Business management teams are often asked to solve problems. Now then let us do a case study here. Lets say that a Corporation owns lots of assets in the Bahamas and needs to pressure wash them, but it has to spend money to import a pressure washer unit and once it gets there use it to clean their properties and assets. Well, should that unit be run full time cleaning up everything on the island as a division of the company to pay for the pressurewashing unit? There is demand.
Okay so they decide to go for it. Now then what type of unit should they use? Remember it has to be imported. Vehicles imported are driven on and off the cargo ships. Indeed perhaps you are of how these vehicles are shipped, most all cars for that matter. Next we find out that there is a 21-foot requirement for commercial service vehicles of this type and that law seemed out of place. But it is the law. Of course all different nations have different rules and often know one knows why these rules are or who started them? Out of curiosity why does the Bahamas have that rule in the commercial vehicle codes?
Should we get a truck and mount the equipment on a truck? What if we want to drop the unit off to work all day and pick up the crew later on? Well you know you do not have to put the unit on a truck, you could put it onto a trailer? A 16-18 foot car hauler trailer might work, with the equipment on top? Next one of the management team asks the obvious question; Is there a commercial vehicle code length for truck/trailer combinations? Here is a picture of what a trailer unit might look like.
Should the unit for pressure washing be hot water or cold water? Well, hot water to clean concrete and such, but something could be cleaned with cold water too. Perhaps a cold water trailer unit could be purchased from; Detailers in Los Angeles? Well yes but that ads $1,000 to the shipping costs to transport it by truck to Miami or Jacksonville to ship to the Bahamas? http://www.DeTrailers.com . Another manager states in our research we found that there are trailer makers for cold water units in Florida? Closer, easy to ship out of Jacksonville or Miami and there is a vendor in NY who could build it and ship it out. If you had smaller units you could tow them to jobs sites and leave them to work; one executive states.
You see when executive management teams get together to get something done they must be thinking of all possibilities, make a decision, which makes sense and then make it happen. I hope this insight and case study will help you in making better decisions and attacking problems by encircling them and then zeroing in on the target and then pulling the trigger for a perfect execution of the project every time. Consider all this in 2006.
