Operations management

Otherwise, you will need to find a company that has made details of their internal operations available. It should not be too large an organisation (maybe less than 200 people) so that you can identify a clear and relatively simple problem. Typical problems you might search for include inventory, distribution, purchasing/supply chain management, quality management and sustainability. You will need to do some serious searching on the web to find a suitable source that provides detailed information (including some numerical information on the problem). You will find that there have been some detailed cases published which you may be able to use from either Harvard or Sloan. There is also a business case study journal. I know that some companies publish information on these types of issues when they had done of the investigation.Once you have done this, deconstruct the issue. Break down to its components and fundamental problems and then apply the analysis tools discussed in the unit (e.g. fishbone, pareto,… analysis), along with the theoretical concepts that apply to that particular problem area (e.g. capacity management).
