Q1: Define "direct materials" and "indirect materials". List reasons for a large company having two separate departments to manage the purchasing of each.
Direct materials are those materials that become part of the finished product in a manufacturing process. Steel manufacturers, for example, consider the iron that brought to be direct materials. The process for direct materials is an important part of any manufacturing business because the cost of direct materials is usually cost very expensive then indirect materials.
Indirect materials are all other materials that the company purchases, including factory supplies such as sand paper, hand tools and replacement parts of manufacturing machinery. Indirect materials items are often called maintenance, repair and operating supplies.
Large companies usually purchasing direct and indirect materials to separate departments. This is primarily because the procurement process differs significantly.
- Most companies include the purchase of non manufacturing goods and services, such as office supplies, computer hardware and software and travel expenses.
- Many vendors that manufacture general industrial merchandise and standard machine tools for a variety of industries have created Web sites through which their customers can purchase materials.
-The more money they can put into the business, which will allow better flexibility and more potential for growth. It also means more potential profit, which will be equally shared between the partners.
-They are less strictly regulated than companies, in terms of the laws governing the formation and because the partners have the only say in the way the business is run (without interference by shareholders) they are far more flexible in terms of management, as long as all the partners can agree.
-Partners share the decision making and can help each other out when they need to. More partners mean more brains that can be picked for business ideas and for the solving of problems that the business encounters.
As a conclusion, there are several advantages and disadvantages of partnership in terms of a business undertaking. Every team must have a good working knowledge of the law and the current advantages of partnership over the other legal forms of business in order to run a success business.
These industries use it for security use, tracking, detecting distant objects and determining their position, track weather formations, wind speed etc.

Introduction:A quick introduction about the company.
(History/What they do? What type of business they do? etc.)
KFC began with Colonel Harland Sanders. He discovered his penchant for cooking when he was only 9 years old. Through the years he grew up to become a personage the world knows as Colonel Sanders, founder of KFC.
Success did not come easy, however, as at the tender age of six, after his father's death, he was responsible for taking care of his younger siblings by cooking for them while his mother joined the workforce in order to support the family. It was through those years that Sanders discovered his passion for cooking.
In 1930, at the age of 40, Sanders owned a service station in Corbin, Kentucky. But since he loved to cook, he began preparing dishes to patrons that stopped by for petrol; serving them from his own dining table in his modest living quarters.
By 1935, his contribution to the state's cuisine reached a high-point as Governor Ruby Laffoon made him a member of the Honourable Order of Kentucky Colonels. More and more people started coming strictly for his food as he has perfected his secret blend fo 11 herbs and spices and the basic cooking technique that is still used today.
Sanders reached celebrity status in 1952, when he decided to franchise his famous Kentucky Fried Chicken recipe to the rest of America. By the early 90's, that special recipe reached Brunei.
Today, KFC Brunei continues to serve finger lickin' good, succulent pieces of chicken. The flavourful blends of 11 herbs and spices provide for KFC's delicious aroma. With the chicken's natural juices sealed-in, leaving a special mouth watering taste that cannot be replaced, KFC prides itself as a fast-food restaurant that gives customers great tasting chicken with a selection of home-styled side dishes and desserts to make a wholesome, complete and satisfying meal.
The first KFC branch to open in Brunei was in 1992 at Plaza Athirah. This particular branch to this day is still one of the most popular KFC outlets in the whole of Brunei.
What does the company do well?
Is the company strong in its market?
KFC is the largest fast-food chain in Malaysia and Brunei, serving world famous Original Recipe fried chicken which contains secret blend of 11 herbs and spices. Apart from serving finger-licking good food, we continuously aim for high quality and are committed to ensure food safety by stringent control to maintain our standards.
They cook our products well above the minimum temperature recommended by WHO. They have developed standard procedure that would minimize risk of cross contamination between raw and ready-to-eat products.
They also provide information on the nutritional values of KFC products to assist their customers in planning a wholesome and balanced meal. For frying all of their products, they use non-hydrogenated palm oil that contains insignificant amount of trans fat and it is 100% cholesterol free.
They have a team of food technologists constantly experimenting with new flavors and creative concepts to provide more value, choices and healthy options for their customers. Apart from introducing international products into their market, they have also developed some popular local flavors designed to enable their customers to enjoy an exciting dining experience.
Their daily operations manual clearly highlights each step of the sanitation procedure to ensure strict compliance to the KFC requirement. Each staff has to undergo the Food Handler’s Course conducted internally by KFC which is recognized by the Ministry of Health.
They have implemented a handwashing procedure to ensure each staff washes his/her hands at least once every hour and whenever necessary. The procedures include wetting hands first, then rubbing the hands together, fingers between fingers, around the wrist and up to the elbow with liquid antibacterial handsoap, for 30 seconds. Then the hands are rinsed with clean water under the hands-free tap, and dried with single-use paper towels.
No bare hands are allowed to touch any finished products. Instead, they constantly stress on the importance of using disposable gloves, sanitized scoops or tongs.
What does the company do poorly?
What problems could be avoided?
When its comes for delivery, KFC only delivers to limited areas that is around Sengkurong and Berakas.
They should expand the area for delivery.
As conclusion, KFC are the best place to eat because it taste so good.
