Project #23705 - BMGT DISCUSSION

Part of the course material this week is a video on BMW, How BMW Deals With an Aging Workforce  (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/how-bmw-deals-with-an-aging-workforce/).    This video demonstrates several aspects of BMW business model within one area of the business.  First, BMW is invested in their workforce.  These efforts address the social contract BMW has within Germany, shows care for its workforce, and addresses issues of operations management because of the aging workforce and the fact that there are enough younger people to replace the aging population of workers.  It is easy to see how BMW oversees the process of transforming resources into an exceptional vehicle.

The BMW video demonstrates one aspect of operations management of a manufacturing organization.  Watch the following video, Case Study: Operation Management - Chapter 2  ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVeg4MWOuxE) This video actually looks at a company that provides service and directly points out the various aspects of operations management that have contributed to the success of this long-standing company.

Activity:  Select a company for which you are familiar.  Describe what this company has done from an operations management standpoint that has impacted the way the company now does business.  You cannot use any of the companies identified in the Exploring Business but you can find a video or other material to supplement what you write in your response.
