Examination Paper of Organizational Behaviour
M/s. ABC Ltd is a medium-sized engineering company producing a large-range of product lines
according to customer requirements. It has earned a good reputation as a quick and reliable supplier to
its customers because of which its volume of business kept on increasing. However, over the past one
year, the Managing Director of the company has been receiving customer complaints due to delays in
dispatch of products and at times the company has to pay substantial penalty for not meeting the
schedule in time. The Managing Director convened an urgent meeting of various functional managers
to discuss the issue. The marketing manager questioned the arbitrary manner of giving priority to
products in manufacturing line, causing delays in wanted products and over-stocking of products which
are not required immediately. Production Control Manager complained that he does not have adequate
staff to plan and control the production function; and whatever little planning he does, is generally
overlooked by shop floor manager. Shop floor managers complained of unrealistic planning, excessive
machine breakdowns, power failure, and shortage of materials for scheduled products because of which
it is impossible to stick to the schedule. Maintenance manager says that he does not get important spares
required for equipment maintenance because of which he cannot repair machines at a faster rate.
Inventory control manager says that on one hand the company often accuses him of carrying too much
stock and on other hand people are grumbling over shortages. Fed up by mutual mud-slinging, the
Managing Director decided to appoint you, a bright management consultant with training in business
management to suggest ways and means to put his “house in order”.
Questions:1. What would you suggest to avoid delays in dispatch of products?
2. What action should be taken by various functional managers to meet the scheduled dates?
