UOLSCM Assignment Hints and Tips
Dear All,
Here is a suggested structure and associated word count for the written assignment. As this is
to be written as an essay there is no need to have sub-headings, i.e. you do not need to have
“Introduction,” “Theory 1,” etc. Do use paragraphs and spaces to help with the presentation
and signpost the sections with opening sentence telling the reader which section they are
about to read i.e. “Quality is a key aspect of operations….” if you are doing Quality as one of
your topics. This helps the reader follow the structure of your essay. The word count is an
approximation, not an exact guide. However, it does help in indicating the weighting of the
different sections.
Introduction to Operations Management, logistics, etc. This is to demonstrate to the
reader that you have an understanding of what operations management, logistics, etc. are
about and that this is the subject of the essay. (About 200 words)
Introduction to the company and introducing the two chosen topics. Give some
background information about your chosen company, making sure that you identify if t is
involved with manufacturing or the service industry. This can include when the company
was founded, what its core business is, the size, position in the sector, etc. It is also very
useful for the reader if you include at the end of this section the two topics that the essay will
be addressing. (About 250 words)
First choice of topic and corresponding theories/concepts. Setting out the main
theories/concepts related to the chosen section i.e. TQM tools if you have chosen quality. A
critique of these, application as to how the company uses them and a critique if applicable
and where information is available compare with other company(ies) i.e. compare with how
the hospital applies TQM compared to Arnold Palmer. (About 750 words)
Same for second choice of corresponding theories/concepts. (About 750 words)
Triple bottom line. Economic, Environmental and Social approach/considerations of the
organisation. (About 300 words)
Recommendations. Is the company/organisation doing a good job, could they do better,
how are they using or not using the concepts/theories that have been discussed. Please note
the Recommendations should be relating to the information you presented about the two
chosen topics. The triple bottom line are not the recommendations. You may want to
mention a little bit about sustainability if you so wish but the Recommendations are there to
address the two topics. (About 150 words)
Conclusion. A summary of the work to neatly wrap it all up. (About 100 words)
