Sample
V ?I ?P VIDEO INSTRUCTIONAL PRODUCTS To: Mear Evans, Sales Department Manager From: Sara Davidson S. D. (signed) Subject: New Product Proposal Date: November 8, 19? CONFIDENTIAL The New Products Committee hopes to present a proposed new product to the VIP Board of Directors at their December meeting. The first draft of the proposal outlines the product concept, potential sales, and cost estimates for a new industrial training film. The new training film follows the design of earlier products used in industry on video cassette recorders. It will focus on the pest-control industry. Its primary purpose will be to train pest-control technicians to eradicate pests in residential and commercial properties while maintaining safety standards for both the PC technician and personnel working or living in the area. The product, an innovation in both pest control and in training, appears to have good market potential. The committee looks forward to presenting the proposal to you and your staff prior to the December Board meeting. We think you will have valuable contributions to make to the overall plan and can suggest methods by which the proposal can best be presented to the Board. By next Friday, please suggest a time most appropriate for our discussion.

Activity 4 Directions: This is a letter from Bill Davies, the chief Executive of a manufacturing company, to Mr. Peter Finch, his Production Director. Please point out its problems and then write a memo based on the information given. Dear Peter, This is just a brief letter to remind you that I would like to hear what you think about the setup for proposed new machine shop. Our operations are going to be expanding in the next few years. Choosing the right machines for the new machine shop is not going to be easy. We require a new set of machines for the machine shop. There are a number of questions to be asked. Among them, the following: shall we buy, rent, or hire equipment? I think we also need a clear policy on maintenance. How much regular maintenance is required to prevent breakdown of machines? Which as you know can be a very costly business. It is not good enough to wait until a machine breaks down and then fix it. At the same time we must be careful not to employ too many maintenance men. I mean, the machinery may never break down, but that might be even more expensive in terms of labor costs and wages. And also, I would like your opinions on the speed of replacement. Could you please give me an estimate of how long some of the newest machines in the trade will probably last? Bill
Reference: Dear Mr. Finch, As you know, our operations will be expanded in the next few years. Now I would like to have your opinion on the proposed machine shop. First of all, shall we buy, rent, or hire equipment? Secondly, How much regular maintenance is required to prevent any costly breakdown of the machines? How many maintenance men should we employ? And how long some of the newest machines in the trade will probably last? I look forward to your reply . Sincerely yours Bill Davies
TO: SUB: FROM: DATE:
Peter Finch, Production Director Proposed Machine Shop Bill Davies, Chief Executive November 20, 2006
I would like to have your opinion on the following questions concerning the proposed machine shop:
  1. Shall we buy, rent, or hire equipment?
  2. How much regular maintenance is required to prevent any costly breakdown of the machines?
  3. How many maintenance men should we employ? Process How long some of the newest machines in the trade will probably last?
  4. Prewriting--Step 1 Specify your purposes. Consider why you have to write the memo. Which of the following is the reason? You require an action. Maybe you want to confirm the date of your holiday. You write to confirm an action. For example, a memo written on the 25th recording the submission of a report due the end of the month indicates you have done the job as required. You write to summarize the results of a committee meeting. You write to announce a department meeting. Step 2 Prepare the Title Line. Put down the title line first to dire
