Note from Professor:
As you think about this week’s assignment, think of a few of your favorite products. Things that perhaps you feel you cannot live without or things that you feel are not the best products. Spend a little time researching the production or manufacturing process around those. What steps are involved? How do you feel that step might add value? Do they focus on quality? Do they focus on user experience? Is your expected use of the product in line with their intended use? There are so many interesting ways that companies’ processes deliver the goods and services that we use day in and day out. As an Operations Manager, you are required to help manage and drive the process.
