  • Heath Wolmarans South Africa Both Manufacturing and Service Organisations are similar in that they face similar challenges with regards to obtaining materials for use in their production process, determining suitable scheduling tasks and controlling productivity levels and end product quality. However, Service organisations provide a non-physical output that requires customer input in the processing, and Manufacturing organisations produce a physical output that can be stored or held in inventory.

  • Sylvester A. Clevermore Ghana The basic organizational structure of a manufacturing company follows the traditional hierarchical organizational structure, consisting of a Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Operations Officer (COO), department heads and then employees. The key functions of a manufacturing company include production, purchasing, marketing, Technical, accounting, and customer service.A service operation is an open transformation process of converting inputs (consumers) to desired outputs (satisfied consumers) through the appropriate application of resources (family, material, labor, information, and the consumer as well). More simply, services are economic activities that produce time, place, form, or psychological utility.
