Introduction to Supply Chain – 2 Days “A company that fails to manage its supply chain at a strategic level is unlikely to meet its business objectives effectively” Increased sophistication in customer requirements and greater competition, have pushed the industry towards higher and higher levels of efficiency in an effort to meet customer needs and cut costs. One of the results of this drive has been the outsourcing of goods and services to third parties, in a way that has inexorably bonded the supply chains of operators, contractors and suppliers. The question today is whether increased efficiency in the way individual companies are run is going to provide the industry with the performance improvements it seeks, or whether a new approach is needed which takes into account the whole Supply Chain. Supply Chain Management is about managing the flow of information, materials, services and money across any activity, in a way which maximizes the effectiveness of the process. It is about introducing new tools or revising well-known techniques in an effort to ask ourselves: "Is this the right thing to do" rather than "Is this the best way we can continue to do the same thing". This is a continuous process, not a one-time fix.
OBJECTIVES: This 2 day program explores the make up of an entire supply chain and how to get it to function effectively and meaningfully. An in- depth analysis of the major decisions that makes a supply chain viable. COURSE OUTLINE: What is Supply Chain Management? Network Design Methods Rough Cut Methods Supply Chain Decisions Location Decisions Production Decisions Inventory Decisions Transportation Decisions Supply Chain Modelling Approaches
Optimizing the Supply Chain for Profitability Logistics and the closely related concept of supply chain management underpin business or corporate strategy as far as the latter sets company objectives in sales, market share, share price, returns on shareholder funds, investment and assets, etc. Accordingly, the logistics function within most companies is a service activity which is directly responsible for achieving the above objectives. It is logistics which has a integrating and coordinating function designed to facilitate the production and / or distribution processes. It is these processes which ultimately reflect customer demand and the securing of the necessary raw materials and/or semi-finished goods for incorporation into production and the subsequent satisfaction of customer orders. The Logistics function may then be simply defined as satisfying the needs of the customer. "Introduction to Logistics and Supply Chain Management" is an introductory / first year course which assists students to understand the characteristic elements of integrated business logistics, the role and application of logistics principles to supply/demand/value chain management, the application of a selection of inventory management / analytical tools in solving logistics problems, aspects of strategic integrated logistics management and benchmarking and global integrated logistics activities.

The Theory of Constraints: A Practical Approachto Improving Supply Chain Flows Most visions do not inspire excitement and correct aligned action from the senior management team. To bring a company’s net profits to equal current sales within 4 years, every functional executive must be aligned towards rapid growth. Such achievement requires flawless logistics and a completely different marketing and sales approach. Competitive pressures force us to continuously do more for less. As work becomes more complicated, people lose focus on the overall goal and how they impact global results. Theory of Constraints (TOC) has been expanded for all organisations to maximize their throughput with minimum frustration and waste. The TOC is a set of holistic processes and insights and insights, all based on a systems approach that simplifies the improving and managing of complex organisations by focusing on the few physical and logical constraining “leverage” points. Furthermore, it provides a tool set to build and implement the “levers” (holistics rules) that synchrnise the parts to achieve an order of magnitude improvement in the performance of the system as a whole.

CUSTOMER-FOCUSED SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT ‘You can’t manage it if you don’t measure it’ is one of the oldest maxims around, yet is one that needs some significant new attention for companies involved with Logistics and Supply Chain Management projects.

Supplier Relationship Management: Keys to Greater Profitability and Competitive Advantage Introduction Continuous improvement in all aspects of the supply chain is necessary to remain competitive in todays global economy. The traditional adversarial relationship and transactional focus of buyers and suppliers cannot meet this demand for continuous improvement. As a result, significant changes are occurring in the philosophies and approaches that define the relationship between buyers and sellers in world-class organizations. Simply put, Supplier Relationship Management (SRM) provides an organizational focus on communicating and collaborating with suppliers on the many steps of the Supply Management process. This focus reduces the total cost of acquisition, transportation, and possession of goods and services for the benefit of both the buyer and seller while improving final product quality, value to the customer, and profitability to the organization.

Strategic Sourcing Strategies INTRODUCTION: The procurement function has changed dramatically over the last several years. And it continues to change and evolve almost daily. To know how well your organization is performing, you need numeric baselines or points of comparison. The baseline can be your prior years performance. But it is most helpful if you use the same key performance indicators (KPIs) as other organizations you benchmark with or those published by a research firm, such as Cost Savings, Managed Spend as a Percentage of Total Spend, Cost Savings as a Percentage of Managed Spend, Procurement Operating Costs as a Percentage of Managed Spend, Return on Investment, Percent of On-Time Supplier Deliveries, Supplier Defect Rate, Customer Satisfaction and Procurement Cycle Time OBJECTIVES: This 2 day program explores the makeup of an entire supply chain and how to get it to function effectively and meaningfully.

Cost Effective Material Handling (the bolt and nut of the supply chain) The concern is to be able to move the goods with speed and low cost. However because the handling activity must be repeated many times, what may be apparently minor inefficiencies in any one trip can add up to substantial diseconomies when taken over many products and over a period of time. One of the key aspects of material handling, and one of principal importance since the rise of retailers like Wal-Mart and Kmart in warehouse management has been the introduction of technology which has substantially improved efficiency and made Wal-Mart a model. One critical issue in material handling this course will address is ergonomics which has to do with matching the job and workplace to the worker instead of forcing the worker to adapt to a standardized workplace.

Transport Fleet Management Course – 3 Days Good fleet management can result in savings of a few percent, which can translate into millions of dollars on large projects.

Haulage is usually the single biggest fleet cost. As fuel prices rise, this will only rocket upwards. By starting with a good layout design for the overall site, the efficiency of haulage operations can be drastically increased. Roadways should be designed, constructed and maintained to reduce rolling resistance and inertia. These factors can have a large effect on fuel usage. If the roads are not in good condition, vehicles can experience excessive wear. With the rising costs in raw materials like rubber, consumables like tyres can be expensive to replace. Payload management is also essential to the optimisation process. The difference between the weight and density of the materials can be large, especially when comparing dry bulk density to wet loose density of the same substance. While hauling units or trucks have a clear maximum weight payload, fleet management involves more than just knowing what the maximum weight is. The body tray might need to be designed to accommodate the specific materials. Operators also need to understand the move from in situ dry bulk density to wet loose density.
The key to management is to know the realistic OUTLINE physical parameters involved during planning. Management personnel should also assign enough Fleet Management time for maintenance and servicing of equipment.
