PREREQUISITES: Students are expected to be comfortable with basic algebra and statistics, which means completion of Mathematics 120, Economics 201, Mathematics 119 or equivalent. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND OBJECTIVES: This course provides an overview of tools, techniques, problems and topics associated with the management of operations and the delivery of products or services. A well-trained manager must be familiar and conversant with the many issues and concepts that arise within this functional area. Moreover, this course presents and reviews some of the applications of quantitative and computer-based tools to managerial decisions. Topics considered include operations strategy and competitiveness, modeling and decision analysis, Capacity Planning, project scheduling, quality assurance, lean operations, forecasting, inventory management and materials requirement planning.
COURSE MATERIALS: Text ­ Operations and supply management: The Core, 3rd Edition, by Jacobs and Chase, McGraw-Hill, 2013. (MIS 302: Introduction to Operations & Supply Chain Management is the title of the book sold at SDSU ­ except for the cover, they are identical) There are a number of versions of this text at various price points in connection with Connect, an online tool for practice problems and quizzes. Below are some options that are available that might be worth contemplating: Option 1: Buy the new, bounded text and code (Connect) bundle from the bookstore. Option 2: Buy the binder ready text with code from the bookstore. Option 3: Buy the eBook and code directly from McGraw-Hill web site. Option 4: Buy a used book somewhere and buy code directly from McGraw-Hill web site (no e-book, just Connect) Option 5: Buy a used book only (if you do not want to use Connect). The material is pretty much the same, except for the fact that some chapters have moved around. Copies of 2nd & 3rd editions are available at the Love Library Reserve for a limited checkout time. Connect Tech Support can be reached at: 1-800-331-5094 Other Material (Required): Each student needs to purchase three (3) Par Score Test Form No. 20788-PAR and bring one to each of the three scheduled exams along with a number 2 pencil. Homework Assignments: Connect operations management (free access with text purchase and free 3 week trial for others). Blackboard (http://blackboard.sdsu.edu): The course website can only be accessed by those who are officially enrolled in the course. Your blackboard username and password are the same as your RedID and University PIN that you use to access WebPortal and other SDSU services. Software: Microsoft Word and Excel are needed to complete homework assignments. Excel templates are available on Blackboard. Lecture Notes: Copies of slides and handouts will be made available on Blackboard
BSBA PROGRAM GOALS: BSBA students will graduate being: Effective Communicators Critical Thinkers Able to Analyze Ethical Problems Global in their perspective Knowledgeable about the essentials of business MIS 302 contributes to these goals through its student learning outcomes (SLOs). The primary SLOs for this course are: Define the role of Operations and Supply Chain in an organization and its interactions with business functions such as Accounting, Finance, and Marketing. Develop the basic business and operations strategies for increased productivity and competitiveness for service and manufacturing. Use descriptive and optimization models and incorporate cost drivers to improve general business decision making. Design quality management strategies, techniques and tools for improved customer satisfaction. Identify issues in inventories and resources for an organization and use basic models to improve its management. Plan the basic scheduling for a project and its management. List and apply lean operations principles. EXPECTATIONS & INSTRUCTIONAL APPROACH: Conduct Of Course: Classes will include lectures and slide presentations, discussions, and problem solving. Lecture slides are intended to compliment the text along with problems that you are expected to review and try to solve by yourself. Blackboard (BB) will serve as the access site for all course materials (e.g., pdf and online readings, webpages, etc.) Classroom Behavior: In order to foster a climate conducive to learning please joins me in treating your classmates with respect. Please refrain from personal conversation or disruptive behavior during class lectures as they are distracting to other students and your instructor. All phones must be turned-off or set to the silent mode during class time. Punctuality is as important in the classroom as in business. Latecomers miss the initial thrust of the lecture and disturb others. Students should make every effort to be at class on time and, if late, find a seat quickly and disturb the class as little as possible. Students are expected to stay in class for the duration of class, but if there is a need to leave early, please sit close to an exit door if at all possible and inform the instructor before hand.
Attendance: Attendance while not compulsory is strongly encouraged. Attendance and participation are vital to the Learning Experience. Consequently, I expect students to be at each class having read the material and ready to participate in the day's discussions and exercises. I understand that other demands may require you sometimes to miss class; if you do so, make sure to check with classmates for missed information. It is not the responsibility of the instructor to provide make-up classes for those who miss them. Bring a calculator as we might be solving problems during some of our classes. Study Groups: I strongly encourage you to form a study group for this course and organize yourselves accordingly by finding other compatible students to work with during the semester since good managers must learn to work effectively and efficiently with other people. Students interested in forming a study group should try to do so during the first two class meetings. The key word is "compatibility" ­ check class schedules, work schedules, grade aspirations, personalities, etc. before joining or creating a group. Make sure each group member has all the contact information (name, phone number, community in which s/he lives). For this class, you should limit your team to no more than four (4) persons. The name of each team member who actively works on an assignment should be listed on the cover page and all Group Members will receive an identical grade for the particular assignment/project. It is considered to be unethical to have your name listed on an assignment that you have not contributed substantially. I will use live Wimba (a web-conferencing tool within BB) from time to time to deliver the class lectures and answer questions. You are strongly encouraged, but not required, to participate in these sessions ­ each will be archived and viewable anytime during the course. If you cannot attend a live session, you are encouraged to watch its archive for that day or topic. I encourage you to attend these sessions in a quiet space where you can use your computer microphone or headset-microphone ­ the chatbox isn't effective for the type of discussions that typically occur. Assignments consist of reading the text, articles, watching videos, exploring web sites or solving specific problems. These assignments are integral part of the course and are fairgame on quizzes and exams! Read and study all assigned material prior to class. The lecture is intended to reinforce and clarify the text material. Use TA's or My Office hours for additional clarification should you need assistance.
