For the paper, pick a topic and do a deep dive in to the subject. The text should not be a resource, bring something new to the table. Keep your research as current as possible. Business changes far too much in a 5 year period. Not all research is done in front of your computer, you can interview experts.The best papers dive into a real world example, but do not do them on where you work. The best papers are future looking and not historical. Put yourself in the role of a consulting, making recommendations for the future and improving results.I don’t mind statistical analysis, pictures, or flow charts to help explain the concepts. The paper should be 10 to 12 solid pages of work. It can be 15 or 20 pages, but I am really looking for content.Here are a few ideas of topics to choose from, pick a company and discuss some of the following topics. You should avoid the obvious ones like Walmart, Amazon etc. that have been well documented.Safety of any modeReverse logistics (recycling and/or returns)A first hand case study of a transportation companyThird party logistics companiesLogistics in e-retailingCollaborative software for supply chain managementBuying and selling logistics servicesThe future of EDI and the internet in supply chain managementThe use of GPS and other technologies in supply chain managementSecurity issues and technology in logisticsProcess reengineering in the supply chainForecasting methods and their effectivenessRFIDCustomsTransportation equipment pools, how they work and their effectivenessWarehouse management systems (software)A first hand case stud of ABC costingLocation theory and practice- Do OneLabor issues for any mode, port or company.Security
Use these two perspectives to provide the BEST analysis of the case. 1. Decision-making – how are decisions made? What levels of staff are involved? What information or data is being used, or are decisions made intuitively? What is the effect of this process? Is data being collected and analyzed in a way that helps managers make better decisions? 2. Rewards systems What kind of behavior is being rewarded and is that the kind of behavior that will improve the work? When writing the paper, your interpretation of facts, statements, etc., should be reasonable and objective; don’t rely on generalizations and platitudes. Avoid presenting a one-sided argument that excludes factors not favorable to your conclusions. Above all, find references to support your positions! See “Plaza Inn Case” attachment to view the case.

For this discussion, you will be discussing the gender make-up of your future (or current) occupation. Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics webpage that provides data on the gender make-up of various occupations in the U.S..https://www.bls.gov/cps/cpsaat11.htmLocate the occupation that you are or will be working in once you obtain your degree. Make sure to look through the entire list closely and choose which class of the occupation fits best (health care management ) If you are undecided or can’t find your exact occupation, pick one that you think is closest. Make sure you choose the individual occupation data, not the category overall. Once you have selected it, provide the following information:The occupation you choose- healthcare managementThe percentage of female workersWhy you think this is? Is it because one gender is better suited for the occupation? Is it a result of socialization (i.e. men do physical work while women are care givers)? Think nature (biological) vs. nurture (socialization).Would you expect the “minority” gender to experience problems? For example, would a women working as an electrician experience difficulty doing her job because coworkers or customers might not think she is qualified? If you have ever witnessed a situation like this in the workplace, please share.
