Influences and Objectives in relation to S4U.

Check one of my earlier posts for some mock questions on both BUS2 and BUS3.
EDIT: Don't forget that whilst Unit 1 covers aspects of Marketing, it is split equally into two, also covering Accounting and Finance as well.