Assignment to be turned in for a grade should be treated as a business report, i.e., be done neatly and in a professional manner with writing on only one side of a loose-leaf paper (use graph paper and staple pages when appropriate). You are expected to respond to questions in sentences and provide pertinent commentary when appropriate. Be sure to go beyond simply solving the problems ­ interpret your results thoroughly. Your score will be based on accuracy, insight, effort, creativity, neatness and professionalism in presenting your results. Assignments to be turned-in have specific due dates - late assignments will not be given full credit (if accepted)! ALL ASSIGNMENTS ARE DUE prior to the class meeting or AT THE BEGININGING OF CLASS (the first 5 minutes). To reduce errors in recording grades, regardless on how you decide to respond, you MUST include a typed written cover page. Use the template that is on Blackboard for all assignments that are to be turned in. EVALUATION POLICY: Course Grade will be based on exams, homework/mini-projects, and a few quizzes. Exams constitute approximately 80-90% of the total points in class. The final course grade is determined by the average of exam grades or the percentage of total accumulated points earned in in class solely on my decision. Your letter grade for each exam and the course in this class is based on the scale below (e.g., 76.9% is a C+ or 89.1% is an A-).
Percent 93 - 100 89 - 92.9 85 - 88.9 81 - 84.9
Grade A AB+ B
Percent 77 - 80.9 73 - 76.9 69 - 72.9 65 - 68.9
Grade BC+ C C-
Percent 61 - 64.9 57 - 60.9 53 - 56.9 Below 53
Grade D+ D D- F
Exams: Exams will cover material from the textbook and lectures. The number of questions varies on each exam depending on the nature of topics that are covered. All exams are non-comprehensive and will be CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES; however, you may bring one (8 Ѕ x 11 inches) original hand-written note sheet (writing allowed on one side only), written by yourself, for your own reference. The note sheet must be turned in at the end of the exam, so make an extra copy for yourself prior to exam if you would like to have it for your records. Each student is expected to have his/her own calculator (PDAs, phones, iPods, etc... are NOT permitted) for the exam and you are not allowed to borrow or share books, notes, calculators, or thoughts during the exams or quizzes.
During the exam, TALKING OR DISCUSSION IS NOT PERMITTED EXCEPT WITH THE INSTRUCTOR/MONITORS! Bring soft lead pencils (#2) along with an appropriate SCANTRON Form for the objective exams. You must show all your work on the exam packet and only then mark your answer sheet. Should there be any questions regarding your EXAM, your grade will be based only on those problems in the exam packet that you have clearly marked and have shown how the answer was derived with the respective calculations.
YOU MUST ALSO BRING YOUR VALID STUDENT ID CARD. EACH STUDENT MAY BE ASKED TO SHOW HIS OR HER ID AND THOSE WITHOUT A VALID ID MAY BE ASKED TO LEAVE THE CLASSROOM IMMEDIATELY. ALL EXAMS WILL BE RETAINED, therefore, you are encouraged to come by during the TA's office hours and review your own answers on the exams in my office. Please note, that you may do so up to two weeks from the date of posting of the exam grade unless other arrangements are made with the instructor. All exams, papers and quizzes will be subsequently shredded. Makeup Exam: Exams at other than the scheduled times will be given only when there is a good cause. They will be given at the instructor's convenience, if at all. Advanced arrangements must be given when possible, and appropriate written documentation must be provided before the make-up exam is to take place. The instructor may require the make-up exam, if it were to be given, to be oral as well as written and or comprehensive. Quizzes: Throughout the semester a number online or pop quizzes will be given. Their primary purpose is to ensure that students are "keeping up" with the course material and to give a preliminary look at what exam questions are like. These quizzes must be completed over the time-window stated in the Quiz tab on Blackboard. A missed quiz will result in a zero for that quiz. Errors and omissions regarding exams and assignments should be reported ASAP and no later than two weeks from the posting date. ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY: It is expected that in all matters relating to this course you will act in an ethical and professional manner. Cheating or plagiarisms undermine the learning objectives of a paper, exam, quiz or any other graded work. Acts of cheating, plagiarism and dishonesty are not acceptable behavior and are not tolerated. Please do not take a chance of putting yourself in such situation. For your information the following definition of academic dishonesty is being applied: Academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism (submission of an assignment purporting to be the student's original work which is wholly or in part the work of another person) or dishonest conduct during an examination (including possession of tests or notes not authorized by the instructor, or of devices prepared specifically for the purpose of cheating; communication with another person other than the instructor by any means; looking at another person's paper; violation of procedures prescribed to protect the integrity of an examination).
Plagiarism and cheating are serious offenses. Those caught will be reported to the Center for Student Rights and Responsibilities, which may lead to suspension, expulsion, and probation. For more information refer to: http://its.sdsu.edu/docs/TURN_Plagiarism_AcadSen.pdf (In one case that was brought up to my attention an international student writing a report for a class copied and pasted passages from books and websites. Although he included some citations (he did not intend to "plagiarize", the passages were incorrectly presented (e.g., without proper quotations and attributions). His instructor considered the report to be plagiarized and referred the case to the University authorities, which resulted in him graduating six months later, and the loss of his internship with a prestigious company that he had worked hard to obtain!)
