Process Design for Riordan Manufacturing
As acting consultants for Riordan Manufacturing, our goal is to assist the company in streamlining its design process. To achieve this goal an analysis of the production process for electric fan product and determine with stages are vital and which are not value adding and eliminate the latter.

 Riordan has the need to minimize the waste generated by each business unit to reduce the production cost of the fan. The factory in Hangzhou, China uses these pieces to create customized products. The company focuses on the optimization strategy to improve the mutual recognition procedure based on the volatility of the processes involved in the supply and demand. The local company must provide the necessary supply of production-based engines.

The assembly plant after receiving the goods must be sent packing to proper treatment. Finally, the transport unit refers to the distribution of electric fans. Riordan is concerned about the loss of their respective units. Therefore, reduce the level of residues of each unit, could reduce the cost of producing each unit. An initiative started using factory parts as Hangzhou additional products. However, the factory has a concern about the periodic applications to provide its fans. Therefore, is difficult to properly assess the requirements of these materials.

Riordan focused on inventory management of raw materials to achieve the final product. “Supply chain must be connected to the identification of suitable materials for the production of electric motors, and sales forecasts for future production,” (Chase, 2006). This will increase the competitiveness of production facilities and delivery schedule delays. Other options can increase the cost of inventory. Important issues are the polymer plastics used in electric fans are full of supplies, low stocks of plastic polymers capable of balancing the costs of reducing the financial burden of additional hardware engines.

Supply Chain
The process of Riordan supply chain is essential for success. "This process essentially involves the transformation of raw materials or the flow of semi-finished products from suppliers and distribute to customers," (Chase et al., 2006). In today's market, companies such as Riordan will be competitive and find new and innovative ways to transform their supply chain and make it a competitive advantage or strategy. A method that can be useful for Riordan is the use of outsourcing on a global scale. Outsourcing can save a significant amount of potential money for Riordan. Outsourcing is a great way to distribute work around the world that could benefit from regional markets, reduce operating costs and more. Riordan should consider integrating the delivery process that helps in this regard.

This process of the supply chain will ensure that orders can be in a position to be filled. However, it is essential to continuously monitor the inventory for quality issues.

Production Forecasts
The Riordan production estimate is based that the supplier in China is responsible for electric motors and plastic polymers, which are essential for electric fans. The point of view of the demands of production is determined by the average sales...
