                                                Resit Assignment
Rationale
The aim of this module is to explore the diverse range of activities that comprise the area of International Operations and Project Management. The group project will consist of a presentation supported by two artefacts. The rationale for choosing this assessment method is that it allows students to simulate real life experience of working as part of the operations management and project team involved in the planning and implementation of operations and project management issues in contemporary international organisations. The presentation covers learning outcomes 1-4 and they are best assessed in a group setting to mirror what happens in the real world. This approach is in line with all the programme aims and learning and teaching strategy.

Assessment
There are two forms of assessment that will be used during the module. On a regular basis, you will gain ‘informal formative assessment’ which will be derived to aid your learning. This feedback is not recorded against your records, but is to be used by you to improve your work further. This feedback will be gained from your tutors and peers and is available through seminars, workshops and face-to-face tutorials. Additionally, students will have opportunities to arrange individual tutorials with their tutor or through emails. The second form of feedback is ‘summative’ and will be the grade and feedback gained from the business plan you submit at the end of the module (see dates below). Summative assessment and feedback will be provided via Moodle in line with Faculty policies.
Individual Coursework Assignment – 3,000 words (100%)
This Module focuses on the management of organisational operations that are used to deliver the product (either a good or service) to the customer and the management of projects – ad hoc or ongoing. The project requires that a process or supply chain be identified, flowcharted, analysed, and preparation of project plans using various planning tools. 
Choose an existing process for providing an international company’s goods or services, or a product or service’s supply chain and document and flowchart the process or supply chain and critically analyse the process/supply chain and offer an alternative flowchart and rationale supported by the themes, theories and concepts covered in the module.
You are required to produce an operations management strategy for the company’s development based on its current operations.
The coursework shall include:
A detailed process/supply chain flow chart of the company. 
An understanding of the relevant theories, concepts and models
Critical capacity analysis of the process/supply chain
Suggested metrics used to measure the process or supply chains performance, and how a changed process may improve them.
In the assignment, you will need to demonstrate understanding and application of theories and themes covered in the module.
Summative feedback
Summative assessment and feedback will be provided via Moodle in line with Faculty policies.
Plagiarism
You are reminded of the University’s Disciplinary Procedures that refer to plagiarism. A copy of the Disciplinary Procedure is available from iCity.
Except where the assessment of an assignment is group based, the final piece of work that is submitted must be your own work. Close similarity between assignments is likely to lead to an investigation for cheating.
You must also ensure that you acknowledge all sources you have used.
Submissions that are considered to be the result of collusion or plagiarism will be dealt with under the University’s Disciplinary Procedures, and the penalty may involve the loss of academic credits.
If you have any doubts about the extent to which you are allowed to collaborate with your colleagues, or the conventions for acknowledging the sources you have used, you should first of all consult module documentation and, if still unclear, your tutor.
