Thesis on Time Value of Money for SMU MB0029 Assignment

a) “Write a short note on time value of money.”

b) Mr. Ram Prasad deposit Rs. 10, 000 at the end of evry year for 5 years into his deposit account for 5 years. It earns a compound interest of 8% per annum.

1) Find out the amount of the end of the five years.

2) In case the interest is accrued for every half year, find out the sum of the end of the period.

3) What is the difference if he deposit Rs. 10,000 at the beginning of every year and the interest is compound half yearly?

Answer – a) Time value of money is the value of a unit of money at different time intervals. The value of money received today is more than its value received at a later date. In other words, the value of money changes over a period of time since a rupee received today has more value; rational investors would prefer current receipts to future receipts. That is why this phenomenon is also referred to as “Time preference of money”/ Some times it occurred as time value of money.

b) = 10000 FVIFA (8%, 5y)
= 10000 x 11.734
=117340

1) 117340
2) 157340
3) 4000

c) Mr. Arvind desires to purchase 10 bonds whose face value of each bond being Rs. 10,000 and the maturity period being five years. The nominal rate of interest is 9% and the required rate of return is 13% what is the price should be willing to pay how to purchase the bonds?

Answer – c) Interest payable 1000 x 9% = Rs. 90
Principal repayment is Rs. 1000
Required rate of return is 13%

VO = 1 x PVIFA (kd, n) + F x PVIF (kd, n)
Value of the bond = 90 x PVIFA (13%, 5y) + 1000 x PVIF (13%, 5y)
= 80 x 3.791 + 1000 x 0.621
=303.28 + 621
=Rs. 924.28

b) VO = 1 x PVIFA (KD, n) + F x PVIF (kd, n)

Management Accounting Review for SMU MBA

I have to share an accounting concept for management. This is the review for SMU MBA students by financial management MBA book. It is for those students who are busy in preparing their MBA by SMU. Below is review by management accounting blog:

“Management accounting is not only for the record keeping but also it has broader aspects. The managers use the financial statements as resources to make decision in the field of accounting. About the management accounting we can take a look from MBA book of SMU, “Management accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, accumulating, analyzing, preparing, interpreting and communicating information that helps managers to fulfill organizational objectives.”

Here with the definition of management accounting we can say it is for the fulfill of organization objectives by the managers to use all the financial statements and resources.

Objectives of Management Accounting:

Scope of management accounting

Need for financial statements analysis and inter-firm comparisons

Relevance of cost analysis – overhead analysis, job cost analysis and process cost analysis

Relevance of marginal cost and C.V.P. analysis for short-run decision-making

We should know that all the management process single and most upper goal is decision making. So, decision-making is known as the nucleus of management process. Here we will look a chart to understand of decision-making process:

decision-making process

Meaning and Scope of Management Accounting:

About the meaning of management accounting Charles T. Horgren writes, “Management accounting is the process of identifying, measuring, accumulating, analyzing, preparing, interpreting and communicating information that helps managers to fulfill organizations objectives.”

As I have already mentioned that management accounting is not only the process of keeping records. Records keeping is the process of data accumulation however management accounting is the decision making process. So, the management accounting scope has broader then financial statements and record keeping.

About the evaluation of management accounting the history says that it comes with the industrial revolution from the 18th century. Management accounting is the results of capitalist system.

Management accounting has been divided into four parts – book keeping, financial accounting, accounting and cost accounting and social responsibility accounting.

Like this management accounting has one more main part that is MIS (Management Information Systems). MIS for management accounting is most important process because it collects data and gives the right way to analysis that data to take good decisions by managers.

At last we can give some facts which are necessary in functions of management accounting:

Formulation of a business plan

Implementation of the plan

Designed to achieve the goals of the plan

Formulation of business plans

These are the main function of management accounting an organization. However, we have already discussed on the management accounting chapter. Now, I think I will cover some more facts in the next chapter of financial management accounting chapter.”

SMU MBA Assignment Question-2 from MB 0028 Book

I found a blog on the SMU MBA Assignment. You can find from the blog all types of MBA assignment of Sikkim Manipal University. I am going to publish one of the assignment questions from the MBA assignment blog.

Production and operations Management

Question 2. Sate the important consideration for locating an automobile plant? Collect information on layout planning of an automobile plant from various services and furnish the same.

Answer: To locate an automobile company or plant many thing should be consider. For an automobile plant automated flaw lines, automated assembly lines, flexible manufacturing systems, global transition rapid prototyping. Building manufacturing flexibility things are necessity.

About the automated flow lines we can say it is a machine which is linked by a transfer system which moves the parts by using handling machines which are also automated, we have an automated flow line.

Human intervention ma is needed to verify that the operations ate taking place according to standards. When these cab be achieved with the help of automation and the processes are conducted with self regulation, we will have automated flow lines established.

In fixed automation or hard automation, where one component is manufactured using services operations and machines it is possible to achieve this condition. We assume that product life cycles are sufficiently stable to interest heavily on the automate flow lines to achieve reduces cast per unit.

Product layouts ate designed so that the assembly tasks are performed in the sequence they are designed at each station continuously. The finished item came out at the end of the line.

In automated assembly lines the moving pallets move the materials from station to station and moving arms pick up parts, place them at specified place and system them by perusing, riveting, & crewing or even welding. Sensors will keep track of there activities and move the assembles to the next stage.

The machines are arranged in a sequence to perform operations according to the technical requirements.

The tools are loaded, movements are effected, speeds controlled automatically without the need for worker’s involvement.

The flexibility leads to better utilization of the equipments. It reduces the numbers of systems and rids in reduction of investment as well as a space needed to install them. One of the major cancers of modern manufacturing systems is to be able to respond to market
Demands which have uncertainties.

Prototyping is a process by which a new product is developed in small number so as to determine the suitability of the materials, study the various methods of manufactured, type of machinery required and develop techniques to over come problems that my be encountered when full scale manufacture is undertaken.

Prototypes do meet the specification of the component that enters a product and performance can be measured on these.

It helps in con be reforming the design and any shortcomings can be rectified at low cost.

Flexibility has three dimensions in the manufacturing field. They are variety, volume and time. There demands will have to be satisfied. In that sense they become constraints which restrict the maximization of productivity. Every business will have to meet the market demands of its various products in variety volumes of different time.

Flexibility is also needed to be able to develop new products or make improvements in the products fast enough to cater to shifting marker needs.

Manufacturing systems have flexibility built into them to enable organization meet global demand. You have understood how the latest trends in manufacturing when implemented help firms to stay a head in business.

Note: all the answer has been taken by SMU book of MB 0028 for this assignment.”
