Make Your Supply Chain Work in Your Favor

Today, supply chains are very complex and span multiple processes and organizations. In order to manage your supply chain to make it work in your favor, you have to first identify the major issues that you are facing. Where exactly, in your chain, are you facing the issue? You have to look at all possible aspects:

 Sourcing

 Inventory

 Logistics/Distribution

 Packaging

 Manufacturing

 Quality Control

 Demand Management

 Customer Service

Managing your supply chain involves managing processes on both the supplier and consumer sides as well as managing your internal work. It involves flow of both information and materials.

The plan you create must include timely sourcing of the right quantity of materials from each of your suppliers and finished goods from the manufacturing facilities that go out to your customers (which goes hand in hand with absolute inventory control), implementing standard operating procedures (SOP) for manufacturing and quality control, determining your demand and appropriately manufacturing the right quantity of goods. Your company’s supply chain group should include packaging and distribution of your goods to warehouses in all their supply chain planning processes, in addition to planning of product going out to the retail outlets as well as after sale markets.

You also have to consider how you will deal with returned materials from your customers and how and when to return materials to your suppliers. Moreover, you have to ensure that all elements work well together in unison and that no process will hinder another.
