1. Executive Summary.
2. Introduction. include a summary of the organisation’s market positioning (keep this focussed upon how such positioning influences the nature of it operations).
3. Statement of Problem and Opportunity. 3.1 Operations management and performance (POs). Reflected in terms of POs: Performance objectives (POs) – Cost, Speed, Quality, Dependability, Flexibility (graph), represent the organization’s market positioning 3.2 Potential problems & opportunities. *Clear demonstration of a sophisticated, critical and thorough understanding of key operations process, management and performance issues as well as the internal and external context of problem /opportunity
4. Analysis of Problem & Opportunity.
4.1 Input-Transform-Outcome/Output (ITO) Model.
4.2 4V’s (Volume, Variety, Variation and Visibility).
4.3 Supply chain management.
4.4 Process Choice and Layout
4.5 4.3 Operation Strategy.
4.6 4.6 Inventory planning and control. *The section demonstrates excellence in the application of the tools and techniques of operations management to the pertinent problem/opportunity indicates whether you can articulate the operations of an organisation in terms of the tools and techniques explored during the course of this module. (Apply appropriate Operations Management tools and techniques to demonstrate how the organization converts inputs into desired outputs)
5. Recommendation on key observations.
5.1 Analysis. *The section demonstrates excellence in providing clear workable recommendations with critical evaluations including detailed accounts of relative merits, tradeoffs and constraints. Clear demonstration of a sophisticated, critical and thorough understanding of operations improvement concepts. Key observations on whether current operations are efficient or could be improved. This should flow naturally from the analysis of the organisation’s operations. (how it might improve its operations)
6. Implementations. *Clear and concise discussion of the proposed implementation plan, with detailed listing of potential barriers to the success of implementation.
9. Appendices. include any appropriate calculations, background data etc. Please limit the use of appendices and do not include pdf documents. Typically, appendices may include images of the operation and/or interview transcripts
