Assessment #3 – Critical Analysis of an Organisation (Graded)
Select an organisation (either your current employer or one that you are able to access primary or secondary information from).

Identify and describe any three (3) operational issues/challenges facing the organisation and how these issues may impact on the supply chain. You are also required to critically review the identified issues and suggest recommendations to overcome these issues. Some examples of operational issues/challenges (although this list is not exhaustive) include:

Goods and services design: Designing goods and services defines much of the transformation process. Costs, quality and human resource decisions are often determined by design decisions.

Quality: The customer’s quality expectations must be determined; and policies and procedures established to identify and achieve that quality.

Process and capacity planning: Process options are available for products and services. Process decisions commit management to specific technology, quality, human resource use and maintenance. These expenses and capital commitments will determine much of the firm’s basic cost structure.

Location selection: Facility location decisions for both manufacturing and service organisations may determine the firm’s ultimate success. Errors made at this juncture may overwhelm other efficiencies.

Layout design: Material flows, capacity needs, personnel levels, technology decisions and inventory requirements influence layout.

Human resources and job design: People are an integral and expensive part of the total system design. The quality of work life provided, the talent and skills required and their costs must be determined.

Inventory and resource management: These decisions can be optimised only when customer satisfaction, suppliers, production schedules and human resource planning are considered.

Scheduling and maintenance: Feasible and efficient schedules for production must be developed; the demands on human resources and facilities must be determined and controlled.

Innovation, technology and knowledge management: Technology, information and communication systems

Logistics and distribution: Logistics encompass the flow of materials, information and money. How these aspects are effectively managed will determine supply chain effectiveness.

Risk management: Risk factors are apparent globally (such as petrol price hikes, currency fluctuations, natural calamities, political events, terrorism, regulation, technology shifts, etc) and have operational implications for Supply chains.

Environmental awareness and sustainability: Sustainability encompasses economic, environmental and social considerations. These issues impact on the mix of operational strategies and practices.

You are required to cite at least TEN (10) references in the report using the Harvard referencing system, including at least SIX (6) academic journal articles. An omission to include six academic journal articles or incorrect use of the Harvard referencing system will result in a failure for the Referencing component (worth 10 marks).

Format – the argument will be presented in a report format. Suggested headings to be used include executive summary, contents page, introduction, operational issues/challenges, key findings and recommendations. The objective of this assignment is to enable you to situate yourself in and critically analyse the facts of the organisation, the situation and to present your analysis and recommendations in a report which is convincing, well supported and within word constraints.
