today is the last date of GDB so share your ideas

koi to start kara aj last date hai

yes is difference of job responsibility of production and operation and management production and industry

The key difference between service firms and manufacturers is the tangibility of their output. The output of a service firm, such as consultancy, training or maintenance, for example, is intangible. Manufacturers produce physical goods that customers can see and touch.

Service firms do not produce a service unless a customer requires it, although they design and develop the scope and content of services in advance of any orders. Service firms generally produce a service tailored to customers' needs, such as 12 hours of consultancy, plus 14 hours of design and 10 hours of installation. Manufacturers can produce goods without a customer order or forecast of customer demand. However, producing goods that do not meet market needs is a poor strategy.

As we know the difference between services and production industry. As far working in services industry with the intangible benefit either in it own right or as a significant element of a tangible item.Products are tangible and discernible items that the organization produce.
Mr. Kashif may face below challenges for moving from one industry to another industry.

1. Strategic Service Vision: Service levels refer to the important elements of the service to be provided, usually stated in terms of result produced for customers.
2. Service/Operation Delivery System: Focus area includes importatn element of the strategy: operations, financing, marketing, organization, human resources and control. Also the central service area along with the location of investment. (HR and TECH)
3. Facilities and equipment: Facilities in terms of HR and equipment in terms of technology.
4. Supplier: Suppliers who provide the raw material for finishing the goods to useable for useable. They should be one of the sources to provide required material to complete the tasks well on time.
5. Competition with Other Companies: As far concern to textile marketing, we have big fishes in our market so in start some one have to be consistent in his approach to stay in market and compete with other companies.
it might all wrong because i am in services industry and i feel these are some of the challenges while moving to production industry so be careful to copy that guys

According to my point of view Mr. Kashif will have to face these types of challenges while taking the charge of Production sector

strategical difference

technological change

competition among other organization

management style
