This assignment will be one of several throughout your PhD program that we use to help you prepare for the dissertation process. One of the core competencies necessary to succeed in a doctoral program is the ability to identify other research that pertains to your own. This means you’ll have to identify similar research, read the papers, and assimilate prior work into your own research.
An annotated bibliography helps you develop and hone these research skills.
This assignment is listed on the syllabus as “Mid-term research paper“. Your paper will be an annotated bibliography, specifically focusing on Chapter 8 Capacity Planning & Forecasting.
Forecasting is the art and science of predicting future events . Forecasting is a statement about the future. Operations management is designed to support forecasted performances and events.
Specifically, operations managers allocate personnel, time, and resources in order to meet the demands of forecasts.
You paper must be in correct APA format, use correct grammar, and will need to include at least seven (7) resources 150 words each, ALL of which must:
1) Be current. Published within the last five years.
2) Be peer-reviewed.
3) Relate directly to Chapter 8 Capacity Planning & Forecasting
A. Remember that an annotation is not the same as an abstract. Abstracts are descriptive. Your annotations are to be evaluative and critical.
B. Provide enough information to make your paper clear and concise. Don’t go skimpy on these annotations, but DO NOT write too much here. Quality is far more important that quantity.
C. This exercise is for each of you to demonstrate that you can identify, categorize, and digest multiple research papers.
D. Every resource you choose must be peer reviewed. That means the paper must have undergone a formal peer review before being published in a journal or presented at a conference. You must ensure that your resources have undergone rigorous reviews. In most cases, you can find out the review process for a conference or journal by visiting the appropriate web site or UC Library. Do not simply assume that a resource is peer reviewed – check it out.
