Abstract

The abstract should be one paragraph that summarizes the entire paper. Introduce the topic and explain its significance. Describe the analysis techniques used and key results.

Introduction

Briefly introduce the problem. For example, if the problem is a replacement analysis, explain what the system does and why . Describe the present system and proposed alternatives. The introduction should contain background information, but not a lot of detail.

You should select a topic which relates to the course material. You are free to choose something from your job, a topic related to your thesis research, or a topic you identify from reviewing relevant literature. A typical problem for this course is to determine whether adding a new capability is worthwhile, or choosing among alternatives for solving a problem. For example, one student studied the alternatives of repairing or replacing a small environmental chamber. The student developed cash flows for the two alternatives (which required a modest amount of research) using in-house cost models and equivalent worth analysis. Other students have considered developing a business such as a web-hosted business, homeland security problems, and infrastructure proposals such as highway development in India, and water purification alternatives in developing nations.

Conclude the introduction with a brief overview of the remaining sections.

Problem description

Explain the problem in detail. List assumptions you are making.

Analysis

Present your analysis. Include enough detail to allow the reader to follow what you’re doing. You might find it helpful to include as figures tables copied from a spreadsheet.

You should use at least two techniques discussed in class and two external references. The techniques should not be variations of the same technique. For example, you can’t count two different cash flow analysis methods as different techniques, – they’re all different versions of the same thing. The techniques discussed in this course include demand optimization, design optimization, cash flow analysis, cost estimation, depreciation and taxes, and sensitivity analysis.

Results

Discuss the results of the analysis.

Summary and Conclusions

Summarize the problem, the analysis, and the results. State conclusions and suggest future work if appropriate.

References

Provide a list of references, at least two in addition to your text and class notes. Each of the references must be cited at least once in the text. The references should be listed in the order in which they are cited in the report. The style of the citation depends on the context. If you are citing the authority of a reference, you might say something like “For example, Jones [1] claims the moon is green cheese.” If you are mentioning that several others have studied this problem, you might say “There have been other researchers that claim the moon is made of rocks [2], [3].” Some examples for journal article, book, web page:

J. Jones, “Title of article,” Journal Name, Vol XX, No. yy, pp. nn – mm, Month, Year.

S. Smith, Title of Book, Publisher, City, State, year.

B. Brown, “Web page title,”, http://www.something.com/xxx

Case Study

In September 2018, Mohammed Salim joined KAAF Software Solutions (KAFF) as a Senior Programmer, with a handsome pay. Prior to this job, he worked successfully as an Assistant Programmer in Gant Computers (Gant). Salim felt that working for KAFF, there are better career prospects, as it was growing much faster than Gant, which was a relatively small company.

Although Salim had enjoyed working there (at Gant), he realized that to grow further in his field, he would have to join a bigger company, and preferable one that handled international projects. He was sure he would excel in his position at KAFF, just as he had done in his old job at Gant.

KAFF had international operations and there was more than a slim chance that he would be sent to USA or the UK on a project. Knowing that this would give him a lot of exposure, besides looking good on his resume, Salim was quite excited about his new job.

Salim joined Mrs. Zeenat’s five-member team at KAFF. He had met Mrs. Zeenat during the orientation sessions, and was looking forward to working under her. His team members seemed warm and friendly, and comfortable with their work. He introduced himself to the team members and got to know more about each of them.

Wanting to know more about his boss, he casually asked one of the team members, about Mrs Zeenat. He was told that Mrs. Zeenat does not interfere with our work. Salim was surprised to know this and thought that probably Mrs. Zeenat was leaving them alone to do their work without any guidance, in order to allow them to realize their full potential.

At Gant, Salim had worked under Abdulrahman and had looked up to him as a guide and mentor – always guiding, but never interfering. Abdulrahman had let Salim make his own mistakes and learn from them. He had always encouraged individual ideas, and let the team discover the flaws, if any, through discussion and experience. He rarely held an individual member of his team responsible if the team as a whole failed to deliver – for him the responsibility for any failure was collective. Salim remembered telling his colleagues at Gant that the ideal boss would be someone who did not interfere with his/her subordinate’s work. Salim wanted to believe that Mrs. Zeenat too was the non-interfering type. If that was the case, surely her non-interference would only help him to grow.

In his first week at work, Salim found the atmosphere at the office a bit dull. However, he was quite excited. His team had been assigned a new project and was facing a few glitches with the new software. He had thought about the problem till late in the night and had come up with several possible solutions. He could not wait to discuss them with his team and Mrs. Zeenat. He smiled to himself when he thought of how Mrs. Zeenat would react when he will tell her that he had come up with several possible solutions to the problem. He was sure she would be happy with his having put in so much effort into the project, right from day one.

He was daydreaming about all the praise that he was going to get when Mrs. Zeenat walked into the office. Salim waited for her to go into her cabin, and after five minutes, called her up, asking to see her. She asked him to come in after tem minutes. When he went in, she looked at him blankly and asked, “Yes?” Not sure whether she had recognized him, Salim introduced himself. She said, “Ok, but why did you want to meet me?” He started to tell her about the problems they were having with the software. But before he could even finish, she told him that she was busy with other things, and that she would send an email with the solution to all the members of the team by the end of the day, and that they could then implement it immediately. Salim was somewhat taken aback. However, ever the optimist, he thought that she had perhaps already discussed the matter with the team.

Salim came out of Mrs. Zeenat’s cabin and went straight to where his team members sat. He thought it would still be nice to bounce ideas off them and also to see what solutions others might come up with. He told them of all the solutions he had in mind. He waited for the others to come up with their suggestions but not one of them spoke up. He was surprised, and asked them point-blank why they were so disinterested.

Faisal, one of the team members, said, “What is the point in our discussing these things? Mrs. Zeenat is not going to have time to listen to us on discuss anything. She will just give us the solution she thinks is best, and we will just do what she tells us to do; why waste everyone’s time?”

Salim felt his heart sink. Was this the way things worked over here? However, he refused to lose heart and thought that maybe, he could change things a little. But as the days went by, Salim realized that Mrs. Zeenat was the complete opposite of his old boss.

While she was efficient at what she did and extremely intelligent, she had neither the time nor the inclination to groom her subordinates. Her solutions to problem were always correct, but she was not willing to discuss or debate the merits of any other ideas that her team might have. She did not hold the team down to their deadlines not did she ever interfere. In fact, she rarely said anything at all. If work did not get finished on time, she would just blame her team, and totally disassociate herself from them.

Time and again, Salim found himself thinking of Abdulrahman his old boss, and of how he had been such a positive influence. Mrs. Zeenat, on the other hand, even without actively doing anything, had managed to significantly lower his motivation levels.

Salim gradually began to lose interest in his work – it had become too mechanical for his taste. He didn’t really need to think; his boss had all the answers. He was learning nothing new, and he felt his career was going nowhere. As he became more and more discouraged, his performance suffered. From being someone with immense promise and potential Salim was now in danger of becoming just another mediocre techie.

Questions:

Q1. What, according to you, were the reasons for Salim’s disillusionment? Answer the question using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. (2.5 marks)

Q2. What should Salim do to resolve his situation? (1.25 marks)

Q3. What should a team leader do, to ensure high levels of motivation among his/her team members? (1.25 Marks)
