9. University Regulations for Assessment All assessments are subject to the University Academic Regulations for taught provision . These include regulations relating to Errors of Attribution and Assessment Offences. In exercising their judgement, Examiners may penalise any work where the standard of English, numeracy or presentation adversely affects the quality of the work, or where the work submitted exceeds the published size or time limits, or where the work fails to follow normal academic conventions for acknowledging sources (see Special Instructions). 10. The requirements for the assessment Background Information: Historically many companies have honed their competitive edge by adopting the ‘Just-in- Time’ philosophy that involves producing goods to meet demand exactly in time, quality and quantity. However, such finely-tuned systems leave manufacturers vulnerable to disruptions in any of the many links in their supply chain. Unexpected natural disasters such as the Japanese tsunami (2011) or major storms like Hurricane Sandy (2012) have prompted some companies to rethink the popular Just-in-Time style of doing business. You are required to write an essay (2500 words +/-10%) supported by relevant academic literature that critically evaluates the international outsourcing challenges faced by UK manufacturing companies, with particular regard to risks and sources of potential disruption. You should seek to answer the following question: Just in Time, is it still a good strategy in times of crisis?” Note : During the module there will be an assignment surgery (w/c 10 th December). During this session there will be an opportunity to check your understanding of the assessment requirements and to gain some formative feedback within your peer group. You are *required* to bring a PRINTED copy of your draft essay to the session.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
