We are playing as group on airline simulation games on interpretation simulations software we are running airlines company online our airline is blue oceans airlines it is a mid range airlines we need to run for 12 quarters for first 1 quarters our stock is 24 now its reduced to 9 on 5 th quarter .we start simulation on Monday and final day for this simulations is Thursday please keep visit the site for your more guidance you can change quarter from bottom to check what we have done on Monday and Tuesday and others day as you follow and check

Your Task
• This is an individual assignment drawing on your experiences and learning through participation in the Airline Simulation
• You will need to answer four questions. The word count is 600 words for each question. total words 2400
• For each question use theory and tools to help you consider the issue and the application of the concepts to the simulation. You can consider how you used the theory in making decisions during the game. You can also use theory as you look back to help you analyse and evaluate your industry or how your company fared.
• You can use this template just as it is: i.e. complete each page and submit the whole document.
• Following the simulation, you will submit this report which reviews various strategic tools from your MBA Toolkit and considers their application and usefulness in the Airline Simulation Game.

Question 1
In this simulation you chose a sector to operate in (budget, mid–range or luxury). What have you learned about these sectors as a result of your experience in this simulation? Reflecting on theory what did you do well and what would you have done differently at the beginning of the simulation and why? What would you have done differently to be more successful during the simulation and why?
Question 2
What were the KPI’s you used in running your airline? Did they change? Critically appraise the value of the information you had available to you in the results packs during the simulation. How did you use this to affect your decision making?
Question 3
Giving due consideration to theory, evaluate how a merger or acquisition might have changed your outcomes and the way you operated during the simulation? What additional implications would there have been for your company?
Question 4
Appraise how successful your company was in your industry. Was your relative success or failure due primarily to your analysis and diagnosis or the choices and decisions you made? Which models and theory did you consider when participating in the game? Evaluate how these helped you.
Criteria 70% and above 60-69% 50-59% 40-49% 35-39% 1-34%
Theory Excellent use of appropriate sources and scholarly, professional and practitioner details are consistently high. Material follows systematically with direct relevance to objectives Very good use of appropriate theory (ies) using published sources introduced /from the MBA toolkit Good use of theory (ies) using published sources./ from the MBA toolkit Some use of theory (ies) using published sources./ from the MBA toolkit Weak identification of appropriate theories and models. No attempt to use published sources. .
Analysis An insightful and critical analysis of the relevance of theory to the practice of running a business. An insightful and critical analysis overall but the linkages and rigour will not be as explicit as for an A grade. There will be some omissions with respect to the clarity of argument and some of the analysis will have less strong evidence of originality. Good evidence of critical analysis but no great originality or organisation. There may be gaps in issues concerning scope and relevance and some reference to strategic issues but perhaps not fully or explicitly set out. Some analysis evident, but gaps in the reasoning and limited critical evaluation. Overly descriptive
The assignment is based on assertions and uncertain evidence. Arguments are weak and cannot be sustained No evidence of analysis
Conclusions Excellent conclusions are fully derived from in-depth critical analysis, supported by evidence. Very good conclusions derived from critical analysis but less in-depth than for an A grade. Good conclusions mainly derived from analysis. Some conclusions identified, but more a summary/not entirely derived from the analysis.
.The conclusions cannot be justified A random collection of statements based on the students own point of view with little or no attempt to draw analysis to conclusions.
Reflection In-depth reflection through application of theory into practice leading to deep learning of how to improve There will be a clear reflective analysis on individual learning objectives There will be a generally clear reflective analysis on individual learning objectives. Limited reflective analysis on individual learning objectives. Little or no reflection No reflection
Presentation and Referencing Clearly and concisely structured, sourced throughout and with a comprehensive bibliography in Harvard format. Clearly and concisely structured, sourced throughout and with a very good bibliography in Harvard format. Well structured, sourced throughout and with a good bibliography in Harvard format. Given structure followed. Reasonable level of academic writing, including citations.
Harvard format references, but limited range. Few citations and no bibliography. Poorly structured. No citations. Poorly structured
