Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to evaluate the impact of the federal requirements process on the Military Sales Division of the M.J. Soffe Corporation Soffe, apparel manufacturer, and to identify areas of influence that Soffe can control to shape the requirements of future military needs. M.J. Soffe is a main government supplier of the U.S. Marine Corps uniform olive drab and brown crew neck undershirts. This is a study that complements M.J. Soffes effort to understand the Federal Acquisition Regulation FAR and requirements process to improve their efficiency for future growth. This project will look at the external environment which influences the military garment industry. Also, an analysis of the requirements generation process will be completed to provide recommended opportunities for M.J. Soffe to shape future apparel requests of the military services. Furthermore, the identification of government constraints has effects on manufacturing and sales planning. This report will also look at the residual implications of this relationship towards forecast error and inventory levels.
