The manager of component 'A' says his functionality is more important than that of component 'B.' The manager of component 'B' says his is more important than that of component 'A.' You can only implement one A or B, but not both - which do you choose to implement.

14 réponses

The key question to ask is definition of "IMPORTANT". Is it important to the managers (ego equation), important to the end consumer or important for Amazon. The first one needs to be thrown out immediately and the others must be quantified based on achievability, impact on end user and ROI. Moins

I would say whichever is more valuable to customer & gives competitive advantage to Amazon. Moins

In addition to the above suggestions, I would look at cost and time to market and then score both options. Then define value metrics. The cheapest and most valuable either as a technology sustainer or for customer wins. Given that it's Amazon, customer value will hold up the highest as one of their corporate culture virtues. Moins

Credit card insurance case: calculate break-even claim rate where response rate = 2%, fee charged = 1% of monthly balance, and average balance = $1,000 per month.

8 réponses

Don't think there's enough info here to solve. Response rate is 2%, but you need to know how much the marketing costs to be able to determine the breakeven. Moins

I think the break even claim rate for this insurance scheme would be 1%. (Keeping all other non-mentioned costs aside) Let's assume 100 customers are contacted: 2% response rate = 2 people buy insurance. Revenue: 2 * (1% of 1000) = $20 At break even, cost would also be $20. Let the claim rate be x% (Note: this will be a percentage of the people who have bought the insurance, i.e. x% of 2% of 100) Insurance pay-out = $1000 per claim Cost: 1000 * x% of 2 = 1000 * x/100 * 2 = 20x Now, revenue = cost at break even, hence: $20 = 20x x = 1 So the B/E claim rate would be 1%. Moins

I am assuming that the marketing cost is $0.5 per mail. So, if 10000 people are sent mail, 2% respond i.e. 200 people revenue - fee charged * balance * no of people * 12(for a year) i.e. 1% * 1000 * 200 * 12 = 24000 cost- 0.5*10000 = 5000 for mailers lets say claim rate is c% so, c% * 1000 * 200 i.e. 2000c (claims are assumed yearly so no need to multiply by 12) so total cost = 5000 + 2000c in case of break even, revenue will be equal to cost. there for 5000 + 2000c = 24000 i.e. c = 9.5 or break even claim rate = 9.5% Moins

How would I design the elevators for a new 40 story office building that had an average of 100 people per floor to most efficiently fill and empty the building given a standard 9-5 workday and traffic conditions in my city? The answer needed to be completely detailed, including expected passengers per car, time per stop, average floors stops per trip at various hours, etc.

7 réponses

1) The first advice that I've read is to ask some questions before you start answering. It will show that you are strategic & don't jump to random assumptions. So I will probably ask questions like: Is the efficiency goal focused only at the start & end of day & not in between (i.e. lunch time, breaks)? How many elevators are there? What is the capacity of each elevator? 2) Assuming that everything is average, i.e. 6 elevators, 15 people per elevator, and focus only on start and end date, then the sample data should follow a normal distribution. 730-8 - 2% 8-830 - 14% 830-9 - 34% 9-930 - 34% 930-10 - 14% 10-1030 - 2% 3) I will break this down & solve the worst case scenario first. This means, 34 people x 40 floors = 1360 people to be transported by 6 elevator x 15 = total 90 capacity during 830-9 or 9-930 am. 4) Focusing on this more manageable problem, 1360 / 90 means each elevator will make 15 full cycles (lobby to highest floor and back) 5) Since we want to minimize the cycle time for each elevator, we assign one elevator per subset of 40/6 consecutive floors. This should address the issue on minimizing time per stop. 6) That means, the final design should be a load balancing of the elevators by minimizing the travel time --- Elevator A - 1st to 7th floor, B - 8th to 14th floor, and so forth. Do you guys see anything wrong with this line of thinking? Moins

The idea is to "learn" from user behavior. Start with a blank slate where the elevators assume that all floors, except the first floor, have the same probability at all times. Then, based on user behavior, alter the probabilities. If the elevators can talk with the users' phones, via bluetooth, and identify to which floor this user goes, when he/she comes to and leaves work, how often does this person take the elevator to go to other floors or out on lunch, then improve the efficiency based on the aspects learnt. Moins

A simple algorithm would be to note that there will be more people during the morning going up and slowly taper this down as the day progresses. For example, during the noon-afternoon period, the frequency and number of people going up or down would be almost the same. So have a priority for the ground floor during the morning hours. Move the elevators as soon as possible to the higher floors. Mandate that people get in regardless of whether the elevator is going up or down, once the elevator reaches the highest floor, it would reverse and go non-stop to the bottom floor. Increase the priority for people for the floors that have the buttons pressed as time passes. Moins

What is the best way to sort a terabyte of array of data, when you have limited RAM (500k), and each array element has a couple of items of data, at about 1-10k each.

6 réponses

External merge sort. First load the data chunk by chunk, sort it in-memory (by quicksort for example) and write it back in chunks. After this, use merge sort on the chunks. This is how most databases do sorting. Moins

How is this relevant to a product manager role? This is an engineering problem

External merge sort is the answer
