  • Outline the essential components for ‘effective business operations management’ (creating value for the customer) for Ocado’s operation within the UK.
  • Use a soft systems methodology to evaluate the issues Ocado might face if they decide to introduce hybrid facilities to allow their customers to continue ‘order goods online and have these delivered to the door’ as well as opening new stores to compete in the market place (since the shock of Morrison joining forces with Amazon). Support your discussion with appropriate business operations models (i.e. operation strategy performance (priorities) model, customer value, the service gap model, four v’s profile etc.).
