Without people, raw materials, finished goods, spare parts, tools, equipment, technology and funding, you will not be able to:
- Bring your Supply Chain Processes to life
- Operate a world-class Supply Chain Network
- Deliver a globally-competitive Supply Chain Strategy
- Achieve your Corporate Strategy.
Establishing, reviewing and optimising supply chain resource requirements answers questions like:
- How many staff do I need to operate all of our supply chain processes and value-adding operations throughout our supply chain network?
- What are the roles and responsibilities of our supply chain staff?
- How can we optimise, balance or reduce our inventory throughout our supply chain network?
- Where should we put the inventory throughout the supply chain network and how can we increase inventory turns?
- What strategic supplier arrangements do we require or how do we improve the arrangements we currently have?
- How should we be categorising the goods and services we buy?
- What technology do we need to better manage our supply chain network and processes?
- How can we maximise utilisation of existing technology?
- What tools and equipment do our staff need; where should we store tools and equipment; and how should we manage them?
- How can we better manage our supply chain funds and expenses?
- How can we increase the return on our supply chain working capital?
