The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.

The memory chip company has determined that there are 3 possible general locations for building a key production facility as follows:

  • A rural location in the Southwest United States that has offered major tax incentives and promised to make the company exempt from certain local environmental restrictions
  • An overseas location in Southeast Asia that will provide low cost labor, no tariffs consisting of 12–25 year old employees that have been well-trained
  • A major metropolitan U.S. city that is the most optimal from a workflow standpoint, has minimal tax incentives, and more stringent local restrictions with the potential for an excellent employee pool (numbers and quality)

Using course materials and other research, complete the following:

  • Identify the ethics implications of each alternative: Postulate what situations might prove problematic, and describe how the company should handle them.
  • Identify the methods the company should use in making the final decision on this facility location.
  • Comment on other postings by critiquing the other proposals and suggesting aspects of your classmates' plans that may have been overlooked.

In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on 2 other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.

For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.

Unit4 - Group Project

The memory chip manufacturer, having identified the appropriate location for its major production facility, now wants your team to determine the optimal internal layout for the facility based on the following criteria:

  • The facility will manufacture several lines of memory chips, some with compatible components and some that do not have compatible components.
  • The facility will also house an administrative support workgroup that will receive and process orders, bill customers, and provide payroll/HR support for the local workforce.
  • The facility will also be responsible for shipping to national, international, and local customer locations.

Using course materials and other research, complete the following:

Individual: There are 4 types of potential layouts: product-based, functional, cellular and fixed-position layouts. Divide the work up with equality among individual team members so that each of the listed layouts is defined from an academic context and it is specified how it might apply to the company's facility.

Please add your file.

Group: As a team, discuss your justification and choice for the most appropriate method for the company, and come to a consensus.

Finally, as a team, determine the most appropriate optimization models of the chosen layout(s). In other words, identify the best methods that the company can use to optimize workflow amongst those methods (individual layout types). Provide a full rationale.

Please add your file.
