Goals for Data Architecture and Digital Architecture Working Groups

Update on TAS Workflow Analysis Project

Grace reported on the Workflow Analysis Project. She summarized a handout that covered the definition of a process, what each TAS unit will need to do define the required processes, evaluating the processes, and the bottlenecks that one should look for in a process. TAS has a target date of August 31, 2002 to complete the analysis of processes within TAS. Grace stressed that this analysis focuses on the flow and not on the object or the person doing the work. Following the TAS workflow analysis, other technical services processes and units in RUL will undertake workflow analysis.

Mary Beth discussed the work she was doing with consultants to look at processes and workflow in both TAS and other RUL technical services units. The consultants are: 1) Dr. Tayfur Altiok, Professor and Chairperson, Dept. of Industrial Engineering, Rutgers, 2) Don Blohowiak, authority on change in the workplace and management; also the founder and principal consultant of the Lead Well Institute, which is based in Princeton, 3) Dr. Charles Fay, Director, Master of Human Resource Management Program, Rutgers, and 4) Dr. Jim Luxhoj, Associate Prof. and Executive Officer, Dept. of Industrial Engineering
