Independent Analysis Report Week 4 BUSN 460 OVERVIEW Conducting an Independent Analysis Report for the Can Go Company OBSERVATIONS Week 3 Case 1 1. “It is clear that Jack and Warren are not satisfied with the current process layout, and that’s why  they are considering some technology investments to improve process flows. 2. In operations, we often view process choices as a continuum, with two extremes. At one end are  intermittent processes, often referred to as job shops. Job shops are characterized by their  flexibility. Tools tend to be general and workers tend to be skilled, allowing them to make a wide  range of products or deliver a wide range of services. 3. Modern technology has allowed some of these distinctions to blur, giving more efficiency to  intermittent processes and more flexibility to continuous or repetitive processes 4. Financial criteria like net present value or internal rate of return are seldom sufficient on their own.  One of the major benefits of technologies such as bar-coding and ASRS is the increased  flexibility that they provide. 5. The tangible impact of such benefits may not be seen immediately, but in future capabilities or  products. This can be a definite strategic advantage, as Jack implies in the video.” ISSUES 1. In the first video week 3 as stated above :”  It is clear that Jack and Warren are not satisfied  with the current process layout, and that’s why they are considering some technology  investments to improve process flows.” 2. “Financial criteria like net present value or internal rate of return are seldom sufficient on their  own.
