Strategy Information System Planning for utilizing the Rejected Potash in the IPP
Pages : 469-475
This paper discusses the development of the design requirements for a strategic information system of the industrial potash plant (IPP) in Arabic Potash Company in Jordan in order to utilize the rejected potash (Dust and Potash-x), (production cycle, key performance indicator and work sheet). The system design requirements were developed using data flow diagram DFD and key performance indicator for the enterprise activity and the user view, respectively. The DFD model of the strategic management processes was developed through the structured analysis and design technique, and included the use of the author/reader review cycle to develop consensus. Firstly Key performance indicator is proposed to prove the quality and quantity for each unit of the plant (IPP) before we the other unit is down it work, which reduce the production error and the wasted time and the rejected production which increase the production quality and quantity. Secondly work sheet proposed in order to flow the production cycle .These requirements were compared with the enterprise information strategy to develop other requirements. These requirements led to a phased implementation approach of the strategic information system. Dust with low grade and high impurities content is generated during operations and product handling. This dust cannot be dispatched as product due its low physical and chemical analysis. This study is an attempt to research, develop and implement Industrial Potash Plant (IPP) processes and enabling technologies within Arabic Potash Company.
Keywords: strategic information system (SIS), production cycle, data flow diagram (DFD), key performance indicator.
