In this activity, you will continue working on your operations management plan by explaining techniques and methodologies for managing your organization’s productive resources. Learning Outcome: Explain techniques and methodologies for managing an organization’s productive resources. Specifications: 2-3 page paper Created in a Word document Follows APA, formatting Includes a Reference page for cited sources Instructions: For this activity, you will write a 2-3 page paper discussing ways in which your operations processes can help to generate “value” in the mind of the consumer. You may want to think like a marketer here as you can discuss the quality products you use to create the end item or the high level of dedication your organization’s employees display as they provide customer service. The use of technology can also be included in this discussion. For example, you may discuss a filmed tour of the manufacturing process or your service training as part of your advertising campaign. Use at least 2 outside sources to research and write about the methodologies that you use to manage your organization’s productive resources. In your paper, make sure that you address the following: Identify and assess any specific resources that will help support your operation management plan (i.e. employees, equipment or cash reserves your organization may have, etc.). Discuss promotional techniques you can use that will help create value in the consumer’s mind (i.e. you can talk about the durability of your product or any specialized customer service you put your employees through). Explain how any potential partnerships or other business relationships gives your product an edge of the competition (i.e. Tide partnered with Febreze to add their product to Tide’s laundry detergent to give clothes a fresh, clean scent added to the cleaning power of the detergent). After you have completed this part of the activity, you should combine your previous papers and this one, assembling the information into one final paper for a complete operations management plan. Make any revisions necessary once you combine the documents into one solid plan.
