Retail, distribution and production. What’s differentiate Retail from others two?
- The Ocean of data. Many locations with thousands SKU.
Where to focus? What is system constraint?
A: The Data (information) flow!
How to exploit it?
A: To clean mistakes from the system and to make data reliable. If not, you’ll allow to run the Random Chaos mechanism in the very roots of the system.
How to subordinate?
A: Through automated POOGI (Process of ongoing improvement) mechanism. And to implement POOGI mechanism is more important than DBM (Dynamic Buffer Management) formula. BUT to implement POOGI is a “mission impossible” without proper IT solutions. This solution must enable automated collection of information about the every single “quanta” of behavior.
How to implement auto POOGI?
How to collect skills and competences for that? I will share our Goodstream experiences during TOCICO presentation in Chicago 2012.
