Purpose
The purpose of this assignment is to identify an opportunity for process

Purpose
The purpose of this assignment is to identify an opportunity for process improvement at your workplace, or anotherorganization that you are familiar with, and develop a charter to analyze and implement using the Lean Six Sigma (LSS)problem-solving methodology. The second part of the assignment is to draft a cover “email” to the leader of the area for approval to launch your project.
How to Proceed
1. Complete the assigned reading, and watch the assigned videos for Unit 5.
2. Choose a process that you believe could be improved in your organization, or another organization that you are familiar with. Start by thinking about the 8 types of lean waste. Examples with non-value added steps or wastecould include: manual entry of information that is slow and prone to error, processes that include long wait times,or excessive motion (running around to get what you need).
3. Create a project charter to document what project you have selected and what you want to accomplish. Acharter template can be found here. Other formats will be accepted, provided they cover as a minimum, all of thesections in the provided template.
4. Draft a cover “email” for approval to launch your project – your call for action, and why you propose to follow theLSS methodology. Your email should be a maximum of 3 paragraphs and should be as concise as possible.

Discussion Questions
Does Katz’s observation that men and boys are responsible for the vast majority of violence in America imply that most men and boys are violent Why or why not? Explain.
How does homophobia function in all of this? What about sexism? Do you see a common thread between how homophobia and sexism work to keep young men in line with cultural norms of manhood?
Do you think Katz’s point is that boys and men are exposed to violence in media and then simply imitate it? Or is he saying something else here? Explain.
What does the culture teach young men and boys about what it means, and what it takes, to be a real man? And what does it teach them about what it means when you don’t live up to this ideal?
While Katz is talking about masculinity, race, and ethnicity, he also seems to be talking about class. What’s he saying about how class and economic status can factor into men’s identity and violence?
When you think about young boys being exposed to these accelerating levels of violence – whether it’s in movies, video games, or porn – what kinds of messages about manhood do you think they’re absorbing? What kinds of messages about women? About femininity?
What are some of the reasons that have been given for why men in America are experiencing a “crisis in masculinity”? Do you agree with these assessments?
What’s the link Katz draws between extremist political movements and manhood?
If men and boys are so often the victims of male violence, why do you think so many people call it male bashing to call attention to men’s violence?

Things to think about:
• When is speed important (and how important is it for yo

Things to think about:
• When is speed important (and how important is it for your company’s particular issues)?
• How do you evaluate ‘quality’ in an ESH service?
• When is flexibility important? In what ways might a vendor customize their
products/services/bundles to fit the specific needs of your company?
• When might performance characteristics be emphasized over cost? Is this one of those
instances?
Your Assignment: Prepare a letter to Ms. Krauss recommending one of the vendors for the specific
product-service bundle package you select from those listed (details below). The letter must be no more
than 2 pages long, but must convey all of the pertinent information to justify your choice. Hint: you
should not really use ‘order qualifier’ or ‘order winner’ in your letter, since these may not be in common
use among the management of your company. Treat the letter as if you are writing it to your supervisor.

Identifying an organization and its climate providing the context surrounding the problem and ensuing decision.

