The Operation Plan
This chapter from "Managing the Double Bottom Line" is intended to help you construct an operations or production plan. It includes situational analyses to help you set sound targets by examining your current operations process, capacity, and productivity. You will analyze human resources, equipment, time and space needs, and their costs to formulate the plan.
The body of the operations plan is a series of strategies aimed at accomplishing your operations objectives, including plans for improving productivity, scheduling, information flows, inventory management, quality control, research and development, and a budget for your operating costs.
