1 ASSIGNMENT:Annotated Bibliography
An annotated bibliography begins the preliminary research process. The document will serve as an ongoing list of sources that will support your Final Research Paper.
Each of the sources should be cited in APA format (for help, click on APA Formatting Instructions for Microsoft Word) and should include a two-paragraph summary, or
annotation, of the resource contents and how you intend to use the information within your paper. Be sure to utilize the information from this week���s Argument and
Thesis Workshop discussion, and refer to Research Paper Guidelines for additional support. Before beginning, please review the Model Annotated Bibliography and utilize
the Week One Assignment Template.
To fulfill the research component of this assignment, you must
��� Conduct several searches using any of the databases in the Ashford University Library.
��� Select at least five credible and scholarly, peer-reviewed sources from your library search that support the topics and arguments you plan to present in your
Final Research Paper.
To fulfill the written component of this , you must
��� Include a title page that is formatted in proper APA style.
��� List APA-style references in alphabetical order along with your unique paragraph summaries.
��� Annotation paragraphs must be original and cannot be copied from abstracts or other summaries. Copied-and-pasted annotations may receive a zero grade.
Format your assignment according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. Your annotated bibliography should be double-spaced with one-inch margins and
use 12-point Times New Roman font.
Your annotations should contain
��� A complete summary, in your own words, of the information presented in the article.
��� Your analysis of the best use of this information in your paper, written in your own words.
��� Identification of a possible topic sentence and/or claim the information will support.
The bibliography must be 500 to 700 words in length and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Submission Information: Complete the tasks above and save the document as a Microsoft Word or PDF file. Submit your assignment via the Assignment Submission button.
Please use a naming convention for your assignment files that includes your last name and the week number. So, your Annotated Bibliography assignment should bear a
file name that looks like: smithENG122w1.docx or smithENG122w1.pdf.
3. The hospital operates 365 days per year and the lead time to order blood is 10 days.
Determine the reorder point and the average time between orders.
4. The hospital is concerned with fluctuating demand and would like to maintain safety
stock with a 95% service level. If the historical standard deviation of daily demand is 36
units, what should the new reorder point be?
David Christopher is an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in three types of surgery���hip, knee, and ankle replacements. The surgery mix is 40% hip replacement, 50%
knee replacement, and 10% ankle replacement. Partial bills of materials for each type of surgery are shown in the following information.
Hip Replacement Knee Replacement Ankle Replacement
Surgical kits #203 & #428 Surgical kit #203 Surgical kit #108
Hip Part Pkg #A Knee Part Pkg #V Ankle Part Pkg #P
Patient���s blood type–6 pints Patient���s blood type–4 pints Patient���s blood type–3 pints
Given that Dr. Christopher is scheduled to do five hip replacements, three knee replacements, and one ankle replacement next week, how many surgical kits and part
packages of each type should the hospital have available next week?
How many total pints of blood are needed next week?
Design a ���mistake-proof��� system to ensure each patient gets correct blood type.
What are the implications of a shortage (stock-out) of a surgical kit or part package discovered several hours before the operation? What if a part package has a
missing part that is not discovered until surgery begins?
What is an ‘Economic Order Quantity – EOQ’
Economic order quantity (EOQ) is an equation for inventory that determines the ideal order quantity a company should purchase for its inventory given a set cost of
production, demand rate and other variables. This is done to minimize variable inventory costs, and the formula takes into account storage, or holding, costs, ordering
costs and shortage costs. The full equation is as follows:
S = Setup costs
D = Demand rate
P = Production cost
I = Interest rate (considered an opportunity cost, so the risk-free rate can be used)
BREAKING DOWN ‘Economic Order Quantity – EOQ’
The EOQ formula can be modified to determine different production levels or order interval lengths, and corporations with large supply chains and high variable costs
use an algorithm in computer software to determine EOQ.
