dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the development of an Organization and Management Manual for the field construction phase of automotive projects for George Koch Sons, Inc., manufacturers of paint finishing systems. The paper details the planning process, the situational analysis, the goals development, the plans and structure for the manual, and recommendations that were made upon completion of the project. The planning process involved identifying the resources available from within the Koch organization. The situational analysis utilized both a quantitative method and an environmental assessment to identify strengths and weaknesses of the field operation. The goals that evolved from the analysis were: I. To increase productivity and reduce customer complaints by developing procedures and guidelines to aid in the management of field projects. 2. To design the O & M document to be a quick and easy reference for employees who may not have an understanding or familiarity with the Koch organization. 3. To structure the O & M document to allow revisions, since all projects will have different requirements. The manual which evolved from this project included I 3 sections dealing with topics ranging from installation supervision to safety programs and equipment start up. Recommendations are made regarding the future use of the manual and on the management of information within the Koch organization.
