Many times, the strength of an establishment is not fully realized until it has proven its ability to overcome a setback and become better for it. Chicago is a primary example of a city which proved its strength by undergoing disaster, and becoming better for it. Perhaps the most jarring of these disasters was the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, symbolized by the second of four stars on the Chicago flag. This tragedy, claiming the lives of hundreds and causing millions of dollars in damage, was horrid, but the city overcame and grew to be one of America’s most influential cities. A crucial element of Chicago’s history, the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 can be understood by studying the cause of its severity, its impact on the city, and the recovery efforts of the people.

For example, when Japan Aircraft Development Company (JADC) claimed that there could be problems while transporting body sections from Japan to Seattle, Boeing insisted to scale models of all sections and carry out a trial transportation. This trial showed that they needed to alter the plan as Japan’s roads were narrow and the parts were too big. Thus, an old steel factory closer to the shipping facilities was converted to an assembly hub of JADC. Boeing went through a major exercise to ensure that supply chain management will go as planned and that all problems be tackled before the actual execution. The learning curves along with evaluation of each activity in all angles ensured that the schedule is realistic and changes can be incorporated, as and when

They may be positive or negative; but because they are unexpected there are unlikely to be mitigation measures in place to deal with them (Lawrence, 2003). The follow-up process therefore needs to be adaptive enough to cope with this The purpose of an EIA is to present information, so that it can inform the decision-making process (Canter, 1996).

Aristotle insisted that the order of priority may decide whether one’s goal should be considered as a means or the goal itself.
