Manipal Power Laundry: Washing Out of Business
The owner of Manipal Power Laundry asked his nephew, an MBA student, for advice on the business. The company's operational inefficiencies had led to high operating costs over time. Coupled with regulatory price caps, the situation made the business unsustainable. The owner asked his nephew to provide a solution that would benefit the company both in the short term and over the long term. After observing the various processes, collecting data, and interviewing employees, the nephew decided to use process flow analysis to help the company optimize its operations.
