New Information System to Improve an Inventory Management Process
An inventory managanent operation requires accurate and timely information to provide services in the most effective and efficient manner. Many departments in Orange County, Florida that directly deal with purchasing, storing, and issuing of materials suffer from the lack of such information. However, some departments are making progress in establishing effective inventory managanent information systems. In most instances, the efforts to develop and implement new systems are inadequately planned and coordinated. In Orange county, efforts have been focused on developing and using independent systems. Moreover, there is no integrated inventory managanent systan functioning in the county despite the fact that purchasing is a centralized function. Through identifying and examining the inventory managanent information needs of Orange county, this study reccmnends that all departments computerize their inventory managanent system to improve the current inventory management process. This thesis also recornnends integrating the computerized inventory managanent information systan on a county-wide basis, and forming a strategic planning team and an information system project team to coordinate, plan, develop, and implement this integrated system.
