Background

 
5IB002 – Assignment Scenario. “ Challinor’s” is a small manufacturing enterprise(SME) in the West Midlands which manufactures actuators for the aerospace industry. While they had suffered during the recession they did keep trading. Because they had a good reputation in the aerospace industry(where quality is a major safety issue) they have been offered a contract with a major automobile manufacturer within the region. If this works well it will mean a major increase in business and overall profit and it will mean that they are able to supply within a much broader market to reduce their dependence on just one sector.
 
Their existing premises are near Birmingham (near Edgbaston) and have some capacity to increase floor-loading but not a lot if they carry on working in the way they have traditionally worked. The CEO organised a directors’ meeting to look at the possible options for them. The Logistics Director suggested that they use one of his managers to facilitate the meeting.

From the meeting a SWOT analysis was developed as figure 1 as a starting point for a follow up session to try and develop the company’s strategy.
 

Strengths
Weaknesses
Produce a quality product.Have a good workforce of experienced engineers  Centre of the country.

Have space to develop the new contract.

Only work within Aerospace at the moment.May over engineer products

We do not have an operations management based IT system to manage work flow, we only have manual systems.

Existing IT systems are standalone, for Finance/Pay, and Inventory and Logistics

If the new automobile contract works well that will use up all existing space in the factory, and already there is sign of the aerospace market increasing.

Opportunities
Threats 
The new I54 manufacturing and innovation site near Telford has good road access to our main aerospace customers and the new automobile manufacturer.

There is EU money available to develop businesses within the West Midlands

If we cannot make the contract work it would weaken the company.Increased traffic around the existing site is extending our lead times and associated costs.

If we relocate we cannot be sure that our workforce will want to move .

If we do not expand the business someone else is likely to expand into the market for us.

We cannot be sure about our existing market.

If we take out large loan from the bank they could interfere with the business or call the loan in.

 
At the next meeting the CEO explained that the automobile manufacturer had agreed to provide training to develop lean skills in the workforce. The local development board agreed to provide background information and videos to explain what is going on in the region for the workforce. The HR Director agreed to use one of his IT staff to outline the information needs for an integrated IT system, starting with understanding of the Information needed for the Customer Relationship Management system, and to suggest options about more up to-date approaches including use of RFID technology
 
The Operations Director has asked her transport co-ordinator to provide a brief about the supply chain issues around the existing site and the option for moving to Telford, this should include a view of supplier and customer issues.
 
She said the information would be provided as a table, but the detail will need to be provided and analysed for impact. She also thought it would be useful if the lean training was provided to all staff, not just operations.
 
The CEO decided that report should cover: the use of lean concepts in manufacturing and administration(service) and what key issues we have, how the key lean tools were used, what the relevance was for the board of directors, and what are the quality standard issues; what the supply chain implications are if we move or stay; and how an integrated it system would help. He also asked for a work breakdown structure and a risk matrix for a project to implement a computer module for a CRM, as part of an integrated IT system, as part of a report, to discuss the feasibility of the project, and highlight the pros and cons involved.
