Given your main focus on helping managers implement cost control programs, the CFO asked you to put together a memorandum of likely opportunities to reduce costs through the manufacturing facility itself.

 

  • He asked you to write short summaries of what each of the following specific opportunities to reduce costs is all about:
    • Describe 1 of the following a total quality programs: Crosby, six sigma, or Juran.
    • Describe the implementation of any one statistical process control program (e.g., Deming).
    • Discuss moving toward reduction in non-value-added activities. Include examples.
    • Explain the adoption of lean manufacturing techniques
  • The CFO remembers, from your initial interview, the point you made about the need for firms to consider the total cost of a decision or proposal, which might be different than traditional procedures might consider (when just the costs and benefits of the immediate change, new equipment, or new process might be considered). He asks you to write a short paragraph about that, including an example.
  • Finally, the CFO asked you to show him how to construct a control chart because he thinks he might use it in his own office processes to monitor performance in terms of timeliness of getting his reports done. Because you are not familiar with office processes, you instead show him an example of setting up and monitoring a control chart in a manufacturing process, given the following data:
    • Part X specifications for cutting a piece of steel are a nominal dimension of 1" +/- 0.05".
    • Once the process was deemed to be in control by the engineers, the next 10 consecutive samples drawn from the actual production showed a standard deviation of 0.016.
    • Actual sampling of production the next day showed consecutive part actual dimensions of the following: 1.03, 1.03, 1.035, 1.039, and 1.046.
    • Using this resource(http://www.databison.com/control-chart-in-excel/) to assist you, set up a statistical process control (SPC) chart by plotting the following:
      1. The upper and lower specification limits
      2. The part's nominal dimension
      3. The upper and lower control limits
      4. The actual dimensions of the 5 samples
    • Is there any cause for concern? Explain your reasoning.

Assignment Choice #1: Non-Computer-Based Training Approaches

 For this option, you will explore different non-CBT approaches. Review the subsection titled “Methods, Purpose and When to Use” in Chapter 6 of the textbook. (Effective Training: Systems, Strategies, and Practices (5th Ed.). Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall. ISBN-13: 9780132729048)

 

Think about your portfolio assignment and determine which approach(es) would be best to use for the training in your program. Explain why you have chosen non-CBT approaches over computer-based methods. Consider your audience, geographic location, and related factors for each of approach you have chosen. Write a one page paper (not including the cover page and reference page) that addresses the approach(es) you chose and why you recommend them for your portfolio assignment. Use at least two credible, outside sources to justify your approach(es). The CSU-Global Library is a good place to find these sources. 

 

Make sure your paper is formatted and cited according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements. No points will be assessed this week for this assignment but it is worth 30 points toward you final portfolio grade, in Week 8.

  • Describe the problem with the current processes and why are they ineffective.
  • Identify the organizational policies and procedures directly related to this process.
  • Provide specific evidence-based examples that clearly show the process is the cause of the deficiencies in management. Use management theories as evidence-based examples to show the link between the deficiencies and the process.
  • Consider reviewing David Walonick’s article, “Organizational Theory and Behavior,” that outlines how each management theory has been applied in the real world and the results those approaches had on the organization.
  • Determine what ethical, legal, and social issues exist within the current process and whether or not these will be a concern when changing the process.

You should answer the above questions in a 2 to 3 page well-written paper following APA guidelines.

  • Why do you plan to develop a process improvement plan for this company?
  • What are some examples of known deficient processes?



When responding to your peers, review their choice of company and their rationale for developing a process improvement plan. Provide feedback to your peers. Why do you or do you not think it is a good company to develop a process improvement plan for?

(300 words minimum). Justify your explanations by including in-text citations and references in APA format as applicable.
