The report is focused on the Bangladesh Defense Industry, the operation of company A.N.Associates, and job executed by Abu Naser Farsheed Ahmed in A.N.Asscoaites, as part of my internship report for Brac University MBA program. The company profile is self explanatory, it provides operational information on A.N.Associates with respect to type of operation, scale of operation, company culture and work previously undertaken by the company. SWAT analysis highlights that A.N.Associates as a company has more weakness than strength. STP(Segment, Target , Profit), it shows that the Defense Industry in Bangladesh is unique , in the sense that it has only one consumer. Moreover, for revenue and profit generation companies focuses on a small number of Foreign companies, whom to represent in Bangladesh Defense Industry. For Background of Bangladesh Defense Industry, due to lack of scholarly paper available to analyze the defense industry in Bangladesh, I have emphasized on the arsenal of weapon, vehicle, aircraft , ships, ability to manufacture defense oriented product in Bangladesh. I have divided Background of Bangladesh Defense Industry into two parts. First, I gave a historical account of Bangladesh Defense Industry immediately after achieving Independence and post 1975 (After assassination of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman). I elaborated on the key suppliers of Defense product and service to Bangladesh at both point of time in Bangladesh. Furthermore, emphasized on their weapon Arsenal. Afterwards I have provided statistical information on the weapon arsenal at the disposal of the Arms Forces of Bangladesh (Army, Navy, Air-force) at present. It would provided a comparative analysis of how far we have come along, in comparison to our situation post Independence, with respect to weapon arsenal at the disposal of the Arms Forces of Bangladesh. Secondly, I emphasized on the ability of the Arms Forces of Bangladesh to manufacture and providing their own defense oriented product and service. I have done the analysis of Army, Navy, Air force individually, in terms of achieving self sufficiency. After doing Porters 5 forces analysis, we get a better understanding of Bangladesh Defense Industry market. • Inconvenience for entry and exit. • Description of present market player. • Why the Buyer (Arms forces of Bangladesh) enjoy greater bargaining power & when the buyer do not. • Reason behind the level of competition in Bangladesh Defense Industry. Job profile has details of work undertaken by my company A.N.Assocites and my responsibilities as Chief Operating Officer. The Research Question is answered in the Recommendation. The Recommendation focuses on how private companies being involved in the manufacturing process itself, would allow the Defense Industry to achieve self sufficiency at a faster pace, thus not being dependent on imported products, raw material etc.
