The purpose of this assignment is to examine the issues and trends in operations management and how that in turn affects an organisation’s SIPOC.

Present the current Supplier-Input-Process-Output-Customer (SIPOC) of your organisation. Identify the emerging issues or trends that would potentially impact your organisation. Evaluate its implications on your SIPOC. Offer plausible recommendations to overcome the issues or exploit the opportunities
