Continuing with the information
from Assignment #1, develop a balanced scorecard and create a total
cost of ownership (TCO) model for the five commodities/materials you
need to purchase for your new business. Feel free to make assumptions
about the actual performance of each of the suppliers in terms of
delivery, price changes, quality issues, etc. For example, you could
indicate that your corn leaf supplier delivered on time or slightly
early for the first sixth months but has been habitually late for the
last six months. Make sure to clearly identify the assumptions you use.
Also, rely on the assigned resources as much as possible but you can add
other resources that you find helpful. Feel free to include diagrams to
illustrate your scorecard or model. These diagrams do not count toward
to your page length requirement. Your paper should be two to three
pages, double-spaced, 12-point font, one-inch margins.
- The TCO should be double spaced, 12-point font, and two to three pages in length excluding the title page and reference page.
person writing is required. Third person means that there are no words
such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first person writing), nor is there use
of “you or your” (second person writing). If uncertain how to write in
the third person, view this link: http://www.

- Contractions are not used in business writing, so you are expected NOT to use contractions in writing this assignment.
- Title page
- Use headings to help organize the paper
APA formatting for in-text citations and reference page. You are
expected to paraphrase and not use quotes. Deductions will be taken when
quotes are used and found to be unnecessary.
- The expectation is
that you provide a robust use of the course readings. No other books
besides the course eBook can be used. When using a source document, the
expectation is that the information is cited and referenced with a page
or paragraph number.
