For your Project, please select any company (or your own). Don’t select one a fellow student has already taken. As you select your company, I’ll post that company so that everyone looks at a different company.

Begin your research on the Internet to find current information on this company. Consider looking at their financial information listed on their web site, or going to www.sec.gov.

In our Quantitative Analysis class, we have covered many topics, including Probability, Decision Analysis, Regression Models, Forecasting, Inventory Control, Linear Programming, Transportation, Network Models, Project Management, and Queuing.

Select any five topics we have covered in class and write your Project telling how they are used or should be/could be used by the company of your choice. The more specific you can be with details and research, the higher the grade. This paper must represent a quantitative approach to your analysis.

The paper must be in APA format. The minimum length of the paper will be 2,000 words. This word count does not include title page, reference sheet, long quotes, and graphs. 90% or more of these words MUST be your OWN WORDS/IDEAS. Referenced material (quotes and paraphrases) and tables, graphs, and charts may not be more than 10% of the paper.

See your course syllabus (Course Evaluation section) for further information about how this project will contribute to your overall course grade. You will be assessed in the following areas:

  • Quantitative approach to five course concepts (quantitative content)
  • Writing Style and Mechanics including appropriate APA citations
  • Project Presentation including work count and APA formatting
