| June 8, 2016

Please select one of the below topics for your Final Paper. Wal-Mart is NOT an option for any topic below.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). During the last decade or so a popular trend in Production and Operations Management has been the adoption of RFID, especially in Consumer Packaged Goods and/or Retail companies. Select a company and discuss their RFID adoption project. Discuss the success and/or challenges the company has faced so far, why the company has decided to engaged in an RFID effort, and brief details on the company’s plan (i.e. timeline, end goal, etc…). Attached is a special lecture note I put together around RFID. You may view this to learn more about RFID, and leverage this as a resource. I’ll also review this during Week 3 of class.
Globalization. Another popular trend we all know too well is “globalization.” There are two types of globalization in general: global market (selling a product/service to multiple countries) and/or globalized production (leveraging advantages of different countries to purchase materials and/or assemble products and services). Select a company and discuss the company’s use of globalized production. Discuss the success and/or challenges the company has faced so far, why the company has decided to engaged in globalized production, and brief details on the company’s plan (i.e. timeline, end goal, etc…). Attached is a special lecture note I put together around globalization. You may view this to learn more about globalization, and leverage this as a resource. I’ll also review this during Week 3 of class.
Operations as a Competitive Advantage. Many companies benefit from an effective and efficient operations approach, however, there are fewer companies that truly rely on their Production & Operations Management as a competitive advantage. One notable example is WalMart! WalMart’s “Everyday Low Prices” is feasible in large part thanks to their Operatons excellence. Select a company and discuss the company’s operation model that acts as a competitive advantage (i.e. unique in the industry, sets them apart, etc..). You cannot select WalMart. Describe the competitive advantage. What does this company do that allows their operations process to set them apart. Why is it a competitive advantage?
