Riordan Manufacturing Project Paper University of Phoenix CIS / 319 Executive Summary The purpose of this team project is to accurately identify, and then propose a System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) for Riordan Manufacturing. Riordan has three operating entities located in Georgia, Michigan and California plus a joint venture in the People’s Republic of China. In each supply chain location inventory is received as raw goods, manufactured then shipped to customers throughout the world. Currently, the process used to monitor and forecast inventory has not shared innovation available in the market today. Learning Team B (LTB Incorporated) is providing a process which will deliver innovation and technology used in the following areas: inventory tracking customer relation management software monitoring of both raw and finished goods automatic accounting updates integrated wireless devices used for material processing To help increase sales and decrease over allocation of goods, LTB will be implementing an inventory system which will be available to all facets of Riordan Manufacturing. Riordan executives have allocated a budget of $150,000 which is required to include all the necessary software, hardware, training and implementation necessary to bring inventory systems into current market standards. Each SDLC process plays a critical role in the successful outcome of Riordan manufacturing. Through system investigation, analysis, design, implementation and maintenance, LTB will ensure Riordan’s inventory system will continue to run efficiently into the future. Service Request The service request presented by Hugh McCauley, COO of Riordan Manufacturing, is to suggest several specific systems of changes that will improve the company’s inventory tracking capabilities. Currently Riordan Manufacturing does not have technology implemented in their business to perform this task. By incorporating the advancements requested by LTB, enhanced inventory tracking and increased revenue will be obtained. Presently, Riordan Manufacturing uses a combination of paper and electronic channels of communication. LTB’s suggested implementation will replace the current conventional paper system. Although the final implementation continues to incorporate electronic channels of communication, the new system will include several new enhancements. These include documentation, order management, inventory control, and data storage. Since Riordan Manufacturing embodies supply chain locations is China, Georgia, Michigan and an R&D facility LTB will incorporate a Customer Relation Management (CRM) technology and enhanced intranet sites which will foster better communication throughout the inventory chain. LTB’s engineering plans are based upon Riordan’s Customer relationship Mission statement:
