The paper “ How the Use of the Operations Management and Production Has Led to the Success of Turbo Company” is an impressive example of the case study on marketing. Production and operations management plays an important role in determining the success of a production company. Different types of goods undergo different production processes. This also depends on the quality of the goods required. It is also important to note that various tools and equipment are used during the production process. The type of tools and equipment used determines the quality of the finished products (Melville, 2010).
Technology plays an important role in the manufacturing and production process. The use of modern technology is increasingly becoming common during the production process and the production process depends on the efficiency of handling the inventory. This determines the capacity of a company to satisfy the demands of the customers. The demand of the customers also determines the capacity that a company should produce. However, it is important to note that a company will always face challenges when trying to satisfy the customers.
The changes, in most cases, affect the operation of the company in terms of finance and production. The paper critically discusses the production and operation management at Turbo Exhausts Company. DiscussionTurbo exhaust utilizes several production methods for the purposes of meeting the demands of the customers. The made-to-stock production process is utilized by the company in terms of satisfying the demand of some of the customers. This became common for the company after some customers with street cars became interested with the services of the company. This was an opportunity for the growth of the company and it embarked on this type of production process.
In type of production, goods are usually manufactured and the customers purchase the already finished products without placing their order. This concept is being used by the company and it has led to the customer satisfaction. However, it has had some impacts on the capacity of the company. The company has been forced to hire a warehouse for storing some of the already finished products and others that are still undergoing the production process.
