Supply the missing starting materials, reagents or products


I think that this one is a Diels-Alder Reaction

I am pretty sure that this one is a substitution I just don't know what the reagents would be.

I have no clue what this might be.

Communications, Order Entry, Materials and Inventor

What you expect to find when you arrived in Oregon. Here is some more information you have obtained from management:

Facilities P and T both claim that parts from the S facility sometimes do not arrive on time, causing costly production shut-downs which periodically lead to missed contractual ship dates.
The S facility has records that those same parts were loaded onto trailers and that the semi-trailers left on time.
Facility S habitually runs out of the "accessory" parts which are shipped from the T and P facilities.
There have been recent instances where over seven shifts of production from a single molding machine have been defective due to a malfunctioning mold.
Similar quality problems have occurred when the wrong plastic resins have been used for some molded parts.
Work-in-process (WIP) within the stamping department is sometimes misplaced or lost, disrupting downstream manufacturing processes and leading to missed shipments to the T and P facilities.
Upon arriving on site and interviewing the production and inventory planning staffs at all three facilities, you hear the following:

Facility S claims that there have been instances where they have been over one day ahead of their shipping schedule for specific parts, and that the T and P facilities were still claiming they were out of that part. Then, the "missing" parts were located in a still loaded semi-trailer in the yard adjacent to the P and T facilities.
The production and inventory planning staff at the T and P facilities claim to be shipping the "accessory" parts to the S facility on a JIT (Just in Time) basis and that their shipments should be adequate to support the S facility's requirements on a level production plan.
The small quality control group at the S facility point out that they do not have the equipment or training to perform quality checks to the same level that facilities P and T are able to perform.
Due to recent economic conditions, only a single supervisor is available in the stamping department and in the molding department during midnight shifts and on weekends.
