Nirali 1 Patel MGT 560 operations and supply management Question 1: Compare Wyatt's buffalo hunting to the approach used by the old timers? In older times, there was standard way of hunting. The buffalo hunter would typically have five four-horse wagons, with one driver, the stock tender, camp watchman, and cook; and four others to skin the kill. The hunter would provide horses, wagons, and supplies for several months. They would used Sharps "Fifty" rifle for shooting, which had capabilities for shooting at long range but it was quiet expensive and very heavy. The hunter would go to an area where they had a good view of the heard, and start shooting one buffalo at a time, if the slug went true, the animal would drop in his tracks or stagger a few steps and fall. This would means that lot of people were needed for entire hunting process. Obviously the costs of maintenance of rifles were high as it had to soak in water after every second shot. While Wyatt used one wagon, four animals for harness, and one for which he could ride. He brought along with him only one experienced skinner, who would also do the work of driving and cooking. Wyatt would help the skinner with the skinning of the kill. Wyatt made an agreement with his skinner to split the profits of the hunt, with himself keeping the team and wagon afterwards. He used a shotgun for shooting which 2 made him have to get closer to the heard but it also allowed him to fire rapidly with no harm to the gun. He would set up an area, and shoot one buffalo at a time stopping when he shot all that he and his skinner could handle in one day, and before the heard got a scent of blood and break into a stampede. He would then work the heard away quietly by waving his coat and shouting, moving heard the in the direction that he wanted them to go. After the herd left the area, he and his skinner would work together to skin the kill for the day. Question 2: What are the key elements of business success from an operations perspective? The key elements of business success from an operations perspective are designing the system, planning for the system and managing the system. While Wyatt studied the system of older times, he gave a different approach; he very well planned for the hunting and managed the process of hunting according to his plans. He balanced the quality quantity with reduced amount of resources, rate of hunting, price and flexibility. Wyatt was able to balance effectiveness and efficiency which are important concept in operation management. Question 3: Relate these ideas to Wyatt's approach. 3 Wyatt was able to increase his competence compared to other hunters by reducing how much he spent on his expenses. By having five horses, one wagon, and one other person with him he was spending a lot less on expenses as compared to hunters in older times. He also figured out that instead of making kills till the herd stampeded off to an unknown destination, he shot enough only for one day's work, and then gently moved the heard into the direction he wanted to go in, making it quicker for him to find the herd the next day, therefore increasing rate of hunting. He helped the skinner for skinning process thus reducing the manpower. Question 4: Were the buffalo hunters irresponsible in killing off the great buffalo herds as they did? I feel Buffalo hunters were highly irresponsible in killing off the great buffalo herds as they did because it was not only loss to nature imbalance but also the possible extinction of buffalos.
