Companies all over the globe will experience some sales and profit decrease. Home Depot in the growing housing industry benefited greatly from the houses being built. The accounting concept portrayed in this situation for home depot is called operating leverage. Operation leverage is when managers view a small change in revenue and magnify it to dramatic changes in revenue (Edmonds, Tsay, & Olds, 2011). With a decrease in the market for construction materials, Home Depot is experiencing a 3% decrease revenue and a 21% decrease in profitability. This drastic change occurred because of variable and fixed costs. Due to these costs, sales decline in small percentages which affect a more significant decline in profit.

JetBlue’s operations strategy is evident from its choice of location from which they operate since location setup is one of the most important strategic decisions in operations management. They placed their main operations headquarter in the New York City, a city with the population of almost 19 million people (jetBlue, 2013). This fact alone helps them to fly their airlines in their full capacity almost all the time which ensures their business profitability. Their choice of locations fulfills the first and foremost part of the operations management, demand and competition location. It is easily understandable that it is a good practice to choose location of an organization where the product or service they are giving will have demand and will have enough population to maintain the level of demand. For example, if an airline company establishes its base in a place where population is low and economic activities are slow and almost non-existent. It will face two-fold problems in achieving its business objective. One is that there will not be enough passengers at any given time to fly their airlines in full capacity, and another one is that poor economic activities will render most of that meager population unable to bear the minimum

The value chain shown below describes all the activities involved in air travel. Airports serve as a gateway to aviation and hence are a key link in the air transport value chain. They play a vital role in facilitating tourism and business travel and global supply chains as well. For inbound travelers, an airport contributes to their first impression of a city or country, and for outbound travel, particularly on short-haul journeys, passengers may spend as much, or even more, time at the airport as they do in the air.

This invention was the start of the Jet Age.
