Ompressing the supply chain through E-commerce for the customer benefit in the fashion industry
Compressing the supply chain through e-commerce for the customer benefit. Choice of industry goes back to the writer in which field he feels a dissertation could be written on. This study should be based in UK. Either (fashion industry, or pharmaceuticals or organic food.) for the result of quicker delivery and cheeper price for the high edge quality than the ones found online or at the supermarket-or outlet or pharmacy depending on the industry.
3. You are expected to provide a historical background to your proposed research topic a full blown history of past studies etc. is not expected but details of how you came to be interested in the title, why you think it is worth spending your summer months on it, a?the nature of the problema . The various categories are there to guide you they are not exhaustive.
4-6. I expect you to be able to demonstrate some a?pre-readinga around the subject you have chosen e.g. a chapter in a text outlining a management technique that you intend to apply, your collection of data sources so far, or so on. You might wish to mention the sources that you have consulted so far.
If you have already settled on a title, you should by now have begun to collect the beginnings of your bibliography and references so we expect a list of articles, trade press, and textbook material that you have consulted to date. If you have begun your literature review, then a critical assessment of the material you have collected so far would be useful.
If you have a good idea of the discipline base from which you will draw your research methods and analytical tools, then a discussion of these techniques, their strengths/weaknesses, and a consideration of their application in contexts similar to your own selected area would be appropriate. For example, in management, if you are going to use Porteras five forces framework, then a discussion of its strengths/weaknesses, and its use in a management context not dissimilar to your proposal, would be useful.
7. I expect you to briefly outline the principal subject bases that you intend to draw upon (Management, Economics, whatever) and the way that these areas will provide the basis for an analytical, rather than descriptive, basis. (see 9 below)
8. Data sources. What data are you going to use? Is it primary (you collecting it) or secondary? Is it derived from a questionnaire? If so, have you a provisional one which you can include in the submission? How long will you need to collect your data? Is it based on just one company? If so, how are you going to justify its validity? What transformations will you need to do n the data? If it is questionnaire derived, how are you intending to analyse the results?
9. This is in a sense, the heart of your dissertation it is crucial for you to be able to state clearly just what kind of analytical model you intend to use in the dissertation proper. Description is necessary, but not sufficient on its own to generate a pass. For example, if you are analysing cabotage in Greece, and its potential abolition, I would expect to see a recognition of the need for economic analysis, and a discussion of the relevant market structures appropriate to that industry at the present time and what effects might be observed this might be speculation at present, or your a?hypothesisa of what is likely to happen i.e. your project in embryonic format.
It is expected that you should be able to provide a reasonably firm outline in this section. If you are doing a dissertation in the legal area, then a review of past case law in the chosen subject would appear to be essential in order to provide the basic legal underpinning for the dissertation.
10-11 are really there for administrative convenience.
