Length and format: Work sheets from below, and a paper no less than 400 words in length.
The dominant theme of supply chain management is the achievement of operational integration. The benefits from operational integration are directly related to CAPTURING EFFICIENCIES BETWEEN FUNCTIONS within an enterprise as well as ACROSS ENTERPRISES in a supply chain.
Having noted this, let’s take a closer look at a business you’re familiar with, and come up with a plan!
Select either a business where you currently work, worked previously, or even select Post University.
- Make sure you identify what you are covering!
- Complete the inputs for the questions below based on either your work, or school. Each section is based on a different facet of the organization, so the hope is the business is covered as a whole.
- Then comment on the overall outlook for that business as it relates to integrated operations planning. Does it function well, or is there a need for improvement? Where is that improvement needed, and what would you do, based on this week’s readings, to effect change? Be sure to include your worksheet from below with the assignment!