Assignment Overview
The objective of this assignment is to assess your degree of mastery of the Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) by demonstrating that you can apply and integrate the key course concepts in a real-world context. Begin this paper by identifying an organization and its climate providing the context surrounding the problem and ensuing decision. Provide a concise explanation of why it is a problem and what will happen if nothing changes? What are the potential opportunities/benefits of change? Following this, develop your paper to discuss your decision-making analysis of this problem as it relates to the first two steps of the rational decision-making process. Within each of the before mentioned areas be sure to include examination of the following:
Assignment Criteria
Overview (suggested length – one page)
Give a comprehensive introduction to the organization so that the reader has all necessary context to determine the effectiveness of your ultimate decision. Include the mission/values/vision of the organization for use later in the process. Conclude this section with a preview of the remaining sections of the paper.
Decision-Making Steps 1 & 2 Analysis (suggested length – two pages)
Rational Decision-Making Process – Describe the first two steps of the rational decision-making process as it applies to the identified problem. Be sure to include:
Defining the problem, in a single sentence (problem statement) being careful to avoid the common errors of:
Defining in absolute terms (either/or, yes/no)
Defining the problem in terms of the proposed solution
Missing a bigger problem
Diagnosing the problem in terms of its symptoms
Identifying the criteria
List and describe each relevant criterion
Mitigating Bias (suggested length – one page)
Identify and illustrate a single heuristic or bias that could negatively impact the decision-making process. Remember that any discussion of heuristic/bias should include a definition, application, and mitigation.
Ethical and Spiritual Analysis (suggested length – one page)
Reflect on the decision-making process, and evaluate the fairness of the decision-making process. Asses the repercussions of the decision on individuals, the organization, and the primary stakeholders or end-users.
Reflect on personal faith and ethical values, consider: is your decision aligned with the faith integration topics for this course? If so, how? If not, how? How do you think that your personal faith, values, and personal code of ethics informed your decision-making process?
Remember
Support assertions throughout your paper with the class sources and other additional sources as appropriate. Students should anticipate that this paper will be approximately 10 pages in length and APA formatted (Level I/II headings should suffice). Suggestion: Use the above subtitles in bold as headings for your paper. This will serve as an outline/guide for you and assist the reader following your thoughts.

The Traveling Salesman Problem Given a collection of cities, along with pairwise

The Traveling Salesman Problem
Given a collection of cities, along with pairwise

The Traveling Salesman Problem
Given a collection of cities, along with pairwise distances between the cities, what is the
shortest route that visits each city exactly once and returns the the starting city? This
question is commonly referred to as the traveling salesman problem (TSP). The traveling
salesman problem can be reformulated as finding a Hamiltonian cycle of least cost in a
weighted graph — a Hamiltonian cycle is a cycle that includes every vertex in the graph.
This assignment will focus on a brute-force solution to the traveling salesman problem.
Program Specifications
You will write a C++ program to implement a brute-force, permutation-based solution for
the traveling salesman problem. Your program will take in a single command line input
specifying a file to read. The input file will contain one or more lines, each of which specifies
a directed edge the form “src dst wt” where src and dst are non-negative integers indicating
the source and destination vertices of the edge, and wt is the weight of the edge. I will
provide you with sample input files for testing, but it is your responsibility make sure that
your program behaves correctly on any valid input file. Your program will output the cost
of the minimum Hamiltonian cycle. See the end of this handout for example output.
You will need to implement your own adjacency matrix or adjacency list structure to store the
graph. Take care not to over engineer your data structure — you do not need to write a full
class to implement your graph data structure. I suggest that you rely on standard template
library containers for your implementation (see https://cplusplus.com/reference/stl/). For
instance
• std::vector > adj matrix;
• std::vector > adj list;
Regardless of the data structure you choose, do not hard-code limits on your data structure
size. Also, please note that variable-length arrays (VLAs) are not part of the C++ standard
and should not be used. For your solution, you make use the std::next permutation
function.
Submission and Grading
You must use skeleton3.cpp (see iLearn) as a starting point for your program, and complete
the TSP function; feel free to create any additional helper functions or include any additional
standard libraries that you need, but do not modify any other existing functions. Your
source code should be contained in a single file and should be named after your TTU email
address excluding the “@tntech.edu” (e.g., jagraves21.cpp). All submissions will be made
on iLearn — please do not zip or compress your files. Make sure to follow best coding
practices (proper naming conventions, useful comments, etc.). Your program should compile
without errors or warnings. Programs will be compiled using the following command:
g++ -Wall -pedantic -std=c++11 [source file]
Sample Output
The following lines contain sample input and expected output to your programs. Please note
that these examples are not exhaustive, and you should verify your programs with additional
test cases.
$ ./a.out graph1.txt

$ ./a.out graph2.txt
