Energy release in large volumes of energy with the emission of high temperatures and gases can create an explosion. This release is done in an extreme manner in order to obtain a higher explosion. The explosion can be classified into the supersonic explosion and subsonic explosion. Supersonic explosions are caused by higher explosives also known as detonations while subsonic explosions are caused by low explosives due to a slower burning process called deflagration. An explosion can also be natural or artificial. Common artificial explosions are caused by chemicals, which are a result of rapid and violent oxidation reaction, which produces a large amount of very hot gas.
In my description of the explosion concept as a luggage manufacturer, I would include aspects that help in the detection of this explosive while in transit using any of my products. First, I would explore various ways of manufacturing luggage fabric that is not compatible with the explosive chemicals. If for example, a customer is carrying aerosols, liquids, or gel of any kind in a bag that is to be inspected then the luggage can be easily detected by detection machines used at various transport terminals like airport and train stations. This will help reduce the usage of luggage in acts of terrorism causing havoc.
Secondly, I would standardize my luggage in a way that it is easy to tell in case it is tempered with. This would help a lot in the security departments at various inlets and outlets to detect and hold luggage that has been altered, and therefore enhance their security check process. Standard fabric and design go a long way in helping to define the company’s goods, hence our customers will be conversant with our merchandise.
Capacity management can be defined as work processes in which are associated with the provision and management of Information Technology resources like servers, printers, and telecommunication devices that are employed to support the day-to-day business process in a way that minimizes the cost incurred by the business (Grummitt, 2009). The work processes include monitoring, reporting, planning, and predictive modeling. A business entity that uses Information Technology resources should be able to properly manage its systems to avoid losses in terms of income spent and to avoid loss of data (Hyer, 2002).
Input/output control plays a vital function in ensuring cost minimization. It helps in ensuring that only the required information is fed into the computer system in order to reduce unnecessary output. Input and output control is used in conjunction with control planning (Hyer, 2002). They will help in the objectivity of the business processes and ensure there is no unnecessary jam created in the data management process. It is also important to control data stored in the system, as it is prone to many threats and a business may incur a lot of money trying to secure this information, hence, if the data is unnecessary, then the loss to the business will be for no income gain (Hyer, 2002).
Input and output control is done by a business by analyzing the long-term goals and short-term goals (Grummitt, 2009). Identifying long-term goals will help in determining the amount of data the Information technology system will hold, which is presumed to be high-density data while short-term goals of the business may hold fewer data in the system. This approach thus becomes vital to the capacity management process since it determines even the cost to be incurred by a business entity (Grummitt, 2009).
