  13. 13. Question 1 Some Causes:•Design: this activity takes too long, of coursecustomer relationship is very important, but ideaclarification can reduce time consuming.•Purchase row materials: this activity also is timeconsume. They can decline the process time by a goodpurchase planning.
  14. 14. Question 1 Some Causes:•Mold fabrication: this process itself takes just three tofive days whereas, because of bad planning thisactivity may take four weeks.•Testing: high volume of defective parts shows theweak testing activity

  17. 17. Question 2Competitive Priorities of the fabrication process: •Quality • Cost • Lead-time • Flexibility
  18. 18. Question 2Competitive Priorities of the plastic part: •Quality • Cost • Lead-time • Flexibility
  19. 19. Question 2 Changing the Nature of the Industry:It needs have changed for both processes in mold fabrication, there isa need to make very small batches of many different design. in partsfabrication, there is a need to make largebatches of the same design, longer runson the same settings. The demand forproduction of molds is slowly decliningwhile the demand for parts is increasing.
  20. 20. Question 3
  21. 21. Question 3 Alternatives:•Short term to resolve day-to-dayoperational problems that would makeimmediate performance improvements•Medium-term decisions require more in-depth change and it would be more costly•Long-term strategic operational decisionswhich require tight integration withorganization’s objectives
  22. 22. Question 3 Short Term Alternatives:•Improve scheduling to reduce operating anddelivery time•Using software Programmed•Improving supplier relationship to reduce thetime of receiving materials•Designate quality supervisor in charge of moldfabrication•More oversight on testing and inspection•Separate the master machinist from the designer•Forecast the future orders and needed row materials
  23. 23. Question 3 Medium Term Alternatives:•focus on the supplier relationshipthrough supply chain management• methodologies.•Reorganize plant layout andprocesses•Focus on machinery and invest inbuying the new machinery
  24. 24. Question 3 Long Term Alternatives:•Updating the mission and goals ofthe company•Invest in new equipments or evennew firm•Invest in R&D
