Research Paper – Purchasing and Material Management

 Write a 5-8 page (exclusive of cover page and reference pages) single-spaced paper on one or more aspects of procurement/supply management for any one of the following three companies: Dell Computer, General Motors, or Wal-Mart. The exact focus of the project is up to you, but it must be on one or more topics that we cover in ASCM 626. You must focus on your chosen company’s supply and procurement strategies as they relate to inputs from its suppliers; not on its distribution to the retail consumers (this is not a marketing course). If you list a source in your ending list of references, be sure to properly cite within your content where you use it.

Your project should include comparative analysis, i.e., how the company handles the supply chain management issue(s) that you selected differently than one or more competitors (for example, GM vs. Toyota, Wal-Mart vs. Target, etc.). It should analyze (i) what topic-related challenges the company has faced in the past, (ii) what have they done to overcome those challenges, and (iii) what must the company consider when moving ahead in the 21st century business environment. You are responsible for organizing and segmenting your paper so it’s clear you are covering these issues. For a graduate-level paper, I need to see graduate-level effort and results.

Use a modified APA format: 12-point font, one-inch margins, but single-spacing instead of double-spacing. Include only the references in your list that you actually cite in your main text. Be sure to number your pages. While submission to Turnitin is not required, I will use it to ensure that your work is original and properly referenced.  Use your own words and cite properly. Use direct quotations sparingly, and minimize copying and pasting. Do not re-use any content that you submitted for another class as this will show up negatively when I check it using Turnitin and will very negatively affect your grade. This is an individual assignment with no collaboration permitted.
