Critical Thinking Assignment (100 Points)

Important! Read First

Choose one of the following two assignments to complete this week. Do not do both assignments. Identify your assignment choice in the title of your submission.

Common Instructions for both Options #1 and #2: Operations Management Forecasting

  1. Access the Pearson MyOMLab per the instructions located in the Course Information folder, titled: MyOMLab Student Guide. Carefully review the simulation’s introductory information and instructions as the results will influence your grade by 10%. After completing the simulation, capture a screen image of your final simulation results, which are to be included in your critical thinking operations management assignment as an appendix item.
  2. The operations management forecasting assignment content must include the following:
  • Introduction: Explain the purpose or thesis of the paper, and explain how the body of the paper is arranged to support the purpose of the paper.
  • Provide a brief definition of operations management forecasting and identify why it is important in an organization’s operations.
  • Provide a brief overview of the forecasting simulation.
  • Describe your strategy for performing the forecasting simulation.
  • Describe at least three operations management forecasting methods, principles, or techniques experienced in the forecasting simulation.
  • Itemize at least three lessons learned from the forecasting simulation.
  • Conclusion: Present a recap of key points and summary of main emphasis without repeating verbatim and exclusive of new information.
  • References: Support your paper with your textbook and at least three scholarly, peer-reviewed references. Use current sources, not older than five years. The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these references.
  • Appendix: Forecasting simulation results. The appendix page should be its own page after your reference page, with the header: Appendix—with your screenshot pasted below.

Submit your Critical Thinking assignment document(s) to the module submissions area established for this purpose. Per the assignment rubric, a portion of your evaluation is based on your simulation results.

Option #1: Operations Management Forecasting Paper

This Critical Thinking assignment option consists of two activities:

  1. Performing the Pearson MyOMLab Forecasting Simulation, examining the results, and identifying lessons learned. Please adhere to the detailed instructions contained in the Common Instructions for both Options #1 and #2: Operations Management Forecasting
  2. A written operations management forecasting paper.
  • Your report will require a structure that includes a strong title, followed by an introductory paragraph which generates interest and includes a thesis and mapping of what is to come.
  • Each of the sections should use appropriate APA headings, including a conclusion section.
  • Make sure that the body sections address each of the previous bullets.

Submission Requirements:

  • Your well-written paper should be three to four pages in length not including the required cover and references pages.

Option #2: Operations Management Forecasting Presentation

This Critical Thinking assignment option consists of two activities:

  1. Performing the Pearson MyOMLab Forecasting Simulation, examining the results, and identify lessons learned. Please adhere to the detailed instructions contained in the Common Instructions for both Options #1 and #2: Operations Management Forecasting above.
  2. Creating a written operations management forecasting presentation.

Submission Requirements:

  • Your multimedia-rich operations management forecasting presentation must contain logically-cohesive flow, including audio, video, and graphical content.
  • The length of the presentation, in addition to the title and reference portions, should be 10 to 12 slides (must include speaker notes), or five to seven minutes of narrated presentation (must include a transcript).
  • Please present your content clearly, concisely, and cohesively.

The presentation may be submitted as a completely self-contained file (e.g., PowerPoint, Prezi, Screencast-o-matic, Knovio, or Loom) or as a link to a hosted internet site.
