Avoiding supply chain stumbles
Supply chain operations are under more pressure than ever to deliver efficiencies that enable the business to meet financial and growth objectives.
Pressure areas include:
- Customer retention. Ensuring the most optimal operating performance requires a renewed focus on processes that are likely leading to performance misses and impairing customer satisfaction.
- Change in product/marketing/customer demand and/or service strategy. These changes can knock the current supply chain out of sync, leaving it unable respond appropriately within its current design.
- Global expansion. Companies expanding into global markets have to understand optimal operational launch methods, joint venture scenarios, contract manufacturing options and near- and mid-term cost competitiveness strategies.
- Increased supply chain risk/regulatory/tax complexity. Greater operational complexity and geographically dispersed supply chains result in increased risk and sensitivity to interruption. Non-market forces continually introduce new operating restrictions, requirements and costs into the current supply chain.
