Post 1 Assignment

  1. Visit The Henry Ford Innovation Nation YouTube Channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjxoDvr0T6t-qbgXmorC0NA
  2. Scroll through the sections of the YouTube Channel to find at least 4 videos that are of interest to you. Watch the 4 videos. Choose one or more of the videos as the topic of Discussion Post 1.
  3. In the “Henry Ford Innovation Nation Video” Discussion Board, make one post between Weeks 6 & 7: Describe how one of the Innovation Nation videos demonstrates one or more of the Operations Management Decisions. Your 150+ word post should include the video title and link, a description of how the video demonstrates the OM Decision, and at least two references, in APA format. Complete this post by Wednesday of Week 7, 11:59 PM.
  4. Post a substantive response (at least 50 words, more than “Hey, that’s cool”) to one colleague’s post by Sunday evening of Week 7, 11:59 PM.

To remind you of the OM decisions, here’s the list:

  1. Design of goods and services (Ch 5)
  2. Managing quality (Ch 6)
  3. Process and capacity strategy (Ch 7)
  4. Location strategy (Ch 8)
  5. Layout strategy (Ch 9)
  6. Human resources and job design (Ch 10)
  7. Supply chain management (Ch 11)
  8. Inventory management (Ch 12, 14, 16)
  9. Scheduling (Ch 13, 15)
  10. Maintenance (Ch 17)

Here’s a sample post:
In Innovation Nation: Geometric Pies (

), Lauren Ko designs amazingly artistic and delicious-looking pies. Her pie enterprise demonstrates the OM Decision of Design of Goods and Services, in which she designs pies as works of art, the images of which are purchased by companies to use as artwork for their marketing projects. As explained in Heizer and Render’s description of the concept phase of product development, Ko gets her ideas for geometric pie design from a variety of sources (2017, p. 166) – textiles, architecture, and everyday things. Interestingly, she doesn’t mass-produce her pies, which is a unique interpretation of the OM Product Design decision. According to reporter Zoe Sayler (2018), “[Ko] knows she never wants to have a pie shop, fearing that she would be forced to sacrifice creative freedom for menu consistency.” Instead, she applies her gift to providing pie-design instruction in workshops and TV appearances on shows such as Martha Steward Living.
