Riordan Manufacturing Analysis of the HRIS
Hugh McCauley, COO of Riordan Manufacturing wrote in a memorandum to the HR integration Product Manager the need and initial approval for the upgrade and support to their HR department in order to integrate the disparate tools used today to support the current HR function. The project plan to be completed needs to include tasks, resources schedule and budget while being implemented in approximately six months. This analysis will discuss the application architecture and process design using a more state-of-the-art uniform system.
