Your final assignment in this course is a written research-based project and presentation. For this project, select a publicly traded company (or use the company for which you currently work) and clearly identify the need for logistics and management goals. In your final project:
- Offer 3-5 specific examples of each mode of logistics and transportation of goods for that company (i.e., management logistics via rail, air, OTR, etc.).
- Explain how the program will be organized and staffed â€“ how do you staff and operate the various modes of logistics.
- Identify both internal and stakeholders of the program. Who benefits from each element of the logistical program?
- Discuss strategies for vesting participants in the program (i.e. how does your company create value added to the company for management and logistics efficiency)
- Identify and justify 3-5 specific metrics that will be used to assess program effectiveness.
- Discuss how you could use the standards in the logistics and management framework to design and conduct a program evaluation – how well will you decide you did during a project (consider RFID).
- Discuss what program managers do when justifying conclusions and making recommendations in a program evaluation.
- Include any other details that you feel are relevant.
Your final research paper should be at least 10 pages in length must draw content from at least 6 recent (no more than 5 years old) scholarly journal articles. Follow APA format and provide citations all for references used.
