Page 6: Conclusion
Because McDonald's has taken much of the hard work out of stock management, Restaurant Managers are able to spend more time focusing on delivering McDonald's high standards of Quality, Service and Cleanliness. Customers are happy because they can be sure the item they want is on the menu that day. Efficient stock management is essential to any business. It enables the business to operate in a responsible way.
The system also minimises waste. Efficient use of materials means that society's resources are being used well with very few waste products. For example, fewer materials end up as waste in landfill sites. This leads to a reduction in costs. Due to lower costs, McDonald's can pass the benefits on to customers, providing better service and lower prices. The reduction of waste provides a win/win/win situation for McDonald's, its customers and wider society.
