    1. 1. Supply Chain Management Basic concepts
    2. 2. Intro Business depend on their supply chains to provide them with what they need to survive and thrive

    10. 10. Effective Supply Chain Simultaneous improvements in Customer Service Internal operating efficiencies of the companies in the supply chain Return on investment

    12. 12. Supply Chain Areas
    13. 13. Information (The basis of making these decisions) Production (What, how and when to produce) Inventory (How much to make and how much to store) Location (Where best to do what activity) Transportation (How and when to move product)
    14. 14. Production If factories and warehouses are built with a lot of excess capacity, they can be very flexible and respond quickly to wide swings in product demand. On the other hand, capacity costs money and excess capacity is idle capacity not in use and not generating revenue.
    15. 15. Production Manufactures PRODUCT FOCUS A factory that takes a product focus performs the range of different operations required to make a given product line from fabrication of different product parts to assembly of these parts. FUNCTIONAL FOCUS concentrates on performing just a few operations such as only making a select group of parts or only doing assembly. These functions can be applied to making many different kinds of products.
    16. 16. Production Warehouse STOCK KEEPING UNIT (SKU) STORAGE All of a given type of product is stored together. This is an efficient and easy to understand way to store products. JOB LOT STORAGE All the different products related to the needs of a certain type of customer or related to the needs of a particular job are stored together
    17. 17. Trucks from suppliers arrive and unload large quantities of different products large lots are then broken down into smaller lots Smaller lots of different products are combined according to the needs of the day Production Warehouse CROSSDOCKING loaded onto outbound trucks that deliver the products to their final destination
    18. 18. Inventory Inventory is spread throughout the supply chain and includes everything from raw material to work in process to finished goods that are held by the manufacturers, distributors, and retailers in a supply chain.
    19. 19. Inventory Types Cycle Inventory The amount of inventory needed to satisfy demand for the product in the period between purchases of the product.
    20. 20. Inventory Types Safety stock Inventory—Inventory that is held as a buffer against uncertainty.
    21. 21. Inventory Types Seasonal Inventory This is inventory that is built up in anticipation of predictable increases in demand that occur at certain times of the year
    22. 22. Location Centralize • Gain economies of scale and efficiency Decentralize • many locations close to customers and suppliers in order for operations to be more responsive.
    23. 23. Transportation This refers to the movement of everything from raw material to finished goods between different facilities in a supply chain
    24. 24. Transportation Six basic moods 1. Ship 2. Rail 3. Pipelines 4. Trucks 5. Airplanes 6. Electronic transport
    25. 25. Information Information is the basis upon which to make decisions regarding the other four supply chain drivers.
    26. 26. Information Information is used for two purposes in any supply chain: 1. Coordinating daily activities : Available data on product supply and demand to decide on weekly production schedules, inventory levels, transportation routes, and stocking locations. 2. Forecasting:
    27. 27. The Evolving Structure of Supply Chains
    28. 28. The Evolving Structure of Supply Chains 1. Vertical Integration: The aim of vertical integration was to gain maximum efficiency through economies of scale 2. Virtual Integration: Companies find other companies who they can work with to perform the activities called for in their supply chains
    29. 29. Participants in the Supply Chain
    30. 30. Participants in the Supply Chain
    31. 31. Producers Producers or manufacturers are organizations that make a product
    32. 32. Distributors Distributors are companies that take inventory in bulk from producers and deliver a bundle of related product lines to customers. “Time and Place” function
    33. 33. Retailers Retailers stock inventory and sell in smaller quantities to the general public.
    34. 34. Customers Customers or consumers are any organization that purchases and uses a product. A customer organization may purchase a product in order to incorporate it into another product that they in turn sell to other customers.
    35. 35. Service Providers Logistics Providers: Trucking companies and public warehouse companies. Financial service providers: Making loans, doing credit analysis, and collecting on past due invoices. Market Research Product Design Information Technology
    36. 36. Aligning the Supply Chain with Business Strategy Develop the needed supply Chain capabilities Define the strengths of your company Understand the markets that your company serves
    37. 37. Understand the Markets Your Company Serves What kind of customer does your company serve? What kind of customer does your customer sell to? What kind of supply chain is your company a part of?
    38. 38. Understand the Markets Your Company Serves These attributes to clarify requirements for the customers you serve: 1. The quantity of the product needed in each lot 2. The response time that customers are willing to tolerate 3. The variety of products needed
    39. 39. Understand the Markets Your Company Serves 5. The service level required 6. The price of the product 7. The desired rate of innovation in the product
    40. 40. Define Core Competencies of Your Company What kind of supply chain participant is your company? Is your company a producer, a distributor, a retailer, or a service provider? What does your company do to enable the supply chains that it is part of? What are the core competencies of your company? How does your company make money?
