Guidelines for Submission: The format of this assignment is a Word document using a business writing format of your choice. (I use Times New Roman 12 on all my papers) There is no minimum page length
requirement, but the submission should be no more than four pages in total. Please copy and paste any data analysis from Excel into your Word document for
submission. You may include your original Excel documents as supplementary material if you believe that this will strengthen your contribution. I have attached the template and rubric for the final project case study. I also included Milestone one and the feedback I received. I did not complete the next two milestones so cannot provide that. I need the final paper completed so I can submit on Sunday. The Nissan case study is included too. This is for QSO 300 Operations Management
