  •                     Thomas de Jesus - Final Presentation - Professor Lejla Tricic English 206 - Technical Communication April 23rd, 2009
  • Transcript

    • 1. Transitioning for A Better Tomorrow
      Replacing Disposable Compressed Air Products with Eco-Friendly Alternatives
    • 2. Introduction
      Our company was established in 1995
      Top provider of computer services in U.S.A.
      We provide on-site and depot based services
      Customers from residential to commercial
      • We provide services to major corps
      • 3. Chase Bank
      • 4. Alamo Car Rental
      • 5. K-Mart Corporation
      • 6. Many others enjoy our support services.
    • A Necessary Step
      • Dust and dirt removal required upon service completion.
      • 7. Dust causes heat insulation and damage to electrical circuitry
      • 8. Dust “grabs” components and circuitry.
      Technician uses Disposable Compressed Air to remove dust.
      Dust removal with compressed air only 80% effective.
    • 9. Problem with Process
      Technician discards empty can into garbage.
      104 Cans are used by each tech every year.
      104 Cans X 90 Tech = 9,360 Cans
      9,360 cans sent to landfill by our company.
      Aluminum decomposition time = 200 to 500 years (Lawhorn 2008).
    • 10. Problem with Process (Cont’d)
      Compressed air products contain harmful chemicals and are not accepted by most recycling centers.
    • 11. An Alternative to Self-Destruction
      WD-40 Turbo Air Blower
      Re-chargeable and re-usable air powered cleaning system
      Capable of 30 MPH continuous blast of air.
      Sold with delicate brush attachment and concentrated blast nozzle.
      Three-Year Product Guarantee.
    • 12. Our Financial Impacts
      Current Supply Costs
      Each tech uses 104 cans of air. (Per Yr.)
      90 techs x 104 cans (Per Yr.) = 9,360 Cans (per year)
      Average cost per can = $6.65 Each
      9,360 Cans X $6.65 = $62,244 Per Year (Compressed Air Supply Cost)
      Three Year Supply Cost = $186,732
    • 13. Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)
      Projected Supply Costs
      Each tech utilizes one reusable air device.
      One blower unit per tech. (90 Units)
      Unit Retail Cost = $29.99 Each
      90 units X $29.99 = $2,699.10 (Three Yr Cost)
      One Year Supply Savings = $62,244
    • 14. Our Financial Impacts (Cont.)
      Current and Projected Supply Costs
      Three Year Supply Savings = $184,032.90
    • 15. Our Contribution to Earth
      9,360 Cans diverted from landfills!
      9,360 Cans containing traces of harmful chemicals are kept from landfills each year.
    • 16. No Time to Waste!
      Approval Today…
      …Results Tomorrow!
      The Time to Act is NOW!
