You're two-for-two now. From what I gather, you're asking for help on a writing assignment about operations management and want to talk with people who are in this field. Is that correct?

1. Do your own assignments

2. Operations management, in a nutshell, as studied at the university level, is the process of monitoring, adjusting, and creating production processes in order to make them the most efficient that they can be. Unfortunatley, the question you ask, is refering to a theory, that is likely in a book, that you are trying to avoid actually reading. Lacking the ability to transmit the data through the mind, no one on this board is going to be able to answer your question as written.

I am certain I will not answer your question to your complete satisfaction but I have some insight. Those I work with in this space at a very large global organization typically apply no theory nor coherent strategy at all - indeed they instead use that which they've learned through experience to help guide them on how to manage operations - how to "put out fires" as they present themselves. Additionally, in my experience those given the operations management responsibility are typically (but not always) not very skilled at the tasks they oversee others completing. Instead it seems that operations management responsibility is pursued by and given to individuals who I would say could not really do anything else - they are more "project or team managers" than proven strategists or established top performers.

This is why top shelf operations management personel are paid so well, because there are so many idiots holding the title. This is also why politics are such a bottleneck to company performance.
