The project will consist of a written report and an oral presentation of a logistics issue of interest to the team. The team members will select the topic to be presented. Typically, the logistics issue might concern an effort on the part of a company to improve its logistics functions. Teams are welcome to meet with the instructor to discuss ideas. A good place to start looking is in business magazines and periodicals (see the list at the end of this syllabus for ideas). The team will select a team lead, who will communicate the intended topic to the instructor.
Team Leads will submit an electronic/digital copy of their report brief write-up via Carmen by 9:00 AM two days prior to their presentation date. The expected deliverable is to be approximately four (4) letter-sized (8 ½” x 11”), singe-spaced, type-written pages using 10-12 point Arial, Calibri, Times New Roman, Verdana, or similar font. Page limit does not include the coversheet or appendices/attachments used in the write-up. All team write-ups will need to cite sources inline, used to generate the response, as well as providing a detailed reference list at the end using APA, Chicago, Turabian, or similar format. These should be included as endnotes on a reference page.
