dc.description.abstractThis project is focused on Mead Johnson's metabolic product family. The team will document the current cost of goods structure and the charges which are incurred at the third party manufacturer. Based on this infonnation, we will identify opportunities to reduce costs associated with product sampling, label order processes, production equipment cleanups, and material carrying costs. We will also assess qualitatiye issues. These will include Plant 2's safety record as compared to the perfonnance of Plant 1 's and quality systems versus Mead Johnson's internal quality standard. Based on the information gleaned from these assessments, we will identify savings opportunities, make recommendations on how best to capture the savings and offer suggestions to improve qualitative systems.
