I’m trying to learn for my Computer Science class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

Within the context of your Week 2 Business Case project you will address and identify the different types of contracts that are available for supply chain management.

You will copy and paste the Business Case.

For each of the six (6) contract types below you will provide a description of each contract type and then identify where each of the contract could be utilized within your project. These need to be specific examples and explain why the specific contract type would be ideal for these supplies (goods or services). There is no word minimum but each should cover the required material and provide the specific information sought.

Elevator Pitch : First class passengers are discretionary spenders from whom we get high revenue per customer. Under ‘Project Oasis’ we need to address the complaints of our first class passengers by adding amenities, some of which are already available for the economy class, such as tablet holders, USB ports, and an extra drink holder, and improve the under-seat stowage. These modifications would allow us to mitigate the negative perception created due to economic measures taken under the project and make our planes more attractive to first class passengers while at the same time helping us save costs and increasing revenue.
