This is a two-part discussion question. Please answer both sets of questions (Resource Management & International Opportunities) with a detail response. I have attached Exhibit 13.3 to this post to give you some insight on the topic of Resource Management.
- Select a goods-producing organization and a service-providing organization of your choice. Suggest ways each organization can make aggregate planning decisions using the variables described in Exhibit 13.3(Example Aggregate Planning Variables & Revenue/Cost Implications) in the textbook.
- Compare and contrast the operational and managerial impacts of the aggregate planning decisions in terms of customer satisfaction.
- Determine why, given the advantages of international diversification, some firms choose not to expand internationally. Provide specific examples to support your response.
- As firms attempt to internationalize, they may be tempted to locate their facilities where business regulation laws are lax. Discuss the advantages and potential risks of such an approach, using specific examples to support your response.
