GDB Case

ZIMCO ELECTRONICS started their operations in electronics items during 2007 when the economy of Pakistan was growing at good pace. Keeping in view the preferences and needs of their customers, the company introduced different brands and invested heavily in Research and Development activities. Despite the huge amount of R&D budget, some divergence appeared between marketing and operations departments regarding the life cycle of 3 brands. Marketing department wanted to shorten the product life cycle while operations department wanted to make product life cycle longer to get maximum benefits from R&D expenses.

Expert opinions from both the departments were at opposing ends. Due to this, the matter was called upon by the Board of directors (BOD’s). A BOD’s meeting has been planned to resolve the issue. If you were invited at the meeting, what suggestions would you like to give to resolve this matter? You are preferably advised to restrict your suggestions to Operations only.
