 Seeking Organizations for Spring 2013 Operations Management Principles Course - Students work with community partners looking at organizational process and/or procedures and make suggestions for improvements that will streamline procedures and reduce bottlenecks.  Students can work on projects involving process improvement; quality control; inventory management; and scheduling issues.


Previously this class worked with HALO, Inc to help redesign their donation intake space and make it a more efficient space for clients to be able to utilize.  This included a hair salon, a "resale shop" for clients, and a secure place to keep sensitive paperwork.  Brenda Thomas, Development Assistant at HALO, said "Each issue was addressed and, we strongly feel, successful solutions were presented.  During the PowerPoint, both [students] were able to show us our needs, their design...and how their work will impact our room and our efficiency."


            If your organization would like to participate in this spring semester CBL project, please e-mail Debra Karp at debra.karp@uwp.eduor call with questions at 262-595-2367.
