The current emphasis on the implementation of e-business and automated solutions in the quest for increased efficiency accentuates the importance of Business Process Reengineering. The existing method for processing Satellite Access Requests (SAR), Gateway Access Requests (GAR) and Requests for Services (RFS) at USTRANSCOM is an ideal candidate for review and innovation. The premise of this thesis is that Business Process Reengineering, using information technology and other enablers of change, may produce quantum performance gains in these processes, particularly in terms of cycle time. Three redesign alternatives to the current process are developed using the Nissen methodology in conjunction with computer modeling and simulation tools. All three processes have tremendous potential to demonstrate dramatic reductions in cycle time, resulting in more efficient, streamlined satellite communications access request procedures at USTRANSCOM. The redesigns are based on delegation of authority, reducing the length of the process, and the introduction of an automated, web-based solution to streamline workflow and increase productivity. The research concludes that the SAR, GAR, and RFS processes can be dramatically improved through the application of an automated, information technology solution.
