This study will focus on the impact of a KPI-driven shared service dynamic fee model on shared office solution (SOS) shared service group within the majority shareholder’s organization. Once tested and proven, the conceptual model can be expanded across all shared service groups including being applied against the historical fee model. Although the KPIs will vary between shared service departments, the conceptual design should hold true across the organization.

Growing concerns of crude oil prices soaring per barrel level, conventional fuel consumers are affected by the cost of fuel per gallon of gasoline. This has impacted the bottom-line of many organizations in the transportation sector, relying heavily on gasoline. Therefore, embracing an alternative fuel initiative is important to addressing the issues of price fluctuations of crude oil. A business strategy to address issues of price fluctuations (crude oil), Crown Equipment Corporation is taking initiative to finding alternative fuel serving a fleet of service vans, with consideration for diesel, battery-electric (lithium), compressed natural gas (CNG), and liquid petroleum gas (LPG). Data is obtained from a variety of sources including Crown Equipment Corporation, WEX, and Government and EPA sites.

The Product Support Division, A4F, of Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command owns a two-phased forecasting process known as the Requirements Review and Depot Determination (R2D2) process. The R2D2 forecasts organic workload which ultimately support the warfighter by providing mission essential logistical sustainment for weapon systems. During a black belt facilitated Rapid Improvement Event (RIE) held in October 2016, there was concern on the reliability of the funding files.
The purpose of the project was to analyze the return process of product throughout DLA Land and Maritime over the past two years, determining why the current process does not reverse the funds paid to the customer for transportation and misc. handling fees for unserviceable material.
The IDN is looking to align revenue and expense processes in one of its Cardiac Cath Lab.

efficiencies, supply support improvements, funding strategies).” The focus of this paper is to identify specific requirements for the development of the Depot Maintenance Inter-Service Agreement Application (DMA) utilizing Microsoft SharePointTM. Enterprise Content Management (ECM refers to technologies used to capture, manage, store, preserve, and deliver content and documents related to organizational processes (Duhon, 2005a).
This is a multifaceted project, which in essence illustrates on the repair and maintenance capabilities of Morris Furniture and the pitfalls in its repair operations. The point of convergence in this study is to initiate and examine the data analysis of the repairs being handled by the company in order to contrive a better repair rate. The paper will also examine the learning pathway held by Morris Furniture’s portfolio for its competitors as well as the practical implications it comprises. This project also proposes possible improvements in the operations after a deep analysis on the orientation of resource mobilization and performance measures as well as remove any backlogs that might prove to be destructive to the company’s vision.

An industry leading wholesaler in the Dayton area, with a focus in the residential and commercial construction, and industrial supplies and equipment market segment, has a unique problem that needs to be addressed. The company’s specialized setup - with multiple local companies sourcing heavily through the sourcing wing of the company, but not obligated to use the sourcing division for any of their purchases - creates a direct opportunity to enhance purchasing efficiency at the local level, and operational efficiency at the sourcing level, by incentivizing -- not penalizing -- the local companies to submit accurate orders to the sourcing division.
This paper will document the ten-month journey of centralizing nine Buyers (Purchasing Department) of Premier Health. It documents hurdles they encountered and celebrates performance and operational success. Take a deeper look into centralization as you explore similarities and differences of other organizations who too centralized various aspects of their organization.
Project objectives are to provide the Dayton Development Coalition(DDC) with the following: •An informed working knowledge of Ohio based OEM aerospace manufacturers specifically in fixed and rotary wing, and their supply chain. •Identify Ohio based manufacturers in the UAS field and their supply chain. •Identify companies in Ohio either in manufacturing or research and development involved in cutting edge technologies such as Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Sensors, Hypersonics, Autonomous Operations, and Directed Energy.
By creating and implementing an automated event based alert management system, contract actions and exceptions can be detected and automatically communicated to appropriate personnel for immediate action and resolution.

The primary focus of this capstone project is to provide a solution to refine the accuracy of the organic repair requirements process, and provide a more accurate product for use in the development of the annual man-power and capability build.
NewPage Corporation houses a total of seven facilities in the Central Wisconsin region. Implementation of a Dock Appointment Program, which requires carriers to adhere to a prescheduled loading appointment time, will allow NewPage to level out its preloading and liveloading volume throughout the day, thus mitigating the spikes that occur in liveloading and preloading volumes. Having a scheduled dock appointment will allow NewPage mill and logistics personnel to produce, plan, stage and load against a prescheduled driver arrival time, thus increasing efficiency in all of these processes. In addition, required dock appointments will eliminate bottlenecks and drastically decrease driver wait times, therefore directly decreasing the costs assessed against NewPage for driver detention, layover charges and expedited freight charges.

The initial scope of this project was to optimize inventory between two physically separate Transmission & Distribution (T&D) facilities.
The primary focus of this capstone project is to show how effective management of operating room supplies can provide cost containment for hospital supply chains.
An analysis of current research methods and technologies has revealed capability gaps in all of the required attributes. Amplification in the supply chain, disconnected processes, nonstandard data transactions, stove-piped communities, non-robust modeling techniques, misalignment of project milestone management, and significant data management overhead are but a few of the symptoms.
Problems with unexpected cut cases and high finished product scrapping rates led the skin care product supply team within Procter & Gamble (P&G) to evaluate the work process and technical aspects of how expiration data was used in our ERP system when determining replenishment needs.
The strategic deliverables of this project include the complete data scrubbing and cleansing of all Sayre item numbers, re-mapping of all bills of material and build specification reports to correctly identify manufacturing needs, sourcing of inventory buy items to Avery Miamisburg standards and the transfer of service inventory to the Field Service sub-inventory location.
