    If a question about exchange rates comes up, would you have to talk about the £ depreciating and £ appreciating or can you just focus about one in particular? If I go into detail I cant manage to talk about both in the time frame needed

    I would talk about both and just make a point then flip it the other way.

    So, I've prepared vague answers for the following:

    Strategy to improve SHL's efficiency
    Impact of a change in exchange rate/interest rate/taxation on SHL
    Whether SHL should invest in Mardidi/new teenage brand
    Likelihood of SHL meeting £70m revenue objective
    Whether SHL's stakeholders view it as a successful business
    Evaluate the financial position of SHL
    Benefits to SHL of outshoring

    Could someone please tell me if I am missing any potential obvious questions?
    How would you evaluate the financial position of SHL?

    would you have to talk about how they could adjust the order of their product development activities and add in things like market research before initial concepts and sketches to minimise costs on products that aren't wanted as well as perhaps making efforts to reduce delivery times?

    Someones already answered this question but I've completely forgot.
    For the CPA they might ask you how can SHL improve efficiency, what can you say?

    -It allows SHL to shorten length of time to complete each project (competitive advantage)
    - resources needed for each activity can be ordered just before they're needed (JIT) this will also save money
    - by spotting float, they can redeploy resources elsewhere
    this is what i have, hope this helps

    Thank you, this helped, could you say they should put less effort and resources into activities that are not critical

    You could say that the activities that have 68 days float (G and J), only have so much float due to the suppliers taking a long time to manufacture/ ship the clothes. Therefore, the length of the critical path is kind of out of SHL's control, and swapping resources won't do much in their case. Instead they could perhaps put pressure on suppliers, or even find new suppliers such as more in Eastern Europe that will require shorter lead times. Hope that helps a little :-)

    Day before the exam, so good luck everyone! Just wanted to check if everyone had the same answers for the ratios! Maybe this will help some people out idk.

    Current Ratio 2012 - 15662/9206 = 1.7 2013 17019/10660=1.7
    Acid Test 2012 8720/9206 = 0.95 2013 10335/10660= 0.97 both unhealthy but an improvement in 2013
    Gearing 2012 1722/8779 X 100= 19.6% 2013 2648/12995 X 100 = 20.4 which is normal
    Creditor Days 2012 = 207 2013=172
    Debtor Days 2012 = 87 2013=73 days
    Debt to Equity 2012=1.24 2013=1.29
    Interest Cover 2012=3.1 2013=42.4
    ARR = 8.4%
    Payback period is a ball ache because I dont think you can work it out!
    Dont really know many other
    Some others figures that could come in handy. %change in net 12-13 = 3528.92%
    Cost of sales increase 12-13 as %= 39.9%
    PED = Mens, polo. green 2.5
    Mens Casual shirt green 1.33
    Mens casual yellow 1
    childs polo -0.4
    ladies polo 0.4
    ladies casual 0.42.

    If you can think of anymore useful ones do let me know! Although I said good luck before, I don't mean it, I need you all to fail, praying for low grade boundaries!

    Ok , they probably will. I'm just stuck on how to calculate a node when you have two nodes going into it like on the CPA on the case study for Node D what figure do I take?
    Also the same for Node J when working backwards how do I figure out the LFT?
    Thanks very much for any replies
