Why Supply Chain Management

Leading practices in supply chain planning and management are many and varied. These practices include everything from sales and operations planning, to material requirements planning, and demand management to vendor-managed inventory. New principles and practices in supply chain management are constantly emerging.

Rather than incorporate as many leading/new practices as possible, the best supply chain management approach is to pick practices which are appropriate to the organisation and the markets it serves. Those good practices should be integrated with the organisation’s existing processes and technology platform to achieve desired competitive performance.

According to APICS, the American Production and Inventory Control Society, the application of best practice to the supply chain may result in sustained outcomes such as:

  • 10% improvement in manufacturing cost (labour productivity and product yield)
  • 25% reduction in excess and obsolete inventory
  • 20% improvement in delivery reliability
  • 90% of new products launched on time
  • 50% faster response to significant unplanned demand events.
