What is Supply Chain Management?

What is Supply Chain Management?

A network between a business and its suppliers used to produce and distribute a specific commodity is called a supply chain. Supply chain management is the overseeing of that entire production and distribution flow to maximize quality, customer experience, and profitability.  

It sounds simple but managing a supply chain can have its challenges. Here’s why: potential risks. Every supply chain comes with a diverse set of potential risks that can hurt your workers and your wallets.  

Why is supply chain management important?  

Supply chain management’s ultimate goal is to take a complex scope of business activities and transform them into strategic capabilities, aligned processes, and stronger relationships—improving an organization’s performance and competitiveness.  

One of the ways to do this is by reducing incidents and worker liabilities. From entertainment to construction to the airline industry, safety hazards are everywhere—but they can be prevented and prepared for if they do occur. Worksites are safer when workers have greater visibility into safety practices, and when companies have only the most qualified and trained workers on site. 

By managing the supply chain, companies can cut excess costs and deliver products to the consumer faster. When production is seamless and error-free, the product is made and packaged at a much faster rate than if there were faulty/dangerous working conditions.  

Having a supply chain management process in place also helps companies build relationships with a network of contractors and suppliers. When you have an effective management system in place, your process can help vet the appropriate people for the job who are highly qualified and understand the rules. 

How does supply chain management work? 

In supply chain management, a supply chain manager coordinates all six aspects of the supply chain such as: 

  1. Planning—Plan out all resources needed to meet customer demand and deliver a product or service. Your plan should include metrics that will indicate if the supply chain is efficient, effective, delivers value to customers, and meets company goals. 

  1. Sourcing—Choose reliable and fully vetted suppliers to provide the goods and services needed to create the product. Once you have suppliers in place, you can establish processes to monitor and manage relationships. 

  1. Manufacturing—Put in place the resources required to accept raw materials, manufacture the product, test for quality, package for shipping, and schedule for delivery. 

  1. Delivery & Logistics—Coordinate orders, schedule deliveries, invoice customers, and accept payments. 

  1. Returning—Design a network or process to easily take back defective, excess, or unwanted products. 

  1. Enabling—Set up processes to monitor information throughout the supply chain and assure compliance with all regulations. Processes are needed in all areas such as finance, HR, IT, facilities, portfolio management, product design, sales, and quality assurance. 

An Example of Successful Supply Chain Management: 

The telecommunications FastTrac wanted lower insurance costs and better service. Through the Avetta Marketplace and our specialized relationships with over 100k suppliers, FastTrac connected with USA Telecom Insurance Providers. The relationship and proven supply chain management strategies resulted in lower premiums and better solutions for FastTrac—saving the company $10k in insurance fees and streamlining their COI approval process.  

Avetta’s platform provides solutions to all these challenges. In fact, clients have reported a decline in onsite incidents using Avetta—all at a low costs and easy access to supplier information and certifications.

What to Do about These 6 Supply Chain Risks in Asia

Submitted by c.higgins on Wed, 09/15/2021 - 07:18

What to Do about These 6 Supply Chain Risks in Asia

There are numerous benefits to having all or part of your supply chain based in Asia. Lower costs, higher and faster output, and easy market expansion opportunities are just a few of them. But like any other part of the world, Asia also carries potential supply chain risks. Knowing what they are will allow you to mitigate as many of them as possible.

Avetta’s supply chain experts know Asia’s supply chain risks and the consequences for companies whose supply chains pass through Asia and the Pacific. We’re here to inform your organization so that, with good preparation, you can have success in that particular part of the world.

Below are six potential supply chain risks in Asia.

1. Asia-Area Legislation

Each country’s evolving regulatory changes and shifting industrial policies can affect the critical pace and trajectory of supply chains. Whether the legislation affects human rights, food, due diligence, the environment, or other factors, supply chains in Asia must be ready to adapt.

With Asia’s new free trade agreement, RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership), Asia is now in direct competition with Europe as the largest global trade player. This deal cements and expands China’s trading relationship with the world.

Another area of legislation and reform that has gained attention is in the labor sector. Some believe labor markets in Asia are too rigid or believe particular policies inhibit employment creation. Watch for the supply chain in Asia to grow and make changes to human capital policies in the coming years. 

2. Safety and Security

According to the World Bank, South Asia owns only 10% of the world’s automobiles but suffers 27% of the world’s traffic deaths. These deaths and injuries negatively affect the workforce, and the transportation delays negatively affect supply chain logistics. Regional security challenges also play a role, with terrorism, maritime disputes, and human trafficking all taking a heavy toll.

