Riordan Inventory And Manufacturing Process Improvement Business Requirements
3. Devices will be under precision measurement, calibration and testing every 6 months.
Riordan’s current manufacturing process
As you can see from the above illustration, Riordan Manufacturing current process for the receiving of raw materials is a manual system, which could cause inaccurate information due to human error. With the slow process of each station information could take days before entering the system for others to see.
Raw Material is inventoried when it is being used for final products and handed to the clerk; the clerk enters the forms into the database. Final products are done the same way. The Flow process allows a lot of room for human error, missing forms, labor costs and unnecessary loss of man hours transferring data.
Orders come in and are shipped in a timely manner. All shipping documents are handed to the clerk for entry into the system, which could take hours to update due to forms or slow shipping docks. Customers who call about orders may be told orders have not shipped when shipment has already taken place.
