The following appeared in a report presented for discussion at a meeting of the directors of a company that manufactures parts for heavy machinery.

“The falling revenues that the company is experiencing coincide with delays in manufacturing. These delays, in turn, are due in large part to poor planning in purchasing metals. Consider further that the manager of the department that handles purchasing of raw materials has an excellent background in general business, psychology, and sociology, but knows little about the properties of metals. The company should, therefore, move the purchasing manager to the sales department and bring in a scientist from the research division to be manager of the purchasing department.”

Discuss how well reasoned you find this argument. In your discussion be sure to analyze the line of reasoning and the use of evidence in the argument. For example, you may need to consider what questionable assumptions underlie the thinking and what alternative explanations or counterexamples might weaken the conclusion. You can also discuss what sort of evidence would strengthen or refute the argument, what changes in the argument would make it more logically sound, and what, if anything, would help you better evaluate its conclusion.

    以下內容是一份發表於為重機械生產零件的公司董事會議上的報告.公司收入滅少之際, 也是公司延遲生產的時候.這些延遲,大部份起因於不良金屬購買計劃.想想負責購買原料的部門經理有著一般商業的超好背景,心理學及社會學.但是他對於金屬卻知道得很少.公司應該把採購經理調到業務部,再把一個研究部門的科學家帶進來當採購經理.討論一下,你對於以上的議題覺得理由充足嗎, 在你討論中,要分析理由/原因及用到爭論議題證據(就是上面有提到的),舉例來說,你也許需要考慮怎樣的假定是有問題的,及怎樣的另一種解釋或相對的例子可能會使得結論不具說服力.你也可以討論怎樣的證據可以加強爭論.及爭論上怎樣的改變會使它更合乎邏(及), 及什麼(任何的事)能幫助你更好地評估它的結論我的意見:Because the dirtors already think the reason why the present manager is not suitable for purchasing dept. (he has academic backgroud, but doesn't know about metal), so if they move a scientist to the purchasing dept., maybe they will solve the problem of the manager no knowing about the metal, but they will have another problem. The scientist is only knowing much about researching, he might not know about purchasing which is the general business field. So I think bring the scientist to be the head of the purchasing dept. is not a good idea.
