Touro University Richard Gonzalez OPM 300 Module 2 Session Long Project Dr. George Marron The purpose of this paper is to integrate the concepts and operations management principles learned during module two and discuss how process selection and capacity planning influence other departments and functions of International Business Machine (IBM) such as marketing, finance, accounting, human resources, etc. In addition, I will label and describe some of the operations management related to the terms in this module. IBM’s process selection can be described as both, intermittent operations and continuous operations. Their process selection is intermittent because they are capable of producing a large variety of product designs in relatively low and large volumes. The company is also capable of producing one or few standardized designs in very high volumes. Examples of intermittent operations are chip-making technologies. During the last eight years, IBM has introduced five revolutionary chip-making technologies: high-speed copper wiring, silicon-on- insulator technology, silicon germanium chips, low-k dielectric insulation, and “strained” silicon. On the continuous operations side one example can be their laptop computers line. Currently, IBM carries a line of laptop computer designs that are produced in very high volumes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
