This MQP analyzed the performance of Process Improvement/ Supply Chain Management firms in the face of market risk using a regression model. Research was also conducted on the volatility of Electrical stocks, the factors involved in their volatility, and the uses of Electrical Engineering in the stock market. Tested to see if Process Improvement and Supply Chain efficiency can minimize the normal market volatility of their individual firm. Empirical analysis was conducted that negated this claim. This paper includes an analysis on models used in Electrical Engineering that can predict the price of electricity. This study has provided valuable knowledge that will help the participant in the MQP and other like- minded individuals integrate the two disciplinaries of interest.
