Supply Chain Management/Technology in Operations Project 20 points Due Monday, November 15. 12:30 p.m. Objective: In fulfilling this assignment, you will exercise creativity. By this project, you will demonstrate to the professor that you understand something significant about supply chain management or about the role of technology in operations. Your final product will communicate autonomously and will be of a form that could be made available on the internet. Guidelines and Boundaries You may turn in the project individually or as a member of a team. A creative piece is something that has never been done or assembled before. You must do your own work and you must include credits for any sources upon which you draw. The assignment is worth 20 points, which is twice as much as a typical homework assignment in this class. Use that as a guideline for how “big” the effort and end product should be. Tangible form options include a written report, story, poem, or essay, a self- contained PowerPoint presentation, a Flash animation, a video clip, an audio clip, a collection of linked web pages, an annotated gallery, a computerized game or simulation. Consider history, key persons, fundamental concepts, new developments, cutting edge ideas, important considerations, current challenges, public opinion, techniques, well known or little known companies, future developments, etc. Humor, drama, sarcasm, criticism, and hype are acceptable. Gore, obscenity, and derision are not. Look through chapters 9 and 12 to get concept ideas. (Chapter 12 is specifically on Information Technology, you may broaden the topic to operations technology in general.) Your tangible product should be targeted to be understood by your peers: juniors in college taking a class in operations management. Exceptionally effective projects (those that communicate well an important concept) may earn up to 10 points extra credit.
