Nick Rappa is the Warehousing and IDEXX Program Lead at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics. He is responsible for supervision and monitoring of two (24/7) warehouses, while managing production personnel to achieve quantity, quality and cost targets.

Nick recently completed his RIT Capstone Project on Production Planning and Scorecard Development for IDEXX Business Unit at Ortho Clinical Diagnostics. He'll share his experiences implementing the project. Some of the achievements of this project include:

  • Established Workcenter (WC) specific daily minimums and stretch goals based on the product SKU.


  • Assured supply/services to IDEXX customers for a record 18 months with less and less heroic activities.


  • Created an IDEXX specific scorecard.


  • Created and refined production planning/tracking, capacity modeling, iFact (communication to management) and IDEXX forecast accuracy.


  • Hold monthly reviews of shipping and operation plans versus previously approved financial plans; Annual Operating Plan (AOP).


  • Increased customer Scorecard rating.


We hope you can join us.
