Riordan Proposal       Riordan Manufacturing is at a pivotal point in their business life cycle as it relates to  the production of electric fans.   A recent climate survey resulted in the discovery of  employment dissatisfaction related to processes associated with the electric fan  production line.   Furthermore, labor-intensive and costly manufacturing processes have  highlighted the need for changes.   Their current situation provides the opportunity to  make some advantages changes to elevate the level of success they have enjoyed thus  far as a company.   Some key changes that would directly and hopefully, immediately,  bring forth these positive changes include the implementation of a material requirements  planning (MRP) system.   Acquiring such a system would enable Riordan to streamline  the production processes for the electric fan line while simultaneously allowing other  opportunities with regard to supply chain, process design and employee satisfaction to  be affected positively.       Material Requirements Planning System       The Information Systems department will spearhead the effort to assess the current  human resources information system to then be able to more easily identify what system  is appropriate for Riordan Manufacturing.   The goals of the new MRP will focus on  ensuring the availability of materials for production and customer delivery, maintain the  lowest possible inventory levels that support service objectives and plan manufacturing  activities, production schedules and purchasing activities.   It is important to note that an  integrated system is vital to reduce labor costs and to enable the system to become  more user-friendly.   The level of automaton will be determined once the each step in the  process is clearly defined. The scope of the information system project is to, at a  minimum, have a relational system for...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
