Your proposed information system is still a contender. The executives, however, are asking whether it is too limited to prevent the shadow IT projects that continue to take place throughout the organization.
They believe that you have considered what the organization does now, but how will your system adapt to new products and processes? Read Nicolet Plastics’ Quick Response Manufacturing Strategy for a concrete example of what they mean. You’ll have to quell their fears, so it’s time for another memo. Please focus on these points:

Identify any significant changes that your organization might reasonably make in its product offerings in the next three years. Explain the competitive benefits of this change.
Explain how your information system addresses or can adapt to the introduction of these new product offerings.
Give one reason why capabilities for the new product offerings should or should not be incorporated in the initial information system design. Justify your reason.

This memo should be 3–5 pages long.
This course requires the use of Strayer Writing Standards. For assistance and information, please refer to the Strayer Writing Standards link in the left-hand menu of your course.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:

Determine how information systems influence organizational strategies to improve decision making.

If someone gave you a week of time, what would you
do with it? A whole seven days is exactly what Nicolet
Plastics, Inc. is delivering its customers with its innovative
Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) program. Through
an enterprise-wide initiative that relentlessly emphasizes
lead time reduction, Nicolet Plastics is revolutionizing
time-based competition and make-to-order strategies
to ensure manufacturing excellence.

Nicolet Plastics credits a large portion of its QRM success
to the flexibility, depth, user-defined fields and forms,
process and workflow design and database integrity of
its manufacturing ERP and MES system, EnterpriseIQ
from IQMS. Without it, the QRM strategy would be very
difficult to deploy on a day-to-day basis. Read below
to learn more about Nicolet Plastics’ innovative quick
response manufacturing initiative and the results its
customers are experiencing.

Why Quick Response Manufacturing?
Nicolet Plastics is a total solutions provider of parts
and components for a wide array of customers, from
disposable packaging to high-end medical parts for MRI
equipment. The company specializes in low to moderate
volume, highly complex custom parts in a wide variety
of materials. Despite the diverse industries Nicolet
Plastics produces for, the one commonality between its
customers is the need for consistent products that drive
down costs and meet volume needs.

Observing the marketplace, Nicolet Plastics knew it
needed to make a change. Nicolet Plastics watched as
the major multi-national firms were increasingly moving
their high volume, minimally complex molded business
offshore to avoid rising costs at home. The company also
observed that although the high volume business was
leaving, the low to moderate volume business was not,
as these companies were not able to take advantage of
the offshore workforce.

Nicolet Plastics realized that the marketplace’s focus on
long-run production optimization offered an untapped

Nicolet Plastics, Inc. has
accomplished more over the
past 25 years than many of its
top competitors have in more
than 50—and they’re just getting
started. Originally established in
1986 in Mountain, Wis., a small
community located in the middle
of the Chequamegon-Nicolet
National Forest, it’s easy to see
that Nicolet Plastics has come
a long way since those humble
beginnings. Today, Nicolet Plastics,
an ISO certified company, serves
its ever-growing customer
base from a 41,000 square foot
production facility and focuses on
complex industrial and medical
components and assemblies.
In the beginning, Nicolet Plastics
was a company that mad
