in 1st case too much confusion between self contained and functional structure.

In my opinion, 1st case is functional organizational structure and second is matrix organizational structure.
but m little bit confuse in 1st case , either it is self contained or functioanl. 

Divisional Structure is best for 1st Scenario (Mug Factory)
Matrix Structure for 2nd Scenario 

In self contained or divisioanl may aik president different products then har product ka alag alag departments bnaye jatay hain but in functioan may aik product aik president different departments or functions may ja raha, according to handouts diagram. check lesson num 34 in hadouts  ar yhn mug means aik product p focus hai  . So i think functional ziada better lag raha according to case..

bint e frst me divisional e suit kry ga ...

yeah i read ,read and read again , divisional is better option
