This week you are preparing a scheduling methodology matrix for the production staff to use for scheduling when order contracts are produced. In your research look at the various scheduling methodologies available and pick the best one based on how Kibby and Strand conducts operations. The memo to the COO should inform him / her as to the purpose of the matrix and why the methodology selected is best for the organization.
In the matrix you want to list the common scheduling methodologies, and evaluate them to determine which works best for Kibby and Strand’s operational process. You can find the various scheduling methodologies using research and the most common ones are listed in Table 16.3 on page 702 of the textbook. Based on how Kibby and Strand prioritizes production orders for its contracts, a couple of these methodologies will stand out as better. Basically, you taking the reading from Chapters 5 and 6 and coupling that with research and Table 16.3 to build a matrix to evaluate various production scheduling methodologies.
Module 3, Forecasting and Contracts (Scenario) in Practice Operations. Based on their observations in this scenario, and upon a careful review of the available literature, the student is to consider him or herself to be the Production Manager of Kibby and Strand, the company in the scenario.
Formulate a scheduling methodology evaluation matrix for managing Kibby and Strand production based on incoming contracts. Specifically, the matrix should consider each of the scheduling methodologies discussed in Chapters 5 and 6, and evaluate their utility based on how Kibby and Strand runs its operations. Also prepare a memo to the COO describing the matrix and your conclusions regarding the best scheduling methodology to use within Kibby and Strand.
This matrix and memo should be prepared as a single Microsoft™ Word document, and then attached to the unit discussion thread. There is no minimum or maximum in terms of the word count; however, the response should explicitly address all required components of this discussion assignment. The document should be prepared consistent with the APA writing style (6th edition) and reflect higher level cognitive processing (analysis, synthesis and or evaluation).
Instruction Guidance: It would be prudent to consider content covered in chapters 5 and 6 of the textbook; however, there are many other useful resources available on the Internet and in the literature to support the construction of your action plan.
This plan should be prepared as a Microsoft™ Word document, and then attached to the unit discussion thread.
