GUIDELINES AND INSTRUCTIONS:
What is a Case Study?
Case studies are a form of problem-based learning, where you present a situation that needs a resolution. A
typical business case study is a detailed account, or story, of what happened in a particular company, industry,
or project over a set period of time.
The learner is given details about the situation, often in a historical context. The key players are introduced.
Objectives and challenges are outlined. This is followed by specific examples and data, which the learner then
uses to analyze the situation, determine what happened, and make recommendations. The depth of a case
depends on the lesson being taught. A case study can be two pages, or 20 or more pages. A good case study
makes the reader think critically about the information presented, and then develop a thorough assessment of
the situation, leading to a well-thought-out solution or recommendation.
Pick a company with which you are familiar (preferably the one you wrote about for your first paper), either
by working for it or by a close family member working for it. Write a paper about it with the following sections:
1. Introduction - Give a brief overview of the company including its product or services, location, history. 2.
Product - Describe the product or product mix or service in more detail. a. If a product, show a picture or
diagram and/or an assembly drawing. Include a bill of materials or assembly chart if appropriate. If you have a
product mix, show a typical product or a few typical products. b. If a service, a flow chart may be appropriate
or the flow chart may fit better in the process section. c. What created the opportunity for your product or
service? d. Do you make or buy your product or service? (yes, services can be purchased -think temporaries,
independent truck drivers, etc.) Explain. e. What issues are involved in the design of your product or service?
Environmental issues, robust design, value analysis, modular, manufacturability, etc. Where is the product or
service in its life cycle? 3. Process - Give an overview and flow diagram of the process. If your process is very
complex, give an overview. Point out any bottlenecks in your process. a. Is your process product focus,
repetitive, process focus or something else. Explain. b. If possible, do a time function map. c. Discuss issues
that apply to your process if it is to produce a product. If you discuss fixed costs and variable costs, do not give
me actual numbers but give them as a percentage of the total cost or some other appropriate measure. d. If a
service, discuss customer interaction and process strategy e. Discuss any environmental issues involved in your
process. f. Discuss technology used in your process. g. Discuss the information systems that support your
process. h. Give a history of improvements to your process (e.g. look at lean manufacturing). i. Discuss any
issues that pertain to capacity. What determines capacity for your process? How do you deal with uneven
demand? You may make recommendations for improvements. You may rearrange the topics if you think that
it improves the flow of the paper. Your report is printed, double-spaced, 12 pt font, 1 inch margins. I would
expect that this would take a minimum of 3 pages and a maximum of 12. Your grammar and spelling will be
graded. 3. Link – The study shall connect to anyone of the topic we have taken up (chapters 10-17) as shown
below for the Midterm requirement which is worth 20 points. Continue your study and link to one of the
remaining chapters for the Final term requirement which is worth 20 points. Submission date for Midterm is
on February 8, 2016 and for Final term is on March 7, 2016. Please strictly observe the deadline and have your
report pack. Email to me [email protected] the final term output including the power point presentation.
You are going to present starting March 7 following the number sequence assigned to your group to start with
number 1. You are given 20-25 minutes presentation per group. Each member should participate and present.
