Obviously the company has its operation strategies that enable it to satisfy their customers and also the final consumer in the market. The efficient execution of all operation and processes has made the company huge and successful and that shows the company is operating within the competitive dimensions that form the base point for a successful operations strategy. Competitive dimensions of a successful operations strategy are more than visible in this organization which confirms the reason to the success of this organization. These dimensions include cost, product quality and reliability, delivery speed & reliability, coping with changes in demand, flexibility in supply chain, ‘Design-to-Market’ Speed and other product-specific criteria like the following:

–        Technical Liaison & Support.

–        Meeting a Launch Date.

–        Supplier After-Sales Support.

–        Other Dimensions.

Pearl Corp. has its operations multinationally distributed and it requires efficient communication and operations management.
