The company chosen is ALDI (competitor analysis should be a part of it)
Each group member is required to identify the critical issues related to operations management based on your selected company. Providing supportive resources, including primary or secondary data from the selected firm, would be useful to describe the problems you identified in the context of the material covered in the course. The report should be written concisely and structured in the following way:
1.Organisation selection– this section briefly describes background research and the organization identified.
2.Problem identification and analysis– this part mainly identifies the issues faced by the organization. The adoption of an appropriate method/technique/framework for analysis, etc.
3.Recommendation/Implementation– (i)Achievements obtained the organisation, that is, a brief description of what it looks like to excel in the selected topic(s) of Operations Management. Present this with as many visual illustrations as possible and add quantifiable outcomes (e.g. dollar savings, lead time reduction, quality improvement, throughput increase, moral enhancement, etc). (ii) Action plan or implementation approach followed by each organisation in order to achieve this level of excellence. That is, the set of activities (work packages) planned and completed by management in each of the organisations –This is the most important part of the presentation and where most of the focus should be placed. The use of a Gantt chart or similar visual display is highly recommended. This section should also include challenges encountered and tactics used by management in order to overcome these challenges.
4.References and appendices– it goes without saying that when you use resources for your work they must be appropriately acknowledged and cited in this section. Elsewhere, you have been provided with a list of journals and other relevant sources of material relevant to Operations Management.
Out of all the topics attached have to choose only 2 topics.
DO NOT CHOOSE TOPIC 6 AND 7(Supply chain design and collaboration)
