3. Understand the role of information technology in supply chain management and explain the role of logistics in supply chain management in an organization 3.1. Assess how information technology assists integration of the components of the supply chain in Boeing As Boeing needs to continuously work with its partners regarding the manufacturing of the Boeing 787 Dreamliners, it needs an integrated information sharing method to fully coordinate the overall information chain. The first step is the information down flow from Boeing to its suppliers regarding its requirements, The second step is to make sure procurement and standard issues are communicated efficiently The third step involves the overall coordination in just in time procurement methods as well as overall manufacturing standards The fourth step is to integrate the finished components back to Boeing’s main facility The fifth step is to communicate necessary information regarding the arrival of eh components The sixth is to assemble the

This paper will analyze the strategic issues that guided TB Majestic Air now known as Trans-Caribbean Airways business decisions. As a team, we integrated the findings of strategic, environmental, and core business function while providing input in our decision making and planning. We used the results from our Period 4 to reassess previous decisions such as increasing our budget from $7,500 to $10,000 and increasing our maintenance level from 2 to 3 to operate at an optimum level in accordance with the size of our fleet. Lastly, our team made a decision venture into joint-venture with a major airline that allows all of our market to be listed with their computerized reservations system and schedules, permits for better scheduling for our

3.3 Radar Logic Figure 3 EFQM Radar logic graphic representation Figure 3 above shows the EFQM RADAR logic and the four steps needed to achieve it. An organisation using the EFQM framework needs to look at the Results it is striving to achieve and make sure the strategy is on course to realise them. An organisation should have a sound set of Approaches that can deliver the desired effects for its business both in the present and in the future. The approaches should be Deployed in such a way that they tie-in seamlessly with the organisations ultimate goals. The deployed approaches must then be Assessed and Refined after looking at the results gained, developing strategies going forward that can be carried over to future and existing projects.
Another socio-cultural factor is the fear of terrorist attacks. Example would be the recent ISIS attacks in France, Russia etc. With terrorist bombing, airline companies are affected by the number of passengers traveling overseas. This could cause a drastic change to Rolls Royce’s income. Urban countries that are affected by overcrowding of air-craft are asking for larger aircraft as larger aircrafts are more powerful.
The basic element that characterise the companies that utilise the mass service process is the high labour intensity combined with low level of interaction and customisation (Nickson,2007,p.12). Consequently, Ryanair in order to efficiently handle thousands of passengers daily it is necessary to use highly standardised services (Barnes, 2008, p.189). Additionally, Ryanair chooses to operate mass services process aiming to achieve economies of scale in order to maximise the margins. Figure 1 – The Service Process
