Select a service sector organization and a manufacturing sector organization. Describe operations management for each organization in terms of the supply chain; the value-creating processes of operations; the value provided by operations to customers; and the relationship between operations and the overall mission of the organization. Then compare and contrast operations management in these two organizations.

(To help you differentiate between a service sector organization and a manufacturing sector organization for purposes of this assignment, note the following:

A service sector organization may provide some manufactured products with its services. For example, a patient receiving surgical services may also receive titanium pins in his or her knee. Similarly, a manufacturing sector organization may include some services with its products. For example, a plane manufacturer may include a pilot training course with a new plane.

In each case, however, either the service or product element is a dominant part of the overall value provided to the customer. This is why surgery is considered to be in the service sector and airplane manufacturing is considered to be in the manufacturing sector.

Another way of looking at this is that a “good” is tangible and has physical properties, whereas a “service” is intangible and has no physical properties.)
