You will prepare a 500 word written document for this section in which you will critically consider the operational practices of your allocated case and make recommendations for future operational practices.
In section 3 you must present your work in three subsections which are as follows:
3.1 Introduction ~ Briefly introduce the context of the case and then outline the most obvious operational challenges from the perspective of the digital economy, digital readiness; capacity and supply chain management. Cite case reference.
3.2 Operations in practice ~ Next you will outline the examples of operational practices of digital readiness; capacity and supply chain management, as they are evident within the case context. This needs to be undertaken specifically in relation to how operational functions are developing and changing in the digital economy; linking to the points that you have made in section 3.1. Here you will also show that you understand the current operational capacity levels within the allocated case and the significance of the role of capacity and supply chain management. References are required.
3.3 Developing digital operations capability ~ Finally, you will provide recommendations in relation to how the case organisation can meet the future operational challenges that you have identified in section 3.1. You should use academic sources to support the points that you are making about how to conduct operations management in this context. You should finish with clear points drawn from the argument and bring the work to a constructive end. References are required.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR SECTION 3 WRITTEN CASE REVIEW This section requires you to carefully consider how theories of operations management are put into practice, particularly from the digital operations perspective.
