Inventory Management at General Motors Assembly Division and AIMS, the Automated Inventory Management System
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, I will first give a brief overview of General Motors Assembly Division (GMAD) , including a history and an explanation of its function within General Motors. Then I will outline the goals and benefits of proper inventory management and study two opposing philosophies used by inventory control. Next, I will discuss my hopes for using linear programming techniques as a tool in establishing inventory goals, and why these hopes were not realized. Finally, I will present the Automated Inventory Management System (AIMS) which was the end product of my work at GMAD.
