Maintaining Operations

Please read the assignment, NO plagiarism, Assignment due 08
In this paper you will create a small case or use a situation/problem from real life. You will discuss this situation together with a discussion that

works through a solution of your own to the problem posed. Problems or issues from your own work (e.g., service operations or overhead functions) can be excellent situations, although they need not be chosen.

In the first part of the paper you should specify the situation, while in the second part of the paper you should work out what you personally and professionally see as its solution.

Any type of operations management problem can be chosen, from line balance to job design to new equipment justification to quality problems to whatever operational options can be associated with the case.

Present your case study and solution in a 6 page Word document formatted in APA style.

Please submit your assignment.

Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:

TITLE PAGE. Remember the Running head: AND TITLE IN ALL CAPITALS

ABSTRACT. A summary of your paper, not an introduction. Begin writing in third person voice.

BODY. The body of your paper begins on the page following the title page and abstract page and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The type face should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics except as required for APA level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your paper for this assignment is 6 pages. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.

REFERENCE PAGE. References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hang indention, italics, and upper and lower case usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference Page is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.
