Instructions: For this activity, you will apply the concepts of operations management to real world situations. You will use this unit to begin developing an operation management plan by writing a 2-3 page paper on a business concept of your choosing. You may wish to develop a business such as a retail sales operation, an online service like tutoring, or maybe a personal service such as lawn care or pet grooming as your business. Use the information from Unit 1 to help you identify what aspects are to be covered and explain, in detail, why you made certain choices. In writing your paper, you should research and consider at least 2 outside resources (i.e. textbooks, scholarly articles from a peer reviewed journal, etc.) As you write the paper, make sure to address the following topics:
Will the company be business-to-consumer or business-to-business?
Will the business manufacture a product, deliver a service, broker information, offer goods for sale, or distribute goods for others?
Will the business offer one product or service, or a range of products and services?
Will the company have a bricks-and-mortar presence, or sell strictly over the Web?
Will the firm be a large company, a medium-sized enterprise, or a small business?
How will you provide /transport the service or product to the consumer?
Will there be a need for inventory storage?
