Question;Course Project: Part 1 -;Ishikawa Research Paper(due at the end of Week 3);Objectives;Guidelines;Grading;Rubrics| Best;Practices;Objectives;Back;to Top;This;project involves researching and writing a short biography on Dr. Kaoru;Ishikawa. Our text addresses many of the areas in the management and control of;quality and provides a great amount of information on a number of different;quality concepts. However, the authors only mention Dr. Ishikawa in passing.;Just who is Kaoru Ishikawa? Prepare a 500-word biographical paper on Ishikawa;describing his contributions to quality. You should not limit your research to;online materials. Two of his books are excellent sources: (1) What is Total;Quality Control: The Japanese Way (1985) and (2) Guide to Quality;Control (1976). Submit the completed paper to your Dropbox.;You will;research this person?s life and work to determine the impacts that he has had;in the world. You will define the quality leader?s significant contributions to;modern quality practices in terms of major impacts in a specific organization.;The project will enable you to understand;Ishikawa's key ideas,how Ishikawa has influenced;quality practices throughout the world,how his ideas fit into total;quality management, andthe implications of;Ishikawa's ideas for the future of quality.The;project will require sustained research effort until the paper is submitted.;You are encouraged to begin work on the project during Week 1 and be prepared;to submit the required project deliverables by the end of Week 3. A basic APA;tutorial can be found in the Webliography, and a paper template can be found in;Doc Sharing.;Guidelines;Back;to Top;The paper;will be a short biography on Kaoru Ishikawa. It will adhere to the grading;specifications as described below. The student will submit a paper of at least;500 words, not including title page and references, by the end of class Week 3.;The student will use at least two sources plus the course textbook, for a;minimum of three references. All references are to be from academic journals;professional or academic textbooks, authored websites, or standard business;publications such as The Wall Street Journal. Not more that 30% of the;content will be from direct quotations. The final score will be reduced by one;point for each percentage point when the direct quotations are over 30% of the;content.;NOTE;Wikipedia and unauthored websites are not acceptable sources. Do not use these;types of sources, otherwise, you will lose points.;The;format of the paper should conform to the Publication Manual for the;American Psychological Association (APA), 6th edition, for the title page;text, citations, references, and so forth.

Sample papers, using;APA format, are located in Doc Sharing. Other useful information has also been;provided there, including an APA paper template.;Cover page: Include the person you;prepared the paper for, who prepared it, and the date.Introduction: In APA format, the;introduction is understood to be the first content of your work, thus, it;does NOT require a title.;The purpose of an introduction or opening:Introduce the subject and;why the subject is important.Preview the main ideas and;the order in which they will be covered.Establish the tone of the;document.Include in the introduction;a reason for the audience to read the paper. Also, include an overview of;what you are going to cover in your paper and the importance of the;material. (This should include or introduce the questions you are asked;to answer on each assignment.);Body of your work: Include titles to identify;different areas that you address. State the main ideas, major points in;each idea, and supporting information. Break down each main idea you will;use in the body of your paper. Show some type of division, like separate;sections that are labeled, separate groups of paragraphs, or headers. You;would include the information you found during your research and;investigation.Summary and conclusion: Summarizing is similar to;paraphrasing, but it presents the gist of the material in fewer words than;the original. An effective summary identifies the main ideas and major;support points from the body of your report. Minor details are left out.;Additional hints on preparing the best possible project:Apply a three-step process;of writing: plan, write, and complete.Prepare an outline of your;research paper before you go forward.Complete a first draft, and;then go back to edit, evaluate, and make any changes required.Use visual communication if;it will help clarify and support your work.
