Develop the overall, comprehensive strategy to successfully launch a new product into mass production, or service into full integration, within the given
organization. All elements of operations management and project management is captured within this product or service launch activity. You can assume the
facility has the available floor space (manufacturing scenario) and infrastructure (service scenario) but you must develop the overall plan for equipment,
resources, inventory, manufacturing, service implementation and logistics. This plan should also list the stakeholder and customer requirements; consider these
requirements as the plan is developed.
The church of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale is perhaps one of the most fantastic baroque churches in Rome. Its unusual oval shape and spectacular decoration are a feast for the eyes, but when studied carefully, the church also contains a spiritual message. First, one looks to the altar and sees the painting of St. Andrew being crucified on an X-shaped cross. While this painting appears to be a moment of despair, Bernini has done something clever - he has tilted the painting forward slightly. When one looks at Andrew's eyes, we can follow his gaze up to see them staring at a small painting of angels staring down at him. The angels are smiling, assuring him of his salvation. If one steps back and continues looking up from the altar, we soon arrive at a magnificent statue of Andrew rising towards heaven on a cloud. Free from the suffering of the world, Andrew's arms are outstretched in joy. Bernini does a wonderful job of mirroring the sculpture of Andrew with his architecture. The oval ceiling is decorated in gold leaf, representing the heavens. Around the base of the ceiling, putti (young angel-boys) decorate the heavens with garlands in a playful manner - in some cases they appear overzealous and are close to falling off the ceiling. As Andrew climbs higher, the ceiling opens up and light from the dome pours into the church. Two putti peer over the edge, smiling, happy that Andrew is finally here. Finally, at the top of the dome, we find a gold carving of the Holy Spirit - Andrew's final destination is a reunion with God. The message of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale is one all can aspire to - that at the end of our earthly lives, we too hope that the heavens will open up to us and the angels will celebrate our coming. St. Andrew may have been crucified, but Bernini's church celebrates his - and our - resurrection. Bernini was also responsible for decorating parts of St. Peter's basilica, as well as the design for its signature piazza. In order to make St. Peter's the greatest church in Christendom, Bernini had to make sure that the relics of St. Peter's were given their proper due. At the time of his decorating, relics played an important role in the Christian faith. Just like Mary's relic in Chartres, the relics at St. Peter's helped people better connect with the spiritual realm. Understanding this, Bernini designed an elaborate baldacchino, which served to shelter the relics of St. Peter and the bishop's throne. The dictionary entry for baldacchino says they are derived "from those held over the Eastern emperors as a symbol of power." With this in mind, it explains why Bernini's baldacchino is so elaborate - the Church is the ultimate moral authority on Earth and it should have a covering even grander than the emperors of antiquity. Through the baldacchino, one can see all the way to the altar, where a magnificent window with the Holy Spirit shines. Those who see the baldacchino would have been in awe, as it reveals that the reason the Church is so powerful is because it has the p>GET ANSWER
