Module 3 – SLP


Assignment Overview

Delivery Technology

A drone delivery service in Iceland was the first of its kind in 2017. Before that, Amazon did drone delivery trials in England in 2016. In 2019, a press release appeared announcing prescription deliveries from different pharmacies. UPS announced it received the FAA’s first full approval for a drone airline. On the ground, driverless delivery vehicles are slated to deliver for Walmart, and Ford wants a two-legged robot to make deliveries in the future. Sometimes the news of automated delivery is damaging and other times forward-thinking.

Begin with the SLP background readings to learn about what’s happening in delivery. Then move to expert or consultant publications written within the past three years. You must include technology that links the modes of delivery with the rest of the supply chain.

SLP Assignment

Provide a well-balanced assessment of what is required for high-tech delivery according to the readings and information from at least two experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include two different strategies/requirements, including coverage of costs/risks. The final section of the project must include a well-researched discussion of technology links (software, programs, etc.) that ensure transparency and control within the chain.

NOTE: No resources should be more than three years old for this Case because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in the third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see Differences Between First and Third Person. The excessive use of quotes or unoriginal content will directly impact performance since it suggests lack of comprehension and indicates that a student may not have mastered the concepts.
