SG5011: Sustainable Operations and Supply Chain Management
|Word count: Approx. 1700 words and appendices||This is an individual report.|
Learning Outcomes Evidenced by this assignment: 1 to 6.
Choose three of the presentations that you will have given in seminars. Use the theory demonstrated in these to assess the sustainability of the organisation* and demonstrate how the use of IT can help maximise performance.
The following assignment instructions provide a more detailed explanation of the requirements for your submission.
Details of the task
This assignment requires you to:
During the semester, you should have created and discussed a range of formative and summative presentations that include an explanation of theory. You are not expected to describe the theory a second time. You are expected to use it. Your research should focus on establishing the nature of operations in your chosen case study.
You are now in a position to complete the written part of your submission: The body of your assessment should focus on reapplying those tools and theories to your chosen organisation in order to establish the extent it demonstrates good practice.
For this piece of work, your "appendices" will be as important as the written work, and will attract 30% of the marks. The best two presentations that you have crated and discussed in the seminars will make up the "appendix".
A suggested structure for your report:
If you choose to structure the main body of your work in a different way, make sure you provide similar coverage of the material.
Introduction :(Approx. 175 words)
A common error is for students to think this relates to the historical development of the issue when its past often has little relevance to current situations. This background material should make the purpose of the report relevant. You may find it appropriate even at this early stage to use theoretical concepts.
Main Body:(Approx. 1350 words)
Keep the headings informative, and remember that “main body” is not appropriate.
Section 1: Outline the product and service including delivery, quality standards, and supply chain, an associated process and the usage of ICT. You should aim at only including description that you will rely on to substantiate your analysis.
Section 2: Analysis of the organisation:
Show the extent that the operation is demonstrating good practice.
Section 3: Explain your findings:
Care should be taken with grammar and spelling and your work should be referenced in accordance with Cite them Right.
Provide your word count at the end of the report:
If you prepare a good answer, you will probably find the word limit quite tight:
This part of your work will be marked using the mark awarded at the point of presenting the material in your seminar and submitted to Turnitin by the stipulated date - if you intend to submit the work without alteration. You will need to list the presentations you intend to refer to on the front sheet.
