Supply Chain Systems Design


Supply Chain Planning Systems

All supply chain systems are not created equally. In terms of efficiency, performance and cost-effectiveness, there can be huge differences from one to the next. Every link within the supply chain has its own unique impact on the business as a whole. The basic design of any given supply chain will determine its competitiveness, sustainability and overall value for the organisation. Supply chain systems must take into account design, sourcing, production, warehousing, distribution and transportation – every key process from beginning to end. Unless each element is equally capable, reliable and efficient, effective supply chain management simply isn’t possible.

Discover how the most effective supply chain planning systems are designed, what constitutes supply chain efficiency and how to use scoring models to increase your organisation’s ROI. Study the importance of strategic facility location, alternative options to locating new facilities and how to choose a geographic region. This tutorial is ideally suited to senior management, business owners and anyone with an interest in studying the basics of supply chain management.
