Management of production and operations Research Paper and Presentation United Airline Pilot Shortage

“United Airline Pilot Shortage”

In this course, you will study production management. As part of the course, you will analyze an aviation or aerospace industrial management issue related to production/operations management, write a research paper, and create a presentation.

Considering the 10 OM decisions, your paper will be a review of issues that were caused by a failure in the production/operations management process. You will compare and contrast the current research findings with the principles and concepts presented in your Heizer, et al. textbook.

All reference sources should be from academic journals, professional trade publications, and respected business or industry magazines. Limit the use of books as sources. Do NOT use articles or sources from Wikipedia! Use references published within the past six years.

The basic rules for your research paper include:

  • Follow the current  for manuscripts closely.
  • The paper should be 10 pages at a minimum.
  • Use one-inch margins on all sides.
  • Left justify all narrative.
  • Use Times New Roman font, 12-point.
  • Indent the first line of each paragraph one-half inch.
  • Double-space everything in the paper. Do not add extra lines or spacing between paragraphs or sections of the paper.

After you write your research paper, you will create a five minute narrated presentation using Canvas Studio. Your presentation should meet this basic criterion.

  • Title slide with the topic, course number, and author (student) identified.
  • Overview or introduction slide to describe the presentation content.
  • A sufficient number of slides to convey the method and findings of the review.
  • Audio that further describes the slide content.
  • Summary or conclusion slide to close the presentation.
  • Reference list to show the sources cited within the presentation.
  • Video, animation, or other supporting elements as desired to enhance the presentation.
  • The presentation will be due by day three of Module 9.

Review the for assistance in creating your presentation.

For research papers, it should be a concise statement of the main topic of the research and should identify the variables or theoretical issues under investigation and the relationship between them. Although there is no prescribed limit for title length in APA Style, authors are encouraged to keep their titles focused and succinct. I would focus on one company or airline company and talk about the issues and causes of this shortage, but you need to incorporate these elements in your title. Considering the 10 OM decisions, your paper will be a review of issues that were caused by a failure in the production/operations management process. You will compare and contrast the current research findings with the principles and concepts presented in your Heizer, et al. textbook
