Research paper – strategic purchasing and logistics


Prepare a summary of Week 2 through 9 Cincinnati Seasonings learning as an approximately ten-page paper. The paper must be in APA format with a References page and in-text citations. The paper should follow this outline:

I. Introduction

A. Overview of Cincinnati Seasonings

B. The initial supply chain scenario

II. Accomplishments

A. What went well

B. How could you have improved

III. Comparison

A. Week 2 compared to Week 9

B. What if (select one of the items below and run the simulation to report on the outcome):  

  • What would happen if you began using larger trucks that had higher operating costs per kilometer but could also carry twice as much cargo?
  • The Cincinnati factory is located on rail lines; what would happen if you located the warehouses so that they were also located near rail lines? Could you lower transport costs?
  • Would it make sense to use air transportation to move products in this supply chain?
  • Is it better to expand the existing factory to support demand from the new stores or better to keep existing factory as is and build a new factory closer to the new stores?

IV. Conclusion

A. If you were to do the simulation series over, what would you have done differently?

B. Recommendation: How could this learning experience be improved?

Make sure to include References! I also suggest you view the rubric before submitting and make sure you have included all of the items against which I will be grading!
