You recently have been hired by a manufacturing company (ABC Complete Kitchens, Inc.) to develop the business framework and strategic plan for a new plant operation. The plant will open in six months within a Midwestern U.S. community. Your job is to develop the required tools, plans, policies, practices, and strategic operating framework for the plan so that the Board of Directors can take over operations once the plant opens.
The plant assembles and ships industrial kitchen equipment for restaurants associated with hotels and convention centers. The plant uses both supplier-produced parts and its own manufactured components for the kitchen equipment. Final products are packaged and ready for shipment at the plant.
At peak operation, which is estimated to take approximately 90 days once the plant opens, the plant will have a workforce of about 500 employees. The workforce includes hourly employees, supervisors, managers, and the executive staff.
The company has acquired an existing facility for the plant. Your job is to design and develop the business structure to include workforce management, financial and accounting systems, and the strategic integration plan for the new plant.
For this first written assignment (Activity #2 for SKS5000), your requirement is as follows.
