Business – operations management questions

Welcome to your job Interview!!! We have been looking for an Operation’s Manager for quite some time. I am glad to hear that you took the course at STU. Let me ask you a couple of scenarios to see how you would react to them.

We have eight water heaters in the building. One unit leaked and damaged the floor around it but stopped operations for a day. Cost to fix the damage:

$1,000 unit and labor

A full day of work!!!

We know that Water heaters do not tend to leak for the first three years.

You looked for records of the day of purchase of the unit that leaked and no records.

If you would have replaced it a week ago would have cost you $300 and no shutdown of operations.
