WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE MANUFACTURER? • “Loyal consumers” may switch to competition if desired product is not available / delivered • Retailers expect immediate response to product / service needs • Distributors are unwilling to carry inventory beyond accepted norms • Cost of inventory in the supply chain is eventually borne by manufacturer
  • 5. COMPETITIVE PRESSURES Rapid SKU proliferation To address different customer segments: •Increasing need for wide variety •Great push to introduce new products rapidly Forecasting Errors Long cycle times High uncertainty
  • 6. LEADING TO…. •Poor responsiveness •Inventory build-up at various stages … a sluggish & inefficient supply chain
  • 7. • Being responsive to market needs & changes • Optimise on inventory levels across the chain: vendor, mfr., distributor, retailer, etc • OTIF: Order fulfillment on time in full OBJECTIVES OF SCM:
  • 8. WHAT IS SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??
  • 9. If you think it is to... Manage the component parts from Suppliers Manage inbound freight Manage outbound freight Manage product distribution Manage logistics and warehouses SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
  • 10. SCM requires managing the flow of information & material…. across suppliers, manufacturer, CFAs, distributors, retailers etc. to meet customer expectations
  • 11. A WELL-DESIGNED SUPPLY CHAIN ADDRESSES ISSUES THROUGHOUT THE CHAIN: Time to Market Lead Times / cycle times Inventory formation and accumulation Information and demand flow Product flow Planning & procurement processes Distribution and logistics
  • 12. SUPPLY CHAIN DESIGN Information Supplier Supplier Manufacturer Wholesale Distribution Sales Level 3 Level 2 Means: Evolves to: - Seam less Flow - Eliminate waste - Reduce cycle time Profitability Customer Satisfaction ROA EPS Materials & Products Waste Waste Waste Waste Waste
  • 13. INFORMATION FLOW : A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF SCM • Flow of information up & down the chain is as important as Material Flow • Helps reduce uncertainty • Improves credibility & defines customer expectations • In the internet age - it will be a must for all supply chains • IT is playing a big role in keeping communication flowing
  • 14. IMPROVING INFORMATION FLOW IS CRITICAL TO ACHIEVING A WORLD CLASS SUPPLY CHAIN 2 18 37 43 0 0 10 20 30 40 50 Not Important Somewhat Important Important Very Important Critical % of Respondents
  • 15. METHODS TO IMPROVE INFORMATION FLOW: ROLE OF IT • ERP systems – Focus on transaction processing – Integrates various functions within the organisation – Ensures connectivity across geographic locations – Provides a clean & single information back bone – Is fast becoming an industry standard – Helps the organisation to become process oriented • E-connectivity – Is useful as a medium for connectivity across various entities – Cheaper , faster , non-hierarchical (network)

  • 17. PERFORMANCE MEASURES • Motivation of supply chain links can improve only if performance measures are put in place • Focus of performance measures on Interfaces between entities of the chain in place of independent individual entity performance • Performance measures need to be derived from overall objective of supply chain - I.e. they need to be aligned across the chain
  • 18. PERFORMANCE MEASURES Some common examples: • Production alignment to demand • Order Fulfilment ratio (On time in full) or Availability cover • Forecasting efficiencies • Distribution efficiency • Vendor rating on delivery reliability, lead times • Inventory turns • Cycle times / Response time / Average Lead time
  • 19. SCOPE OF SCM • Demand Planning • Production Planning • Distribution planning • Supply Chain Strategies • Information management • Performance Measures

  • 22. Today - with SAP R/3 Showroom SUPERMARKET RDS Factory CFACorporate RO SAP R/3
  • 23. HOW IS THIS HELPING US? • Facilitation of CRP flow • Better distribution and stock correction • Smarter demand planning • Rapid demand communication • Responsive supply chain - changes in demand / supply being incorporated
  • 24. TOMORROW - A “PULL” BASED SYSTEM ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN ConsumerShowroomPlantsSuppliers RDS CFA Extended CRP system
  • 25. THE EXTENDED SUPPLY CHAIN A win-win situation – Secondary sales data will be available to us leading to sharper forecasting – Pull system will ensure leaner inventories across the chain – Increased availability of A category products for BAs – Leading to better customer service (End & intermediate customers)
