Supply chain strategy
Supply chain strategy
It is important that the supply chain strategy enables a performance that meets the requirements in the overall business plan. For instance if the business plan includes an aggressive growth plan it might be difficult to combine that with a supply chain strategy focusing on being cost efficient. A fundamental part is to understand which flexibility is needed in the supply chain to enable the overall targets. It is not until customer demand and need of flexibility is known that the strategy work can begin.
The basic questions to answer before developing solutions are
- What are the objectives?
- What are the order winners and qualifiers?
- What demand variation exist and how can this be handled?
- What are required service policies?
The supply chain design must evaluate if there is a need to change the overall supply chain network to meet the requirements (including ways for de-coupling and postponement to gain flexibility).
MYSIGMA has long experience in developing supply chain strategies and designing solutions supporting growth, flexibility and resource utilization in both manufacturing and retail industries.
