Shemrock Inc. is a brake pad manufacturing company. This company uses raw materials, such as carbon powder, iron, ash, and resin. It wants to develop an inventory management system that will have the following features:

The system should store the current inventory levels for different raw materials in a file.

If carbon powder is less than 500 lbs, then the system will check if orders are still pending on the shop floor. If pending orders are for more than 5,000 brake pads, then someone should order 2,000 lbs of carbon powder; otherwise, someone should order for 1,000 lbs of carbon powder.

Similarly, perform the same check for other raw materials iron, ash, and resin.

The list of all the raw-material vendors is available with Shemrock Inc. The system should read and store the vendor information and then, depending upon the raw material that is to be ordered, print out the purchase order for that raw material. The purchase order will contain the details of the raw material such as the name, quantity, total cost, and vendor address.

Create a flowchart and pseudocode using control breaks that enable the user to print invoices for any raw material that is selected.

submit a document containing the flowchart and the pseudocode Explain how you implemented the system and describe the logic steps of the system.

An operational version of KPS, at a weekly level of detail, helps determine where products are produced and how finished products and in-process products are shipped between plants and distribution centers. A tactical version of KPS, at a monthly level of detail, helps to establish plant budgets and make capacity-expansion and consolidation decisions. Operational KPS reduced production, inventory, and distribution costs by an estimated $4.5 million in 1995. Tactical KPS recently guided a consolidation of production capacity with a projected savings of $35 to $40 million per year.

During the past two decades, a new trend towards integration and collaboration in supply chains has been recognised among researchers as well as among business practitioners. This philosophy is called supply chain management and has received enormous attention in logistics research. Collaboration based on supply chain management is expected to reduce total cost and improve service towards the supply chain’s end customers at the same time. The argumentation in existing literature is however seldom underpinned by more rigorous empirical material and becomes therefore conceptual and superficial. Furthermore, it is incongruous about what actually is done when companies collaborate and what more......

...Company Management Information Systems Karmekia Wilson American Intercontinental University MGMT-305 May 31, 2015 Abstract In this paper I will discuss what MIS means and how they affect different companies and organizations. I’ll also access the organizations and give a brief description on how information technology brings a competitive edge and advantage to the organizations. Company Management Information Systems Companies develop management information systems to help and to give decision makers the information and data to fulfill and complete their job responsibilities. MIS are very useful in companies. They provide background, current data and trend analysis so the manager has data available on all aspects of the business (Markgraf). Managers who use MIS can increase their business performances with the detailed information on their business. They can make better decisions concerning the company and help move the company into the right direction. Management information systems are different from ordinary information systems in that they are utilized to study other information systems used in functional tasks in the company. Academically, MIS is normally utilized to pertain to the cluster of information management processes connected to the automation or assistance of individual decision making (Clarke, 2007). Toyota has utilized there MIS to the fullest potential. The company has established new areas for development through innovations (Ukessay). ......

In order to support an opinion on the side we decided to analyze all the probable scenarios. If the company management decided that it is better to stop the production of product 103, they could do this in one of the following manners: 1. Stop production and any business related to product 103. 2. Stop production but outsource it to another company and continue the distribution. 3. Stop production and use the available production capacity in order to produce product 101 or 102. If the company management decided that it is better to continue the production of product 103, they could do this in one of the following manners: 1. Maintain the same volume of production. 2. Increase the volume of production. 3. Lower the volume of production. 4. Substitute 102 production capacity with 103 if the 103 facility has not sufficient capacity to exploit economies of scale Analysis of the P&L statement of 31 December 2004 If we have a look at the P&L statement for the 2004 it is obvious...

Improving Raw Material Management

...TEN WAYS TO IMPROVE INVENTORY MANAGEMENT CFOs and other senior executives already know the importance of inventory management. And yet even the most attentive managers often find it difficult to get it right. In our work with clients, we've found that decision makers often rely on external benchmarks that seldom deliver expected insights. And they make operating assumptions that send them down the wrong path. Two of the classic misconceptions: improving the accuracy of sales forecasts is the best way to reduce inventory and beefing up customer service requires keeping more inventory on hand. The fact is, both assumptions can lead to inventory gluts or shortages. As most executives know, getting the right levels is vital since it not only controls costs but also serves as a barometer of a company's overall health. We've found that best in class supply organizations are able to improve inventory levels by between 20 percent and 50 percent by employing sophisticated analytical tools, resulting in savings for years. We typically ask clients 10 questions that take the pulse of a company's inventory health. They are designed to assess the effectiveness of inventory reduction processes as well as the sophistication and breadth of those efforts. Taking an Inventory Pulse Check 1) Are you able to break down your operating inventory into the three major categories when reporting levels—safety, replenishment and excess or obsolete stock? This breakdown makes it easier to make sound......
