# PLC Input and Power Supply

This content was STOLEN from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

Attached are shown several external components and a 12 volt 8-point common input module for a PLC. The inputs on the input module share a single common terminal (COM). The inputs are bipolar. The sensor has a PNP output. It is powered by Vcc = 12V and its output transistor is ON when the sensor is ON. Wire the components to the PLC inputs and power supply such that:

1. IN0 is ON when sensor is ON
2. IN1 is ON when the limit switch LS1 is ON (conducting)
3. IN2 is ON when toggle switch S1 is ON (conducting)

(see attached for full description of the problem)

## Conduct a PIE Analysis of the Metal Container Industry

Please see the attached template 1

Conduct a PIE Analysis of the Metal Container Industry
Later that afternoon, as you are settling into your office, Vice President Henry Clark sends you an e-mail explaining the details of the metal container industry analyses he has asked you to prepare.
E-mail from Henry Clark on the Metal Container Industry
Rationale
You will learn to analyze the factors that affect an industry's ability to create and capture value. Understanding how to perform an industry analysis is the first step in being able to create or analyze a strategy.
Prepare an analysis of the metal container industry that includes:
? A vertical chain for the metal container industry.
? A potential industry earnings (PIE) analysis that discusses the effect of various factors (including the six forces) on the metal container industry's ability to create and capture value. Limit your analysis of each factor to three to five sentences.
Suggested Approach
Project materials:
? Metal Container Animation
? Metal Container Industry Overview
? Magazine Article (interview with beverage container industry analyst in Container Industry Today)
Learning resources:
? What is Industry Analysis?
? Vertical Chain
? Industry Structure
? Using PIE
? Industry Competition
? Saloner et al, Strategic Management, pp. 119-47 and 239-64.
? Porter, Competitive Advantage, pp 1-30.
E-mail from Henry Clark on the Metal Container Industry

To: You, Analyst
From: Henry Clark
Subject: Metal Container Industry

As I told you this morning, one of our clients is currently thinking of acquiring a company within the metal container industry and has asked us to determine the overall attractiveness of the metal container industry.
I'd like you to analyze the profit potential of this industry. What factors are most responsible for its success?
I am sending you some materials that will help you in your research. Included are a number of articles and an explanation of the can-making process that will help you familiarize yourself with the industry. You will also receive an overview of the metal container industry, which a former associate of mine prepared before leaving Kegan.
I look forward to seeing your analysis. Good luck.
Henry
