Case Study Analysis – The Paramount Diner (60%)
The case describes the Paramount: a 44-seat diner in the Beacon Hill neighbourhood of Boston, Massachusetts.
The restaurant is a popular favourite among locals and tourists particularly for brunch on weekends, when queues can stretch down the street.
The case study focuses on the restaurant’s unusual seating policy and a recent increase in the popularity of carryout orders.
The purpose of this case study are threefold: firstly, to critically evaluate the Theory of Swift Even Flow and to apply it to a practical situation; secondly, to provide students the opportunity to practice basic process analysis concepts, such as cycle time, throughput time, input rates, output rates, bottlenecks and utilization;; and thirdly, to enable students to consider the interrelationships between the design of an operation and the corresponding behaviours of customers and employees.
The Case Study Analysis is divided into four sections. Students are required to complete:
1. Process Analysis
a) Following the guidelines provided below, conduct a quantitative analysis of the restaurant operation to identify the bottleneck in the process and to calculate how long customers might have to wait to be served.
b) Explain how the unusual seating policy is an operations management tool.

Business analytics report
Use at least six different Objects from Tables, Graphs, Controls, Analytics, Containers and Content provided by SAS Visual Analytics.
Create a Business Intelligence (BI) report with at least three sections on operations (10%), marketing (10%) and finance (10%). This BI report should include key facts about company’s performance on a global and regional level. These facts should include both financial and marketing related data.
Decide on the appropriate visualization tool/type to use based on the data you choose, and information you intend to portray. How will these charts be perceived by a non- technical user? What questions he/she may ask and answer with it? (10%)
Make use of additional tools/functions such as global and local filters, text inputs, text content displays and images. (10%)
Your final BI report should be submitted as a PowerPoint presentation (5-7 slides max.).

Be very precise in you report, but do not omit valuable information. Don’t include data or unnecessary tables/statistics for
the sake of reaching the page length requirement. If you include tables, refer to them in your writing. would like to see
how this information is helping you answer the question or reach a conclusion.
The conclusion must be supported by data and the best possible statistical test whenever available.
Provide step-by-step answers to the questions asked. Show formulas, variable values, and the answers you get.
Always interpret numbers, even if it is not specifically asked for in the questions.
For hypothesis testing, write the hypothesis, test statistics (showing all calculations), critical value or p value (providing details on how you find it), statistical conclusion, and practical conclusion.
Unless otherwise stated in the questions, use a significance level of 5% in the analysis.
Instructions for ANOVA Questions
Indicate what variables you are using and which types of variables they are.
Mention which type of ANOVA test you are performing.
Explain why the test you are using is the best test for the given situation.
Provide the ANOVA table, and explain the results.
If the factors are significant, perform a post-hoc test, provide test results, and interpret the results.
Include a conclusion as well as implications of the test results.
If you are performing more than one ANOVA test in the same question, discuss the points above only for significant test results. Only provide the p value for insignificant test results.
If you are performing just one ANOVA test in the given question, discuss the results in detail.
Instructions for Regression Questions
Explain which variables you are using and which types of variables they are.
Explain the context of the data collection and how each variable is measured.
Explain for each independent variable what type of relationship (e.g., positive, negative, or no relationship) that you are anticipating with the dependent variable and provide a logical reasoning for it.
If the regression involved more than one iteration in arriving at the final model, use the following table to briefly summarize all iterations and then discuss the points below (a through e) only for the final iteration.

The European Union legislation called the “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) provides data privacy protections for consumers and has had a major impact on companies around the world.
In your initial post, address the following as part of your response:
• What are the general requirements and major impacts of the GDPR, and how does this law differ from data protection legislation in the United States?
• How are companies outside of Europe affected by the GDPR?
• How do perspectives on the GDPR differ between consumers and businesses? Do perspectives vary by industry?
• Do you think there should be one data privacy law for the entire world? Balance your discussion by weighing the benefits to international companies with your knowledge of the differences in culture, politics, and government around the world and the importance of sovereignty of countries.
In your responses to two or more of your peers, use the following questions to guide your responses:
• Consider how the principles of globalization can be applied to the harmonization of data privacy laws. Do you expect legislation similar to the GDPR to be passed by other countries around the world? Why or why not?
• Do you agree or disagree with your peer’s opinion on whether there should be global data privacy legislation? Why or why not?
• How could your response to the harmonization of data privacy laws apply to other regulatory areas (such as accounting)
