Operations Assignment
Background Information – Cert IV in Commercial Cookery & Cert IV in Patisserie
The partners who own the 80 seat restaurant where you work as Kitchen Manager have decided to reappraise the staffing levels of the kitchen. They say there are too many hours being wasted through idle staff and as a result the bottom line of the business is suffering. They say the efficiency of the kitchen has to be analysed and it is claimed there is a 10% improvement needed in performance.
You are required to investigate this request to see if workplace operations can be modified to meet their requests and how you would instigate these changes for organised work flow.
(Use Event 2 as an example of what the partners are talking about)
You will need to write an operational plan (workflow plan) based on Event 2
1. Describe how you would monitor the work hours of the kitchen team and the efficiency involved in those hours leading up to the event – this would also mean you need to identify relevant problems associated with adjusting staff levels to attain the requested improvement (including a reworked basic roster of staff classifications, sections and hours worked – taking into account breaks- you have 3 days of staff wages to trial, setup, organise, coordinate and review the function) You will need to reduce wages by at least 10%
2. In your new plan, you must show the delegation process that will be involved. What tasks will you be assigning to what areas, what days and to which staff. – Overall 3 day operational workflow plan which incorporate the major prep tasks for each area.
3. How you plan to deal with a difficult customer service situation like an unexpected vegan, vegetarian, allergy and religious requirements within the new menu.
4. How you plan to take into account that many of the service fridges within the restaurant kitchen are not working, how will you maintain Food Safety throughout the 3 day period.
5. Will training be necessary to accommodate the staffing levels and skills profile of the Front of House Team – how will you get around this problem, what resources could you utilise to help you with this issue.
6. How you plan on gathering feedback for product development and how you would suggest marketing these events it in the future
7. Complete a Staff Performance Report on how each staff member performed (including yourself) with following the above 1-6 situations to help with future training
This report needs to be Word processed and set-out in a logical format that can be easily used as a reference point when setting up the next event. It will need to contain all the above points included in the report and the ways you plan on getting around each scenario.
