This was reflected by our dedication to consistently advance in all product design fields, market . An initial focus on developing R&D and brand-specific components (in years 7 and 8) and later a transition to core-component improvement (years 9-11) outlined the product design approach. From years 7-8, dedication to new product R&D reached its highest peak. In each of the 2 years, $9 million was dedicated to
B Company 's Performance Targets The company ended in the last place, and we know that there are areas of opportunities. In spite of this, out of the five performance areas, our weighted average scores were above the investor expected standards for Y2015.

They had a profit of 4,339,987 while we only had a profit of 3,949,209. A part of the reason why our net income didn’t meet our forecasts and profit before taxes fell short of Bikes’R’Us is due to
In the article Drone On, Gretchen West addresses the possibilities for drones and her issues with FAA and the slow pace their taking to establish rules for drone operating. She begins with the history of drones. She discusses that drones were primarily use for the military and other government sectors like Homeland Security, until private companies started developing an interest in drones. Instead of helping in wars and watching our boarders, drones were now being used for farming and bridge inspection. Now drones are an international and multibillion dollar industry. Drones, are as a faster and safer way to do things like helping farmers with their crops or help filmmakers shoot amazing footage; drones will benefit everyone. Commercial drones
Strategy: Life through the Lens focuses on producing a quality product at a reasonable price for both our entry-level and multi featured cameras. In order to ensure our cameras are of the highest quality we spend large amounts of money on R&D every year; having spent $4 million on multi-featured camera R&D in year 12 alone. For our workers, we pay them a yearly wage of $21,091 with a 1% raise minimum every year (reaching $21,302 in year 13). They also receive a $2.00 bonus per unit in order to reduce warranty claims, and keep both worker and customer satisfaction high. We’ve had a positive affect from our incentive bonuses given out because our warranty claims have decreased. To ensure workers are on time and are working to full capacity, we reward PAT members with $45 per quarter bonus for perfect attendance. We also seek to maintain a positive public image through “going green” with our products and production line, having spent $2 million on “green initiatives” in year 12. We’ve won the Gold Star Award two years in a row for corporate citizenship due to our large charitable contributions

Our competitive intelligence reports indicate that during Year 6 our company was offering the highest quality AC Cameras as well as UAV Drones, however our products were also the highest priced across the market. These reports also show that during the first year only one of our competitors (Group G) invested a great deal into sales promotions and advertising for the AC Camera segment. In retrospect this could very likely be one of the reasons why or how our competitors gained so much of the market share so quickly. As for the UAV Drone segment, all of the team's invested approximately around the same amount in search engine advertising and retailer discounts.

In 2002, Leitax had suffered through poor planning of 3 camera models: the launch of one camera delayed (cost: $19.5 million), another outsold its inventory (costs: $4.5million) and a third model reported sluggish sales ($2.5million).
