Proposal Package for Riordan
The objective of the paper is to submit a proposal package of a process design for Riordan Manufacturing. The paper will begin with a material requirements planning (MRP) for the manufacturing of Riordan electric fans. Then the paper will describe a new process design for the production of the fans. Furthermore, a supply chain will be developed to distribute the fans to the consumer along with production forecast to identify demand for the product. The proposal will include an implementation plan and a cover letter detailing how we will coordinate the operations planning and total quality management (TQM). Finally, a review of the proposal will be provided.
