Automakers rethink ‘just-in-time’ parts supplies as crises put production at risk

Automakers rethink ‘just-in-time’ parts supplies as crises put production at risk | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it
DETROIT — For the first time in more than 20 years, U.S. automakers are questioning a pillar of manufacturing: The practice of bringing parts to assembly lines right before they’re used.

 

What are the economic advantages to 'just-in-time' manufacturing?  What are some of the weaknesses that are a part of these transnational supply chains?  Is this the end of that economic model?  Why or Why not?  This article is a great reading for understanding industry and economic development .

McDonald's finally caves: All-day breakfast is coming nationwide this fall

McDonald's finally caves: All-day breakfast is coming nationwide this fall | INTRODUCTION TO THE SOCIAL SCIENCES DIGITAL TEXTBOOK(PSYCHOLOGY-ECONOMICS-SOCIOLOGY):MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"If there's one thing McDonald's customers have been begging for it's all-day breakfast. The fast-food giant teased people earlier this year by testing the concept at select locations in California ..."

Lauren Heath's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:00 PM

Mcdonald's is now going to serve breakfast all day starting October 6th. They had been testing this out in certain parts of California. Many customers are very excited for this. This affects me because I enjoy McDonald's breakfast more than the regular lunch/dinner foods. I will like being able to have hash browns when ever I want. I agree with this because sometimes people are hungry for breakfasts at later times of day.  

Courtney Evans's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:01 PM

McDonald's is starting to serve breakfast all day long. No longer will we have to rush to get breakfast. 

I won't have to wake up as early to get breakfast, but more  people will be eating the unhealthy food all the time, even though they do that already. 

I agree with this because not all people make it to McDonald's in time for breakfast. Now everyone will have time to eat.

Evan Richardson's curator insight, September 9, 2015 1:03 PM

McDonalds will start serving all day breakfast starting October 6th. They started testing this idea out in select locations in California earlier this month. Now the idea will roll out nationwide. This affects me because now I can get McDonalds breakfast anytime I want.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 13, 9:55 AM

The languages we speak shape our ideas, communications, and to some extent, the possibilities open to us.  There are many ideas that I used to be able to express better in Spanish than I could in English (even though English is my first language, some Spanish words seem to capture the essence of my emotions in a more enriching and satistfying than in English). If you want to try any of these out for Valentine's Day, be my guest, but if it get's you in trouble, it's not my fault!
