Running Head: FINAL PROJECT MILESTONE TWO QSO 300 Final Project Milestone Two Sydney Rogers The Date 1 FINAL PROJECT MILESTONE TWO 2 Please be sure to replace all red/blue text. The information and words below should not be

 

used as an answer, they serve as a guide and template, not the answer. You can either

 

restate the question(s) or use subtitles ? it?s your choice.

 

Also, please be sure to review the Course Announcement?s for supplemental resources and

 

information. It?s likely you will find the information located here extremely valuable as you

 

work on your Milestone Two Assignment. Especially those announcements that mention

 

?Milestone Tips?. Introduction:

 

Write a brief 2-3 sentence introduction simply describing what Nissan has going on and what we

 

are going to review. ?Nissan, like most companies, has explored the use of process

 

management functions. The below paper describes the use of these process management

 

functions and how Nissan may incorporate them into their OM functions.

 

I. Theories and Techniques

 

A. Explain the five steps of the theory of constraints (TOC) process. To what processes might

 

the company in the case study apply TOC? Why would applying TOC to these processes be

 

advantageous?

 

For the Theory of Constraints you can list the steps as described on page 306 of our OM

 

textbook.

 

You may find it helpful to list out as follows:

 

Step Nissan Step 1-Identify the constraint. During this step, Nissan would? Step 2-Develop a plan for overcoming the During this step, Nissan would determine?

 

identified constraint.

 

Step 3?Etc.

 

Be sure to use in-text citation for page 306. Please be sure to provide your own thoughts to what

 

processes Nissan might apply the Theory of Constraints. Also, state the benefits of TOC here as

 

well.

 

B. Describe how total quality management (TQM) principles and tools can be used to improve

 

quality in the latest line of products in the context of the case study. FINAL PROJECT MILESTONE TWO 3 For this critical element, write out a paragraph regarding what TQM is, and then 2-3 paragraphs

 

on how these tools can be applied to improve quality at Nissan. TQM is described on pages 212218 of our OM textbook. In simple terms how can benchmarking, continuous improvement,

 

employee empowerment, Six Sigma, and TQM tools assist Nissan in producing quality products? II. Data Analysis

 

A. Draw a cause-and-effect diagram that assesses why some of the company?s supply chain

 

partners might have struggled to implement some of the company?s newly developed

 

materials. Summarize your findings from the diagram.

 

The cause-and-effect diagram should be specific to supply partners failing to implement new

 

materials for Nissan. This is a what-if scenario and you can brainstorm different reasons why

 

a supply partner may fail to implement new materials. Your diagram needs to include issues

 

with manpower, method, inventory, and equipment. Page 219 of our OM textbook provides

 

an example of a cause-and-effect diagram.

 

You may consider using this template: fishbone Please note, you will have to cut-and-paste the actual fishbone diagram into your word

 

document or upload the entire excel workbook as an attachment. If you choose to upload as

 

an attachment, please be sure to indicate this within your word doc.

 

You will also need to write a paragraph summarizing your cause-and-effect diagram.

 

B. Draw a hypothetical process (time-function) map for producing a recently released (within

 

the past two years) product manufactured by the company. As an operations manager, how

 

will you use the value map? Be sure to include your process map within your case study

 

analysis.

 

Page 280 provides an excellent example of a process map. This is a swim lane that can be

 

built rather easily in excel.

 

The first column going down describes your different areas;

 

Customer

 

Sales

 

Production Input

Warehouse

 

Delivery

 

Time---

 

After creating the map, provide a few sentences explaining how you in an OM capacity

 

would use the map. Many students note excess hold times when building the flow chart so

 

that they can then call out the issue here.

 

C. Considering the data and options below, determine where the company should locate its new

 

manufacturing plant. Explain why this would be the favorable location.

Political Risk .25

The data provided in the rubric can be easily used with the factor-rating method. Please see pages

 

333-334 of our OM textbook.

 

The best location would be the one with the highest score. Please be sure to also explain why this

 

is the favorable location (specific factors).

 

Just a friendly reminder, make sure that each reference has a hanging indent. Also, an in-line

 

citation needs to be included in the body of the document where the source is used. For

 

information on how to reference your sources in the APA format refer to the following website:

 

https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/. In addition, I recommend visiting the

 

Sharipo Library and review the following resources under the ?Guides? tab: APA Style: Basics,

 

Citing Your Sources, and Evaluating Sources.
