Supply Chain Management

2 day Workshop / Implementation depends on size of the company

In today's rapidly changing business environment, increasingly greater demands are being placed on businesses to provide products and services quicker - with greater added value - to the correct location - with no relevant inventory position. As the market becomes more and more competitive and global competition is the norm, organizations are struggling to find ways to streamline their operations and reduce annual operating costs. If organizations do not continually improve the efficiency of their operations, they will no longer be able to compete in the global market. Supply Chain Management is a new focus that organizations can exploit allowing them to become leaders with the ability to effectively compete in the global market.

The goal of Supply Chain Management is to optimize the benefits to each link in the supply chain. Supply Chain Management allows you to optimize your relationship with customers and suppliers by using Lean concepts, Value Stream Mapping, and e-Business to reduce cost and inventory, while shortening total cycle times. Customers want more quality, design, innovation, choice, convenience and service, all while wanting to reduce cost, effort, time, and risk.

The supply chain of an organization consists of different departments ranging from procurement of materials to customer service. Supply Chain Management means transforming a company's supply chain into an optimally efficient and customer-satisfying process where the effectiveness of the whole supply chain is more important than the effectiveness of each individual department.
