Please conduct independent research on operations management using scholarly, peer-reviewed articles in order to understand the process of managing operations. Then please create an infographic outlining the process for completing a task. You can use a task from home, school, or your work but need to clearly explain the process involved in its execution using your creativity. Post the infographic and/or the link to your infographic directly into the discussion forum. Be sure the topic is clear, i.e. if you are creating an infographic on how to bake a pie, make sure it is clearly titled. For more information on the importance of process mapping: https://www.cedu.niu.edu/~bailey/ftf564/pmapping.pdf Try and have fun/be creative with this one.
Please also review TWO other students process maps using the following criteria: How would you rate their clarity on a scale of 1-5 (1 being really confusing, 5 being really clear) and why? How would you rate their creativity on a scale of 1-5 (1 being really confusing, 5 being really clear) and why? What is one aspect of the process you feel could be eliminated, changed or improved to make things more efficient? What is one aspect of the process you feel unclear on or don’t quite understand? What are two strengths of this infographic from a reader’s point of view?
