A frantic call is made to 911 by a passenger inside an out-of-control vehicle. The mechanics had failed. Eventually, the vehicle, driven by an off-duty California Highway Patrolman, careened off the highway at 120 miles an hour. All its occupants perished. This was the 2009, the first time the unintended acceleration issue in Toyota vehicles garnered national attention in the United States. But, Toyota is a multi-national company. This incident cannot be isolated. Turns out, it was not. The problem had surfaced in Toyota’s vehicles in Europe in 2008 from instances of uncontrolled acceleration. In early 2009, the company gave European Toyota distributors information about the sticky pedals along with instructions to replace them if customers complained.

Group Decision Support System, or GDSS, is “an interactive, computer- based system that helps a team of decision-makers solve problems and make choices. GDSS are targeted to supporting groups in analyzing problem situations and in performing group decision-making tasks” (Power 2005). Group Decision Support Systems are designed to help groups in meetings reach a consensus. “The fundamental goal of a GDSS is to support collaborative work activities such as idea creation, message exchange, project planning, document preparation, mutual product creation and joint planning and decision making”(Steinfeld, 1990, p. 174)
The importance is to develop the creativity and innovation. Furthermore, it helps the employees to adapt with the change to create new projects (International Journal of Advanced Information Technology,
Working in a group can be a very challenging task. However if everyone in the group has the same end goal it can also be quite easy. Though group projects can be easy, they can quickly become stressful when things get hard. Whether it is decision making, conflicts, scheduling conflicts or overall participation conflicts, there will always be adversities that arise within a group and their project. Therefore, given my recent experience with my group, I can definitely state that group projects have their difficulties but if everyone is willing to make an effort to be engaged, the experience can be great exposure to valuable lifelong skills.

Being user friendly, the IS analysts thought that user compliance would boost the usage of the product. Much to the IS analyst’s dismay, surveys concluded that the program had small differences with usage. This problem was due to the socio-economic factors within the company which caused the sales representatives chosen to operate the system to shun the system. These excuses were due to disincentives such a lack pay bonus or reward for using the system, and being obtrusive toward their responsibilities. As sales representatives, they made excuses such as the system being “dirty work” for the manufacturers. Behind the excuses, the process of using the system was sub optimized by the sales representative’s subprocess within the company which was optimized for efficiency. Unfortunately, the IS analysts in charge of the project were not in a position to make changes regarding who used their system. Communication issues between the creators of the product and the managers who employed the product caused this
Introduction of the three programs being suggested will require an examination of the systems development life cycle. Haag, Cummings, and McCubbrey (pg 6-7, 2005) separate the life cycle into seven separate sections: planning, analysis, design, development, testing, implementation, and maintenance. The first piece of the systems development life cycle (SDLC), planning, requires the analysis of the projected idea's impact on the business. Haag, Cummings, and McCubbrey (pg 12, 2005) point out that the planning phase of the SDLC "focuses on either solving a problem or taking advantage of an opportunity." The next section of the SDLC is the analysis, which allows project managers to criticize the milestones established in the planning phase. In other words, the operations of each of the three projects must be judged on each project's accuracy, including the design, for long-term functionality.

There are diverse benefits for dividing the line. One main reason was employee motivation. At Toyota, every employee not only has the capability to stop the line, but must do so if there is a difficulty he cannot resolve within one cycle time. However, in a long line, this means causing inconvenience to many other employees, not all of whom the employee has a common relation with. Hence, there is a feeling of fault due to disrupt other people’s task, and hence a hesitation to end the line.
