Waveland Press, Inc., Long Grove, ILISBN: 978-1-57766-739-1.Course DescriptionThe main goal of any manufacturing organization is the creation of wealth. In an effort to predict, control and extract the maximum amount of efficiencies in these organizations flexible, and cost effective manufacturing systems are required. Modern day manufacturing systems are highly intertwined with social, economic and political systems. This class aims to introduce students to these systems and then explain in detail how manufacturing systems cope in a volatile and global market place.Course Objectives1.Be able to explain the historical underpinnings of modern day production/manufacturing systems2.Be able to solve aggregate planning problems3.Be able to solve problems associated with control and planning issues using deterministic or stochastic modeling4.Demonstrate operation scheduling methods in a multi-product manufacturing systemPrerequisitesThis course assumes a familiarity with linear equations (which should be covered in MET 215), basic statistics, and rates of change over time.Course websiteBlackboard: SchemeActivityPointsPercentage AllocationExam 17515%Exam 27515%Final Exam 37515%Home Work10020%Final Project15025%Participation/Attendance5010%Total Points500100%Grading ScalePercentLetter Grade0.00%-59.99%F59.99%-62.99%D-62.99%-66.99%D66.99%-69.99%D+69.99%-72.99%C-72.99%-76.99%C76.99%-79.99%C+79.99%-82.99%B-82.99%-86.99%B86.99%-89.99%B+89.99%-93.99%A-93.99%-97.99%A97.99%-100%A+Technology RequirementsI would strongly recommend that you all possess the following:1.A scientific calculator2.Internet access3.Microsoft Word, Excel & PowerPointSaving & Submitting filesWhen submitting your assignments in blackboard I you are expected to save your file name as your own name.

Not doing so will attract a 20% deduction of points for that particular assignment. All projects are expected to be presented in a logical and reader friendly fashion i.e. with a table of contents. Not doing so will attract a 10% deduction of points on your projects.LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Academic IntegrityIt should be clear that copying even one sentence or unique sentence fragment without properly quoting and citing is plagiarism.  Likewise, cutting and pasting various sentence fragments from various authors to form a paragraph is also plagiarism unless each fragment is quoted and cited.  To clearly not be plagiarism, the paragraph would have to be comprised of original thoughts and words (words that might paraphrase other’s work, but that work would have to be cited as necessary).Legal issues such as fair use and other copyright issues overlap with academic integrity issues but are not the same.  A person could cite and quote correctly, thereby not committing plagiarism, but violate copyright laws because the person used work without permission or too much of it was used. See the file at the course site Course Documents area for more discussion of intellectual property issues.Academic integrity is much more than not plagiarizing.  Academic integrity also encompasses cheating, excessive collaboration, and other issues.  Most importantly, academic integrity should not be viewed as a list of prohibitions but a rather as a proper mind set to do one’s own work and give credit to others as appropriate.  To this end, academic integrity encompasses how much work you use of another (similar to fair use laws).  Many universities and associations believe that using more than 5-10% of other’s work in your document (even if quoted and cited correctly) is too much; that you haven’t done enough original work.  ISU subscribes to Turnitinwhich checks how much of your work is original.  This is not just used to check for plagiarism but also for originality.  Turnitin will be used in this course.All ISU policies and professional ethics regarding academic integrity apply to this course. Any willful violations will result in a failing grade and referral to the Office of Student Affairs which can result in expulsion from the University.  Everyone is highly encouraged to learn more about ISU’s Academic Dishonesty policy found in the Code of Student Conduct.Classroom ConductStudents at Indiana State University are expected to accept certain personal responsibilities that constitute the “standard” for behavior in a community of scholars.As a student at Indiana State University:I will practice personal and academic integrity; I will commit my energies to the pursuit of truth, learning, and scholarship; I will foster an environment conducive to the personal and academic accomplishment of all students; I will avoid activities that promote bigotry or intolerance; I will choose associations and define my relationships with others based on respect for individual rights and human dignity; I will conduct my life as a student in a manner that brings honor to me and to the University Community; I will discourage actions or behaviors by others that are contrary to these standards. (Adopted by the Indiana State University Student Government Association April 17, 2002)Furthermore the follow nondescript rules should also be followed:1.All cell phones should be turned off during class time2.Talking during a lecture is perceived by me to be a blatant form of disrespect. Please avoid doing so while class is in session3.During class sessions that are designated to be class discussions respect and tolerance for a differing opinion is expected.4.Being to class late three times during the semester will attract a 3 point reduction from the class participation/attendance section of this course. For more that 3 late occurrences each late occurrence will attract a 3 point deduction until there is no more participation or attendance points.5.Upholding the good name Indiana State University requires good behavior on your part. When on class plant tours your best behavior is expected.1
