The product design group of Switches Inc. has determined that it needs to design the swimming pool with a new series of wiring and electrical facilities. The market forecast is for 200,000 units. The better and more sophisticated the design strategy and the more time spent on value engineering, the less will be the variables costs. The following costs are a good estimate of the initial and variable costs connected with each of the 3 strategies:

  • Low-technology: This option has a fixed cost of $45,000 and variable-cost probabilities of .3 for $.55, .4 for $.50 and .3 for $.45 each.
  • Sub-contract: This has a fixed cost of $65,000 and variable-cost probabilities of .7 of

$.45, .2 of $.40 and .1 of $.35.

  • High-technology approach: This has a fixed cost of $75,000 and variable-cost probabilities of .9 of $.40 and .1 of $.35

In considering the economic condition, there is another option for the construction firm. This can be explained by the firm by taking NO action to perform the project and wait for a year later. The significant cost for this action is $155,000 which incorporates fixed and variable costs.

  • Apply the expected monetary value (EMV) assessment and justify your optimum decision. Support your answer with relevant computation and justification.                                    (20 marks)
  • Based on the above construction situation, propose THREE (3) total quality management (TQM) tools that aims to maintain the quality of the project. Support your answer with relevant project management concept and diagram if applicable.                                                                        (30 marks)

Ethics.

To reiterate, it is a requirement that all research must be conducted in accordance ethical guidelines. This encompasses all research including qualitative interviews, questionnaires, surveys and physically invasive procedures. For further clarification please consult your course leader

Assignment guidelines

  • You are to answer ALL questions.
  • The coursework must be done and must be entirely the work of originality. Please make sure that you are aware of the rules concerning plagiarism. If you are unclear about them, please consult your program coordinator/lecturer.
  • This assignment carries a weighting of 100% within the Module assessment.
  • Students are to answer the following questions in a modified essay format (Cover Page, Table of Contents, numbered headings and sub headings, with Introduction, Body, Close and reference list).
  • The word count is indicative but students should not exceed the limit by more than 10%. Try to stay with allocated word count as far as possible. Marks are gained for THE CONCISE EVALUATION OF ACADEMIC AND EMPIRICAL MATERIAL.
  • As a postgraduate student, there is no excuse for poor spelling, bad grammar, or lack of formatting. Use one and half spacing with 12- point font and pages must numbered. Use New Times Roman.

Table of contents and numbering

A comprehensive table of contents is required, with section numbers, section headings, and page numbers. It will include the List of references, a List of appendices, a List of figures, and a List of tables, all with page numbers indicated. All sections and pages should be fully numbered.

Introduction

An Introduction should be provided at the beginning to summarize the structure of the following sections of the report/assignment.

Body of assignment

This is an academic assignment, so it is essential that your statements be justified by relevant academic theory. A major failing of students is to simply ‘describe’ the processes that have happened. At postgraduate level, you are expected to be able to apply recognized theory to situations, and form opinions. You will often find conflicting opinions from so – called ‘experts’. You should be developing analytical communication skills.  Students coming from other universities, and especially overseas students, find this need  for  ‘analysis’ the most difficult transition to make.

You are expected to use your judgment to analyze problems, make value judgments as to whether it is good or bad (or both), use existing academic theory from a range of sources to justify your position, and to argue whether something is valid or not. In the study of management, there is no right or wrong answers, only lots of opinions, many of which change over a period of time. Show that you can act as managers, and communicate your opinions. Major sections should start on a new page. You will be surprised just how much more readable it makes your assignment / report

Referencing

Referencing is NOT just inserting a list of publications at the end of the report and this is not acceptable. Referencing is NOT just inserting a citation at the end of each paragraph and is not acceptable.

At postgraduate level, you are expected to demonstrate the use of a wide range of sources and the ability to engage and evaluate different academic and empirical perspectives and practices. Single or very limited sourced assignments are likely to fail of achieve low marks. References MUST be cited using Harvard system (which is author/date). Please do not use footnotes, etc. Read your Communication skills handbook for information on how to cite reference materials. References must be listed alphabetically by author in a single List of References at the end of each assignment. Do not put multiple lists of references at the end of each section or part.

Late Submission

  • A 10% deduction per day of total coursework marks (excluding weekends and public holidays).
  • Late submission between 5 to 10 days, results in a 50% deduction of total coursework marks.
  • Late submission past 10 days results in an automatic 0% for coursework and the student will be barred from the final examination.

Additional Information

  • The coursework write up must be able to demonstrate critical analysis and application of both theory and practical issues to the company in the case study.
  • You should bind your coursework with the coursework cover as the 1st page Do not forget to include both your student names and Identification numbers
  • A CD containing the softcopy version of your coursework should be submitted as well.

Final Examination (40%)

A written final examination will be held during the examination time set by the university. The exam will be based on structure questions. Further details of the examination format and duration will be announced later in the course.
