(aspect 3) Global challenges cannot just be taken care of in one sector. It takes a team and a good organizational plan to make sure the problems get taken care of.

(aspect 3) Our ability to deliver on this dramatic spike in demand within four days depended on our close relationships with our transportation partners, government officials and our supplier partners. Good relationships are the key to fixing a global problem with the help of logistics.

For manufacturers, this means designing supply networks to fulfill direct-to consumer demand, reaching the digital-mobile consumer and making transactions seamless, while personalizing the experience for the consumer. The report said in order to support these initiatives, CP manufacturers will need to improve their demand management capabilities, their ability to respond to variable demand, and their order management and route-to-market capabilities in a cost structure that does not erode margins.

n addition, effectively using customer data requires making an investment in a demand signal repository (DSR) to harmonize and cleanse retailer data so that it is usable for data analytics. The report noted data analytics using retailer consumption and inventory data today are examples of using "structured" data.

In Gartner's 2014 Trends in Manufacturing survey of 258 companies, 87 percent of respondents cited demand volatility as a medium to very large impediment to supply chain planning (SCP), outranking all other leading impediments cited, including demand and supply visibility, systems to convert data into insights and lack of talent.

Purpose - In manufacturing industries, the levels of inventories at all stages (i.e., raw material, work-in-process and finished goods inventories) indicate the firm's competitive positioning, strategies, internal processes and relationships with suppliers and downstream customers. We identify patterns of manufacturing industries based on levels of raw material and finished goods inventories to classify inbound and outbound supply chain strategies.
Kris Vucelich's comment, March 14, 2014 9:29 AM
We review literature on supply chain inventory strategy and perform cluster analysis to analyze patterns of manufacturing industries based on manufacturing industry data collected from US Census of Bureau. Strategies are a good way to keep your supply chain organized and flowing.

Supply Chains always drive up Coperate performance. Technology is a big part as to why this is so. Computer power made production a whole lot easier. More money goes to tech. .

Technology was believed to help lower all of the costs. Many believe it only helped us to stay afloat. Much of the movement is based on the increase in technolgy.
Kris Vucelich's comment, March 13, 2014 5:21 PM
Today, there are more challenges to managing these metrics trade-offs. The ability to improve revenue per employee has tapered off. Today, the pace of change is rapid. Businesses are larger and more global. Organizations are not aligned. The last decade was turbulent.
