Open Access Graduate Research Paper


This paper defines roles and responsibilities for personnel while purchasing capital machine equipment to integrate into production to make machined components to be used in assembly operations. This paper, along with internal support documents the necessary tasks to be completed to ensure the project's success while maintaining delivery, cost, and the quality of product is preserved. Once a project charter is accepted, roles and responsibilities to support groups are assigned. Roles & responsibilities are established to ensure proper knowledge of machine purchase prior to the purchase order being release. This allows all organizations to input their requirements to ensure delivery dates are met, along with ownership of each task. This eliminate confusion and frustration that has previously been exhibited due to lack of communication/ knowledge of equipment purchases. By following the new procedure, projects will remain on schedule, on budget, and with the quality expected to hold.
