Operations Management

The Final Report

Word Count: 1550

Executive Summary

Our core purpose to create value for customers to earn their lifetime loyalty and provide quality (Tesco plc). Clearly states its values and what Tesco believes in to have a successful business; it opened its first stores in 1929 founded by Jack Cohen. The report explains and evaluates the operation functions such as Quality and what Tesco do to maintain quality, Tesco set their own standards for quality. They haven't yet implemented a quality system such as Total Quality Management and IS0900. There are four types of layout but Tesco is mainly cornered with Cell Layout it groups similar departments together; most stores are similar laid out however some do contrast. Tesco is influenced by a variety of factors when it comes to location. Three appendices have been attached they include input-process-output Diagram, Flow process Diagram and Cause and Effect diagram, Illustrating a quality problem. Conclusions have been given about how well they have done even without a quality system in place but I have recommended if they do that it would greatly benefit them overall.
