MBA 675 Online Winter 2017 Week 1 Assignments Page 1 of 11 Week One – Using Operations to Create Value (Chapter 1) and Decision Making (Supplement A) Overview of the Week: * Administrative Welcome to MBA 675!! As this is our start-up week, I have extended the due dates for this week’s assignments. This week, I am using a Monday/Wednesday due date schedule. Beginning with Week Two, we will begin using a Saturday/Monday due date pattern that I will use during the term. Information about accessing the myomlab.com web site can be found in the Course Resources button. There is a document titled “2017W - Instructions for Accessing myomlab.com”. You will be able to download the POM for Windows V4 and OMExplorer software programs from the Download Center on this web site. Later this week, I will be providing you information relative to the Grading Scheme selection option that I am providing each student. This selection is not due until December 16. This will give you a chance to have submitted some homework assignments as well as having at least one graded before the selection date. This will be found in the Course Resources. This week I have provided a variety of videos for you. I encourage you to view all of them. The entire set of them is listed in the Related Links section of this assignments document. I talk in more detail about some of these in the next few paragraphs. One covers the design of my Cyberactive (Blackboard) course itself and the others are about the material we will be studying during the term. Another discusses my expectations for the weekly discussion forum and in particular your participation in the weekly discussion forum assignments. There are also three sets of videos focused on the analytical concepts that we are studying this week. These concepts are productivity, break-even and decision tree analytical methods. These provide additional help on these subjects if you would like it. The break-even analysis video is more in-depth with several parts. I provide more information about this one shortly. All of the videos are also provided in the Course Resources folder. I have two versions of the problem-solving videos. The original in-depth problem-solving videos are in a folder entitled Problem-solving Multimedia Presentations. I would always suggest checking this folder as I often provided the accompanying documents here along with the link to the presentation. As you access the videos through the Course Resources, I will provide the video URL in either a document or a folder. If the URL is in a document, the attachment will be flagged with a “Click here to open” message. If the video URL is provided in a folder, you can click on the folder
