For your term project, you are going to develop a purchasing technical manual for a new manager in your organization (whether actual or hypothetical). The purchasing manual will instruct the newly hired manager in carrying your policies and procedures for ordering, receiving, storage, inventory control, and the issuing of food.
Your writing will need to have separate sections for the following, which are clearly and adequately discussed, including describing optimum conditions and developing strategies for overcoming identified challenges, as well as references course material and external sources;
1. Introduction to the company and job role of purchasing manager
5. Inventory control (count and distribution)
Each section will need to have at least one reference to a supporting article or document, your textbook for example (which will demonstrate research). You must have at least one additional, external resource other than your textbook.
A final element is that the manual should include at least 2 different product specifications used as examples in the writing. Include copies of the specification in an Appendix.
