Week 6 – Final Paper

Space Age Furniture Company

Read “Space Age Furniture Company” in Chapter 9 of your text. Respond to the following and include any Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) calculations:

· Develop an MRP for Space Age Furniture Company using the information in the case including the production of sub-assemblies in lot sizes of 1,000.

· The lot size of 1,000 for sub-assemblies has produced a lumpy demand for part 3079. Suggest ways for improvements over sub-assemblies in lot sizes of 1,000.

· Analyze the trade-off between overtime costs and inventory costs.

· Calculate a new MRP that improves the base MRP.

· Compare and contrast the types of production processing—job shop, batch, repetitive, or continuous—and determine which the primary mode of operation is and why.

· Describe ways that management can keep track of job status and location during production.

· Recommend any changes that might be beneficial to the company and/or add value for the customer.

The final case study should demonstrate your understanding of the reading as well as the implications of new knowledge. The paper should integrate readings, scholarly sources, and class discussions into work and life experiences. It may include explanation and examples from previous events as well as implications for future applications.

TIPS FROM INSTRUCTOR:

Here is the assignment:

Space Age Furniture Company

Read “Space Age Furniture Company” in Chapter 9 of your text. Respond to the following and include any Materials Requirement Planning (MRP) calculations:

· Develop an MRP for Space Age Furniture Company using the information in the case including the production of sub-assemblies in lot sizes of 1,000.

· The lot size of 1,000 for sub-assemblies has produced a lumpy demand for part 3079. Suggest ways for improvements over sub-assemblies in lot sizes of 1,000.

· Analyze the trade-off between overtime costs and inventory costs.

· Calculate a new MRP that improves the base MRP.

· Compare and contrast the types of production processing—job shop, batch, repetitive, or continuous—and determine which the primary mode of operation is and why.

· Describe ways that management can keep track of job status and location during production.

· Recommend any changes that might be beneficial to the company and/or add value for the customer.

Make an outline of these requirements to ensure that you meet all the expectations of the paper.

There should be charts to display the Master Schedule and the Material Requirements Plan. There should be a chart for the before and after the status change of the MRP. There should be a chart for inventory cost comparisons. Your grade will suffer if your paper is missing these charts.

Ensure you have a title over the introduction, that the introduction has a thesis statement, and there are headings delineating all the elements of the assignment. There are still a few of you that refuse to follow these directions. Your grade will suffer if your paper is missing these elements.

Do not write in a passive or first-person voice.

Apply ALL APA formatting requirements including a Title, Thesis Statement, Headings, and a Conclusion.

Use Turnitin. Similarity scores over 20% after I run Turnitin are cause for review. 30% to 40% will cause a grade deduction. Over 40% will be turned into the University for review and you will receive zed on the paper until the review is complete. 

I hope this helps.

FEEDBACK

1. a good paper, but a little confusing in a few spots. Also, the paper would benefit from a little more detail regarding Midas and the other aspects of the implementation such as data, competition, customer satisfaction, change management, and employee input. Might have covered the steps for implementation of the tune-up process in more detail. The review was about the process in general. Overall, a good effort, just pay attention to the details of the grading rubric to help guide your writing. OK?
