HCLT Whitepaper: Responsive Efficient Customer- focused Creating Value Across The Supply Chain

  1. 1. Authors Rakesh Churiwala Sameer NagpalFEBRUARY 2012
  2. 2. Creating value across Supply Chain Abstract The consumer services industry is changing fast and becoming a lot more competitive. Rapid technology changes combined with a hyper connected and evolving consumer, means that organizations need to be able to respond to these changes fast, and ensure a more dynamic decision making process. One of the key strategies organizations will need to adopt to survive and flourish in this environment, is to optimize supply chain planning to maximize return on investment. An effective supply chain strategy will be imperative to not only address market challenges but also proactively meet fluctuations within the demand and supply chain. At HCL, we understand these challenges and the risks and provide solutions that enable Retail organizations to accelerate revenues and profits. By leveraging in-depth industry knowledge and insights, HCL provides end-to-end solutions that optimize processes across critical business functions such as merchandise planning, demand planning and replenishment. In addition, our solutions can be integrated with the core business processes to ensure that the business stays in line with the customer’s need. Some of the key industry trends in Supply Chain: ?Customer-driven responsive supply shain ? connected supply chain Shelf ? analytics Shelf ?Demand synchronization ?Collaboration on forecasting and store replenishment These will be looked at in detail later. Target Audience This whitepaper focuses on the key industry trends and challenges and how HCL’s service offerings delivered through the Supply Chain Center of Excellence helps address these changes.2 © 2012, HCL Technologies.

  3. 3. Creating value across Supply Chain This paper is targeted at professionals across the consumer services, supply chain, logistics and manufacturing industry such as: ?Operations/ retail business managers ?Business and/or technology consultants ?IT professionals Changing Landscape Increasing globalization of the supply chain and shortening product lifecycles means organizations will have to optimize their supply chain planning to maximize the return on investment. Getting the right product, at the right place, at the right time, and at the right price has become a basic necessity. Apart from these business challenges, organizations today are struggling to keep IT costs under control. Adding to this challenge is the lack of standards in a complex, highly customized IT environment, which leads to integration difficulties and makes any additional development cumbersome and expensive. The critical risks organizations face today: ?Product complexity ?Shortening of product life cycles ?Extended supply chain ?Managing multi-channel operations ?Process complexity ? demand volatility High ?Increasing lead times ? sales and brand erosion due to stock outs Lost ?Highly competitive and margin sensitive industry It is vital to respond to these challenges and proactively meet fluctuations within the demand and supply chain. Organizations can tackle supply chain challenges with the following strategies: ?Flexibility, scalability and integrated supply chain processes to manage the consumer-centric global supply Chain. ?Optimizing decision making processes across the supply chain by addressing the dynamic nature of demand, sub-optimized plans, and sub-standard customer service levels. ?Optimizing distribution and production planning with an enhanced Sales & Operation Plan (S&OP). ?Collaborative visibility into all critical functional areas for comprehensive optimization of processes ?Planning that is integrated and executable with total demand visibility.3 © 2012, HCL Technologies.

  4. 4. Creating value across Supply Chain ?Leverage and extend the value of the current transaction system and seamless integration of the supply chain solution with the ERP or legacy system. ?Improve the customer service level, order fill rate, inventory availability and asset utilization. ?Decrease safety stock and overstock to optimize inventory and carrying cost Key trends across the supply chain and new strategies to keep pace: Customer Driven Responsive Supply Chain HCL offers a complete supply chain planning and optimization specialized suite with the right capabilities to enable a customer driven value chain. A customer driven supply chain begins with the right insights into the buying behavior. It also provides one view of demand to drive every single plan within an enterprise and across the value chain, ultimately enabling synchronized decisions by all stakeholders from manufacturing, distribution to store operations. Integrated Business Planning Collaboration Logistics Demand Supply One Synchronized View Collaboration, Visibility and Monitoring ERP Shelf Connected Supply Chain The objective of collaborative planning at the shelf for both retailers and manufacturers is to serve the consumer at an optimal cost. This process calls for the retailer to conduct macro-level floor planning to determine the amount of shelf space required by supplier. This will help in quick responses to consumer choices at the shelf and across all buying channels. A shelf connected supply chain allows both manufacturers and retailers to maximize revenue, eliminate stock outs while removing any additional cost across the supply chain. To do this effectively, the industry needs a new breed of technology that can be scaled up cost- effectively to handle vast amounts of data across the value chain to drive accurate decision making. Organizations today are taking on new4 © 2012, HCL Technologies. Reproduction Prohibited. This document is protected under Copyright by the Author, all rights reserved.
  5. 5. Creating value across Supply Chain processes that connect the virtual shelf to the entire supply chain, enabling them to develop localized assortments, shorten cycle times, set profitable flow strategies, reduce inventories, trim costs and improve shelf availability. Collaboration on Forecasting and Store Replenishment Strategies Retailers frequently come across large gaps in order patterns resulting from their decision to change service levels, safety-stock settings, lead times, transportation modes and order parameters. Collaborating around replenishment policy and store-level forecasts allows both the supplier and retailer to better manage merchandise flow. Shelf Analytics Retailers today are not just leveraging historic data, but are adopting new practices and solutions to analyze the shelf with an eye on the future. Root cause analysis to identify phantom/ghost inventory, inappropriate ordering parameters, inaccurate demand forecasts, insufficient shelf- space allocation and poor in-store execution is conducted to identify which items are likely to be out of stock. Leveraging this information, manufacturers can collaborate with retailers to adjust forecasting and replenishment parameters, and correct inventory inaccuracies.
