  21. 21. What is flexibility? Actually, it is not so much about avoiding commitment to an irreversible decision.  It involves development of operational resources that can quickly be redeployed in response to real time -- or at least very recent -- cues from the environment, be  it actual demand, a schedule built from a collaborative forecast with a very short time horizon (like a month or less), etc.  In production it generally means being able to quickly shift from building one SKU to another.  Delivery flexibility requires having different means of transportation based upon the cost/service requirements for the order, sometimes perhaps using package delivery, other times LTL, still other times consolidating with other orders to build a full TL.  In ordering, it is associated with the ability to quickly capture demand cues and assign products to orders in various ways based upon where product is available and what the replenishment requirement is.  Then, the previously defined operational assets might be used to create different ways to fill orders without having all product coming from stock.  The fast moving, smooth demand product might be from stock, but slow-moving items might be pulled from a centralized facility to reduce stock in the system.  In extreme situations where  product values justify it, slow-movers may be made to order in very short cycle times to fill an actual order.

  51. 51. FedEx is the world's largest express transportation company, with 624 aircraft and service to over 211 countries. There are 46 call centers across the globe handling over 500,000 telephone calls daily.

  52. 52. “ The best global brands,” (BW, 8/5/02) Brands usually aren’t listed on corporate balance sheets, but they can go further in determining a company’s success than a new factory or technological breakthrough. That’s because nurturing a strong brand…can allow companies to premium prices…   A strong brand also can open the door when growth depends on breaking into new markets. Starbucks Corp., among the fastest-growing brands, recently set up shop in Vienna, one of Europe’s café capitals, and says 400 of its planned 1,200 new store openings this year will be overseas.
  53. 53. “ The best global brands,” (BW, 8/5/02)   Data: Interbrand Corp. J.P.

  54. 54. 4. Value added service <ul><li>Price alone often is too difficult a playing field </li></ul><ul><li>Many companies provide value-added services such as support and maintenance </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Particularly for technical products </li></ul></ul>
  55. 55. Why do this? <ul><li>Many products are commodities, only the price matters </li></ul><ul><li>There is a need to get closer to the customer </li></ul><ul><li>Increasing IT makes this all possible </li></ul>
  56. 56. Example <ul><li>Goodyear delivers mounted tires to Navistar (a truck manufacturer) </li></ul><ul><li>Sequenced for JIT use </li></ul><ul><li>Goodyear has an IT group dedicated to Navistar’s materials management group </li></ul>
  57. 57. Example <ul><li>Under a joint venture called AOT, Goodyear and Accuride provide painted wheel assemblies for Mitsubishi and Ford </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They will even mount tires from Goodyear’s competitors </li></ul></ul>                                
  58. 58. More examples <ul><li>For many years, IBM did not charge for service </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Now, it’s their biggest source of income </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Otis sells elevators </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But, their largest income is from servicing those elevators for 50 years </li></ul></ul>

  118. 118. From Companies have realized enormous benefits from supply chain management (SCM) over the past decade –reduction in inventories of 25–60%, delivery improvements, and improved capacity utilization of 10–20%, to name a few. In fact, as the leader in SCM, i2 has delivered over $29.94 billion in audited value as of October 2001. This is just the beginning. The next leap forward in productivity will occur when two things happen. First, when SCM is linked to two critical processes – customer relationship management and supplier relationship management. Second, when companies just don’t share information, but when workflows within a company and between companies are linked. When these two things happen, then companies can react with real-time intelligence to changes from product concept all the way to product delivery.