When it comes to occupational safety, ASEAN-OSHNET has identified and is working across its ten countries to implement various projects that include deeper research, better training, and more regular inspections. Ideally, these initiatives should improve safety and security for workers throughout Asia and make the supply chain even more reliable.

However, some experts say, “ASEAN’s impact is limited by a lack of strategic vision, diverging priorities among member states, and weak leadership.” Any safety and security concerns inevitably lead to supply chain challenges.

3. Poor Local Water and Energy Conditions

Water security (the availability of clean water) is a clear concern in Asia. Companies may have (1) difficulty with sick employees, (2) higher operating costs due to an inadequate supply of water, or (3) more expenses because they must pay to purify contaminated water. Unfortunately, the water conditions are likely to worsen as climate change increasingly challenges Asian countries.

Additionally, energy security (access to affordable energy) is a top concern across the continent. The changing energy expectations, evolving environmental concerns, and uptick in demand have all contributed to energy supply shortages and volatile prices. 

4. Shortages of Raw Materials

Almost across the board, we are seeing a shortage of raw materials affecting supply chains in Asia. Here are a few of the most recent examples:

5. Disruptions to Distribution

Both natural and human-made disasters seem to regularly afflict parts of Asia. Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, floods, nuclear accidents, and protests are not uncommon and threaten to disrupt distribution. 

There are plenty of other factors that challenge distribution in many industries ranging from mining, transportation, and logistics to consumer-facing skincare and luxury goods. The five most notable are:

  1. Material shortages (as mentioned above)
  2. Worker shortages 
  3. Planning issues
  4. Cash-flow issues
  5. Drops in demand

6. Lack of Proper Vetting Practices

Many of the above five Asian supply chain risks can be mitigated through proper vetting practices of all suppliers, vendors, and contractors along Asian supply chains. But this practice is not nearly as common as it should be.

All countries, including those in Asia, have objectives and ways of conducting business that may not only carry the potential of reputational fallout but that also may not safeguard against liability.

To avoid these risks, prequalifying partners in Asia is pertinent. Prequalifying partners significantly reduces not only known Asia supply chain risks but hidden ones that can catch any supply chain off guard and create larger problems. 

Avetta Mitigates Supply Chain Risks in Asia

All over the world, Avetta helps supply chain professionals maintain a safe, healthy, uninterrupted, and profitable supply chain from beginning to end.

How do we do that? By:

Avetta’s easy-to-use and fully configurable platform makes managing supply chain safety, sustainability, and risk easier than ever before. The industries we serve include aerospace, chemical, construction, entertainment, facility management, telecommunications, transportation, and more.

100 Great Supply Chain Partners of 2021: It Takes a Team to Win

Submitted by c.higgins on Thu, 08/05/2021 - 09:31

100 Great Supply Chain Partners of 2021

One thing’s for certain, in this otherwise entirely unpredictable world of supply and demand: companies looking to succeed in commerce today can’t do it alone.

Never before has there been a more pressing need for suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and retailers to reach out to their universe of vendor partners that make up global supply chains. Customer demands for flawlessly reliable service are intensifying, and can’t be met without the cooperation and support of every stage that’s required to get product to market.

So when a buyer of materials, products or services encounters an especially valuable provider, it’s important to recognize that entity. Hence our annual focus on “100 Great Supply Chain Partners.”

The value of the list lies in the criterion for inclusion: vendors must be nominated by their customers. Such testimonials are the true measure of whether a company is living up to its marketing and P.R. claims. They tell us how providers are functioning in the real world.

What makes a “great” supply chain partner? Over the years, we’ve consistently identified 10 characteristics that make vendors stand out from the crowd. They’ll be familiar to anyone who manages global supply chains, or for that matter any type of business: reliability, service excellence, value, knowledge of the customer’s business, problem-solving skills, an attitude of continuous improvement, solid after-sales support, a positive “can-do” attitude, global reach, and strong leadership.

The crises of the last year and a half have only served to underscore the need for these stellar qualities. Businesses that made it through the pandemic and subsequent economic freefall did so in large part by relying on their networks of trusted vendors. Often they would be asking providers for a degree of loyalty, reliability and service that was unimaginable prior to the arrival of COVID-19. Even as the virus is subsiding — and at this moment, we’re not entirely certain that it is — the requirements for acceptable service are only growing more intense. Many of the shopping patterns and expectations that end-customers adopted during the pandemic are permanent. The omnichannel is here to stay. E-commerce will continue to grab ever-larger portions of retail sales. Sellers’ ability to deliver orders within a day or two will be taken for granted. Innovations in technology, especially in the areas of analytics, automation, digitization and artificial intelligence, will proceed apace.

