I have attached an example revenue management from a previous essay on another term.

my task is to write a section based on revenue management techniques. based on the interview and using secondary sources in example. do not copy or plagiarism.

Here is the interview we did on a restaurant named Lift located in Atyrau in Kazhastan.

1) Each food/dish offer in the menu is calculated  to a grammage of each ingredient. Then we get a net cost of a dish. The selling price in average is a net cost increased by 200% to 300%. This added value includes all expenses like cooker and waiter salary + depreciation of equipment.
3)  Part of everyday revenue goes for procurement of everyday used products of kitchen and bar and for other needed stuff.
4)  Since we are considered as a small-sized business the tax is 3%
5)  Since we just closed our first year of operation there is only 1 fixes annual expense info (63.000.000 KZT). Profit is a confidential info.
6) Difference in revenue for a restaurant and bar depends on a period of a month and number of holiday on each month. Usually revenue decreases in the end of  a month cause people run out of money and they wait for a salary.
7) Its occupied for 60% on weekdays and over-occupied on weekends.
8) Special offers are only personal discount cards for our regular guests.
9) Majority of guests are mainly locals. And around 20% are expats who work in Kazakhstan.

Among the anticipated employees for the company in this new location will be workers who are over 50 years of age, employees with physical disabilities, pregnant women, and those of different racial and ethnicities.

Select and define three legal concepts or statutes which might be used as you develop these new employee policies for Amazon.

In Unit 1 we introduced business ethics and explored ethical theory. In Unit 2 we began our discussion as to laws which affect workers. In this first assignment, the focus is on the ethical theories from Unit 1.

Consider the following factual scenario which was faced by the Volkswagen Automaker:

A Volkswagen engineer was directed to create defeat device software to temporarily cheat on emissions tests by turning pollution controls on only when being inspected by regulators. The engineers moral consciousness did not originally object and an intention formed to do as directed. But assume that before acting on the intention, the VW engineer becomes aware that the U.S. government was taking a much tougher approach to corporate wrongdoing and a company was harshly punished recently for violating government environmental regulations. Because of the new inconsistency between anticipated and actual outcomes, the engineer begins to have second doubts about the intention.

Select and define three ethical theories. Distinguish the differences between each and explain how each might be used as you recommend a course of action to be taken by the Volkswagen engineer.

Your analysis as to each ethical theory should be one page in length.

Use and cite at one additional authoritative source for each ethical theory other than the text materials.
