Key Assignment Draft
Both the operations manager and the warehouse manager have been
impressed with your argument in making a case of supply chain management and
quality management within the company. The operations manager in your
department wants you to conduct a formal presentation to him and the rest of
the floor staff to highlight the benefits of supply chain management. He has
over 30 years of operational management experience with the company, and he is
skeptical of any change. He has never used any type of supply chain management
techniques or tools, but found your discussion on supply chain interesting. The
warehouse manager has also expressed interest in having you conduct a similar
presentation with a focus on quality management for his department and staff
member at a later date. This is your opportunity to really pitch the advantages
of implementing supply chain management and for designing a quality assurance process
for these two departments within your company.
Develop a compelling presentation to the operations
manager that will explore the benefits of implementing supply chain
management on his floor.
