Component 3

Task 1

Once our idea is better developed and improved, we have to start thinking about what the work force would be to market our product. As there are already many kinds of CO2 reducing products out on the market, we would have to have a large amount of people on the work force. A number estimate might be about 1,500 to 2,000 people to start with. This would, of course, increase over a five-year period. If the product is successfully marketed, then depending on the product’s reliability, there may be a supply and demand issue. It may cause other, smaller companies to be put out of business, or cause a large amount of competition between our product and other currently existing products. There are still improvements to be made to our idea and product to ensure that it would be safe and reliable for the consumer.

Over a five-year period, depending on whether our product is widely accepted and used or not, we would need to hire large amounts of workers for the assembly line and shipping to stores. Starting with the 1,500 to 2,000 workers previously mentioned, we would have to increase depending on supply and demand. As the product is mass marketed we would need to increase production on the assembly line. The number of workers might heighten to about 4 or 5,000 people at the end of the five-year period. Yet, this is still an estimate.