Our annual issue on 100 Great Supply Chain Partners offers more than a list. In these pages, you’ll find a variety of actual case studies that drive home the nature of true partnerships in difficult times, and offer valuable lessons for others to follow. Drawn from testimonials by nominating businesses, they range over multiple industries and a wide variety of products and services. But all display the kind of attention to service that’s key to successful partnerships today.

Businesses looking to survive the next round of disruptions — and who can say what form those will take? — will continue to grapple with the challenge of ensuring supply chain resilience. They’ll be doing it with the help of solid partnerships. Global supply chain management is, after all, a team sport, and the contribution of each player is vital. Winning in the most challenging of times depends on recruiting partners that are nothing less than “great.”

Pułapki w cyklu życia łańcucha dostaw

Submitted by c.higgins on Wed, 06/23/2021 - 11:13

Share This Articles

Pułapki w cyklu życia łańcucha dostaw

Każdy z etapów łańcucha dostaw obejmuje szereg głównych kroków i działań w łańcuchu dostaw,  które muszą przebiegać bezbłędnie, aby łańcuch dostaw mógł płynnie działać. Niestety, każdy etap, krok i działanie to również możliwość pojawienia się problemów.

Aby zachować nadzór i kontrolę nad całym łańcuchem dostaw, Twoi pracownicy i menedżerowie muszą wiedzieć, jakie zagrożenia drzemią w powierzonych im obowiązkach. W tym poście na blogu firma Avetta wymienia pułapki, które mogą pojawić się na wszystkich etapach łańcucha dostaw, a także sposoby, w jakie możemy pomóc w ich uniknięciu.

Etap łańcucha dostaw 1. Zaopatrzenie

Pierwszy etap łańcucha dostaw, zaopatrzenie, obejmuje zgromadzenie i zaplanowanie wszystkich składników potrzebnych do produkcji towaru.

Sześć głównych kroków zaopatrzenia to:

  1. Budowa solidnych relacji zaopatrzeniowych.
  2. Kalkulacja kosztów surowców, składników i opakowań.
  3. Negocjacja umów i upewnienie się, że dostawcy są w stanie spełnić wymagania w zakresie zgodności, zapotrzebowania i zysków.
  4. Odebranie towarów.
  5. Autoryzacja faktur i zapłacenie dostawcom.
  6. Uzyskanie wszystkich niezbędnych zaświadczeń i dokumentów do celów referencyjnych i kontrolnych.

Potencjalne problemy, które mogą pojawić się podczas tego pierwszego etapu łańcucha dostaw,  obejmują:

  • Brak zgodności dostawców lub słabe zarządzanie dokumentacją dotyczącą zgodności. Jedno i drugie stanowi duże zagrożenie dla działania łańcucha dostaw, jakości produktów i reputacji marki.
  • Zmiana kosztów i dostępności surowców, składników oraz opakowań już po rozpoczęciu produkcji.
  • Czas i koszty związane ze zmianą dostawców, lokalizacji dostaw, projektu opakowań, tras transportu itp.
  • Napięte relacje z dostawcami z powodu niezaspokojonego zapotrzebowania.

Etap łańcucha dostaw 2. Produkcja

Produkcja jest drugim  etapem łańcucha dostaw i obejmuje wszystkie działania wymagane do zaplanowania i wyprodukowania towarów zgodnie z zapotrzebowaniem dystrybutora.

Cztery główne kroki produkcji to:

  1. Zabezpieczenie surowców, składników i wyrobów gotowych podczas magazynowania, przenoszenia i transportu za pomocą właściwych opakowań.
  2. Przekształcanie surowców i składników w produkt końcowy.
  3. Testowanie i ulepszanie produktu końcowego.
  4. Utylizacja składników jednorazowych i odpadów.

Problemy, które mogą wystąpić na drugim etapie łańcucha dostaw, obejmują:

  • Niedokładne prognozy zapotrzebowania skutkujące niezaspokojonym zapotrzebowaniem i obniżonymi zyskami.
  • Niedokładne lub czasochłonne zarządzanie zapasami, które może prowadzić do niedoborów, nadmiaru zapasów i nieokreślonych szkód.
  • Nieefektywne zakłady produkcyjne, wysokie koszty produkcji i zmienne warunki ekonomiczne obniżające zyski i ogólne zadowolenie klientów.
  • Trudność w zapewnieniu wykwalifikowanej siły roboczej.
  • Koszt wdrożenia automatyki i robotyki.
  • Trudność w identyfikowaniu potencjalnych klientów, zarządzaniu nimi i ustalaniu ich priorytetów.
  • Awarie maszyn, upadki w miejscu pracy i inne wypadki powodujące szkody dla pracowników, opóźniające produkcję i narażające firmę na procesy sądowe.

