Term Paper (20%): Each graduate student is required to prepare a term paper on current topic relevant to the subjects covered in this class. Any paper used for fulfilling requirements of other courses MUST NOT be recycled in this class. The purpose of the term paper is to demonstrate that you can apply the process analysis techniques learned in this class to a global supply chain problem of your choosing. The paper must include a statement of an operations management problem and analyze the process with the principles learned in this course. The paper should be typewritten, paginated, double-spaced, in Time font, size 12, 1 inch margins (top, bottom, left, and right), and must follow the outline shown below. There is no page limitation, but a good term paper may need 8 to 14 pages of narratives to provide in-depth analysis of a selected topic. Start preparing the outline before midterm.
