This is a research proposal aimed at reducing production losses in the manufacturing department of an organization. The problem domain is how well information system can be adopted in an organization to monitor production and reduce on loss of production (Behling, 14).
The process of making a product passes through various departments in an organization. The initial step in the production is ordering of the raw materials from a supplier. It is the duty of the store-keeping department to regulate movement of goods to and from the store.
The next process in the manufacturing of a product entails machinery combination of the various raw materials in the appropriate portions. It is the mandate of the workers that control the machine to ensure that enough portions of raw materials are combined, as they should be done. Measuring each portion of the raw material in the most appropriate quantities and releasing them to the machine for production is the duty of machines technical team.
The final step in the production is packaging of the final products released by the machine. In this step, final product is the pack into the different packaging materials of different weights and sizes. Our research proposal is done on how best to reduce levels of waste in the production process by use of the information technology in the production process. Computerised recording of quantities of raw materials that are released to the manufacturing process is one of information system techniques of monitoring final products.
Sulphonation – The Process Most electrophilic substitution reactions are irreversible but sulfonation is an exception. Treatment of benzene with “oleum” (a solution of SO3 in concentrated sulfuric acid) will give the sulfonic acid, the electrophilic species being sulfur trioxide which is Lewis acidic.

Loss in the production within an organization will be realized due to poor record keeping by all the departments that are stakeholders in the manufacturing process. Another very common source of losses in the production process will be through theft of raw materials. This research proposal aims at coming up with how best information technology can be employed to reduce levels of losses in the production department of the organization.
True, an organization’s management is pedestalled with key roles to play in implementing information technology in the production department. The management is mandated with training her employees on how to use new technologies in the production. Training of new technology to the employees means that a training cost has to incur. It is also the duty of accountants and financial analyst in the organization to ensure that benefits realized from implementing new technologies exceed the total cost of new technologies implemented.
Information technology in the production will come up with new software that will aid to monitor the production. One common feature to this management of information system is that it should be connected or linked to the other such that information input in one department, will reflect automatically in another department as long as that department is concerned with the production (Heerkens, 19).
Information technology to be employed in the production should also try to be efficient and effective. By being efficient, it means that the information technology to be employed should reduce the cost of production by some level. When information technology is targeted to be effective, it means that the system of production should ensure delivery of the final output in time.In conclusion, management of information system in this organization should be focused on the main aim of the research proposal. The main problem domain in this proposal focuses on how to curtail losses of production by employing information technology in the production process.
