Introduction:

For this task, you will be using “Business Fundamentals,” a Marketplace simulation from Innovative Learning Solutions. You will act as the manager of a firm that manufactures and markets personal computers. You will prepare an analytical report that you plan to discuss with your management team as you review your company’s performance in the simulation.

Task:

A. Submit the following documents from your simulation company:

Note: You may submit your files in a word-processing document or spreadsheet format.

• Fourth quarter cumulative balanced scorecard
• Income statements for the four quarters
• Balance sheets for the four quarters

B. As you prepare to respond to prompts 1 to 5 shown below, you should reflect upon and analyze your simulation results. Consider the following in your analysis:
• Your actions during the simulation
• The relationship between your actions and your simulation results
• Your success compared to other competitors
• Alternatives to your actions that could have produced better results in the simulation
Keeping your analysis and the simulation content in mind, respond to the following prompts:
1. Evaluate how you utilized budgets and pro-forma statements to ensure adequacy of funds for providing the production capacity you needed to achieve your business goals.
2. Evaluate how you employed each of the following strategies to improve operating efficiency in your manufacturing facility:

Note: You may provide real data to support your analysis.

a. Just-in-time
b. Lean operations
3. Analyze the applicability of work cells to the type of manufacturing facility included in the simulation.
4. Evaluate your decisions involving inventory management (e.g., Did you have inventory when you needed it without incurring unnecessary inventory carrying costs?).
5. Explain how you could meet the need for a specific continuous improvement program to achieve quality assurance goals.

C. If you use sources, include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Note: Please save word-processing documents as *.rtf (Rich Text Format) or *.pdf (Portable Document Format) files.

Note: When bulleted points are present in the task prompt, the level of detail or support called for in the rubric refers to those bulleted points.

Note: For definitions of terms commonly used in the rubric, see the Rubric Terms web link included in the Evaluation Procedures section.

Note: When using sources to support ideas and elements in a paper or project, the submission MUST include APA formatted in-text citations with a corresponding reference list for any direct quotes or paraphrasing. It is not necessary to list sources that were consulted if they have not been quoted or paraphrased in the text of the paper or project.

Note: No more than a combined total of 30% of a submission can be directly quoted or closely paraphrased from sources, even if cited correctly. For tips on using APA style, please refer to the APA Handout web link included in the General Instructions section.
