In the process of taking Inventory control classes for the MBA sem 1 students, this semester I have started the practise of giving case studies to students for reading and research offline and discussion in the class. So far I have finished Hard Rock cafe (op strategy), Apple (product design), Narayana Hrudayalaya (service design and strategy) and today I discussed American Apparels and their use of RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Devices) technology (Inventory management).
