    A car manufacturing company conceptualized a new car that will be more fuel efficient, ergonomically designed, and that satisfies the latest safety regulations. This car was recently launched and has now moved into full-fledged production. This is an example of:

    a) Operation, as the company is into car manufacturing, which is an ongoing process
    b) Project, as this car was conceptualized, designed, and has now been launched
    c) Project, as it has clear scope and requirements in terms of safety compliance, fuel efficiency, etc.
    d) Operation, as this activity didn't create a unique product


    If this is now in production as it has launched is it not in an "operation state"? I chose "a" but "b" was the correct answer.

    The subject of the scenario is the creation of the car, and then its release into production. That is a project. An operation would discuss the manufacturing of the car, or the ongoing management of its production.
