Off-the-shelf software is cheaper than developing custom software. Conversely, due to Boeing’s massive scope and size, outsourcing certain elements would be inefficient. Outsourcing payroll or sales force management with 158,000 employees in 70 countries would be an extremely difficult, let alone expensive, task. Processes like payroll and sales force management often require much human interaction in order to work properly, so outsourcing these elements could create major roadblocks for employees and employers alike. On the other hand, why would Boeing develop in-house some of the software applications used in conjunction with its products?

Another threat of substitute could be companies hiring in house people to save costs, in which case they will have to compete with them in terms of attracting talent as well.

Case Analysis - 3 Achieving Success in Virtual Teams Overview: In today's competitive world, companies are gradually vacating their cubicles and enter into the virtual workforce to increase work efficiency, reduce cost and resolve organizational problems (Ahmed & Ebrahim, 2009). Nowadays, companies are investing a bulk amount of money on virtual teams to enhance their performance since it has become an indispensable prerequisite for companies to stay in competitive in the era of globalization (Ahmed & Ebrahim, 2009). Virtual teams consist of members from different cultural backgrounds who work in various organizations with different set of standards and members of the virtual teams have the least probability to meet in person (Nelson & Quick, 2013, p. 348). The greater percentages (approximately 90%) of people are responsible for both success and failure of the virtual teams whereas technology plays only 10% role (Nelson & Quick, 2013, p. 348). Communication effectiveness and stimulating work are considered two essential human factors in terms of shaping the success and failure of virtual teams (Nelson & Quick, 2013, p. 348).
Burden cost in test rooms would be charged based on Machine Hours. Tech/Admin pool would be charged at direct labor hours The existing system failed because there was only one rate being used to calculate overhead, and this rate was solely based on direct labor hours. Some products require much more machine hours then direct labor hours. As you can see from the different breakdowns the machine hours are very costly, and as we automate things even further the overhead will not be assigned correctly. Something that requires much more machine hours will appear to have a lower cost, when in fact it could be costing the company a great deal more.
Organizations can implement training programs with the help of new technology that allows them to train multiple employees instead of hiring expensive trainers. Employee training is one of the most expensive costs that organizations incur. Making use of advances in technology allows organizations to decrease the amount of money they are spending for training and train a larger amount of employees using the same training materials. The consumer demand for new technology and services keeps growing, and those businesses who do not keep up with the demand will find themselves at a disadvantage over their competitors. One of the major benefits from technological advances, allows employees to learn at their own pace through self-directed learning programs (Noe, R., 2010, p. 266).
