    Vincent Annan Ghana In a manufacturing environment, operations managers oversee the activities required to produce goods from raw materials. Issues managers in this environment face include managing the space to store raw materials, the flow of materials through the manufacturing process, how much product to produce and quality of output. In a service operation, operations managers schedule workers to handle customer demand. They must coach and train employees to provide optimal services to customers. Service operations that also sell physical goods also face inventory control issues, such as how much to stock and when to order.
