Frequently Asked Questions For Supply Chain Management

What Are the Two Types of Supply Chains?

The two types of supply chains are:

  1. Reactive supply chains, which are risky, because:
    1. Statistical modeling to plan for future demand is not used.
    2. Uncertain demand calls for reserve inventory, which ties up capital.
    3. Any operational, delivery, or customer service improvements are based on estimates or imitations of competitors.
    4. Changes are frequent and unexpected, causing rapid and disruptive responses.

These unnecessary results happen because reactive supply chains only respond to events that are happening currently, rather than proactively working to eliminate efforts and costs of potential events in the future.

  1. Data-Driven supply chains, which often see positive results, like:
    1. An improvement in accurate forecasts
    2. A reduction of safety stock requirements
    3. Best-in-class operations and efficiencies
    4. Better outbound logistics and on-time deliveries
    5. Data analytics that allow for smooth and predictive adaptation to changes
    6. A Higher EBIT margin (profits)

These benefits are due to a data-driven supply chain that collects, collates, and analyzes data to minimize complexity, maximize agility, eliminate waste, and deliver driving results, producing a competitive advantage.

What Are Supply Networks?

Supply chain networks are complex, cross-linked structures of both upstream and downstream organizational supply chains that involve the flow of both material and information. In other words, supply networks are a web of linking individual supply chains.

What Is the Difference Between a Supply Chain and a Supply Network?

A supply chain is a simple, sequential set of links. There are generally three links in a supply chain:

  1. Flow of raw materials from all upstream suppliers
  2. Transformation of raw materials into finished products
  3. Distribution of products to all downstream customers 

 

A supply network is a linked web of all participating supply chains, both upstream and downstream organizations, that are involved in the flow of both material and information. 

Supply chain networks present specific challenges for meeting consumer demands. Some of these challenges are to figure out the best, most cost-effective way of doing these three things:

  1. Evaluating the functionality and influence of technologies
  2. Supporting and managing change for increasing value
  3. Making decisions based on a dynamic configuration

What Is a Supply Chain Management Network?

A supply chain management network is the design and support of the infrastructure and structural layout of a supply chain. It entails deciding on and implementing the number, location, and size of plants and warehouses. Details of each must be considered for the producer, distributor, and merchant of the product.

Management of a supply chain network covers the full spectrum of movement and storage of raw materials, work-in-process inventories, and finished goods from origin to consumption. This must all be done as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

What Are the Objectives of Supply Chain Management?

The objective of supply chain management is, ultimately, to meet demand. However, there are many other objectives that must be met first before that can happen. 

Those objectives are meant to improve:

  • Efficiency with logistics 
  • Quality of product and customer experience
  • Stability in all upstream and downstream relationships
