template if you are using Microsoft Word 6.0 or later.
Otherwise, use this document as an instruction set. Define all
symbols used in the abstract. Do not cite references in the
abstract. Do not delete the blank line immediately above the

Index TermsIn alphabetical order, write the index terms
or keywords that describes the important points of your paper.
List at most 4 keywords or key phrases.

Give a short introduction that will relate your study to
your intended readers. As much as possible, try to link your
study (technical in nature) to the practical experiences of
your readers.
State your specific reason for conducting this study. State
your reason briefly but clearly.
Describe the general situation here.
End this part with a general description of the problem.

should be to make the reader have a clear picture of the

problem to be solved. (Tip: Ask a non-IE to read your
description. Check if he/she correctly understands the
problem that you are tackling.)
In your text you should mention the following:
Whose problem it is you are tackling
What is the measure that is low or high
when did the organization start noticing that the
measure is unexpectedly low or high?
(refer to your slide on The Problem)
Insert the diagrams that you presented to describe the
Insert also the diagram of decision-making that leads to
the problem.
In order to write this part, you must read research works
related to the problem. Summarize each of these research
works and present them here. It is important that you
mention what parts of those related research works you are
using as basis to develop your own solution to the problem.
Furthermore, highlight possible inadequacies of those
related research works that led you to develop your own
solution or approach to the problem.


Describe the client organization here. Detail the outputs,
inputs and processes of the specific organization (if you
studied the subsidiary, discuss the outputs inputs and
processes of that subsidiary).
Include the size of the organization and of the specific
department that you studied.
Describe the specifics of the problem here. Your goal

Having read other studies, for Scope write about your
problem that were commonly tackled by other studies. For
limitations, write about those typically tackled by other
studies but is not a concern of your problem
Write your proposed solution here. For example,
Given the problem, state clearly your objective.
Ex. To decrease the shortage in raw material X by 50%
every end of the month.



organization. Note: Do not put your proposed solution here.

Put the proposed solution in the main body. You may put
the raw data here.

Insert your diagram of analysis here.


Perform further investigation on what causes the problem.

As much as possible, provide data to show the degree of
contribution of each identified cause.
More specifically, if you have a diagram of the decisionmaking, copy that and paste here. Put real/actual data on
each step and analyze where the high or low measure stems


Presentation of detailed computations which need not

be in the main body because they are not main components
of the study. However, presentation of these might be
needed because the audience might be interested to know
how the values in the main body of the report were derived.
(The preferred spelling of the word acknowledgment in
American English is without an e after the g. Use the
singular heading even if you have many acknowledgments.
Avoid expressions such as One of us (S.B.A.) would like to
thank ... . Instead, write F. A. Author thanks ... .
Sponsor and financial support acknowledgments are
placed in the unnumbered footnote on the first page.)


Present and describe in narrative your proposed solution
here. What do you think should the client company do to
solve the problem? (Put your answer here.)
Illustrate to the reader by citing an example on how to use
your proposed solution
Example of Proposed Solution:
From Flowchart of Previous Slide: Change x
in IP > x (variable x) to a fixed value of 150.
Present a way to prove the validity of your
recommendation. For example, if the problem is excess
inventory, compare their actual excess inventory for the last
three months compared to what would have been their
excess inventory for the last three months had they utilized
your proposed solution.
Ask them to run your proposal in the plant or if that cant
be done, run your proposed parameters to past situations
and compare the performance of your proposal with what
actually happened. (That is theoretical validation, using
hindcasting.) Your resulting measure should be improved
by your proposal.
The conclusion should summarize the problem, the scope
and limitations, the present literature, the gap, the proposed
solution, the important points of the data analysis and
discussions and a one sentence statement of the
proof/validation that you have achieved your objective.
