  • Notes: Supply chain involves everybody, from the customer all the way to the last supplier. Key flows in the supply chain are - information, product, and cash. It is through these flows that a supply chain fills a customer order. The management of these flows is key to the success or failure of a firm. Give Dell & Compaq example, Amazon & Borders example to bring out the fact that all supply chain interaction is through these flows.

  • What is a Supply Chain?
    • Every company is involved in one or more Supply Chains
    • A supply chain can be defined as “ the sequence of suppliers that contribute to the creation and delivery of a good or service to end customers . This encompasses virtually all aspects of a business—sales processing, production, inventory management, material supply, distribution, procurement, forecasting, and customer service, and several other areas…”
    Source :Aglira & al. , 1999
  • Components of a Supply Chain Demand & Supply Planning Sourcing & Supplier Management Manufacturing Storage & Transportation Customer & Order Management PLAN BUY MAKE MOVE SELL Manage the flow of materials, goods or services
  • Logistics vs. Supply Chain
    • Supply Chain is NOT logistics…
    • Supply Chain is MORE THAN logistics
      • covers the coordination of most activities & flows upstream :
        • from suppliers to manufacturing
      • and activities & flows downstream :
        • from manufacturing to end-customer

    • There are 3 types of flows to consider in a Supply Chain:
      • Material flows
      • Financial flows
      • Information flows
  • What is an Internal Supply Chain? A company’s “internal” Supply Chain is made of the material , information and financial flows between the company and its direct business partners. Material flows Financial flows Information flows SUPPLIER MANUFACTURER CUSTOMER
  • Integrated or Extended Supply Chain Need to take into account the supplier’s suppliers and the customer’s customers because they generally have an impact on the overall Supply Chain performance. Material flows Financial flows 2nd tier suppliers 1st tier suppliers Manufacturer Wholesaler Retailer End-customer Information flows

  • Supply Chain
    • SCM is more than just technology & information systems
    • SC is vital especially for e-commerce
    • SC implies a process and transversal approach across functions
    • One of the key drivers is information
    • Emphasis is placed on collaboration & coordination
    • Requires substantial investment in information systems
    • Agility & adaptability
    • Integrated SC and SCM require major organizational transformations
    • The human dimension remains essential :
      • People & change management
      • Partnerships management

  • Tunisia SC analysis: First Findings
    • Lack of coherence in the practices of the parties involved in the export process
    • Lack of links & access to international markets
    • Costly & inequitable border control process
    • Insufficient intermodal transfer infrastructure
    • Not harmonized processes & documents
    • Deficiencies in road transport & multimodal transport underdeveloped
    • Lack of institutional coordination

  • Implications for Trade Facilitation & Policy Decision Makers
    • Most companies have the same objectives:
      • Improve response time
      • Reduce inventory
      • Reduce costs:
        • transport costs
        • non-transport costs
  • Food for thought…
    • Supply Chain is a critical element of the companies as well as country’s performance in any economy…
    • What can be done to improve the global logistics & SC performance of companies & of the country?
