HSBC Account Opening Process

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements


The goal of the project is to apply modern operations management research to a problem in the industry. You will need to first select an organization and then analyze any key OM decision covered in the course. You will then propose improvements using advanced OM techniques found in the literature. The organization could be from the service or manufacturing industry, and either public or private. 

The project is to be done in groups from three to six students. This activity evaluates group performance and it’s important to have an exchange of ideas. The organization selected must have operations in the UAE, and it’s important you have access to primary information. It is not relevant if the company is small or large but it’s rather critical to have access to information describing the processes involved in the key decision.
