The success of this department depends on how they manage their key processes from the onset to completing stage. There are various problems in the current flow chart is associated with delays, increased inventory, and inability to meet customers’ expectations. Therefore, the production flowchart should be structured to accommodate few processes which include initial phase, pre-production, production, and quality inspection.

    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.
