Slide Show: What I Think about It
The slides pertaining to Operations Management for Week 4 is a very clear representation of what Supply Chain (SC) is, the different guiding factors of strategic capacity planning, and what lean production is all about. The definitions and examples were straight to the point and did not need any long explanations about the subjects. Even the examples provided for each chapter discussion were all well-thought out. As each chapter discussion ended, questions called Question Bowl tested an individual’s understanding of the topic at hand.
In terms of organization, the PowerPoint presentation was presented in a logical manner, with the sequence of topics easy to follow and understand. It also helped that transitions between sections were smooth and well coordinated. Despite the limited slides in presenting the topics, each slide was still able to discuss the important aspects of each topic. In other words, the slides touched on the topics in the most amount of information in the least amount of words.
Another thing that helps the PowerPoint presentation achieve its purpose is how it made use of other presentation methods such as graphs and tables that further made the topics clearer. Added to this is the use of slide transitions to stress a point and on a more trivial matter, boredom, which made the presentation more interesting. With the use of colors, highlighting methods, and flowcharting symbols, such as clouds, process symbols, and moving arrows, discussions flowed easily and concisely.
In general, the presentation was effective in delivering the content and message as it emphasized the major points of each topic. It was well-designed and easy to interpret and with the way information was presented, one can deduce that whoever created the presentation had a good grasp of the topics at hand.
