dc.descriptionThesis available in Rice Library University Archives and Special Collection.
dc.description.abstractThis project evaluates the feasibility of relocating the manufacturing of plastic inner door panels used on Midline Redesign (MLR) refrigerators from American Sheet Extrusion Corporation (ASEC) to in-house manufacturing at Whirlpool Corporation's Evansville Division. Justification for this project will be based on researching ASEC's quality performance, cost differences for all MLR inner door panel part requirements, investment and manpower requirements, and a financial analysis. The research will conclude with proposed facility layouts and a project implementation schedule. The research results indicate that it would be more beneficial for the Evansville Division to produce inner door panels in-house.
