  • Tendai Tsvangura South Africa Operations management must have a vision, goal orientated, target driven and able to work under pressure, OM must make sure that during the operations functions must be carried out efficiently without any mistake, i,e doing the right thing first time. By providing products and services that are free defects and errors, ready and suitable for use by their respective clients, the business will gain a quality advantage. Higher quality not only means increase error free resulting in lower cost, but also an improved competitive position that could lead to higher price and greater market share.e. g Woolworth one of the most famous names, providing top quality food products for which certain customers are prepared to pay higher prices. (A manufacturer of television sets recently changed several effects in its local production plant, with one aim to increase its share in the cheaper market segment that for black and white television sets. The operations management had objectives of formulating television sets in conjunction with the most important customers requirements.)
