Q1. Write a brief report that outlines the reasons (both internal and external) for Burgmaster demise, and whether operations management played a significant role in the demise.
Because of the recent death of the owner, the trust department of a Milwaukee Bank (as trustee for the state) has taken over the company’s affairs and has appointed a new company president. The new president has identified many problem areas—one of which is improper inventory control. He has retained you as a consultant to make specific recommendation concerning a revised inventory control system. What are your recommendations and their rationale?
a) Was Linderman Industries’ adoption of project organization an appropriate one for getting the Mexican subsidiary started?
b) In consideration of Robert Linderman’s letting the division managers know that the project manager would be asking for some of their key people, why would Conway have any difficulty in getting the ones he wanted?
c) Would you expect that many people would turn down a chance to join a project organization, as Bert Mill did?
d) Why would Conway take his problem with the engineering vice president to Linderman and have it resolved in his favor, yet back down in two disputes with the manufacturing vice president?
e) What could Linderman Industries have done to assure good jobs for the people coming off Project Mexicano, including Carl Conway, the project manager?
f) If you were the manager, which option would you select? Why? Explain the disparity between the results for the two options. What assumptions did you make in your analysis?
