experience design principles
Experience Design Principles
  • Theme the Experience (Forum shops)
  • Harmonize Impressions with Positive Cues(O’Hare airport parking garage)
  • Eliminate Negative Cues(Cinemark talking trash containers)
  • Mix in Memorabilia (Hard Rock T-shirts)
  • Engage all Five Senses (Mist in Rainforest)

discussion topics
Discussion Topics
  • Describe the work that you do from a service perspective
  • Illustrate how the type of work you do influences a person’s lifestyle.
quiz question
Quiz Question
  • Name the top 10 USA companies by revenue in 2006
  • How many would you describe as service companies?
data envelopment analysis dea
Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA)
  • Method for evaluating efficiency of similar venues/products
  • Incorporates inputs and outputs – not just one dimensional
sample lp product mix problem
Sample LP: Product Mix Problem
  • How much beer and ale to produce from three scarce resources:
    • 480 pounds of corn
    • 160 ounces of hops
    • 1190 pounds of malt
  • A barrel of ale consumes 5 pounds of corn, 4 ounces of hops, 35 pounds of malt
  • A barrel of beer consumes 15 pounds of corn, 4 ounces of hops and 20 pounds of malt
  • Profits are $13 per barrel of ale, $23 for beer

dea summary of terms
DEA summary of terms
  • Define variables
    • E_k = efficiency of unit k
    • u_j= coefficient for output j (relative decrease in efficiency per unit reduction of output value)
    • v_i = coefficient for input i (relative increase in efficiency per unit decrease of input value)
    • O_jk = observed ouput j units generated by service unit k during one time period
    • I_ik = no. units input used by service unit k during one period
  • Note:
    • k=1..K = service unit counter
    • j=1..M = output counter
    • i=1..N = input counter
