Operations management

Closed

Conduct a research into a named organization that offers a range of services or products (or a single service or product). Using this information and combining it with academic input to underpin your statements, present a report to discuss:

a. Which of the five approaches to quality (i.e. the transcendent, user-based, product-based, manufacturing-based or value-based) do you consider to be the most appropriate in describing this organization? [You should explain your conclusions by linking to the supporting theory on these approaches together with information from the field research that you have gathered].

b. Identify the quality of the products or services of this organization by looking at how well they perform across each quality characteristic (namely functionality, appearance, reliability, durability, recovery and contact). Through primary data collection and analysis, identify which of these characteristics are the most appropriate in this situation.

c. What aspects of the Total Quality Management (TQM) philosophy could this organization apply to improve the quality of the products or services?