Etap łańcucha dostaw 3. Dystrybucja

Dystrybucja to trzeci etap łańcucha dostaw. Działania na tym etapie obejmują wszystko, co jest potrzebne, aby dostarczyć gotowy produkt do dystrybutora zewnętrznego (jeśli nie jest sprzedawany bezpośrednio), tak aby klienci mogli go kupić.

Trzy główne kroki dystrybucji to:

  1. Ocena klienta pozwalająca określić najlepszy sposób sprzedawania mu produktów.
  2. Wybór kanału dystrybucji – bezpośrednio, sprzedawcy detaliczni, hurtownicy, brokerzy lub ich połączenie.
  3. Identyfikacja pośredników ds. marketingu i dystrybucji, zbudowanie z nimi relacji oraz zarządzanie nimi.

Oto niektóre z pułapek na etapie dystrybucji, na które należy uważać:

  • Niepewne i zmienne koszty, które obejmują kanały globalne. Koszty mogą się zmieniać w zależności od cen paliwa, pogody i klęsk żywiołowych, niepokojów politycznych, taryf i wyceny waluty.
  • Zaniedbanie bezpieczeństwa danych powodujące wyciek poufnych informacji firmy i danych osobowych jej klientów.
  • Zanieczyszczenie lub utrata produktu podczas transportu. Może to być spowodowane zatonięciem statków, składnikami wrażliwymi na temperaturę/wilgotność, wypadkami drogowymi, pożarami, kradzieżami itp.

Etap łańcucha dostaw 4. Uzupełnianie

Uzupełnianie obejmuje uzupełnienie zapasu surowców od dostawców oraz zaopatrzenie centrów dystrybucyjnych w gotowe produkty.

Cztery główne kroki uzupełniania to:

  1. Prognozowanie zapotrzebowania na podstawie wzorców zakupowych klientów, wiedzy rynkowej i możliwości, które mają wpływ na sprzedaż.
  2. Prognozowanie czasów realizacji przez analizę historii czasów realizacji, odchylenia zapotrzebowania, sezonowość i niezawodność dostawców.
  3. Optymalizacja cyklu zamówień pod kątem towarów wolnozbywalnych, tanich i kupowanych w pakietach.
  4. Zarządzanie poziomem usług w oparciu o algorytmy, które chronią zapasy przed korektami i błędami.

Rzeczy, na które należy zwrócić uwagę na etapie uzupełniania zapasów:

  • Niepewne czasy realizacji dostawców, które są znacznie dłuższe lub znacznie krótsze niż prognozowane.
  • Nieoczywista i nieoczekiwana sezonowość produktów.
  • Niedokładna analiza cyklu zamówienia, która skutkuje nieoczekiwanymi dodatkowymi kosztami z powodu konieczności składania zamówień częściej lub rzadziej niż wcześniej planowano.

Etap łańcucha dostaw 5. Zwroty

Zwroty to piąty etap łańcucha dostaw. Polega na tym, że klienci zwracają do dostawcy wadliwe, uszkodzone, przeterminowane lub niechciane towary.

Pięć głównych kroków na etapie zwrotów obejmuje:

  1. Ponowne wprowadzanie produktów do księgi zapasów.
  2. Przepakowywanie towarów lub ich utylizacja, w zależności od możliwości ich ponownego wykorzystania.
  3. Śledzenie i monitorowanie rodzajów zwrotów i ich ilości.
  4. Zapewnianie obsługi i wsparcia dystrybutorom oraz klientom.
  5. Odzyskiwanie wartości z używanych towarów i skasowanych materiałów.

Problemy pojawiające się na etapie zwrotów to:

  • Trudność w planowaniu nadmiernych zwrotów w przypadku wycofania produktów na dużą skalę lub nagłej zmiany popytu.
  • Ewentualna potrzeba usprawnienia procesu kontroli jakości, co może mieć wpływ na wiele etapów łańcucha dostaw.
  • Przepisy dotyczące gospodarowania odpadami i zgodności, których należy przestrzegać, aby uniknąć kar i grzywien.
  • Utrata zysków ze zwróconych zapasów.
  • Konieczność znalezienia powierzchni magazynowej na zwracane towary.

Pozwól firmie Avetta pomóc zoptymalizować działania w ramach łańcucha dostaw

Ze względu na wiele problemów, które mogą pojawić się w całym łańcuchu dostaw, warto skorzystać z profesjonalnej pomocy.
