I don’t understand this Management question and need help to study.
In this assignment analyse a production system (service or manufacturing based) with which you are familiar; a shop, restaurant, transport system, doctor’s surgery are all possible examples. Your tutor will give some guidance on your choice of organisation/case study. Your assignment should address the following questions:
- Critically appraise how well the inventories and/or assets within the production system are currently managed.
- Provide a detailed illustration of the key operations involved within your chosen production system presenting a logical operational flow.
- From the illustration in point two, identify two points where the organisation’s delivery system may fail to align its operational performance measures, clearly demonstrating your reasoning and understanding behind this.
- Discuss how a lean approach could be utilised in the production system to potentially reduce the failings discussed in point three.
- Identify three key findings discussing the extent to which the lean approach chosen may assist the production system with aligning its operational performance measures.
