The Covid 19 pandemic made “supply chain” a household word. It became apparent there was a fragile link between the companies that produced goods and services, and their customers. Because of that fragile link, shortages appeared everywhere from automobiles to furniture, toys and bicycles. And they had a profound impact.

Topical Coverage in More Detail:

  • To better understand a network, supply chain managers begin by creating diagrams or Maps, such as Value Stream Maps. These maps display major steps in a process from first and second tier suppliers through the focal firm to warehouses and distribution centers.
  • Using these maps, the focus then turns to the integration of major steps and key parties in the network such they perform as a well-oiled machine. The goal is for every part of the network from suppliers to the focal firm, to warehouses, and distributions centers to work together.
  • There is, of course, inventory stored across the Supply Chain and inventory not only is costly to hold, but it is also considered an idle resource. So, managers must be proactive in managing Inventory across the supply chain. The question is, where should inventory be stored and how much of should be stored in each location?
  • As activities are outsourced across the globe, the movement of goods between players, called Logistics, must be managed. And as customers demand better service, even same day service, logistics becomes an important factor in not only delivering the product but delivering customer satisfaction.
  • Clearly it takes time to move orders through the supply chain network, and one of the objectives in Supply Chain Management is to shorten the time from the first step in the process – often traced to first tier and second-tier suppliers – until that time when the product or service is delivered to the customer. This is referred to as Cycle Time.
  • One of the most important steps in managing the design of the Supply Chain network is find the right or best suppliers. This is called Sourcing. So the challenge is to find them, and once found how to ensure that they maintain their performance levels. This is a major area of responsibility and referred to as Sourcing.
  • Because supply chain networks spread responsibility across many parties and across many geographic regions, performance Risk is a real issue. This is especially true since that performance of many if not most of the parties is not under the direct control of the focal firm. In short, the more entities that are involved the greater are the number of things that can go wrong. Managing this risk is an important prat of the supply chain manager’s area of responsibility.
  • Without information there can be little, if any, integration. When information is scarce, one stage in the process is unaware of the progress made or the problems incurred at previous or follow-on stages. Unless data is collected across the network and unless the appropriate parties have access to that information, it will be challenging if not impossible to coordinate process flow across the network. So, the modern network is dependent on software packages such as ERP and MRP. It is these packages that manage the collection and sharing of data.
  • Effective management of the Supply Chain network depends upon the nature of the Relationship that is established between the focal firm and key players in the network. Without active management of those relationships’ integration, quality, cycle time, and even risk can suffer.
  • In a perfect world, demand for finished products and services would not vary. Purchasing materials, scheduling, quality assurance, and logistics would all be relatively simple. Unfortunately, a perfect world does not exist. Demand varies and Supply Chain management must consider strategies to absorb these fluctuations while maintain some stability in the process itself. Demand Management involves strategies for balancing demand and supply within the context of realistic market fluctuations and supply chain capabilities.
  • Policies of free shipping and free returns have both positive and negative consequences. From a positive perspective they have been associated with higher sales and better customer satisfaction. But from a negative perspective they have added considerable expense especially to online retailing firms as customers often order more than what they really need and return what is unwanted. Supply chain managers need to work with marketing to determine how liberal these policies should be and how returns – often called reverse logistics – should be managed. There are many alternatives from adding the product back to stock, selling the returns to resellers, or sending them directly to landfills.
  • Yet, once a Supply Chain network has been designed and optimized, there are changes that will inevitably have to be addressed. So, the Supply Chain manager must be willing and capable of taking the steps to Continually Improve the network. Many companies formalize this approach by establishing continuous improvement positions.
