Finding Efficiencies in Your Supply Chain
Presented by: Vardhan Mulik
In an increasingly competitive and complex, interconnected world, supply chains are no longer constrained by geography. Today, they span continents, time-zones and cultures. While organizations who take advantage of such opportunities can benefit greatly, they also face new sets of problems. Even the slightest delays in shipping cause cost overruns, trade policy unpredictability resulting from political upheavals is the new normal, and competitors often all source from the same supplier. Bolder measures like vertically integrating or more micro-level efforts with JIT inventories can provide limited efficiencies. Often, the solution lies in working better with what you do have; squeezing more efficiencies from your existing supply chain to maintain your competitive edge in the marketplace.
In this presentation, we look at the structure of a supply chain and the elements that go into it, how to identify bottlenecks for each element, how to analyze and resolve them and finally, how to incorporate what your learn into your long-term strategy.
- Identify areas to focus - where should I look?
- Elements of Strategy - how does this affect my long term plan
- Calculating real ROI - What really matters?
