Chapter 1
In this chapter, the proponents present the highlights, descriptive definition,
long-range objectives, major assumptions in market, technical, financial, socioeconomic, and organizational and management of studying the business feasibility of
Engineers Manufacturing Corporation.
USB or Universal Serial Bus is a protocol for connecting peripherals to a
computer. It features a standardized port designed to accommodate many different
types of hardware devices.
The first USB technology began development in 1994, co-invented by Ajay
Bhatt of Intel and the USB-IF (USB Implementers Forum, Inc). The organization is
comprised of industry leaders like Intel, Microsoft, Compaq, LSI, Apple and HewlettPackard. It supports and adopts comprehensive specifications for all aspects of USB
USB 2.0 offers plug and play capabilities for various multimedia and storage
devices. This newer version offered additional user features that did not exist in its
previous version. USB 2.0 added support for power sources with USB connectors, a
new descriptor for multiple interfaces, as well as the capability for two devices to
interact without the need for a different USB host (also referred to as USB On-TheGo).

Flash drives are very easy to use. Nearly every new computer sold in recent
years has several USB ports and the flash drive simply plugs into one of these ports.
No cables, power supplies, batteries, or computer shutdown is required. The device
automatically becomes visible as a new drive and is ready to use in just a few
USB memory stick tech hasn't really advanced ever, even while it's flourished
like crazy to fill a technological need moving files swiftly and easily between
computers, faster and with more convenience than burnable CDs. That's partly why
it's got so cheap so fast. But this also means that a bunch of other technologies have
been advancing.
The proponents came up with the topic of engineered design USB flash drive
inspired by BOLT Group, mainly because as college students, we often use
computers to complete assignments, projects or thesis. USB Flash Drives offer a
reliable solution to store and share documents, photos, videos and music.
Name and Logo of Enterprise
Engineers Manufacturing Company or E-Corp is a start-up company that will
develop economical marketing solutions and focuses on developing efficient and
engineered design card size USB flash drive.
Trade mark logo of the company is shown in the figure below. Green, the
colour of life, renewal nature and energy, is associated with meanings of growth and
environment. Green is also traditionally associated with money and ambition.

Whereas brown is down-to-earth colour signifying stability, structure and support.
Brown relates to quality in everything. In the figure below, the colour of the stem
signifies recycled paper structure of the flash drive, which supports the memory chip.
A flash drive plant signifies that our company is an eco-friendly provider of products,
as well as for the continuous growth of the firm.

Figure 1. Company Logo
“To become a dedicated and well-known distributor of eco-friendly designed
USB flash drive.”
“E-Corporation will – from the beginning – invest in top quality, highly refined
eco-friendly USB flash drive as well as implement innovative operation policies.”
Establishing a new company involves choosing a location, proponents decided
to establish the main office in Brgy. Real, Calamba City Laguna. It is a secure
location mainly because it is being developed into an industrial area and has nearby
universities. The spot will provide easy access for customers, nearness to
competitors to facilitate and ensure proper design and placement of the firm along

with safety factors to protect pedestrians from vehicles. Safety of the customers is
also ensured by the company.

Project Plan Horizon
USB sticks are useful for two things: Storing files temporarily, and sharing with
another computer user. To drop a file on your USB stick you use your computer's file
manager, then you pop it in the new computer and access it. This tech is supremely
innovative, and no doubt is a hugely potent tool for marketing and for some specific
use cases.
Project’s short range objectives (1-3 years)
The company targets to be a well-known provider of unique 4-pack USB in the
entire Calamba, Laguna area. The company also aims to produce quality and unique
concepts of products. Continuing to help the environment and provide eco-friendly
Project’s long-term objectives (4-10 years)
As our company grows, we target to expand the firm, franchise in different
locations to generate increase in sales volume and stronger purchasing power. At
that point, we will be able to secure necessary funds and contracts to achieve
projected sales goals, successfully enter targeted markets, become a profitable
company and establish a solid reputation as an industry leader. The company will
