Individual Programming Development: Part 1
The organization I decided to base my paper around is Riordan Manufacturing which is a virtual organization that specializes in the field of plastic injection molding. The problem I see with this company is it’s operations process and procedures as well as accountability and accessibility so with that being said a programming solution is needed to improve the current operations situation. These changes can be made by acquiring a new inventory management system that will bring the production floor and front office together into a single operating system. The new system will connect not only inventory, production, and shipping, but will also bring sales, accounting, and quality control into a fully integrated information network that will benefit front office operations just as much as production. A programming solution will be very beneficial to employees because if we are faced with a difficult task we can analyze and understand the problem better. The way I determine that the current inventory management system need an upgrade and improvements was taking a look at company goal reports which weren’t meet the standards we had envisioned. Also customer feedback way another way I was able to determine where changes needed to be made. So with that being said I have decided that a programming solution will help as well because if we plan on acquiring a new inventory management system we have no room for mistakes or problems. A programming solution will prevent us from spending rigorous hours at our facility’s troubleshooting problems that arise with this new system. Also if we happen to run into a problem it will save us money because if our employee’s can troubleshoot the problem their self’s then there will be no need for us to bring in outsider’s to solve the problem or purchasing new software and hardware....
