Overall operations management of a plant

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.
The Board of Directors of ABC Complete Kitchens, Inc., wants you to give them an overview presentation regarding the management of the new plant. Specifically, the Board of Directors wants you to describe and analyze key management aspects of the plant, including the workforce hiring processes, operations management, and the workforce management.

1. Develop a PowerPoint presentation for this assignment that includes the hiring strategies for the new manufacturing plant for a presentation to be delivered to the Board of Directors of ABC Complete Kitchens, Inc.

Within the presentation, you must describe and analyze the following key business environment considerations relative to this new manufacturing plant:

a. Workforce planning and recruitment considerations
b. Job performance and job satisfaction considerations relative to employee retention

Length: 10-12 slides (with a separate reference slide) with 100 -150 words per slide. Additional notes for the PowerPoint slides can be included in the notes section.

2. Develop a job posting that can be used on a job search site for an hourly employee OR supervisor. You only need to create one job posting for one of the positions.
Length: 1 page job posting (app. 350 words per page)

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style. Make sure your presentation follows good PowerPoint design principles (e.g., readable font, uses one template, one-inch borders around the slides) and contains transitions, builds, and animation when appropriate.
