Powerpoint Presentation For Analyzing Sourcing, Production And Logistics


Dear New Operations and Supply Chain Management Team,
Last year, we had decided to begin operations in the office furniture business and began making these products overseas. These products are either made of wood or metal and are being sold to Retail Chain Stores in USA. You have to design a new system with:
1. Operations Management
2. Supply chain management
The reason to design a new system is because:

1. Some customers have been complaining of peeling paint, mismatched pieces, broken pieces, missing parts and late deliveries
2. Suppliers are not being able to maintain:
A. Quality
B. Cost
C. Delivery
a. Flexibility

Your job is to:
1. Pick one category of a product that is used in an office environment
2. Create a full supply chain cycle of these products
3. Work on Cause and Effect Analysis
4. Find innovative ways to save costs and time
5. Ensure steps to maintain quality

Please note the following:
A. The overseas operations can be any country of your choice
B. You need to step into the shoes of:
a. Sourcing Manager
b. Production Manager
c. Chief Information Officer
d. Logistics Manager

and analyze,
1. Country Specific Issues/Product Specific Issues/Consumer Trends
2. Commodity Prices/Manufacturing Reports/Economic Trends
3. Sourcing/Procurement/ Purchasing/ Logistics
4. Manufacturing issues/Material Handling/ Packaging Problems
5. Inventory and Transportation Management/ Multimodal Requirements
6. Global Supply Chain Trends/ Sustainability/Green Technologies
7. International Customs Laws, Regulations for shipping
8. Wholesale and Retail Layout of warehouses/stores
9. HR issues/Training and Hiring Requirements/Opportunities
10. Technology Applications/ERP/Tracking Technologies/
11. Risk Management/Insurance/Security/Safety/Terrorism/Piracy

And prepare a Powerpoint presentation which follows Gantt Charts, Critical Path Analysis, Value Analysis, Decision Tree and Software Applications


The question belongs to Operations Management and it is about preparing a Powerpoint Presentation describing Gantt Charts, Critical Path Analysis, Value Analysis, Decision Tree and Software Applications for analyzing sourcing, production, logistics, etc.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
