  • 2. Content The concept of agility1. Agile practices2.
  • 3. The concept of Agility  Key issueKey issue 11 What are the dimensions of the agile supply chain?
  • 4. The concept of Agility  Market sensitive  Supply chain is capable of reading and responding to real demand  Virtual  Information-based supply chain, rather than inventory-based. Agile supply chainAgile supply chain
  • 5. The concept of Agility  Network based  EDI and internet enable partners in the supply chain to act upon the real demand  Process integration  Collaborative working between buyers and suppliers, joint product development, common systems and shared information Agile supply chainAgile supply chain
  • 6. The concept of Agility  Demand characteristics and supplyDemand characteristics and supply capabilitiescapabilities end-customers become more knowledgeable about product Lean supply chain Agile supply chain 1980’s 1990’s Efficiency, cost Responsiveness Focus

  • 15. Content The concept of agility1. Agile practices2.
  • 16. Agile practices  Key issueKey issue 11 How can we use agile practices to benefit from turbulence in the marketplace?
  • 17. Agile practices  Three characteristics of supply chain operations related to agile  Mastering and benefiting from variation in demand;  Very fast response to market opportunities;  Unique or low volume response.
  • 18. Agile practices  Benefiting from varianceBenefiting from variance  Three sources of demand uncertainty  Seasonality  Product life cycles  End-customer demand Demandvariance Time
  • 19. Agile practices  Benefiting from varianceBenefiting from variance  Three sources of demand uncertainty  Seasonality  Product life cycles  End-customer demand variety Volume Start up Micro-markets Organize Adjust Agile capabilityAgile capability is neededis needed
  • 20. Agile practices  Benefiting from short time windowsBenefiting from short time windows  Decreased D-time requires different levels of agility (VMI & QR)  Speed of replenishment  Upstream time sensitivity  Information dissemination and alignment
  • 21. Agile practices  Benefiting from small volumeBenefiting from small volume  Small volume is a result of micro-markets, customization and rapid responsiveness.  Three approaches of agile strategy related to small volume  Changeover flexibility  Modularity at the network level  Service-based and information-based solutions
