Stock Returns and Economic, Non-Economic, and Financial indicators in the Healthcare Industry
I would investigate the relationship between stock returns and indicators by multifactor models. I would also explore the stock returns of the top ten companies in the healthcare industry by MGARCH models.
The problem to investigate is the asymmetry of stock returns or stock volatility and the effect of financial statements on stock volatility.

Definition: 
The definition of preventive maintenance is as follows “Proactive approach; reducing breakdowns through a program of lubrication, adjustment, cleaning inspection, and replacement of worn parts” (Stevenson, 2021). 
Summary: 
In the article, Linear and Nonlinear Preventive Maintenance Models, the authors Wu and Zuo discuss the importance of the preventive maintenance model and how it improves the lifetime of equipment. “A better maintenance decreases the hazard rate and/or virtual age of a system, whereas a worse one increases them, or even brings the system to fail or break down” (Wu, & Zuo, 2010). The authors agree that there are three different types of preventive maintenance models and these are called perfect, minimal, and imperfect. It is up to management as to which one they would like to use in their company. A perfect system is when the machinery is restored to what it was when it was brand new. The minimal model is to keep the machinery going until a full maintenance can be done on it. The imperfect model basically does no preventive maintenance and allows the machinery to run until there is an issue. 
Discussion:
This article relates to the textbook because it shows different ways that companies can use preventive maintenance to cut down cost and to keep the machines running longer. “An item is replaced either on failure or on the predetermined replacement time, whichever comes first” (Cha, Finkelstein, & Levitin, 2017). This process has to be timed out to get the full benefits of extending the lifetime on the machines. Without the timing process, it will be hard to know when the machine needed the tune up and it would be hard to track who would do it. This system is always changing and it is important to keep up with it.

The authors of this article explain the importance of making a schedule for preventive maintenance. The first step is to figure out which plan would work for the specific company. The next step is to decide how often the machines will go under maintenance. This is important to understand and create because it allows the machine life to be extended and will save the company money.

The authors of this article describe the different types of methods that can be used for preventive maintenance. This article shows the two different types of preventive measures such as the time-scale and the shock process.

The authors of this article describe how preventive maintenance helps to reduce the probability of breakdowns and failure. When a company invests in this program it has all sorts of benefits that can save the company more money. The more that a company can save, the more they can invest in other things to advance their production.

Hi all,
I’m working on a paper and need help.  Below is the Prompt–
 Prompt: To complete this milestone, you will submit a case analysis of your selected organization or company. In your submission, assess and describe your  organization’s or company’s internal organization capabilities and recommend strategies for optimizing production based on a detailed analysis of existing  processes, resources (facilities, human resources, equipment/machines, supply chain/inventory), sustainability, and strategic business planning (SBP) goals. In this analysis, you will need to identify and recommend TQM and ISO 9000 principles and methods that utilize best business practices to ensure that the  company is consistently meeting the customers’ cost, quality, performance, and overall satisfaction expectations. 
This analysis will necessarily include the use of  global benchmarks to determine opportunities for competitive advantage. Additionally, assess the company’s current capacity and constraints in meeting  production goals or delivery of service. How does it manage its restraints? To begin this process, you will need to gather information about the organization’s or company’s current initiatives and processes, general policies, and stated  goals. Information can generally be found on the organization’s main website, in the annual report and mission statement, and in articles authored by the  company or outside analysts, such as ThomasNet.com, buy/sell sites (e.g., Jim Cramer), and investment companies (e.g., Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, or Vanguard). As operations management students and professionals, you are encouraged to use your own experience, understanding, and knowledge of business and  industry structure to drive your analysis.  Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed: 
I. Aligning Resources to Market Opportunities
 A. Assess your company’s or organization’s internal capabilities and limitations with respect to its current operations. In your assessment, include  human, organizational, and infrastructure factors. B. Based on the company’s or organization’s internal capabilities and limitations, what expansion or business development opportunities can you  identify? How will these opportunities align to the current domestic and global markets? Your response should consider the political, economic,  social, and technical factors that affect the company. C. Based on the company’s or organization’s internal capabilities and limitations, what cost-savings opportunities can you identify? How will these  opportunities align to the current domestic and global markets? Your response should consider the political, economic, social, and technical  factors that affect the company. D. Describe the external threat factors in the domestic and global markets that the company or organization should consider when developing  these business development and cost-savings opportunities. Your response should consider the political, economic, social, and technical factors  that affect the company. 
II. Managing the Quality Imperative for Global Competition A. Based on your assessment of the company’s or organization’s internal capabilities and limitations and the opportunities you identified, select  total quality management (TQM) means that the company or organization could employ to strengthen organizational performance. Justify your selection. B. Based on your assessment of the company’s or organization’s internal capabilities and limitations and the opportunities you identified, select an  appropriate series from an ISO 9000 family of standards that the company or organization could employ to strengthen organizational  performance. Justify your selection. C. Based on the TQM and ISO 9000 benchmarks that you selected, recommend global best practices that strengthen organizational performance by  ensuring quality, cost containment, and customer satisfaction for the company or organization. Justify your recommendations. 
This analysis will be incorporated into the final project submission.  Guidelines for Submission: This assignment should be submitted as a 5- to 7-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman  font, and one-inch margins. You should use current APA style guidelines for your citations and reference list,
