MGMT 411 Unit 5 Indvidual project 2

  

Deliverable Length: 

2-3 pages

It is time for you to finalize your findings for your boss. He is expecting your analysis of your division’s operations and to produce a plan to improve operations with an eye for reducing costs.

Your boss wants you to summarize your recommendations in no more than 2–3 pages. Include your thoughts on the list below. Should      production remain in Mexico or be brought back to the United States?  If so,       where would you recommend? Is the       quality of production a consideration because of cheaper labor in Mexico? Could the       quality of production be managed and monitored better if it was in the       United States?  Do       transportation costs play a big enough factor to consider moving back to       the United States?  Should the      product distribution network be changed? For example:  Production       in Mexico, central warehouse (NAW) in St. Louis, regional distribution       centers in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, Colorado, and California. Close NAW,       ship from Mexico directly to regional distribution centers listed in       letter “a” above. Close NAW,       create a new central warehouse in Texas near the Mexico plant, ship to       regional distribution centers in letter “a” above (with a       distribution center in St. Louis/Chicago region). Close NAW,       create a new central warehouse in Texas near the Mexico plant, ship       directly to customers. Hire a       professional distribution company to handle       distribution.     Can the      sales forecast process be improved? If so, how?
